We excel in local and long distance moving:

Our main services are residential moves for private family households or for corporate relocation. Our long haul cross-border or trans-Canada moving service is arranged with Atlas Van Lines, of which we are the local agent. We regularly move overseas as well and have outstanding interline connections to your advantage. We have a number of partners we arrange overseas shipping with, so we provide you full service, no matter how far you are moving.

All your moving needs under one roof:

At Ellis, we realize the value of end-to-end or full-service moving and storage solutions. We have a 20,000 square foot palletized storage facility in Vancouver to take care of your storage needs. We also offer packing and unpacking, so you can rest easy.

Amazing team. Great service! They wrapped everything so well and so quick. They had to move two houses into one (apartment and a home ) into a larger home with a steep drive way and lots of stairs. They did it so careful but so speedy! I would use them again!

This is the 4th time I have used Ellis and will continue to do so. I had 3 men and everything went well and fast. I am sure it is a challenge in these times but they got it done quickly and professionally.
