“ I’m sure you guys hear this all the time, but there is NO comparison between you and “the competition”. We have used multiple moving companies over the years. You guys are very customer satisfaction focused and clearly know what your doing! - THANK YOU! ”

Carey L. - November 2017 - Whistler

“ This move was the second handled by ‘Moving Up’ - a sure indication that we were more than satisfied the first time (9 years ago!).

The whole crew were fantastic - on time, hard working, enthusiastic, and cheerful at all times.

Once again ‘Moving Up’ exceeded our expectations, in all respects.

We thank you! ”

Peter D. - November 2017 - Surrey

“ Thanks Moving Up! Impressive! I now see why you are the “Referred Movers”. On time, right equipment and a real professional crew. We appreciate you making a difficult event (moving) easy and stress free. ”

John R. & June B - October 2017 - Vancouver

“ With thanks! Guys were awesome! ”

Leanne J. - June 2017 - North Vancouver

At Moving Up, we go beyond expectation. We deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction. It's the foundation of our reputation, and the basis for the positive feedback we receive.

“ Couldn’t be happier with my recent move. The team of 6 showed up at 9am and was done with my 2-Bed condo by 1pm. Efficient and well-managed from start to finish! When I threw them a curveball of the kitchen area not being packed including the fridge and freezer, they quickly made boxes and transported everything from my old fridge to my new fridge like they were their own items. Instead of me having to pack and make multiple trips later with these boxes, their proactive response meant I was saved a lot of inconvenience later on. ”

Bob L. - March 2017 - Vancouver

Dear Jeff,
We would just like to thank you for all your help in our move. It was done very professionally and with great care. All your “helpers” were exceptionally helpful and very polite. What a great “gang”. We would recommend your company with great ease!
Thank you, thank you, again.

Mary & Trevor J. - May 2016 - Vancouver

I do complement you on your services - the people handling the move were wonderful to deal with and the whole process extremely efficient and professional.

Debra T. - May 2016 - Vancouver

“Hi Jeff,
I am finally getting around to sending this back to you. This being my first time using Moving Up, I will start by saying that the things I had heard proved to be true and more!
The four young men that did my move were friendly and professional. They were very organized and fast. Andrew was the lead person and he did an extremely good job delegating and spoke to his colleagues respectfully.
From everyone to Kim who set the move date and provided me with some recycled boxes, to the 4 movers, to Christina with the invoice, etc. I cannot say how totally satisfied I was with my moving experience.
Thank you!”

Yvonne - July 2015 - North Vancouver

“Moving Up" provided a very quick and professional response to my request for a moving cost estimate. A few days later, Simon and Francis appeared on time and completed the move in a very efficient and careful manner. Thank you "Moving Up".”

Bruce P - November 2014 - North Vancouver

“Very happy from start to finish. I’m appreciative of my team’s multiple attempts at getting my couch into my new apartment! Unfortunately, the difficult angles in the hallway just wouldn’t allow my 7 foot couch into it’s new home! Luckily I was thinking of getting a new couch anyway - so I greatly appreciate that my moving team took the old couch away to donate to charity. Thanks for going the extra mile - especially where Yaletown condo hallways are concerned!”

Mark S. - June 2014 - Vancouver

“It's like watching a Formula 1 pit crew change out the tires! We have used Moving Up several times now and it's impressive to see so many bodies flowing like that. Truly, they operate at a whole other level and without hesitation we have and do refer them.”

Mike D. - December 2013 - South Surrey

“Jeff, We have used your company for four moves and all were handled excellently. The people conducting the move knew what they were doing, were polite and arrived on time. Without hesitation we have and will continue to recommend your company.
Thanks Rosemary and Paul.”

Rosemary S - November 2013 - Vancouver

“Thank you, I will definitely recommend you and use your services again.”

Trish F. - October 2013 - West Vancouver

“Jeff and the lads were efficient, friendly, and easy to work with.”

Carol M. - September 2013 - North Vancouver

“Excellent job as always.”

Mike M. - September 2013 - Coquitlam

“We'll be certain to refer you and your team for future customer needs! Thanks again!”

Jane M. - May 2013 - Halfmoon Bay

“Jeff and the team took great care to wrap and protect our furniture so nothing was damaged in the move. Thank you!”

Susan L. - August 2012 - North Vancouver

“Hey Jeff. Guys were fantastic. Such a great crew. Simon was top notch! One of the best moves yet. Thanks.”

Darren S. - April 2012 - Coquitlam

“I am writing to let you know the team you had sent on March 16, 2012 was excellent. The four young men were courteous and hardworking. I have dealt with different moving companies previously but definitely your four guys made the difference and I will keep your company in mind for future moves. A big thank you to those fellows.”

Patricia L. – March 2012 - Vancouver

“We at Mobilearth have used Moving Up a few times, and every time we are floored by their work.
They are always exactly on time, and even so, they always call to ensure that everyone is aware of where they are and what time they will arrive. They are incredibly courteous and kind, and are smiling and happy and generally enjoyable to be around.
They take great care to dis-assemble and assemble all furniture, ensure everything is wrapped and protected, and provide more than adequate boxes, wrapping, tape, labels, and anything else that could make the move easier.
These guys are super quick and even run up and down the stairs to get the job done. It’s clear they know what they are doing and they could not be a nicer group of genuinely good people.”

As posted on Yelp on January 3, 2012 - Robin Smillie (TRG Mobilearth Inc.) – January 2012 - Vancouver

“Since my early 20's until now, I must have moved close to eighty times not only within Canada but other parts of the world as well. I have never experienced such an efficient moving company as Moving Up. The crew who moved me in North Vancouver were the speediest and most courteous and organized. A move done before would have taken twice as long but we were loaded up in 2 hours, unloaded in 1 1/2 hours and everything placed exactly where I requested it to be put.
Have already handed out their cards to numerous friends. I highly recommend Moving Up and I will not use any one else in the future but them. Excellent!”

Liz – December 2011 – North Vancouver

“Always the best!”

Kim N. – November 2011 – North Vancouver

“Simon & Frances were impressive young men! The whole team was fabulous, but these two stood out. Obviously I am sincerely impressed with the professionalism with which I, and our belongings were treated. You run a class act and I will definitely be recommending Moving Up Inc. to everyone and anyone!!! I’ll see you again in March for our move in! Thank you so much!!!”

Elaine C. - November 2011 - Vancouver

“Wanted to shoot you a note and say thanks for the help yesterday! Faster than expected, under budget and positive attitudes! Moving sucks and you guys definitely made it easier.”

G. - October 2011 - North Vancouver

“Great job! Thanks to everyone. Cody, our television system never worked so well! We were afraid to change it when we got the wireless system. Anyway, surprise, surprise, wireless system from Sony actually works. So no more wires across new floor!”

Paul & Leanne J. – October 2011 – Vancouver

“We were carrying out a major renovation of our house and had to move out. We had been in the same house for 31 years. We had to pack and store a lot of items and move to a temporary residence that was smaller than our house. Moving Up packed up all the non-essentials and put them into storage for us and then in one day moved all the remaining items to to the temporary residence. For moving neophytes like us Moving Up made the process much less stressful than we had anticipated. We shall be using Moving Up to move back to our house when the renovation is complete.”

Anthony & Katherine F. - September 2011 - Vancouver

“Just a quick note to say again what a great experience it is to move with Moving Up Inc. The packing and move arrangements performed yesterday went without a hitch. Your fellows are so polite, diligent and efficient - it really makes what could be something stressful very easy. All the best.”

Allyson N. - July 2011 - North Vancouver

“Highly recommend. I was somewhat concerned about having to move several large fragile glass antique display cases. These gentlemen did a superb job, very efficient, courteous. I was very pleased with the service and would certainly use them for any future moves. Many thanks!”

Bill H. - June 2011 - North Vancouver

“You guys did an outstanding job moving my client, who is a Senior, from the Sunshine Coast back to Vancouver.
I have been working with Seniors who are moving and downsizing, for over 15 years....a move has never gone this smooth!
If you ever require a reference, I would be ever so please to provide one!
Your crew was fast, kind and caring! You all went above and beyond the call of duty.
Wishing you and your crew many success in life!
Keep up the good good work! You're a CLASS ACT!”

Shannon Kewley (Re/Max Crest Realty) - June 2011 - North Vancouver

“All enquiries, from estimate to final minutes of move, were quickly and immediately responded to by Jeff or a member of his team.
Respectful interaction with his team, and them with one another created an atmosphere of calm and control. Furniture was placed exactly as requested and relocated with a pleasant attitude if an alteration was required.
They were timely and minimally disruptive to those in the building as I was leaving as well as in my new building.
I would recommend Moving Up highly to anyone who was anticipating a move. Did I tell you how fabulous your change of address information is on your website! WOW! My thanks to Jeff and his team!”

Diane M. - May 2011 - West Vancouver

“I couldn’t have been more pleased. The guys were terrific. Thank you so much. I would recommend you to anyone.”

Enid B. – March 2011 - Richmond

“I would like to comment on how well your crew carried out the job...very quickly and professionally. Quite the most professional job of this nature I have ever experienced (and I have moved around the world...all over Canada, UK and India). No breakages at all. If I ever need to move again, I will without hesitation be in touch with you.”

James C. - December 2010 - Surrey

“Everyone was very professional and friendly. We had some difficult items to move and our expectations were exceeded. Thank you!”

Kelly C. – December 2010 - West Vancouver

“We were more than satisfied with your service! Starting with the President, Jeff Hornell, who conducted the move in small details, to the quiet and efficient employees, everything worked quickly and smoothly and we will certainly recommend Moving Up to our friends. We would also like to mention how relieved we were in finding out that you removed our junk and discarded it for us. Your used boxes service was also an added bonus.”

Nachiko & Ted Y. – November 2010 - North Vancouver

“It would be remiss of us to just send a cheque for moving our furniture without commending you and especially your crew for a job well done.

From accommodating our move dates, to the care and handling of our furniture and the concern of the crew in protecting our refurbished hardwood floor we are so pleased that BC Hardwood Floor referred Moving Up to us. It shows that there is truth to the saying it takes a good company to know one.

The two fellows that were the main movers did an outstanding job. They were courteous, industrious, efficient and thoughtful.

Thanks to everyone at Moving Up.”

John & Gilberte T. - October 2010 - Vancouver

“Excellent Move. The crew was a great team!”

Bill & Gail C. – August 2010 - Sechelt

“The two young men were very pleasant and helpful. It was proven when they were given a challenge re: the sofa but they made it! All in all, pleased with the move. Carrying out the garbage and unwanted furniture that was then taken to the dump was a big help.”

Anita D. – May 2010 - West Vancouver

“Everything was great, it was a great experience overall. Will certainly recommend. Many thanks.”

Nancy W. – April 2010 - North Vancouver

“Everyone at Moving Up was efficient, very careful, thorough, pleasant to talk to and went over and above to assure I was happy and my move was a positive experience. From picture placing and furniture arrangement to overall packing and unpacking, I definitely would use this company again and would recommend them to friends, family and business associates. My time schedule to get the job done due to a crisis was pretty much immediate with not much notice and ‘Moving Up’ was able to accommodate this. Thank you again for a job well done!”

Laura C. – March & April 2010 - White Rock

“Thanks for an easy, stress free move!!”

Elizabeth & Sebastian V. – March 2010 - Vancouver

“As always – unbelievable! So very organized and effortless. The crew is wonderful to work with, very professional and always aware of their surroundings. I have told many individuals of your unique services and will continue to do so. I am sure this won’t be my last time moving and of course you will be the ‘referred’ phone call when I go down this road again! Cheers.”

Glynis & Teagan D. – March 2010 - North Vancouver

“Great job. Nice guys. On time. All great!!”

Rosemary S. – January 2010 - Vancouver

“We have moved many times and this by far was the best one ever – due in large part to Moving Up and their crew. They were positive, friendly, nothing was too much effort and they worked their tails off! Thanks to you all!”

Rod & Kim H. – May 2009 - West Vancouver

“I was very pleased with Moving Up’s services. Your services were prompt, efficient, courteous, friendly and totally professional from start to finish. You and your crew took great care in ensuring our move was accomplished as smoothly as possible.

I would gladly have Moving Up assist me again and I am happy to refer you to other potential clients. Thank you for a job well done.”

Brad G. – March & April 2009 - West Vancouver

“Hi Jeff, Jesse & Cody (2 of the crew you brought here for the delivery) were exceptionally helpful and accommodating of our multiple requests throughout the long day (as were you!). The overall professionalism of the entire group was remarkable (and much appreciated). We both were impressed with the way everyone introduced themselves at the start and the caring manner demonstrated by the whole crew. Everything arrived 'intact' and was unpacked with great speed and efficiency. I also really appreciated the help with calling Telus re: the Internet hook up problem and troubleshooting that problem for us.

On the 'pick up end' in North Vancouver, everything also went very, very smoothly and was professionally accomplished. It was nice to see a woman included in your crew! Again, the introductions and organized professional manner in which everyone worked was so great!

Ditto your attention to detail and important considerations such as the safety of your crew were extremely well done. Thanks so very, very much! Keep up the great work and hiring of great people. We would recommend you without reservation.”

Cheri H. (Health Care Professional) & Wayne B. (Human Resources Specialist) – November & December 2008 - Nanaimo

“Thank you and your great team for making ‘my’ move as painless as possible.  I don't like moving (especially away from the ocean) but you made it as easy as possible with your wonderful organization of all details.  I will recommend you to all my friends.  Thanks again for everything.”

Bill G. – November 2008 - North Vancouver

“We wanted you to know how pleased we were with the whole operation, and the attitude of all your people. I don’t know how many times or from how many of your lads we heard…no problem…when asked to do something we had either forgotten, or had misdirected them in the first place!

Certainly there is no need for them to spend their hard earned money going to a gym…they get a first class workout lifting and carrying all the heavy stuff, and they certainly don’t hang about! It’s not really possible to pick out anyone for special mention, as they were all unfailingly polite, and hard working.

Please pass on our thanks to them all for a job well done. Thanks again Jeff.”

Peter & Christine D. – October 2008 - Surrey

“Thanks again for all your help Jeff! You guys did a great job.”

Renee L. – September 26, 2008 - North Vancouver

“Prompt arrival to pack and move at both locations. Very cordial team. Appearance was excellent = many movers arrive in dirty overalls - not your team. No time wasted at all - fast and efficient careful handling of all goods to be moved. The best I've ever had and I've moved nationally and internationally at least nine times. Thank you - highly recommended, far above the ‘known industry names’ in the industry!”

Elizabeth G. – July 2008 - Alberta

“Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again, for being so professional and such a pleasure to work with. The guys who did my move were friendly and efficient. I never once considered that my belongings were in anything but safe and respectful hands.”

Kate M. – March 2008 - North Vancouver

“We are finally settled in our new place. I wanted to let you and your great team at Moving Up, how impressed Denise and I were with the job that you did in moving us that Thursday night. Without any hesitation we would recommend you and your company to our friends or anyone for that matter.

You did a great job. It went without a hitch. Keep up the good work.”

George & Denise B. – March 2008 - Port Moody

“Your guys did a very good and fast job. Thank you.”

Marius & Lucy V. – April 2008 - Burnaby

“Thank you for another awesome move. You are truly the best and I am so grateful to have you to recommend! Best to all of you and thanks again.”

Sheila O’Brien (Dexter Associates Realty) – March 2008 - Vancouver

“Excellent service. Polite and courteous young men. Worked hard and fast. Safe with heavy and fragile boxes and items. Would use your services again and would recommend you to friends and family. Thank you for making our move stress-free.”

Moez D. – March 2008 - North Vancouver

“Jeff, I cannot believe the service that you gave, it was outstanding and your movers were great! The best move that I’ve ever had. The only problem is that I love my place so much that I don’t need your services again. My mom bought her place down below so I will refer your company to her.”

Ramy H. – March 2008 - North Vancouver

“Work well done in every way. Thanks for making a tough day go better.”

Dean B. – March 2008 - North Vancouver

“Jeff – The two guys you sent were great – very friendly and helpful and very efficient.”

Allyson N. – January 2008 - Vancouver

“We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and courtesy of your staff and their obvious care to taking care of our furnishings. Thank you.”

Robin W. – February 2008 - North Vancouver

“I have moved extensively through the years, back and forth from Canada to Asia to Australia and back to Vancouver several times. Moving Up has been one of the best moving experience I have encountered. Moving house for me is always a time of upheaval that connotes being misplaced. I cannot thank Moving Up enough for making this a very painless experience.

I also want to take this opportunity to say how efficient Mike G. and Tarek E. were in their non-stop pace through the day. We started off packing up my art studio and then moved down to pack up the apartment. Mike and Tarek did not miss a beat. Their camaraderie and experience showed the professionalism of the company. My paintings, boxes and furniture were packed in safe and secure using blankets and brackets to hold everything in place, nothing moved. Mike also showed his expertise in driving when we had to come up to a tight spot at the back of the building. The moving truck is awesome, top of the line, computerized, clean and organized.

Thank you Jeff, Mike and Tarek for making this the best move ever. I have put your business card up in the laundry of the building and sung your praises to all at work. Best wishes to all.”

Kaye F. – January 2008 - Vancouver

“With many thanks. I’m so impressed with your respectful, excellent and efficient work.

I meant to give this to you yesterday, but forgot in the rush this token of my appreciation. So here it is now, I feel really happy to have it done and finished.

Thank you all, I’ll have no problems recommending you to others or calling you again if I need to. Thank Laura for knowing you and passing on your name (as well as Desiree).”

Kathy B. – December 2007 & January 2008 - North Vancouver

“We were very favorably impressed by the service received. Both men were extremely competent, careful and helpful. So we will certainly recommend your company without hesitation.”

Barbara L. – November 2007 - Vancouver

“Simply a treat, on time, efficient, clean & helpful.”

Barbara B. – October 2007 - West Vancouver

“Jeff – your team was excellent. We couldn't have been happier.”

Tammy and Mike B. – September 2007 - Coquitlam

“Just a note to let you know how WONDERFUL the team was that moved me on August 31st. They were so fast, so organized. Understood the stress I was feeling. They are super people. I'll be telling my realtor to keep on referring your company and will be telling anyone else how great you guys are. Thank you.”

Noelle F. – August 2007 - North Vancouver

“Always arrived on time. Very efficient and careful with the furniture. Staff very pleasant, courteous and hard working. Highly recommend to anyone contemplating a move.”

Craig O. – August 2007 - West Vancouver

Cliff M. – July 2007 - Port Moody

“We appreciated the professional, yet personal touch of the whole team. Thank you.”

Dave & Phyllis F. – July 2007 - Nanaimo

“Jeff, you and your crew made my move worry free. When you showed up, I guess I looked a little stressed out, moving our retail store was a daunting task, but one of your guys assured me that Moving Up was going to make it easy for me, and he was right. Thanks for the great service; we will definitely be referring Moving Up to our colleagues.”

Trevor W. (Vancouver Cigar Company) – June 2007 - Vancouver

Bonnie F. – June 2007 - West Vancouver

Heather P. – June 2007 - North Vancouver

“This was our second move with ‘Moving Up’. As always they were very professional, courteous and ultra careful with our valuables. We will definitely use them again for our next move!”

Mike D. – June 2007 - North Vancouver

“Very happy with everyone. Great personalities!”

Val W. – April 2007 - West Vancouver

“Great job done! Right on time. Your team made the task of moving a 500lb dental chair look easy with the equipment you used, proper ramps, hydraulic moving dollies etc. Many thanks!”

Lloyd H. (Proforma Business Service) – March 2007 - North Vancouver

“Thanks so much.  The guys that moved my stuff were awesome. Totally professional and kind. I will definitely be booking you for my ultimate move in the next few months. Thanks.”

Elena V. – February 2007 - Vancouver

“Hi Christina, just a line to let you know Dennis and I were impressed from meeting you, and the guys that did our move. The friendly helpful service we received was without a doubt, made our move a piece of cake! Thank you for clearing the snow, which was above and beyond your duties. Will certainly recommend ‘Moving Up’ to everyone we know. Thanks again.”

Dennis & Agnes M. - November 2006 - Sechelt

Elspeth & Royce H. – November 2006 - West Vancouver

“Julia and I were impressed with your work. We felt you were good workers, honest with the hours and billing and really careful with the goods. Our landlord mentioned this as well and as you can imagine shees movers weekly. She was quite impressed how well you packed the table and the sofa. We will definitely recommend your company.”

Colin Z. – October 2006 - Vancouver

“It was a pleasure to meet you and your friendly crew. Colin and I were very happy to see the care and efficiency your team displayed while moving us on a wet stormy day. All of our possessions made the trip without a scratch. Great work. We will be sure to recommend your company to our friends, family and colleagues.”

Julia Z. – October 2006 - Vancouver

“Thank you for making the 9th move I have done (in my adult life) so organized and stress free. Your professional manner and friendly style was greatly appreciated. I will certainly recommend “Moving Up” to all my friends and family.”

Susan A. – July 2006 - Gabriola Island

“We really appreciated the personal care and attention that we received from everybody that was involved with the packing and moving of our household. We have no hesitation in recommending your services and will use you again in the future. Keep up the good work!”

Jeff & Vera D. - May 2006 - Vancouver

Capilano Upholstery and Design - April 2006 – North Vancouver

“Jeff, I was very impressed with the service your company gave me. Al your crew were courteous, conscientious and hard working. They treated my furniture and possessions with care and respect. I have never received such fantastic service from a moving company. I will without hesitation recommend you to my colleagues and friends, and I will be using you on my next move. Thanks.”

Reiner T. & Sharon C. – April 2006 - North Vancouver

“Moving our ‘Consulting Offices’ with 35 years of papers and files and drawings with oversized filing cabinets and storage compartments – not a problem for Jeff and his band of men. When they needed more bodies they were on the job. It was a pleasant and easy move for us. They are both professional and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Highly reliable and experienced. Their quoted price within budget with no surprises. It was a pleasure to be a customer. Thank you.”

Susan S. (Roy Campbell Ltd) - February 2006 - West Vancouver

“Moving Up did a fabulous job. Extremely professional, efficient, excellent communication, punctual and helpful. They set up our beds and made us feel comfortable on our moving day. These guys are amazing. Would highly recommend them to anyone.”

“Efficient, professional and always reliable.”

Went. H. (Bohemia Antiques) - January 2006 - West Vancouver

“If you want peace of mind when choosing a mover, choose ‘Moving Up’. Jeff, Cody and the crew are amazing! They are extremely professional! Each piece of my furniture was moved very carefully. They were on time and moved quickly, yet carefully! I am very pleased – this is not the first time that I have used their services and they will be the first movers I call when I move again. I have referred them to friends, who are also very impressed! Each member of the crew was pleasant and polite. They are definitely the best movers in BC. Thanks so much!”

Laurie C. (Principal) - January 2006 - Vancouver

“In any type of service, I look for people with a positive attitude who do their work efficiently and well. I got that and more when the Moving Up crew made our move, fun and easy while providing friendly reliable service.”
