Ironman Hopes Dashed But Kamloops Looks to Move Forward

We were hoping to see this scene in the Thompson River next year

Our Kamloops moving company kept a watchful eye on Kamloops’ bid to host the 2013 Ironman Canada triathlon. In addition to great exposure for the city of Kamloops as a whole, it certainly would have kept our Kamloops Moving and Storage company on its toes as the next summer season approached. Anytime a big event like that takes place in the region our Kamloops storage facilities are booked up to accommodate the short term needs of the temporary residents. However, as announced this week, the city failed to secure the bid.

The Season of the Bear

As the summer winds down for the season (someone forgot to tell the weather) bears prepare for their season long slumber. When this happens, they stock up on food preserves in the same manner that us humans do before holiday season kicks in. But these feral grocery shoppers will be coming around the mountain and into our community to stock their bellies full.

The exceptionally warm summer saw an outbreak of bear sightings from the Nicola Valley to Kamloops region. BC Wildlife Park and McArthur Island Park has been owned by our thick furred neighbors through August and campers had to keep eyes and ears open day and night. Experts anticipate even more bear activity in and around Kamloops for the month of September and although incidences will likely remain uneventful for the most part (unless you disturb cubs) Kamloops residents should be mindful.

So what does this have to do with our Kamloops moving company blog?

Protect Your Possessions During DRY Season Too

It wasn’t long ago that we posted an article about protecting your household possessions during excessive rain season high-water advisories by keeping them in our Kamloops storage facility. Now here we are on the tail end of summer hearing news about campfire bans in the Kamloops area.

The last two months have been drought inducing weeks with barely a drop of rain in sight and while Kamloops tourism is beaming from tourists gracing the city to play on the rolling hilled golf courses and to cool off by taking dips in the Thompson River, the terrain surrounding Kamloops remains susceptible to forest fires. While campfire bans serve their purpose in preventing man-made blazes little can be done to lessen the concern over thunderstorm warnings. The forecast for the next week or so remains sunny with chances of isolated thundershowers which are accompanied by periods of lightning. This scenario creates concern over forest fires and residents with homes in the warning zones are keeping a watchful eye on the sky and landscape.

Living in a Fresh Water Fisher’s Paradise

Fresh water fishing is a big deal in Kamloops. In fact, it’s most likely the Thompson Country region’s favorite pastime and the Kamloops area lakes are known to be the best fly fishing lakes in BC. Some will say the best in the country. Our Kamloops moving company won’t disagree with that statement because when we’re not busy moving Kamloops residents into their new homes you can find us out on the lakes, with the rest of the locals.

As more than just a Kamloops mover, Pioneer Moving & Storage would like to share a few points about how we can help fishing enthusiasts with the transportation and storage logistics of fishing in Kamloops:

Short Term Storage Solution for High Water Advisories

Kamloops is currently enjoying its customary warm and sunny mid-summer season as July carries on towards August. June now seems like a distant memory.

Last month saw larger than normal rainfall and the snow melt from the long winter season previous resulted in rising water levels of the Thompson River. Homeowners living along its borders kept a watchful eye on the river and made preparations to protect their possessions. Many held off on summer vacation plans until the concern subsided. While both locals and tourists are now basking in the river for watersports and recreational activities, residents continue to look for solutions to ease their concerns during high water advisories. Pioneer Moving & Storage has one solution.

Here’s how well planned short term storage can be a wise solution for protecting your household possessions during flood advisories:

Liquidate to Lighten Your Load Before a Move

 

The Outdoor Life Network (OLN) unveiled a new summer show this week called The Liquidator featuring Jeff Schwarz, a local Kamloops BC resident who runs a Liquidation business on the coast. Jeff could be seen over the years rummaging through garage and yard sales in our home town in search of rusty treasure and he turned his passion for the hunt into a full blown career. This recent televised event sparked our introductory blog – Liquidating to Lighten Your Load Before a Move -with a Yard Sale.

Summertime yard sales are a great way to minimize packing while earning some cash to put towards your move. Here’s how:
