Amerigo-Cardwell Moving joins Bekins Family

Jefferson City, Mo. |

With almost ten years experience in the moving industry, Amerigo-Cardwell Moving joins Bekins Van Lines as a prime interstate moving agent. 


 “Amerigo-Cardwell is a quality addition to the agency family,” said Dave Witzerman, Bekins Van Lines president. “We’re excited to expand the Bekins brand into central Missouri, and we look forward to a long relationship.”    


Changes and expansions aren’t new to Jim Pond, owner of Amerigo-Cardwell  Moving. Starting his professional career in office furniture retail, Pond decided to leave the industry and start his own moving company, Amerigo Moving, in 2004. Then in 2011, Pond purchased A #1 Cardwell Moving & Storage, a company that had been in business for more than 50 years. Pond merged the companies into one location in Jefferson City and renamed his business Amerigo-Cardwell Moving.


Since its opening in 2011, Amerigo-Cardwell has had great success providing high quality service to the surrounding Missouri area and its residents. The company even had the opportunity to move Missouri Governor Jay Nixon into his new home upon his election. Conquering interstate moves with the help of Bekins Van Lines is the next logical step for Pond’s moving company. By continuing to offer high quality service and excellent customer satisfaction, the Bekins name will flourish in central Missouri.
