See what people are saying about us and our services...
"Firstly it was a pleasure to meet and work with you. Your estimate was bang on and your words of wisdom stood me well. Your crews were delightful. Cheerful and very hard-working people. You and they made a very stressful event happen smoothly and more quickly than I had imagined possible. I will sing Bandstra's praises."
Catharin (Vancouver, BC)
"My husband and I want to take this opportunity to comment on your wonderful staff that assisted us with our packing and move... [the crew] arrived on time to pack our kitchen, dining room, and art. Immediately on their arrival they put out the runners and got to work packing. They were organized and efficient. We were impressed with their friendly demeanor and willingness to please. They were patient with all our questions. They worked well as a team and we were impressed with their professionalism and sense of responsibility. When they left they shook our hands and wished us all the best in our new home. [During delivery, the crew] also listened patiently to all our questions and remained cheerful and positive throughout the day. They were horrified and apologetic when some grease got tracked onto the rugs. [One employee] immediately took responsibility and together we got a rug cleaner to come within an hour. Several hours later they figured out how the grease got tracked in. Obviously they take pride in their work and this mishap was not acceptable to them. We appreciated their professionalism and sense of responsibility. When everything was packed into the containers this team also shook our hands and wished us well in our new home."

"I wanted to tell you on the phone what a GREAT TEAM you had to manage my packing/move. They are courteous, helpful, pleasant and efficient, to say the least. It was a very good and pleasant experience with all three of them."
Laura (Vancouver, BC)
"Thank you for sending your "A" team. We could not be more pleased with the team of seven who loaded out our house on Bowen - very efficient, courteous, obliging and hard-working... And of course the courteous, efficient service of the switchboard operator, the sales team, and the dispatcher were part of the overall great experience for us."

"Just wanted to thank you for a job professionally done. Everyone was courteous, careful, and in control, both in Vancouver and Prince George. When next I need things moved, I will call on Bandstra again."
Donna (Vancouver, BC)
"The three men dispatched today to do the move were just wonderful. Today was very diffucult - the place was not fully packed and the house was very disorganized. Your employees were splendid. They helped me when I just wanted to burst into tears. They were calm, organized and very hard working. I could not have gotten through the day without them. I will be very happy to recommend your service and your moving staff at any time."
Anne (Osoyoos, BC)
"Thank you for all your work on making the move manageable for our family!”
"Just wanted to say thanks for everything! The move went smoothly and your company was great to deal with. On the receiving end the crew was super! Bill said he too had a great group of guys loading and obviously so—all goods appear in great condition thus far. So thank-you!!!"
Jessica and Bill
“Very satisfied with the prompt response from the company upon inquiring information for their services, never put on hold, always had a person answer the call as opposed to an answering services. Were able to answer any questions or concerns I had right away. As I was unable to be at the place of residence that I was moving from, I had a friend that dealt with the movers and she was very impressed with the 2 movers, very professional and friendly. The 2 same movers delivered my household wares and very professional, friendly and more than helpful and considering I had packed all my own household nothing was broken… I will use this company again and recommend to others."

Please tell them THANKS so much on my behalf & I look forward to hearing my things get to Ontario OK, I don't think I have to worry about that & I am so glad to have called you guys for my move."
Sergio (Ontario, Oklahoma, United States)
"Thank you for the quotes and the wonderful service. I will keep your company in mind for any long distance moving in the future and recommend it to others that are doing the same. Now I understand why my boss uses your company for its shipping needs. I hope that you have a nice day."
"I would like to take a brief moment to advise you how impressed my family and I were with your company during our recent transfer from Williams Lake to Parksville. I have moved seven times during my 15 year RCMP career and your company by far, is the best that I have worked with. The contractor that did the actual move for us was fantastic. They were extremely professional, competent and well prepared for the job. I have had several moves where I questioned the abilities of the people entering my home to pack my effects, this was not the case with this crew. These two men provided an outstanding service, both at my former home in Williams Lake and at my new home in Parksville. Please pass along my appreciation for their efforts and a job well done. You truly minimized the stress that can occur with these transfers and I thank you for that."
Brian (Parksville, BC)
"I am writing you in regards to one of your drivers, I must apologize I have forgotten his name. I was returning home from a formal business dinner in Williams Lake on a dark cold and windy night and wouldn't you know it I got a flat tire, being a typical woman and wearing a light coat and dress I was not prepared to change my tire even if I did know how. I reached for my cell phone and just my luck no service, thanks [cell phone provider]. I now realized I was in a bad spot and was not sure what to do so I figured the lesser of evils was to flag down a big truck and get some help. Well after trying to flag a truck for over an hour with no luck I had given up on my fellow man, when all of a sudden this big red truck pulled up behind me with his flashers going. The driver jumped out and stuck out his hand introducing himself; again I am sorry I forgot his name, anyways he told me he had heard on his radio that I was stopped here so he figured he would see if he could lend a hand. He asked me to pop the trunk and proceeded to jack up my car and remove the flat, I figured I should help if I could but after the wind blew my dress up what seemed like over my head, total embarrassment, your driver suggested I sit in his truck until he was finished rather than in my car that was balancing on a jack. After he was done and had stowed away my jack and flat he returned to his truck, he told me that my little spare was not made to drive on for too far or too fast and suggested I go as far as 100 Mile House and get it fixed in the morning. He gave me the number for a local tire shop and offered to follow me into town to make sure I made it ok. After we arrived in 100 Mile House and I prepared to turn into a Hotel he drove by and honked his horn, at this point I was able to get a number off his truck. I hope you can identify the driver by this and thank him again for me he was indeed my knight in shining armour and has restored my faith in my fellow man.”
“When we moved into our new home in Terrace a few years ago, Mr. Bandstra came from his home across the street and offered his help. My husband had injured himself during the move and we had empty boxes and refuse all over our front yard. We must have looked a site. We hadn’t any idea what we were going to do with the mess in our yard. Out of the blue, Mr. Bandstra approached and said he had a truck and could he help remove our junk. We moved to Langley from Terrace a few years ago when the company picked our mover. This time it was our choice and there was never any doubt but that Bandstra would conduct our move. It’s this kind of good will, going the extra mile, that has made Bandstra Moving Systems a leader in our industry."
"Just a quick note to thank you and your crews for the excellent service, shipper describes move as the “Perfect Move”, shipper said your crews were the best, easy to work with, and they did an incredible job. Thanks again."
Mark (Prince George)
"Jon and I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the job you did in coordinating our move from Prince George to Powell River. We were very impressed in terms of coordinating the move, the speed & professionalism of the workers in moving our belongings and the overall smoothness of the entire process, both in Prince George & Powell River. It really took a lot of stress off of us knowing that our belongings were in such good hands. Everything arrived safe & sound. Thank you so much for all your help. Please pass along to the managers at Bandstra that you all did an awesome job. We will definitely recommend your company to our friends."
Susan (Powell River)
"Everything went really well! The driver who dropped off the truck was possibly the nicest human ever, and he was super helpful. Someone should tell his boss how great he was! Thank you so much for your help so far, you've been really great!
