Like its larger namesake, the area that is now Port Coquitlam was settled by the people of the First Nations many thousands of years ago. Today it is a city of some 56,000 inhabitants that hugs the north bank of the Fraser and Pitt rivers and plays host to farmlands, golf courses, high-end housing developments and abundant parklands. The city is bisected almost completely by the massive Port Coquitlam rail yards with most of the city’s industrial development clustered in the area around those yards. During the 1960s the city had a population of less than 10,000. But during the 1980s and 90s, the number of people relocating to Port Coquitlam skyrocketed and moving companies in Port Coquitlam were kept busy year-round settling new arrivals into their newly constructed homes.
Much of Port Coquitlam is comprised of relatively flat terrain. All this level ground was one reason the site was chosen to host the rail yards back at a time when Vancouver was primarily known for logging and for being the end of the line for the transcontinental railway. That level ground is music to the ears of moving companies in Port Coquitlam. Although Port Coquitlam isn’t all railroad-yard flat. There are some areas that are positively hilly with houses on roads such as Elinor Crescent often set down from street level in order to accommodate the gradient. Even so the physical effort involved in moving in Port Coquitlam is still typically less than it is in, say, North Vancouver with its overtly mountainous terrain.

The rapid development of the city during the 80s and 90s caused municipal leaders to enact often tough parking regulations aimed at ensuring every resident has a reasonable chance to park their car on the street if need be. In recent years those regulations have been tightened even further making it tougher for both commercial and residential moving companies in Port Coquitlam to do their job. But do their job they must. And with more people every year relocating to Port Coquitlam that job is going to remain a vital one.
