Managing possessions being delivered to multiple locations is precise work.
Moving to the US from Canada is a great time to consider down sizing or redecorating. Cherished possessions and familiar comfort possessions will need to be moved. Moving is a lot of work and cost compared to acquiring new after arrival however. Many US cities face rising real estate costs that push everyone to live in homes that more exactly fit their needs too.
Moving items difficult to replace, are the heart of every move to the United States.
There are always remaining items. Perhaps to be sent to a relative or friend. Some who move to the USA put these items into storage, awaiting their return, or 'just in case' they will be needed. They can be easily and economically shipped after 6 months or a year, via the next available groupage container. If not needed, items in the furniture vault storage container can be turned over to an estate liquidator, charity or shipped to a friend or relative for disposal
Split Shipment Move Success Tools
Each Canada to US Split Shipment Move gets has tools that address their specific move.
Split Shipment Moves focus on getting the right items to the right destination. Often they include uncertainty and changing decisions about destinations. They always require extended documentation and approval confirmation so both recipients expectations are fulfilled.

Damage items never go unnoticed, especially where it is a family member who remembers the item as it was when they were growing up.
