Professional last minute movers not only have the strength, but the tools knowledge and services to help you move into your new home.

When you’re in a hurry to move, unexpected obstacles can often get in the way. Maybe you don’t have time to pre-condition your core muscles, along with your quadriceps, hamstrings, shoulders, arms, hands and wrists, necessary when lifting and moving heavy items. Maybe you just don’t know what you’re doing. It’s OK to admit it. It not only takes strength to move last minute, it takes know-how. Professional last minute movers are not only trained in the fine art of moving, they have the right tools in their arsenal to help package, protect, carry and store your items in the safest and most practical way possible.


In a pinch:

So, you’ve made the right decision and decided to hire professionals to help you with your move. When choosing from trusted moving companies in Kelowna, it’s best to ask a few hardball questions:

  • Do you offer last minute moving services?
  • Is your moving company licensed and insured?
  • Do you give free moving quotes and estimates?
  • Do you offer content packing and unpacking services?
  • Do you move heavy items such as pianos, pool tables, etc.?
  • Do you have storage available?


Strength in numbers:

If they’re in their right mind, and body, professional movers know how to handle large, heavy and fragile items by having the proper equipment at hand. Kelowna movers such as Bekins Moving and Storage have more than 30 pieces of equipment to help lift and safely move everything from washers and dryers to hot tubs and pool tables. They even offer piano moving.


Don’t back out:

If you’ve ever relied on family, friends and coworkers to help you with your move, then you know how tricky it can be when one or a few of them have to back out. Don’t be caught up the creek without a paddle. Hiring professional movers means that you will have willing and able bodies to help you with your last-minute move. So once everything is packed and ready, you can relax and enjoy the ride to your new home. And if you don’t have time to pack, read our next step.
