Shipping from UK

This question is particularly aimed at people who have migrated from the UK. I am
planning to land in Canada next month. I have already contacted a few removal firms
to get cost estimates of sending my personal effects to Canada.

Could anybody tell me whether it would be wise to go for a door 2 door shipping or
whether it'd better to choose door 2 port shipping option. Is there any rule for new
settlers that states that the settler requires to clear his/her things at the port
(i.e., sea port) in person? Otherwise, for me, it'd be better to go for door 2 door
option..less hassle to start with!

Any suggestion on this is welcome...

Kindest regards,

Dew.

Absolutely go with door to door ... because you'd have to arrange to get it
from the port.

The default rule in Canada is that you must appear in person at a customs office to
clear your container into Canada. However, there has been a trial scheme running at
Vancouver and Toronto where the agent can normally process the clearance without your
physical presence.

I asked 9 different removal firms during that last week - 8 said I absolutely must
clear the container in person, only one actually knew about this waiver (PSS). I knew
the waiver existed as a friend of ours used it (PSS again) a few months ago.

Even so, I'd still get it sent door to door.

Hope this helps.

Mike

Pardon ????

There are two ways to do it ... the first is to do it yourself, the second is to have
a customs broker do it.

Either way, you need a bill of lading, and a list of your goods. When you land in
Canada you hand the list of goods and the BoL if you have it to the officers when
you land, as goods to follow. Then you take the BoL to either a broker or to a
customs office and have them clear your goods when you have notification from the
shipper that it has arrived in Canada. The cleared BoL goes to the shipper who'll
deliver it to you.

If you ship door to door, the goods are forwarded in bond from the port to a customs
bonded warehouse closer to your destination, and on receipt of the cleared BoL they
are delivered to you.

If you ship door to port, the goods are left in the port and you have to get the
cleared BoL to the port and get a shipper to deliver your stuff.

So I don't know what this waiver you're talking about is.

Here is the relevant except from the written documentation ...

"Canadian Customs have announced a relaxation to the above regulation [appearing in
person]. This is for a trial period only and you should check with us that the
temporary amendment is still in place at the time of your removal. The Customs forms
can be mailed to the owner after arrival in Canada, returned by the owner to our
agents who can then obtain clearance and in most cases will not require the owner
visiting Customs in person. This applies to Toronto and Vancouver only."
