Importing or exporting a vehicle becomes simple and seamless with the use of our vehicle clearance services and shipping services.

If you are importing from the USA, we offer a complete customs clearance package and freight forwarding service to meet your specific needs. Once youve purchased your vehicle, we can handle the entire process from picking up the vehicle at your sellers location, transporting to the border, customs clearance, and final delivery to your door.

If you decide to pick up the vehicle and drive it yourself, we can assist you with the customs clearance at the border.

If you are importing a vehicle from overseas, let us work with the port of arrival, shipping lines, Canada customs, container destuffing warehouses and inland carriers to get the vehicle to your door.
