Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. If I ship via Full Container Load, will the container come to my house?


The container can be delivered to your location in a flatbed truck if you choose door-to-door services. The truck will park outside your house (if there are no parking restrictions). There you can load your household goods into the container which will then be sealed.

Q2. Do I need to sign a contract with you if I choose your international moving services?


Signing a contract is important as it states the rate being offered, inclusions, exclusions, and terms and conditions of service.

Q3. What do I do if I have any questions or concerns regarding my shipment or your services?

Contact our 24/7 customer service.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your shipment or our services, get in touch with our customer care team at 416-747-9774. They are available 24/7 to address your queries.

Q4. Is air freight faster than ocean freight?


Air freight has two advantages over ocean freight: it’s faster and there is less handling of your goods. It is, however, more expensive than ocean freight.
