McDermott Moving Company has been a family owned and operated business for over 50 years. We are proud to provide you with the best quality residential and commercial moving services in the entire metropolitan area. As a locally owned company and member of the community, unlike a franchise or large chain, we are operated by managers who have the experience and responsibility to move your home or office while providing a highly trained staff.

Founded in 1968 and currently owned and managed by Tom McDermott, we offer hands on moving experience ranging from large estate homes, small retirement apartments, large commercial moves such as the Independence School District offices, fragile and heirloom internal moves and museum display set-ups for the Truman Presidential Library, to your small one person office.

When you contact us you will be able speak directly with someone who actually knows and can answer your questions about moving. Not just book your move. We can help you decide what best fits your needs and budget.
