Location.

Canada’s capital sits in southern Ontario, at the confluence of three major rivers: the Ottawa, Gatineau, and Rideau. This is a popular location for expats, with over 20% of the city’s population being foreign-born. Being so close to the border means no lack of reliable vehicle transportation options, and the city boasts numerous rail and road connections to locations all over the USA.

Options for Transport.

Shipping to Ottawa takes two forms – pick the one that’s right for your needs:

  • Ro/Ro Shipping: Roll-on/roll-off services are economical and convenient for the bulk of customers. Your vehicle will be driven directly aboard the transport vessel, and off again once it reaches Ottawa. Straps secure the vehicles in place during transit.
  • Container Shipping: Vehicles may instead be loaded into cargo containers, which offer additional protection from damage and the elements. Those shipping antiques or other highly valuable vehicles may appreciate the safety factor.

The actual delivery can take two forms as well:

  • Terminal-to-Terminal: The vehicle will be dropped off by you at the port of departure, and picked up at the terminal in Ottawa upon arrival.
  • Door-to-Door: Door-to-door service brings the shipper to you. Your car will be collected at your home, and delivered to the point of your choosing in Ottawa.
Navigating Canadian Customs.

Check Canada’s Registrar of Imported Vehicles to ensure that your vehicle is permissible. Note as well that the 72 Hour Export Law requires you to submit a copy of the title to the border crossing at least 72 hours in advance. If everything is in order, make sure you can provide the following documents on arrival:

  • The vehicle’s original title, or a DMV-certified copy.
  • Notarized copy of your photo ID (passport or other).
  • Note that vehicles arriving in Ottawa from the US are subject to customs duties, which are dependent on value and other specifications. For full details, refer to the Canada Border Services Agency.
Final Preparations.

Completing the checks on this list will ensure that your vehicle is ready to roll:

  • Scrub and vacuum the vehicle thoroughly. This will speed along the inspection process considerably.
  • Remove all personal belongings and external fixtures like ski racks.
  • Ensure that both the foot and emergency brakes are working properly.
  • Fill the gas tank roughly one-quarter full.
  • Check the battery level, and disable the alarm system (otherwise, it’s likely to drain the battery during transit).

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
