The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requires all moving companies to use the Double Drive Time Law to protect consumers. Using Double Drive time provides visibility to the customer of the actual driving costs being paid and it compensates the moving company for their actual driving time to return to the origin (where the job started)

Using the Double Drive Time Law:

  • The customer is responsible for all drive time between the new and old house or office.
  • The moving company is responsible for the driving time between their warehouse and the origin location.
Dangerous or hazardous materials, stolen and illegal goods, perishable, environmentally harmful or explosive goods, any type of drugs, bio-hazardous items and poisons, weapons and firearms.
Yes, we absolutely can! We also offer video viewings, which are often times more effective than a traditional on-site estimate.

Packing

There is no single best box for moving. Different items require different types of moving boxes. To avoid damage during the move, you’ll want a combination of standard sized boxes:

  • Small box (1.5 ft3): best for heavy items such as books, canned goods, shoes, etc.

  • Medium box (3 ft3): best for items without a uniform shape such as lamps, lamp shades, or small kitchen appliances.

  • Large box (4.5 ft3) and extra-large box (6 ft3): best for light items like pillows and bedding.

  • Picture box: best for framed artwork, mirrors, and other thin items that are fragile and breakable.

  • Dish barrel and dish pack inserts: best for packing dishes and other fragile kitchen items.

  • Wardrobe box: best for clothes on hangers.

It depends of the size of your house/condo/apartment.

  • For 1-2 bedroom our customers usually need 7 large, 12 medium, 4 extra wide and 3 wardrobe boxes.

  • For 2-3 bedroom it is 10 large, 14 medium, 8 extra wide and 4 wardrobe boxes.

  • For 3-4 bedroom it is 15 large, 20 medium, 9 extra wide and 5 wardrobe boxes.

  • For large house it is 20 large, 24 medium, 11 extra wide and 6 wardrobe boxes.

  1. Decide what you will pack in the moving box. Packing similar items in each box will make labelling easier.

  2. Label each box on the top and sides, indicating what contents are in the box (e.g., utensils, books, or sheets).

  3. Label each box with what room it belongs in, so the movers know where to place it in your new home (e.g., if the box contains your sheets, mark it master bedroom). This will simplify the unpacking process since you won’t have to move items from one room to another after unloading.

  4. Number each box. Knowing how many boxes you’re moving in total will help ensure that nothing gets lost during the move.
