I shipped an old Pontiac engine from the US to Toronto. You should know that to execute this, you must do a lot of work to get the motor ready for shipment. You want it on a pallet and the person shipping it has to be able to get it up onto the truck. You may be able to get the trucking company to send a truck with a liftgate, but don't count on it. In this case, i also had to line up a customs broker, as the trucking company didn't have one. I used Bay City Brokers in Toronto. They were great. With all of that done, the shipment went smooth as glass and Uship was a great experience overall.
