Move between provinces

From the first contact to the delivery of our goods, our experience with Great Canadian Van Lines was stellar! Very transparent regarding costs, care in packing and transporting our belongings and timely delivery - couldn't have been a better experience!

moving

Great Canadian Van Lines did a great job moving our stuff from BC to Ontario. The packers were very friendly, efficient and helpful pointing things out with regards to the process and other related items. The driver (Edmonton based) Ima who moved our entire stuff over was very courteous and let us know when he would arrive. The whole process was professional to me and I wouldn’t hesitate doing my move again.

Long distance move from Quebec to Vancouver

GCVL arrived on time, were pleasant, courteous and very efficient. Nothing was damaged in the move which amazing as everything had to moved into a smaller truck to access our new townhouse, so basically everything was moved 3 times. I would certainly recommend them to anyone.

Perfect move from Surrey to Downtown Windsor

Bill and company arrived on time. Shipped an entire single detached house worth of furniture across the country and delivered it to downtown Windsor in perfect condition.

We had some very expensive furniture from Bombay and it arrived in mint condition. Move from Surrey to Windsor was flawless and I would use their services again.

Kathy was also helpful throughout the process and was awake 7:30 in the morning to provide us an update of arrival time.

Great company ! They moved me quick - taped my boxes that I forgot to tape. Put things in each room where I wanted them to go and compared to other companies I looked at .. much cheaper :)

Moving from Kelowna to Vancouver

The company we hired in Kelowna sub-contracted part of the shipping to Great Canadian Van Lines. When some items arrived damaged it was quickly determined that it was not Great Canadian Van Lines fault but the other company was uncooperative. However GCVL was great from the moment I contacted them. Shout out to Jane for the excellent customer services and for sorting out our claim. Class act.

Household items move from BC to Manitoba

We moved from Vancouver to Winnipeg and felt we were taken care of very well by these folks. They were quick to come provide a quote, and were able to take care of all of our needs, including the car shipping. In the end, the price was significantly higher than the quoted price, but we expected that... we had a lot of books and records to ship.

Amar was the driver and he was totally excellent! Very professional, personable, and funny. Our items all arrived in perfect shape and the team in Winnipeg were incredibly fast and hard working. All in all very satisfied.

Moving furniture from North Vancouver to Calgary in too drop off locations in Calgary

First of all Juvia in Vancouver (Sorry for the misspeling of her name )was so helpful and efficient on the phone and with further correspondance in emails.
Second of all the great guys both shipping from Vancouver and then the guys who unloaded were super. Efficient curtious,clean and so helpful. The one fellow who was the driver & mover from Edmonton was super I knew when he was coming and we got the stuff all delivered, on time and in great shape. It wasn't a big job just $1500.00 but they were loading stuff from my Mom's place in North Vancouver, as she had passed away and bringing to my house and my daughters also in Calgary. stuff that was precious to us.You should be proud of these workers , please pass these good wishes to them.
Maureen Mainwood a very happy customer.

Long Distance Move

I had to move to another province for work on short notice. This company was able to give me a time frame of when my furniture would arrive before picking it up. I chose this company for that reason. It was important to me to know when my furniture would arrive because I needed it there as soon as possible. I was not satisfied with other companies that told me they would pick up my furniture first then let me know when it would arrive. I also found the price to be very reasonable. The staff was professional and efficient. Even with a terrible snowstorm going on outside, they arrived at my new location on time. They were very organized which helped make a long distance move less stressful.
