Cross Border Moving to the US
After cross country moving, the next most popular long distance moving request we get is from people moving to the US. Technically, this is an international move. But in some cases, it’s not a very long distance at all. Other times, our customers move to California, Florida, or Texas, which are quite far indeed. Regardless of the distance, there are certain challenges involved in moving to the USA, such as customs regulations. Fortunately, this is an area in which we have a tremendous amount of experience. Our international moving staff, both in our office and out on the road, have been helping people move to from Toronto to the US for many years. They’ve really seen it all! And their extensive experience is your valuable resource, because it means that they’ll make sure your international relocation goes smoothly and without the stress and hassles people commonly experience when they undertake the journey of moving to a different country.

We offer a full range of professional overseas moving and packing services arranged specifically to your needs. All your belongings, including furniture, bulky pieces and appliances will be export-wrapped for protection on the journey. Furniture will be dismantled, where appropriate, and wrapped with multi-layered export wrapping material. “Krubble” is also used by our professional packers. This wonderful wrapping material is made up of bubble wrap on one side and kraft paper on the opposite side. Where items require additional protection, double wrapping and crating will provide you with the care you would expect from a Toronto overseas moving company that wants you as a repeat customer.

Just going to say that from Devon who took my initial inquiry, Moe who did the site visit, Katy who took my payment and answers my calls to everyone who helped me when we picked up boxes to Max and his assistant who picked up the stuff today, you guys are 100% A+ AWESOME. You have made moving seem easy, when everyone knows it’s one of the top 3 most stressful situations in life (along with divorce and a parent’s death).
