Moving Steps

Step by Step Moving Guide

Local Movers

We are a leading Moving Company in San Jose, San Francisco and the greater Bay Area

Bay Area Moving Steps

A local move in California is a move that takes place within a 100-mile radius and stays within the state of origin. Many factors determine the cost of a local move. Luckily, many of those factors are within your control. For example, how ready are you when the movers arrive? Are all your belongings packed in boxes? Can the truck park close to your home? Any hard to move items? How much packing, unpacking and furniture placement would you like the movers to do for you? More...

Long Distance Move from and To the Bay Area

Long Distance Moving To and From the Bay Area

A long distance move is a move that is greater than 100-miles from the origin and/or the move crosses a state line. Two factors determine the major portion of the cost of your move. They are the distance you are moving and the weight of your shipment.

Partner Van Lines is able to provide competitive cheap moving rates because we do something called consolidated shipping. Instead of sending a moving van across the country with only your shipment on board, we consolidate your shipment with other customers' shipments. This method of shipping allows you to receive a greatly reduced rate on long distance move or International moving services in the bay area. More...

Your First Moving Step - Get a Free Moving Estimate

An accurate moving estimate is the key to budgeting for your move. If you are getting multiple estimates, you should make sure that you compare them on an "apples to apples" basis not just the bottom line. Partner consultants will always provide you with a detailed estimate indicating the cost for all of the services requested including third party arrangements, storage or increased liability coverage. Here are a few other points to remember:

Bay Area Moving Estimate
  • The cost of your long distance move is dependent on the weight of your shipment and the distance from origin to destination. The moving consultant uses a published rate schedule as the basis for calculating the cost of your move
  • The cost for local moves (under 100 miles) is generally calculated on an hourly rate (including travel time)
  • Be sure to show the moving consultant every room and storage area so they can accurately determine the weight or CF of your shipment. If it is not possible for them to physically see items stored at another location, be sure to provide a detailed inventory of these additional goods
  • The best way to reduce your moving costs is to discard items you no longer need.
