Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

Things went well. I was very happy with the service from GCVL at every level and would easily recommend GCVL to friends. This was our third cross Canada move and GCVL was the best of the three movers we used.

Moved my belongings from Toronto to Vancouver

I was very impressed with Great Canadian Van Lines from the very first call I made to inquire about their services. They were professional, answered all of my questions and concerns, sent me a quote via email immediately and made the moving process so easy. They have a price match guarantee (which wasn't necessary- they gave me the best price) and were extremely reliable. I had some odds and ends that needed to be packed last minute, they were prepared with packing tape, boxes and tools to help with the larger items I couldn't pack myself.

Total Home Move

We ended up in a short timeframe move scenario, which was causing tremendous stress. However, from the initial call to GCVL to the timliness of the crew arriving at our home to begin, NOT ONCE did an issue of stress arise from dealing with this moving company. The booking was easy, and the crew that came out were incredibly friendly, courteous and professional. I know this shouldn't matter, but even their appearance was beyond what I had seen from other moving companies, and was incredibly encouraging. The guys honestly seemed eager to help, and completed the task under what we had expected for time. In fact, we were so pleased that we encouraged them to stay and join us for a pizza dinner...and we had a great time!
There is simply no question I would recommend GCVL for anyone's move, and they have my business for life.

5 moves over 10-years

We have used Great Cnadain Van Lines for 5 moves now between vancouver and Toronto since 1998. Their service has been friendly, courteous and always on time. They have accomodated special needs like multiple location pick up and deleivery with never a complaint. The most recent time they couldn't get the truck past a tree blocking the driveway so they went away, packed our stuff onto a smaller truck and came back the same day and delivered our stuff. No questions asked. We will use them again for our next move for sure.

move across country

Great Canadian Van Lines moved me twice in under a year. They were hassle free, inexpensive, and quick movers. In the first move, two items were damaged which I claimed. I was so happy with how quickly they handled the claim, I decided to use them for my next move a year later to the other side of the country.

Moving

Great Canadian Van Lines moved our household from a 5 level house in Lions Bay to a remote site near Merritt. They arrived in Lions Bay on time and rolled out carpets and runners to protect the floors and stairs. They carefully and cheerfully carried everything up and down stairs and up the brutal driveway. I nervously watched them wrap my piano and gently move it. They packed lamps which I had been unable to do, ingeniously and, again, cheerfully. The next day, they found the Merritt site on time. They quickly unloaded all our furniture and goods into the one level house and unpacked it all, carefully completing a checklist as they went. At the end of it all, the bill was actually less than the estimate! We had superb service and it cost less than was quoted. I heartily recommend Great Canadian Van Lines.

Estate move (smaller scale)

The crew picked up the contents of my moms condo in Coquitlam BC and transported it to Calgary to a storage facility. They were exceptional in wrapping some very precious memories for me and also in taking great care with some antique furniture. I was impressed with the speed in which they got the job done and everything was executed perfectly with timing and the transportation as I still needed to drive back to Calgary from BC to receive my goods.
It was a real delight to have a team who came in did the job no complaining and knew what they were doing. Thanks again Great Canadian Van Lines.. I would hire you again if needed! Isobel Rankin

household moving between cities

Excellent service. Showed up exactly on time in both places, friendly with excellent head office support and communication and substantially cheaper than the other alternatives. I was a very small and unimportant move for these people financially, but I was treated with class the whole way through.

moving company

The communication with the dispatcher and the van driver was very good. All furniture and other items were wrapped well. The driver and helpers showed up at the time we agreed to. There was not breakage or damage. One improvement could be that the movers said a queen box spring and mattress could not be moved to the top floor. They could have removed a banister and chose not to. I managed to move it with the help of my neighbours.
