Moving with Containers

When your move takes you beyond BC, take advantage of our convenient container service for the transportation and/or short-term storage of your possessions.

Our long distance movers are on hand for packing, padding and preparing items for overseas shipment, or simply enjoy peace of mind knowing your things are protected until they’re ready to be moved by truck.

Bekins Vancouver Island containers offer:

  • Storage that’s secure and clean as well as rodent-proof and weatherproof
  • A range of sizes for easy separation and sealing of your goods
  • Short-term (30-day) storage

Third-party Services

When you’re moving invaluable and oversized items like vintage cars and high-end pool tables, rely on speciality movers. Bekins arranges to have even the largest and most delicate items to be disassembled, transported and assembled at your new residence for protection and transportation second to none.


Transit Protection

As the professional long distance movers Vancouver Island residents trust, we uphold a standard of excellence to ensure your items are handled with the utmost care at every step. During moves, though, incidents can happen that can lead to damage. That’s why we offer complete transit protection in two options: released value or replacement value protection. We’ll gladly walk you through these options so you understand how you can enjoy complete peace of mind for your move.
