Packing your Items for Shipping to Canada
SS provides two packing options, the first being a full professional packing service or. if you prefer, you can self-pack with our “You Pack, We Ship” service.
Professional Packing Service
When you opt for our professional overseas packing service, a specialist team will arrive at your home on the day of your move to pack the required items in sturdy packing materials and moving boxes ready for sending to Canada. For furniture we offer a full export wrapping service so that they are well protected.
We can also provide custom made wooden crates and antique wrapping for delicate items.
Our packing teams create an inventory to ensure our customer is aware of every item that we will ship to Canada.
If you are only sending a small number of items in boxes or suitcases, you can opt to self-pack your belongings in the comfort of your own home. This “You Pack, We Ship” is an increasingly popular option.
We understand the importance of the safe handling and delivery of your goods to Canada, so we can still provide all moving boxes, tea cartons and packing materials such as bubble wrap when you self-pack.
Once you are ready, we’ll pick up your boxes and deliver them to your new home.
