Owners Care

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

At Owner Operator Movers Richmond 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

My friends love the free stuff I bring home

My friends love the free stuff I bring home

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.

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.

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.

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.

About Richmond

A city at the edge of the water, Richmond is an island city in the province of British Columbia. Made up almost completely of islands, it has an estimated population of 224,000 and has the highest percentage of immigrants in Canada. It is home to the second-busiest airport in the country, Vancouver International Airport which has flights to almost all seven continents. The city has several beautiful parks and beaches that are perfect for hanging out with your loved ones.

Climate

Because Richmond gets very little snow in the winter, it is the perfect place for people who do not like the snowy winters that Canada is usually known for. The city has moderate temperatures as it is never too hot or too cold in the city.

Arts & Culture

Richmond is a city that is brimming with arts and culture. It has several art galleries that display historic works of art. The island city also has two National Historic Sites, as well as Canada's only official Olympic museum. The city also celebrates festivals including Steveston Salmon Festival and the Richmond Maritime Festival.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

The open road beckons

Richmond Local Movers

People in the Lower Mainland like to move a lot and Richmond once had the highest priced movers in Canada because it used to be the most expensive place to live. Times have changed and so does the economy. At Owner Operator Movers Richmond we charge the same affordable rate in all our offices and have never charged “Boom Town” rates.

Our local mover crews serve Richmond, Delta, and Vancouver at competitive, affordable rates. Many of our customers are not satisfied with the local movers in Langley and Whiterock so we often drive there as well.

BC Movers

Moving to another city in BC from Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond 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.

More About Piano Movers

Packing Services

Often, packing is actually more difficult than the move itself. Proper packing takes much more time than most people have in their busy lives. Our experienced crews can make the painful process of packing happen effortlessly or can help out as much or as little as needed. We can carefully pack everything from your fine china to that messy garage. Our most common packing request is kitchen packing service or just to bring extra wardrobe boxes.

Our Richmond movers group encourage the use of plastic tubs and used boxes for moving whenever possible. Reusable packaging is more environmentally friendly than even the most easily recycled material. Liquor stores and produce sections of grocery stores always have lots of free boxes that can be reused for moving.
