Default Best place to cross from NY ??

hello,

since I may be bringing my vehicles with me when I cross into Toronto, and will of course need for my vehicles to be inspected by U.S. Customs (after presenting the documents to them at least 72 hours before), where would be the best place to cross into Canada? I just went to the U.S. Customs website and there seem to be so many ports for vehicle inspection. We will be staying in Markham, so will it be Buffalo, Syracuse, or ???

There is no crossing at Syracuse. The quietest crossing is generally
Queenston-Lewiston which connects I-190 to Hwy 405 and then to the QEW into
Toronto.

I don't know about crossing into Canada, but definitely do not cross into USA through the Peace Bridge in Buffalo. The waiting time is very long, and the immigration officers there have a serious niacin deficiency.

What about a Port of Entry at Thousand Island Bridge
Lansdowne, ON / Alexandria Bay, NY?
Anybody crossed a border over there?
We are going to drive from NJ to Oshawa,ON and we want to avoid Toronto.

Thanks

Etna,

have you investigated if U.S. Customs has a port for vehicle inspection close to that crossing?

That's a pretty good crossing to use.
