White Rock is a small, affluent community that was once part of Surrey but which broke off from its parent city in 1957 over a dispute about the distribution of development resources. White Rock today is one of the most developed urban areas in British Columbia with virtually every square meter of the city (save for those areas designated as parks) occupied by a business or residence and many of those residences going for millions of dollars. As development took off in the 1990s relocating to White Rock became popular with young families and well to do retired persons. Today waterfront property in White Rock is some of the most desirable real estate in British Columbia and each year it seems new sales records are set in the area.
Although the city covers a scant 2 square miles both residential and commercial moving companies in White Rock are kept busy. Those moving companies in White Rock need to be expert at handling the city’s intense terrain. That terrain rises sharply from the waterfront back up to about Blackburn Ave where it levels off some before the border with Surrey one block north. White Rock can be a challenge for both business and residential movers not only because of the roadway gradients but because parking in the waterfront area along Marine Drive is virtually non-existent. In fact it’s a struggle to find parking anywhere in White Rock, including in the city’s minute ‘downtown’ near Johnston and North Bluff Roads.

The fact that the people of White Rock have been able to carve such a successful municipality out of an area that’s only about 50% larger than Central Park in New York is remarkable and a testament to the imagination and foresight of the residents. That said, when you hire business or residential moving companies in White Rock you need to be sure they know what they’re doing. They should have plenty of experience working on such often extreme grades, understand the importance of coordinating with city hall when it comes to residential moving in White Rock along the waterfront and be willing to put nearly as much effort into planning the move as executing it.
