Kamloops – Ol’ Fashioned Western Appeal

Kamloops has long been compared to the small yet burgeoning cities of the old west, minus the high-noon showdowns of course. Even our Kamloops moving company borrowed from such themes when branding our Kamloops moving and storage service. We wear the old western town charm comparison with pride as does the rest of our fine community.

Readers by now know that we use this Kamloops moving company blog for more than offering tips on household relocations and the like. We like to think of this page on our website as a place to come for all things related to the Kamloops community. When an individual or household is considering a move to Kamloops they need look no further than Pioneer Moving as their Welcome Wagon – that’s pure western hospitality!

Parking Puts the Brakes on Moving in Kamloops

The way some see it, THIS may be the only parking option available. Good luck relocating your business w/that trunk space.

Staff at our Kamloops Moving Company browsed local periodical The Kamloops Daily News yesterday which reported on a downtown Kamloops forum that took place this week addressing the concern over a lack of available parking in the city core of Kamloops. Neighborhood business owners, big and small, feel that there is a need to bring (i.e. build) a solution so that the public can better enter downtown Kamloops and stay to shop, dine, and enjoy other leisure activities without worrying about whether or not they will find parking to accommodate their tenure in town. As a Kamloops mover we sympathize with the business community on this matter.

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.

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.
