You can count on McMinniman’s Moving & Storage to make your move to the United States as stress-free as possible. As a trusted affiliate of United Van Lines, we understand your responsibilities and documentation requirements when moving to another country. We will let you know what to expect at Canada/U.S. customs to ensure a successful move free of unnecessary delays and shipments held up at the border.
McMinniman’s Moving & Storage can provide you with the necessary customs forms and guide you on how to complete them. You will need to have updated passports, birth certificates, photo IDs and social insurance / security numbers for each family member.
It’s important to note that you don’t have to be present when your goods cross the border from Canada to the U.S. However, you have to enter the U.S. and declare your residency before your shipment can enter the U.S.
Keep in mind that there are specific regulations regarding the items you can and can’t import. If you have questions, please contact McMinniman’s Moving & Storage.
