"Your team of movers and your phone customer support -- well done! Polite, kind and helpful -- Such a treat to deal with real-life, engaged caring people. I liked your online updates too -- I felt special and every time I called, my file was immediately accessed and whatever I needed was addressed. Well done! Thank you, you and your great team made a stressful transition much easier. Can't thank you enough!"
"Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I found them last minute before a move from Duncan to Courtenay for a great price. They arrived on time, coffee in tow for me. Moved efficiently and even shaved an hour off my quoted time. The team was respectful enough to ask if I wanted shoes off at the door during the move!! Kind and brought me a housewarming plant as well! Nothing damaged during the move. Nothing but great things to say about You Move Me. Highly recommended."
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.
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!
"We recently hired You Move Me to help us move into a new home on the other site of town. From start to finish, the experience was excellent and highly professional. Our movers, Kyle and Cody, were the opposite of the stereotypical mover - they were friendly, polite, efficient, and really cared about making sure there was no damage to our belongings or our new home. We will definitely use You Move Me again for any future moving needs... excellent company, highly recommended! A+"
