Living in Canada
Canada is famous for being one of the most beautiful countries in the world and is celebrated for having some of the friendliest inhabitants – everything about that sounds appealing to us. Canada is the second largest country in the world, yet it also has one of the lowest population densities, meaning there’s plenty of room for you and your family – plus anything you bring over using our Removals service.
The expansive amounts of unoccupied land in Canada provides endless amounts of stunning scenery, rolling mountains, ice blue lakes and jam-packed forests, a haven for lovers of adventure. Countryside and modern city life blend seamlessly in Canada, with many cities offering a cosmopolitan lifestyle with the great outdoors just on the doorstep for many residents. Which, after your Removals process is complete, will include you, too!
One of the biggest culture shocks for residents moving to Canada from the UK is the climate and the fact that you will be able to clearly distinguish one season from the next. You will finally be able to take full advantage of the summer months as Canada’s average temperatures, in the main inhabited regions, regularly reach the mid to late 20°C’s during the height of summer. In stark contrast to this, and one thing you may not adjust to so quickly, is that the winters are often snowy on a daily basis and temperatures can easily drop to fairly drastic minus temperatures. However, the snowfall won’t stop us from completing your Removals service, one way or another it will get to Canada, and so will you.
Once your Removals service is complete, you can begin to enjoy the wonderful landscapes of the great north.
Living in Canada
The second largest country in the world, Canada is a vast expanse situated in the northern part of the North American continent, but only the fourth largest by land area as its expanse is characterised by the most fresh water lakes in the world. It is a highly geologically active area with many earthquakes and potentially active volcanoes occurring there. The seasons are distinct there, and there can be particularly harsh winters in some areas, and warmer summers, although the climates vary across its vast area. It is a highly urbanised nation, with 82% of the population living in medium to large cities; this is understandable due to the harsh conditions at certain times of year. The population is also very diverse, as indigenous peoples remain but British and French colonisation has also resulted in European influence; as such its official languages are English and French. Despite this, multiculturalism is very important to the Canadian constitution and its equality and inclusiveness is recognised as a huge achievement. Canada also has strong national symbols, including the maple leaf in its flag, as well as the beaver and more recently the totem pole, originating from its indigenous cultures. Economically, it is the tenth largest in the world and is a top ten world trading nation with a highly globalised and mixed economy. Its main export is petroleum and crude oils, but manufacturing, mining and service sectors are also important for the economy.

What are the international removals to Canada costs?
Moving to Canada doesn’t come cheap, so Movecorp aims to keep all removals costs to Canada as affordable as possible. Whether you are sending an apartment, a terraced house, a five-bed detached or an office, we have removals to Canada options to suit all budgets.
Part-load allows you to ship items to Canada within a shared shipping container and you will only be charged for the space these goods occupy. This is the ideal choice for one-bed apartments and smaller homes. If you are shipping an entire office or a larger-sized home, you can pay for your own 20ft or 40ft shipping container to fill how you wish.
Your end destination in Canada will also be a contributing factor to the cost of removals, but your dedicated move coordinator will provide you with an itemised quote before you agree to anything.
What removals can I send to Canada?

Movecorp has the experience and skills to send 40 shipping cartons, beds, wardrobes, three-piece suites, appliances, sports equipment, office furniture and beyond.

What are the shipping methods for removals from the UK to Canada?
Removals to Canada via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Canada in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Removals via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Canada Removals is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Canada but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Canada service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Removals to Canada via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Canada. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
Removals to Canada via Sea Freight
For Removals to Canada, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Removals to Canada via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is the ideal Removals to Canada choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to Canada and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended Canada Removals method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.
Owing to our partnership with a number of global removals organisations, your goods will be delivered to the destination of your choice in Canada, by a team of movers that are committed to delivering a premium service.
