Check out the Your Estimate page (or Fill in the form at the right of this page) for a free quote on your move today.  

Need to store your belongings during or after your move? Our movers have connections that will help you find the right storage unit at the right price either locally or in your new home. Call us at 250-474-1117 to learn more about storing your items.  

If you’re moving out of Victoria and don’t want to drive one of your own vehicles, our movers can arrange to get your vehicle to your new location safe and sound. Our service is fully insured, and our commitment to making sure your valuables arrive in the condition they left applies to your car as well.

About Victoria, BC

Victoria is British Columbia’s beautiful capital city, located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Victoria has a population of 91 867, and the Greater Victoria area has a population of 397 237.

Victoria has a warm summer Mediterranean climate, enjoying fresh, dry summers, and cool winters with some precipitation and plenty of cloud cover. It’s not unusual for Victoria to experience long stretches of mild or warm weather, with average temperatures rarely moving above 30 °C and only occasionally falling below 0 °C.

What to do when you move to Victoria

Moving is an exciting adventure, and moving to Victoria offers plenty of adult-friendly and kid-friendly fun for new residents. Whether you’re the outdoor type, or you prefer to get your kicks where there’s free Wi-Fi, you won’t have a shortage of things to do, see, and enjoy.

Naturally, you’ll want to see the best of the best right out of the gate, so here are seven highly recommended activities for new residents.

Visit Inner Harbour

Inner Harbour offers endless activities and sights for individuals and families alike. You can enjoy the scenic waterfront, partake in the activities, and, of course, shop. It’s a hotspot for tourists, so going during the week will reduce any wait times you may experience. However, no matter what time of the year you go, you’ll have plenty of entertainment and cultural activities to soak up.

Go Whale Watching

There are plenty of whale watching tours in Victoria, BC, including B.C. Whale, Watching Tours, Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours, and SpringTide Whale Watching and Charters. You might even see an Orca up close! But even if you do not see the whales, these tours also take you to schools of dolphins and fish.

Visit One of the Many Gardens in the Area

British Columbia is home to some of the most breathtaking gardens and parks. Some of the best include Abkhazi Garden, where you will see majestic trees. There’s also Beacon Hill Park, which is just by the inner harbor and walking distance to downtown. Take the kids down to the Butterfly Gardens in Victoria to see a tropical jungle filled with ducks, flamingos, and butterflies.

Tour the Craigdarroch Castle Historic House Museum

Taking a tour of the Craigdarroch Castle Historic House Museum is the perfect weekend trip. Spend a day living as though you are part of Canadian royalty, and visit the Victorian Era in this breathtaking castle.

Take the Weekend and Enjoy Botanical Beach Provincial Park

On Juan de Fuca Trail in Port Renfrew, you can find the Botanical Beach, which is part of the Marine Trail. It’s known for the ambiance and life you experience in Victoria, and while it is a two-hour drive, it is something every Victoria resident must enjoy at least once in their lifetime.

Catch a Show

There are more than enough arts and cultural events to keep you up to date with the latest trends. However, if you want a good date night, catch a show at the Ballet Victoria Society or Belfry Theatre.

Tour Hatley Park National Historic Site

No one can say that he or she is a resident of Victoria without visiting the majestic, Royal Hatley Park National Historic Site. There are guided walking tours that you and the entire family can enjoy. Don’t wait to experience this breathtaking castle.

 

Community Engagement in Victoria

At Two Small Men, we’re deeply passionate about community engagement—the many positive impacts of community work can’t be overstated, and as a professional moving company, we have to add that community volunteering is a spectacular way to become familiar with your new community and start forming new friendships!

Victoria is a city with a strong sense of community, and you should check out the many volunteering opportunities that are shared on the Volunteer Victoria website, which states that “Community is only as strong as its volunteers” — a sentiment we strongly agree with!

Your move to Victoria is going to be an exciting new chapter in your story. When you’re ready, so is our Victoria team. Reach out to us by phone or by filling out our quick, free quote form above and let us help you prepare for moving day!

End-to-end services in Victoria

We understand if you only need movers to get you from Point A to Point B. But did you know that Two Small Men offers additional opt-in moving services that can help make your move even easier? Check out our Moving Services page and talk to your Move Coordinator to learn more about these services!  

 

Packing Supplies & Services 

We offer professional packing and unpacking services – you can book packing day in advance of your move, and a Two Small Men crew will come safely pack your belongings while you focus on other moving day prep. The tips and tricks our team has acquired after over 30 years of moving will ensure that your belongings are packed safely and snugly for same-condition arrival at your new home or office! 

 

Furniture Assembly & Disassembly  

Your first night in your new home shouldn’t be spent struggling to assemble furniture. Moving is exhausting, and you and your family deserve to sleep soundly in your own beds after what was likely an emotional day. Our crew can re-assemble most furniture on arrival at the new home so that all you have to do in the evening is relax and unwind! 

 

Storage Services 

Two Small Men is proud to partner with BigSteelBox to assist our customers with their storage needs. If you choose to move with a moving container, we can help with the loading and unloading process. 

BigSteelBoxes are shipping containers, so they are extremely secure. They’re wind, water, and rodent-proof and come equipped with a lockbox that protects your padlock from bolt cutters. 

BigSteelBox has locations across Canada, and they offer secure storage at their facilities. This is a very handy option because you’ll only have to load and unload your moving container once, even if you need storage in between your move! 

 

Junk Removal 

Let’s face it: one of the worst parts of moving is dealing with junk disposal afterward. You probably have a lot of move-related debris that needs to go such as packing paper or peanuts, Styrofoam, boxes, and more. Maybe you’ve decided it’s time for some new furniture and you’re just not sure how to get rid of that old chair that wouldn’t sell online. We can coordinate the junk removal for you, so after everything you do want is unloaded from our truck, let us load up what you don’t want and take it to the local junkyard for you.  

 

Item Donation 

Have stuff you want to get rid of that is gently used, but you haven’t been able to find the time or don’t have the space in your vehicle to get it to a local charity? There’s no reason to hold onto these items past moving day – we can coordinate the item donation for you and have partners in most cities who will happily accept donated goods.
