About Us

  Founded in 1881, E.E. Ward Moving & Storage is the oldest African-American owned business in the United States. What started as a stop on the Underground Railroad has flourished into one of the most respected and trusted moving companies in the country. We are a self-actualized team that honors our distinguished legacy by embodying service with dignity and strong moral character. Starting with just two horses and a wagon, the company has grown over the last 137 years into a thriving multi-million-dollar award-winning moving corporation. Throughout the evolution of E.E. Ward, we have never lost sight of the principles of excellent service and giving back to the community on which it was originally founded. We pride ourselves on our excellent service, and we have the credentials to back it up for when you’re doing a “moving companies near me” search. E.E.
