What Is Bonded Storage?

Bonded storage (also known as bonded warehouses or customs warehouses) are storage facilities in which you can store goods without having to pay duties upon them.
How does that work? We’ll illustrate with an example:  Frank is moving from Germany to Toronto. He’s shipped his things to Canada, but he’s still looking for a place to live. Frank can leave them in bonded storage until he’s ready to move.

What Are the Other Advantages of Using Bonded Storage?

For a start, you can store goods there for at least 40 days (longer with written permission from CBSA). That’s a pretty important fact to know if it takes you longer than expected to find a place to live.
Second, these warehouses are specially equipped to preserve your belongings. They’re temperature controlled, so you don’t need to worry about mold or damage from the heat or cold. That feature gives you peace of mind.
Third, bonded storage is highly secure. Only authorized personnel can enter them, and they are safeguarded by state-of-the-art systems. So, as long as your belongings are stored there, you don’t have to worry about them being damaged or stolen.
Fourth, it doesn’t matter how little or how much you’re shipping – chances are that the bonded storage facility can accommodate your shipment. This is good news if you’re shipping a large amount of things (such as the contents of your home) or if you’re shipping something small yet quite valuable (such as a painting that’s worth thousands of dollars).
Fifth, moving companies generally run bonded storage facilities. When you’re ready to move your belongings, the shipping company can load the items onto a truck and deliver them to wherever you need. That means that’s one less hassle you have to worry about when you’re ready to move.
