Costs of shipping to Canada
Prices for shipping to Canada are dependent upon the amount of furniture, household goods and personal items you have to move. We measure the items and work out the volume in either cubic feet or cubic metres. Prices are then based on the amount of space your goods will take up in the shipping container. Other factors that effect the cost of the removal and shipping to Canada is the amount of export packing required, cost of the ocean freight, and delivery agents costs in Canada. Prices also take into consideration the service level required, whether you require a box packing service or if you are packing yourself, whether you require an un-packing service or a straight forward delivery into rooms designated by you. You may require a special crating service, parking suspensions, ladder lifts, transhipment vehicles all these costs will be factored into your removal quotation.
