Understanding your responsibilities, documentation requirements and what to expect at Canada/U.S. Customs is the key to a successful move, avoiding unnecessary delays and/or having your shipment being held up at the border. Your Redpath Relocations Consultant will provide you with all of the necessary Customs forms and guide you to complete them. Please take extra care to ensure that passports, birth certificates, photo ID and social insurance/security numbers for each family member crossing the border are up to date.
Did you know that when you move from Canada to the U.S. it is not necessary for you to be present when your goods cross the border? You must, however, enter the U.S. and declare your residency before your shipment can cross into the U.S. border. Both countries have specific regulations regarding the items you can or can’t import and a list of items that are prohibited.
