- Apr 16 2019, Zabrina L, Ottawa

My initial impressions with my call was they were well organized and able to give me a specific peice for my move, when the load up crew arrived they were awesome, very nice, finished very quickly! Unfortunately my belongings switched hands a few times before delivery so that became very confusing. They also tried to deliver it 7 days early than expected, then changed that to the next day, which I informed them would not work. The delivery date was changed two more times after that, neither of which were the original delivery date my contract was supposed to be for. My boxes were very banged up, everything was jostled around inside, but thankfully nothing important was broken. One of my wheels is missing and a week later I've heard nothing productive from the last driver I spoke to, so I'll have to just go to the brick and get a new one. Overall I have a mixed view of this experience.

Thank goodness I have a job that requires me to burn endless calories

If I was not a mover with OO movers Kelowna, I would be twice my size. I love to eat and food only comes in large sizes for me. Thank goodness I have a job that requires me to burn endless calories. I tried to do the math once and the multi thousand calorie burn of a three story walkup mover was staggering. So send me your hard work and keep the pizza coming.

Moving keeps me interested because I get to meet new people and visit new places every day.

I started moving nearly 20 years ago. For the first while I worked with 12 different companies and learned a lot about the industry, but then decided to open up my own business. I bought my first truck a decade ago and am still going strong. Moving keeps me interested because I get to meet new people and visit new places every day.

Even though my truck is old, I am not and I can move you quickly and safely. Let me show you what owner operator attitude and motivation is all about.

Now today I have a strong base of repeat customers

I moved to Kelowna to enjoy the good life in BC’s best resort town and it has proven to be a good choice. I started my own moving company here after working with my brother on a truck in Vancouver for six years. Now today I have a strong base of repeat customers and steady work with my partners at OO movers Kelowna. I look forward to moving here in the OK valley for a long time to come.

Because I enjoyed the freedom and the strong physical labor

I first started moving because I needed work and money. It was a good job for me because I enjoyed the freedom and the strong physical labor. A few years ago I inherited a sizable amount of money and almost stopped moving. It was not long before I missed the exercise and fresh air of the job and returned to it even though I may not be so hungry for money.

On my last paycheck they even paid me double

What I always liked about working with the OO movers group is that they took care of my money so well. Ask any experienced mover and he will tell you stories of moving companies that cheated him. The Owner Operator group is always correct and fair when it comes to money and always err in the movers favour. On my last paycheck they even paid me double.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

Send me to the big city so I can enjoy coming home

Ottawa Local Movers

There are many local moving companies in Ottawa even though it is a smaller town. That is a phenomena all over coastal BC and Vancouver Island. Everyone wants to live in paradise. Once a long distance mover from back East sees this place, they tend to bring their family and truck on their next trip.

Ottawa is a local town and people know each other. You don’t need to hire a national corporate van line like big city people do just because you don't know anyone local. You can call us, your friendly, local owner operators. We will give you personalized service along with all the security and guarantees of the big corporation. We can move you in Qualicum Beach, Parksville, Ladysmith and Chemainus at local rates. Also, our local move crews just love those ferry rides so be sure to give us a chance to quote on your move to Vancouver and beyond.

BC Movers

If you are moving anywhere on Vancouver Island or Southern BC our Nanaimo movers can help you out at rates you can afford. One of our clever methods we use to keep your cost down is to load you up the afternoon before and then we are on the road very early the next day. We can move you to Victoria or Vancouver and get back the same day. We can even stretch this technique as far away as Kelowna.

Of course moving up island to Courtenay / Comox or Campbell River is all in an easy days work for us but nothing is more fun for a mover than a move to the true West coast at Tofino or to the wilds of Port Hardy. Please give a call to quote on your move anywhere in BC.

BC to Alberta Movers

OO movers has trucks that travel the “Triangle Route” between Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton every two weeks year round and weekly in the summer. Because of our offices in each city, moves from Nanaimo can tap into the low rates on this regular route. We can move you directly from Nanaimo to Edmonton or Calgary.

The best system for long distance moving is to combine multiple customers’ cargo into one huge truck. This keeps the price low for everyone involved. Our local movers help tie in to the big Triangle Run trips and avoid unnecessary, and costly, storage. Take advantage of our outstanding service at our competitive per-pound long distance moving rates.

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 Nanaimo 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.

Piano Movers and Packing Service

Our movers have the strength of an elephant and the gentle touch of a butterfly

Piano Movers

Piano moving is not something to take lightly. It is the most challenging task that a mover ever has to do and contains a high risk of expensive damage and even human injury. Dropping a piano is no joke, even though it is the stuff of cartoon legend.

Not every Ottawa moving company has the ability to move pianos. Our piano movers are properly trained and equipped to move your prized instrument safely. Visit our piano movers page to meet our heros who have the skill and confidence to move the “monster pieces” like pool tables, hot tubs, safes, and pianos.

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 Ottawa 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!
