Moving a household can be daunting. Knowing which Kelowna Moving Company to call—even which type of moving company—can be challenging.
Start with the type of move:LONG DISTANCE MOVE
Are you going to move long distance? If so, you may find traditional moving companies are best suited. You can also look at renting a 'one way' truck, packing and driving yourself. Right now, we do not offer long distance moves.
If you are moving within the same town or general area—even moving within BC—you have many more moving options.KELOWNA MOVING COMPANY
You can of course use a traditional moving company. They pack your boxes on the truck—they can also pack your things into boxes—then they drive the truck to the new location, and unpack your boxes for you. This is a very expensive option, running into the 1000s of dollars.KELOWNA U-HAUL
In this scenario, you rent a truck or trailer. You pack and load and drive. Then unpack and return the truck. The truck is usually rented by the day, and gets expensive if you need the truck for any period of of time. Weekends and month ends are even more expensive. What this means is you try to cram your move into as few days as possible. Maybe bring in a gang of friends and helpers, hoping enough show up. You know the scene...MOVING WITH PICKUP TRUCK RUNS
Find a friend with a pickup, 2 more friends to help load and unload, and load and drive like crazy for as many trips as it takes! Depending on how far you drive, and how much beer the loaders drink, this can be economical, although leaves you owing a few favors. It is also rushed and most likely disorganized.KELOWNA PORTABLE STORAGE MOVE
This is a relatively new concept, and most people do not know it exists. It makes most sense if you do not mind boxing your own things, and prefer to take your time.
You can rent a mobile moving container by the month. So get your moving container a couple weeks before you move - and - as your time allows - box your things and move the boxes into the container. Work nights, days, weekends - whatever is best for you.
When it is moving day, we will move the entire container (without tipping it!) to the new location. At the new location, repeat the process with unpacking. Take a week or two - move your things into your new place on your own schedule. Simply call us when you are done, and we take the mobile moving container away.
This is the solution with no rush; no need to call in favours; no need for multiple trips; no big truck to drive yourself and—maybe the best part—likely the least expensive way to move!
