Hi Guys,

Finally, I am making the move to Canada, I entered Canada first time on 1st Apr 2018, so getting pretty close to 2 year period.
So, I have 2 cars and 1 U HAUL truck that I will put all my stuff in(Only 2 drivers - My wife n Me).
I live far away from the border , I am thinking about driving to Detroit 3 days before the actual move and keeping my car there, and then my wife will take the other car
and I will take the UHAUL to Detroit and upon reaching there I will hitch one of the cars to my truck.

Is there an easy way to do this, I can't ask any friend for help due to COVID and also 14-day quarantine.
I tried to look if I can get my car transported and they are asking for $2000 where the car will go to the warehouse and I will have to get it.
Looks pretty hectic and costly.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

If you are able to re-enter US, then you can come back and export the second car on a later date.

Nupp, Not US Citizen.

Have taken a Uhaul with a Car dolly. Let's see how it goes, I will update once I am relocated, hopefully safely.
