Here’s the process for filing your vehicle in AESDirect, the export filing system hosted by U.S. Customs’ Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). The requirement covers any vehicle that is self-propelled, to include cars, snowmobiles, tractors and motorhomes.
- Complete our two-page application online. It starts below.
- Check your email for the filing confirmation number (ITN), usually processed at the close of business, around 6 pm Central Time.
- Pay our invoice. We charge US$ 35. The bill will be sent by email after you receive the ITN. All major credit cards are accepted via Square or PayPal.
- Send your 14-digit ITN to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 72 hours before your vehicle reaches the border. Contact the local CBP port for its specific requirements. We have contact information and procedures for the most common ports on our website.
This will get your vehicle over to Canada.
Now let’s get started. First, legal stuff. You must allow us to file in AESDirect on your behalf as your authorized agent.
