I am on a road trip so cannot help with account numbers but when doing a wire transfer, ETI's receiving account is their VanCity Credit Union account. A wire transfer does not involve Wells Fargo or any other institution that is mentioned on that PDF. A wire transfer is so simple and I don't understand why it is still so difficult to get the correct account number from ETI. Maybe someone on the forum who has done this recently can help with the account number.

I've attached the PDF I was sent for wire transfer, which like I previously said, USAA could not use, since it didn't have the Institution Code or Transit Code. I don't see VanCity account, only a Citizens Bank of Canada account.

My wife and I decided we'll call USAA as early as they open on Monday morning and ask what the absolute fastest way is to get the funds to ETI. I'm also booking an extra 6 hotel days (ouch!), on the off chance that the funds don't get to them in time. Hopefully we'll be able to cancel those hotel days more than 24 hours in advance and spend those days in our Escape!

Karen helped me last May get this figured out with ETI and I have the correct information that I tested successfully on XE.com for one transaction. I didn't use it after that because they had a free draft option that was easier and quicker.

I am sending you the correct Vancity info.

Thanks, Greg. What's the "fee draft" option you're talking about? If it's quicker, I'd be much happier using that technique, even if I have to use it with USAA (as I'm pretty sure setting up an XE account takes more time than I have).

I think calling ETI Monday and getting the routing/transit numbers then calling USAA to do a wire transfer should work. You can't carry a cashier's check across the border as they consider it cash - we researched this recently! I can understand your feeling of panic but this will work out by the time you pick up your trailer! Best of luck��

I did not know that, even if the check is made out to a 3rd party?

I pm'd you everything you should need to call USAA on Monday and send a wire transfer right in. You'll need to notify ETI as well to be looking for it and verify that it hits their bank. I wouldn't mess with anything else at this point. USAA should be able to verify the info I sent you is correct before transmitting.

When I read the customs info that is how it appeared. They ask if you are carrying more than 10k in cash every time we cross the border and they also consider a check as cash.

I wouldn't go crazy booking a hotel for extra days just yet. My wire from Wells Fargo took about 3 days. Good Luck.

When we wired money from Ohio we had some issues with some getting the correct account numbers for the transfer. We called Tammy from our bank and she gave us the contact at ETI's bank. The lady at our bank called the contact at ETI's bank and all was done in about 45 minutes.
