Hi, thanks so much for visiting Movers.com! I will be happy to address your question for you.
Movers.com does not deal with any moves directly, but we can put you in contact with the right type of services needed for your move, and provide you with plenty of information along the way. Since you only have one item to ship, you would generally qualify for what is called a “small move,” or any move that totals less than 2,000 pounds. However, since you will be shipping to Canada, your best bet is to go with international shippers, as they will be well versed in rules and regulations pertaining to shipping between various countries, and be properly licensed and insured. Since your shipment would not be traveling overseas, you could still try contacting some small moving companies to see if they provide any services to Canada.
