While Coal Harbour has its share of condo developments the area is primarily commercial and gives way to the south and east to the city’s financial district and its towering office skyscrapers. Coal Harbour proper is a relatively narrow strip of land that hugs the waterfront and also borders the West End. Coal Harbour is home to numerous luxury hotels, large commercial companies, a renowned marina, the city’s world-class convention centre and a number of tourist attractions. From the promenade next to the convention centre you can see the snow-capped peaks of Cathedral and Pinecone mountains in the distance.
The streets of Coal Harbour tend to be wide and beautifully maintained as you would expect. They also tend to drop in elevation from West Georgia Street – which represents the western edge of the neighbourhood – to the waterfront in the east and north. Since so many foreign travellers stay in hotels in the area or visit it for recreational purposes, keeping up appearances in Coal Harbour is important to the city. As such moving companies operating in the area are going to encounter restrictions they wouldn’t find in other areas. When taken as a whole then the area presents some unique challenges for Coal Harbour moving companies.

Some might think that moving commercial clients in and out of Coal Harbour is easy since big companies will have their own loading docks. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. And when it’s not, on-street parking must be arranged beforehand with the city. Even after obtaining the proper permits, however, other factors germane to the area need to be taken into consideration as well. Those factors include the terrain and the wind; which can be formidable at times as it comes in off the water and swirls about at street level between the buildings. Traffic jams around the convention centre can also conspire against moving companies in Coal Harbour. And rush hour traffic – something that is largely a non-issue in places like the West End – is also in play here. As such finding moving companies with the experience necessary to deal with all these factors is important.
