United Kingdom 2012 Defender 90 Puma 2.4 CSW Barolo Black
Shipping from uk to canada

I am contemplating shipping my Puma 90 from the Uk to Vancouver, and then spending about 5 months driving across Canada to Nova Scotia.
Does anyone have any experience of this type of trip?
What are the rules about temporarily importing a uk vehicle into Canada.
Any route suggestions welcome.
Thanks
Geoff. 90 Puma 2.4

Geoff, I will check with the local insurers about the rules for bringing in your truck temporarily. We see lots of vehicles from Europe through here in the summer months doing North American trips.

I can help you out with your BC route planning at a minimum, and give you a hand around Vancouver for sure. it's a Landrover thing...

Though I haven't posted here, I guess I must have decided to 'watch' the topic.

THis would certainly be something I'd be happy to consider.

Just for information's sake, does anyone have a rough or 'ballpark' figure for shipping a Defender over? Guessing it would most likely arrive in Halifax?

Apart from transit insurance (included in shipping maybe?) there would be motor insurance for Canada. Is there any vehicle inspection regime - similar to the forensic cleaning that Aus. and particularly NZ require for vehicles coming in?

I guess some rough info and figures now would let me know whether this was a 'go-er' or not.
