Welcome To PortageCartage.ca, Premium Movers in Winnipeg
Portage Cartage & Storage is a moving company Winnipeg really trusts.
A little history on the company takes us back to the time when French voyageurs had to carry their canoes on their heads as they cut through land between the many waterways they came across as they explored Canada.
Canadians had a term for that: “portage” which meant “to carry.”
The original owner Herb Netwig saw that word fitting as a name for a Winnipeg-area moving company. “Cartage,” the other part of the name, means “transporting using a cart” which was also befitting. Since customers also had a need for us to hold their belongings for short periods of time, we added “Storage” to our name – and that was the birth of Portage Cartage & Storage.
Now that we are a Winnipeg moving company, we have grown from our very first warehouse in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, to a mover that serves the whole of North America thanks to the incredible service we offer through Mayflower Van Lines. Yet we retain at our core our small-town roots of being movers in Winnipeg and the surrounding communities (Portage la Prairie included!).
