Moving to England from Canada

England offers a wide variety of life style, occupation and enjoyment options. Centuries of history are around every corner. The challenge moving there brings is navigating the settling in process.

Post BREXIT and COVID sees differences in managing the arrival of your possessions. Yes the ongoing dampness and rapid weather changes, that few Canadians are familiar with, are still a reality. Moving protocols are another matter. A transfer of residence form must be done before you start to move any personal property to the UK, if duty is to be avoided. Visa applications benefit from at least a three month before moving day head start. There is only two weeks to arrange for your vehicle. A shortage of dental workers looks to require their National Health Service next few years to correct, so getting dental work done before leaving Canada is a good idea.

Packing your possessions with an eye beyond just their movement between truck, train and sea is key. Customs inspection where unpacking and repacking are time consuming can add significant and often unexpected charges for storage and handling. Allowing for efficient removal and repack reduces that risk.
