Local Moving Services
We know the area.
We’ve been a part of the community for years, so we have experience and best practices when it comes to moves in and around the Peterborough area. Local moves are charged based on an hourly rate for a van and two or three professional movers, including travel time from our office to your home. Each move includes 200 furniture pads to protect your belongings, free wardrobe cartons for your hanging clothes, floor protectors, and specialized equipment to help your move go quickly and smoothly. For a free, no obligation estimate, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long Distance Moving Services

We’re with you, wherever you need to go.
Within Ontario, across Canada or around the world, we are here to ensure your move goes smoothly. Our Lindsay-Peterborough Movers & Storage Consultants can answer any questions you may have about the moving process, discuss shipment protection options , and provide you with a professional cost estimate based on the weight of your cargo and distance that must be travelled. If your new home isn’t immediately available, we can also arrange for the storage of your belongings in a warehouse or in shipping containers.

Long Distance Container Solutions
A fast, safe and secure moving and storage option for long distance moves
Making a move of 700 miles (1,126 kilometers) or more within Canada? You have the choice of shipping your household goods by either van or container service. If you choose to move by container, an Exclusive Use Option guarantees that your contents will be kept separate from other shipments in your own personal, 8', 9' or 12’ United Container. Choosing a container service offers a number of unique benefits, including flexible delivery options such as expedited or delayed delivery, based on your needs.
Containers are also an excellent and affordable short-term storage solution (up to 90 days) if you are unable to move into your new home right away. Because your shipment is stored in the container it was initially loaded in, this means less handling, reducing the chance of accidental damage to contents.
USA / Overseas Moving
Taking the stress out of a move to the United States
Moving to the United States requires a good understanding of your responsibilities, documentation requirements, and what to expect at Canada/U.S. Customs in order to avoid unnecessary delays and/or having your shipment held up at the border. Did you know that when you move from Canada to the U.S. it is not necessary for you to be present when your goods cross the border? You must, however, enter the U.S. and declare your residency before your shipment can be admitted. Both countries have specific regulations regarding the items you can or can't import and a list of items that are prohibited.
To help you achieve a successful move, your United Moving Consultant will not only provide you with all necessary Customs forms, but provide guidance on how to accurately complete them. Please take extra care to ensure that passports, birth certificates, photo IDs and social insurance/security numbers for each family member crossing the border are up to date.
