Nanaimo Movers

Complete unpacking usually takes people about a week.

People often seem to forget about their pets when they are caught up in the chaos of planning a move. It’s good to have a suitable carrying case for your pet if they aren’t used to being in cars and you should make sure to keep some of their food out if the move is a long one. At the very least, carefully labelled boxes will help to find your pet’s bed and food quickly that night as complete unpacking usually takes people about a week.

Qualicum Movers

It is a lot of fun moving happy people

Most of my moves are in Nanaimo but because I live in Qualicum Beach I get all the moves up this way in Parksville and Courtenay Comox. For me, the best part of moving is to get to see into so many different homes and properties here in the island. There are many fantastic homes hidden in the forest and on the coast. It is a lot of fun moving happy people into their dream homes.

Parksville Movers

Nanaimo is in the center so I get a lot of intercity moves

Small town local moving here in Parksville is mostly what I do but the highlight of living in a town that is a major ferry terminal is how often I get to go to the mainland and then carry goods all over the island. Nanaimo is in the center so I get a lot of intercity moves from the OO movers group. If you have a ferry move please call me. I am a master of not wasting your paid hours waiting in a ferry terminal.

Victoria Movers

I could never do a sit down office job!

Moving appeals to me because it keeps me young. I’ve been moving in Victoria for nearly 20 years, but feel like I could keep going forever. The toughest job I’ve ever done was a piano move from a third floor room. One of the straps broke as we were going down the stairs, but we managed to carefully guide the piano out of the house without a scratch. I could never do a sit down office job.

In Victoria the traffic is more manageable and it just seems that people are more easy going

Like other OO movers members here who love Victoria, I am an import from the east. I come all the way from Vancouver! I enjoy moving here better than in Vancouver because in Victoria the traffic is more manageable and it just seems that people are more easy going. I have heard it said that Victoria is like Vancouver 40 years ago. I was not around then, but if this is time travel I am loving it.

I like having multiple short moves in one day

I like having multiple short moves in one day. Doubling up takes the best part of moving (going places and meeting people) and packs twice as much of it into your day. The flip side is that you only have half the time to adapt to the unique challenges presented by each move, like broken elevators and surprise extra rooms full of boxes. There is also a time crunch on the morning move because suddenly you have a hard deadline to reach in the afternoon, but the extra stress is worth it.

I am probably Victoria’s happiest mover

I feel just having the privilege of living in Victoria rather than any other city in Canada is the best part of my job here with OOmovers Victoria. I have lived in Ontario and Alberta which each have their charms but to work outside here on on spring day is a magical experience compared to the heat and cold of interior Canada. I am probably Victoria’s happiest mover.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

Nothing better than getting paid to ride the ferry

Nanaimo Local Movers

There are many local moving companies in Nanaimo 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.

Nanaimo 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

When we pack for you the rule is “If you break it you buy it”

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 Nanaimo 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 Nanaimo 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!
