Typical Employee Mover

Typical Employee Mover

  • Low wage labourer
  • Damage prone
  • Doesn't care about you

Most movers are unhappy

Low wages, no benefits or security, and brutally hard work make moving a last choice career. Employee movers are often unhappy and unskilled transient workers with a poor attitude. Labor regulations are generally ignored and the worker is given little motivation to work hard.

Owner Operator Mover

Owner Operator Mover

  • Skilled and efficient
  • Pays for his mistakes
  • Commitment & trust

Attitude is everything

Owner Operator Movers love their work because they make great money and are their own bosses. They get to choose their helpers, who are often good friends or family and the entire team takes pride in their work. Owner Operators are happy movers, a rare thing in the moving industry.

My moving career started a few years ago with deliveries and small moves. It didn’t take long before my services were in high demand. I decided to go into business with a friend of mine, who is also an OO mover. Thanks to our excellent moving skills and outstanding rates of customer satisfaction our company quickly grew and I was able to branch out with my own company in Burnaby.

In 2017 I began working as a long-haul truck driver handling various types of furniture transportation in the USA. In 2020 I moved to Abbotsford where I began working as a mover for other moving companies. It was then that I realized the potential I had in this industry. I took the leap and bought my own truck and hired my own crew.

GOLD STAR MOVER

Anyone can say they are a mover and it is true anyone can pick up a box, but real movers pride themselves on moving difficult objects. Hot tubs, pool tables, pianos, and safes are where a mover displays his experience most. Every time we encounter these types of jobs it is important there is a master mover on site to supervise or big problems and big mistakes happen.

I started my moving career doing deliveries for Ikea but quickly decided to move on up to becoming a professional mover. I started working for a different Owner Operator and managed to learn quite a bit, not just about how to do the job, but how to do the job well. I saw how much I could make by striking out on my own, as long as I kept up excellent standards of service. This led decided to buy my own truck, start my own business, and join Owner Operator Movers myself.

GOLD STAR MOVER

I started working in construction here in Vancouver and developed an appreciation of hard physical work. When I started moving I found it filled that same spot in my life, exercise every day, but was much more interesting. I get to work somewhere new every day and have a different challenge at every jobsite. It took only 3 months of working as an employee mover to decide that I wanted to belong to Owner Operator Movers Vancouver.

PRO MOVER

The satisfaction I have gained in creating a stress-free moving environment for every customer while running countless stairs and carefully transporting their contents through tight hallways have really helped me understand and manage our friendly movers as efficiently as possible.

Many people we move have too much stuff and they give it to us. It seems I can always find a home for good castoffs within my circle of friends. My friends love the free stuff I bring home. I don’t know how many beds and couches I have passed forward in my career. I don’t think I have ever purchased a new piece of furniture in my life.

One time I moved a gigantic globe of the Earth into the lobby of a building in downtown Vancouver. The material made it tough to get ahold of and pick up, and it couldn’t be rolled because it had delicate mountain ranges sticking out. Eventually we got it wrapped in massive pads and resting on padded runners. This let us start to maneuver it into then out of the truck. I’m still proud to have pulled this move off without even minor damages.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

Vancouver Local Movers

Owner Operator Movers began as local West End and East Van movers over 36 years ago, but today we have movers all over the Lower Mainland. Currently our busiest areas are Surrey and Langley but we also have movers on the North Shore working in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. Our movers in the Richmond group serve Ladner, Delta, and White Rock. The Tri-City movers team, based out of Coquitlam, also serve in Maple Ridge, Burnaby, and New Westminster. Up the Fraser Valley, our Abbotsford movers serve customers from Vancouver to Chilliwack.

Our Vancouver team is very experienced and professional. Most of our moves are household moves, apartment moves, and condominiums, but we are also very good at smaller moves from senior homes or working for stagers, decorator's, and movie production companies. We can also service all types of office moves, commercial moves, and deliveries.

BC Movers

Moving to another city in BC from Vancouver does not have to be an expensive, long-distance move. Our local crews can take you to Vancouver Island, the Okanagan, or the Sunshine Coast at economical local move rates. Long-distance movers will charge you much more because they have huge trucks and many expenses for traveling that are unnecessary for moves within Southern British Columbia.

When we take a customer to Victoria or Kelowna, we find the cheapest way to move is to load up the day before and then leave early in the morning before traffic. This approach avoids overnight charges for your crew. We take you to your new home and return the same day. Efficiency and good logistics are key to keeping your move cost affordable.

BC to Alberta Movers

The so called “Triangle Run” between BC and Alberta has long been a feature offered by the OO movers team. We have runs twice a month (and weekly in summer) between Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton. Often, we also carry cargo for Alberta customers to Victoria and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Because we have offices in all of our destination cities, we are able to support a regular scheduled system that keeps the cost low.

Moving between provinces is generally done in large trucks where your cargo is consolidated with several other clients to make the cost affordable for all. Because we ship so often we are usually able to carry your goods direct from your house to your new location without any costly extra warehousing and handling. We offer very competitive per-pound rates and outstanding service to help you relocate to your new province.

Canadian Movers

Cross Canada movers are almost all experienced movers that have worked their way up to owning and operating their own trucks. Most long distance movers are Owner Operators but only a few of them belong to our organization, OO movers. Many of the rest haul for the big van lines who charge you a lot and keep most of the money for themselves. Our mission is to connect the consumer direct as possible to the men who actually do the work and build a positive relationship where the client saves money and the mover makes more. That sounds impossible, but it doesn’t need to be if you take the big boss man or brand name out of the picture.

Owner Operator Movers Vancouver has partners who regularly carry cargo between BC and Ontario, Toronto, Montreal and Eastern Canada. If your move is big or small give us a call and we will provide you with a fixed price long distance moving quote better than any.

Vancouver Packing Service

Packing is the hardest part of moving and takes more time and effort than the average person has in their busy life. Our crews are experienced at packing and can make this painful task happen quickly and efficiently. Whether you just want us to pack a few treasures, the kitchen, or your entire home, our skilled packers will work with you to keep the cost low and take as little time as possible.

Our Vancouver Owner Operator movers are family men and care about the future of our planet so we encourage packing with used boxes and reusable plastic tubs if possible. Even the most efficient recycling system is not as green as directly reusing materials. Plastic tubs can be rented and many stores (Especially grocery and liquor stores) give away free boxes that can be reused for moving. Take advantage of the chance to save money and help save the planet!
