Getting Your Vehicle to the US

Shipping your vehicle across the border requires that you have all of the required documentation so that the process runs smoothly. You provide us with the following, and Hansen’s will handle the rest:

Transportation – US Customs

Proper documentation for US Customs allows us to ship your vehicle in an expedient manner. Be sure to make copies of these documents and keep them for your own personal records.

3299 Form – Declaration for free entry of unaccompanied articles

Be sure that both sides of this form are carefully completed, as it is the most important document for customs. Fill in boxes 1-7 in Part I and box 9 B in Part II. On the back of the form, be sure to include the year, make, model and VIN of the vehicle in the Description of Merchandise section. Finally, sign and date the document under Part VI.

Copy of passport

We require a clear copy of the photo page of your passport in order to ship your vehicle across the border. Scanned and email copy is preferred, as the image is much higher in quality than a fax.

Copy of vehicle ownership

As with the copy of your passport, a scanned and emailed copy of your vehicle ownership is preferred.

Removal of personal belongings

It is better to remove all personal belongings from your vehicle prior to shipping. This is because: they are not insured, they create issues for the driver, and they present challenges with both US and Canada Customs.
