How We Started

In 1991, Murray Wilson, a second-generation house mover established C&T Structural
Movers after branching out from the family business to focus on more specialized work
for Provincial and Federal Government, Historical Society’s, and Conservation Authority’s.
Murray had worked alongside his father which was serving in the house moving industry
since 1957. Over the last three decades Murray’s son Curtis Wilson has worked
alongside him as a father and son team.

specialized type of business, and most contractors are generally in contact with us. Due
to this, roughly 70% of our work is for or through the contractors themselves. This way it
