Bekins’ moving services can help Santa protect his back when delivering large and heavy presents.

You just found a fully-restored Pac-Man arcade game complete with built-in console and LED flat screen monitor that your now adult brother has been talking about for ages, but you have no way of delivering it to his home. If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, see how Bekins’ specialty moving services can help save your back and be like Santa all at the same time.


Santa’s Very Own Helpers

There are those of us here in the Okanagan who want to be able to give large and fragile gifts such as pianos, antiques, pool tables, gaming units, hot tubs, and even Christmas trees, but don’t have the equipment, large enough vehicle or storage facilities to make it happen.

Here in the Okanagan, Bekins offers household movers who are equipped to haul such large and fragile items, including that Steinway piano you found and are now planning to give to the young protégée in your family. Bekins’ piano movers will make sure it arrives all in one piece by using special equipment such as:   

  • Ramps
  • Dollies
  • Straps
  • Skids


A Hot Tub Time Machine in Time for the New Year

There’s nothing more relaxing than watching as the snow falls gently on the cedars from your very own hot tub. However, moving a hot tub from one place to another can be the cause of unwanted stress, both mentally and physically.

If you’re purchasing or moving a hot tub from another home, Bekins hot tub movers can help. We not only send in a third party to drain and handle the electrical components of the hot tub, but we also bring in the necessary equipment, such as a crane truck and specialized dollies, to lift and place the hot tub on our truck. Our installation partners then hook up your new hot tub once it is delivered, so all you have to do is crack open the bubbly and toast the New Year while soaking all the year’s stresses away.


A Surprise Santa Gift

Maybe it’s an antique grandfather clock or set of bone china that you know your wife will love, or a large home appliance you found on eBay, but finding a place in which to store your large purchases can be a saving grace over the holidays. What sets Bekins Vernon movers apart from other moving companies is that we not only offer local and long-distance moving services, we also have a climate-controlled warehouse at our headquarters in Lake Country. Our residential and commercial storage services are perfect for those who want to store or hide away large items before they are delivered. Imagine the delight on your loved one’s face when our moving truck arrives with your surprise Santa gift!


All Treed up for the Holidays

Businesses and non-profits can also benefit from Bekins Kelowna’s moving services as was seen recently with our involvement in the Central Okanagan Hospice Association’s Home for the Holidays event. We were not only sponsors of the event, but our movers also delivered a number of undecorated trees to the seven homes involved in the fundraiser. We also picked the trees up, wrapped and decorated, and delivered them to a special after-party where they were auctioned off. You can read all about in our press release, Bekins ‘Treed up’ for Holiday Hospice Fundraiser.
