  • Dave McAnsh

We've moved both from Vancouver to Victoria, and then from Victoria back to Vancouver within the last year and have used Dave and team both times. Would highly recommend Van City Moving for any job, but particularly for moves to the island that can be more stressful than your typical same-city move. From start to finish the experience was hands-down the best I've experienced with movers. Starting with Dave coming to do an onsite walkthrough and talk through the logistics of the move: assessing the amount needing to be moved; recommending specialty boxes for items like TVs or wardrobe boxes etc... (many of which they are able to provide at cost if you don't have them); to working out parking needs for the day of the move. On the move day itself, Jason and the crew communicated clearly prior to their arrival, showed up on time and got to work right away. Even though we had already wrapped our furniture in moving blankets, they added extra blankets to ensure everything was additionally protected, and used their own wardrobe boxes for any smaller items. Both load and unload took just under 3 hours each (for a 2bd condo with everything fully packed and ready to move). After having moved twice in one year I'm hoping to not go through the process again for quite awhile, but when we do move again I'll definitely be reaching out to Van City Moving.

David and his team have helped me move now 4 times. Every move goes smoothly, every mover is polite and I’m always so happy with the service. This will be our last move for many years as we have bought a place. The old place and the new townhouse both had complex entries! Stairs, small doorways, tricky parking etc, but David handled both as always like the pro he is! He put on a couple of extra guys to ensure it went well and was efficient. We had an extra complication post move as we didn’t end up moving our washer dryer on the day. He offered to come back in the future to help us move it if we didn’t sell it. We didn’t, and so on VERY short notice, days before our move out inspection they moved it over for us. Honestly I’ve never been more impressed with a moving company and in an industry FULL of issues, it’s nice to know who the reliable movers are! I’d never use anyone else and while we don’t plan to move anytime forwhile they are always the company I’ll recommend to others! Can’t go wrong with David and his team at Vancity Moving!!

Dave of VanCity Moving and his moving guys Doug and Drew rock. Really they do! They were pleasant and unobtrusive while executing a seemingly impossible feat others had failed: the attempted relocation of my very oversized tobacco leather sofa to its new home. But these guys did it! My sofa guietly maneuvered like an olympic diver doing a somersault over the railings of the second floor spiral staircase landing to the landing just above the first floor. The sofa landed vertically in graceful silence on one arm and one side. I almost expected it to fly away on one of the Persian carpets. It was delivered to its new home safe and sound. It was a miracle, managed with effortless finesse and professionalism by two unassuming, good-humoured men, one of whom was wearing hyper-stylish black converse sneakers. By the way, they even had the right custom allen key, another small miracle. Thank you Van City Moving magicians! Cheers, Elizabeth Crosby, MD, CCFP A highly impressed customer

  • Steve Parsons

I saw the reviews for Van City Moving were stellar so I contacted David. He came by the next day for a quote and details. I had a half load so was accommodated a lower rate sharing with another potential move. On packing day 2 team members showed up on time and meticulously and carefully packaged up the items in drop cloths etc and loaded up quickly. On arrival to my new apartment two team members were professional in uncovering all items and placing them in the required rooms. Jason, Derrick, and Sean were fantastic and timely. The price was very fair for the service David and Van City Moving provide. They want to insure that the customer is happy, period. They truly understand the meaning of customer service. I have already recommended Van City to several friends who will be moving between Vancouver and the Island and vice versa in the near future. With great gratitude to David for making the experience of a major move seamless and stress free.

  • Leta Zaleski

This review is long overdue. We moved from the Lower Mainland to the Island last year and couldn't have been happier with the service. This is not our first long distance move/experience with movers so can confidently say that this company is miles above what we have experienced before - price was fair, service was exceptional and David's ability to estimate space/weight is remarkable (it's like he has a computer in his head). It was also evident that David was a good employer and valued the work his team did and was obviously respected in return (something not often seen these days). I wouldn't hesitate in the least to recommend Van City - some of the guys may appear a little "motley crew" but don't let that deter you - they were great; super professional and respectful of our family, our home and furniture.

  • Hari Narayan

From the time I approached David, to the moment my delivery was done, there was not a single occasion when he missed my call. His repeated reassurances came a godsend to me when I was a bit worried about how I would be able to take my belongings from Vancouver to Victoria. David was among the few movers who visited my place, took an honest assessment of my situation, and gave me a good quote. He repeatedly told me that he would deliver my order even if it were the only order to him during the April-end period. The delivery executives, Jason, Soheil, and Dave were very professional and helpful as well. I wish everyone all the best, and hope David’s business grows and flourishes in the future.

  • Lorrie Cummings

David came to our home, looked at our stuff, and promptly had a fair quote back to us. He explained the whole process to us, including the fact that the price quoted was firm. He provided large picture boxes, wardrobes, and extra packing boxes. His crew was friendly and professional. The truck arrived the following morning (we moved from Pitt Meadows to Parksville) and the unloading crew was just as efficient. Everything arrived in good shape, nothing was damaged or broken. I highly recommend VanCity Moving

  • Denai Johnson

David the owner was extremely friendly and very helpful! I fully trusted him with moving my home from Vancouver to Kelowna and he and his team delivered with no damage to any of my furniture! They also gave me a great deal because they were already making a trip to the okanagan! My only critique would be: would have been great to know for sure what time the moving truck was going to be arriving... but other than that they were two thumbs up! Thanks David and Jason!

  • Mike Adamson

A great company to work with! Recently donated a truck and a friendly, well experienced mover to help us move donated furniture from our house to a recently arrived Refugee Family in the Lower Mainland. Truck and driver arrived on time when expected. The driver/mover was very quick and efficient assessing what needed to be done, then getting a timely job done well. Thank you! Great job! We'll done! Would use Van City Moving again for any move.

  • Inneke Elaschuk

Dave was very attentive to details and tried everything in his power to meet our expectations and needs. He is just such a pleasant person to work with and very professional. A refugee family moving to their new house yesterday was able to have [donated] furniture which they needed because Dave made sure the truck was available and even drove it himself to the new house past working hours.

  • Joann Cottrell

Vancity moving was a fantastic choice! We moved from Burnaby to Pender Island, and are so very grateful for the professional and speedy service by this company. David was great at organizing everything and Jason and the team really got 'er done with excellent work ethic and communication skills. A big thank you to them! And don't forget to tip your movers, they work hard for you!

  • Sandra Matzek

Highly recommend Vancity Moving for your moving needs. Dave will ensure you have what you need for your move and the guys on my moving day were very efficient and took good care of the furniture. They ensured it was all in good order to safely transport and took care in moving into the new location as well. It makes moving so much smoother and stress-free with good movers.

  • Tawnya Thornton

I picked Van City Moving because out of all the quotes I had received, Dave was the most thorough and asked some great questions about the move that no one else had. On the day of the move, Dave and his team arrived right on time - the movers were obviously very skilled, professional, and incredibly friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better moving experience!

  • Toni Latour

Dave and his moving company are pros! They are courteous, on time and always professional. I am a home stager, and I give all my business to Van City Moving. Their pack up services are meticulous, and they do a great job moving and taking care of your property and your possessions. I highly recommend them for personal and commercial moves. Excellent company!

  • Martin Conde

Small apartment move from Victoria to Vancouver on a short time frame. Messages and calls all answered almost immediately. Guys loading and unloading were great too. Lots of care and blankets. Always helps to be organized to make the move smooth. I have moved 20+ times and I would recommend them. I will use them again if needed. Thanks.

  • Mim Wickett

I met a refugee family with 2 young girls who had just arrived in Canada, and although it was December they were sleeping on the floor on blankets as they had no furniture. Dave generously and quickly organized a truck to pick up donated furniture, and at the end of the day their house was full. Thanks, Dave, for this Christmas miracle!

  • Nicole Belanger

a big thank you for making my move to Powell River an easy and stress free event. And a extra thank you to Jason { I hope I got the name right} due to things beyond his control, he had to unload all my things with great care by himself in Powell River. thank you so much..very happy with the service from start to finish...

  • Marc-Anthony

We moved from the mainland to Vancouver Island and VanCity Moving alleviated a lot of the stress. The movers were quick and efficient. They were considerate with our possessions and didn't damage a single thing. Shout out to our boy Suhail for taking apart and putting back the bed frame without breaking a sweat.

  • Susan Garrett

VanCity did a fantastic job of making our move to Powell River stress free. David, the owner, was there every step of the way, from providing an accurate quote, assisting with packing tips and assembling a team of movers who were courteous, professional, and reliable. We highly recommend using VanCity!

  • Sacha O'Regan

David and two of his colleagues moved us from Vancouver to Nanaimo last year. The team was very professional and showed an amazing amount of care for our possessions. It was also great to know exactly how much the move was going to cost before the moving day. Excellent service!

  • Isabelle

I called to get some advice about moving a large bed frame that didn't fit in the elevator and David took the time to truly understand my situation and offer different solutions. His generosity and kindness were very refreshing in this era. Great service.

  • Sidney Mindess

Very efficient and professional. The movers were particularly helpful in helping us to set up a concrete fountain, above and beyond what we had contracted for. This is the fourth time we have used them, and we would not hesitate to call on them again.
