Can I pack my own goods when Shipping to Canada?
If you are sending items which have been packed by yourself “owner packed” then they will attract more stringent inspection by Customs on arrival in Canada.
Providing a detailed carton by carton inventory will assist Customs in inspecting your effects, and may avoid unnecessary delays.
It is advisable to have your goods packed by OSS if you are looking at sending larger consignments, to ensure the clearance process can be conducted with a minimum of fuss.
How do I move my car to Canada?
Shipping motor vehicles and motor bikes to Canada is possible provided Customs criteria are met.
This service is usually depot to depot, meaning the motor vehicle will be collected by you from our partners depot in Canada following customs clearance.
Customs may require evidence that the owner of the vehicle has lived abroad for 12 months or longer, so a copy of your passport with date stamp showing arrival in Canada, or copy of lease or rental agreement on in Canada would be sufficient.
Can I take my pet with me to Canada?
Your pet can be moved overseas to Canada, though it is recommended to send your pet through a registered pet transportation agent who will be able to contact all the relevant agencies in Canada. More information about relocating pets can be found in our moving links section of this website or speak to an OSS World Wide Move Consultant.
