Richmond housing options In a former article, we wrote about our Surrey movers looking at Langley housing options. In this article, our Richmond movers will take a look at Richmond housing options. If you are thinking of moving, and are looking for a city to move to that will match your budget and lifestyle preferences, read on to learn more about the considerations of moving to Richmond. Richmond movers explain what it’s like to move to Richmond First of all, we’ll give you a bit of a background on moving to Richmond and what it’s like to live there. Pros of living in Richmond We wrote more extensively about this topic here: Moving to Richmond? 5 Reasons for a Richmond Move A few points to keep in mind about the pros of moving to Richmond are: It’s really close to the Vancouver International Airport. This not only provides easy access to frequent travellers, but also makes for great parks near the airport for leisurely activities, aviation business opportunities, and more. It has easy access to public transportation options (if you commute to work in a larger city like Vancouver). It hosts the Olympic Oval, if you’re into ice skating and sports. It is bustling as a community with Asian flare, including Asian shopping malls and several Asian food joints. Not to mention, the Richmond Night Market. It’s quaint town of Steveston has a lot of history and, among other things, is the filming location for a popular TV show, Once Upon A Time (if that excites you or brings tourism business ideas to mind).

Where to move for groundwater access in B.C

Where to move for groundwater access in B.C., Metro Vancouver, and the Fraser Valley Sometimes, picking a place to move in B.C., when you have options, presents a set of considerations. To some, groundwater, or well water access is important. As they say, real estate is all about location, location, location. The importance of location to you may be the idea of having a water source that is either cheap in the long run, controlled by you, or avoids surface water contaminants. Whatever your reason, we’ll discuss where to move for groundwater access in B.C., particularly in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley (though principles can apply to other parts of the province). What you should know about Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley water before you move here If you’re moving to B.C. from another area, and are used to some complaints people may have about water purity, you may not find those to be issues you’ll face after you move. You see, at least in Metro Vancouver, water does not contain added fluoride. There are opposers and proponents of fluoride out there, and we’re not here tomake the argument either way. It simply stands as a fact that you’re less likely to face added fluoride in your water if you move to B.C. Water is also soft, which affects its taste. Not only that, but some complaints about surface water contaminations in other cities are less likely to present a problem in B.C. Some people fear that pharmaceuticals can be found in their water source. However, in Metro Vancouver, surface water reservoirs are so highly placed in their...

Fishing Licenses and Regulations When you Move to BC

What to know about fishing licenses and regulations if you move to British Columbia If you’ve moved to British Columbia from another Canadian province or country, and if you love fishing, there are some things to consider about your new life as a recreational fisherman in BC’s waters. Rules can be different than where you’re from. In this article, our Metro Vancouver movers, who have moved families to and from cities in B.C., will explain a few guidelines on exploring fishing licenses and regulations in this province. Fishing in BC freshwater is not the same as fishing in saltwater; moving to B.C. means two separate fishing licenses Some bodies of water are regulated provincially, while others are regulated federally. This is important to know for BC because the province sits on the Pacific Coast. If you have traditionally fished in the Interior or the Prairies, this may be new for you upon moving to BC – having to obtain two separate license for the type of fishing you want to do. Before or after you move to BC, you’ll need to view the rules for federal fishing licenses for tidal waters. Here is a link that may help: https://www-ops2.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/nrls-sndpp/index-eng.cfm For the Federal system, it’s also important to note that Canada participates in international treaties and national laws that regulate fish species. For this reason, when you catch fish in Canadian tidal waters off the coast of B.C., you’ll need to be aware of some changing regulations and programs over time. For example, there are certain endangered species of fish you can not catch and keep. There are also special rules for your license to be...

How to mitigate a disagreement with your moving company​     

Avoiding disagreement with your moving company As a moving company in the Metro Vancouver area, and with connections to help you move across Canada or even internationally, we’ve seen a lot of customer situations. While, yes, it’s true that some things can go wrong, a well-trained staff and good communication and agreements can prevent a lot of those moving mistakes. However, sometimes you may be in a situation where you’ve hired a moving company, and things have gone sour. Perhaps your household furniture and belongings weren’t on time, or they were damaged in the moving truck while in transit. Or it could be as impactful as a mere rude employee or mover. Whatever the case, you will want to resolve these situations as smoothly as possible. We’ll give you some tips on how to mitigate a disagreement with your moving company after you’ve already hired them to help you move. Tip #1: Keep calm and try to see both sides When we’re angry, it may seem like it’s easy to lay fault on others. This is especially so if we don’t know the full extent of the situation. Before jumping to conclusions, make sure you take the time to calm yourself, so that when you do confront your moving company, or independent mover, you are doing so rationally. Chances are, if you start with a defensive tone, it can result in more defensiveness, rather than a fast solution. Tip #2: Ask questions before laying blame on a moving company To follow up with the above, while we realize sometimes you may feel that the other party was wrong in an obvious...
