As if moving wasn’t complicated enough! Moving can be an arduous process. Whether it’s moving cross-town, moving cross country, or moving cross border—the relative difficulty of moving increases as the distance, and borders crossed increases.
Let’s get to the facts. You’ve got two options when moving across the border from Canada to the USA, or the USA to Canada.
1. You rent a truck and move your own stuff across the border.
While this may be the financially cheaper option, it comes with a serious set of challenges. Firstly, you have to pack and move your own stuff. This is a pain in the butt—literally. Secondly, that means you’ll have to CLEAR ALL OF YOUR ITEMS, through customs. If you’ve never done this before, let me tell you, it’s no picnic. Carnets, declaration forms...the list goes on. You think bringing a box of Cuban cigars across the border is tough? Try an entire truckload or two of your personal belongings.
2. You hire a professional international moving company.
Let’s get something out of the way off the top. Yes, there are expenses involved in hiring an international moving company. However, in my opinion, the rewards of this far outweigh the costs. From packing up your stuff, to customs forms, to setting it all up in your new house. A professional Toronto moving company does it all, wall-to-wall. The peace of mind you get from a professional moving company, when you’re moving from Canada to the USA or the USA to Canada is unsurpassed. Not only do they handle your belongings with care, but they handle the customs process as professionals.
GETMOVERS are the cross border moving EXPERTS. Our knowledgeable team handles everything from junk removal to customs declarations. Take the hassle out
Now there are some things that can be done before the movers arrive to pick up your stuff. A couple simple tasks can go a long way to both saving you money, and saving you time.
1. Junk Removal
Yep, you heard me right. A junk removal process can seriously lower the cost of your move. It’s time, friend. Decide what junk you wanna keep and what junk you want to throw away. The more junk you get rid of, the lower your moving costs. Since long haul moving is generally calculated by weight and distance—it’s simple math—less weight your moving company carries for you, the more you save.
2. Packing Boxes
Another thing you can do on your own to save a bit of cash on your move is to pack your own boxes. This can be a tedious task, but in the end can save you a ton of dough. Also, it can be fun to pack up all of your old stuff and reminisce about old times. This can be an important part of the segue to your new life.
If you’re opening up a new chapter in your life and moving from Canada to the US, call GETMOVERS and see the difference experience makes!
I never knew were having a company that suggests international moving, but GetMovers managed such a task. We needed to transport the equipment to the airport – our branch in France waiting for arrival on the next day. The team adapted to the situation and offered me several solutions. We used two trucks and special containers to provide full safety. The whole process took several hours, which is much quicker than usual. Thanks!
