Owners Care

Our movers own the company. They have a vested interest in your satisfaction.

At Owner Operator Movers North and West Vancouver the men who actually do the work earn twice as much as employee movers usually get, even though we charge the same or less. It's not hard to guess which kind of mover is going to work harder and smarter for you.

Big or small, we move 'em all

I took the jump to start moving full time in 2008

I took the jump to start moving full time in 2008

I started out moving odds and ends around Vancouver in a borrowed friend’s truck as a side gig. Moving started to take up more and more of my time and I took the jump to start moving full time in 2008. I bought my own truck and started working with Owner Operator Movers. I paid off my truck in no time and never looked back.

As a teenager I learned the business working with my dad

As a teenager I learned the business working with my dad

I’ve been moving all my life. As a teenager I learned the business working with my dad. As I got older I had no doubt that becoming an Owner Operator was what I wanted to do, buy my own truck and run my own crew. Many clients call back for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th move with OO movers, asking specifically for me. I work hard and honestly love what I do. The physical labor is what I like the most and after a long day of moving I will normally hit the gym for a while before going home for the night.

I saw how much I could make by striking out on my own, as long as I kept up excellent standards of service

I saw how much I could make by striking out on my own, as long as I kept up excellent standards of service

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.

On my last paycheck they even paid me double

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.

One time I moved a gigantic globe of the Earth into the lobby of a building downtown

One time I moved a gigantic globe of the Earth into the lobby of a building downtown

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.

That old truck has completed more moves than I can count

That old truck has completed more moves than I can count

I have been moving many years out of Maple Ridge and I think I will retire this year and sell my truck to my helper Chris. He has been with me more than three years now and the Owner Operators Vancouver group can provide him with financing. That old truck has completed more moves than I can count but it will be a good beginner truck for him and has a lot more moves in it yet. I am sure Chris and that truck will be a successful team.

I don’t have to answer to anyone but the customer.

I don’t have to answer to anyone but the customer.

What’s my favourite part of being an Owner Operator? I don’t have to answer to anyone but the customer. This makes it so much easier to just focus on moving. At the end of the day, I have no one to report to. I started with oomovers years ago as a helper to Brent R. and he taught me all the tricks he learned in over 25 years of moving around Port Moody and Coquitlam. Brent has retired and I bought his truck so I am my own boss and could not be happier.

Careful packing and organization of your belongings can cut hours off the job time

Careful packing and organization of your belongings can cut hours off the job time

My best piece of moving advice would be that preparation is key. Careful packing and organization of your belongings can cut hours off the job time. It not only cuts down on the amount of trips needed to and from the moving truck, but proper packing makes it easier for me to maneuver all your belongings into one truck load. Everyone wins because you pay less and I make it home on time to Burnaby for dinner.

There have even been a few times when my wife, Swallow helped out

My dad was a mover and I began moving when I was 13 years old. Everyone in my family has helped me with my moving company all over the Fraser Valley from our base here in Abbotsford. There have even been a few times when my wife, Swallow helped out and she definitely proved that women can work as hard as men. We always liked to think of our job as our family helping your family.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

The open road beckons

West 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 local mover crews serve from Horseshoe Bay in the west to Deep Cove in the east at competitive, affordable rates. Many of our customers are not satisfied with the local movers in Squamish and Whistler so we often drive there as well.

BC Movers

Moving to another city in BC from North 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

Here at OO movers, we have offered the so called "Triangle Run" between Alberta and BC for years. Twice a month year round, as well as weekly in the summer, we have runs between Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver. Regularly, we also take customers' cargo from Alberta directly to Victoria and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. We are able to support a system that follows a regular schedule, as well as keeps costs low, because we have offices in each destination city.

Usually, moving between provinces uses large trucks where your belongings are consolidated with other clients. This keeps the price low for everyone. We are usually able to carry your possessions direct from you house to your destination without spending extra on warehousing and unnecessary handling, because we ship so often. Our per-pound long distance moving rates are very competitive and come along with our outstanding standard of service to help you relocate to a 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 North and West 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.

Piano Movers and Packing Service

Who says specialized moving services can't be cheap?

Piano Movers

Piano moving may not be a fun job, but completing a piano move successfully gives an astonishing sense of accomplishment. For movers, it is enjoyable because it is the most careful and slow work we do. Mistakes can be extremely costly and many movers have been injured moving pianos.

When you know what you are doing, the methodical steps of preparation and controlled movements that make the piano go where you want to are rewarded by a feeling of achievement once the heavy beast is safely tied down in your truck, and then again when it is proudly on show in the owners new home. Meet the master movers in our Calgary moving company who are the heros that move our heavy cargo items like pianos, safes, pool tables and hot tubs on our piano page.

Packing Services

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 West 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!
