Long Distance Moving Overseas & International

International and overseas moving is typically much more complex than moving within Canada. Having successfully coordinated more than hundreds of international moves to more than 30 different countries, Bekins Moving & Storage is well-versed in the required procedures.

Our vast industry experience has allowed us to establish connections with other reputable international moving companies in most major areas of the world. Like us, many of them are affiliated with major van lines, which enables us to recommend them with confidence.

One of our primary goals is to make international moving a stress-free experience for our clients. We achieve this by:

  • Offering documentation preparation services
  • Reminding clients about admissible and non-admissible goods
  • Coordinating shipping times and destination services

Whether we transport your goods by air or by sea, we always ensure they’re wrapped, packed and/or crated appropriately for the journey (we go through a ton of packing tape!).

Moving with Containers

For long distance moving outside BC, we offer a container service that allows you to transport and temporarily store your items for the ultimate peace of mind and protection.

Our containers are:

  • Available in a range of sizes
  • Clean, secure, weatherproof and rodent-proof
  • Allow you to separate possessions and seal each container yourself
  • Convenient if you need short-term (30-90 day) storage

Third-party Services

Do you have a gas stove, a vintage Corvette or a high-end pool table you’re taking with you? We’ll arrange the assembly and disassembly of your most delicate and treasured items so you know they’re taken care of here and there.
