Snowbirds Car Shipping To Toronto By A1 Auto Transport

If you’re a “snowbird” in Toronto, and you spend part of the year in the United States in warm, southern states like Florida or Georgia to escape the bitter Canadian winter, shipping your car is the best way to get it to your winter home quickly. 

With snowbird car shipping in Toronto, you can ship your car and fly to your winter home, and avoid driving in dangerous road conditions! Learn more about how snowbirds car shipping in Toronto works below, and see if it’s a good option for you.

How Does Snowbirds Car Shipping Work In Toronto? 

With snowbird car shipping, you’ll send your car to your winter home in the U.S. on a large car carrier truck, which will hold up to 10 other vehicles. It will be processed through customs and sent directly to your chosen destination, where you’ll pick it up and be able to drive right away.

This lets you get your car to the United States without a long road trip, which makes your winter retreat more convenient – and also allows you to avoid driving through Canada and the Northern United States during cold weather that could cause potentially dangerous road conditions.

How Long Does Snowbirds Car Shipping In Toronto Usually Take? 

This depends on your destination. Snowbirds car shipping to Miami, Florida, for example, will take longer than shipping a car to a more northern state like North or South Carolina. A trip from Toronto to Tampa, FL, for example, will usually take 6-8 days. The further your destination, the longer it will take to ship your car.

Planning ahead and having a more flexible delivery schedule will help you save money when you’re using snowbird car shipping services in Toronto, so make sure you work out the logistics of shipping your vehicle well in advance of your seasonal move.

What Is The Customs Process Like For Snowbird Car Shipping In Toronto?

Your shipping provider will contact you with a full list of the information and paperwork that you’ll need to ship your car into the United States from Toronto. You’ll need some basic details like a letter of authorization, a copy of your passport, your U.S. address, and some customs forms.

For example, if you’re shipping your car with personal items you will need a filled-out copy of CBP (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) Form 3299 – Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles

You also will need to fill out CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) Form E-15 – Certificate of Destruction/Exportation so that you won’t pay duty/taxes on these items when you return after the winter is over. Your shipping company will help you learn more about any additional paperwork that may be required during the process.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

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!

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
