Vancouver Movers Tips for Part Time Residents

Moving tips for part time residents

Are your suitcases by the door more often than not? You may be a part time resident

As the summer season winds down our Vancouver moving company is reminded about the relatively large number of part time residents that we have living here in Greater Vancouver. Some of them are Empty Nesters or Well-to-Do couples that love the spring and summer in Vancouver but flee south (far south) of the border when the rain and autumn chill begins to creep in. They take up residence in a property somewhere in Southern California or elsewhere where the climate is conducive to year round golf and patio martinis. Others may work overseas but also have an office in Vancouver where they operate from 6 months out of the year. Some are worldly travelers that keep a home in the city but prefer to spend the bulk of their days exploring the rest of the planet, months at a time. No matter the scenario or city, Best Choice Moving is here to offer some sound household advice for part time residents.
