The Tide Rugby Program and a Moving Company in Victoria BC

November 25, 2015

Dear Barry’s Moving and Storage

On behalf of the Junior Tide Rugby program, I would like to extend our most sincere appreciation for your generous financial support this past summer.

You assisted in not only reducing overall player costs for each athlete by over 28%, the Tide Board was also able to assist 8 players with significant individual cost reductions or fee exemptions to those who otherwise would not have been able to take part due to financial limitations.

Decluttering a Lifetime of Belongings

There is a lot more to moving than simply calling your moving company. Moving house from your lifelong home to a smaller house, apartment or retirement community can be daunting. Downsizing can be emotionally challenging because we are essentially getting rid of our history.

Home moving can be stressful

We all know that moving to a new residence is going to be stressful. "The general sense of confusion and disorder can make moving both physically and emotionally stressful. While packing, moving, dusting, and sorting take a toll on energy and attention, short tempers and chaos drain the emotions." (Oesterreich, Lesia (April 2004). "Understanding children: moving to a new home". Iowa State University.)
