Read Customer Reviews of Minute Men Moving & Storage

We used your services for our recent move to Kelowna. As you know there is a tendency for people to complain about issues rather to reward great service. So, we would like to redress that tendency by complementing you for great service. It began with a very professional estimate. Then the crew arrived and they were wonderfully professional, hardworking and pleasant to deal with. I am sure you this, but you must treat them like gold because they represent you well. I summary we did our research to pick the best, most professional moving company on Vancouver Island and you lived up o the billing in every way!

Mark B (Nanaimo to Kelowna)

Why do people enjoy dealing with Minute Men Moving & Storage? Find out for yourself by reading the customer reviews we’ve included on this page. If you would like to comment on your own experience with us, please feel free to leave a note in our contact form. We look forward to hearing from you! We recently moved from Nanaimo to Victoria. I cannot say enough about Nick and his team during loading and delivery. They were all so cheerful and willing and were so careful to see that the walls were not damaged. Apart from a couple of small broken items the valuable pieces and the furniture arrived safely. The quote was on the lower side, so the final payment was quite a bit higher. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to friends.

Brian M (Nanaimo to Victoria)

Awesome team with smiles on their faces from the beginning to the end of our office move. I was impressed by their efforts and willingness to make this move as smooth as possible. Nothing was too much for them! Will use definitely use them again!

Cathy B (Local Nanaimo)

Minute Men moved us from Gibsons to Salt Spring. It was a two-day project. Communications from dispatch at every point was great, both moving crews worked very, very hard, and everyone from booking to billing was super professional, helping us make a big hairy stressful, complicated move go very smoothly. Highly recommended!

Mike W (Gibsons to Salt Spring)

The crew were very courteous, fast, efficient, and arrived right on time! Would absolutely recommend for Minute Men all your moving and storage needs.

Allan V (Local Duncan)

Very happy with this moving company and would recommend to anyone! Thank you.

Maria T (Nanaimo to Courtenay)

We have moved on several different times due to work relocations. This was the best move by far, from the packing crew to the driver, and crew. The efficiency, professional conduct and concern for us as moves can be very stressful. Thank you to the packers, Keith (driver), Mitch and Gord loaders in Parksville. And thank you again to Keith and his crew in the efficiency at our new location. Keith said he would take care of us from beginning to the end of our move which he did. Thank you. Highly recommend Minute Men Moving & Storage to anyone needing movers.

Al M (Parksville to Calgary)

The Minute Men crew made moving with a newborn as easy as it could be. They were careful and quick and made sure to check in with me when putting things in their place in our new home. Hiring them to move us was an easy decision.

Donna C (Local Cobble Hill)

All the staff was very friendly and professional, I got my quote quickly and was able to book without any problems. The movers showed up on time and were prepared with extra boxes, bags for mattresses etc. They were extremely careful with our furniture and boxes.

Glen B (Local Nanaimo)

We recently used your services we made last week from Salt Spring to Nanaimo. It started with the Consultant coming out to our home to work out the logistics and gave us a quote. When the crew arrived, they were wonderfully professional, hard working and pleasant to deal with. I am sure you know this and must treat them like gold. In summary, we did a lot of research to pick the best, most professional moving company on Vancouver Island. They lived up to your billing in everyway.

Mitch B (Salt Spring to Nanaimo)

We moved in May 2019 across Canada from BC to NB. We have never moved this far, and it was a very stressful time for us as we were also travelling across Canada with 5 animals. The day of our moving when our driver Keith from Minute Men Moving & Storage arrived, he made us feel calm with his great professionalism and smiles. He and his crew were very professional and answered all of our questions throughout the load day. They all worked very hard and it was a long day for him and his crew. At our new destination location, he showed up on time and we got the same service as we did in BC. Keith from Minute Men Moving & Storage showed up with another great crew to off load. They reassembled everything they took apart and it all went smoothly. It was a long day again for Keith and his crew. If we ever move again (which I don’t think we will LOL) we would definitely request having Keith and Minute Men Moving & Storage again if that was possible. Myself and my husband would like to give this move a 10 out of 10. Keith your professionalism & happy self will take you far in this moving world.

Cathy G (Maple Ridge to New Brunswick)

Excellent service and yes, I would recommend your company and yes you may use that information to promote your business. Thanks again for the way you managed my move from Ontario to my home in and I would also complement your company on the price charged, it was fair and reasonable. I mention this because I saw an expose regarding rip-off fees charged by two bit “bargain” moving companies that misrepresent your industry and bilk customers on weights and mileage once they have control of the peoples’ goods. This is why I chose a reputable company that had been in business for a long time and had a good reputation. Thanks again for everything and keep up the good work!

John M (Sarnia, ON to Nanaimo, BC)

Thank you for a great move from great Team you sent to do our move. They were awesome in packing up my home for this move. They men were so efficient, so careful, it is worth a mention. Faced with a difficult day and yet late in the afternoon they kept pace and their sense of humour. What a Team! These men are a credit to your company.
