Canada Vehicle Shipping options
Roll on Roll off / RORO Vehicle Shipping
Our company offers Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) shipping services to Halifax, which is located on the East Coast of Canada. RORO shipping is a cost-effective and efficient option for transporting your vehicle overseas, as it involves loading and unloading the vehicle onto and off the shipping vessel using a ramp.
For those shipping to the West Coast of Canada, the nearest RORO port is Tacoma, which is located in the USA. If you choose to ship to Tacoma, you will need to either transport the vehicle yourself from the port to Canada, or take advantage of a bonded transporter. A bonded transporter is a secure method of transport that involves the use of a specialized truck and driver who are authorized to transport your vehicle across the border.
Our team of experts can help you choose the best shipping option for your specific needs, whether it be RORO shipping to Halifax or Tacoma, or another method of transport altogether. We can provide you with all the necessary information about shipping regulations, customs requirements, and insurance options, ensuring a hassle-free and smooth shipping experience.

Temporary Vehicle Import Requirements – Canada
Temporary entry for tourists with their vehicle is generally straightforward in Canada. Tourists can bring their car into Canada for up to 12 months without the need for permanent import.
While a Carnet De Passage is not required for entry, we recommend that you apply for EPA approval/exemption before shipping your vehicle if you plan to travel in the USA after Canada. Although EPA is only required for the USA, it is important to note that the NAFTA area (Canada, Mexico & USA) is considered a trade zone, and the EPA does not consider your vehicle exported from USA territory until it has left the trade zone. Therefore, we recommend that you leave the NAFTA area within 12 months to avoid any issues with EPA regulations.

Permanent Vehicle Import Requirements – Canada
When importing foreign vehicles (non-USA or Canada) into Canada, it is important to note that the vehicle should be at least 15 years old. If your vehicle was not manufactured in the U.S or Canada and was not originally manufactured to conform to the applicable U.S standards, we strongly advise that you research to find out if any modifications may be required to bring your vehicle in line with the required standards.
Vehicles that were manufactured to comply with applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) will have a certification label permanently attached by the original manufacturer. This label is usually located in the engine bay or door trim.
Transport Canada provides a list of US vehicles that have been assessed to be admissible into Canada under the RIV (Registrar of Imported Vehicles) program, based on information provided by vehicle manufacturers. You can find this list on their website.
Our team of experts can guide you through the import process, helping you understand the necessary regulations and requirements for importing your vehicle into Canada.
