Moving to Malta

Moving from Canada to Malta Illustration. Valetta Marina

For those whose heart demands a change, and the problem is not solved by rearranging the furniture, it is worth considering a rather bold solution, for example, moving to Malta! Malta is a gem of the mediterranean sea, a unique combination of multiple cultures that fascinates from the moment you land.

The Maltese lead a relaxed lifestyle, perfect for those, looking to retire in Europe. The maritime climate and plenty of sunshine positively affect health and reduce stress levels. Life on the island is balanced and unhurried, moving to Malta is a fantasy that can become your reality tomorrow.

If you have already made up your mind and are ready to move to Malta, here are some of the important relocation tips and facets to consider.

Moving to Malta by Sea Freight

The most affordable way to move to Malta is via Sea Freight. Whether you would want to relocate some of your possessions or all of your household goods, you can choose one of the following shipment types when moving to Malta:

Moving to Malta by Air Freight

The fastest way to move to Malta is via Air Freight. Whether it is urgently needed items or simply valuable or some additional freight, it will be shipped to Malta in a matter of a few days.

Sea Freight
Air Freight
Sole Use Container
Shared Container

The sole use container shipping method, additionally known as Full Container Load ( FCL) refers to a purchase of the whole shipping container for the overseas move. There are multiple different container sizes available when moving to Malta with Hercules Moving Company:

20 ft Container
40 ft Container
40 ft High-Cube

If you do not require a full container when moving to Malta, you can choose to relocate your household goods in shared containers. Here are two ways to move to Malta using the shared container shipping method:

Groupage Shipping

Shipping in groupage refers to numerous freights from different owners gathered by one moving company to be shipped to one area/location. It is the cheapest way to relocate household goods when moving to Malta as all the shipping fees and charges are divided between all senders.

LCL shipping

Similar to groupage, in a Less than Container (LCL) load your valuables will be shipped in a shared container. However, in this case, the international moving company will make a custom wooden crate for items and hand it over to a freight forwarder to be combined with other similar cargo moving to Malta.

Sole Use Container

It is known that the fastest way to move from one place to another is by plane. Therefore, shipping your household goods by air freight is a convenient way to move to Malta if you need your items quickly and with minimum wait time. Your cargo will arrive in Malta in a matter of days. Choose one of the following shipment sizes when moving to Malta:

20 ft Container

What Clients say About Us

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.

You guys were totally amzing, I had hired two other piano movers prior and both companies had difficulties moving the piano. But your crew had no difficulties. They were very carful, fast clean and so nice to talk too. I did post pictures on Face Book and people wanted your number from me. I will highly recommend you GREAT JOB.Thank You

If you still in doubt of what piano movers in Toronto to choose - hope you read my review :) Hercules Movers did an excellent job of relocating a grand piano from a music school to my house and additionally advised me a professional piano tuner. Extra care service, friendly and skilled movers, which were extremely accurate and protected the piano as well as floors, walls and stairs.

The guys over at Hercules Moving Company came highly recommended and they did not disappoint!Their meticulous attention to detail in wrapping every piece of furniture did not come at the cost of time, they were still highly efficient and very hard working. Managment were very friendly and made the whole moving experience stress free.The next time I move I will definitely be choosing Hercules Moving Company and so should you!!

I used Hercules Moving to move a piano from my basement to a purchaser. They were very professional, packaged the piano carefully, put down mats on flooring and removed it very efficiently. I'd recommend these guys for any moving needs for sure!!

Esther Katz

The Barrie movers arrived on time and impressed me with their friendly and polite demeanour. They completed the move professionally, taking care to pack and protect each of the items to be moved. I was very pleased with the job that was done. I would heartily recommend them for everyone in Ontario.

A++++++++. Hercules Moving is the only company I would ever hire for small moves if I had to move again. The crew was amazingly fast, professional, and very careful with our stuff. They wrapped all the furniture with pads and plastic wrap making it very difficult to scratch. Not only to mention the excellent customer service they provided all along. Hercules is simply the best!

The Hercules moving team conducted themselves in a very professional manner. Upon their arrival they were quick to introduce themselves. My piano was carefully wrapped before moving it. Once at its destination the moving team decided on the best way to move my piano into its new home. They laid mats along their route to protect my flooring. They had to move some furniture out of their way. Throughout the entire process of moving the piano they were very careful with the piano and my home. They recommended putting some coasters (which they had on hand) under the wheels of the piano to protect my flooring before taking it off of their mats. After unwrapping and disposing of all of the wrap they made sure I was happy with the placement of the piano before considering their job complete. Even took the time to move back all of the items they moved out of their way, no matter how small. Overall I was very happy with my experience with Hercules Moving Company. I highly recommend them.
