Our support when moving to Canada

Are you considering moving to Canada? Emigrating to Canada is a significant decision, and we understand that you need reliable moving services to make your transition as smooth as possible. At Alfa, our expertise lies in global relocations, with a focus on moves originating from the Nordics, offering both airfreight and sea shipping methods to meet your specific requirements.

When moving to Canada, the choice of shipping method depends on your needs. Airfreight is convenient for smaller shipments, especially if you are planning a temporary move to Canada and don't need to transport furniture. However, for those looking to relocate with furniture and larger amounts of household goods, sea freight often proves to be the most budget-friendly choice. Shipping household goods to Canada from the Nordics by sea typically has an approximate transit time of 6-10 weeks from loading to delivery.

Planning ahead for a smooth relocation to Canada

To ensure a seamless move, we strongly recommend reaching out to us at least 6 weeks before your anticipated move date. This time frame provides us with enough time to plan and prepare for every aspect of your relocation.

Moving to Canada involves specific visa and work permit requirements. It's crucial to have these documents prepared and all customs paperwork in order before shipping your household items to Canada.

Our team is well-versed in the requirements and will provide guidance and support to ensure a hassle-free process. You can also find detailed customs information on importing household goods from this link as provided by the FIDI association, the largest global alliance of international moving and relocation companies.

To provide you with the most accurate cost estimate for your move, we will arrange a pre-move survey. During this survey, we will estimate the volume of your belongings, assess the accessibility of your home, and identify any delicate items that may require special handling or packing materials.
