Moving to Poland

Moving from Canada to Poland Illustration. Poland on Map

Poland is an unfairly underestimated country. Its rich history and recent development will not leave anyone indifferent. In the past 3 decades, Poland has become one of the fast-developing countries in Europe, thus attracting thousands of foreigners to stay in Poland for the long term.

After figuring out the immigration process and how to get a work permit to work in Poland, it is time to learn what you can and cannot bring along with you and how you can do it. Hiring a removal company is a great way to have a companion who will always be there to advise you.

Moving to Poland by Sea Freight

If you wonder what is the most affordable way to move to Poland, without s doubt, the answer is shipping your household goods via sea freight. Moving to Poland by sea freight is a secure and the most cost-effective method to ship overseas.

Depending on the volume of your cargo, choose one of the following container shipments:

Moving to Poland by Air Freight

Wish to move to Poland as soon as possible? Shipping household goods via Air freight is the fastest way to move to Poland from any part of the world.

Sea Freight
Air Freight
Sole Use Container

A sole use container, also called as FCL - Full container load is a container shipment that refers to a shipment that takes up the entire space of the container without having to share it with other goods. Hercules Moving Company provides the following container size options:

20 ft Container
40 ft Container
40 ft High-Cube

At times when you do not require an FCL, you can always ship your household goods using a shared container when moving to Poland. Here are the 2 methods how household goods can be moved to Poland:

Groupage Shipping

Moving companies use groupage shipping to gather multiple cargoes going to one area/location and later loading into one container. When shipping valuables using groupage, senders split the freight costs making it the cheapest way to move to Poland.

LCL shipping

Less than Container load, similar to groupage, is a shipping method allowing moving companies to combine multiple freight into one. In LCL shipment, your movers will craft a custom wooden crate for your cargo and later will pass it on to a freight forwarder to be moved to Poland.

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 Poland if you need your items quickly and with minimum wait time. Your cargo will arrive in Poland in a matter of days. Choose one of the following shipment sizes when moving to Poland:

What Clients say About Us

Anastasiya Mamayeva

These guys are amazing. They are fast and reliable. They are reasonably priced compared to other big companies. They moved 3br appt on a very short notice with no extra charge. All my furniture arrived in the same condition as before the move. I would definitely recommend them!

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.

Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!

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!

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!

Gentle Giant

We initially hire Hercules to move our piano, but after our bad experience with our previous mover we hire them for our 2nd move with our entire household content. They were efficient, helpful and most importantly stronger than over mover. They blanketed old furniture and disassembled and reassembled the furniture back in place. They were accommodating and had stair mats and cover on the floor so that we didn't have to do major clean up after the move. We really appreciated their patience in positioning our grand piano into the exact angle we needed in the room. I will recommend them. My elderly mother also hired them and they took care of her move as well. She really appreciated the hassle free experience.

These guys did a great job. Very professional, quick and also careful. They clearly knew what they were doing as I imagine moving a grand piano isn't the same as moving a couch.

These guys really did a great job. Newmarket movers did not skimp on wrapping everything properly and moving all my sensitive and expensive equipment carefully. Call them for a quote and you won't be disappointed.

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.

Have used Hercules Moving for 2 work related circumstances. Extremely professional, cautious and timely. I would have no hesitation to recommend this company to others. They are my go to company from now on.
