Importing Cars from the States
I am looking to import a car from the States for two reasons:
1. Larger selection to choose from
2. Prices are more attractive.
I did call ICBC and they gave me the process of what it takes to import a car. Federal, Provincal test, Canadianizing a car, etc.
Does anyone here have any practical experience bring a car over? And if you did, is there anything to be aware of. What would you do differently if you had to do it again?
1.my understanding is that some documents have to be faxed over to US customs at least 48 hours prior to bringing the car over.
