Innovation That Moves

Arpin’s Expertise in
Canada to US Moves

By applying our expertise in international moving to the Canada and US cross-border moving process, we have created Arpin CanAmerica®, a more streamlined moving experience for our customers moving throughout North America. Arpin International Group’s ability to perform in less time than traditional movers make this innovative service an excellent choice for meeting all your cross-border moving needs.

The Arpin family has its earliest roots in Canadian history, having started their moving business in Drummondville, Quebec, back in 1900 before immigrating to the United States. So, it was just a matter of time before the Arpin family returned to their origins. In 1992 the company began to offer its customers one of the best, most thorough United States/Canada cross-border services, as well as within the Canadian provinces. Since then, the company has become a world leader when it comes to providing top-notch cross-border moving and storage services. With the desire to constantly improve the experience for those who are looking to move quickly and efficiently across the United States/Canadian border,  we’ve created Arpin CanAmerica® an innovation in moving that allows moving between Canada and the United States a streamlined, seamless process.
