Vancouver Island born and bred, we’re a fourth-generation family business. Everything we do is shaped by our history and experience, and we’re proud to serve the needs of industry professionals and homeowners alike.
Our story began with Michell Farm, established in the 1800s on the Saanich Peninsula. From this family of farmers came Willard Michell, who began specializing in custom tractor work with his son, Maurice. This father and son duo used their equipment and experience to serve those in their community: farmers, homeowners, and business people. Before long, they had earned a reputation for producing quality work and forging relationships built on integrity and trust.
Today, Michell Excavating continues to live up to that reputation. The company consists of Willard’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as a team of dedicated employees, many of whom have been with Michell Excavating for decades. We have experience you can rely upon, a passion for creating exceptional products, and a mission to contribute to our community.
Moving the Earth for You
We do excavation for commercial, civil, and residential projects. No job is too big or too small, as our range of equipment lets us do it all: from performing bulk excavations to squeezing into the tightest spaces. Our excavation services include bulk excavations, road prep, residential landscaping, house excavations, subdivisions, civil pipework, site servicing, and backfilling. If you need material delivered or hauled away, we’re ready with our trucking and hauling services.
No matter the project’s size or scope, we guarantee a comprehensive estimate, experienced operators, and a commitment to helping you get the job done right and on time.
We have $5 million in liability insurance, WCB coverage and can supply bonding for jobs when required.
Trucking & Hauling
When ordering any of our soils or aggregates, you can pick up the product from our yard or opt for delivery. Delivery prices are determined by the time it takes to deliver your product and the size of truck required to get it there.
Want to dispose of concrete, or compost? You can either bring it in yourself, or we can take it away for you. Dump charges are based on the amount of material you have.
