Virtually any goods can be imported into Canada, with the exception of certain types of products that are prohibited under various legislation or other trade rules. We would be pleased to inform you of any regulations that may apply to the products you wish to import
Please consult the Registrar of Imported Vehicles website (www.riv.ca) to determine whether Transport Canada will allow the type of vehicle you would like to import. Many vehicles from the US are allowed into Canada, but vehicles from other countries are not typically allowed. Once you have determined that your vehicle is admissible, US Customs must be advised of the vehicle’s export no less than 72 hours prior to exporting.Arrangements concerning the vehicle’s import into Canada, payment of applicable duties and taxes, and the filing of pertinent RIV forms can be handled by Mc’Larry Express on your behalf. To do so, we’ll need the bill of sale and the vehicle’s registration documents; we will also need toknow the time your vehicle is expected to cross, and through which port of entry. If you are not driving the car into Canada but instead using the services of a commercial carrier, you must also advise us of the carrier so that we may coordinate the shipment.
Canada’s Goods and Services Tax (GST) is 5% of the duty paid value of the imported goods.
Our account representative can assist you on number of days until your shipment will be delivered to its destination.
