Choosing Your Mover:

There are many local moving companies out there. Companies that charge significantly less than their competitors often take on too many contracts

and eventually may have to flush a few clients because they have no more time or energy. We get many calls from people who have experienced

this and quite often it is the cheaper companies who cancel with little or no warning. As well, make sure the company has been in business for at

least four years so you are not victim of their learning curve.

Established in Great Vancouver, Vancouver Movers is a professional moving company that will take your home anywhere locally, nationality

and internationally. With professional skills and first class customer services, Vancouver Movers built a solid client base in Great Vancouver.

Vancouver Movers is located throughout the Vancouver region, with offices in Vancouver. We offer all-inclusive moving services from packing,

cleaning, transporting to settling into new homes; one-stop moving solution to free you completely from all the hassles.

 

Parking:

Do you have a narrow street, if we were to “double park” would cars be able to get around us If not, you must secure parking. It is illegal to

impede the flow of traffic (think ambulances and fire trucks). Try to put up a sign the night before indicating the day and time you will be moving.

Alternatively, ask neighbors to help by parking their vehicles near your home. Vancouver Movers requires, ideally, the space of three cars.

This might be an important consideration especially if you live on an extremely narrow street and are unable to secure parking.

 

Packing:

Pack ahead of time or use our packing services. Use boxes for fragile items not garbage bags. Use smaller boxes for books and other heavy items.

Ask your local moving company such as Vancouver Movers for professional moving boxes. Good quality boxes increase the moving efficiency

and protection of your valuables. Group all your boxes all in one place. Vancouver Movers usually start with larger furniture and place the boxes

on top of these. Be sure to tape the bottom of your boxes. Simply folding the flanges will not hold the contents when we lift the boxes.

Position plates vertically, do not put glasses with other items, using printer paper to protect these items. If you can hear them clinking,

they are not well protected.

Do not use masking tape. This is just paper with glue- it has no strength. Do not use Duct tape, it is not adhesive enough on cardboard.

Dressers and drawers must be emptied especially if they are IKEA. If your furniture is sturdier and we are going from a ground to a ground and the

piece does not have to be tipped vertically say into an elevator, then you can leave some clothing in the drawers.

If you have shelving in a unit, remove them. We always wrap the furniture and would appreciate our clients helping us with these little details.

If something big was assembled in your home, chances are it will need to be dismantled prior to moving (we can do this- let us know beforehand in

the contact form). Put all of the components (screws, bolts, pegs, etc.) in one bag and tape it to the piece it belongs to.

 

Elevators:

If there’s one in your building, have the superintendent to reserve it. A reserved elevator can significantly increase moving process of Vancouver Movers.

 

Super Attendants and Building Administration:

It is essential that you advise your building that you are moving. Sometimes clients are surprised to discover that a condo unit or building does not allow

moves on a particular day or during certain times.

 

Final Points of Consideration:

If it is a hot day, Vancouver Movers always appreciate consideration from our clients. Feel free to offer a bottle of water. We are a team made up of

you and us. As such, our common goal is to make certain the move is successful and relatively stress free. Friends and family are always welcome to help.

They are most needed for smaller items and for dis-assembly (not to mention moral support).

 

If you have a cat or a dog, please try to bring them to the new place beforehand. Quite often pets will bark or meow incessantly when we are moving their home.

Morning reservations are better than afternoon ones in that we can guarantee to be at your home at the specified morning time. Afternoon moves work

with a range of time to account for potential delays with our earlier bookings.

 

If there is a long carry let us know. This means for example, if the distance between your home and the elevator, the elevator to the truck is more than 50 feet,

let us know. Walking these long distances back and forth adds a lot of time and increases the overall cost.
