Florida has been known for ages as the mecca for sun, beaches, shopping, and a relaxed life style near the sea, it would be crazy not to have it as part of your retirement plan. Florida enjoys of amazing weather through the whole year and welcomes hundreds of people yearlong. Due to this, Florida has become more and more popular among snowbirds and as a result has started to pull people not only from the northern states but from across the border as well: Canada. Canada shares the same type of weather as most of our northern states and goes through very harsh winters, as soon as summer hits Canadians look to reallocate immediately to avoid getting stuck with the snow for the season. Although Canada's main points are only a few miles away from the farthest US cities, the border cross is what adds time to deliveries and can be very expensive.
Within Florida, Tampa is one of the popular destinations for many of these people, yearlong this route services hundreds of people and is always in great demand, regardless of the snow. The Canada-Tampa route falls within one of the most transited East Coast routes and directs its flow according to the season. During summer the route has an equal demand either from the North or from the South, when summer start to turn into fall and trees start losing their last leaves, the flow demand changes to North-South as people are starting to move before snow settles in. Once winter hits demand is still on a North-South basis, however due to bad road conditions most of the routes are closed and delays are almost guaranteed. After the snow starts to melt, spring flowers start to show the demand starts to change course from South-North as snowbirds are looking to return to their homes.
Most companies do not process customs paperwork for the border cross between Canada and US, although it's is just a line that separates both countries, costs to cross a car on a carrier can be very expensive and not all drivers are certified to drive out of Canada or United States. When transporting a car from Canada it is always recommended to cross the car yourself through customs as and schedule pickup from the nearest points, such as Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester or any point you choose. Once the car is within the U.S the car transport is easier and more cost effective.
