Default Relocating to Vancouver from Ottawa - Shipping Companies?

Hi All,

I hope everyone is keeping safe and well during this pandemic.

I am soon relocating to Vancouver from Ottawa and would like to ship clothes in suitcases and household items in boxes. Is anyone able to recommend a good shipping company for my purpose?

Thank you in advance for your insight as always, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A.

Do you have furniture to ship, or just boxes and clothing - what kind of volume do you think you will have?

You could try one of the 'cube / pod' companies if you don't have furniture.. they bring the cube to you, you pack it and then they ship it across the country for you.

Hey Siouxie , thank you ever so much for your response and thoughts.

I will not have that much to send over.... probably 10 large suitcases with clothing items in them, possibly wardrobe boxes, and maybe 5 boxes of small household items, no large furniture pieces.

What do you think?
