Moving To New York?

Made Easier With Toronto City Movers

Relocating from Canada to the United States is a relatively straightforward process, providing all of the necessary documentation is properly completed. Your personal household goods and personal effects are permitted to enter duty-free providing they have been in your possession and used by you for at least one year.

One cautionary note - if you do not declare new items or understate the value of the items, U.S. Customs can confiscate the items, assess actual duty and assign a monetary penalty. Therefore, if you are considering making purchases of expensive items, prior to your move, you may want to compare the cost to actually making your purchase in the United States.

Antiques must be 100 years or older to be eligible for duty-free entry. Customs will require that you prove this, so be prepared to furnish a receipt or an appraisal.

You will be required to complete the United State's Department of Homeland Security Form #3299 (Declaration of Free Entry of Articles Not Accompanying a Resident or Non-Resident). You can obtain this form here.

Household Effects and Tools of Trade or Occupation are defined by the U.S. Government as:

  • All furniture
  • Carpets
  • Paintings
  • Tableware
  • Linens and similar household furnishings

While it is not normal practice to charge duty on used personal items, technically, some items such as jewelry, photographic equipment, vehicles, consumable articles etc. may be dutiable. You should check with the nearest U.S. Consulate in your area for specific information. If you are already in the United states, contact your nearest Customs Office listed in U.S. telephone directories under: U.S. Government Offices, Treasury Department.
