My move

From my initial contact to the actual move, the process was seamless and easy. I researched a few companies before settling with Rockburne Brothers. The reviews were accurate. I would definitely use them again and recommend them. The movers arrived ahead of schedule and were professional. There was no hitch with my move. Their price was very reasonable and I found their storage facility cheaper than other places. I have one final move and will be using them again. Thank you Rockburne Brothers.

Moving

Rockbrune Brothers is a well established moving company in the Oshawa and Ajax areas. They were a pleasure to deal with from questions in the beginning and booking a date right through to the actual move date. The 3 guys were very friendly and helpful and moved everything in record time but were also very careful. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your move. You will not regret it.

Great Customer Service

We moved from Durham Region to Simcoe County with two weeks between closings so we also used their storage services. The guys were on time for both the load and unload and were all very friendly. The move went well, no damage to our furniture.

Tricia and Jolene were also great to communicate with.

Crew arrived on time, was friendly, professional and attentive to all our needs and requests. They worked quickly, but took all necessary precautions to ensure our furniture was protected. Price quoted was competitive with no surprises. Would highly recommend Rockbrune to friends and family.

Moving furniture from ajax Ontario to Newfoundland.

Didn't like that they emailed me 3 days before picking up my furniture and said I had to pay a extra $524.00 because they had to pay overtime for picking up the furniture on Saturday. They knew that the pickup was on Saturday when I booked it.

Good morning Nathan,

We're sorry that the overtime charges weren't on your estimate from the beginning as they should've been. However, we had intentions of picking it up and it ended up being someone from UVL so once we knew that it was no longer us and that charge had to be added onto your bill we made sure to let you know. We do apologize for not notifying you any sooner.

We hope that everything went well with the move of your household goods.
May you enjoy your retirement in your hometown once you get there.

Have a great day

Our History:
As well known movers today, the story of the Rockbrune Brothers began in the 1920’s.Farming was a tough way to make a living. This
way of life was even more difficult for a young man with dreams of someday getting off the farm. Robert Rockbrune was a restless
teenager working on his families land just outside Perth, Ontario. One day he packed up what little belongings he had and headed to a
job in Oshawa, a city that was booming in the automotive industry. As the 20’s came to a close, Robert met Robina, who soon became his
wife. In the years ahead, he and Robina started a family, eventually having seven children, two daughters and five sons - “Mom and Dad
were pretty resourceful”, he says. “You had to be back then. It was not a time to live, it was a time to survive.” They hauled hay for
farmers, goods from the CP railway and whatever else they could. As word spread about City Cartage, the company grew. Towards the end
of the 40’s and into the 50’s the post war boom saw a huge growth in business so, they added more trucks. They also received
permission from the government for moving goods outside of the Oshawa area. They charged $2.00 an hour, which was enough to pay the
bills and their staff.
As the sons grew older, they joined the family business. Today three of them, Robert, William, and Joseph, still run the company.
Six of Robert and Robina’s grandchildren also help lead Rockbrune Bros. Movers and their offices in Oshawa, Ajax, Newmarket, and
Barrie into the next generation.
