Some shipping companies to Canada offer a one-size-fits-all plan, but our experts know that this doesn’t work! We provide a completely unique experience to every customer when shipping to Canada from the UK, but we employ this policy across all of our services.
We have three shipping methods to use when shipping stuff to Canada; sea freight, air freight and road freight. Each method – or a combination of – is beneficial to different customer requirements.
If you are looking for cheap shipping to Canada, sea freight is your go-to option! Sea freight’s economic costs make it the most popular method of transport among our customers. Your items are arranged onto a shared or sole-use shipping container, which is loaded onto our cargo ship to Canada for delivery.
Sea freight is the slowest of our transport methods and you can expect your items to arrive within weeks for the UK to Canada shipping. For example, the average delivery time for air freight is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to the estimated 6 to 8 weeks for sea freight, but this is reflected in the bargain cost of shipping to Canada.
Air freight to Canada is the most expensive of our transport methods; however, it is the quickest and sometimes the most convenient way to send goods to Canada. We pack your possessions onto a commercial air carrier ready for take-off to your chosen airport in Canada. Air freight is the best transportation to Canada method if you need your items sending in a hurry as your consignment will reach you in a matter of days. This timeliness does come with a much higher price tag than shipping to Canada using sea freight.
Road freight is our bonus method that cannot be used alone except for UK deliveries. Road freight is an accompaniment service for our sea and air freight deliveries. It is frequently used when a customer lives far away from our UK port or depots, or when customers require home delivery of their cargo in Canada.
Our services for shipping items to Canada are adjusted to suit your budget and time-frame, but there are three principal factors that will influence your overall shipping costs to Canada from the UK; load size, transport method and end destination in Canada.
If you are looking for cheap shipping to Canada, sea freight is the recommended method as shipping costs from the UK to Canada are primarily estimated based on the dimensions of your load.
By assessing your load via our online home survey, we can determine if you require LCL or FCL container shipping to Canada. If you choose Less Container Load, your items are loaded onto a shared shipping container alongside other Anglo Pacific customers’ and you will only be charged for space your goods consume within this container.
Alternatively, it might be more advantageous for you to use Full Container Load, this is the assignment of a 20ft or 40ft container for your sole use and you will be charged a set rate based on which size shipping container you use. This is advantageous for very large loads, such as office removals, a whole home load and car shipping to Canada.
If you send to Canada using air freight, expect to pay considerably more for this service as the bulk of your Canada shipping costs are calculated based on the WEIGHT of your items. With this being said, air freight is usually only used when a customer needs their items urgently and it is a small load, a box or two, or a suitcase, for example.
Another contributing factor to the cost of shipping to Canada is the distance that your goods are travelling and how they are delivered upon arrival in Canada.
Shipping parcels, suitcases and household goods to Canada is already a stressful process and we don’t want to aggravate this by sneaking in any extra costs.
As an advanced international shipping company to Canada, we have our customer’s best interests at heart, which is why we include all of the costs in our transparent and detailed quotes, ensuring you know exactly how much you are paying, what you are paying for, and the service you should receive when you choose Anglo to ship to Canada:
