Trans Canada Movers have provided professional moving services for over 20 years, including many moves to and from the United States and, in particular, California. Like so many of you, we have a soft spot for the Golden State. From its northern border with Oregon to its southern border with Mexico, it’s one big, beautiful place.
We get many calls asking if the moving service to all the great cities in the state of California is any different from the long-distance moving services we already provide. The answer is no, mostly. Our long distance movers to California maybe show up with an extra bounce in their step as they love making this trip. It’s a long drive from Canada, but it’s always interesting and frequently beautiful no matter how many times you do it.
That said, you can rest assured that our services are always the same top quality no matter where you are moving to—if it’s down the road, to another city in British Columbia, California, or anywhere in Canada or the rest of the United States.
If you are moving from Canada to a US state, there’s a lot more involved as there are documents needed to be prepared and filled, as well as customs declaration documents. All shipments of household goods and personal effects entering the United States must be registered to utilize Treasury Department Form No. 3299 (Declaration for Free Entry of Articles Not Accompanying a Resident or Non-Resident).
A supplemental declaration providing additional information about the contents of shipments is also required. Although Form No. 3299 is a simple form, it is the primary document that allows you to ship personal household possessions into the US duty-free. There will be delays at the border if the document is completed incorrectly or is incomplete. This is just one area where our cross-border expertise sets Trans Canada Movers apart from many movers.
When you first contact us to move your household to California, we get started by providing you with all the necessary information to get started on planning your move. Our move coordinator and expert team are there to help you so that when the time comes for you to relocate, all is correctly organized. A smooth, stress-free move is our goal so that when you arrive at your new destination, all of your belongings arrive safely and in the same state that they were picked up.
Once at your new home in California our moving professionals can unpack and place your items and belongings in their place if you choose to use this option. As with all services, you have the option to either pack yourself, or we can pack and unpack for you.
As we said, we do a lot of moving to California. Just some of the cities we have moved families and businesses to include:
We also provide storage services if you are planning a future move to California. Prefer to move your stuff and store it in California? We can arrange that, too, as we have facilities in the state to securely store your belongings while you plan your move.
