Car Shipping Toronto

Shipping a Car to Toronto from the United States

When moving from the United States to Canada, many people elect to bring their personal vehicle along, taking advantage of the similar road systems and vehicular regulations between the two nations. The importation of cars and other motor vehicles is governed by a set of rules, regulations, and taxes. Rather than wade through the minutia and legal jargon, let A-1 Auto Transport take the guesswork out of the process. With two decades of expertise and knowledge in auto importation services, A-1 is the leader in shipping to Toronto and beyond.

Here is everything you need to know about shipping your car from the United States to Toronto, Canada.

Location

Toronto sits in the province of Ontario, close to the US’s northeast border. As Canada’s commercial capital and most populous city, Toronto is serviced by a well-developed road and rail system. The city is a major hub for continued transportation throughout much of Canada.

What are the shipping options available?

  • Roll On/Roll Off Shipping (Ro/Ro): An affordable choice for most vehicles, this option involves driving directly aboard the truck, train or other shipping vessels, and off again at the destination. The car is held in place with strong straps during transit.
  • Container Shipping: In this type of shipping, a one-vehicle or two-vehicle container is used for transportation. Your vehicle will be safely strapped down inside the container during transit. Though container shipping is more expensive than Ro/Ro, the added protection may be desired for antiques or otherwise highly valuable cars.

Consider as well which delivery option works best for you. With door-to-door service, the shipper will pick up and transport your car from your doorstep to the destination location of your choice. Terminal-to-terminal services are more affordable, but require you to drop the car off yourself at the nearest local shipping terminal and pick it up after arriving in Toronto.

What documents will be required?

Shipping routes from the US to Toronto are frequently traveled, and fortunately, the process has been considerably streamlined. You’ll only need a couple of simple documents to complete the process:

  • The original title of the vehicle.
  • Photo ID.

If you do not have the original vehicle title, a DMV-certified copy may be accepted. As per the US Customs 72 Hour Export Law, a copy of the title also needs to be sent to the border crossing your vehicle will be passing through, at least 72 hours in advance.

What are Canadian Customs requirements?

Save time and confusion at the border by ensuring that you can satisfy Canadian Customs regulations. Check out the list of specifics on the Canada Border Services Agency website. Also, view the Canadian Registrar of Imported Vehicles for an overview of exactly which cars are admissible into Canada.

Preparedness Checklist

Is your vehicle ready for shipping? Make sure these steps have been followed:

  • Expedite the inspection process by giving the car a good cleaning, inside and out.
  • Remove all personal effects from the car.
  • Ensure that the foot brake and e-brake are both fully functional.
  • Remove or lower any antennae that may be extending from the vehicle.
  • Fill the fuel tank roughly 25 percent full (any more is just unnecessary weight).
  • Shut off the theft alarms to conserve battery life.

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!
