Established on October 1st, 1938 by Guy Cesar, CESAR VAN AND STORAGE LIMITED
quickly gained a reputation for high quality moving and delivery services in the City of Hamilton.
Ownership of the company passed on to son-in-law Gord Thompson, and during his tenure,
Cesar Van and Storage became one of the originating members of

moving companies located in various centers across the country, Canada's largest and best performing van line.

agency to grow and advance with all the newest technology and industry changes that contribute to us being a leader in the

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.
“…all of our furniture was completely moved in by mid afternoon, nothing was damaged, most notably, our brand new hardwood floors. They treated our homes as if they were their own.”
