Saskatchewan to BC Shipping Information

We have secondary terminals in Saskatoon and Regina that your vehicle could be dropped off at (storage fees may apply), but in most cases the truck driver will call you and arrange for you to meet him at a commercial location like a dealership or truck stop. The vehicle would be loaded directly on the truck at that time.

If your vehicle is coming from another location in Saskatchewan such as Swift Current, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, or Yorkton, the truck driver will call you and arrange for you to meet him at a commercial location like a dealership or a truck stop. This pick up method is usually somewhere near the TransCanada Highway. If you can’t meet the truck, you will have to supply a car dealership that will accept the vehicle for the next available driver to pick up.

Your vehicle will be transported on an open car carrier from the terminal in Saskatoon or Regina to one of the terminals in Calgary or Edmonton and then will be assigned to a truck going to British Columbia. The main trucking terminal in British Columbia is located in Richmond, BC.

If your vehicle is going to another location in British Columbia, it will be taken to the Richmond terminal and will wait for another truck to take it to its final destination. This will add a few days to the Wait/Transit Times.

For example, if you’re shipping from Regina to Comox your vehicle will be shipped like this:

Regina, SK → Calgary, AB → Richmond, BC → Comox, BC

The wait times and transit times are approximates, and not guaranteed for the standard method of shipping. Pickup and deliveries in remote locations can take longer.

  • The wait time is how long your vehicle will wait before it is picked up or how long it will wait to depart on the truck/train once it is dropped off at a terminal.
  • The transit time is how long your vehicle will take to arrive to the next terminal once it has departed.

How long does it take to ship my car?

The information above shows the approximate wait times and transit times for shipping a car from Saskatchewan to British Columbia. Departures are usually not on fixed days as they can depend on volume of vehicles already booked and ones already at the terminals assigned to a load. It is recommended to book at least 1-2 weeks in advance. Booking in advance can help decrease transit times but normally your vehicle will be placed in queue to ship once it is at the terminal.  If you are shipping by enclosed transport trailer these transit times may not apply.

Will my car be shipped by multiple trucks?

For shorter moves it may be shipped on only one truck, but for longer shipments it will be on multiple trucks/trains before it’s delivered. Canada is the second largest country in the world and to ship a car directly in one shipment across the entire country would be very expensive. It is the most economical/inexpensive way to ship your vehicle when it’s transferred between multiple trucks/trains between major cities.
