Moving is not an easy task, we all understand that. But without the right equipment a tough job can turn into an impossible one. At Metro Vancouver Movers our trucks carry all the necessary moving equipment to get a job done quickly, and safely. The following is a list of some of the equipment our team brings with them on EVERY move.

Moving Blankets:

Moving Blankets or pads are the most critical of any moving equipment. Despite the advance of other wrapping material, the moving blankets remains the most effective at protecting your furniture. Almost all moving companies in Vancouver carry plenty of moving blankets in their moving truck. However, we use just the heavy duty moving blankets that are thicker than normal ones, that prevent damage of almost any wrapped items.

Moving Straps:

We use polyethylene straps to secure your valuables in place during transport. Also, they come in different varieties to assist in properly lifting mattresses, and other awkward items.


Dollies are, also, some of the most important moving equipment for conducting a safe move. Our skilled movers in Vancouver have a wide variety of dollies that make moving all residential move a breeze and stress free. In fact, we carry 2 wheel and 4 wheel dollies in each moving truck. Also, we use specialty dollies like chairs dollies that allow for quick and easy moves.

Piano Dollies or piano pallet:

We are extremely proud of the fact that we are one of the most specialized piano moving companies British Columbia. We have specially designed different piano pallets. Our skilled piano movers in Vancouver, greater Vancouver, and Fraser Valley have moved pianos that vary enormously in type and size; grand or baby. We have the expertise and the right equipment for moving your piano.

Specialty Moving Equipment:

Time is important in any move. Our moving crew arrives fully prepared to disassemble any furniture fast and efficiently. Tables and bed frames, such as Murphy beds, and cribs are, in our experience, the most common items that need careful disassembling. We have the power tools to disassemble these items in a safe way. This doesn’t only save your time and money, but also protects your valuables. As Professional moving company in Vancouver, we always carry all the necessary tools and equipment to disassemble any odd furniture. In some cases we keep those special tools and equipment in our warehouse and send them to the job site as supervisor call in a very short time. It really doesn’t matter if our team works in White Rock, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows or any place in even Fraser Valley.

Other Miscellaneous Moving Equipment:

Metro Vancouver Moves also carries with us lots of equipment that most people would not think of when moving. Some of these items include door wedges, specialty rubber bands, hooks, slings, etc. These miscellaneous tools are used as needed in your move. For instance, door wedges are required to prop open every single door so moving can be as efficient as possible. Specialty hooks and rubber bands ensure that your oversize china cabinet is secured safely when moved on dollies as well as inside the truck.
