Do I need a delivery address before it arrives?
Upon arrival in Canada either as an immigrant or returning citizen you must report to Canadian Immigration that there are goods to follow to obtain the B54E declaration form, I.e., Shipments must be declared to Customs at the port of entry (POE) (airport/U.S-Canada border). Customs will then issue documents needed for Customs clearance:
BSF186 personal effects accounting document
BSF715 casual goods accounting document.
The owner of the goods must present a list of items to be imported. It is recommended that a copy of the packing list / inventory be hand carried for presentation to Customs. Customs may request a value on the shipment (returning citizens).
Customs Clearance Procedure once consignment has arrived at port, is that you the client (owner of the shipment) are required to report in person to custom house to clear the shipment (normally a representative from our office in Canada will advise beforehand and meet you at the customs office). Shipments destined for areas/cities outside the main port of entry cities will be moved under bond to the closest bonded facility to the consignee’s delivery address so that you the client can clear at a local customs office.
Please note as the client you must have residence status in Canada in order for the shipment to clear.
Insurance is an important consideration in any relocation. If you are packing the baggage shipment yourself, we would be able to offer you a total loss policy, if we are professional packing your consignment for you, then we can provide an all-risks marine transit insurance policy. A transit
proposal form will be provided with all our quotation extended. We advise you to read the information carefully; if there any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask.
