Border Crossing Information
US and Canada Border CrossingsMany UCanImport subscribers are now in the process of completing their first car importation from the United States. Congratulations!

In order to expedite your importation through US Customs and Border Protection, you must submit your import documentation to the export office at the border you wish to cross at least 72 hours in advance (three working days) of bringing your imported vehicle into Canada. You should also note that not all borders accept vehicle exports and that some require that you submit original documentation in person or by courier. We encourage you to verify the requirements at your selected crossing in advance.

To assist you, below is listing of many of the border crossings, as well as their unique export instructions. You can also check out the border crossing information listed on the CBP web site.
