Why Choose Anglo Pacific for International Package Shipping

Make Your Journey Simple

Carrying extra boxes or suitcases onto a long haul flight is nothing but inconvenient. Luggage is heavy, awkward to carry and it means spending a lot of time at baggage drop-off desks or luggage carousels when you could be chilling in Canada. Shipping boxes to Canada with Anglo means eliminating stress, frustration and time wasting!

Most airlines charge on an excessive price on a per-kilogram basis. This means the cost of sending a full suitcase of personal or household items can sometimes equal hundreds of pounds. Anglo Pacific’s economical services for sending boxes to Canada are here to change that.

Canada has its own specified list of restricted and prohibited items that you cannot ship, or that require pre-approval. But if Canada allows it, we can send it!

We offer a full packing service if you require. We wrap all of your items and pack them into robust boxes for shipping to Canada to ensure they are protected on the long journey to Canada. We also create a full inventory so you know exactly what you are sending to Canada and what should arrive at your end location.

We understand that some customers would prefer to pack their own UK to Canada shipping boxes, but your goods still need full protection in transit. Therefore, even if you self-pack, we supply all of the necessary packing materials, tea cartons and moving boxes.

Here are some tips and tricks to self-pack your shipping boxes to Canada like a pro:

PACK IN ADVANCE

You can never be too prepared when moving to Canada. If you start packing your belongings early, you are less likely to forget anything important while eliminating any feelings of being ‘rushed’. When possible, you should start packing 6 to 8 weeks beforehand, then you can pack room-by-room at a steady pace.

DECLUTTER!

Do you need to take the pair of shoes that you haven’t worn in six years? Or that artwork you forgot you ever had? These are the questions to ask when sending boxes to Canada from the UK. Only taking items that you NEED or those that have great sentimental value will not only make the process easier but also keep box shipping costs to Canada as cheap as possible.

WRAP YOUR FRAGILE ITEMS

To reduce the chance of damage when you send a package to Canada, you must thoroughly wrap any fragile or precious items including glassware, china, mirrors, crockery, artwork and the likes. You should consider using a combination of packing materials such as bubble wrap, corrugated card, tissue paper and packing foam when you send a box to Canada from the UK.

USE THE CORRECT SIZE OF MOVING BOX

If you use a moving box that is too big or too small, you increase the risk of damage. Your moving boxes should always have a bit of space inside of them, but this should be sufficiently filled with packing foam to cushion the contents of the shipping box to Canada.

CLEARLY LABEL TEA CARTONS

When you ship boxes to Canada, they must be clearly labelled for a number of reasons. Firstly, it makes unpacking easier if you have labelled which room each box belongs in, but also for safe the delivery of your items. Label all moving boxes with your name, contact details and your new address, that way if they are misplaced, they can be easily forwarded on or you can be contacted to arrange delivery.

CREATE YOUR INVENTORY

Creating an inventory is advised so that you know exactly what you have packed, what should have arrived and to easily distinguish what – if anything – is missing upon arrival in Canada.

PACK A SURVIVAL / ESSENTIALS BOX

We highly suggest packing a box of essentials that you can keep on your persons so that when you arrive in your new, empty home in Canada, you will have easy access to necessities. This can be household or personal items, for example, toilet paper, kettle, toaster, box cutter, medicine, toothpaste and toothbrush etc.

Our costs of sending boxes to Canada are always fair and in accordance with your specific moving requirements and load. Unlike some international box shipping companies, we don’t charge based on weight per kilogram, we focus on three main factors; quantity of boxes, shipping method and end destination.

The main impact on how much to send a package to Canada from the UK is the number of boxes and the sizes of these boxes. We pack all items into appropriately sized moving boxes and assess the quantity boxes; each size variant of moving box has its own fixed price.

The shipping method is also taken into consideration when calculating our quotes. The most popular and cheapest way to send a package to Canada is via sea freight. Your boxes are loaded onto a shared or sole-use shipping container to Canada; shared shipping container is the most cost-effective and ideal for anything less than small homes load.

If you need to send a box to Canada in a hurry, you can inquire about our air freight boxes to Canada service. However, this speedy service comes with much higher Canada shipping costs and is only recommended in urgent cases and for one or two moving boxes. Sea freight has an average delivery time of 6 to 8 weeks, whereas air freight’s average delivery time is 7 to 10 days.

Your end destination might also influence your overall costs of shipping boxes to Canada, the further that your boxes are being sent, the more it will costs.

Your shipping coordinator will provide a fully detailed, no-obligation online quote before you agree to our shipping services, to ensure you are happy with the costings and to see where your money is going.

We have a variety of purpose made moving boxes and tea cartons for shipping a package to Canada, all of different shapes and dimensions to accommodate any personal or household items you want to ship to Canada. Whether you need your shipping boxes large or small, flat or cubed, there options to suit all items.
