Moving is arduous. Sorting, organizing, and packing all your items is time-consuming. Hiring a moving company has its own set of details that need to be addressed. Then add a cross-border move between Canada and the U.S., or vice versa, and your head may be spinning!

Tips to Make Your Cross-Border Move Easier

Each country, whether Canada or the United States, has a specific set of rules to follow. Your transition will be much easier when you keep these tips in mind:

  1. Documentation Requirements:

    Make sure you have the proper documentation filled out and provide it to your moving company with time to spare. At Tippet Richardson, we have worked with customs agencies from both countries for over 90 years. We can guide you in obtaining and filling out the documentation, but it is your responsibility to ensure it is done promptly to avoid having your household items kept in storage.

  2. Take a Full Inventory of Your Possessions:

    It is vital to create a full inventory list of all the personal items you will be taking with you. Each country has their own rules but having a list will ease importation. We have handy PDFs to assist you when moving from Canada to the U.S. and from the S. to Canada.

  3. Hire an Established and Well-Known Moving Company:

    You do not have to handle all the tasks and stress of your move alone. Work with a moving company that understands the nuances of relocating across the border.
