Top 6 Questions Renters Need To Ask Moving Companies Before Moving – Overnight Moving Services for Vancouver Renters
Most renters believe they can simply move out and move into their new space on the same day. Sounds logical right? Well, let’s examine what actually happens:
Let’s say you plan to move from Richmond or Surrey into your new apartment in Vancouver all on the 1st of the month. Now, if you were to move out after giving 30 days notice, you would have to be out no later than midnight on the last day of the month. This is because the new renter is moving in on the 1st of the month.
So, when you go to move, you may be surprised to find out you will need to move out on the last day of the month but cannot move in until the 1st day of the month — the next day.
This means you may need overnight moving services, beyond just booking a hotel or stay at a relatives or friends for the night.
If you find yourself in this position, as many movers in the Vancouver Area do, make sure you are dealing with movers that can handle overnight storage.
Here are six key questions to ask moving companies in Vancouver if you need overnight services:
Do you offer overnight storage?
Will the furniture and boxes stay loaded on the truck?
Do you charge extra for overnight storage?
Will the moving truck be parked inside or outside?
What type of security will you offer?
Will the same movers be available on both days?
At Ferguson Moving & Storage, we typically come in as a huge relief to people in this situation. We offer free overnight storage and we can leave everything loaded on the truck. The best part is, we do not leave your truck sitting outside. We park the truck and contents inside our secure warehouse. This way there is no extra handling and your goods are safe.

"I had forgotten to finally leave a review as it was 3 months ago now that I moved. A 5 star review is not enough for Ferguson Moving. They deserve no less than 6 out of 5 stars. I've moved too much recently, 3 times in years. There's no one else I would trust more to secure and move everything and work with. My family has been using Ferguson's and only Ferguson's for over 20 years, even to move up to a 4500 square foot house of contents. Austin, Brad and Sophiana, or Sophiyana, (hopefully either spelling is correct!) were the best. They take their job seriously, have a strong sense of loyalty and commitment to the client(s). The sad reality that most people don't realize is that most moving companies are non insured, non registered "businesses" that recruit addicts that are payed by cash. People would be horrified if they knew how other moving "companies" operated. I've heard horror stories from friends and family companies that held their contents "hostage" demanding more money upon delivery to the new home. Or meth heads with hardly any teeth. Ferguson's has been based in Vancouver for decades, with fully licensed, insured, bondable employees. A picture of their moving truck on the Lions Gate Bridge around the 1940s or 50s is in the paperwork that is provided by an estimator. Juville has been our estimator for years and are glad that she's still with the company all these years. Their packing, blanketing and securing of all items is of the highest professional quality. Not a single surface is left exposed. Others have told me stories that other companies never even blanketed items like a tempered glass table, fragile items and just executing sub standard lazy work ethic. All fears and concerns are laid to rest with Ferguson's, and there will never be another moving company we would ever use. We support them as much as we canto excel in being the best moving company ever." ... See MoreSee Less
