Exclusive Shipping Containers to Canada
When moving to Canada, most people use an exclusive 20 or 40 foot shipping container to move their entire home. At TFM, we will send our own staff to pack and export wrap your belongings – we will never use subcontractors.
We will your goods into a container, which will then be sealed, and complete a full numbered inventory. Your container will be loaded onto a ship, and we will give you a specific arrival date. Our agent will deal with customs and immigration procedures and give you a date of delivery to your new home.
When sending your household goods to Canada, we can securely load your car in the same container for you, ready to collect from our agent at the port. Please give us a call on 0800 907 8484 to arrange for an estimator to visit you to discuss your move and give you a written quotation for door-to-door delivery. Our quotation will be detailed and include all charges, and we offer comprehensive insurance.
We can also store your goods before shipping if required. If you think you’ll need storage, UK storage will work out cheaper than storage in Canada.Frequently Asked Questions
Small Consignments in Groupage Containers to All Areas of Canada
The TFM team has been shipping our customers’ possessions for many years and have successfully moved a vast number of customers’ items to Canada using our groupage process. Our groupage service means we can send small amounts of furniture or boxes in a groupage container with shipments from other customers.
We ship groupage containers to all major Canadian ports, from Montreal and Toronto to Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Halifax. Our team will give you a quote in writing based on a list of shipped items supplied by you, or you will be visited by a member of the team who will estimate depending on your requirements. We will also pack and wrap any of your goods should you wish us to.
TFM can offer comprehensive insurance to cover all of your goods, including a full numbered inventory of the goods you ship, and our agent will contact you when your goods are ready for delivery.
How groupage to Canada works
For each worldwide destination that we ship to, there are already containers waiting to be filled on the ground. TFM and other businesses like us bring in shipments and the cargo is carefully loaded directly into the container that it is going to be shipped to its destination in. Once the container is filled, it is loaded onto transport and shipped to its destination. It will then be emptied and sorted by our partners overseas and arranged to be delivered to your destination. In return, an empty container replaces the full one and the process is repeated.
How long does groupage to Canada take?
This depends on the demand that there is to ship things to your destination at the time. It also depends on how often containers are shipped to your destination and how long the agents take to have the goods released to them. The TFM team will always give you the best estimation of time, however this is subject to change as there are many elements out of TFM’s control.
