Long Distance Moving Containers Canada
Moving can be a difficult ordeal when you’re moving to another neighbourhood in your city. But when you’re planning to relocate to another community or another province, the planning phase can quickly become convoluted.
Possession dates can be hard to coordinate when you’re not in town. And sometimes you want to work these things out in person. When you’re transporting your belongings with moving containers, you can have the flexibility you need.
Here are some of the additional perks that you can enjoy with our moving container solutions:
1. We Can Handle Small Shipments
Whether you’re a business or an individual, we understand that long-distance relocations come in all shapes and sizes. Some people have lots of property to transport and others are more minimalist. Our moving containers allow for the transportation and storage of smaller shipments. If you’ve got property that you would like to ship, our moving containers can accommodate you.
2. We Have a Top-Notch Warehouse Facility
In many cases, the risk of using a moving container is that your property could be one heatwave or mouse infestation away from being permanently damaged for good. At Atlas Van Lines, we keep our warehouses clean, temperature-regulated, and free from pests. In many ways, protecting your property is our top priority.
3. We Have a Tracking System
After a long trip, the last thing you want to hear from your movers is that your belongings were lost in transit. For these reasons and more, our moving containers are logged into our internal tracking system. This way, we’ll always know where your property is – and we’ll be able to deliver it to you in a timely fashion.

Moving Containers Cost in Canada
Simply because the circumstances and logistics of moves can be different, the cost of renting a moving container can vary widely. Some of the factors that could affect your final cost include:
- The total weight of your belongings;
- The distance between your current location and your final designation; and
- The length of time that you think you’ll have to leave your items in storage for
All of that being said, you can expect your moving container to cost anywhere from three to four figures.

We Take Care
All Atlas movers’ warehouses are clean, modern, climate-controlled facilities that are specifically designed for maximum safety. These warehouses are government approved, heated, pest-controlled and have modern security systems.
Your possessions will be carefully wrapped in protective moving blankets and placed inside clean, wooden, dust-free storage vaults. Your name and the number of storage vaults assigned to your shipment will be affixed to the exterior of the vaults and this same information will be entered into an internal tracking system.
We Keep Track
Each piece of your shipment will be carefully inventoried and inspected for transit damage that may have occurred on the move between your residence and the warehouse.
Special tracking is used in the warehouse to store sofas and other large upholstered items. Each piece will be wrapped in clean, heavy-duty clear plastic for extra protection. Should you require access to your storage vaults during the storage period, this can be arranged through your local Atlas mover.
Atlas Canada’s goal is to keep your valued possessions safe until you are ready to move them to your new home.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) screens all goods entering Canada, which means it is not out of the ordinary for a moving container to be examined. The CBSA conducts examinations to ensure the goods inside the container will not cause harm and to confirm whether it contains dutiable or taxable goods. The ultimate goal is to make sure that only items permissible by law are crossing the Canadian border. Thus, if you track your moving container and see a status that says “Held at Customs,” it simply means the container is being held for inspection and will likely be examined and processed within a day or two.
The CBSA aims to complete all inspections in 12-48 hours, however, during high traffic periods, this can take even longer.
Generally speaking, the shipping company is responsible for damage to a container or its content, assuming the client can prove that their belongings were in good condition when given to the shipping company. That said, Atlas Van Lines takes great care when storing and preparing your moving containers. For example, our dedicated team will carefully wrap your belongings in protective moving blankets, before placing them inside clean, wooden, dust-free storage vaults, ensuring minimal damage is sustained on the journey. Once the container arrives at its destination, each of your possessions, along with the container as a whole, will be inspected and inventoried. From there, each piece will be wrapped in heavy-duty plastic for added protection. At the end of the day, Atlas Van Lines’ #1 goal is to ensure the safe and damage-free transport of your belongings.
