North Vancouver sits on the opposite side of Burrard Inlet from its larger and better-known namesake and is the most urbanized of the municipalities that occupy the area between Burrard and the foothills of the North Shore Mountains. Although the amount of commuting that occurs between North Vancouver and Vancouver itself is mostly limited to what the ferry can accommodate the city is nonetheless categorized as a suburb of Vancouver. Those who move to North Vancouver are typically drawn by the incredible natural beauty and its proximity to the larger city. While the characteristic that stands out most to moving companies in North Vancouver is probably the decidedly hilly terrain.
Relocating to North Vancouver has been popular since the mid-19th century when loggers settled in what was then known as Moodyville (now Moodyville Park). They were there to take advantage of the seemingly endless stands of fir trees combined with the outstanding natural harbour. Today, moving companies in North Vancouver don’t handle a lot of loggers but they regularly move business and residential customers seeking to take advantage of both the proximity to the larger city and the myriad opportunities for outdoor adventure. The topography is not one any moving company in North Vancouver is thrilled about as it rises steadily from Waterfront Park into the foothills of the Pacific Range at 29th street. Gradients on the North/South roads can be severe in places and navigating a large, heavily laden moving truck through them requires experience and a steady hand.
