Vancouver To Vancouver Island Movers
Need to relocate to Vancouver Island from Vancouver? Maybe it’s because of your work, professional relocation reasons? Maybe you need to be closer to friends and family or maybe you are ready to retire? There is no better place to do this than to that location.
So you will need a Vancouver To Vancouver Island Moving Company, but how much should you pay for this? This type of move is usually billed by the hour or flat rate, the ferry fees however are always flat rate and based on the BC government rates, so we have no control over that.
How does this kind of relocation work?
How are moves from Vancouver to the island handled? Well, that will depend on your needs, but usually we like to load on the prior evening and deliver to Vancouver Island first thing in the morning. Another option is to put your stuff in storage and move it later on in the week or month when we have a consolidated shipment going either way. Loading usually takes about 3-4 hours or longer depending on truck or apartment/house/condo size, after loading up we drive to the ferry terminal and wait for the ship to show up, since these moves are billed by flat rate and not per hour, you final bill will not be affected by delays. Sailing time from Vancouver to Vancouver Island is usually about 2 hours.

General Information About Vancouver Island
460 km long with a width of 80 km, Vancouver Island is the 43rd largest island in the world, the 11th largest island in Canada and the second most populated island of the country (after the river island of Montreal). It is separated from the mainland to the east by a succession of straits, from west to east, the Strait and Queen Charlotte, the very narrow Johnstone Strait, the Strait of Georgia, large body of water that houses landward city of Vancouver and in the south, overlooking the ocean, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which separates the island from the U.S. state of Washington. The West Island is open to the Pacific.
The west coast has an exceptional rainfall and is home to an impressive temperate rain forest.
In 2002 the estimated population of 750,000 inhabitants, almost half live in Greater Victoria in the south of the island which is also the provincial capital of British Columbia. Other cities include Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Parksville, Courtenay and Campbell River.
A British naval base at Esquimalt was established in 1865, and was subsequently given to Canadians. This is the naval base in the Pacific Ocean from the Royal Canadian Navy and its second largest base after Halifax, Nova Scotia.
On its southwestern coast, the Coast Trail West is a trail of 75 km in length, across the allowance for Pacific Rim National Park.
