    Default Shipping vehicle from Arizona to Vancouver

    I need to ship a vehicle from Arizona to Vancouver. Can anyone recommend how to do that, what it costs, how long it takes, and whether any special.paperwork is required? I will be importing it eventually, but am hoping to not do that until the Arizona registration expires.

    Thanks!

    I found the minute you ask about crossing the border, it adds $3k to the price. I was getting $4-6k quotes to bring my old Z06 from Phoenix to Calgary. I got it brought from Phoenix to Great Falls though for $800 and just took a day trip down with a uhaul trailer to grab it. No reason you couldn't do the same to somewhere near the border around Vancouver.

    Either ship to somewhere in WA, or just fly down and drive it back. It's not like it's in FL.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the advice. Any recommendations on good companies that do this? It's a 26 hour drive, don't want to do that personally as my time is more valuable to me.

    "Hire" a friend to bring it up??...I brought up a car for a friend a few years back...and for me made a nice holiday out of it and was able to drive up the coast in a nice sports sedan haha...

    But aside from time, maybe putting kilometers on your car is something you are looking to avoid??...

    I can be that "friend" for an all inclusive trip. Just wondering how crossing the border in someone else's car works though...

    You just need a letter authorizing you as an agent to import their car
