Vancouver Moving Company Publishes Blog on How to Utilize Municipal Junk Moving Services

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 22, 2017) - Vancouver moving company publishes blog on junk removal services offered by different municipalities

As a Vancouver moving company, the professionals at Ferguson Moving & Storage know that moving is the ideal time to tame your inner hoarder. While many homeowners are willing to pay a moving company like Got Junk?, there may be a more cost-effective way at your disposal.

Many Metro Vancouver cities offer free pick up of junk clear out. These services are limited, so it may be still necessary to hire a junk company for the rest. However, since many of these companies charge by item or volume, knowing how to utilize the free services first can still result in significant savings.

The blog goes on to detail the junk removal services offered by different municipalities. For example, the City of Burnaby offers a large item and appliance pick-up program. Mattresses are eligible in Burnaby, but not in Delta, so it's important to understand specific municipal rules. In most cases, items can be left on a curb. People who live in an apartment or other shared residence may have to make arrangements to get items to a special area, which may require some heavy lifting!

Besides Burnaby, the article contains information and links for Delta, New Westminster, Richmond, Surrey, Coquitlam, and Vancouver.

The blog concludes with a list of handy tips to keep in mind about junk removal:

  • City junk removal services are not full service. Items will have to be sorted and toted to the curbside. If full service is preferable, it's best you hire a junk removal company to help you out
  • Services may not coincide with your moving dates, so double check schedules
  • Certain items may be banned and need to be personally carted to the dump or recycling centre
  • Commercial junk like car parts or renovation junk will not be accepted
  • There are large fines illegal dumping, so don't try it

Remember, bylaws can change at any time. It's always best to call your municipality for the most recent updates regarding large item pick-up. Then, when it's time to schedule the move itself, call Ferguson Moving & Storage at 604-922-9391 or request a quote online.
