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.

This has been my second major move with iMove on one year. The first time my entire household was sent from Dorset in the UK to Phuket in Thailand. And my second move was my return back to the UK. IMove is a down to earth , easy to contact, "easy to communicate with" company. Every issue I had was dealt with promptly , kindly and patiently. The telephone system has immediate access to a real person at the end of the phone, who puts you through immediately to the person you need. Their comeback and answers are instant. Nikki Searle who managed my entire move was amazing....very calm with no hype or drama. And extremely flexible. Out of my many, many moves it was my second totally stress free move. ( My first stress free move was the initial one that iMove did for me last year.)!!!!! The packing team who packed me up in Phuket were amazing. Totally respectful. They worked calmly and quietly. And the team who unpacked me here in UK were extremely kind and considerate. I would absolutely recommend iMove! I wish I had known about them before. My thanks go very especially to Nikki here in UK, to her lovely unpacking team, and to Kh.Gene and the packing team in Thailand. Thank you all for another wonderful move.
Excellent service throughout from initial enquiries and quotes, packing, loading, delivery and unloading. Everybody was prompt, friendly, helpful and professional. Would recommend Imove to anybody - good price too!
Good job on time
