Warnings Issued to Expats Planning to Move to Canada

London, England –

PSS International Removals, a London based overseas relocation company, warns customers of key issues that they need to be aware of before moving to Canada. This comes in response to an increase in British expats moving to Canada from the UK. The list of things to know includes finding work and suitable accommodation as well as budgeting prior to the move. The other key point is the importance of using a specialist removals to Canada company to transport furniture from the UK.

Canada is a great place to live, however, there are many things that need to be sorted out for a stress-free experience. One of the most important steps is finding work or having sufficient funds saved up. Finding work in Canada should not be difficult as there is an abundance of jobs in different industries. There are also many immigrant-serving organisations that can help with writing resumes and job search training. Those looking to work in Canada can find work by going to the companies’ websites and contacting them to ask if they are hiring. Alternatively, those looking for work in Canada can go on job search websites and see what jobs are available.

After finding work, accommodation would be the next step in moving to Canada. This can be found by looking at newspapers or property websites. The accommodation will need to tick boxes such as affordability and being close to employment. The next step in the process is deciding whether to use a removal company. Often it will be cheaper to use a removal company to ship personal belongings, as opposed to buying new items when arriving in Canada.

Planning ahead is important in the removal process. It is recommended to start obtaining quotes at least 3 to 6 months before moving. This will allow sufficient time to plan a budget for the move to Canada, complete paperwork and organise a home survey. Many will be tempted to select the cheapest removal company, however, this is not the best strategy for moving. The focus should be on finding an experienced international removal, such as PSS International Removals, to mitigate the risk of damage. Price is an important factor, but it should not be the only factor that is considered when moving.

During the removals process, it is also worth looking out for companies that are internationally accredited. This is a good indication as companies must maintain high standards to be part of the membership. For instance, to become a member of the British Association of Removers (BAR), the removal company must prove they can meet the strict standards in the BAR code of practice.

Liam Witham, CEO of PSS International Removals, says, “If you are looking to send your furniture to Canada from the UK, PSS have years of experience and the network to make it happen. We understand that the process of moving from the UK may seem stressful, however, when you select a removal company that helps thousands of customers move each year, the process will feel straightforward. We provide assistance throughout the whole process including a dedicated move manager and help with customs clearance. Our other services include a free home survey and an export standard packing and wrap service to ensure your personal belongings arrive safely.”

PSS provide a removal service to any location in Canada including Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Quebec. The company also provide other services such as car shipping to Canada and transporting belongings either by air freight or sea freight. Sea freight is recommended as the most economical service to Canada, whereas sea freight is used by customers looking for the quickest way to move their personal belongings. They have a lot of positive feedback and international removal reviews from satisfied customers.

Canada is a popular destination for British expats, and with proper planning, it should be a fairly stress-free experience.
