Piano and Antique Movers Serving Vancouver Island

If you are looking for piano and antique movers in Vancouver Island, the team at Swain Moving & Storage Ltd can help you. We understand that antiques and musical instruments are significant investments that require special care. They can be family heirlooms with which you may have emotional connections. We have the tools and expertise to move large instruments like pianos safely. Call us today for a free estimate.

Safe Transportation

Musical instruments and antiques need to be protected from extreme heat, cold or humidity as well as dirt, scratches and impacts. We secure movable parts of these items with straps and wrap them with protective blankets and padding. We then transport them to the truck using heavy-duty dollies and hand trucks. Your belongings are secured inside the truck for safe transportation.

Save on Costly Repairs

Are you thinking about moving a piano or some antiques by yourself to avoid expenses? If you aren’t familiar with moving costly and fragile items, we suggest you call a professional. By doing so, you can avoid paying for the damages that occur during the moving process. It can also protect you from being injured. We have the right tools to get the job done safely. Contact us for more information.

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!”
