Cross Border Moving – Moving between countries is a complicated process.

Real Canadian Movers takes the liberty of helping you through the necessary steps of preparing documentation, as well as dealing with customs at the border. We can even set up a customs broker for your move to streamline your process even further.
Planning your move across the border should begin months in advance to ensure you have all of your bases covered. Accurate labelling of your belongings is essential to your movers having an easy time at the border. Furthermore, take care to make sure that you and your family’s passports, birth certificates, and social insurance/security numbers are up to date and not expired.
Furthermore, when moving from Canada to the US, it is actually not necessary for you to be present at the time of your goods crossing the border. It is necessary, however, for you to enter the US and declare residency before your shipment can cross into the US. Both countries have detailed and specific regulations regarding what items you can and can’t take across the border and what is prohibited.
