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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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 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!
