Cheapest way is with a train. There are a few companies that do it. I asked a similar Q last summer, try using the search function and hopefully it will come up.

I've shipped many cars from Edmonton -> Toronto, Toronto -> Edmonton, Toronto -> Vancouver....

Use my guys.. 416 754 2235 J Simons,

Cheapest shipping in all of Toronto, unless you're a dealer, then I can get you even cheaper

Actually, if you have the time, wouldn't it be cheaper to drive the car there, drop it off and take a one way flight back to toronto? I guess it all depends on how much a flight from Edmonton to toronto would cost.

my buddy rented a truck that hals cars like a mini truck with a trailer....hauled it all the way to Texas...no kms on his car and its a hell of a lot cheaper just takes a lot of time.

i weighed out the options of driving, just not worth it. especially with a 10 year old car. Glad I didn't cause like a week after I picked up the car in Vancouver, the fuel pump went. I couldn't imagine having to replace my fuel pump in the middle of butt**** nowhere manitoba in -30'C weather.

hahahahahahaha


Ya, it doesn't work out to drive it back..... the gas you'll use, plus hotel for some R&R, and the flight back.... wouldn't be any cheaper than shipping it with a company. I was looking at shipping a car from Vancouver to Toronto and it was around $900 which isn't too bad at all!

be careful. my advise..is take out the things that u are worried about. i brought mine over from england, and the transport people stole the little bmw emblems that go in the centre of the wheels, and the system out of it. i was so pissed. but if ure going across canada. u shud have no problem. gud luck man

I used SeaRail to ship my car to Vancouver when I lived in Seattle. It cost me $1000 tax-in (would be cheaper to Edmonton) and it was completely insured.

They did an awesome job - car was in an enclosed container at all times. It is cheaper if you don't have an enclosed trailer - but that's just silly if you ask me.

Well I would notice that my system was gone immediately, so I would have caused hell, but the tire pressure gauge i didn't notice until like a week later.

No big deal.
