Auto Transport, Car Carrier Vs Freight Broker In Canada



The first thing that we need to do before moving a vehicle in Canada is to evaluate the car carrier company that will move our vehicle. It is really important that they have the proper shipping and loading equipment and the transportation paperwork required to transport vehicles (Insurance, licenses, etc.) This is something that we need to ask for before delivering our vehicle to any car shipping company.


 A certified car carrier is the one who has the vehicle on their control, therefore, they have the most reliable information when it comes to provide an update of the vehicle. It is the main source of information.

When we talk about having specific routes we are telling you that we know where we are going, it is really important that the company in Canada that transports your vehicle knows the area since it will give you a better idea of the time it's going to take him to deliver the vehicle.

As you can see there are a lot of differences between a car shipping company and a car broker. We want to clarify that using a car broker service is not bad, they will deliver the unit as they stated but we are talking about the control of the shipping process in general.

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.
 “Electromobility is fully in line with Volvo Trucks’ long-term commitment to sustainable urban development and zero emissions,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “By using electrically powered and quieter trucks for goods transport in urban areas, we meet several challenges simultaneously. Without disturbing noise and exhaust gases, it will be possible to operate in more sensitive city centers. Transport may also take place throughout less busy periods, for example in late evening and at night. This will reduce the burden on the roads during daytime rush-hour traffic, allowing both the road network and vehicles to be utilized far more effectively than today.

Urban distribution and other pick-up and delivery applications are a sta…

Truck Driver Tips - Driving in Winter Conditions

We are starting to see snowfalls across the country, some mild and some a little more than expected. Diving through the highways in this conditions can be nerve wrecking. But there are things you can do as the driver to make sure you make it to your destination safe.


Know your driving limits. Before you take on the challenge on icy and snow covered roads, be true to yourself on your skills for driving in these poor conditions. Remember is not only you out there, there will be hundreds of cars and other semi trucks. If you don't feel prepared make sure you get enough practice with a more experienced driver or with a professional trainer.

Stop in a safe dedicated place on the road or a truck stop and get some rest, or wait for the weather conditions to improve. If you can go on, slow down. Speed limits are often too fast for snow icy or snow co…

You may have lots of driving experience, but not much on highway driving experience. Most of us drive within the city, but fly or catch the bus when we have to go to a different province or city. Nothing wrong with that! What happens when you have to relocate and you need to take your vehicle with you? There are a couple options. You will need to ship your vehicle or drive it to your new destination.
In Canada, there are a few highways that many people try to avoid. One of them is the Coquihalla in British Columbia.
High mountain passes are roads built on high mountains. But that is not all there is, these mountains are more than just mounds of rock. They are living, breathing environments, and for this they are subject to a diverse range of weather situations and events that can change without notice. 
A sunny day can turn into a snow storm in just moments. As we know, the higher the elevation the cooler the weather and wind…
