Moving to the USA from Canada - Customs

When moving to the US from Canada, there are some important customs procedures you should be aware of. First of all, you must submit a CBP Form 3299 - Declaration For Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles - to US Customs. This will allow the cross border mover to bring in duty-free personal items and household goods when you are moving to the US. It's important to note that all items must be declared; failure to do so may lead to penalties or delays.

On another hand, if you are moving back to Canada from the US - Canada Border Services Agency also needs to be informed of any goods arriving in Canada, including any gifts arriving from family and friends outside the country. The process is straightforward: simply fill out a Canadian Goods Declaration (Form B4) before crossing the border and present it upon arrival.

Despite that with HMC Van lines you will be guided step by step, keeping these customs procedures in mind will ensure a smooth transition when relocating from Canada to the United States!

Cross Border Moving Companies

When it comes to cross border moving from Canada to the USA, it's important to find the right cross border moving company for your needs. After all, moving across a border requires a certain expertise that not all moving companies have!

Fortunately, there are many options out there. But how do you know which one to choose? Here are some tips for choosing the right cross border mover:

  • Research and Read Reviews: Research different cross border moving companies and read reviews from past customers. This will give you an idea of the quality of service they offer and their level of professionalism.

  • Check How do the Mover Pack: When moving from Canada to the United States of America, the distance could be anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand miles. Due to that fact, the packing for cross border move plays a vital part. When checking the international moving company's reputation online, simply pay attention to how their trucks are loaded: What materials are used for protecting furniture, how good and consistent the truck is packed, how clean the interior of the trailer is, etc.

  • Get Multiple Quotes: Get quotes from multiple companies so that you can compare rates and services offered before making your final decision. Also pay attention to how the estimate is delivered to you. For example receiving an estimate from a cross-border mover via email (with no attachment, or client portal) is a significant red flag. Lastly, read the estimates very carefully as many movers employ hidden fees practices.

  • Consider Accessorial Services: Ask about extra services such as storage, packing, unpacking, disassembly/reassembly, customs clearance and more. If you need any of these services, make sure to ask potential cross border moving companies if they provide them, as well as what their costs are.

With these tips in mind, you should be able to find the perfect cross border moving company for your needs!

Tips and Tricks for a Cross Border Move

Getting ready to move from Canada to the USA can be intimidating, and making sure you have everything organized and planned in advance is key. Here are three tips and tricks to make your cross border move as smooth as possible:

Immigration Documents
Research the Destination Area
Finding Best Movers from Canada to US
Schedule a Pre-Move Inspection
Start Packing Early

Immigration Documents

Before you embark on your cross border move, make sure you have all the necessary immigration documents with you. This includes a valid passport, birth certificate, immigrant visa, work visa, driver's license, and any other paperwork that could prove that you are a legal resident of both countries.

Keep in mind that Canadian citizens have different requirements than permanent residents or individuals with non-canadian passports. Checking the required documents when moving to the USA can be done in a few simple steps. First, consult the official US Embassy in Canada website. Then you can check the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website for additional information on importing your household goods.

Not having the proper documents can cause delays or even cancellations in your move process - or worse!

Research the Destination Area

Before you make a cross border move, take some time to research the area you're moving to. Learn about local culture, customs regulations when bringing goods into the US, language differences, cost of living changes between Canada and America - there's a lot to consider!

Understanding these issues beforehand will ensure that your transition is smoother when it comes time for your Canada to US moving project.

Finding Best Movers from Canada to US

When it comes to making a cross border move, you'll want to choose a trusted company that specializes in international relocation. Do your research, read reviews, and make informed decisions on who you hire, as you will be entrusting them with your most precious possessions.

Moving companies should be properly licensed and insured, and should have a long-standing reputation for providing quality services.

Schedule a Pre-Move Inspection

Before you move, make sure to schedule a pre-move inspection. A reputable moving company should be able to provide an estimate after they've seen your home, and they should also be able to provide advice on the best way to pack and safely transport your Belongings.

At Hercules Moving Company we use the Ai Video Estimating tool - Yembo.ai, which helps to minimize the time needed for the estimate, inventory preparation and tracking.

Start Packing Early

If you're doing the packing yourself, start early and be thoroughly prepared. Packing is often the most time consuming part of any move, and it's important to make sure everything is appropriately labeled, secured and organized. Doing a few boxes at a time can help make the process less overwhelming so that you are ready to move when the day comes.

However, if you want to save time and stress, our cross border packers and movers will do the hefty packing for you. We will delicately pack all items in accordance with our high cross border packing standards. At the same time you can be rest assured that your items will be delivered in the same condition, without any damages.

What Clients say About Us

I was very happy with Hercules and the way they handled my piano move. After a mixup with the original moving company I hired to move a piano just before Christmas, I contacted Hercules. They were able to schedule me The following Tuesday. Unfortunately the Tuesday became Wednesday, due to an illness with one of the movers. George contacted me on Monday to let me know, rather than Tuesday morning, which I appreciated. The movers arrived within the timeframe I was given and moved the piano both efficiently and professionally. I definitely recommend them they are the best Burlington movers in Simcoe County.

Thank you very much, Hercules moving company for your hard work, great service and fast delivery. We greatly appreciate it and would recommend your services to anyone looking to move!

I am highly impressed by the moving company Hercules! A team of 3 men brought a piano up from the basement of my house, up 9 steps, then through a tight corner and up 3 more steps. The moment they stepped in my house, I noticed their professionalism. From preparation and organization to floor/stairs protection, team work and moving techniques, it was excellent. Not a scratch! I have very high standards, I'm actually fussy and not easily impressed, but today I was delighted to see exceptional work. I highly recommend Hercules Markham movers for any moving services!


I had to move my entire food operation in a day. With Edmonton movers quoted me quickly and showed up on site 2 days later ready to move. I was worried about all my expensive and sensitive machinery but they pulled it off safely and without issue. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended. Great company.

Joanne Peddle

The team at Hercules are amazing! I used them to move my 4 bedroom home and everything went very well. These guys are incredible, they never stopped and where so careful with everything. Thanks so much for making my move fantastic!!!!

Me and my husband had to relocate Becker piano, which I inherited from my grandmother, and since the piano was antique and pretty expensive, we couldn’t let just anybody to transport it. It’s so easy to damage a piano without the right equipment and technique. That’s why we took the advice of my friends and had chosen Hercules piano movers, as the company that inspires trust due to their experience. To our delight, a piano was transported on the same day without any problems or damages.

Discipleof Christ

The Hercules moving crew did an amazing, fantastic job in moving my mother's upright piano. The two brothers crew are incredibly strong, expedient, courteous, and professional. The company gave the best quote, the fastest appointment booking, and was the most polite when compared to all the other piano moving companies I called in Toronto and the GTA. I absolutely recommend this company for anyone who needs to have their piano and/or heavy objects moved.

The crew that came to move us were amazing! From their first step in the door they had to I mats down. =M Every thing was wrapped with care for all the corners and the feet. Their care of my baby grand was excellent. Both my husband and I would highly recommend them!

Donald Quan

Used Hercules for the first time for the move of my very expensive and rare C.Bechstein grand - I was so pleased with their service an demeanour at the baby coddling care they used in handling my pride and joy that I will be using them for all of my piano moves from here on. I highly recommend these Guelph movers. Donald Quan - award winning film composer.


Hercules was great to work with. They arrived on time, had a team of very competent and friendly guys who treated our possessions with respect, including our piano. They were quick in disassembling and wrapping our furniture and seemed to have a lot of experience with Ikea stuff (which we have a lot of). They worked hard and kept us within the budget. I highly recommend them.

Would highly recommend them! Hercules movers showed up and without any problems moved two industrial sewing machines from storage Toronto unit to my work space.

Homeowner Toronto

Outstanding small moves service. The company exceeded my high expectations! The moving crew members were friendly, efficient, proficient and caring, and worked as a cohesive team.

Pick up and delivery were done right on time. Very professional. They even cleaned the rear side of the piano for me. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for the professional and efficient work. I was surprised to see how much work went into protecting the vanity from damage. The 2 man team made the job so easy, maneuvering with ease up the curved staircase and around the tight corner into the washroom. Your professionalism, efficiency and care was much appreciated.
