Shipping Container Costs to Canada

Victoria’s comfortable climate, beautiful landscape and rich heritage make it a very popular destination for expats and tourists alike. This beautiful Canadian region is known as “The City of Gardens” and places like Butchart Gardens, Beacon Hill Park and Abkhazi Garden make it easy to see why. More than 3.5 million people visit Victoria each year, making tourism a major source of income for the city. If you are in need of some retail therapy, head out to one of Victoria’s several shopping malls, such as the Hillside Shopping Centre and Westshore Town Centre, for all your shopping needs. Expats will have their pick of neighbourhoods to choose from, from low key, historic areas such as James Bay, to more dynamic, lively areas like Downtown Victoria. Sea lions, killer whales and orcas are just a few of the species of marine wildlife that can be spotted in the waters surrounding the city. There are also many whale watching tours and marine safaris for you to embark on! To help your move to Victoria, British Columbia go as smoothly as possible, we have put together a simple guide to help you choose what size shipping container to use. Two sizes are available: A 40-foot container, which can hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a vehicle along with the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
