Saskatchewan to Prince Edward Island Shipping Information

When shipping from Saskatchewan to PEI, your vehicle would be transported by several open car carrier trucks. We have a terminal in Saskatoon as well as secondary terminals in Saskatoon and Regina that your vehicle could be dropped off at if needed (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. If your vehicle is coming from another location in Saskatchewan such as Swift Current, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Yorkton, the truck driver will also call you and arrange for you to meet him at a commercial location for loading. This method is usually somewhere near the TransCanada Highway. If you are unable to meet the truck, you will have to supply a car dealership that will accept the vehicle for the next driver to pick up.

The vehicle would be loaded on the truck and will be delivered to a terminal in Ontario, (Milton or Brampton). Once it offloads in Ontario, it will be assigned to an open car carrier to be transported to the terminal in Dartmouth and will be assigned to another open car carrier for delivery to PEI. In some cases it may be shipped directly to PEI from Ontario.

In PEI, the truck driver will call you and arrange for you to meet him at a commercial location like a dealership or truck stop near the TransCanada Highway. The vehicle would be unloaded from the truck and given to you directly.

 

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

Regina, SK → Milton, ON or Brampton, ON → Dartmouth, NS → Summerside, PE

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.

 

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 Prince Edward Island. 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.

What is “Wait Time” and “Transit Time”?

  • 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.

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.
