Whether you’re moving in search of a new start or relocating to take up a new job, a move across the northern border to live in Canada is rarely a bad one. Granted, the US is one of the best places to live globally, and New York arguably the biggest city you can ever live. However, Canada offers similar diversity without the hustle and bustle.

Vancouver, to be specific, ranks in many studies as the most livable city in North America. The city’s coastlines offer incredible views, and the fabulous beaches come to life during the summer. The city also has plenty of mountains for those who enjoy hiking and snow sports.

So, you should be extremely excited about making a move north, even if you plan to live in Canada for the rest of your life.

What’s Much Does it Cost to Move from New York to Vancouver?

Unfortunately, the prices can be slightly high. On average, you need about 2,574 to $2,845 to hire a 20-foot container to relocate to Vancouver. You can also ship your items via air. The cost is about $2,319 to $2,563.

However, if you prefer a full-service mover, prepare to part with at least $7,000. Indeed, for a four-bedroom home, you may spend up to $16,000 on the relocation process once you include the costs of car shipping, storage, visa application, and so on.

The other thing to remember is that the two cities are close to 5,000 miles apart. Therefore, the relocation can take up to four full days, sometimes more.

Finding the Best International Moving Company

By now, you must have realized that you need an international mover rather than a local or interstate mover. However, not all international movers are the same. The following considerations should help you identify the best fits your needs.

  • Reputable freight forwarder

International movers typically use freight forwarders to make sure your items are transported door to door. This way, you don’t have to worry about picking your items at a location you may not even be familiar with. Make sure to ask about the freight forwarder and research the company to ensure you can trust them.

  • Certified export packaging 

When relocating across country borders, items are inspected to ensure you’re not smuggling drugs or other prohibited items. More importantly, you need to obtain proper documentation to facilitate the clearing process. Your mover should have professional packagers with the knowledge to properly package your items for fast clearance at customs.

  • Experience in international moving 

Although even the best companies start from somewhere, international relocation is one of the times you should avoid novices. At least, make sure the staff knows what they are doing. Also, make sure they have experience in cross-national residential relocations. Otherwise, you may have your items held up at the border for ages.

How to Avoid Moving Scams

The other thing we must mention is moving scams. Imposters are currently everywhere, waiting to pounce on unsuspecting victims. Consider the following tips;

  • Research the company thoroughly 

Never give the job to someone about whom you don’t know much. Common resources where you can research a company’s status are the Better Business Bureau, AMSA, and the Department of Transportation.

  • Document everything 

Purchase a pen and notebook (or use your diary) to record every activity in every step of the move. From when you first contacted the company to when the unpacking, make sure it’s recorded. It makes it easier to report fraud.
