Removal Service To Canada

Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to Canada, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.

Sea Freight Service – Container Shipping

For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.

Air Freight Service – For Small Moves

For the quickest transportation of your belongings to Canada, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in Canada as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

Canada Removals FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist

How much does removal to Canada from the UK cost?

The cost of removals to Canada obviously varies greatly depending on the number of household goods you are taking and where in Canada you are moving to. The good news is that, as so many people move from the UK to Canada, the removal costs to Canada are surprisingly cheap – especially in areas around the big cities such as Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

The cost of moving to Canada will also depend on whether you use a sea freight service or air freight service for moving your personal belongings.

The cheapest removals to Canada are by sea and costs per cubic feet decrease significantly as volume increases. You’ll certainly find that it is a lot cheaper to use our furniture removal service than to replace them all when you arrive in Canada.

We offer a range of removal options depending on your budget. This includes economy part load road freight or shared shipping container, dedicated road freight or full container load by sea or express air freight for small and urgent moves.

You can use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move to Canada.

Remember our removal quotes are for a comprehensive door-to-door service including packing and standard customs clearance. Our quote does not include customs fees and duties which may be payable to local authorities on arrival.

How long do removals to Canada from the UK take?

Removals to Canada usually take 6-9 weeks for our full container service and 8-16 weeks for our part load (groupage) service. These times can vary significantly depending on whether you are moving to the eastern side of Canada, British Columbia and the west coast or somewhere in central Canada.

These times are for delivery to port, you will need to allow additional time for customs clearance on arrival in Canada.

Removal Services to Canada

At Simpsons, we offer a variety of overseas removal to meet your needs. Do not worry if you are unsure about which is most suitable for you as our advisers will be happy to talk you through the different options.

Full Household Overseas Removal Service from the UK to Canada

For full household removal of a 3 or 4-bedroom house, we usually recommend a full container for your sole use. These usually come in two sizes –20 and 40 ft.

We will pack the container at your house and it will be secured and customs sealed before heading off to the port.

Shared Container (Part Load) Overseas Removal Service from the UK to Canada.

For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost-effective option is our shared container service, sometimes called part load. In this case, we pack your belongings at your home and take them to one of our depots where they will be loaded into a container with other customers’ belongings heading for the same part of Canada.

This is a cheap option for removals to Canada as the costs are shared proportionally. Even for large household removals, customers will use our part-load removals services as it is the most cost-effective way to send personal effects overseas.

Box and Bag Removal Service from UK to Canada

For small moves to Canada, we recommend our box and bag removal service. This is the cheapest way to move your belongings to Canada. We provide you with export-quality cartons/boxes and packing materials.

We then collect your packed boxes and transport them to Canada by air or sea freight depending on your preference and budget.

Simpsons  provides a removal service to any destination in Canada from the UK.

Popular destinations for our removal services include:

International Removal Services For Canada

The best removal service to Canada will depend on your needs.

For the most cost effective removal service to Canada, sea freight will be ideal for your needs.

If you are looking to receive your items in the quickest timeframe, we recommend that you use our air freight service for removals to Canada

You can use both air freight or sea freight service for removals to Canada. Air freight can be used for goods that are urgently needed in your move and sea freight can be used for items that are not as important.

Whether you are on a budget, or in a hurry, Simpsons provide removal services to suit your needs.

International Removal Insurance for your Move to Canada

We would recommend taking out the Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.

Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines that take special care of personal shipping containers, we cannot control every eventuality.

Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whilst they are in transit.

You can start the process of moving belongings to Canada by completing our online cost calculator for moving overseas.

You will receive an estimated quote for removals to Canada. For a more accurate quotation, we recommend that you book a home survey with our team who will calculate the cost of the move based on the volume of goods being sent to Canada.

Alternatively, you can give our team a call on 01322 949 557 for more information about our services.

Furniture removal to Canada from the UK

Moving furniture to Canada from the UK needs far more care and attention than domestic removals. Each item is carefully packed using export wrapping before being loaded into the container.

You can take all kinds of furniture to Canada, including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards, and white goods such as washing machines and fridge freezers.

We recommend using Simpsons for furniture removals to Canada as our highly skilled workers will make the process feel easy. Moving abroad can seem a stressful experience, however, Simpsons International Removal will guide you through the process of moving from the UK.

Simpsons is a moving company that provides vehicle services to Canada.

There are a variety of methods to move your car or another vehicle to Canada. For example in a container or by a roll-on-roll-off service.

It is often cost-effective to send your car in the same container as your house removal so that everything arrives at the same time.

There are some important requirements you need to be aware of before you send your car to Canada. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options for car and Canada removals.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.

Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)

Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.

Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor

Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.

Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.

Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.

Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.

China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.

Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.

Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.

Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
