Key Relocation & Shipping tips you should know as an expat in Toronto
- With one of Canada’s largest major ports being in Toronto, relocating your belongings to Toronto is a lot easier given it has a major port.
- There are two options available to ship your items to Toronto, by air or sea freight.
- Air Freight shipments are typically utilised for smaller size shipments and have a faster transit time.
- Most expats relocating to Toronto choose the sea freight shipping option as it is generally more affordable and convenient while moving internationally. You could choose between the “less than container load”, “full container load” and “groupage service” options depending on your household size.
- It’s important to be aware that some removal companies will offer a full door to door delivery service, whereas some may require you to arrange the transportation of your items to and from the airport/port yourself.
- All your goods must be cleared through customs when shipping to Toronto. As such, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment to Canada. A reputable relocation firm will provide you with the appropriate customs declaration for you to complete and take care of all other necessary processes.
- There are a number of items prohibited to be shipped to Canada. It’s best to familiarise yourself with the list in advance of your move.
- Relocations companies are increasingly offering services in addition to shipping. Helping you find a home to live in, a school for your children and assistance with essential services such as accessing healthcare, applying for a driver’s licence and opening a bank account is becoming popular with expats.
