Whether you’re a “snowbird” escaping the cold winter by going to your home in Florida, or you’re moving from Toronto to Florida permanently, there are a few things you should know about shipping your car from Florida to Toronto – read on for more details.
How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Car From Toronto To Florida?
The cost will vary between each shipping provider, but is usually no more than about $1,000 to $1,200 USD. Lots of things can affect the cost of shipping, however, including the time of year, whether you choose an enclosed or open-air shipping trailer, and the size and weight of your vehicle.

How Long Does It Take To Ship A Car From Toronto To Florida?
Typical transit time is about 2-4 days, but the entire process will take between 6-8 days in most cases, since most car transport companies will have to make multiple stops to pick up and deliver cars along the route from Toronto to Florida.
If you need faster service, it may be possible to get an express, rush delivery – but this is usually much more expensive, so it’s best to plan well in advance of when you will need your car to be shipped from Toronto to Florida.
What Will Happen At Customs When I Ship A Car From Toronto To Florida?
The process differs slightly if you’re shipping a car from Toronto to Florida temporarily, compared to shipping it permanently as part of a move from Canada to the United States. However, as long as you have provided the right documentation, your driver will have no issues bringing your car across the border.
If you’re temporarily taking your car into the US, your driver will need a letter of permission with information like your U.S. address, a copy of vehicle ownership/registration documents, a photocopy of your passport, and forms to declare any personal items that may be in the car.
If you are permanently moving to the US, we recommend consulting this page from U.S. Customs & Border Control for details about the process of importing your car permanently.
