What Is a Long-Distance Move?

A long-distance move involves individuals, families or businesses relocating to a new province or territory within Canada. A long-distance move differs from local or intrastate moves in that local moves are typically within the same city, while intrastate moves remain in the same province. 

At northAmerican, we’re Canada’s experts in all three relocation types. No matter how far you’re going, we’ll help you create a custom plan that meets the unique needs of your move. 

Long-Distance Moving Types

Every long-distance move is different. Waving goodbye to Canada to make the United States your new home? Moving from British Columbia to Quebec? No matter your destination, all moves have unique requirements that don’t match a one-size-fits-all template. 

Our long-distance movers can provide the peace of mind to tackle the challenges of long-distance moving. Whether you're moving your business into a new office or you need additional assistance with the complexities of moving across the border, we're ready to assist you.

What services are available for a long-distance move?

North American Van Lines offers a variety of services that can be included in a long-distance move, including packing and unpacking, loading and unloading, storage solutions and auto shipping. Ask your relocation specialist to help you create a personalized moving plan for your needs and budget.

What is the best time of year to move long-distance?

The best time of year to move long-distance depends on several factors, such as the weather, availability of moving services and your budget. Spring and fall are the most popular times for long-distance moves due to milder temperatures and fewer crowds.

How many movers will I need?

The number of movers you need will depend on the size and weight of your belongings. Generally, a two-bedroom home will require at least three movers, while a four-bedroom home may require five or more. If you have large items, such as pianos or pool tables, you may need additional help.

What is the cheapest way to do a long-distance move?

While taking the DIY approach to long-distance moving may seem like the cheapest option, that's not always the case. While tackling a long-distance move on your own saves the cost of professional movers, you'll be responsible for packing, loading, transporting and unpacking your belongings on your own.

How long will it take for my items to arrive?

The duration of your shipment depends on the distance of the move and the long-distance movers you work with. At North American Van Lines, we strive to deliver your items within 10–14 days—the average time to complete a long-distance move. It's important to note that weather and traffic can always cause delays. 

How do I hire movers?

Once you decide to work with movers for your upcoming relocation, you'll want to start by requesting quotes and estimates from at least 2–3 moving companies for long-distance relocation. Take some time to compare prices and services to ensure you work with the best company for your relocation. 

You'll also want to ask about experience, licensing and insurance coverage. Also, read online reviews and testimonials to ensure you select the best possible partner for your relocation.
