Truckload Shipping

At Metropolitan Movers, we cater to a diverse range of moving needs. Whether you’re relocating a full home, transporting a few select items, moving an office, or need special care for unique possessions, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a brief overview:

Less Than Truckload (LTL)

This option is suitable for those whose moving needs do not require a full truck. Your belongings will be consolidated with other shipments headed in the same approximate direction. LTL is a cost-effective choice for smaller moves or when you’re flexible with your delivery timeline.

Palletized:

When your move mainly consists of boxes or a few items only, palletized shipping offers an efficient solution. This method is excellent for small partial moves or for “snowbirds” moving seasonally. Your items will be securely packed onto pallets, making it easier to handle and transport your belongings safely.

Air Freight

For clients who need their cargo delivered urgently, air freight is the fastest shipping method. Although it may come at a higher cost, it’s the best option for time-sensitive moves, ensuring that your belongings arrive at your new destination as quickly as possible.

Customs Clearance For Canada to US Moving

Customs clearance is vital for seamless cross-border moves. At Metropolitan Movers, we’ll assist you every step of the way when moving between Canada and the USA. Here’s what you should know:

  • BP Form 3299 “Declaration For Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles”: If you’re not personally transporting your goods, this form must be completed to declare your unaccompanied items. Your packing list will serve as the full inventory and must be available to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) upon request.

  • Notarized Letter of Authorization: In cases where someone else is transporting your goods, a notarized letter authorizing them to import goods on your behalf is necessary.

  • Proving Usage: Household effects used abroad for not less than one year, by a family member residing with you, may qualify for duty-free entry, regardless of ownership at the time of use. To take advantage of this, proof of overseas use for one year to the satisfaction of the port director is required.

    Timeframe for Duty-Free Entry: Your household goods and personal effects should not be imported more than 10 years after your last arrival from the country where the goods were used. Exceptions apply if you can provide a satisfactory explanation for the delay to the Port Director. After 25 years, duty-free import is not possible.

  • Personal Effects: Items like apparel, jewelry, and photographic equipment, classified as personal effects, cannot be entered as household effects and are subject to inspection by CBP officers.
    Snowbirds: Canadians living in the U.S. for part of the year must also submit a CBP Form 3299 for importing unaccompanied household effects. No form is required if traveling with your goods, but a detailed manifest is necessary.

At Metropolitan Movers, we ensure that all necessary documentation and procedures are meticulously followed, providing a hassle-free customs clearance experience. Our expertise in the customs process, combined with our dedication to your move’s success, makes us the ideal partner for your cross-border relocation.
