This includes the receiving of your product, whether it is from the US or international. Let’s Get Moving operates out of a large warehouse located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, with thousands of square feet of space and easy docks for loading and unloading your product into our warehouse.
Once the inventory has been received, we then track and store all of your products for simplified and efficient fulfillment.
