Long Distance Movers in Halifax

With all of the cleaning, packing and change of address notifications, even a local move is challenging, let alone a move to a new country! When you undergo international moves from Halifax, Burgess Transfer strives to take away some of the stress you experience during this major life event. Whether you’re moving the contents of an apartment, a 4-bedoom home or a large office, we customize your move to meet your needs and budget.


If you’d like to save a few dollars, and have done a few moves in the past, you may wish to do the packing yourself; we offer packing supplies in all sizes to help you pack your belongings right. If you’d like a full-service move, we can pack and unpack for you, saving you time and giving you the peace of mind of knowing your belongings have been safely packaged for transport.


Here are some useful tips to follow for a successful long distance move:

  • Plan ahead: contact us a few months ahead of the move or as soon as possible
  • Stay organized: pack non-essential items first and label every single box
  • Buy moving insurance: having a policy protects your belongings and gives you peace of mind
  • Get an in-home estimate: an in-home visit allows us to introduce ourselves and measure your items for a more accurate quote
  • Go through your belongings: consider the size of your new home and your budget; a garage sale or donations to a local shelter or charity allow you to get rid of unwanted items, cut down your moving cost and help people in need
  • Consider your timeline: if you need us to delay or expedite your move, let us know! We can deliver when your new space is ready and even offer short-term storage if you need it.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions about your move. You have a lot on your plate during this time, and we’ll do all that we can to help make the process smoother for you.
