International Movers UK To Canada

Overseas Moving Companies United Kingdom To Canada

International Moving



To get your items to Canada, it is recommended that you work with an international moving company with overseas shipping expertise. Working with a shipper not only gives you peace of mind, it leaves you free to focus on the most important part of your move…getting yourself and your loved ones safely relocated. While you will generally not need to pay taxes and duty when you arrive, there are other costs to consider. There are port fees, storage fees, and other expenses.

Most of your household goods can be imported to Canada free of taxes and duty. There are some exceptions, of course, for items such as explosives and firearms, which are strictly prohibited, and alcohol and tobacco, which are both limited and taxed.

For the shipping itself, you will have options. Air freight is the most expensive method of transporting your goods. Most people save air freight for their most precious items, such as antiques or other valuables. For the rest of your shipment, you can arrange for a shipping container to be taken by sea. A full container, which should be adequate for moving the average two-bedroom house, costs £5,100 – £6,900 and will take 3-5 weeks to arrive in Canada. A half container is a few hundred less. Of course, this number is not all-inclusive and unexpected costs do arise. Working with a shipper will enable you to get a fixed cost estimate you can count on.

Some people arrive with their household goods. If you will arrive in Canada at the same time as your imports do, Canadian customs officials require you to submit Form Form BSF186 – Traveling with Goods. Most people arrive before their belongings do. In that event, you will complete Form BSF186A – Goods to Follow. Then, you just need to make arrangements to be present when your items arrive.

Are vehicle imports permitted?

Canada grants very few exceptions on vehicle imports from overseas. Part of the reason for this is that Canada does not allow mechanically modified vehicles to enter the country and all vehicles entering the country from outside of North America will need modifications. Why? Because vehicles in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. are driven on the right side of the road, rather than the left like in the U.K. and most other countries.

Some exceptions are made for antique or collectible vehicles, with the condition that they are not to be driven in Canada.

Three Men and a Truck

Overall, moving to Canada from the U.K. is easier because of the close relationship between the two countries. The two countries share a monarch, Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and even some governmental functions. More importantly, the two countries share similar quality of life standards and a common language.

Three Men and a Truck is an overseas moving company that believes that moving should be fun and exciting. Working with our team of international shipping experts is the best investment you can make for a seamless move. Reach out today to get your free, customized shipping quote.
