I did a bad thing. I fell in love with a car on Ebay and am bidding on
it. The car is in Massetuesett.....Masss....Masset......well South of Maine
and I wish to bring this car to Canada. Is there anyone here from Canada
that has had experience in importing a car from the USA?
The car is very driveable....but rather than driving it... I will be
driving my truck and pulling a car hauler. Going to load the car and haul it
home...What kind of flak am I going to get at the border?...Thanks....Jim
Check with Can Customs before you go down there. They have a whole
department that looks after the import of vehicles. There are certain
models that are not allowed into the country under any circustances. They
will check the list and confirm that you can bring it up. They will also
give you all the info you need to know when bringing it back. You will be
req'd to pay GST and PST (unless you're in Oilberta) at the border.
Hey Jim, if the car is over 15 yrs old it makes it a lot easier. Check out
the www.riv.ca website.. they will instruct you on what is required. I just
went down 2 weeks ago and found the whole ordeal fairly simple. Just make
sure to give the US Customs folks 3 business days notice.
