Area’s Leading Restoration Contractor

“Dear Swain,

I am writing to thank you for the many years of dependable service you have provided to Downs Construction Ltd.


Downs Construction has been using Swain Moving for over fourteen years. As the area’s leading restoration contractor, people depend on us to get the job done! We need business partners who are able to perform, and you excel!


We value what other people value in a moving company. Your staff presents themselves professionally. I would describe them as organized, careful and considerate. They arrive to the job when they say they will, assess the project, and get to work. Mike and the crew can get even the most difficult items moved, safely.


In many situations we need to move people’s belongings because of a flood or fire. People are stressed, and your professionalism puts people more at ease.


You might remember a situation where we were moving a customer’s master bedroom into the upstairs loft area, so they could live at their house during the reconstruction of their main floor. It was an older home, and the bed would not fit up the stairs. You and the crew were able to winch the bed over the back deck railing and into the upper floor. That level of experience and ingenuity really stands out.


Thanks again for the many years of service.”

Very Convenient and Reasonable

“Abebooks has been using Swain Moving Ltd. for the past 4 years, for everything from our major move from our 2 locations, to one central location in 2001, plus several small internal moves. We have also moved large pieces of very sensitive computer equipment offsite with the expertise of Swain Moving Ltd.


The best part of Swain (other than their friendly staff) is their fast and efficient service. As is the case with most businesses, when a decision is made to move departments, it is at the eleventh hour, Lance, Steve, and the gang are always willing to pitch in and get the job done with little notice. They have been known to offer great suggestions along with time and space saving ideas that have bailed me out on many occasions.


Swain also provides storage for Abebooks, which is very convenient and reasonable. Abebooks has been so pleased with the service that we receive that several employees (including myself) have used them for personal moves. Way to go guys, and keep up the great work!”


- Abebooks, Victoria, BC

You and Your Men Were the Best

“Just a word of thanks to you & your men who made my move to Sidney on Aug 27th a reality. Our elevator will be up and running by tomorrow. I’d have still been waiting to move in had it not been for the caring way you assured me that you would move my furniture up the stairs.


You & your men were the best, & I appreciate your being there as well when the fireplace was brought upstairs. Many thanks to all of you.”


- Diana R., Sidney, BC

Absolutely Amazing

“We used this company for our last move from a referral from a friend. These guys are absolutely amazing! Took care of our belongings and are super friendly. Steve is an absolute pleasure to work with and his entire team is beyond professional and a great group of guys. Will definitely use again if needed and refer anyone to them! Thanks again!”

Knowledgeable and Professional

“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!”
