Kamloops Movers Keeping an Eye on Rising Rivers for You

It’s that time of the year when the city of Kamloops goes on official flood watch. Flood watch, is the one side-effect of enjoying both the wonderland that winter brings and the at-times sudden arrival of warm spring weather in this region where the Thompson Rivers convene.

Rare Bear Makes Kamloops Home

It looks like a polar bear, it sounds like a polar bear, but it’s not a polar bear – it’s a Kermode bear. This week our Kamloops moving company caught wind of a new resident moving to Kamloops. We weren’t too concerned about not being contacted for this job since it’s a little out of our league. A rare white furred Kermode bear cub named Clover, abandoned months ago but rescued and rehabilitated over the summer, was at first reintroduced to the wild of Central Northwestern BC near Terrace into the aptly named Great Bear Rainforest. Apparently the furry fella wanted no part of that climate or the isolation because shortly after being collared with a monitor and released he broke free from his constraints and wandered back towards civilization, closer to his human counterparts. After further consideration, Clover was deemed unfit (unwilling?) to live in the Central Northwestern BC wild and the decision was made to bring him here to the Thompson River region to live his many years to come in the welcome arms of the BC Kamloops Wildlife Park.

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.

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?

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:

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:
