Take the stress out of a Christmas move by booking your long distance movers now.

Have you just sold your house in Kelowna? Are you planning a long distance move near or over the holidays? Are you worried that you won’t be ready? Don’t panic. If you book your long distance movers now, there’s no reason to start packing all your belongings right away. Why not take the time to enjoy Christmas in Kelowna? See the sights around town, visit with your family and friends, and let your long distance moving company take care of the rest.


Walking in a winter wonderland

Kelowna has so much to offer as far as winter and Christmas activities and events go. With a top-rated ski resort (Big White), outdoor ice skating, and even ice fishing on nearby lakes, why not book your moving company in advance, and take in some of these events:

  • See all the lights flicker and dance at Light Up Big White, Dec 2 from 5-6:30 p.m. There will be lasers and carols, fireworks and elves. Dress warm!
  • Meet talented crafters and artisans from all over Western Canada under one roof at the Craft Culture Holiday Market, Dec. 9 and 10 at Kelowna’s Prospera Place.
  • Experience the magic and wonder of the beloved classic at the annual presentation of The Nutcracker, 8-10 at the Kelowna Community Theatre. ETA Hoffmann’s classic story, set to the music of Tchaikovsky, is presented by the Canadian School of Ballet and Ballet Kelowna.
  • Celebrate Canada’s 150th with a production of A Kelowna Christmas Carol, based on the Charles Dickens classic and set in the first days of Kelowna, complete with music, Dec. 14-16 and 21 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.


Making a list and checking it twice

So your long distance movers are booked and Christmas is around the corner. Now what? Just like your Christmas to-do list, it doesn’t hurt to make a moving checklist, with some of the things you can do early before the holiday craziness really begins. Checking off those items you can do beforehand, such as selling off some of the belongings you don’t need, may even give you a little extra cheer for your credit card bill.



Still worried about your long distance move? If you have visions of sugarplums dancing in your heads, along with the thought of organizing and packing all your belongings, why not get the professionals to help? Moving companies in Kelowna that offer all-inclusive services such as content packing, unpacking and storage might be your saving grace. Packers and movers can arrive at your home a few days before your move and pack everything in half the time it would take you, so you can concentrate on wrapping presents, not dishes. If you have guests arriving for the holidays and want to get a few items out of your home early, you can also take advantage of moving and storage services. After picking up your items, your moving company can hold onto your items in their own safe and secure storage facility until you are ready to move into your new home.
