If you are relocating to Canada from another country, it’s important to hire a mover that you can trust. Once you obtain a list of movers that have been recommended to you, perform simple background checks online. There are many consumer advocacy sites that can provide you with information about prior lawsuits and customer complaints against moving companies.

With your new list of pre-screened movers, call each company and ask for an estimate. An honest moving company should be able to give you a detailed quote with a signature. Because long-distance moves can be expensive, you don’t want to have any surprise charges pop up. In the article “12 Steps To Hiring A Mover” from Real Simple, you can find more helpful advice for planning your relocation to Canada.
