"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!"
“The folks at You Move Me are wonderful. Every interaction I have had with them made me feel listened to and taken care of, from the first phone call to the folks who showed up with the truck: Mark, Ben and team for my first move into a storage locker; and then Kory, Ben and Michael for the second move into my new home. Professional, pro-active and cheerful. I highly recommend this company.”
My name is Mike Dahlman and I am the managing partner for the You Move Me Franchise covering Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. We launched the business in 2013, believing that in the moving space, we were uniquely positioned to help people through a difficult time. If we could employ young and energetic people who really enjoyed the physical nature of the job and genuinely wanted to help people, we would stand out in the market. Our numerous awards and even more online reviews would suggest we are on the right track.
I started my entrepreneurial career in 2001 where I ran a College Pro Painting franchise while attending the University of Victoria. After university, I moved to Vancouver to help coach other future entrepreneurs as the experience I had in university had been such an incredible learning experience for me and I wanted to share it with others. After working in other people’s businesses as a manager for several years, I wanted to get back to doing something more entrepreneurial again and jumped in to help launch You Move Me.
Life’s not all work for me though, as in my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and three boys. We love exploring the outdoors, riding bikes, playing soccer and baseball and even working out together. If you see me out and about feel free to ask me why we think plants make the best housewarming gifts.
Hi! My name is Mike and I’m the Operations Manager at You Move Me Vancouver.
I started with the Vancouver team in 2014 as a Crew Lead which gave me the opportunity to help lots of people have stress-free moves into their new places. Now I get to help build our teams by making sure they have the skills and resources that help them be at their best when moving folks throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond. Every day is different in my role and fresh with new opportunities to help improve how all our great team members can get you to your new home with a relaxed and content smile on your face!
When I’m not immersed in the day to day of You Move Me, I love to get out on some of the great hikes and mountain peaks in the area as well as lace up the shoes for an occasional run.
Hey! My name is Danielle and I am the Customer Experience Manager at You Move Me Vancouver.
I have been living in Vancouver since March 2016 when I moved here from Scotland and have been working at You Move Me just as long! I will be your main point of contact in the run-up to and during your move. I have been working hard with our team to make every customer’s move one that will be forever remembered.
When I am not at work, I enjoy travelling around BC on camping trips. I love the outdoors and where better to go than Canada’s renowned national parks!? During the winter months I enjoy disappearing up any of Vancouver’s local mountains with my snowboard.

Hi! I'm Jeff, and I'm currently the Sales Manager at You Move Me Vancouver.
I have been part of the company since the spring of 2015 and started out as a mover and worked my way up to being a Crew Leader running my own crews! The satisfaction I have gained in creating a stress-free moving environment for every customer while running countless stairs and carefully transporting their contents through tight hallways have really helped me understand and manage our friendly movers as efficiently as possible.
Over the past few years, I have developed a great number of management skills and developed many long lasting relationships with happy customers all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. I am proud of these relationships as it has helped You Move Me Vancouver grow substantially into a successful Greater Vancouver business as well as the role it has played in my personal development coming out of university.
During my downtime, I take advantage of our great outdoors and love to camp and hike in the most beautiful back country in the world. In fact, I enjoy it most when I am able to take our You Move Me team on these outings as we always have a good time bonding as we have one of the most tight-knit groups I have ever been a part of. I also love watching and playing sports, having played on my high school basketball, volleyball and football teams competitively and still play as a recreation past time. I am a die-hard Vancouver Canuck fan and try to go to as many home games as possible each season and am very excited with our new look young and developing team.
I look forward to meeting you in discussing the best moving strategies for your upcoming move!

A bit of background of me, in the past 20+ years I have worked in Customer Experience for many small, medium and large companies.

Hi, my name is Arthur, and I'm a Sales Associate at You Move Me Vancouver.
Working in the moving industry for me goes back to 2012, when I was part of over 200 hundred moves in Australia.
Fast forward almost 10 years, here I am meeting with dozens of customers every week to assist them on their move, in the best YMM fashion: with lots of empathy, care, efficiency and passion for the service.
During my spare time, I'm likely to be doing sports (outdoors preferred), cooking or playing music, all while enjoying my time with loved ones!

The were also friendly and polite making the move much more pleasant than I had expected it to be. I will be hiring You Move Me Vancouver again if we ever move and definitely recommend them.”
