Innovation That Moves

Arpin’s Expertise in
Cross Border Moves

By applying our expertise in international moving to the cross-border moving process, we have created Arpin CanAmerica®, a more streamlined moving experience for our customers. Arpin International Group’s ability to perform in less time than traditional movers makes this innovative service an excellent choice for meeting your relocation needs, whether it be a personal home move or getting your employees settled into their new home quickly, and ready to get to work.

The Arpin family has a very personal and special relationship when it comes to Canada and cross-border moving. Back in 1900 the Arpin family moved from Drummondville, Quebec, Canada, to Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Upon their arrival, the family’s patriarch opened Paul Arpin & Son. At that time, the company’s primary service was the delivery of coal and ice through a single horse and cart. Since then the company has transformed into Arpin International Group one of the world’s leaders when it comes to relocation services. Arpin never forgot its Canadian legacy and has provided custom moving services back and fourth between both countries for over a half a century. With the desire to constantly improve the experience for those who are looking to do a cross-border move the family created Arpin CanAmerica® an innovation in moving that specializes in moving between both Canada and the United States.
