Such hard workers, showing up on time totally ready to work hard and do it right. We had them pack, store and deliver. We would certainly use them again and recommend them to make your move complete and at a reasonable price.

My husband and I were looking for a local mover in Santa Cruz/Monetrey area to move furniture from our recently deceased Dad's home in Saratoga. The family agreed we would donate all the furniture and other items to the Pajaro flood situation. We... contacted Sister Rosa Delores Rodruguez's (founder and manager) knowing - "Casa de la Cultura Center" is a major resource center for Pajaroans. With excitement for the furniture for the people and a dedicated warehouse to place the items, all we needed was a mover. My husband randomly picked Central Coast Movers to get bid for moving costs as this was going to be part of the families donation. The day of moving, Martin Lopez (owner) and his 3 assistants and 2 moving trucks started moving early morning and completed moving everything out of a 2500 sq ft house in 2.5 hours. (this ialso ncluded outside furniture and garage items and 25 boxes of dishes etc already packed ). Delivered and loved into the Pajaro warehouse.They were meticulous while moving in the house and careful not to damage the inside of the house or the items. The offered help when we needed and asked about items before moving. We could not have found a better or more conscientious moving company. We have had expereicne with many and they had "issues". We holdheartedly recommend these movers.. reliable, meticulous, courteous and efficient. Now you ask ..pricing? The owner knowing this was a donation move, offered to NOT charge us for the moving fee. He is not a major corporation but self owner with his own challenges these days but magnanimous to donate his service for the good of the Pajaroans devastated by the flood. Rare individual and company ... highest praises for Central Coast Movers!!read more

These guys made my move so much easier. After a change of plans just before my move, I had two days to hire movers—for New Years Day! These guys were professional and fast, and packed my stuff safely and securely in the moving truck. I would... definitely hire them again or recommend them to more

Monterey Long-Distance Movers

Moving for the First Time?

After you’ve submitted your long-distance moving estimate, you will be paired with a specialized relocation specialist who will guide you through every step of your move. After your move is scheduled, you will receive an Order of Service document detailing all of the services provided during your move, along with their respective fees. On the day of your move, your moving team will securely load your pre-packaged items onto our truck. As your items are loaded onto the moving truck, the moving crew will write down each item on the Bill of Lading. Once we arrive at your new location, your moving crew will offload and set up your belongings based on your preferences. During unloading, each item will be checked off the Bill of Lading as it is placed into your new home or office. Before concluding with your team leader, you can review your items to ensure they’ve been safely transferred to your new residence. Then, you will sign off on the Bill of Lading with your team leader, and your move will be complete.

What Services Do Long-Distance Moving Companies Offer?

Full-service long-distance moving companies offer services beyond transportation, loading, and unloading your items. These services include packing and unpacking, storage solutions, furniture disassembly and reassembly, and sometimes specialty moving for unique or valuable items.

As a full-service moving company, Central Coast Movers stands out with its plethora of offerings. We cover local, long-distance, and in-state moves and provide packing services, office and commercial relocations, warehouse storage, and specialty moves.

In addition, we offer gun-safe moves, senior moves, warehousing and distribution, last-minute moves, apartment moves, and decluttering services.

How do the Movers Ensure That My Belongings Will Be Transported Safely?

Keeping your items safe is the backbone of any successful moving company. Most reputable companies train their staff extensively in safely handling and transporting items. If you purchase packing services, they will use proper equipment, packing materials, and techniques to ensure that belongings arrive in the same condition they were packed.

Moving companies commonly disassemble furniture for safe transport and wrap any furniture and larger items in moving blankets to protect them from damage. They should also reassemble the furniture after it has been unloaded. Moving companies also use dollies and straps to best protect your items during loading and unloading.

At Central Coast Movers, safety isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a commitment. Besides adhering to all the safety procedures above, our staff consists of professionally trained moving experts. From free furniture disassembly and reassembly to our award-winning service standards, our A+ BBB rating speaks to our dedication to ensuring your belongings’ safety.

How Long Does a Long Distance Move Typically Take from Monterey to My New Destination?

The duration of a long-distance move is influenced by several variables, including the distance, route conditions, the size of your home or office, the number and weight of items that need to be moved, and any unforeseen circumstances. Typically, longer distances necessitate more travel time, planning, and logistics. On average, long-distance moves can take anywhere from three or four days to two or three weeks. A good rule of thumb to follow on long-distance moves is to allow one day for loading, another day for unloading, and one day for every 500 miles traveled.

When moving with Central Coast Movers, we prioritize efficiency without compromising safety. As an interstate agent of Bekin’s Van Lines, we have the backing of an extensive network of over 400 interstate agents nationwide.

How Long Has the Moving Company Been in Business, and What is Their Reputation in the Monterey Area?

The longevity and reputation of a moving company often indicate its reliability, credibility, and quality of service. Companies with years of experience typically have encountered many moving scenarios and can handle challenges seamlessly. Moving companies that have been moving in Monterey for decades also know the ins and outs and nuances of the area, since they have completed so many moves in Monterey.

Since 2001, Central Coast Movers has been the go-to choice for customers in Monterey. Trusted for over two decades, our family-owned and operated business was honored as the 2022 Spire Quality Award Winner by Bekins Van Lines. Our unwavering commitment to excellence has solidified our reputation in the community.

Do They Have Any Customer Reviews or Testimonials Available?

In today’s digital age, reviews have become essential in guiding consumers’ decisions. It’s important to seek reviews from third-party platforms such as Google Customer Reviews or Yelp. This way, you will know that customer feedback is genuine and unfiltered rather than potentially edited or curated by the company on its website. Though many companies showcase reviews on their sites, you should take them with a grain of salt unless they are directly sourced from credible platforms like Google or Yelp. Reliable moving companies should consistently maintain an overall score of 4/5 stars or higher. In addition, moving companies should ideally have recent reviews indicating active and consistent service. The larger the number of reviews a company has, the more accurate the rating is, providing a more holistic view of its performance.

Our 4.2/5 star rating on Google Customer Reviews shows Central Coast Movers’ dedication to quality service is evident. This dedication to customer service is further highlighted by our A+ BBB rating and prestigious honors, such as the 2022 Spire Quality Award from Bekins Van Lines and membership in the Preferred Movers Network. For ease of access, our website directly links to our Google Customer Reviews, ensuring transparency and convenience for our customers. If you have not explored our reviews, we encourage you to check out what our customers say on Google Customer Reviews.

Are They Members of Any National or Regional Moving Associations?

Membership in moving associations indicates that a company adheres to established industry standards and practices. It’s an assurance of quality and professionalism. When looking for a long-distance moving company, it is especially important to look out for moving companies partnered with a van line, such as Bekins Van Lines. Bekins Van Lines has over 400 interstate agents nationwide who will work together to make your move seamless. When you choose a moving company affiliated with a van line, you can rest assured that they can move you anywhere nationwide.

As an interstate agent of Bekins Van Lines, Central Coast Movers can move you across state lines or the country. Unlike other moving companies, when you partner with Central Coast, you do not have to worry about whether we can move you to your destination. As long as it is in the United States, we can move you anywhere with our partnership with Bekins. In addition, Central Coast Movers isn’t just a member of any association; we’re a part of the Preferred Movers Network. Our affiliation underscores our commitment to industry-leading standards and service quality.

Is the Moving Company Licensed and Regulated for Long Distance Moves?

Licensing and regulation are crucial for any moving company. It ensures that the company operates within the bounds of the law and meets specific industry standards. Federal and state laws require moving companies to have a United States Department of Transportation license to complete long-distance moves. However, if the moving company is paired with a van line, they can operate under their van line’s USDOT.

Central Coast Movers is fully licensed and insured. We operate under Bekins USDOT number (2256609), our Motor Carrier license (MC 770031), and California state license (MTR 0191083). In addition, we carry worker’s comp and general liability insurance policies to protect everyone. When you choose Central Coast Movers, you’re choosing legitimacy, safety, and peace of mind.

What Kind of Insurance or Guarantees Are Provided in Case of Damage or Loss?

Navigating the insurance nuances in the moving industry is important for your financial protection. Often termed ‘moving valuation,’ federal guidelines mandate that every moving company offer Limited Liability Protection at no additional charge for each move. This basic level of coverage provides compensation at a set rate of 60 cents per pound. This means that if you have an item weighing 10 pounds that gets damaged, the reimbursement would be $6 under this plan, no matter the item’s market value.

Many moving companies, including Central Coast Movers, introduce additional valuation options for an added fee to better accommodate the diverse value of customers’ possessions. One of the most common options is the Full Value Protection, which requires the moving company to repair, replace, or offer the fair market value of any item damaged or missing during the move.

Another protective measure is the Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration, which caters specifically to items you’ve identified as having a value exceeding $100 per pound. When encountering issues post-move, it’s extremely important to report them immediately. Most moving companies have a digital form you can fill out to make a claim on their website.

Central Coast Movers offers all of the valuation plans above, so you can choose the coverage that works best for you. But if something goes awry, our appeal is direct: contact your moving specialist or our dedicated hotline at (831) 235-6046. Bekins Van Lines handles all of our valuation claims for long-distance moves, but we are happy to connect you to one of their valuation specialists to come to a solution swiftly. To learn more about moving valuation, check out Bekins Van Line’s page on Protection and Valuation.

What Do I Need to Prepare or Do in Advance of the Moving Day?

Preparation is the key to a smooth move. Typically, this involves decluttering, packing items safely, labeling boxes, and coordinating logistics with the moving company. In addition, we recommend having all of your boxes and items that you can lift stacked toward the front of your home or office to speed up the moving process.

With Central Coast Movers, preparation becomes a collaborative effort. We offer virtual quotes, helping you plan and budget. Our services encompass everything from packing to specialty moves, like decluttering and last-minute relocations. Plus, our 8,000-square-foot, pest-controlled, climate-controlled warehouse with 24/7 surveillance is available for short-term and long-term storage, ensuring everything is ready for the big day.
