Gerber Moving & Storage has handled local moves in Kansas City for more than 80 years. We handle out-of-state moves all the time, and we work with a network of affiliates all over the U.S. In fact, we can coordinate international moves, too.
Absolutely. We are very flexible. We’ll work out the arrangement that best suits your needs and budget. You can do all the packing, some of it, or let us do everything.
You may save some money by doing your own packing, please keep in mind that Gerber—like other reputable moving companies—does not accept liability if there is damage to items we did not pack. Be sure to discuss these conditions with your Gerber representative as you plan your move.
If you want to do some or all of the packing yourself, we can advise you on the type of boxes or cartons you’ll need. You can purchase new and used boxes from us, along with plain newsprint (so much cleaner than newspapers!), bubble wrap, tape, and other packing supplies. See Box Specifications
Lampshades—Pack them separately so they don’t crush each other. You may want to remove the harp, too.
Dishes—You might be surprised to learn than china plates should be packed on their edges, not stacked. The end result is a package that is three times stronger than if you stacked them! We often pack a short stack of plates, but then turn them on edge in a carton specially constructed for dishes.
Figurines—You’ll probably want to wrap them carefully in tissue and bubble wrap, then double-box them.
Computers—Pack the CPU (tower) separately from the monitor.
No problem! Our government-approved warehouse provides safe, clean, secure space to meet your short- and long-term needs. It is fully containerized, and climate-controlled space is available to store pianos. Many people find our storage facility a great option for temporary storage even when they are moving in town—for example, when their current house has sold, but construction on the new house isn’t complete. Storage also is a great option if you will be assigned overseas for an extended period of time and you are moving out of your current home. Read about our storage services…
We need to know the general size of your move (like how many rooms and how much “stuff” you plan to move), items that need special handling (such as pianos, spas, and safes), the To/From locations, packing requirements, timing considerations, and delivery requirements.
The more information you provide us, the more accurate our estimate for you.
