Info about Vehicle Shipping in Canada

Another common reason for car shipping is vacations, everyone loves vacations but if you're  going to a different city for a short period of time you will need a car to see around, why would you rent a car if you can have your own car shipped to the house or hotel you're staying in.
A different situation would be: buying a vehicle from long distance. What if you find the carof your dreams at a very good price, the thing is that it is located kilometers away? Why would you miss the chance of having the car you've ever wanted just because it's far? All you have to do is contact Ship My Ride to ship the vehicle all the way to you.

More up for electric trucks... Volvo Trucks are in!

Volvo Trucks are stepping in to the electric truck game. They have announced that starting next year, companies and individuals will be able to get a Volvo electric truck. Volvo Trucks will begin to sell these in Europe next year.
