What is a VIN NUMBER?

We'll need your vehicle's VIN number in order to process your order to ship your car, but we often get asked, what is a VIN number?

What is a VIN?

A VIN, which stands for Vehicle Identification Number, is a series of letters and numbers that can be found on your insurance documents, vehicle registration documents, and even on your vehicle. It is a 17-digit identification number that is standard on newer vehicles, however older models may have a shorter VIN.

Where can I find the VIN?

The VIN is usually located on the dashboard, in front of the steering wheel, at the lower-left quadrant. By gazing through the windshield on the driver's side of the vehicle, you can read the number. The VIN can also be found in the following places: The engine block's front.

Why do I need to provide the VIN when booking my car for shipping?

The VIN is necessary to identify the vehicle details provided are correct, to make sure got the make and model accordingly per vehicle. Also, as a unique number identification it help us with the tracking of each vehicle. For example, we could have a load of all Audi Q3s, same color. With the VIN number attached to each order, we know what unit belongs to each customer. 

This helps keep the manifest per load clear.

Moving Tips - Changing homes isn't always easy

We recently moved offices and got us thinking about all our customers that have to relocate to a new home. While packing, we decided to put together some of the things we did to make our move as smooth as possible. We thought this would be helpful for people moving to a new city, or a new home. Before you start packing Clean before your start putting things in boxes. You don't want dust coming from the old place to the new one. This will also help you get rid of things you really don't need or want anymore. Once you have sorted the things you actually want to take, you can decide whether you can donate the things you don't need anymore. Separate your items in categories like: glassware, cleaning supplies, bedding, etc. This way when you pack, you can sort things in a more organized way. Label your boxes. By category, or by room, you  can even mark which side must go up. Before you disconnect your electronics, take a picture, this way you will know where all t

Canada’s 5 best-selling vehicles for the first 6 months of 2018

Best selling vehicles in Canada This June, there was a 2 per cent drop in total sales  and the first-half of 2018 ends as the second-strongest start to the year in Canadian history. Canadians have bought and leased more than 2 million vehicles in 2018 for just the second time ever, but that’s with fewer total sales than last year. More Canadians are acquiring new vehicles by getting into longer-term loans, having been attracted to car dealer showrooms with strong incentives but still the Canadian auto industry may not be as healthy as it appears on paper.   Vehicle sales in the first 6 months of 2018 According to Global Automakers of Canada, 1.04 million new vehicles were sold between January and June. Surprisingly the most popular vehicles on which the industry depends for great swathes of volume, are suffering substantial demand decreases. Honda and Toyota, for instance, sold nearly 5,000 fewer Corollas and Civics in the first-half of 2018 compared with the sa

One of ShipMyRide’s expertise is private relocation.

One of ShipMyRide’s expertise is private relocation. What does this mean?   When a customer is moving to another city or province, we help them move their vehicle to their new address. But, why do Canadians move? There are major reasons that make Canadians move, which include: ·          A new addition to the family ·          Job relocation ·          A decrease in family members ·          Retirement ·          An increase in cash flow, etc. To break it down by the numbers, most Canadians move because of: • Family size increase (marriage, kids etc.) – 42% • Job relocation – 37%,  but much higher in Alberta – 53% • Family size decrease (divorce, death, empty nest etc.) – 20% • Retirement – 18% • Came into more money – 14% • Home was in need of renovations – 14% Moving is not a random decision, when you consider over a lifetime. Canadians move five to six times, according to the Canadian Association of Movers. A Statistics Canada survey
