Many customers that are packing find it a great time to purge. Why bring items to your new home that you just cannot use?
We saw a great opportunity to help out the local community by donating food to the local food bank that people are purging.
When you’re moving you have no time to run an extra errand. So we are a free middle man to help you and the food bank.
Simply pack a separate box with any unwanted non perishable food items and we will collect them on move day. We take all of the boxes back to our warehouse. Once we have accumulated a few boxes, we transport the load down to the local food bank.
On the North Shore we support the Harvest Project
In Surrey we support the Surrey Food Bank
We love win win wins with moving. Thanks to everyone for helping us fill 5 boxes of food so far this year.
Our goal for 2014 is to transport 1000 pounds of food for donation.
Any unwanted non perishable food can be put in the box. Our movers will collect the boxes and we will donate them to the food bank.
Fact: Nearly 100,000 people get assistance from food banks each month in British Columbia. Thirty- two percent of those served are children. With times getting tighter these numbers are dramatically increasing. Thousands in our community need your help.
As you are aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately a lot of this “stuff” is food that can be delivered to a family in need. That’s why Ferguson Moving & Storage has teamed up with Move For Hunger to support the Harvest Project.
Please set aside any unwanted, non-perishable food items before your move and Ferguson Moving & Storage will deliver the food to the Harvest Project.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with the relocation industry to support the efforts of local food banks. Your donations will directly impact families living right here in the Vancouver area. Ferguson Moving & is grateful for your business and truly thankful for your generosity.
In response to a cbc marketplace segment about bad movers scamming clients, Lorne MacInnes President of Ferguson moving & storage put together a 5 minute presentation for his local bni networking group. The movie trailer was designed to get people as excited about moving properly and avoiding pitfalls so many fall into.
Most people hate moving and thats why so many mistakes get made. Lorne discusses moving can actually be enjoyable if you embrace the process. Surrounding yourself with a moving company that wants to make sure you are looked after before during and after your move.

Have you heard your favourite Vancouver Movers on the radio lately?
Today marks the start of the final week of the Ferguson Moving and Storage radio campaign. For the past six weeks, we’ve been featured on some of the top radio stations here in the Lower Mainland.
– 103.5 QMFM
– 93.7 JRFM
– CKNW News Talk 980
– AM 730 All Traffic, All the Time
The support we’ve received from everyone has been great!
Both existing and potential clients have been contacting us to book moves, but also to let us know they love hearing our radio commercials on the air. We tried hard to push the emotional aspect of the moving and storage process during the campaign. We wanted everyone to know that when they use Ferguson Moving and Storage, you can trust that you will receive the highest level of professionalism start to finish. We are constantly trying to differentiate ourselves from the average Vancouver mover… hopefully this came through.
Over the coming months you will still hear us on AM 730. In the future, I’m sure we will be back on the air considering how well things went this time!
