Move from Canada to the United States
Fred Hawthorne is a tenured relocation professional who manages a fairly large local and long distance hauling fleet at abbeyWood Moving and Storage, a United Van Lines agent located in Scarborough, Ontario. Recently he decided to combine his teaching background with his extensive moving and storage industry experience to produce several very informative video tutorials to assist Canadian residents, snowbirds, and transferred expatriates who’ve decided to move from Canada to the U.S. under their own steam. The information is part of the company’s new online library developed to assist anyone facing an upcoming relocation.
Fred's easy to understand explanations and relaxed presentation style reflect his extensive experience with the procedures developed jointly by Canada’s Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to facilitate the clearance of household goods shipments, automobiles and personal effects moving from Canada into the United States.
