An ‘entrepreneurial dream’: New moving company opens in Grand Island | Grand Island Local News
He recently stepped down from his full-time appearance at Amish Furniture, but remains a part-time employee.
“I’ve enjoyed growing my business over the last year and I’ve found a great crew with over 15 years of experience that brought the three of us together.”
He said Island Moving’s top priority is “customer service because I believe that is the foundation of any successful business”.
“I love meeting new people every day and offering the best service anyone can ask for at a reasonable price,” said Kersch.
He said he has had a lot of positive feedback from his customers.
“I enjoy doing an efficient and pleasant job for the customer that gave me the opportunity to move him,” said Kersch. “I really believe that it is by the grace of God to be where I am today and I am very grateful for that.”
Kersch, who now lives in St. Libory, was born in Hastings and lived on Grand Island for three years before his family moved out of the ward. In 2007 he returned to Grand Island. As a young man he gained his first experience with moving things – not with furniture or household goods – but with pigs.
“That taught me a good work ethic,” he said.
