About Us

We are On the move

In 2006 Matt and Sheila Mansell established Finish Line Transport Limited. They began with long haul transportation services from Vancouver Island to the Western US and local hauling of construction waste for disposal and delivery of aggregate products. In recent years opportunities arose through a network of South Island businesses to expand into excavation, demolition, underground utilities, road building work and more; work that the Mansell's had previously performed as owners of Mansell Excavating.

After almost 2 decades of experience, the civil side of the business was incorporated as Finish Line Earth Works Ltd. on October 11, 2022. Forming a partnership with Finish Line Transport, the two companies will offer complete site preparation services! Matt and his team will continue to move the company forward, confident in their expertise and knowledge to execute with quality, safety, and professionalism.
