How to Ship a Boat to Canada?

Whether you’re moving to Canada, or just want to enjoy your boat while in Canada on an extended vacation, there are plenty of companies that are willing to ship your boat from stateside or another country into Canada. Shipping services vary based on the company and the type of watercraft being shipped, but there are generally a few options available to choose from. Some people decide to pull their boat using a trailer and handle the shipping themselves, but often it’s more cost-effective and reliable to use a company instead.

Protect Your Investment with Professional Help

While traveling to pick up a boat using your own personal truck could cut transport costs initially, it’s often not worth the effort and could be a bad idea depending on the condition of your boat trailer. Fuel costs for long-distance transport can’t be discounted, and it’s vital to keep in mind the wear that a long-distance trip will put on your boat trailer. Professional shipping companies often rely on flat beds to avoid putting wear on a boat trailer, and this is often the best way to go for long-distance transport needs.

Pay RIV

There are taxes and duties due if you’re planning to move your boat to Canada from another country permanently. It’s important to plan for these costs when having the boat shipped so that you are prepared for them when the time comes. Most competent shipping companies will build this cost right into the quote provided, but it’s always a good idea to ask to make sure you know what the expected costs are for the full project.

Trailer or Tow Shipping

There are two different methods of shipping a boat over an extended distance. Towing it and moving it by trailer. Most customers prefer that a boat is trailered over a long distance to prevent wear on the trailer, but it’s possible to save on shipping costs by going with tow shipping instead.

Generally, it’s affordable to ship a small to mid-sized boat on a trailer, but once the boat gets to a certain size it becomes necessary to have it towed by a special truck or put into a very large container. It’s important to ask about size limitations when going over the available shipping methods with your prospective transport company to find out exactly how the boat is going to be moved.

No matter what you’ll be using your boat for in Canada, there are several different ways to move it to the country permanently or temporarily. Talk with a local shipping company about their services and how much they will cost you, and choose the one that provides the best value based on your specific needs.

Satisfied Customers

“Awesome! I had just a couple of days to get my car on a truck after the last company I tried left me hanging. Joe didn’t mind the short notice and got it to New Hampshire in 3 days flat. It was in great condition, just like I left it. The price was good and I was glad to have him in charge of the transport. I rarely meet such a trustworthy and professional man, especially in this industry. The driver also proved he knew what he was doing, following standard procedure like he’d done it a million times. He explained all his actions and reassured me nothing will happen to my car. If you want to transport your car anywhere in the US or outside, I highly recommend A1 Auto Transport. They provide a very comfortable experience, I was never pressured into anything, and the transport ran at my pace.”

“I called Joe a couple times, but he did not answer. 15 minutes later he returned my call apologizing and explaining he was speaking to another client. I asked him a few questions and requested a quote. While waiting for it, I called 2 more companies, so I’d have more options. The quote arrived by email a short time afterwards with a lot of details which convinced me we were speaking the same language. Because of this, I choose them to ship my Honda to Arkansas. Although one of the other quotes was $100 cheaper, the company seemed less reliable, and I didn’t want to risk it. A1 Auto Transport did a flawless job moving my baby, and from beginning to end, I had no complaints. It arrived a few hours earlier than promised in the exact condition I left it.”

“Joe really came through to get my car shipped. A1 Auto Transport is a transport company with a very good reputation. They answered every question I had and would always give a speedy reply to my texts or calls. I first sent them an email and their reply to it was fast also. On 04/12, the truck arrived to take my car, and it was estimated it would arrive at my new address in Texas a week later. However, it arrived 2 days early, on 04/17. There were a few misunderstandings due to its early arrival, but we thankfully got through them. My car arrived in great shape, no scratches or bumps. Joe took his time to make sure I was informed and ready to receive it.”

“Actually received a call from the driver about an hour after I sent the message and the car was delivered that night.Β The service and speed I received was unbelievable! To place an order on Saturday and receive my car on Tuesday from Arkansas to Michigan is just awesome.Β Best shipping I have experienced and I have shipped a few cars in the past. Thanks a bunch, K. Wesley Lehman, Bertram, Wesley, Inc.”

“Hey Michelle !!!! My car arrived yesterday (Saturday) at about noon. Hey lady, that'sΒ less than 48 hrs. You're the greatest....A1 is the greatest...I think I love you...Yahoo !!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Sincerely, Rocky' GiordaniΒ (the guy with the red Dodge Charger)”
