Moving from Belgium to Quebec: what you need to know

Québec flagIt’s decided, you are leaving to settle on the other side of the Atlantic. However, when you are moving from Belgium to a North American country, you don't want to leave anything to chance! This kind of international move requires preparation! It is especially important to plan your budgets, and consider how to transport your goods, and their storage once they have arrived in Quebec… To save you all the stress that accompanies these tasks, it's better to  entrust your project to relocation professionals based in Belgium .

First of all, you need to precisely determine the volume to be transported and the distance between Belgium and your destination country, in this case Canada, in order to draw up an approximate budget. Then be sure to contact several different service providers to request a detailed quote (packing, unpacking, reassembly of furniture, transport, etc.).

Transport by air or by sea for your move from Belgium to Quebec?

To transport your property from Belgium to Quebec, there are two possible solutions: by aeroplane or by boat.

The boat is the cheapest solution for moving your property to Quebec. That is the solution that is especially favoured for very heavy equipment. Thanks to the use of containers, large quantities of personal effects can be transported by boat at a relatively affordable cost.

On the other hand, if you opt for transport by air, you should keep in mind that it is the fastest means of transport... But it is also the one that will take the biggest bite out of your budget. You can transport almost anything by air, except for products considered to be hazardous. The initial costs of this operation are higher than for maritime transport, and can quickly add up… 

On top of all of these costs, you will have to add insurance, and various customs duties. Also, don't forget to obtain the necessary documents for moving to Quebec, such as a certificate of change of residence, proof of settlement in the host country, and even an inventory of everything you transport.
