Owner, Robert Johnston

Robert Johnston, aka Bob the Mover,  is a second generation mover who grew up around moving vans so it’s no surprise he jumped into the business straight out of school and began a 30 year moving journey. Robert began his career with Scarboro Movers in West Hill, Ontario driving a tractor trailer locally and in 1989 bought his first truck through Scarboro and hauled household goods to British Columbia & California. The west coast lure gripped Robert and he moved to North Vancouver, BC in 1990. In 2000 Robert obtained a US Immigration Work Visa, moved to Southern California and contracted to a multi branch major van line affiliated agent where he gained valuable experience and knowledge in Immigration regulations, US / Canadian customs procedures, logistical planning and corporate sales.

With an emphasis on superior customer service Robert founded Cool Moves Vancouver in 2007 under the mandate of exceeding each customer’s expectations – every move.

Squeezed into all this, Robert earned a Bachelor of Business Adminstration – Finance (Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC). During his spare time he’s a fitness enthusiast and avid hiker.
