Tailored options for shipping to Canada

We understand that no move is the same. Therefore we tailor options dependent on what furniture and possessions you have, with regular sailings to all major ports including Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal and Halifax.

  • Sole-use container: A shipping container will be provided exclusively for your belongings, which means that you won’t share with anyone else. This enables us to provide you with a fixed sailing date. 20-foot or 40-foot containers are available, so if you have a lot of household items or wish to include your car or motorbike we have it covered.
  • Shared container: A great option if you’re moving only some of your household effects. Your belongings will be consolidated to ensure you only pay for the space your items occupy in the container. This is a very economical option for smaller consignments, part-house lots, and people on a budget.
  • Air freight: If you need your items urgently, air freight is your first choice.

Marine transit insurance

Protecting your possessions has never been easier with New Zealand Van Lines. Choose the option that’s right for you from our range of comprehensive transit insurance options, and rest easy in the knowledge that your household goods are covered. Our comprehensive cover is under written by Vero.

Secure storage

Should you require storage before or after your goods leave NZ, New Zealand Van Lines has secure and affordable options in New Zealand or Canada. Please ask your moving consultant for rates and options.

FIDI accredited Canadian partner

When your consignment arrives in Canada our fellow FIDI accredited partner will collect it from the port, customs and quarantine clear it and deliver it to your residence.
