Richmond occupies Lulu Island between the north and south forks of the Fraser River in the Fraser River Delta just south of Vancouver. Richmond features a mixture of industrial concerns to the east, a lively business and commercial district to the north and even farmland to the south. Richmond is also the home of Vancouver International Airport. The centre of Richmond, an area shaped roughly like a square, is comprised almost exclusively of detached, single-family homes built within the past 30 years. People have been relocating to Richmond from all over the world and nearly 60% of its residents are foreign nationals.
Richmond is an affluent community that is proud it has been able to maintain its tranquil image in spite of the sometimes frenzied pace of development that occurred in the recent past. Residential Richmond has been laid out thoughtfully with main roads running north/south and east/west and local access streets winding their way through upscale developments. The topography is basically flat with subtle dips toward the water as you approach on each side. There are no significant hills that could potentially create difficulty for movers in Richmond. Moving companies in Richmond do not typically encounter issues getting around on back roads as they are typically wide and accommodating and accessing Richmond business locations is an equally trouble-free proposition.

For the most part, parking is not a significant issue for moving companies in Richmond. There is no resident parking in the city of Richmond although there are restrictions on how long one can park in certain areas and bylaws prohibiting moving a vehicle from one parking spot to another in order to get around such restrictions. The city centre, however, is a different matter and any movers in Richmond contracted to move a business there will need to obtain a parking permit should the company not have adequate off-street parking or a readily available loading platform. In general though there few logistical hurdles that moving companies in Richmond need to clear in order to be able to do their job efficiently and effectively.
