I have paid a large deposit and fully intend to buy a 1988 BJ74 that is now in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

I would like to have it trucked here to Virginia USA using uShip; hoping to get a good deal that way.

I have contacted one Customs Broker who seems to know nothing of cars, EPA, DOT, etc, and another who cannot fully understand that I will not be driving the car across the border myself.

Can anyone summarize this procedure for me, including necessary documents?
Anyone have specific companies to recommend, either brokers or truckers?
Thanks,
Jamie

I know a lot of people like to do it themselves. There is some info here on mud and I'm sure others will chime in. If you want a broker to handle it end to end, I can recommend using John S James Co www.johnsjames.com as a good, reliable and fair company to deal with. They can handle the exact scenario you've outlined.
