    If it's Ontario, we have DMV offices as well. The small town offices are easier to deal with. Heck, my ownership for my 63 stated the year as 59 and the third digit was listed as a "5" instead of "S". I just needed a letter from ANY car dealer that it was in fact a 63 and there was an "S" in the VIN and they changed it.

    I have only brought tractors (Cockshutt's and Oliver's) from Canada to the U.S. I have mostly used a LTL carrier based here in Richmond that is owned by a friend of mine. They worked in conjunction with a customs broker to get it across.

    I also had an OC-6 crawler brought into New York by ferry from Canada in a driving blizzard. The driver was instructed to go inside to iron things out. He went inside, visited the restroom, waited a bit, came back out and waived to the guard and drove off. It worked for him but I do not recommend others try it.

    " Canada doesn't have DMV offices. The Insurance Companies handle all driver's licensing, car licensing, and insurance (great system!)"

    That must be true in BC, Dick,but it sure isn't in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick. We have DMV offices. I was just at one to renew my drivers license.

    I did it yesterday. Bought a car in British Columbia and brought it to Washington State. Piece of cake (as long as it's Stude vintage...may be tougher with a car that needs to meet US EPA and other regs).

    Assuming you are picking up the car in Canada and driving or trailering it home...

    Get the Vehicle Registration form from the seller. Make sure they have signed it on the appropriate line. Get a completed Bill of Sale (signed by both the buyer and the seller AND with a witness signature. The seller and I completed these forms at the Insurance Agency with their assistance when I picked the car up. Canada doesn't have DMV offices. The Insurance Companies handle all driver's licensing, car licensing, and insurance (great system!).

    No advance notice needed at the US boarder (nor would it do any good). You declare the purchase at the boarder crossing. US Customs has you park and go in the building where they complete an "Entry Summary" and verify the serial number of the Stude. It will take 15 minutes to 45 minutes depending upon how busy they are at the time you come across.

    You'll need the bill of sale and the registration when you go to register the car in your home state.

    email me if you want any more details, but it is JUST that simple

    When I sold my Hawk last fall to the people in Iowa it went very smoothly. They wire transferred the funds, I faxed them copies of the registration (title) and bill of sale so they could get the ball rolling ASAP, then mailed them the real documents by express post.
    They hired a shipper (Sea Rail) and it took about two weeks for them to come and pick up the car. It was about another two weeks before it landed in their yard.
    A shipper who is licesend to do cross border shipments can tell you all you need to know.

    Actually you can really save yourself alot of hassle if the seller and buyer are both at the US customs together.
