ABOUT US

Have you been wondering what business model suits you?

Establish a profitable business at low cost investment with a strong franchise growth potential.
Take a look at Metropolitan Movers Franchising today.

Metropolitan Movers was established in 2010 as a moving brokerage. Our focus from the very beginning was to deliver quality and professional customer service.

The clear vision and hard work resulted in our first Consumer Choice Award in 2012. Since then, we wanted to have more involvement and deliver the same standard of service across the country. That’s why we shifted to a franchise-based model and opened our first Markham and Richmond Hill locations in 2013. In 2016, we won a long-awaited but well-deserved Franchise Choice Award. Thanks to all our loyal franchise partners, back office support and our front-line teams, we successfully achieved several back-to-back Top Choice Awards for six years in a row!

Today, we are proud to provide stress-free moving and the best customer service across Canada to our customers as well as extensive support to all franchise moving business owners. All our franchise partners receive ongoing assistance in all areas of business development, such as marketing, sales, operational and technical support, no matter what part of the country they are in. Well designed and time-tested training program ensures that every member of our system is capable and knowledgeable to perform up to our standard from day one, and kept updated with the latest industry tendencies and practices.

Metropolitan Movers is looking to welcome like-minded people to expand our growing company. If you’ve ever thought about seeking out a franchise to make money, with limited liability, and which is a good low-cost investment, this is it. We treat every franchise partner as a member of the family, believing that they will welcome and treat our customers the same way. By ensuring that all our locations prosper, we can build a strong and sustainable corporation together.

Board of directors

ILIA GERCHIKOV

Chief Executive Officer

Taking over as CEO at Metropolitan Movers was a natural progression for Ilia. Ilia has previously been with the company for three years and knew the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of the business. What motivated running the company is that in many ways Metropolitan Movers is the ‘disruptor’ in the industry. Movers in Canada generally get a bad reputation and it has been a welcome challenge to build a business that prioritizes exceptional customer service. Repeating nominations and wins of the consumer choice awards speak for themselves. 

ALEXANDER KOCHAS

Chief Financial Officer

Alex started out as a regional manager in the company and grew with the business until he joined the head-office as one of the co-owners. It is important to Alex that Metropolitan Movers and its franchisees grow in a healthy, positive direction financially and in terms of customer and business-to-business relations. A lot of his focus has shifted from working with customers to working with business and franchise owners to high standard of service and profitability across all of our franchisees in Canada.
