We move the BEST…Shouldn’t We Be Moving YOU?

Senior Situation:

We will be moving soon and we need help packing everything from china to fine art. Choosing a mover is overwhelming and we need someone who really cares. Where do we start?


Senior Solution from Karl Anderson:

First, always use a licensed moving company. Verify that the company’s license is in good standing (not revoked) with the California Public Utilities Commission. Check online at, under Transportation. If you use an illegal mover and your household goods are transported over public roads, you will have no recourse if something goes wrong.


Second, get a written estimate. It is very important to receive a full written estimate showing everything that is being moved and an explanation of how to compare estimates. This will protect you against unexpected charges.


Third, use a company with employees and not day laborers. Do the employees wear uniforms? Have they been with the company for many years? When your mover employs full-time, long-term workers, you have a much better chance of getting people in your home who are careful, ethical, skilled, and trustworthy.


Fourth, choose a local mover who has a physical presence in your area. Avoid internet movers without a local address. If there is a problem after the move, being able to discuss your concern in person if necessary is important if something goes wrong.

ABOUT KARL ANDERSON: In 1976 Anderson brothers John and Karl founded Anderson Bros. Movers as a San Francisco-based moving company. Karl continues to own and operate Anderson Bros. Movers with his family. His wife Patti, serves as President, daughter Pamela is Legal Counsel, and daughter Stephanie handles Marketing and Business Development. The office manager, Leigh, has been with the company for 26 years.


Karl Anderson was born into an entrepreneurial family, and grew up in Woodside and San Francisco. Karl met Patti in 1968 when he was 15 and she was a 14 year-old eighth grader. They have been married since 1974, and now have two daughters and three grandchildren.


Karl studied at the University of San Francisco, graduating in 1973. Although his degree is in Marketing, when the opportunity arose in 1976 for his family to purchase a San Francisco building with a 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse, Karl, along with his brother John, opened Anderson Bros. Movers, an antique, used furniture, and moving business. Karl was just 24 years old. In 1990, John took over the antique and used furniture business and Karl retained the moving company. In 2000 the company relocated across the Bay to Martinez, still serving all of California but specializing in local moving and storage.


Although Karl works six days a week, he stays involved with family and friends, is a member of the Concord Bocce Ball Federation, and is also active in numerous community groups. These include The California Moving & Storage Association (past President and current Director, Northern Region), Contra Costa Realtors In Motion, Contra Costa Association of Realtors, Women’s Council of Realtors, Senior Solutions Network, National Federation of Independent Businesses and Chambers of Commerce (Concord, Hispanic, Lafayette, Martinez, Moraga, Orinda and Pleasant Hill). The company also donates moving materials to Home Aide Essentials and is an Affiliate for Move For Hunger, in partnership with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. A devout Catholic, and active member of St. Perpetua Church, Karl is also an active member of St. Monica’s Men’s Club in Moraga and is past Grand Knight of The Knights of Columbus, Council #7683 in Lafayette. For over 20 years, Karl has organized and overseen the Knight’s Annual Crab Feed benefiting numerous Bay Area charities.
