Michell Excavating Crew 2011

We are part of the pioneer family on the Saanich Peninsula. Our Michell family (pronounced Mitchell) started in farming, dairy, hay, and grain production, and evolved in the early 1950’s to custom tractor work. The company is third generation family owned and operated.

Today we offer a wide range of excavating and trucking services, including residential and commercial services. Our old farming ways have led us to become one of  Victoria’s top producers of  topsoil and landscape products.

Many of our employees are family; and we value all of our employees as such. We all enjoy working together and are committed to offering  high quality products and services to our customers.

Committed to the community and the environment

Our new Western Star trucks are fitted with:

  • Auto engine shut offs which shut down the vehicle after 10 min of idling to minimize exhaust
  • Regenerating systems to reduce emissions

We also exclusively run a Bio-Diesel Mix for all our diesel fueled equipment

We are always working to efficiently organize deliveries to reduce our carbon footprint by hauling loaded both ways and minimizing driving empty whenever possible.

Supporting the community

Michell Excavating is a community member and a proud supporter of many local charities, including our own slowpitch team.
