As a Greater Vancouver moving company we have gained much insight into the mindset of family households as they move into a wide variety of residential properties throughout the Lower Mainland. Because we consider the relocation industry a part of the broad real estate process itself, Best Choice Moving & Storage continues to provide our readers with advice on many decisions related to their up and coming household moves. In this week’s post we look at high-rise condos and weigh in as to whether or not these towering residences are in fact a good match for family units. Without keeping you in suspense, we can tell you right off the bat that for some of you, a high-rise may very well be your best option when it comes to relocating your family into a new home.

How to Keep Construction Noise Out of Your Home

Vancouver-Moving-Construction-Noise

If you have recently moved into a newer Greater Vancouver house or condo the chances are pretty good that you have found yourself right smack in the middle of a construction zone. The Lower Mainland is filled with construction sites that evidence the population growth of the region. We have talked to many households about the experience of moving into a condo with a nice view, only to find out that within weeks of moving that nice wide open space fronting their patio has been parked with bulldozers, excavators, and backhoe loaders while a crane begins to reach for the sky. This is a typical Vancouver problem – noise pollution experienced from moving next to a construction lot. What is one to do?

In our continuous endeavor to help our clients and prospective customers with all things related to the relocation process and home-living in general, we’ve provided a few helpful tips to help you get through the noise when you are living next to a temporary construction site in Vancouver.

3 Things to Do When Moving to a New City When Your Condo isn’t Complete

Moving-into-an-Unfinished-Condo

Excuse the long-winded title to this week’s blog post but it is necessary. You see, this may not be the most common problem for individuals and households moving to a new city, but it is indeed problem for more people than you may think. How often do you see “under-construction” conjoined condominium/commercial development projects with a big sign on the exterior fence stating a completion date that has already passed months ago? Quite a bit, right? Now imagine all of the owners that pre-purchased these properties on that promise. Then imagine those few that have set the wheels in motion to move from another city for a new career (etc…) and have depended upon the slated date of completion to begin their new life.

The issues that lead to the delays in completing a condo development can practically leave new owners arriving from out of town on the street if they have no contingency plan in place. For those select few our Greater Vancouver moving company has provided key tips for what to do when this happens to you.
