In 1997, John Gray Moving & Storage launched our Cross-Border division with very impressive results. Our success has been the result of an extensive employee training program, excellent personalized service, and extremely competitive rates.
We Charge Lower Rates
If you are considering an overseas move, we urge you to first meet with one of our moving consultants. After discussing which services you will required, John Gray Moving & Storage will provide you with a detailed moving proposal. Because we are equipped to handle all origin and transportation services ourselves, our rates will often be lower than those of our competitors.

At John Gray Moving & Storage, we are able to offer a flat-rate charge based on our visual survey. We specialize in destinations such as Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec, New York, Boston, and the eastern USA. We provide a full range of services at both origin and destination such as packing, crating, storage and customs clearance. You can trust that we will provide all necessary documentation and answer any questions you may have.
