London, England -

PSS International, a Croydon, UK-based international removals company, has recently issued a guide on how people can ship their electrical appliances to Canada from the UK. This guide is helpful for those unaware of the differences in voltages and will explain whether it is worth shipping electrical appliances to Canada. The guide can be found here:

The guide stresses the importance of understanding that the standard voltage in the UK is 240 volts while the standard voltage in Canada is 120 volts. Therefore, some products that would work perfectly well in the UK, may not be suited to the Canadian electrical system. Electrical appliances that are dual voltage, which are appliances that will work between 110-240 volts, can be used in both Canada and the UK.

using UK electrical appliances in Canada

A possible solution for using UK electrical appliances in Canada is to use a voltage converter, which can change the voltage to suit the actual voltage from electrical outlets. In general, a step-down converter will be needed in Canada as appliances that are 230 or 240 volts in the UK and will now need to operate at 110 or 120 volts in Canada.

Meanwhile, a good question is whether it is really worth bringing one’s large appliances from the UK to Canada. The guide explains that it may not be worth it for some products when considering the shipping costs and the cost of replacing those items in Canada. For instance, a TV unit from the UK is not worth the trouble bringing to Canada unless it is dual voltage. Laptops, on the other hand, are designed to operate for both 120 and 240 volts. The same would be true for UK game consoles. The general rule of thumb is that dual voltage appliances are worth shipping because they will only need an outlet adapter to make them work.

The good news is that PSS International Removals can ship appliances to Canada using their box shipping service. Liam Witham, CEO of PSS International Removals, says, “If you are looking to ship electrical appliances and other personal effects to Canada, we will be able to help. The company have been shipping to Canada for over 40 years and will be able to provide a great service for an affordable price."

PSS provide shipping services from the UK to several countries. In order to make it easier and more convenient for customers to estimate their moving costs, they offer an online cost calculator. This cost calculator will allow customers to receive a guideline price for shipping to Canada in less than 60 seconds. For a more accurate quotation, it is recommended that customers book a home survey or video survey with an international removals surveyor.

Whether customers decide to move a few boxes or the whole household, including a car, they will receive help with documentation and customs clearance.
