Shipping Container Costs to Vancouver, Canada

The coastal city of Vancouver is located in British Columbia, Canada, and is one of the country’s most multicultural areas. This cosmopolitan city is known throughout the world as one of the most liveable cities on the planet, with a high quality of life. Stunning architecture can be found throughout the city, from modern buildings, like the Harbour Centre and the Vancouver Library Square, to Art Deco landmarks, such as the Marine Building. Vancouver is one of the warmest cities in Canada, but also one of the wettest, with rainfall mostly occurring between the months of November and March. The music and entertainment scene in this city is thriving and many successful bands started out in Vancouver. The Orpheum Theatre and the Commodore Ballroom are just two of the many live music venues to visit and spot the next breakout music artist. With many stunning mountains, lakes and green open spaces located so close to Vancouver, you can enjoy any number of outdoor activities - from hiking and mountain biking to fishing and skiing. Whether you choose to spend your weekends outdoors in the fresh, Canadian air or sipping a cocktail at the local jazz club, Vancouver is sure to deliver every time. Arranging the shipping of your personal items to your new home of Vancouver is essential and we can help that process go as smoothly as possible. If you’re transporting the items from a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot shipping container should be just right. If you’re transporting more, such as the contents from a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a family car, a 40-foot container would be more suitable.
