The companies facebook page states Rocky Mountain House, but Ehret states that they provide services up and down the QE2, from Calgary to Edmonton. They even make the occasional run to BC and would be willing to consider pretty much anywhere.
“I don’t really have any fixed location that I need to be based out of.”
But there is something special about this particular company.
Ehret describes his business as “a moving company that specializes in the relocation of families who have been subjected to domestic violence.”
The idea came to Ehret during a chance encounter with a stranger. He met a police officer at a gas station and they two struck up a conversation. This conversation was the inspiration for Moving Forward To New Beginnings.
When asked WHY he does what he does, Ehret responded, “I spent a long time working in the oil field. It wasn’t a right fit for me. I wanted to do something to give back.”
MFTNB is able to provide services to those in need based on the profits from paying customers. However, business has been slow lately and Ehret is worried they may not be able to continue for much longer, posting this status on the companies FB page.
Just a few hours later, Ehret posted this emotional plea for support.
“I know you’ll be happy with us if you decide to hire us.”
