How Cars are transported to Trois-Rivieres
Cars can be transported with a variety of options available. The price of shipping will vary depending on the transport type, the distance from port to port or location and the weight of the car. Delivery dates also vary depending on scheduled shipping dates, customs and port officials and the time they may take for paperwork or car inspection, the weather, paperwork issues with incomplete paperwork and other factors. While the company will try to provide as accurate a delivery date as possible, be aware that these and other factors can delay or speed up delivery times. You will be given options on transport including open or enclosed carriers and possibly air freight depending on the kind of car you have and the location that it needs to be delivered. Open transport is the most common way to have a car shipped by land or sea. It is the fastest for delivery as well as the least expensive for cost. Your car will need to be empty when shipping on an open carrier. If you are making a complete relocation or need to transport any home or personal goods at the time you ship the car, and enclosed carrier is a beneficial type of shipping because it allows you to pack the container or enclosed truck as well as offering more protection than with open shipping. Enclosed transport can take longer for delivery due to there being fewer enclosed trucks on the road as well as fewer container ships on the sea routes.
Customs in Canada
When you are preparing to have your car shipped, your automobile transport agent will explain the rules for customs and crossing the border into Canada. Canadian Customs must have a copy of your motor vehicle title as well as your driver’s license when entering.

You can contact Transport Canada for further information on automobile conformity, vehicle registration and fees that you will need to pay for licensing and plates while in Canada.
