Finding the right documentation for a Canadian vessel used to be quite difficult. You had to drive somewhere to pick it up, or print it from your computer. Then, you had to fill it out, mail it in and wait. Of course, if there were mistakes, it could be sent back to you. Then, you’d have to start the entire process all over again. We realized that there had to be a better way to go about helping people to get the Canadian documentation they needed. So, we created our company, which offers a new, better way of getting Canadian vessel documentation: online
Online Documentation for a Canadian Vessel
Documentation for vessel in Canada is important. These can serve as proof of ownership and so much more. That being said, the process used to put the documentation together shouldn’t be difficult in and of itself. It shouldn’t take hours to put all of this together. So, we made it possible to just find all of the documentation you need in one place. All you have to do is go to our site, find the documentation that’s right for you and your vessel, and then fill it out. When you do all of that, you’ll see just how much easier it is to put this documentation together than it used to be.
That online convenience is one of the most important parts of the documentation. That’s what’s truly new and exciting about this: you can fill out all of that documentation without having to take time out of your day. Instead of sitting at a desk and making sure your penmanship is perfect, you can just type into your phone, tablet or other device from the comfort of your home. Or, you can do so from your office, while standing in line, or any other location with internet access. You could even file this documentation while standing on your boat itself.
A Customized Process
We know how difficult it used to be, so we tailored our entire process so that it’s easier than ever. For example, there are just three steps to our documentation. That’s it, that’s all there are: three. And, to be frank, the third step is “enjoy your vessel,” which means that the process is really two steps long. All you have to do is find the documentation that your vessel needs, and then fill it out. Then, press a few buttons and it’s sent in. We make sure that your documentation looks right and is sent to the proper place. Instead of dropping it in the mail, you can press a button and be on with your day.
Of course, we believe that integrity is the most important part of the business. In our business, “integrity” means a lot more than just being honest with our customers. Sure, that’s critically important, but it’s also important that our secure server has integrity, too. Before we let anyone use our site, we made sure that it was as secure and strong as possible. We never wanted to wake up to a news story about how our site got hacked. So, we beefed up our online application process as much as possible. Once we knew that it was completely secure, only then did we allow others to use our site.
“Certificate of Registration” is one of the kinds of Canadian vessel documentation that people are most familiar with. We certainly make it so that you can get one of those documents at our site. However, we offer so much more than that. For example, you can get “First Time Registration” at our site. These certificates aren’t always the easiest things to hang onto, so we made it easy to get a replacement certificate at our site as well.
To make sure that our business reaches as many people as possible, we want to offer so much more than just Certificates of Registration. When you come to our site, you’ll also find lesser used yet still very necessary forms, like our “Application for Transcripts of Vessel.” There are a few things we’d like to point out about these particular forms. Namely, they’re for general information use only, as they’re uncertified transcripts. Remember: if you need information for a legal purpose or an official one, make sure to get a transcript that’s been certified. To be “certified” means that a Registrar has verified what the transcript says.
Of course, if you click on our site, you’ll find it’s possible to get transcripts of both kinds. Instead of running around to find your own Registrar to certify and verify your transcript, all you have to do is click a button. Beyond that, just put in your vessel’s official number as well as its name, and the transcript is yours. As we’re a company that primarily deals with forms online, we normally offer forms online. However, if you want a hard copy, that’s possible, too. All you have to do is enter your mailing address in the large block of text there, and we can send you a hard copy.
There are some facts we want our customers and potential customers to know about our transcripts. For example, if you’ve registered your vessels with the Small Vessel Register, then you can’t get online transcript orders. By that same token, if you have gone through the Small Vessel Register, then mortgages or assignments aren’t permitted. It’s also important to keep in mind that the uncertified transcripts may not 100% percent up to the minute. There may be pending transactions the Vessel Registration Office has gotten but haven’t processed yet, which is the kind of thing that may not be reflected in an uncertified transcript.
Sometimes, you need to get a transcript quickly. Whether it’s certified or uncertified, there are times when you need the transcript to get into your hands as quickly as possible. When those times come, you shouldn’t have to wait around hoping that the mail gets them to you when you need them. So, to counteract this, we offer priority request and rush processing. This is exactly what it sounds like: we make sure that your request is marked as a true priority, and we have our professionals work around the clock to get it to you fast. We can do all of this for the low price of $70 CAD, which gets your forms to you without breaking the bank.
Using Tech for You
We also understand that sometimes credit cards don’t work. Credit card technology has come a long way, but sometimes they don’t work, or there’s a snafu, or some other issue. That’s perfectly understandable. When something like that happens, it absolutely shouldn’t preclude you from getting the kind of Canadian vessel registration that you need right in the moment. After all, if you get stopped by the authorities without having the right vessel registration, they aren’t going to accept “there was a problem with my credit card” as an excuse. So, we see this as one more way that we can help our customers.
Should you have some kind of issue with your credit card, you can still purchase the documentation. All you have to do is click on “My card information is not working; I would like to continue my submission and receive a call from a specialist regarding payment.” That means exactly what it sounds like: one of our experts will call you up, and walk you through paying for your documentation. That kind of personalized, individual attention is one of our specialties. You don’t have to have a red card issue to talk to us, however. For more information, feel free to call us at (800) 419-9569 or head to our site.
