Move Across The Border With Augusta Movers

While moving on its own can already be quite the complicated endeavour, moving across the country can be even more complex. With all of the info and documentation you need to have filled and prepped, the last thing you’ll likely want to focus your attention on is the hard labour that goes into moving your stuff out of your old home and into your new one. 

Luckily, with the help of services such as ours here at Augusta Movers, we can offer reliable, professional cross-border, long distance moving services so you can make this whole process a little simpler. Below, we would like to explain some of the complexities that go into moving from Canada to the US & vice versa. 

Moving From Canada to The USA 

When one decides to move from Canada to the US, this move comes with its own set of challenges. Certain rules must be followed, and things such as a VISA sponsorship are needed to be able to move into the country with no issues. Luckily, with the help of our team here at Augusta Movers, we have all the necessary knowledge to ensure that you have everything you need for when you move from one country to the other, and specifically from Canada to the US.  

It is also important to note that certain import requirements will have to be met when you decide to move your things from Canada to the US. In general, you should always have an itemized inventory of every item you are moving so that you can let country officials know that you do not have any prohibited items that break certain import rules. Certain items such as meat or vegetable items, imitation designer garments made in Cuba or Iran are all prohibited to bring into the US. When in doubt and unsure about what you can and cannot bring, always talk to a cross-country moving specialist and do some online research to make sure you’re not trying to bring anything over that isn’t allowed. 

Tips for Cross-Border Moves 

While making sure you choose the right professionals is important, there are certain things that you can look out for to ensure your move goes by with ease. Just a few of these many tips include: 

  • Making sure you are eligible to move before arranging any moving details. Since VISA applications tend to get delayed, always be sure this stuff is completed fully before getting into the serious steps of the moving process. 
  • Try to get rid of items that you do not need to move over the border. The more you have to move, the more expensive your move will be. Pick the important items and donate/throw away the rest accordingly. 
  • Always hire movers that specialize in cross-border moving services. This way, they can advise you on import paperwork and rules/regulations you would otherwise be unaware of. 
  • Purchase a prepaid mobile phone so you can keep in touch with any family and friends while you are settling into your new home. 
  • Always be sure that your health insurance is properly set up in advance. Whether you are moving from Canada to the US or vice versa, you will need health insurance in the chance that any health risks/emergencies come to light during this process or soon after.
