Thanks so much for managing our office move from downtown Vancouver to Maple Ridge. We were really pleased with how quickly you had us out of the old office and into the new. You and your team were extremely professional, courteous, and even full of humour throughout the day. Yours is a difficult, and I suspect often thankless job, which is why I wanted to take a few minutes and say THANK YOU for a job well done. We'd recommend you to anyone needing to move their home or their office in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley area.

Homestead Movers Save the Day!

We had booked our move two months in advance with a Maple Ridge company who ended up canceling on us at the last minute. Thank goodness for James and his crew at Homestead Moving! They were actually in Nanaimo doing a move when I called him in a panic after the first company left us stranded. He said they could catch an afternoon ferry and be at our house between 4:00 and 4:30. They arrived on time all the way from the Island, were cheerful and friendly, and did the whole move quickly yet carefully, making sure everything in the truck was protected with furniture covers. Their slogan of "Old Fashioned Values You Can Trust" is really one you can believe. Thank you so much Homestead, you really saved the day!

Dear Diane Kalyk:

Thank you for your email regarding your recent positive experience with the above company. We appreciate receiving email such as yours, as the majority of the email we receive at the Better Business Bureau are complaints.

We wish to thank the wonderful movers we had for our move. Not only were they extremely careful and friendly but they were really hardworking, despite it being nearly 35 degrees out! Thanks again James and crew for the fantastic effort and peace of mind throughout. Your crew made a normally stressful day so much easier. My husband has already recommended your services to several colleagues.

Thanks again!

James and his guys moved us from Port Moody to Oliver and did an awesome job. They were friendly, polite and hard working. The move was a big one for us... James and his guys went the extra mile and made the move non-stressful. I would highly recommend them to my friends, family and anyone in need of great movers!

The following testimonial was sent via email to Better Business Bureau of Mainland BC

To whom it may concern:

My family and I would like to praise the working attitude, honesty and dedicated service provided by the crew of Homestead, namely, James (owner), Doug and Andrew for a job well done.

James came to our aid when we called him the day before our arranged move from Port Coquitlam to Maple Ridge.

We had pre-arranged with another moving company (McLean Moving) a month earlier but only found out the day before our move that they went out of business and cashed in our deposit unethically.

With our nerves all jittery and trust in shambles, James guaranteed he would be there the next morning and with no deposit from us needed.

He even called the next morning to assure me that he was on his way and will be there shortly. His rates are very reasonable and his crew, the perfect gentlemen, took the utmost care of moving our belongings.

I have told my story to more than 10 friends and have referred and handed out his business cards to them.

Yours sincerely,
Christopher Fernandez

I recommend Homestead Moving Company. They relieved me of my fears about using a moving company. They took great care in loading, packing and unloading all of our worldly possessions. The men were very courteous and worked their butts off.

If you want a great moving company, call on Homestead!

To the great guys at Homestead Moving, namely Jim, Jeff and Troy.

We moved from Maple Ridge to Mission on May 31st and these three guys worked like dogs all day - only stopping once for lunch when we finally shoved sandwiches into their hands and once more when we brought them slushes to help cool them down. It was an incredibly hot day and we had alot of stuff - that huge truck was packed floor to ceiling and right to the very door!. The rates were reasonable, the guys were professional and very, very polite and respectful. I have absolutely no qualms about recommending Homestead Moving! Thank you for helping making our move a great day!

Homestead Moving Company, A few months back we hired Homestead Moving to move our household items from Maple Ridge to Langley. James and his crew were professional, they took extra care with all our belongings and we made the move with no (nothing broken), casualties.

The Homestead website is also very helpful and professional, with important instructions on how to pack boxes and how to organize your move. They are also a member of the Better Business Bureau. The bottom line is they are pros!

Homestead attended with a three man crew and they were able to move all our household items very quickly, they are very well worth having for any move and we would hire them again the next time we move without hesitation.

Thanks James for everything.

Simon Hardman

Thought we would drop you a quick thankyou. Cecil and Doug... outstanding! Homestead Moving... outstanding! Our belongings were well looked after and handled with care. Cecil and Doug were friendly, hard working, and professional. We will most definately call upon Homestead Moving to handle our next move. I would recommend, without any hesitation, this outstanding group of young men to anyone who is looking for a moving company. All mover's should follow the work ethic of Homestead Moving. Thanks to everyone involved!!!

Dear James,

I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how pleased I was with our move you folks did, I moved on Dec1st, a miserable cold day and your men were one time, which is a real rarity these days particularly when it snows in Vancouver. They were pleasant, and very easy to work with. Your men were professional, kept all parts of my condo and halls clean and ensured the safety of our building. I really appreciate the effort you folks made to make my move as quick and pleasant as a move can be. I would recommend you and your company Homestead Moving to anyone who asks me for a mover. I hope I don't have to move again for awhile but when I do I will definitely be calling you again!

Thanks again for your professional service with a smile on a cold moving day in Vancouver.

Best Regards,
Darlene Doyle

"I used Homestead as my moving service at the end of October 2005. In the past I have had 'very' bad experiences with other moving companies. What a pleasant surprise to find Homestead excellent in their care, timeliness and friendly nature. Made this experience the best I have had so far - and I have moved a lot! Would not hesitate to use them again - and refer them to my friends."

I would like to take a moment to thank Jamie and his crew for moving me into my new apartment this past month. I was not looking forward to moving to a 3-story walk-up, but really liked the apartment and building. It was a difficult move, with many heavy items and no elevator, 43 steps to my suite on the 3rd floor. They were real pros and had the job done in record time. I was most impressed, they took very good care of my furniture and made the whole experience very stress free Thanks again you guys. I will recommend you to anyone I know who is moving.

Valerie Sherman,

We called on services from Homestead Moving Company for our last 2 moves. James and Cecil were wonderful! What impressed me most was the care they took with our possessions. Living in a newly renovated home there were concerns with new hardwood flooring and fresh paint. James and Cecil took extra precautions to ensure our belongings and home were protected with blankets, shrink-wrap and padding.

They have a great sense of humour, they are polite and extremely professional. If that weren't enough, I had a flat tire the day of the move and the guys followed me to a service station then proceeded to put my spare tire on. True gentlemen.

We look forward to using Homestead again, what terrific guys. I would strongly recommend Homestead Moving for your next move. Thank you again.

Below is my letter of commendation for Homestead Moving.

Last week, after consulting the Yellow Pages and calling your office, I booked the Homestead Moving company to move some appliances from Abbotsford to Napier Street.

I am aware that in the majority of cases, the only time you hear comments with respect to one of your members is if the client has some sort of problem.

In this instance, I am very happy to report that I could not have been more pleased with the timeliness, courtesy, professionalism and exemplary service that I received from Homestead Moving. The staff went above and beyond normal service requirements, even removing the two doors from my refrigerator so that it could fit through the doorway.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company and itís employees for any type of moving or cartage job. I would be pleased if this letter could become part of your record for this company.

Yours truly,
Sharon Manoloudis

We have had occasion to use Homestead Moving twice in the last year. The first time we picked them from their ad in the Yellow Pages. Jamie and Jim showed up on time, surveyed the household contents and immediately started loading the truck. They work very steady and very hard, the whole time ensuring that my furniture and belongings were handled with care. We were very impressed and soon felt at ease as the loading progressed.

The second move, we called them back without hesitation and again, we received outstanding service. Not only do Jamie and Jim do their job well, they arrive looking clean and presentable and both are very personable.

We highly recommend Homestead Moving for small or large moving jobs and would definitely use them again in the future.

Dear Jamie,

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for us during our recent move. I have no idea what I would have done without you and Cecil. Up until the day of the move I had no help at all and wasn't sure how we were going to finally get into our new house.

You guys showed up and knew what to do and how to arrange the whole move. Before that, I was totally lost and your professionalism, confidence and experience set me at ease instantly. It was the first time in a long time that someone had said to me "Don't worry about it" and took over. All at once I felt like everything was going to be ok. And for that I really want you to know how thankful I am.

It was a very stressful time in my life and you made the transition go so smoothly. You really are the kindest people I've ever met! I never expected for you to be as helpful as you were. You went above and beyond for my family and me.

Being on my own I didn't have much help at all until you guys came along, I really feel like you went out of your way for me. You guys were there to help me with all the things I was unable to do on my own.

After moving everything in my house and all the boxes too you went out of your way for me. Once we got into the new place, I'm sure you were just as exhausted as I was. At that point I thought you guys were getting ready to go and then I saw Cecil come in with his tools and was so happy to see him put our beds back together that night. I thought we were going to sleep on the mattresses on the floor that night!

You were both very kind and extremely patient with us and every time anyone mentions getting help with their move I always tell them about Homestead Moving. You were very gentle with my belongings and got us here safe and sound.

Thank you, Jamie!

To James,

A special thankyou to Jim, Jeff and Troy. You guys moved a house full of antiques without a hitch. You did heavy lifting, took it apart and put it all back together in record time. I can't thank you enough!


James, thank you very much for your help today moving our family from our townhouse to our new house. We appreciate the extreme care you took moving and packing our furniture and all our other household items. We also appreciate the cheery positive attitude of you and all of your staff. The hard work, enthusiasm, and sense of humour of you and your staff made the usually stressful and unpleasant process of moving an enjoyable positive experience. We would very highly recommend your company to any of our friends or family that are moving!

Richard and Carol Wong

Good afternoon James,

My wife and I were extremely pleased with the moving capabilities of your company. We noticed that your staff took their time packing the truck well, strapping our things down securely for the drive. All of our items arrived safely and on time, and your staff was friendly and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done properly and on time.

I'd gladly move with Homestead again.

I wish to acknowledge you and your staff for so ably assisting me with my recent move. I experienced courteous, enthusiastic, hardworking staff dedicated to handling my belongings with care and concern.

I was well satisfied with the service you offered and would recommend your company to others in need of moving assistance.
