The guys did a fantastic job packing and moving us in and out of our home, they took great care with all of our furniture including fragile items. They showed up on time and finished everything in a timely manner. We are repeat customers and would highly recommend Ferguson for moving and storage services. Ivan (missing from the attached photo) handled our packing the day prior to our move in a professional, courteous and efficient manner.

Follow up: Was texting back and forth with Lorne, who genuinely seemed to care with my experience and we came up with a resolution on a partial refund for the work completed. You truly know a company's reputation when they satisfy a customer's expectations after a problem. This is where many companies will turn their back on a client to forever lose their business and future referrals. I would definitely recommend Lorne and Ferguson Moving and Storage for a future move. Thank you for changing the mind of a unsatisfied customer to a happy one. Update: Received a very nice text from Lorne that he'll look into the situation. It's nice to be heard especially and have someone...let alone the President of the company reach out to you. I think it more important when you have an issue and have it resolved because you know the company cares and stands behind their commitment to service. It's my hard earned money and these are the companies I generally deal with. Used Ferguson Moving and storage for a move from our townhouse in Port Coquitlam to Kelowna included packing and unpacking. Over $20K only unpacked a few boxes leaving 40-50 unpacked. Wasn't impressed.

So very HAPPY regarding our recent experience with these three guys at Ferguson Moving & Storage. They displayed a level of care and professionalism that was extremely appreciated and made us feel at ease as well as in good hands. They were also very kind and pleasant to work with. A big thank you also to Juville who has been super accommodating and supportive.

I would highly recommend Ferguson Moving! I was referred to them by a friend of mine who also did their move and I was not disappointed! I also picked up their packing service and as a disabled person, it really helped to cut down on the stress of moving. I will definitely choose them again for any future needs.

We needed help fast; they were on time, did an excellent job, no muss no fuss, reasonable pricing, and when we needed a "dump run" at the last moment, they took care of that too. Such a lifesaver, highly recommend!

Would highly recommend this company for complex moving.These men were professional, efficient, safe and protected our equipment. The company estimator Julie was realistic and helped guide our needs appropriately. She came on site twice rather than phone quotes. This is absolutely necessary when you have pieces of unusual size. The company as a whole was willing to adapt to all of our unique needs in moving our clinic from a basement into a third level new location. We even had to move this up a week and do move in on Saturdays due to limited access to building elevators. We were really happy with our group led by Sioban. Thank you for a seamless transition Ferguson! Your Changepain clinic team

Moving and Storage FAQs

Frequently Asked Moving Questions

A: To estimate your move we encourage you to fill out our Online Estimate Form.  Alternatively, you can give us a Call. We will visit you to evaluate the amount of inventory and packing work needed. This visit is FREE of charge and is part of our total service package. We also offer new virtual video assessments, so you can record a video (with your cell phone) of your inventory and we can get you a quote based on that.

A: Reputable movers should have an established place of business, license and insurance. It is not wise to use a mover who is new to the business.

 

They may not know what they’re doing, or even worse, they may be scammers.

 

You want a mover who has been in business for a while, and who knows the business. You should ask your mover to supply you with a few references. A satisfied customer is the best sales tool for a mover.

A: We recommend that all clothes and items be removed from inside the furniture, including desks, dressers, armoires, etc. This makes the furniture much lighter and easier to move. It also limits wear and tear to your furniture during the move.

 

Generally the only items of furniture that can be safely moved with items still in them are small light pieces of furniture containing very light belongings inside.

 

Be careful NOT to leave fragile items and anything that might spill or leak.

A: Like all other service businesses, tipping is not required. If you choose to, a tip is appreciated for a job well done. Leaving a 5-star review is also a great way to show your appreciation for the movers hard work.

A: Ferguson Moving & Storage does not charge extra for moving pianos.

 

Piano moves and any other extraordinarily heavy furniture are all charged the same way that regular moves are charged.

 

We have professional piano movers with years of piano moving experience.

A: We at Ferguson, will always honour our moving commitments regardless of weather. Unpredictable weather might slow down the job but weather is unavoidable.

 

If your move occurs on a day where the weather is acting up our movers will take precautions to protect floors and carpeting from excess dirt and soil.

A: If you have chosen to pack your own belongings and have hired us just to move you, there is a chance that some items still need to be packed.

 

Most drivers carry a small assortment of boxes and materials to pack the contents of your home. However, these boxes are not free. Ferguson Moving & Storage can provide all the supplies you need. However, if you want to pack your belongings before the move, you can order some packing materials here.

We do not recommend getting boxes from your local liquor/grocery store. These boxes are often flimsy and costs more in labour to move them because the movers need to make more trips back and forth to the truck.

Always use double corrugated boxes, not single. The stronger your boxes, the better.

A: If there is a choice, avoid the summer, beginning or end of the month or winter holidays. The heaviest demands are placed on vans, equipment and personnel during these periods. However, you should move when it’s most convenient for you. Factors involved in the decision may include:

  • Whether the move must be made immediately.
  • Transferring children during the school term.
  • Separation of the family while the move is under way.

If the move can be scheduled for a time when vans and trained personnel are most readily available, we’ll be better equipped to meet your preferred delivery schedule.

A: Most people prefer to have their household possessions professionally packed by a moving company. However, if you decide to pack these items yourself, remember the basic principles of good packing, such as wrapping the items individually to provide plenty of cushioning.

 

Be sure to select a sturdy container with a lid. Place a layer of crushed paper on the bottom of the carton as a cushion. Wrap each item individually with a soft material to provide a safe, protective “padded nest.” Pack the heaviest items on the bottom, empty ones next, filling in empty spaces with crushed paper. Place plates on edge and glassware on rims for maximum protection.

 

Mark the carton “Fragile” and list the contents on the outside. Be sure to seal the carton with tape. Cartons, paper, tape and other packing materials may be purchased here for a very modest cost.

A: Ferguson Moving & Storage cannot accept responsibility for safely moving your plants because they may suffer from a lack of water and light, as well as probable temperature changes while in transport. You may prefer to transport your house plants in the family car.
A: Pets cannot be carried on the moving van. Dogs, cats, and birds should be transported in the family car.
A: We strongly recommend that you carry irreplaceable and expensive articles with you, or make other arrangements for their transport.
 

A: Tariff provisions require that all charges be paid before your shipment is unloaded at destination (unless prior arrangements have been made for later billing).

 

Payment for your move can be made by one of the following methods: Cash Visa, Mastercard or Certified Cheque may be used.

A: The earlier, the better. It’s wise to give your moving company 4 to 6 weeks notice, if possible. The more lead time you can give, the more likely we will be able to meet your delivery schedule.

 

You should discuss your specific pickup and delivery requirements with your Move Manager, who can advise you of the types and costs of services available.

A: Before your possessions are packed and loaded, it is important that you understand which items cannot be shipped because they represent a hazard or are perishable.

 

Listed below are some common non-allowable items that you will need to address prior to your pack and load dates:

 

Hazardous Materials are items that are flammable, corrosive or explosive. These are non-transportable items.

 

Hazardous materials can include, but are not limited to, explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives and radioactive materials.

 

Common examples of hazardous materials include:

    • Gasoline
    • Propane Cylinders
    • Paints and Paint Thinners
    • Lighter fluid
    • Nail Polish Remover
    • Fireworks
    • Oxygen Bottles
    • Automotive Repair and Maintenance Chemicals and Solvents
    • Radio-Pharmaceuticals
    • Matches

 

Miscellaneous items that are non-transportable include:

  • Firearms
  • Perishable Food and Food Stored in Glass Jars and Containers
  • Prescription Drugs (specifically, those that may be needed immediately and should be within reach)
    •  

 

Personal or Irreplaceable Belongings. Bring these items with you in your car or carry them on your persons during the move.

    • Cash
    • Collections (stamp collections, coin collections, cards, etc.)
    • Family Photos
    • Important Personal Papers (i.e., deeds, wills, passport, birth certificates, etc.)
    • Negotiable Papers (i.e., bonds, stocks, certificates)
    • Jewelry
    • Moving Documents (bill of lading, rights and responsibilities, etc.)

 

Before packing up your home, separate these non-transportable items from the rest of your household goods to be packed. Not only are these items dangerous to your movers and their safety, but they are also items that are easily purchased at your new location. For those high-value or personal items, these often cannot be replaced at all, so it’s important to keep these items with you.

 

Use these tips on non-transportable items and benefit from a safe, more organized move.
