About us


Your movers on Vancouver Island since 1945

Many things have changed over the last 75+ years, but one thing remains the same – Greaves Moving & Storage is still the best choice for moving on Vancouver Island. Since 1945, we have built our reputation by offering top notch service and completing our client’s moves on-time, and on-budget. In 2017, Greaves Moving & Storage was acquired by the Sweenie Family, who is committed to not only continue that legacy, but actively work to cement our reputation as the best mover on Vancouver Island.

A northAmerican Agent

As an agent for northAmerican Van Lines, we serve both Provincial and Federal Government relocations as well as local and cross country residential and commercial moves.


Our growth is driven by happy clients

Moving is always a stressful event, and we work hard to make sure it’s a positive experience. We understand that moving is more than just transporting your stuff. It’s your entire life, in our truck. Your memories, your prized possessions and your future are in our hands and we take that seriously by treating your items as though they were our own.

Whether you need a piano, armoire or safe transported to a new location, or you’re moving a ten-bedroom home, Greaves has you covered. Whether your final destination is across the street, or across the country, we have the trucks, the staff and the systems to make your next move go smoothly.

Last week we had Greaves undertake our move from the Cowichan Valley to Victoria. We just wanted to provide some feedback to you. We have undergone many moves over the years. This move was by far the best one! The crew were courteous, professional, and respectful. Cody & Darcy did a fantastic job of coordinating everything so that the crew was safe and understood what needed to be done. Kobe, Ben & Jackson did a great job too. There was zero damage to the house or our belongings, which is a first in our moves. Please pass along our appreciation to the crew. They deserve a pat on the back. Thanks.

Amazing experience. Dan the assessor was super polite, professional and accurate! We decided to move a week earlier and Greaves kindly accommodated the change at a moments notice. The four men who showed up were on time, professional and very, very hard working. They took good care of our home by bringing and laying their own runners, disassembling and reassembling furniture and wrapping up fragile or breakable pieces. They put everything in our new home as per our labelled boxes - nothing out of place! They were so nice and so fast!! I highly recommend this team. Thank you Greaves!! 😊👏🏻

The office staff, particularly Dan the assessor, are as nice as the driver and movers. They were all cheerful and ready to go the extra mile and I'd use them again in a heartbeat. They even took all the moving quilts back with them from another company whose office staff was 'NOT so nice' to pick up and refund a $100 deposit. Highly recommend ❣️ It was a 3 hr drive, a ferry, more driving and putting together a 3 bedroom house, garage and cabin and YET we were done by noon. All that was left for me to do was put up the decorative touches and attend to my wardrobe. I thought they were pretty amazing. 😊

We moved from Chicago to Victoria. Greaves was the receiving agent for our goods. The held our goods until we cleared customs. We were very happy with them. They told us how to clear customs, the let us into our stuff while it was in storage to pull out some clothes. Friendly staff. Would use them again.
