Storage Methods
International Shipping Transferred to Local Delivery Packing Methods 1.Traditional "Palletized" Storage
Generally, this method is used in local situations, and for any type or length of storage term. Pallets or storage vaults are clean wooden storage crates specifically designed to store household goods. Their approximate 6ft’ X 7ft’ X 7ft’ holds approximately 1.5 rooms of furniture. When loaded into specially designed "curtain-side vans", we can safely transport up to five units directly to your home facilitating direct loading or unloading. This significantly reduces the handling of your possessions, resulting in lower costs and reduced risks. We offer palletized storage at over 220 facilities across Canada.


Container Shipping for International Ocean Transit 2.Container Service
This storage method is used for international transport, with varying storage components of up to six months. Bekins shipping containers are government certified intermodal containers that have been modified with extra insulation and specially lined. They are equipped with furniture pads, straps and state of the art load restraint systems to cover and secure your goods during transit. Their 8ft X 8ft X 20ft size holds approximately 6 rooms of furniture. We can transport up to 3 at a time. They can also be dropped off at your site for on-site storage or self-loading.

Storage Security

Each container is equipped with ample furniture pads, straps and state of the art load restraint systems to cover and secure your goods during transit.

This special feature, and our handling techniques, have given Bekins one of the lowest claim ratios in the industry.
