When moving to California from Brooklyn…

There are several things you need to be aware of. This is not a local relocation. Quite the contrary, this falls under the long-distance relocation category. Fortunately, our long-distance movers are more than well equipped to take care of all your needs. Still, you first need to make a decision – will you do it all on your own or will you consult professional assistance. Doing everything on your own could be somewhat problematic since there will be so many things you need to worry about. First off, depending on how many things you need to move – you might have to consider renting several trucks. Doing this alone is a lot of work since you need people to drive those trucks. Also, this is not a cheap thing to do.

Secondly, you need to worry about packing everything and taking it down to the trucks. Additionally, once you reach your final destination in Cali you will need to unload everything and bring it to your new home. Do you have the proper tools for this job? More importantly, do you have any experience doing all of this? Getting a moving truck Brooklyn is no easy feature. There are steps you need to take, and licenses you need to own. This alone provides plenty of obstacles.

What does moving to California from Brooklyn include?

The first thing you need to do is set up a timeline. This means that you should know when the move should begin, and more importantly when the move should be completed. With this timeline, we can create action steps for ourselves as well as for you. Following this, you are entering a packing phase, with which we can help or you can do it on your own. We do offer full-service packing, but packing is a task we always recommend that you do on your own.

The next step is the organization of moving truck(s), depending on how many items you are relocating. Our moving experts would then handle all of your belongings, packing it into the trucks and going through all the checklists. The checklists will be there to run some sort of an inventory so that we are certain that everything is accounted for. This is for your safety as well as it is for ours.

Lastly, we would engage in transportation. You can travel with your belongings, or you could simply meet us at the final destination if you wish to drive yourself. We leave this at your discretion.

Finally, both our experts as well as you will reach the final destination in Cali. Our agents would then unload the trucks and bring everything into your new home.

This is what we do for you, while you just organize your time and belongings. All in all, something that would end up being very exhausting and stressful will become something that you didn’t even feel happen. This is why we are here. We hope you choose us!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.

It's a good idea to book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move. If you're moving during the holidays or in the summer, it's best to schedule it 12 weeks ahead.

Do you provide packing supplies?

Yes, we do. Along with the necessary boxes and packing materials for your move, we offer various 'Saver' packages tailored to the size of your home. If you don't use all the boxes you purchased, you can return them to our team after the move, and we'll refund the unused portion.
