Moving with Containers

For long-distance moving outside BC, we offer a container service that allows you to transport and temporarily store your items for the ultimate peace of mind and protection.

Our containers are:

  • Available in a range of sizes
  • Clean, secure, weatherproof and rodent-proof
  • Allow you to separate possessions and seal each container yourself
  • Convenient if you need short-term (30-90 day) storage

Third-party Services

Do you have a gas stove, a vintage Corvette or a high-end pool table you’re taking with you? We’ll arrange the assembly and disassembly of your most delicate and treasured items so you know they’re taken care of here and there.

Transit Protection

Our professional movers always treat your items with the utmost care; however, sometimes incidents happen during moves that may damage your items. To ensure your possessions are protected no matter what, we offer a choice of both released value and replacement value protection, and our moving consultants take the time to ensure you understand your transit protection options.
