  • Provides insurance during transportation
  • Allows up to a maximum of 250 pounds of belongings in the car
  • Friendly and punctual drivers


  • Limited car shipping options
  • Has a cancellation fee 

Roca Car Hauling provides terminal-to-terminal and door-to-door car shipping services across Canada. 

Although they don’t offer many car shipping options, we do think it’s good that they can ship different types of vehicles. Some vehicle types include sedans, hatchbacks, SUVs,  pick-up trucks, and vans.

We also like their door-to-door services because they eliminate the hassle of driving to a meeting point to drop off or pick up your vehicle.

And fortunately, we noticed that their drivers are friendly and always on time. It’s also a plus that they keep you updated on sudden situations like traffic jams or bad weather.

However, to give you a heads-up, they charge a $110 cancellation fee if you make a request more than seven days before the departure date. 

Also, the entire amount becomes non-refundable if they receive the cancellation request seven days before the pick-up.

As for their safety and handling, we are happy to learn that their services are insured. In addition, Roca Car Hauling’s insurance will cover all damages caused during transportation.

So rest assured you won’t have to spend a penny on repairs.

Lastly, we like that they allow you to put up to 250 pounds of your personal belongings in the vehicle. Leaving your stuff in the car lessens the burden of needing to transport them during your move or trip.

  • Can transport many vehicle types
  • Offers special enclosed car shipping services
  • Allows personal belongings in the car
  • Accepts 24-48 hour pick-up requests
  • No deposit required


  • Some reports of delay

Since its establishment in 2008, Automoves Calgary Car Shipping continues to provide vehicle shipping services.

We like that they accept many vehicle types, from coupes and sedans to SUVs and trucks. 

It’s also good to note that they are one of the few non-running vehicle transport in Canada.

Furthermore, we appreciate that they also offer a special enclosed car shipping service which is especially useful for those with classic or luxury cars.

We also appreciate that they allow personal belongings in the car for up to 400 pounds at no extra cost.

Conveniently, you can request a free quote by filling out their online form, and they’ll get back to you within one to two hours. 

What we like most about Automoves Calgary Car Shipping is that they accept 24-48 hour pick-up requests. We think this is crucial for clients who want to avoid storage fees or don’t want to leave their cars sitting at a random lot for a long time.

But, we are disappointed after hearing some reports of delays during arrival without prior notice sent to the clients.

On a positive note, we appreciate that they don’t require a deposit or prepayment to secure a booking. 

Overall, we think Automoves Calgary Car Shipping is a reliable transport service for all types of vehicles you have.

  • Provides services in Canada and USA
  • Covers damages due to driver negligence
  • Offer new and luxury car shipping


  • Doesn’t accept non-running vehicles
  • Late pick-up and arrival complaints

Auto Carrier Corp offers professional auto transport services in Canada and USA. We think their service reach is impressive because, unlike most of their competitors, they don’t provide services in the US.

They also allow clients to put up to 200 pounds of personal stuff in the car for transport as long as it doesn’t cover the windows.

In addition, we like that they offer and have drivers experienced in working carefully with new luxury vehicles every day.

On the downside, we learned that they don’t accept and ship non-running vehicles and only accept cars that are fully operating, road-worthy, and in a safe condition.

We also noted some complaints about late pick-up and arrival times. And even by giving them some slack, some instances involved week-long delays.

That said, we suggest clients keep close communication with the company to avoid losing track of their vehicle and keep them responsible for its safety.

Fortunately, they are insured, which means they cover the damages to your car due to the driver’s negligence. So we highly suggest you check the condition of your vehicle with the driver before and after the service to avoid complications.

Finally, with over 3000 vehicles shipped all across Canada and USA, we think they are a solid choice for car shipping.

  • Provides car shipping via train
  • Has a 98% satisfaction rate
  • Has 24/7 customer support


  • Can improve on communication
  • Delayed arrival complaints 

With over 16 years of experience, Rocket Auto Haulers have been providing transport services for sedans, SUVs, pick-up trucks, and classic or luxury cars. 

What we like most about them is that they offer car shipping via rails, one of the cheapest ways to transport your vehicle. But don’t forget that cars transported by train take more time to arrive.

They also provide enclosed vehicle shipping, which we think is best for those with vintage, collector, and exotic cars.

Another thing we appreciate is their 24/7 online customer support to assist clients with their concerns. It’s a convenient way to solve queries and get help choosing the correct shipping option.

But, contrary to this, we noted some negative experiences involving the lack of communication and slow responses, especially with follow-ups on the arrival time.

On that note, we heard complaints about late and delayed arrivals — more than a week and month-long delays. 

That said, we advise clients to request a written and signed document to hold the company accountable for any unreasonable delays in case of complications.

Regardless, we have to give it to Rocket Auto Haulers because they are as reliable as having shipped over 350,000 vehicles. Plus, we’re impressed because having a 98% satisfaction rate is not an easy feat to maintain over 16 years of service!

  • Has competitive rates
  • Offers free shipping quotation
  • Fully insured services


  • Can improve on customer service
  • Delayed pick-ups and arrivals

Princess Auto Transport has been offering car shipping services to private clients, dealerships, and manufacturers across Canada for over 15 years.

We like that they have faster average transit times for common routes than other companies. 

For instance, the average transit time for Alberta to Vancouver or BC is only one to two, and three to five days for Alberta to Ontario. On the other hand, some companies take at least five to a week for the shortest shipping distance.

However, we noticed some cases of delayed pick-ups and arrivals and clients having difficulty getting a hold of someone to ask for an update. 

In addition, we observed that Princess Auto Transport doesn’t provide the best options for instances like the one we mentioned. We hope they improve their customer service to address any concerns as soon as possible.

On a better note, we learned that they have competitive rates compared with their counterparts.

Another thing we like is that they insure their services at no extra cost to clients. And we encourage clients to discuss and ask about the terms and conditions of their insurance guarantee to avoid paying damages from their own pockets.

Lastly, you can quickly request a free quotation through their online form to begin your car shipment process.
