Mikus Transport focuses on Customer Service and Stress Free transport. Dont take time off from Work or School, we can work with your schedule.
Mikus Transport is a family based business located in Nanaimo, BC. Our business model is that we give the customer the option of not having to take a day off work while waiting for their product to be delivered. We achieve this by delivering on evenings and weekends. Mikus Transport was officially started back in 2017. We started with local deliveries all over Vancouver Island. These deliveries came from local business and also big retailers in the area; and they still do today! We also began exploring the opportunity of doing small local moves, for our customers. We quite enjoy doing these still, for the simple reason of helping our customers with a big step in their life. Mikus Transport started out with just a cube truck and a small van. The fleet has grown to, 4 large commercial vans, 1 small cargo car, 2 large 1 ton cube trucks and a 4 ton cube truck with a power lift gate. These vehicles’ listed were brought on to meet all of our customers’ needs and also to help lower costs to our customers. As of 2018, Mikus Transport has currently been working with a few of the very world-renowned courier companies. So far this has helped us expand our service area to the Gulf Islands, and almost every part of Vancouver Island and we couldn’t be more thankful. Mikus Transport has grown so much over the last year, and we would like to thank our customers. Without you, we couldn’t have made it this far. We have big plans for the upcoming year, and we can't wait.
Growing up in a split family there were always excuses on why I couldn’t do things. I learned very quickly that what money there was, was for the roof over our heads. There were times I would be left alone to cook my own creations while my mom had to be elsewhere. As this carried on, I still watched our friends join teams, showed off their new Puma Cleats or the new baseball glove they could afford. Groups like Scouting or Cadets became the only groups I could afford to attend for which I will be forever grateful. It was a different time back then but the root of the problem is still here today and magnified. What a single parent could afford; it now takes two. Sometimes that isn’t even enough. Many parents work throughout the day so they can be home with their kids after school. In some duel income households one member of the family may still have to limit their family time to cover financial obligations. Many single parents don’t even have that luxury. When a large ticket purchase is made regardless if it was by need or want there is always more to it than the sticker price. Taxes. Delivery. A personal activity may need to be re-evaluated. Lost wages, having to be home to receive it. Taking a day off for family events or school closures adds to this financial struggle but is necessary. Taking a day off to await a delivery is further financial strain and even time or activity decisions have to be made. At Mikus Transport we understand this. - We do this so you don’t have to take a day off work, miss that school event or soccer game. - We do this so you don’t have to swap shifts. - We do this so households will not be pushed into a situation that requires pulling a child out of a youth activity/group. This is why we developed a business model so our customers have options that include not having to take a day off work and wait for that delivery. We deliver evenings and weekends at a fair rate so you can reduce your household expenses and enjoy the family time that you deserve.
Mission: Give our customers a stress free and problem free delivery, all with a smile on our face.
FYI for those that travel between Nanaimo and Victoria,

A few days ago we had the pleasure of helping the
Tumaini Fund Canada with picking up and delivering a full pallet of excess cloth from Victoria.
This cloth would have ended up being #disposed of, but because of this lovely Charity, it will now be used for making new clothing for kids going to #school and #church Tanzania! Thank you for letting us #help you, in our own little way! 😁
