Home  /  Moving Services  /  Moving With Containers

Looking for a stress-free moving or carefree storage option? If you are making a move of 700 miles (1126 kilometers) or more within Canada, you will have the choice of shipping your household goods by van or by container service. Moving by container offers a number of unique benefits, including flexible delivery options (either expedited or delayed delivery) that allow you to choose the delivery date that best suits your needs. Picture a container as an individual box for your household goods.

If you choose to move by container, an Exclusive Use Option is available that guarantees that your contents will be kept separate from other shipments in your own personal, ® container. Containers are also an excellent and affordable short-term storage solution (up to 90 days) if you are unable to move into your new home right away. Because your shipment is stored in the container it was initially loaded in, your belongings do not have to be unloaded into a warehouse and then re-loaded onto a van. This means there is less handling, which lessens the chance of accidental damage to your contents. There are four container sizes available: 8', 9', 12' and 20'.
