You have a discerning eye and a passion for the classic, unique and even exotic, when it comes to vehicles. You are always browsing, whether in person (made possible again, yay travel!) or online. There’s no shortage of ways to fall in love with your next roadster, sites like Shiftgate, and Barret-Jackson have our buying trigger finger tempted every time we peruse their auctions. Whether you’re a classic collector or a statement starter (hello: Mecum auctions lets you bid on racecars?!), the challenge isn’t finding the unique vehicles of your dreams, it’s getting those beauties to you, wherever you are.
For many, the mere thought of the logistics involved with paperwork, transport, taxation and all the other matters associated with making large, cross border, complex purchases is enough to dissuade them from fulfilling their auto ownership dreams. At BorderBuddy, we’re dream makers.
Don’t just take our word for it, in the words of Stacy Puckett Taylor, Vice President of Car Culture at Shiftgate:
“We’ve had a longstanding partnership with BorderBuddy that allows us to focus on finding the best cars from all over the world and importing and exporting them to 1000s of car lovers per year. They know the ins and outs of importing luxury cars and our clients have been incredibly satisfied working with them.”
How? We shift you out of the “many dreams left unfulfilled” bucket and into one comprised of the increasing number of delighted auto enthusiasts who are using BorderBuddy to get their dream cars into their garages! It’s remarkably simple, once you work with a trusted BorderBuddy expert, who like you, dreams in chrome. We have established relationships with auto auctions, border services, and various shipping/carrier transports. Together with our BorderBuddy technology and industry-leading processes and protocols, we make the purchase and shipment of your classic, unique, cross-border vehicle a breeze.
How does it work?
e-Commerce has changed the game when it comes to buying most things, unique cars are one of the markets that have really flourished with the freedom of online browsing, listing and buying. Barrett-Jackson and Shiftgate, for example, boast hundreds of vehicles you won’t find at your local auto dealer, catering to discerning auto aficionados, all over the world. The fun part remains, you browse, barter and buy your vehicle. BorderBuddy will assist you in quickly clearing customs in 4 simple steps:
- Get a customs quote in no time with our patented customs calculator, always free of charge
- You send us the invoice for customs
- You pay us directly and securely
- You sit back and relax while we (efficiently) take care of your documents for import. We’ll let you know when it’s ready!
BorderBuddy has been helping cross-border buyers like you for decades. There are some complexities with paperwork that we’re well aware of and well-versed in, inspections and even some things to watch for when it comes to Canadian regulations vs USA regulations. We don’t want you ever feeling alone or left in the dark, so if at any point, you feel unsure about anything, our BorderBuddy agents are available in minutes to take your calls (with a real, live person on the other end!) and assuage any concerns or uncertainties you may have.
We’re your buddy at the border, and before, and after. We’re driven by innovation, and making dreams come true. We get the passion you have for unique, classic and exotic cars, and we specialize in getting them to you.
Once your paperwork is ready, you can bring your vehicle or vehicles across the border, seamlessly, with all taxes prepared and paid for. You’ll breeze through with all your paperwork, then it’s up to you where the road takes you!
