Your Furniture/Personal Possessions

Things to consider when planning a move!

For the move from the UK to Canada I recommend PSS International Removals; a family business with over 29 years experience & over 7,000 successful relocations to Canada, they understand how stressful it can be relocating your family and belongings across the Atlantic.  Each customer receives personalised service from a professionally trained team of Removal Co-ordinators who take a personal interest in your move, assisting you every step of the way.

They offer, and I recommend a FREE NO OBLIGATION estimate with an expert who will give you advice on what to take, answer your questions, assess the packing requirements and prepare a detailed list of your Household Effects. Of course there are often items that you may be undecided about and they can give you an individual estimate for these items to help finalise your decision.

 What should I take and how are my belongings insured?

PSS is able to offer a comprehensive removal service whether you have a few boxes or a full household. 

  • For full containers PSS offers a complete, seamless packing and shipping from door to door.  Goods are loaded at your residence directly into the shipper’s container which is sealed all the way through to your new residence Canada. 
  • For shipments of less than a container load they offer a complete packing and removal of effects to their depot where it is consolidated and shipped in a shared container to Canada where goods are de-consolidated cleared and delivered to your residence.
  • For smaller moves of  just your clothing, photos and sentimental items or just excess baggage shipments (personal effects cartons only) they offer a pack your own service where they supply and deliver cartons to your UK residence and collect them once packed for shipment in a shared container.  You then pick the cartons up at the warehouse in Canada.

Some people moving to Canada take everything except their electrical items due to the voltage differences while other people only take their photographs and personal items.  It really is a personal decision!  Occasionally, the folks who take the minimum regret this decision later as they spent years building up a home and now have to go to the expense and inconvenience of starting all over.  On the other hand those who shipped all their furniture sometimes regret doing so and find once they are here that many items do not fit the style of their new home.

PSS rates are very competitive and so are the rates they offer for transit insurance which includes all risks door to door coverage.  They have friendly sales and coordinating teams; and are there to help with any questions or queries you may have.  Give them a call, they'd be glad to help.
