Burnaby is the 3rd largest city in British Columbia after its neighbours Vancouver and Surrey. Burnaby sits between those two cities and is home to many who work in the commercial office towers of Vancouver. This was one of the first of Vancouver’s suburbs to experience rapid growth during the second half of the 20th century with people moving to Burnaby from all over the country and beyond. Burnaby has more in common with Vancouver than Surrey when it comes to topography and many inhabitants in the southern part of town enjoy expansive views to the south from their hilltop locations.
Burnaby has an active mix of older homes built when the area was largely rural, newer commercial business both large and small, heavy industry and recreational areas including a number of beautiful parks and golf courses. Moving a business in Burnaby city centre is more akin to moving in Vancouver than in Surrey due to the recent surge in high rise office buildings in the area around Willingdon Ave and BC7. Burnaby has a number of big-city style parking restrictions that govern everything from the time of day you can park to the number of hours you can park in various areas. (Although, like Surrey, they do not have resident-only on-street parking.) Many of Burnaby’s parking ordinances do, however, specifically target the type of large trucks that are often used for moving big commercial companies. So movers in Burnaby need to be mindful of that.

In general, though moving companies in Burnaby are able to go about their business in a relatively straightforward fashion. Commercial companies in Burnaby tend to mostly have their own loading docks, as do the city’s numerous high-rise condominium developments. And there are few of the cramped, difficult to negotiate and often parked-up alleys you will find in downtown Vancouver itself. The terrain, however, can be a significant issue for a moving company in Burnaby, with many homes located on streets with significant grades. Such grades affect everything from the way the moving vehicle will be parked to the way it is loaded and/or unloaded.
