Les Ewener

Dear Ron,
My name is Les Ewener and I am caretaker of the building, Carriage House at 2445 W 3rd Ave, Vancouver where you moved out ste *** today and I want to congratulate you on what a great team of movers you had perform this move.  Michael, Micah and Colin wwere most professional, organized, cheerful , careful of the building lobby area and outside and left the area super clean.  In short they were probably the best movers I have experienced in the 25+ years I’ve been the Caretaker of the Carriage House, an absolute delight to work with.  BRAVO and a tip of this Caretaker’s hat to you and your workers.

Our consultant Becky was fabulous!…friendly, knowledgeable and provided us with good tips and a very honest assessment of LaPorte pricing vs the other two movers from whom we received estimates. The move out crew was fantastic!…led by Omur, who went above and beyond to disassemble our elyptical machine. Our furniture was in storage until we returned from vacation and Omur and crew were right on time for the delivery to our new home! Omur and Hasan worked their butts off for our move-in! The new home has the lower floor at ground level…14 stairs to the main floor and then 13 more stairs to the upper level…we really appreciated how hard Omur and Hasan worked to ensure our move-in was completed efficiently and error free! We could not be more delighted with their customer focus and service! The next time we move…we will request Omur and Hasan!!…thanks guys!!…Shane & Diane

Although our furniture is still in your storage in Vancouver, I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you and your staff for their professional service.

Darlene, the first voice one hears on the telephone when calling your office, was always calm, patient and helpful. She clearly answered all my questions or passed me to someone who could. Since our last move was 27 years ago, I found myself calling Darlene, just to be sure that what I was expecting to happen would, in fact happen, right on time and with very capable personnel. It did.

Rachael, the lady who came to the house before the moving crew arrived, quietly and efficiently wrapped our mirrors and paintings.

And then, a few days later, the movers came. Mike Jamieson, Colin, Rob Watson and Ali, the men who loaded the truck, were careful and constantly busy getting things into the truck and ready for storage. I enjoyed the camaraderie among the packers. They worked well as a crew.

So I would like to thank you and your staff for their good work ethic and their helpful and friendly assistance.

Hi Darlene,

  A long time coming but I just wanted to thank you and your crew for my excellent moving day in May.  As you know my concern was getting my piano from the truck to the lower level of my new home.  Mike H., Chad and Darryl took great care to ensure the piano made it to it’s new location unharmed.  It was interesting to watch as they carefully rolled it down the grassy hill.  See pictures attached. 

  The crew was friendly, personable and attentive during the entire move.  Things went smoothly and all my ‘stuff’ arrived intact.  I would definitely refer any friends who might be moving to Laporte based on my experience.

  Please pass along my thanks to Mike, Chad and Darryl.

Hi Crystal,

I want to thank LaPorte Moving for an outstanding job, the team operated with precision and efficiency and overcame numerous unexpected obstacles very expertly. They worked very well together and provided several suggestions that made my move far better than I expected.

Hi Becky,

Thank you again for all your help with our recent move. We found LaPorte Moving to be very professional throughout the moving process. From the start of the quote process to the departure of the last mover, the staff and movers from LaPorte made every effort to ensure our move was as low stress as possible.

We were impressed with the moving team of Omar, Hasan, Rob and Sebastian. They were all hard workers, efficiently moving boxes and furniture out and packing the van. They were considerate of our cats, careful with our possessions and polite and supportive during what could have been a very stressful day. They were equally efficient on the move in at the other end, cheerfully reassembling furniture and thoughtfully recommending padded feet for furniture that in our new home would be sitting on hard wood floors. Definitely, this was the A team and we truly appreciated their professionalism and good work ethic.

Thank you again for all your efforts. It was a pleasure working with you Becky and with the LaPorte Moving team. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others contemplating a move.

Kind regards, Ali & Roger Holt

The movers arrived a little earlier than expected, which was helpful. They were very respectful, careful and attentive to our properties and belongings. They worked quickly, efficiently and were very organized. Zero damage was done. They were all very polite, personable, communicative and cooperative with an enjoyable sense of humour. They listened to every request and were very willing to accommodate any requests or changes. They also made smart recommendations about where to place items considering the space needed to unpack and so forth. They had ample blankets and tape to wrap and protect much of our belongings. We appreciated that they appeared to take appropriate breaks so as to not overexert themselves. It’s good to see them taking care of themselves as clearly that affects their quality of work. We were moving from a home with a front set of stairs to a three-level town home so there were a lot of stairs, narrow hallways and corners and they did incredibly well within that structure.

Hi Carly, Theresa, Becky and the Laporte Elf Team!

We are still in the process of helping a few more Starlight families that could not make it to the Joy of Sharing on Saturday but I wanted to send you and your Laporte Team a huge THANK YOU for helping make this incredible event happen again this year! Your donation of a truck and two incredibly good-hearted and hard-working elves made easy work of a big job! Your elves worked tirelessly but always had a smile and joke to make the job go quickly and smoothly…and they even let us take their photos!

 I always come away from this particular event feeling humble, emotional and full of the joy of the season and wanted to send a huge thank you to each and every one of you for making this year extra special and absolutely amazing! We helped 66 Starlight families have a Christmas this year…when many are struggling to make it through the holidays.

Do you believe we truly make a difference in the lives of our Starlight families? I DO…because we hear it from them all the time! And…we couldn’t do it without YOU!

Merry Christmas one and all…Heather

Dear Darlene;

Yesterday I moved after being 20 years in the same town house to a smaller condo.  Your movers, Mike H. Chad and Darryl were a fantastic team, courteous, hard working, kind and very understanding.  I even got a well need hug from Mike before he left, he had realized the move was not easy for me. 

I am not moving again, but I will fully recommend your company from now on.

Please let them know I did appreciate their work and put a gold start in their book.

Thanks again.
