Like many other cities in Canada, Vancouver has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. But even though many people are still wary of venturing out in public, the process of selling and buying homes or relocating businesses hasn’t stopped. In fact, many are using this “down time” as an opportunity to find a new home or business location that better suits their needs, and in some cases, saves them money.
When moving day comes, consider the advantages of hiring a local moving service like Montgomery Moving Co. to take you on to your next journey:
1. Faster, Personalized Service
Using a local moving service instead of a larger franchise gives you more flexibility in your move.You can choose the services you need and avoid paying for ones you don’t. Every move is tailored to your expectations, and we can usually work around your timeline.
2. Cost Effectiveness
Larger moving companies usually have more overhead than a local moving service. Aside from professional equipment and trucks, you’re also paying for their office space, marketing and advertising, and increased payroll costs.
Using a local moving company usually means greater cost savings for you without sacrificing the level of service you receive. We can afford to offer our services for less than many major movers in Vancouver because we have minimal overhead and a smaller yet experienced team.
3. Fewer Trips than DIY
When you handle your own move with your own vehicle, you’re likely facing several trips back and forth before all of your things are in your new place. Depending on how far you’re traveling, this can translate into higher fuel costs, wear and tear on your vehicle, and lots of hands-on activity.
Naturally, a local moving service with large trucks can get you moved faster in fewer trips. This is a major advantage for those who are on a strict timeline and need to move quickly. It also saves you money in terms of fuel costs and vehicle maintenance.
4. Experienced Professionals
When you hire real local movers, you’re getting a team of professionals with the skills and equipment to make your move a success. Things like furniture movers, safe lifting tools, and all the packing supplies you could ask for to ensure your valuables and fragile items are protected and will make it safely to their destination. We’re also fully insured and bonded to give you added peace of mind.
5. Support Small Local Businesses
Last but not least, using a local moving service allows you to support the Vancouver small business community. Because of COVID-19, many small businesses in our area are suffering and need support now more than ever.
We’ve been fortunate here at Montgomery Moving Co. to still have our doors open and ready for you, and we’re taking every precaution to maintain social distancing and prioritise your health and safety.
