Why Do People Ship Cars to/from Washington and Canada?

The primary reason is work relocation but there are many other reasons as well. For one,

the Blaine/Pacific Highway border crossing is the busiest on the West Coast, making it a popular destination for anyone on vacation or coming here for college.

Seattle is the largest city in the state and we serve this city with both open and enclosed car carriers on a regular basis. However, our service is not limited to the Seattle area only; we also serve Tacoma, Everett, Bellingham, Blaine, Vancouver, Spokane, and the Tri-City region.

Seattle has many multinational corporations that hire employees from around the world. Many Canadians live here and work for these companies, and we ship their vehicles from Canada to their new homes in Seattle. Typically, these employees are working on TN, H1B, and L1A visas. We arrange for the customs clearance of their vehicles to allow for either temporary or permanent registration. We provide assistance to these clients to ensure compliance with US DOT and EPA requirements.

Washington is also home to many impressive state and private colleges — University of Washington, Whitman College, Gonzaga University, and Washington State to name a few. There are Canadian students enrolled at these colleges and they need their vehicles. We provide shipping services for their vehicles door to door from their Canadian residences to their college dorms.

The State of Washington has many professional sports teams such as the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders. Professional Canadian sports players are drafted by these teams and travel to the state to play under O or P visas. We provide door-to-door transportation services and temporary and permanent customs clearance solutions for these athletes’ vehicles. Basically, they hand over the vehicle and we do the rest.

Many foreign nationals reside in the Seattle area on investment visas (E1 visas). They often need to import vehicles from Canada. We can arrange for the shipping and permanent importation of these vehicles.

Tacoma is a major port on the West Coast and many large international shipping lines services this port from Europe and the Far East. We ship vehicles between the port in Tacoma, WA to Vancouver Canada under T&E bonds. Many Canadians based in British Columbia utilize the port of Tacoma and the cost savings it provides to transship their international vehicles to Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Blaine/Pacific Highway border crossing point between Washington and British Columbia is the busiest border crossing point on the West Coast. We have trucks crossing this border almost on a daily basis. We are extremely familiar with the formalities required to cross this border. We take care of all the export and import requirements for vehicles entering or leaving the USA through this popular border crossing.
