What are people saying

It was like watching a five-star movie! We eventually decided to dress and join the small group on the street, and were there when the lights went back on. I would never have believed we could stay awake that long. We can't imagine how much work and effort, organization and co-operation went into this project. It seemed seamless to us. It was rewarding for us to see the loaded vessel sail into the daylight; an experience we never forget.

To the Nickel Bros. crew - thank you all so much. I can’t even express how impressed I am by your skills and commitment. And grateful for supporting this effort.

~ From Mark Blatter, BC

On behalf of Catalyst Paper I would like to express our sincere appreciation of Nickel Bros contribution to the Project. The professional approach toward the conduct of the work from a safety and technical perspective was the principal factor in the very successful completion of the heavy lift portions of the project.

We very much appreciate the flexibility Nickel Bros demonstrated throughout the work and the willingness of all of your people to make practical thoughtful input into the development of the handling concepts. Your contributions reduced the cost and simplified the installation of the spool, turbine and generator.

We look forward to working with your Company on future projects.

I want to take a moment to let you know what your donation has made possible. Last September you made a contribution at OPAL's Gala Fundraiser. On that evening, we set a goal to raise $60,000 during the paddle raise to cover costs for moving and renovating this house on 44 Mountain View. 

You helped us pay for the renovation, and today the house sold to its new owner - a single mother, who has lived on Orcas most of her life. She joins nine other homeowners who have been able to purchase a moved and renovated house through OPAL since 2011. All of these wonderful older houses were saved from the landfill, and will continue to provide island families with a home they can afford for generations to come.

We decided to replace the failing rock and mortar foundation in our home, originally built 1910. We attempted to call and interview several other contractors and house lifters, only to be ignored or talked-down to. After meeting Nick Carpenter from Nickel Bros we felt comfortable proceeding with this huge and scary project.

Nick Carpenter, and Foreman Adam Greve were very helpful with information to assist in house preparation and our scheduling needs. When the time for lifting arrived on a snowy December day, their crew was there with happy faces and took care of businesses in a professional, efficient manner. We cannot say enough about how much we appreciated the Nickel Bros crew!

We will always be thankful for working with Nickel Bros on this job. We highly recommend this company.

We are still very excited about the house move project and once the dust settles on this one, we are already looking at and discussing option for our next house move project. Pass on my regard to the Vancouver Island crew, they are extremely professional very talented and efficient. So far it has been a very positive experience.

~ From Daniel J Hanaway, Comox, BC

I do want to extend my huge thanks to the current owners for giving us the extra time to get the house. I hope they can know how perfect it is for us-- and how excited we are to get it. I am happy that they can have that gorgeous setting to build their own dream home while we get this one from them to make our dreams come true-- 2 dreams for one!

~ From Ruth
