Nov 23, 2021

Shipping a vehicle from Vancouver to Toronto is quite an easy process. Vancouver and Toronto are two of the largest cities in Canada so there are a lot of cars moving between these two hub cities. Most of the vehicles that are shipped from Vancouver to Toronto are new vehicles from Asia. They arrive at the port in Vancouver and then are put on a train or truck and then moved to Toronto. The rest of the vehicles that are being shipped between these two cities are used vehicles for dealerships and privately owned vehicles from people relocating for work or school.

The cost to ship a car from Vancouver to Toronto can depend on what mode is being used.

The first mode, which is the most popular, is also the least expensive. Rail transportation involves putting 10 or 15 vehicles inside an Autorak railcar from one of the CP or CN Rail terminals in Vancouver (Lower Mainland), and then moving the railcar full of vehicles to the rail terminal in Toronto (GTA).

The cost to ship one vehicle by rail from Vancouver to Toronto can range from $1200 to $1800 (Canadian dollars as of November 2021).
