How to Obtain a Quote for Removals to Canada

Mar 13. 2024

One of the essential elements of planning a move to Canada will be arranging the logistics of moving your household effects and furniture from the UK to Canada. No matter whether you’re moving to Calgary, Vancouver or Toronto, finding a reputable professional international removal company to assist with the transition will be key to success. Obtaining a quote from them will help you to both budget for the move and arrange the best services for your move.

With decades of experience in co-ordinating removals to Canada, we understand the complexities in such transitions. Here we’ll guide you through the process of obtaining a quotation for your move to Canada.

Initial Enquiry:
The first step in the process is to make contact with the international removals company and convey as much information to them as you can. They’ll need to know the destination you’re moving to and intended moving dates; the size of your household and some indication of how densely the property is furnished; as well as any specialist items that you want to take with you.

The Pre-Move Survey:
Once the removal company has received your enquiry, they will make contact with you to arrange a pre-move survey. This can be done either in-home, whereby a surveyor will visit your property, or at a distance via a video link. Whichever form of survey is performed, you’ll be able to ask any questions you may have. The surveyor should be able to talk you through the moving process, customs regulations and insurance options.

Generation of the Quotation:
Once the pre-move survey has been completed, your removal company should supply you with an accurate quotation specific to your requirements. It should essentially cover the cost of the move, including the correct number of removal crew operatives, the necessary number of vehicles and the chosen mode of transport be this by air, sea or land), packing materials, customs clearance and any additional services such as packing and/ or storage.

Acceptance of the Quotation: A quotation will be sent to you either electronically or via post, depending on your preferences. Review it carefully and address any questions or concerns you may have with your removal company. Once you are entirely satisfied with the terms and pricing, ensure you contact the company to secure the booking. Maintain a dialogue with your chosen company to finalise the logistics of the move to Canada, including supplying relevant paperwork for customs clearance, scheduling packing, if necessary and finalising move dates.
