About Swain Moving & Storage Ltd

Swain Moving & Storage Ltd is locally owned and operated by Lance Verbosh, and Mike Vrebosh. As a family business, we strive to make sure that your move is as smooth as possible.

Today, we offer free estimates, 100% insurance coverage, packing materials, and free wardrobes to all our customers with every job.

Our Fleet Consists of 5-tons, 1-tons and a Delivery/Service Vehicle

It is our goal to adhere to the highest maintenance and safety standards. All of our trucks are fully licensed and insured for our entire operations, incidental to your specific relocation needs.


Our trucks are regularly serviced, maintained, cleaned and government-inspected after every trip. Each truck is equipped with loading ramps, furniture pads, dollies and other necessary tools to help with the move.


Also, each of our qualified drivers is licensed, experienced and well-trained to ensure the safe handling of your items from the loading point to their destination.

We are a family-owned business that operates with pride, integrity and honesty.

Absolutely Delightful Experience

“I've had a “Murphy’s Law” kind of move…”whatever can go wrong, will go wrong”. There was one exception…the absolutely delightful experience we had with Swain Moving & Storage Ltd. The four fellows from Swain were extremely efficient, knowledgeable and professional, and without exception were a joy to work with. They went above and beyond expectations and were truly the shining light in an otherwise stressful move. I highly recommend this company. They are definitely the best of the best. Thank you, Swain Moving & Storage Ltd. You exemplify what good service is all about, and then some!”
