Tay and Eric co-own Kirby’s Moving Company. We are named Kirby’s Moving Company in honor of our friend, Kirby Praseuth. We have been inspired by his legacy of focus, commitment and passion. Kirby had an adventurous spirit and infectious smile that we bring to work with us each day in his memory. Our mission is to take his entrepreneurial spirit and maintain a business that operates as he did: with commitment, honesty and a smile.
