If you’re living in Canada, but you’re looking to vacation in Arizona or any other tropical state in the United States during the colder months of your hometown, it might be a good idea to get your car shipped depending on how long you’re staying. If you’re splitting the year, having your own car to drive around in is the smart option.
You could just rent a car, but that bill will be rather expensive, so you might as well take the time to get everything in order to have your car shipped down.
What You Have to Do
It’s a very simple process as long as you do the right steps and make sure your car is in check for it to pass through U.S. Customs. At Car Couriers, we can help you get your car over the boarder legally, so you don’t have to worry about driving it over. If you’re heading to Arizona for example, all you have to do is pack your bags and fly. We provide the shipping of your car.
You’ll need to provide us with a filled out 3299 Form, a copy of your passport/driver’s license & birth certificate. You will also be required to provide a copy of the vehicle ownership to prove that it is in fact your vehicle. The last thing you’ll have to provide us is a letter confirming your permission for us to take your car across the border.
Tips Before You Hand Over the Car for Shipping
It’s smart to clear all your belongings out of your vehicle before handing it over. Also, get your car washed and cleaned because the United States has strict rules about the spread of pests, and if your car has them under the car, then they can spread in the United States.
Make sure your vehicle meets U.S. environmental standards. Considering the Clean Air Act, you’ll have to fill out an EPA Form 3520-1to prove that your vehicle meets the standards. Also, it will need to meet the United States’ safety standards.
The Benefits of Shipping
Many benefits come with having your car shipped through Car Couriers. We have the experience to make this simple and easy for you to accomplish. You won’t regret the decision because you will have the freedom to roam with your car on vacation wherever you are, and you won’t have to worry about any time spent on the road to your destination.
Think about if you had to drive over the border with your car. Thousands of miles will be driven and put on your vehicle. Instead of wasting days of travel, money on hotel rooms, and money on gas, you have the freedom to fly whenever you want and get your car shipped straight to your vacation destination.
Saves Time – instead of driving many miles and spending time on the road, have it shipped and fly to your vacation destination.
Saves Money – when shipping, you’ll be saving money on gas, mileage, and hotel rooms because you’ll be flying, and your car will be shipped on a car carrier for your convenience.
