The Cartwright Story

In 1934, William and Jesse Cartwright, having survived the Great Depression, were looking for a way to support a large family that would also give them a means to a better life. Soon after, William (Bill) got a truck and  started advertising general hauling services, a venture that eventually migrated towards a specialization in household goods.  This gave rise to what would become Cartwright Van Lines, conveniently located in Kansas City, MO, right in the middle of America’s heartland.

The Cartwright Companies now comprises 14 different businesses and stands as the foundation for Cartwright International.
