RE: Look what is hiding out in BC !


best way would be to borrow an insured dealer plate

I was told insurance on a dealer plate is not valid if the vehicle is not registered with the dealer.

I would assume about $3500 to ship the car from BC to here. My son just had a Honda shipped from Ontario to PEI and it cost $1100 all in.

For those offering to drive across the country, have you ever done it before? I've driven Ottawa to Calgary once and that was enough. While the crossing the prairies is bad enough, Northern Ontario is the worst. Rocks, trees, rocks, trees, rocks, trees...... It makes my long trips from Calgary to places like Michigan, Indiana & Texas seem exciting.

On the Celebrity Infinity I think Mark. Leaves port on June 3rd.

I've done the run by motorcycle. Twice. Ontario to Tofino, Vancouver island. Yes, it can be a slog. But I'd view it now as more of a Zen kind of thing. Time to really think about my upcoming retirement.

Au contraire mon ami. The Ontario drive is likely the most beautiful drive there is in Canada! As a matter of fact, my good buddy JohnneeD (LOL.......) is wanting to do that drive again he enjoyed it so much last fall in his Galaxie.

Johnnee was able to buy a permit in Manitoba to legally drive his Ford home last fall. I'm not sure how other provinces work but we were in and out of the insurance office relatively easily at that time.

The dealer insurance on a dealer plate covers cars owned by the dealership.

You have to get a temporary plate in each province as you travel through.

To drive it to PEI, you'd be best to get it plated in PEI first. Probably needs a motor vehicle inspection for PEI to do that Todd? If you go the antique plates route, you'd need a PEI mechanical inspection? You may get either inspection if you know a "friendly" licensed mechanic? You'd want to have everything working that's inspected anyway, brakes, lights, etc.

Insurance- not sure how antique car insurance would work.

I bumped into a guy on line who travels from Cape Breton to Alberta about every month, shows a Calgary pickup. Might be worth asking what he'd charge for a car with say a Moncton or Amherst drop? Contact was Paula McNeil 902-321-1451. An ad on Kijiji. www.kijiji.ca/v-moving-storage/cape-breton/shipping-vehicles-to-and-from-alberta-to-nb-ns-nfld/1112184569 19,466 visits on that link.

When I bought my Caprice wagon in Niagara Falls, I just gave the vin to my insurance company, and bought a 7 day permit, and then drove through the states back home, with a few stops along the way. Relatively painless!

3 years ago I bought an Escalade in AB, put an AB temporary plate ( sticker on the back window ) on it and headed home. Got stopped just before Winnipeg because they didn't see the plate. While walking up to the vehicle the officer saw the temporary plate in the rear window. We had a short friendly conversation and he wished me well

Well it's a real solid car, not perfect but nicest under carriage I've seen for a long time. Have sent a report to Todd.

 My experience was with buying a vehicle in PEI and driving it to NS. NS wouldn't sell me a temporary permit without the original ownership for the vehicle in my name and PEI wouldn't sell me a temporary permit either unless I registered the vehicle in my name in PEI. Temporary permits here also specify a travel from location and a travel to location and expire after 30 days.

I asked motor vehicle in both provinces and was told I needed a permit from both in order to drive it in each province. I ended up taking a plate off my car and putting it on the car I bought and driving it to NS, then taking my paperwork into the NS registry and getting new plates. The vehicle was PEI safety inspected and NS accepted that paperwork. My insurance company had no problem covering me, this was not a car with antique plates.

FYI for other Provinces, PEI has a safety inspection requirement (as does NS PEI and NB) and you need that to get plates for a non antique plate vehicle, in NS this sagety inspection is done every 2 years. I don't know what you need for PEI safety inspection if we are talking antique plates, in NS we have a one time safety inspection that is good for the lifetime of the car.

In PEI you are required to join the Prince Edward Island Antique car club in order to get antique plates. I have no idea why this is the case. Once you have the plates you are exempt from getting yearly inspections.

I got in touch with ICBC this morning and they made it sound very simple. You come in with 2 pieces of ID, the registration, and the bill of sale. You do not have to pay the sales taxes here but they provide you with the coverage and time frame that you need. Sounds like this may be the most reasonable and interesting way to get it home. I can store it here until you are able to fly out. Also can provide your first nights lodging and Im sure you will be offered many more as you cross this great country. More to consider!

Jerel, does this apply to folks from out of province?

I got a shipping quote. Door to door $2750 plus 10% fuel charge and I imagine HST on top of that. Another carrier wanted $4950 but that was in an enclosed trailer.

 The Club were instrumental in getting the government to pass the law for the antique plates. My Dad was involved, I think he was a registrar for a while, he had plate #40 on his 40 Ford convertible and #35 on his 35 3 window coupe. That was in the early 70's if I remember correctly. I have a 69 NS Antique plate, not sure when they started, I also have a Maine 62.

 Yes, just about positive it is for out of province drivers unless she misunderstood me. Think they are just happy to sell insurance.

Neither of the two people I talked to mentioned bringing any insurance with them as that is what they are going to provide.

 I agree. ICBC sells insurance as part of the permit.
