    How It Works

    All goods destined for Canada are shipped via sea freight or airfreight, with flexible options available to serve every possible demand and budget. In order to meet the needs of every customer, White and Company offer two distinct options to choose from when sending your items to Canada:

    Part Load

    On the agreed-upon day, your belongings will be export-packed at your existing home in the UK and transported to our depot for onward shipment to your new Canadian residence.

    When choosing our part-load option, you will share a container with other White and Company customers who are also heading to Canada. If you are taking a smaller shipment, this is a fantastic, cost-effective option because you simply pay for the space your items take up in the container! One thing to consider when choosing the part-load option is that it may take a little longer for your belongings to arrive in Canada, especially when compared to a full-load move.

    Full Load

    If you are planning on sending a full house load of belongings to Canada, White and Company recommends using a full-load container. When you choose this option, the price will include the entire container’s space. Whilst more expensive than part-load moves, this option means you can fill your container any way you wish. The full-load service gives consumers much more flexibility and often arrives much faster than the part-load option.

    When you choose a full-load move to Canada, our staff in the UK will load your items into our vehicles and move them to our export packing depot. Your goods will then be securely loaded into a container heading for the port of entry nearest to your new residence in Canada.

    How Long Do Removals to Canada Take?

    How long it will take for your goods to arrive in Canada after leaving the UK will ultimately depend on which shipping method you have chosen for your move, as well as the specific area of Canada that you are moving to.

    Shipping to Canada can take anywhere from 7 to 12 weeks. You will also need to keep in mind that once your belongings arrive at port in Canada, there will be some additional processing time required for everything to clear customs and quarantine. Please view the table below which shows the average timeframe expected for goods to leave the UK and arrive on Canadian shores.

    Vancouver38 Days6 - 8 Weeks
    Calgary28 Days6 - 8 Weeks

    What Happens Once My Goods Arrive?

    When you move with White and Company, you will be assigned a dedicated account manager who will send all your paperwork to our partners in Canada. Once your goods have arrived in port in Canada, our trusted agent will contact you regarding anything else you may need to sign and to arrange the final delivery to your new home.

    If for any reason you need your items placed in temporary storage, White and Company are able to arrange storage in the UK or with our agents in Canada! Simply contact us for assistance and we’ll be happy to provide as much help as you require.

    Preparing for Your Move

    Although Canada is a truly vast country, stretching over 10 million square kilometres, it has a relatively small population of 35 million, with most of its residents residing in cities within 200 kilometres of the US border. Interestingly, out of this population around 531,584 consist of expats from the UK! Canada and the UK have plenty of ties and the transition for British expats should be a relatively easy one. In fact, Canada is highly regarded when it comes to welcoming new people, boasting more immigrants per capita than any other country in the Western World!

    Within its immense landscape, Canada consists of ten provinces and three territories with Ottawa being the capital city. Interstingly however, it is only the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the country! Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver take the top three spots in this regard.

    Thanks to its close ties to the UK and the commonwealth, Canada has been one of the top destinations for many British expats for quite some time. Whilst many make the journey across the Atlantic, it is not necessarily the easiest of relocations. Relocating to any new area can be stressful and this may be increased when moving overseas! Luckily, White & Company are here to help make the whole process easier.

    Our dedicated team of international removals specialists have years of experience in successfully relocating customers’ goods from the UK to Canada. So, be sure to ask us any and every question you may have. White & Company are here for you!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does it cost to move from UK to Canada?

    The cost of relocating from the United Kingdom to Canada will depend on a number of factors that are unique to your move. Some of the most important aspects that impact costs will be your chosen shipping method, the number of belongings you are taking with you, as well as your final destination within Canada itself.

    Your moving costs will vary substantially depending on whether you select White & Company’s part-load or full-load service. Part-load moves will allow you to save money, but will likely take longer to arrive at your new home in Canada. If you have a larger volume of belongings to be shipped overseas, you may need to use our full-load service. This will be more expensive, but it will give you more space as well as speedier shipping time.

    The cost of your move will also differ based on where you are moving to within Canada. The closer your destination is to the arrival port, the cheaper you can expect your move to be. If you are relocating to Canada from the United Kingdom, please contact White & Company. We will be delighted to answer any questions you may have about the costs of your move!

    How do I ship belongings from UK to Canada?

    Moving your belongings to Canada is a breeze with the assistance of White and Company. All items headed for Canada can be transported by either sea freight or airfreight, with specialised options available to meet all requirements and budgets. White and Company provides customers with two choices for shipping their belongings to Canada. Your criteria will ultimately determine the best option for you, the part-load or full-load. The part-load service is suited for those of you who are moving to Canada with fewer belongings. It boasts more competitive prices but can take a little longer for your shipment to arrive. Choosing our full-load service means you can move more items in less time, but it may be more expensive. Ultimately, the decision lies with you the customer but we are more than happy to assist with your move to Canada in any way we can.

    What is the cheapest way to move to Canada?

    Sea freight is the most affordable option for shipping your items to Canada. Customers who want to send their goods to Canada for less money should consider using our part-load service. White and Company’s part-load moves see your belongings placed in a shared container with those of other customers. By doing so, we are able to offer more competitive prices than our other full-load service. Choosing this option for your move will save you money, but bear in mind it will take a little longer for your stuff to get to Canada.

    Is it cheaper to live in UK or Canada?

    Although this is not always the case, the cost of living in the United Kingdom is often greater than in Canada. When moving to a new country, it is essential to look into the cost of living in the area you are considering calling home. You should explore the possible costs before deciding where you’ll stay because these prices may vary substantially depending on where you choose to live.

    Can you immigrate to Canada if you are over 55?

    Yes, if you are above 55 years old, you can immigrate to Canada. However, it is important to know that age can be a key consideration in certain immigration processes. The Canadian immigration system, particularly the Express Entry programme for skilled workers, awards points based on various criteria, including age, with younger candidates receiving more points. There are still plenty of options for those looking to immigrate to Canada over the age of 55 including family sponsorship, business immigration and Provincial Nominee Programs. You should consider consulting with a Canadian immigration lawyer or a certified immigration consultant who will be able to provide you with personalised advice that is unique to your situation.

    Is healthcare free in Canada?

    Canada’s healthcare system is funded mainly by provincial or territorial general tax revenue and is a free service for citizens of the country. This means that as a permanent resident or landed immigrant living in Canada, you can apply for access to publicly-funded Medicare health services. Medicare offers basic medical benefits including doctor visits, hospital stays, and certain tests, all provided either for free or at a reduced price.

    What items can’t I take to Canada?

    Canada has some rigorous restrictions governing what can and cannot be imported. The list of prohibited items includes all the conventional contraband such as illegal narcotics, but it also includes some items acceptable in certain countries but prohibited in Canada for health and safety reasons. Canada has very strict gun control laws. Any firearms and weapons, including certain types of knives and pepper spray, must be declared and will need to meet specific legal requirements for importation. To avoid complications when your items arrive, we recommend that you consult the Canada Border Services Agency website.
