Do-It-Yourself Moving

You Move Yourself

If you’re looking for a DIY approach to your move, we can help you execute your transition as easy as you decided to self-move. Our Do-It-Yourself moving system is Canada’s number one long distance DIY solution. Our state-of-the-art moving containers and extensive network make it possible for you to move yourself across Canada, hassle-free. It’s simple, you pack and load your belongings, and we take care of the driving. 

Do-It-Yourself Moving

Moving containers are great for temporary storage, making the unpacking and organizing of your new home a little less stressful. We pride ourselves on offering this one-of-a-kind service to bring you peace of mind during an important life milestone. Here’s what you can expect from your do-it-yourself move with a Mayflower Canada moving container.



Pick Your Moving Container

Send us the details of what you plan to move and we can recommend which container best suits your belongings. Our moving containers come in a number of sizes to accommodate different sized shipments.

Book Your Move

Give us a call or book your move online. We’ll secure your moving containers for your move.

Moving Out

The morning of your move, we will drop your container off at your doorstep. You have 8 hours to load the container from the time it’s dropped off.

Load Your Belongings

Every moving container conveniently comes with equipment to properly protect your household items. The amount of straps, skins and pads included in each container varies with its size. Walkboards are also included in the event you require them.

Quilted furniture pads are used to wrap wood pieces and upholstered items. For heavier items, burlap skins can be used to cover those pieces.

Once you’re done wrapping your goods and loading them into the container, tie off your shipment with the provided straps to secure them.

Lock Your Moving Container

Insert your own lock into the latch once you’ve finished loading your container. You are required to use your own lock as this is not provided with the container to ensure the privacy and protection of your goods.


Once you’ve locked up your container, it’s our turn to take over! We’ll drive your container to your new home so you don’t have to worry about the fuel economy or journey. Our certified drivers understand how important your cargo is and are fully committed to ensuring it arrives in a safe and timely manner. When booking your move, you can schedule your delivery with your moving professional.

Moving In

A driver will call the day before to arrange the delivery of your container. Once it’s dropped off at your new residence, you have 8 hours to unload the container. When you’re done unloading your container leave all the equipment the container originally came with inside for the drive to pick up.

We recommend you obtain any parking permits that may be required to drop the container off ahead of time.
