Default Moving to Toronto, Canada

Hi there,

My husband and I will be moving to Toronto Canada in April.

I'm a Canadian (from Toronto) and he is British.

We are planning on taking all our furniture i.e. having everything shipped over from here. Wondering if there is a good international moving company anyone could recommend and if there is anything we should be aware of with the movers i.e. any hidden costs etc.

I am also wondering if our linen i.e. bedsheets, pillow cases etc. would fit Canadian mattresses.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks!

Hi, and welcome to BE and congrats on getting your husband's PR!

There are loads of threads on shippers on the Canada forum, so a quick search should give you lots of info.

Hope to see you in the Canada forums soon, good luck with the move.

Welcome to BE! Here's a thread on how to go about getting a quote for shipping which I hope will be helpful? http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=800081
