If you’re looking for a removal service to or from Canada, choose Matthew James. As the experts in International removals to Canada, you are in safe hands.
From full relocations to Canada to shared loads, baggage and even single items; let Matthew James take the stress out of your removals.
A part/shared load service is a cost effective way to move your goods to and from your destination. The reason this service is so cost effective is that you share the vehicle with other consignments and therefore the vehicle costs are also shared. All consignments are individually prepared, numbered, labelled and inventoried to ensure all items are correctly delivered to you. The main advantage of a part load service is that you will receive the Matthew James service of excellence at the most cost effective price.
A direct service combines Matthew James’ service of excellence with the added advantage of a dedicated collection date and express delivery timescale. Handling of your effects is minimised as they remain on the same vehicle throughout. Although your delivery will be carried out in conjunction with other clients’ consignments, this means you will share the cost of the vehicle and your consignment will be prioritised for onward delivery typically within 7-10 days of collection.
A dedicated service gives you the flexibility to choose your collection and delivery dates. This service means you will have exclusive use of one of our bespoke removal vehicles. This service guarantees the Matthew James service of excellence and peace of mind that your moving dates can be fixed, allowing you the convenience to make travel arrangements and plan your arrival. All delivery dates are subject to EU laws on driving time. We can confirm the timing prior to any booking.

Shipping abroad can be complex with each country’s customs requirements and local regulations being different. The precise cost for shipping or air freight will depend on the exact size (and sometimes the weight) of your consignment.
We recommend air freight if you require your effects promptly. If you wish to ship most or all of your household effects we recommend the use of a dedicated container for your house removal to Canada.
For smaller shipments to Canada, we recommend our part load (groupage) service as the most practical and cost effective option. The exact price will depend on the cubic capacity, container size, and service required. Part loads will be returned to our warehouse for consolidation and loading. Full load containers can be loaded directly at your home if the access allows.
Our export packing service provides a detailed inventory for customs and is suitable for use with ‘all risk’ marine insurance cover.

Canada is one of the largest countries in the world, covering nearly 10 million square kilometres. Despite its vast size, most of its 35 million inhabitants are concentrated in cities located within 200km of the US border. It is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories that stretch from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward to the Arctic. Canada’s capital city is Ottawa but it is actually only the fourth largest metropolitan area in Canada – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver being the largest cities, respectively.
As well as its indigenous first nation origins, Canada has also been shaped by its European heritage. Since the first British and French settlers in the 17th century, Canada has been a very popular relocation destination for many European expats. It still maintains these close ties with Europe and, being a member of the British Commonwealth, is especially close with the UK. Canada’s modern and advanced economy allows it to welcome more immigrants per capita than any other country in the western world. The similarities in Canada and the UK’s culture, history and language make it even more straightforward for expats from the UK to start a new life in Canada.
Canada has two official languages – English and French. It is also one of the most racially diverse and multicultural countries in the world, the result of decades of proactive immigration policies. Like the UK, Canada has four seasons with cold and often long winters, as well as warm summers.
A valid passport is required for entry into Canada. The UK and Canada do not have reciprocal health care agreements so it is very important that you get comprehensive medical and travel insurance before arriving. If travelling to Canada by air you are now required to obtain an electronic travel authorisation (eTA). For more information on the eTA system, visas, driving licenses and other administrative issues visit the official Canadian government website.
