Who we Are
Safe, Careful, Structural Moves Since 1956
Henry Nickel arrived in BC as an employee of a Manitoba-based house moving firm that wanted to expand into Western Canada. Henry and his brother Richard eventually bought the British Columbia operation in 1956 and called it Nickel Bros House Moving Ltd. Hard work, honesty, and a keen understanding of what a customer needs when moving a house quickly made it a success.
Today, during the course of any given month, the range of structures which are transported and relocated by Nickel Bros could be as diverse as an 8,000 sq. ft. historic home being moved around the corner to a 200 ton pressure vessel being transported from Zhongshan, China to Grande Prairie, Canada.
As the 3rd generation of Nickel family movers step into leadership roles within the group of companies, their objective is to develop more efficient ways of transporting over dimensional Residential and Industrial loads throughout North America. This objective is supported by our industry leading Health & Safety Program and Environmental Initiatives that will make structural moving sustainable and affordable for many years to come.
