Domestic Container Service

Flexibility of Delivery

Container truck

United Van Lines’ domestic container service is available on long distance moves travelling over 700 miles within Canada.


When you move with Burgess Transfer you have the choice of shipping your household effects by van or by United Van Lines container service. Before you determine which service will suit you best, your moving needs must be identified. Moving by containers provides some unique benefits over moving by standard van.


A container is best visualized by dividing a moving van into compartments. United Van Lines containers are loaded by trained professionals. Your moving consultant has more details about guaranteeing the exclusive use of a United container.


Whether you need expedited or delayed delivery, the flexibility of containers can provide it. Using our transit time schedules, you can choose the delivery that suits you at the time of booking your container shipment. Container flexibility can handle most situations. However, when you require short term storage, containers can be stored on a low cost basis.


United’s containers are the perfect solution for moves in which short term storage is required. Because we store your shipment right in the container in which it was loaded, your household effects do not have to be reloaded onto a van for delivery when your new home is ready. This means less handling. Your possessions are safer, and less susceptible to accidents.


The financial investment and dedication to the concept of container service for over 20 years has made United Van Lines and its members the leader in container moving systems.
