Before you leave the US with your vehicle, you must ensure that the vehicle is properly exported. US Customs requires all documentation to be submitted at least 72 hours before you intend to export your vehicle. At this point US Customs ensures the vehicle is not stolen or has any liens against it. Once you are cleared, the ownership paperwork will be cross-checked for accuracy and stamped for export by US Customs. While Canada Customs checks for the US Customs export paperwork, many consumers have reported this step is routinely bypassed by Canada Customs agents. In other cases, the importer was turned back to the US. It's best to ensure your vehicle is properly documented for export.

Most Canadian ground-based ports of entry permit vehicle importation 24/7 but some US Customs facilities only permit exports during certain business hours.
