Moving to the US
Moving across border, or moving to the US is a complicated process. Without factoring in the distance one will likely need to travel, a completely different set of regulations await south of the border. Improperly, when moving to the US, labeled items, missing documentation or any other details can cause a massive hassle at the border. This is where Real Canadian Van Lines’ differentiated customer experience can come in handy as we can help walk you through the process of preparing documentation, as well as dealing with customs.
Plans for moving to the US should begin months in advance to ensure you take all the necessary preparatory measures needed for an easy transition across the border. Accurate labeling is essential, as well as making sure you and your family’s important documents, such as Social Insurance Numbers, birth certificates and, most importantly, passports are up to date.
Additionally, while moving between Canada and the U.S., you technically won’t need to be present when your goods are crossing the border. You will need, however, to enter into the U.S. and declare residency before your belongings can enter as well. Be sure to brush up on both countries policies of what can and can’t be taken across the border. Both Canada and the U.S. have detailed, specific regulations on this matter which should be studied up on before traveling through the border crossing.
This sounds like a handful, but Real Canadian Van Lines wants to work alongside you every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition from Canada to the U.S. Call us today at 1800-690-6914 or CONTACT US to discuss details of your cross border moving and get a free moving estimate.
