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.
