How to Ship your Car or Vehicle across Canada

By Quality Move Management Inc / June 26, 2018

Whether you’re moving to Canada, moving from Canada, or just moving across Canada, there’s one thing you definitely can’t leave behind: your car! When moving short distances, just driving the car to your new destination seems like a simple solution, but when you’re moving a lot further, it isn't so easy! Let's compare driving your car to your new house with using a Canada movers or car carrier for professional vehicle shipping across country...

 

“Why not just drive to your new home?”

Though driving you car to your new home may save on the initial shipping costs you would incur when using a moving company, it could end up costing you more (financially & emotionally!) in the long run.

 

Not only do you have to take into account the fuel costs involved in making a lengthy journey across canada or the Canada/US border, you also have to consider maintenance costs (e.g. tire repairs) and the depreciation cost (how much such a long journey will decrease the value of your car). On top of this, you will be spending a few long days and nights on the road, meaning the cost of meals and accommodation must also be factored in! Not to mention, driving to your new destination instead of flying means you’ll be delaying the start of your new career - so don’t forget to consider loss of income!

 

As well as financial factors to consider, it’s also important to remember that such long drives can be mentally tiring, and even quite dangerous (depending on where you’ll be going). We’re not trying to scare you of course, but it’s important to realise that getting your vehicle from A to B is not as easy as just hopping in the car for a little road trip!

 

“What’s the alternative?” Vehicle shipping!

Enlisting the services of Canadian moving company to ship your car via automobile transporter is not only the easiest way to have your car delivered to your home, it’s also the safest & most economical! Using vehicle transport or car delivery means you’re free to travel to your new home in your own way. You’ll also have great peace of mind knowing that your car will be travelling safely and securely. Of course, it’s very important to select a vehicle shipping company that will make this process simple and easy.
