Moving to BC - recommendations on shipping 16 ft container from Ontario to BC.
We will sell all our big stuff - furniture etc. We will take Kitchen utensils/dishes/cutlery etc, clothes, gym equipment (weights, treadmill), 2 road bikes and maybe one TV (70 inch).
After doing some research, it appears that the "less" expensive solution to hiring a moving company ($10K at least) is to rent a container from a company such as https://pupscontainers.com/en . They drop off a 16 ft container at your home. You can then pack your stuff in it and then they come back and pick it up and ship it to your destination (in my case Victoria, BC) and then drop it off at your new place or store it at their location (if you don't have a place by the time the container gets there).
So the rental of the container for a 4 week period as an example plus the shipping to BC is a whopping $6.5K. Not much less than hiring a moving company to move all of your crap (4 bedroom house and all the furniture etc).
Are there any other options that are cheaper than this?
We'll be driving (taking the one car we have) across Canada on the TransCanada highway and doing a lot of sightseeing along the way - so we will only have our clothes etc in the car.
Towing a trailer is out of the question as I have absolutely zero interest in doing that on a sightseeing trip that will take at least a week. Too much hassle.
