Shipping Container Costs to Toronto, Canada

Toronto is Canada's most densely populated city, located on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario. Similarly to Britain, Toronto has four distinct seasons, being warm and humid in the summer and then cold in the winter. There is no lack of job opportunities in this city, being home to several large financial institutions as well as many jobs in film, IT, communications and media, to name but a few. Canada is known worldwide for its brilliant education and health care systems and British expats will feel right at home with its extremely multicultural population. Brimming with culture, Toronto is home to many dance and theatre companies and those of you who love to shop will no doubt enjoy the city's many shopping districts. It's no wonder so many expats find their home in this exciting city.

Transporting your belongings to Toronto couldn't be easier. If you need assistance in choosing a shipping container size, this guide will help: A 20-foot container should accommodate a 3-bedroom house, with enough space remaining for items such as a car or motorbike. On the other hand, a 40-foot container would be the more appropriate size for the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house. Whichever size you end up choosing, your move to Toronto is sure to be a smooth one.
