Protecting your goods is our priority

We are in the business of moving your belongings within your Province, across the country or around the world. We believe that it is our job to protect your belongings and make sure they arrive safely to your new home.

So, what do we do differently than any other moving company or van line to help protect your goods?

You pay a fee (valuation premium) to declare a value on your goods for insurance purposes. We pay the majority of this valuation premium back to our Agent / Haulers to take extra care of your belongings. If they damage your goods, they pay a portion of this fee for your claim. If your goods are damage free, they retain 100% of this premium. 

 A simple reward formula – prevent damage earn more, cause damage earn less. This formula is proven and it works, and is the reason we have one of the lowest claim ratios in the industry.

The Great Canadian Way

Our Pricing System

We provide you with full transparency pricing – which means no hidden or undisclosed surcharges. Simple, transparent and affordable pricing!

Faster Delivery Times

We created more direct routing and scheduling. This allows us to move your goods quickly and get them to your new home in your scheduled delivery period.

Low Claim Rate

Our moving team is paid extra for taking greater care of your belongings. This results in happy customers and one of  the lowest claim ratios in Canada.

Just wanted to write and let you know how happy we were to have chosen Great Canadian Van lines again for our second cross-Canada move in five years. Yet again our move went off without a hitch!

Eleanor & Brock

Great Canadian handled everything in such a positive and caring manner. We will always remember how you saved our move – and our sanity!

Karen & Andrew

You really are the most honest and best movers I have ever worked with!

Damage, delays and missing items can occur during your move and if they do we will work hard to resolve your claim. Submit your claim here and our team will be in contact with you within two business days.

If your claim is for Late Delivery, a fee of up to $100/day that your shipment is late (excluding Statutory Holidays and Sundays) will be deducted from your final invoice at the time of delivery.
