Hi ! gauravs04,

I talked with the US port of exit personnel to export US registered vehicle so they sent me some forms to fill out. I have to mail or fax these forms along with my title, state register document, US insurance to border services agency 72 hours before your actual departure (exporting) from US. And before exporting your vehicle needs to in US.

I hope this helps.

Dear gauravs04

I have seen some of us want to transfer car etc. from one country to another while immigration. I think it is troublesome in most of the cases. However, it is personal to everybody who wants to do that.

May I ask gauravs04, why do not you sell your car in US and buy another in Canada ? If it is very personal to you need not to answer.

Thanks.

hello sir, i am a landed immigrant to canada from pakistan. my father lives in US. he brought for me used car model 2004 registered in his own name in US. he left the car with me and went back to US. He has taken non-resident insurance from US in his name and also added my name in the insurance. Now here in Canada I have taken the driver's license.
My questions are?
1-   Can i keep this car with me in my father name and US number plate?
2-   If cops stop me somehow, then i have Canadian license, ownership certificate in my father's name, authority letter to drive his car, insurance card showing joint names.
3-   Or i need to transfer this car in my name in Canada. If so, i have declared this car at the Canadian border agency while entering / landing at the airport. Then what do i do next?
Your help is required.

1.  No, it has to be imported into Canada and exported from the US.  See: www.riv.ca and it has to be in your name and you have to get a recall letter from the manufacturer.
2.  As a Canadian resident driving a US vehicle, you take the chance that it will be seized.

Hi! Just saw this topic and decided to insert my feedback:

Who ever need a car transporter (car carrier) from USA to Canada i would highly recommend Ways Auto - that is Toronto base car carrier, they are specialize in transporting cars from US to Canada. I got referrals for this company from a friend and those guys answered to all expectations.
