Making your move to Canada stress free

More than 20,000 people from the UK move to Canada each year. If you are soon to be part of that increasing number, the below information regarding shipping Household and Personal Effects we hope will be of assistance to you.

Available services:

  • Full Container shipping (20ft / 40ft / 45ft)
  • Groupage Part Load shipping
  • Motor Vehicle shipping
  • Airfreight to airport or residence

You can ship items into Canada Duty Free if you are taking up residency and have owned and used the effects for at least six months prior to your departure from the UK or you are a returning Canadian and have been away from the country for over 12 months. All new items or single items with a value over $10,000 will be subject to duty calculated on their value. Proof of purchase will be required.

When your effects arrive in Canada, you will be required to attend a meeting with local customs where you will be required to present your passport and complete customs forms.

All household and personal effects entering Canada are subject to physical examination by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA.) All items which may have come into contact with soil and vegetation such as gardening equipment, bicycles, patio furniture, footwear, golf clubs, vacuum cleaner bags etc. will be inspected. All such items should be thoroughly cleaned prior to move day although extra cleaning costs may still be incurred upon inspection.
