Moving from Calgary to Vancouver

Hey guys,

My company is moving me from Calgary to Vancouver in a couple of months. I am wondering if any of you guys know a reliable company that can take care of moving my car? How much am I looking at (including full insurance) to pay for this?

Also any company that can take care of moving my house items too?

I appreciate any help/feedback.

Just drive man. It only takes a day and it's spectacular.

As for moving companies -- try VanKam

Company pays up to a certain amount for moving, so I don't want to put 1000 KM on my car, when I can fly there and expense everything.

I will check out www.vankam.com for sure, thanks!

I thought you could ship your car with VanKam.

For personal moving I recommend Bekins Moving

Just used Hansens to move an M3 from Vancouver to Toronto and +1 for them. Very happy with the service

Just got the quote from Hensens, they are asking for $630 all in which I think it is a great price. Most likely will go with them.

Thanks for your feedback, did you pay anything extra for insurance? How much totally did you end up paying? You drove the car to them in Vancouver and then you went to their location in Toronto and picked up the car?

Thanks.

Already did that leg back in September via Lake Louise & Okanagan. I'd bring your car to Vancouver if you get me a return ticket

I would drive the car... Depending on where you live in Van and work 1000 km is going to be the fewest miles your car sees... Besides M cars are for driving enjoy the ride...

Congrats on the new job!

I love this road too, but when the company pays for the move, I have a hard time convincing myself to put 1000+ KM on my car. By the way, it is the same job/company, just different location.
