Once you know where in Canada you’ll be living and have an idea of when you’ll want to move, contact us for an estimate of what it’ll cost to move your possessions to Canada. We also have an online calculator to help speed up the process if you find yourself donating heavy furniture and items you can part with to make the move a little easier on yourself. We can also quickly and accurately identify the size and weight of the move thanks to our experience in moving families across North America in order to help you be properly prepared with regard to your moving budget.
If you’re also interested in our packing services, we’ll arrange a time and arrive with the proper supplies to get your items safely packed up for the move. We can also arrange for temporary storage if you’re not quite ready to move into your new home in Canada. We’ll store your belongings in one of our secure facilities here in Canada and have everything ready to go when you get here.
Once you’ve sorted out the logistics of your move, you can focus on the great things about moving from California to Canada. Depending on where you’ve chosen to relocate, there’s a lot to love about life in Canada. Here are a few of them to get you excited about your move:
Seasons. You’ll get to experience all four seasons in all of their glory no matter which coast you choose to call home. From seaside summers in the Maritimes to watching the leaves change in Ontario, hitting the ski slopes in British Columbia or taking in the Northern Lights in the Yukon, Canada’s natural beauty is a sight to behold.
Three Official Languages. You may already know that many Canadians speak both English and French and that some parts of the country are completely francophone. As of 2015, Punjabi has been added as the third official language.
Hockey is Important. Though not the official sport of Canada (that would be lacrosse), we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the importance of hockey in Canada. Almost every Canadian has a favourite hockey team and we can guarantee that everyone knows the Hockey Night in Canada theme.
Recognizable Locations. If you find yourself living in Toronto or Vancouver, you may find that some areas look quite familiar. That’s because a lot of television shows and movies are filmed here and passed off as locations in the United States. Notable mentions include most of the superhero shows on the CW, Catch Me If You Can, and Mean Girls.
