With the new social lockdown announced by the BC Government, Barry's continues to monitor and implement new policies at this time to do our part to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 while we remain in operation during this uncertain time. We are doing the following:

  • Booking only essential residential moves that are 1 bedroom or larger;

  • Booking only 1 residential move per day, per truck and crew, to minimize daily contacts and to minimize risk of transmission;

  • Aiming to stay local in our Victoria BC community, unless the situation is dire and deemed essential;

  • Suspending Packing Services, to reduce contacts of personal belongings that may have higher chance of potential spread (example bathroom, kitchen items);

  • Briefing staff on cleanliness measures to be taken before, during, and after moves;

  • Stocking our moving trucks with PPE (Hand sanitizer, masks, gloves) and using them when required as per WorkSafe guidelines;

  • Working closely with customers to minimize the risk to those most vulnerable, including elders and the immunocompromised;

  • Ensuring staff experiencing symptoms are supported in staying home and self-isolating; and

  • Offering quick and comprehensive quotes over the phone and via email.

We are booking up faster than usual since we have to spread out our moves more, and we have to take more time to ensure proper steps are taken. We ask our customers to book well in advance of their move date and continue to treat our staff politely and respectful as we do our best to navigate through this time.

Thank you for your continued support. Lets move through this together safely.

Good job BC! With the news of Victoria entering Phase 3, we are excited to start booking free in home estimates again. Of course with taking all the necessarily precautions.

However, If your move is smaller than a typical 3 bedroom, please feel free to use our Request an Estimate form on our website instead! When you do, please include as many details are possible (pretend your an Estimator). If you remember something later, and you already booked with us, call us and we will update your details. It can cause some extra stress when our crew arrives and there is a surprise piano or fish tank! We want to be as prepared as possible and bring the right tools and amount of employees.

We are still not offering packing services at this time. An update will be provided when this changes. Be packed and ready to go. If you are not packed our crew may leave and we will have to reschedule.

Let's keep flattening the curve, and move forward together!

Thank you,

Barry's Moving

Summer is around the bend, and after a very unusual spring, Barry's is prepared for another summer of moving! Even though we have implemented some new policies, we still expect the summer to be our busy season.

With that said, book your move as soon as you can. Our busiest times are at the end of the month and on weekends, especially during the summer months!

Please note, due to the covid-19, we are not offering packing services. Please be packed and ready to go, or we may not be able to complete your move on your move day.

We are also not doing in home estimates for the time being. So, when you call or email, please be prepared to provide us with a detailed list of your items (all large items, and estimated amount of boxes) and detailed access information (how close can we get to the door, how many stairs, elevator times etc.).

A special thanks to all the front line workers, and everyone else in BC, for doing their part and flattening the curve, just in time for Summer! Stay diligent, stay safe, and keep doing your part and we hope all Victoria, Vancouver Island, and BC gets to enjoy the sun this summer.
