Our History

Simcoe Moving & Storage is very proud of our rich and lengthy heritage in the moving industry

Our roots in the industry were deeply planted in 1943 by a gentleman by the name of Norman Ware. Norman was the first of four generations to be involved with this company, originally named Federal Moving & Storage. In 1972, after 30 years of business Norman stepped aside making room for the 2nd generation of “Moving Men” to take over as his son Douglas Ware became president of Federal Moving & Storage.

Over the next 30 plus years Douglas managed a great amount of change within his own company. It had grown from a one truck business with only 1500 sq. ft. of storage space, to over fifteen trucks and 20,000 sq. ft.

In 1989, Douglas and his wife Jo-Ann (who by this time had been in the business for over ten years herself) decided to sell the business and move to the more peaceful surroundings of Simcoe County. A new company was formed and now operates as Simcoe Moving & Storage a member and shareholder of United Van Lines. Recently a 2nd company was formed and reviving the original family business name now operates as Federal Moving & Storage, a proud member of the Mayflower group of affiliated companies

In time both these companies will be passed down to yet two more generations of “Moving Men”. Robert Ware, Douglas’ son is now an integral part of the company with over 20 years of being very involved with the day-to-day operations of the company.

You can rest assured that when you choose Simcoe Moving and Storage Inc., you are getting over 100 years of combined experience.
