Shipping Container Costs to Canada

Getting your belongings to Canada doesn’t have to be daunting. Be it excess baggage, personal belongings, or your car, we know how to connect you with the best door-to-door shipping option possible for your journey. Whether you’re starting a new life in Montreal in the east or Vancouver in the west, it’s important to find the right moving company for getting everything there safely.

Different shipping options

With such a huge expanse of water between Canada and most of the rest of the world, you’d be forgiven for thinking it ‘removed’. Not to worry though, because it is actually an extremely accessible country where freight is concerned. Be it by air or sea, getting your belongings to the most apologetic nation on earth is nice and simple.

If you’re in a hurry then air is the quickest option, with most shipments arriving within three days. However, this speediness comes at a price, and the amount you can move is limited. If you’re looking for the most cost effective route and have time to spare, shipping to Canada by sea is by far your best option.

With international shipping, door-to-door delivery comes as standard, so even if you aren’t living close to one of the major ports getting your items to your new home shouldn’t be a problem. That said, you will have to allow a little more shipping time for the overland portion of the journey.

Major shipping routes

Given that Canada is connected to most of the rest of the world by sea, it’s no surprise that the sea is their best freight option. There are four major ports dotted along Canada’s east and west coasts:

  • Port Metro Vancouver
  • Montreal
  • Prince Rupert
  • Halifax

Vancouver’s the busiest of the four, but even Halifax processes hundreds of thousands of containers a year. Wherever you’re moving to in Canada, getting your items shipped there should be a fairly straightforward process.

The cost of international shipping to Canada

Ah yes, the money. This all comes down to where you’re shipping from. Moving from the UK isn’t going to be quite as affordable as moving from the US. There are plenty of ball-park figures floating about, including ours, but the only way to know exactly what your move will cost is to request a personalised quote.

Canadian customs

As with any country, there are certain restrictions on what you can bring into Canada. Noteworthy items are listed below, and you can visit the Canada Border Services Agency website for more details.
