Are you planning on moving to Canada or moving to the United States from Canada? We have been longtime friends of our neighbors to the north and promise you the most stress free and fast move of any moving company in the industry. As with any international move there is a process everyone must follow and if you know what to expect there won't be any hiccups. Our Buffalo office is about 12 miles away from the border down 190 so we have been a favorite of families moving to Canada for decades.
In addition to be being familiar with the cities, towns, and neighborhoods of Canada, Cook Moving Systems also knows what to expect at Canadian Customs as well. Here is a quick breakdown of the process for your own knowledge:
- Box Labeling
Any box in which you packed yourself must be labeled Packed by Owner" in addition to an itemized list on the side of the carton.
- Acceptable Shipments
As you can imagine there are certain limitations as to what you can move into a new country. Food, liquor, tobacco, pets, plants and firearms must all be cleared well before your move to ensure a speedy Customs process.
- Personal Identification
Please make sure all of your family members have their valid personal identification ready before the moving date arrives.
- Canadian Customs
You must be present when your items clear customs in Canada. Your move coordinator will make arrangements for you at the customs office closest to your delivery site. If you are not present at this time your belongings will be "held in bond" and cause a hitch in our overall moving scheme. This is a straightforward process which only requires you to be present.
