LOCAL MOVES

family photo A to B Moving is proud to provide you with experienced local mover services for Victoria.

If you are wondering about our local move area, please contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions.

Local moving can involve moving just a few items within the same building or an entire home or business across town. We are able to provide you with a wide variety of moving services. We are flexible to meet all of your moving needs. Our customers tell us we are their Victoria mover of choice.

MOVING OUTSIDE VICTORIA?

A to B Moving provides moving services anywhere on Vancouver Island, including Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, Courtenay, and Campbell River. If you are moving to or from any location outside the Victoria area on Vancouver Island or surrounding islands, simply add $30 per hour for travel time that we are on the highway to assist in fuel costs. As an example, for a move to Courtenay, you will be charged for 3 hours to and 3 hours from = 6 hours x $30 = $180 for fuel. To estimate your approximate cost, please also include the estimated time for your move (listed above) and add ferry fees where applicable.

A FULL SERVICE MOVE INVOLVES:

  • the packing of all of your smaller possessions into boxes
  • full disassembly of such items as bed frames and mirrors on dressers
  • the loading of all boxes and furniture into our moving vans
  • the placement of all of your furniture in your new location in your new home along with all of the boxes in the room of your choice
  • reassembly of all items that we disassembled
  • unpacking all of the boxes that were packed for you and removing all packing material.


This move is generally conducted over a two-day period (size dependent) and is charged at an hourly rate based on the manpower required.

A PARTIAL SERVICE MOVE INVOLVES:

  • loading all of your furnishings (blanket wrapped) and boxes that you have already packed
  • the delivery of these items directly into your new home in the room of your choice.


Listed below are typical home sizes and the average amount of time it takes (on average) to complete a move. This includes 15 minutes travel to and from your home, loading and unloading time with average access to both pick up and destination locations.

Based on two men and a truck:

Size of Home Approximate Hours Weight
1 bedroom 3 to 4 hours 2500 - 3000 lbs
2 bedrooms 5 to 6 hours 4000 - 6000 lbs
3 bedrooms 7 to 8 hours 7000 - 9000 lbs
4 bedrooms 8 to 10 hours 10,000 - 12,000 lbs
5 bedrooms +10 hours +13,000 lbs


We charge from the time we leave the yard until we return. We are located in Esquimalt, which is located approximately 10 minutes from downtown Victoria. All of our moves are calculated to the nearest quarter hour.

This is the most common type of move our clients choose. It will easily suit your individual needs. If you need us to disassemble and reassemble mirrors on dressers, bed frames, legs on dining room tables, or desks, we are fully equipped to assist. If you choose to disassemble and and reassemble these items yourself, you save time which results in a lower cost to you.

We have put together some additional information for you about move sizes here.

BOOKING YOUR MOVE

Remember to book your local move as far in advance as possible, especially if you are moving mid-month or at month end. These time periods are the most popular and book quickly. Although local moving is charged on an hourly rate, firm quotes can be provided for larger moves that occur between the 3rd and 27th of each month.
