In 1924, Mr. Wilke purchased an already established moving business and over the years accomplished many “firsts” in upgrading equipment in order to provide a superior service.
Since the 1989 purchase by The Campbell Group of Companies, we have seen the company grow from a local mover to a company that completed the closing and disbursement of the Seagram’s Museum, the world’s largest collection of mini liquor bottles as well as priceless artifacts to collections around the world.
Our commitment to achieving excellence systems from our commitment to maintaining our family name within United Van Lines and ensuring another successful 100 years in the relocation industry.
United Van Lines (Canada) Ltd. is a privately held company owned by Canadians. The United family consists of 175 qualified moving companies located in various cities across the country.
Together, United and its Members provide a seamless network to move you anywhere in Canada, the U.S., or around the world.
United handles more than 40% of the Canadian market and has provided moving services to more than 7 million addresses from coast to coast. This year, United Van Lines will move
more than 35,000 shipments.
Why do more Canadians trust United Van Lines?
Quite simply, United takes better care of its customers and their belongings. United Van Lines is recognized as the industry leader as a result of their consistently superior performance.
Sixty years ago, a few men had a simple dream; to create a Canadian owned van line and stretch it from coast to coast. Today, United Van Lines is Canada’s largest network of moving companies and is 100% Canadian owned and operated. For more than 60 years, we’ve watched Canada grow and as the roads opened, United was there, moving Canadians where life took them.
Although the name United Van Lines is synonymous with household furniture moving, United and our Member companies have the expertise and experience to handle commercial shipments, trade shows and exhibits, office moving, and storage.
In life, few events match the stress of moving. In this busy time of new beginnings and major changes, we appreciate that you place a great deal of trust and responsibility with us. Moving everything you own is a very personal experience and something we don’t take lightly… ever.
United is getting greener and greener! With over 200 locations across Canada, we care about keeping our local communities clean and green for many years to come. We are dedicated to improving our environment by reducing waste and improving efficiency in our daily operations.
United has worked hard to become a paperless work environment. With online systems being implemented, our Member movers and Van Line personnel can enter notes, track a shipment, share information and create online invoices without ever using a sheet of paper. Our customers can even submit information online, such as quality surveys and claims forms when necessary.
Quilted Furniture blankets are used to wrap and protect your possessions when preparing for a move. Once they become unusable for your household items they are used to wrap less valuable items such as lawn and garden tools.
For efficiency and safety, when our long distance Service Fleet tractors and trailers reach a certain mileage they are sold or used for local moving work. Our containers are taken off of the long distance fleet after 15 years and sold to companies and farmers for local storage.
United has a container manufacturing facility where we build and maintain our containers. This facility recycles the wood, steel and cardboard that is used in the manufacturing process.
United and our Members use cartons that contain recycled material, and Kraft packing paper that is 100% recyclable. All of our offices also work hard to recycle paper, cans, bottles, cardboard and toner cartridges.
I was concerned with the number of people, but the ones that were there did their jobs with a positive attitude, and a surprising bounce in their step, even at the end of the move. Of particular note was Umar Stewar. He approached his job with great care, attention to detail, and tremendous energy. I was so impressed with his attitude, I would like to schedule my move into the new house around his availability.”
