You Move Me: Moving Company, Moving Services and Local Movers

Looking for Moving Companies in Victoria, BC? Look no further!

If it's the island life for you, then you're probably ready to move to Vancouver Island. Whether you're looking at living in the beautiful city of Victoria or somewhere smaller like Nanaimo, you're probably not looking forward to the actual move itself. That's where we come in – when you move with us, it's almost fun!

  


What Makes Our Movers in Victoria Different?

Our team of friendly, uniformed movers has experience moving virtually anything you can think of. Couches, heavy appliances, pianos, priceless paintings – if it can be moved, we've moved it. This experience ensures that we'll take good care of your belongings during the moving process. In fact, we'll treat your stuff with the same care we would give our own. Our competitive pricing practices will ensure that you get a moving service you're happy with for a price you're thrilled about.

We offer a variety of customizable service levels based on how involved you want us to be with your move. Don't want to lift a finger, even to pack? We can help you with that! Just need some muscle to move the boxes from place to place? We do that, too! We also sell a variety of moving supplies should you need them.


What to Expect On Moving Day

Moving day can be exciting – but it can also be stressful. That's why we'll greet you with a hot cup of coffee, made just the way you like it. Our team will take on the stress of moving so you don't have to. Here's how moving day breaks down when you hire You Move Me:

  1. We'll call you before your scheduled move time to confirm your address and find out where we're supposed to park – particularly important if parking around your home is limited!
  2. We'll do a walkthrough so you can point out any furniture or boxes that require special care.
  3. We pack the truck while you're relaxing, saving the important items for last.
  4. We drive the truck to your new home – and the truck is packed so well that nothing shifts during transit.
  5. We unpack everything in the truck. You tell us what room you want a box in, and that's where that box will go!
  6. We walk through your new home with our completion checklist to ensure that everything is done exactly how you want it.
  7. This is supposed to be a secret – but we're also going to give you a housewarming gift!

If you hate moving, you'll really love us!


Victoria Movers who Also Pack!

We offer a selection of Vancouver Island packing services to help make your move as smooth as possible. Here's a list of everything we can do for you:

  • Pack and unpack your entire home. That's right – with our full pack service, you won't have to lift a finger at any point during the moving process!
  • Pack and unpack your kitchen. Our most popular service – we'll handle the tricky part of packing cutlery, dishes, and glassware so you don't have to worry about anything getting broken.
  • Single item packing service. For those tricky items that you're not sure how to pack!
  • Pack valuables.
  • Clothing packing service. We'll transport your clothing using one of our specially designed wardrobe boxes – this ensures that your clothes won't get wrinkled during the moving process. No sense in doing any extra laundry if you don't have to!

Stephanie Hopkins
Owner
English

Hi, my name is Stephanie Hopkins, and I'm the owner of You Move Me Vancouver Island. We move people on Vancouver Island, and are headquartered in beautiful Victoria, BC.

I have a special attachment to the Island because I was born and raised here. Since I grew up on a small family farm, I know the value of hard work, which is pretty essential when running your own local moving company.

I decided to open up a You Move Me franchise because I know how hard moving is and I know from experience that the moving industry is in serious need of a facelift. You Move Me is a different kind of moving company, and our customers will be able to tell from the minute they get on the phone with us.

Our mandate is to be the best, most professional moving company on Vancouver Island. We always answer our calls professionally and greet our customers when we arrive on the scene. The team is always clean, in uniform, and informed about your move. And, of course, we will bring you a coffee, and leave you with your very first housewarming gift.

You Move Me is all about people – and we have the best moving professionals on our team.

I'm excited to be creating well-paying jobs while making a very stressful day for Vancouver Islanders as stress-free as possible.

When I'm not moving you, I'm spending time with my family (my husband and my baby girl) who are really proud of me for taking on this challenging industry. I'm also an avid runner, softball fielder (with a cannon arm), and a street hockey defense specialist.

Sales & Marketing Manager

Hello There!!

My name is Morgan Sutherland, and I’m the newest member to the You Move Me Vancouver Island crew. I’ve joined as the new Sales and Marketing Manager and I am absolutely thrilled to be working with this amazing team!

Although I haven’t always lived on Vancouver Island, after moving here nearly seven years ago, I couldn’t think of a better place to call home. With stunning landscapes, beautiful weather and a rich and diverse culture, I’d be crazy not to fall in love with this spectacular place.

Prior to joining the team I had studied at the University of Victoria, where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. You might be thinking, what does Philosophy have to do with moving? Well, You Move Me has maintained their own positive philosophical theory that by not just moving people’s boxes, but instead moving the people that accompany those boxes, we can build a stronger and more connected community. This attitude has resonated with me and I strive to continue to make this perspective the heart of what we do!

Although you will often find me out in the community attending events, you may also spot me partaking in my passion: Roller Derby! As part of the Eves of Destruction Roller Derby League I find great joy in the camaraderie of the sport and the building of solid team connections. I take from my experiences on the track and translate them to our very own team, because although many individuals can move furniture, it takes a team to move a home!

I’m very excited to be a part of You Move Me Vancouver Island, and I can’t wait to help you with your next move!

Patrick Ellison
General Manager

Hello!

My name is Patrick Ellison and I’m the General Manager for You Move Me Vancouver Island.

I’ve been a resident of Victoria for 4 years, after having moved to the island from the Sunshine Coast. I knew Victoria would be a great fit for me because I really enjoy spending time outdoors and staying active through swimming and hiking. I’ve been known to dabble in the art of cooking, but really find my peace when deep in a great book!

Although You Move Me isn’t my first experience working with a moving company, I have found great joy and plenty of fantastic new experiences managing our team. We have a great group of movers who are dedicated, hardworking and friendly, so they make my job easy by already exceeding industry expectations!

One of my favourite quotes comes from Colin Powell who said: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure,” and I couldn’t agree more. As I continue to work and grow this amazing business, I strive to support our team, maintain the best experience for our clients and always strive to learn more!

I look forward to helping your next move be the best it can be, and hope to meet you soon!

  • Always keeping in touch to confirm what time they would arrive. Fast and efficient. Friendly and courteous. Great team work,Thanks Ross
    Victoria
  • Attention to detail. They moved an extremely large and cumbersome piece that's function required that it not be twisted in any fashion. The move was difficult as it had to go up stairs and around a tight corner. They also used a third mover as a spotter that walked beside the two carrying the equipment and guided them through the tight spots. Very impressive.
    Victoria
  • Efficient work. Excellent packing of truck. Very accommodating to special requests for placement of items on delivery.

Tips for moving in Together
When you’ve finally found the perfect person, living with a roommate can be the best! Sharing a space with your best friend or loved one is great because you know you’ll always have your favourite person around for all the best activities: Cooking meals, watching Netflix, sharing clothes etc. Living with a roommate can really help financially, as well as can be super rewarding, but a great living situation doesn’t always get a fighting chance.

We help you plan the day ahead of time, locate storage facilities, find enough of the right size boxes and even bring you coffee.
