Moving from Montreal to Vancouver

Moving from Montreal to Vancouver across the entire country is no small undertaking.  Using a professional moving company is invaluable involving everything from planning, preparing, packing & the move itself.

King’s Transfer has the experience & the resources to make your move as stress free as possible.

Our relocation consultants will be there to assist you in preparing your family for the big move.  While our crews of professional van operators will take care of your belongings from packing & padding in Montreal to placing within your new home in Vancouver.

Planning your move from Montreal to Vancouver

Proper preparation is essential to save you money.  Not properly timing each step can come back to haunt you later.  Especially if this pushes back anticipated dates which can lead to costly hotels for an entire family.

Long distance moving fees are calculated on the the weight of your shipment once loaded onto the moving van (the truck is scaled by a certified scale master before & after loading).  If you choose to have us pack your belongings this is also calculated by weight as well.  We always need to stress: proper packing is essential to protect your fragile items travelling over highways for over 4500 km.

Since all costs are based on weight, downsizing your belongings before can save you significant funds.  This is can be the ideal time to reconsider little things like it is truly worthwhile holding onto that 300lb treadmill that is used as a clothes drying rack since the 90’s?

Our moving consultants can do free in home surveys with specialized software that can give accurate estimated weights to assist you in your planning.

    Why move to Vancouver?

    Vancouver is one of the most sought over (and expensive) cities to live in Canada.  Yet with a population of under a million people the city offers calm green spaces galore flanked by ocean shorelines & the Rocky Mountains to the east.  As such it has become a highly sought destination.

    The city is a major base for the film industry, a tech industry hub & has become the cultural center of western Canda with a very active night life.  Which adds the attraction to young professionals.

    It is a true world metropolitan which, according to the 2011 census, has 48% of the population first language of English with the rest being Cantonese/Mandarin/Chinese, Punjabi, Spanish, Persian, and Tagalog.

    Important things about moving in the Vancouver area

    Parking space (or meters) if needed.  Curb space comes at a premium in the downtown areas.  Be sure to check if you need a permit or reserve space for the moving truck to avoid any surprises the day of delivery.  You should apply for the permit at least 7 days before.

    If you are moving with your dog, including service dogs, that is older than the months old you will need an annual licence.

    Local garbage pickup – check ahead for the designated pick up days.  The city of Vancouver provides each home with a garbage & a green bin.  Contact the city if you cannot locate them, or risk being passed over for pickups.  There is no recycling or large size item pick up.
