Moving to Canada is an exciting, life-changing decision and, like any international move, requires a lot of thought and planning. Let Britannia Lanes, with our 30 years of experience, do the hard work for you, so that you can focus on how you’re going to enjoy your first days in your beautiful new surroundings.
Removals to Canada
Begin the process by contacting our international experts who will arrange for a surveyor to visit your home and begin coordinating all your requirements.
During the initial survey we will compile an electronic inventory of the items you wish to ship from your property. Our surveyor will be able to discuss the different options with you. It may be that you are anticipating a larger move and decide to ship a full container. On average, a 2 or 3 bedroom property will require a full 20ft container or a 4 to 5 bedroom house will likely fill a 40ft container. If we are using a container we will likely pack and load the items directly onto it from your home. Alternatives are available for smaller consignments, known as groupage. Groupage can range from one or two small boxes to a few items of furniture. These items will be export packed by Britannia Lanes and stored for consolidation with others in a full container - meaning you only pay for the space you use.
Packing for Canada
Our specialist export packing crew will package and box your personal items to the highest standard. Certain fragile and valuable items may require securing in tailor-made crates to ensure their safe transit.
Shipping to Canada
All items packed for shipping will be numbered and listed to aid in the seamless transportation of your items overseas.
Canada Container Port
It is essential for smooth clearance through customs that the correct documentation is in place. Britannia lanes has decades of knowledge and can take on this burden by knowing exactly what paperwork and visas are required. We would expect a full container load with a door-to-door service to take between 8 and 13 weeks to arrive. For a groupage consignment expected delivery times would be between 10 to 14 weeks, although estimated timings cannot be guaranteed.
Arriving in Canada
Household contents that have been owned for over one full year can be shipped into Canada duty free. Once all of the relevant documentation and customs inspections have taken place our trusted Britannia agents can then carry out the final step - delivery to your new home!
Currency in Canada
Once you and your items have arrived in Canada you will need to ensure that your money joins you. Britannia Lanes work with IFX who can transfer your money at very competitive rates. When contacting IFX you will only ever speak to Katie who looks after all of Britannia Lanes customers. Not only are IFX cheaper than the banks but also offer the personal touch. Join our current customers. Some have saved enough money transferring their currency through IFX to pay for their move with us!
