Why Choosing A Local Moving Company In Vancouver Is A Win


When it comes to choosing between national chains and a local moving company, Vancouver residents have quite a few options, but for many, if not most, working with a local moving company offers the best and most personalized experience possible.

  • Direct Communication & Accountability – When you choose a local moving company like Mountain Movers, you’ll be dealing directly with the people who are organizing your move, and who are accountable for promises made and for the service you get. Not only will you benefit from the flexibility of talking directly to the people who can help you best, but you’ll never get a bait-and-switch situation with hidden fees and broken promises, and everyone denying responsibility. We’ll give you clear, correct information about your move, and we stand by it. 
  • Local Reputation & Connections – Our success relies on our good reputation within the Vancouver community, and on the goodwill of our customers and their willingness to refer other customers. We work hard to earn the lasting trust of this community and our customers. If you need additional services like storage, we’ll refer you to local businesses who’ve earned our trust by treating our customers with the same care and respect that we do.

Why Choose Professional Movers Over Weekend Movers Or DIY?

If you’re getting ready to move, you may be considering whether to use a discounted weekend mover, go the DIY route, or hire local professional movers in Vancouver. Whatever type or service you’re considering, be sure to accurately account for all costs involved before making a decision, and that includes your own time, fuel you’ll burn if you move yourself, and the number of meals out you’ll need to buy during the move.

  • Your Time Is Valuable – Even if you have paid time off from your job, using that time is a true cost of moving, because you could be using it for something more enjoyable or in case of an emergency. Also, factor in that it will take you more time to do each of the needed tasks for moving than it would take someone who packs household goods and awkward furniture and fragile items like large mirrors on a regular basis.
  • So Are Your Household Goods – Speaking of your furniture and fragile items, while you may take great care to pack them safely, you may not have the experience to know the safest methods of packing them, and specialized packing materials will add significantly to your cost. Weekend movers or day labourers are more concerned with speed than care, and since they have very limited accountability for their work, you may find the results less than satisfactory.
  • Professional Movers Are More Experienced – professional movers have a great deal of experience working in an environment where they’re fully accountable for the care and handling of your belongings. They’ll pack everything carefully and expediently, and load and unload it efficiently, so your move is done as quickly as possible while protecting your valuable property.

Professional Movers In Vancouver Deliver Genuine Value & Care

At first glance, doing it yourself or hiring weekend movers may seem like a bargain, but when you look more closely, it may not always be the case. If you consider other factors like hidden costs and the potential for damages, choosing professional movers becomes a no-brainer. Mountain Movers has built its reputation on delivering safe and reliable service in the Vancouver, B.C. area at affordable rates.
