Ship Car To St. Catharines

Ship Car To St. Catharines
🇨🇦 Canada, (CA)

St. Catharines is the largest city in the Niagara area of Canada and is called the garden city because of the large gardens and parks that stream through the city. For employment, General Motors of Canada and many manufacturing and industrial companies have brought many new jobs to the area in the last decade. People from around the world flock to the city for employment as well as tourism. There are two major interstates coming into the city as well as a large shipping port on the Welland Canal that allows motor vehicle owners the convenience of shipping a car to the city easily. Due to so many people relocating to the city from the U.S. and other countries, there has been a massive restructure for housing developments and finding affordable housing is generally easily accomplished. The roadways are in good condition and St. Catharines is one of the few cities in Canada that has an electric streetcar route. When it’s time for you to relocate your own car to the city for the convenience of getting around easily and without having to pay for a rental or for public transportation, you will need to hire a professional auto transport company to ship the car for you.

Shipping a Car the Easy Way.

Shipping a car from the United States to St. Catharines does not have to be a difficult process at all. When you speak to an agent at A-1 Auto Transport you can rest assure that your car will be handled with care and the shipping process will be seamless and easily accomplished. The agent will need some information from you like your driver’s license and social security numbers. They will also need you to sign a power of attorney to let them transport the car for you. You will be given information on shipping insurance that is included in the shipping contract. If you have an extremely expensive car you may want to add extra insurance coverage through your personal insurance carrier or purchase a marine insurance policy during shipment. The agent will let you know how to prepare your car for transport including cleaning the car inside and out, removing add-on attachments from the exterior like antennae and removable parts, charging your battery, disabling alarms, checking tire pressure and fluids and the level the gasoline needs to be during shipment. They will also let you know what transport routes are available both by interstate and sea shipping and how you can ship the car by either route. Your agent will assist you with necessary paperwork for customs and let you know what you need to have for the border crossing.

How to Ship a Car to St. Catharines.

Fortunately for shipping to St. Catharines you will be able to ship either by a roadway carrier or by a sea carrier. You will need to work with the agent to decide which will be most convenient for you and your car. The ways to ship are:

Roll/On Roll/Off- Also known as RORO or open shipping, this is the most common way to ship a car whether by roadway or by sea. With RORO, all types of motor vehicles are rolled onto the carrier for transport from the United States to Canada, and then easily rolled off when they reach St. Catharines, or the sea port nearby. For transport with RORO you will need to make sure your car is completely cleaned inside and out and that there are no personal items left behind prior to shipment.

Enclosed- Enclosed car shipping is best for valuable automobiles or shipments that will include personal belongings being shipped along with the car. Enclosed shipping services can be done either via an enclosed transport truck or in a shipping container aboard a sea ship. Cars, and other items, are loaded inside of the containerized carrier and then loaded onto a ship if going by sea. The container, or enclosed truck are unloaded when it reaches the destination in St. Catharines or the nearest seaport for pickup or transfer to a carrier.

Border Information.

When shipping a car to St. Catharines you will have to have the car ready for the border crossing and customs inspection. The border crossing will need a copy of your automobile title within 3 days prior to the cars expected date of crossing the border. Your shipping agent will assist you with making sure your paperwork is complete for both U.S. Customs as well as Canadian Customs and they will make sure the motor vehicle title has been delivered to the border crossing on time. You will have to pay import duties as well as taxes on your car when importing to St. Catharines, Canada and the car can be a new or a used car. Cars older than 10 years from the date of manufacture may be eligible for exemption from the import duties. Your automobile transport agent will be able to provide all information on fees that must be paid, paperwork that will need turned in and the scheduled dates of transport to the city.

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!
