Book early!

If we had to give one piece of advice and only one, we would say BOOK EARLY! BOOK EARLY! BOOK EARLY! Your preferred move date is more than likely the most preferred date for many others. So booking early will snag you that spot. The other piece of advice (if possible) is to have flexible move dates. Overlapping possession of places help and with more dates we can make sure to fit you in, and relieves some pressure and stress.

Preparing for cool months ahead!

Fall is here and winter weather is approaching faster than we can prepare for sometimes. Find that you can't make space for the summer patio furniture? Need more space in your closets for your winter wardrobe? We provide a large, secure Storage Facility for our customers. Give our office at call at 250-475-0022 to discuss storage options further. And reminder, book your move as early as you can!

Moving Expenses - BC Ferries

It is not every day people take a 5 ton truck on the ferries. Did you know it is over $500 round trip just in Ferry costs? This is one expense we keep in mind when calculating a long distance quote. Just something everyone should keep in mind when a moving company provides you with a quote. Right off the bat a good chunk of the expenses are going to BC Ferries, then of course the rising cost of fuel..

Summer 2019

Summer is here! For the moving industry, it is our busy season. We get last minute - same day move job calls all the time, and usually we need to turn them away. :(

Barry's Tip! Book your move as soon as you can, especially if you are moving in the summer, end of the month, long distances, and/or on a weekend! Ideally, booking earlier is always the better! We are a smaller moving company, that focuses on attention to detail and being reliable and professional, so these prime days tend to book up quite a few weeks, sometimes months, in advance.

Spring has sprung!

Today we celebrate the first day Spring and enjoy equal measures of day and night. Tonight is also a Super Moon. A Super Moon appears brighter and larger because the moon is at its closest approach to earth in its orbit.
