2. Book Your Shipment

We think you'll be happy with the affordable and competitive price we offer! Once you're happy with the estimate you've received, schedule your shipment with us by filling out the provided booking package.

Door-to-Door Service: We may be able to arrange for a tow truck or driving service to pick up your vehicle at your door, and deliver it to your new residence on your behalf. This convenience comes at a cost and isn't available in all cities. If you're interested, reach out and we'll help you make the right choice.

Note: We recommend making arrangements in advance of your move date to reserve a slot and ensure your vehicle reaches its destination on-time. If you need help evaluating your options, we don't bite!

3. Drop Off Your Vehicle

You've booked your shipment, so now it's time to get your car moving! A specialist will let you know when and where to drop off your car, usually at one of our terminals.

Terminals are facilities most commonly found near metropolitan areas. We have terminals located in cities all across Canada in each province that make it convenient and cost-effective to ship your car—no matter where in the Great White North you're going!

Need to move your car to or from a smaller town or community? No problem! If possible, we will arrange for your vehicle to be moved to or from a nearby auto dealership, secure compound, or service garage. Let us handle the negotiations and other complexities—we specialize in this sort of thing, so you can relax and focus on moving!

Door-to-Door Service: A truck or driving service picks up your vehicle at home and delivers it to the terminal on your behalf. Your car is then loaded on to a truck, train, or ship and transported to the destination.

Note: Before sending off your vehicle, make sure of the following:

  • Your vehicle must be properly insured.
  • Place photocopies of your insurance & registration papers in the glove box.
  • Do not leave your keys in the vehicle—keep an extra set of keys on-hand.
  • Finally, ensure your car's gas tank is at least half-full.
Can I leave personal belongings in my vehicle?

On certain routes, personal items may be permitted in the trunk area of your vehicle (up to 250lbs) at your own risk. When you request a quote, we will tell you whether personal items are allowed, or you can contact us.

4. Pick Up Your Vehicle

Your car has reached the destination terminal—get ready to say hello to your vehicle once again! An advisor will promptly let you know the terminal address and hours of operation so you can pick up your car.

Door-to-Door Service: A truck or driving service picks up your automobile at the destination terminal and delivers it to your new residence. You must make yourself available to receive your car.

Note: Have your photo ID and VIN number ready when arriving at the terminal. If you want to authorize somebody else to pick up your vehicle, let us know in advance, and make sure to give them your VIN number. The name on their photo ID must also match in order for your car to be released.
