We Will Also Help You Pack Your Entire Home Inventory

We also gladly help our customers pack up their belongings. Let us know that you are interested in obtaining a packing service, and leave the rest to us.

Our Movers in Santa Barbara Provide Packing Services – Decide Which One Works Best For Your Move

We always want to provide our customers with different options when it comes to their move – and that goes for packaging as well. To be able to plan your move and budget accordingly, you’ll first need to know what type of packaging options are available. So, here is what we can supply you with:

  • Partial packing service – Partial packaging works best for those living alone, or not packing many things. If you believe your inventory can fit in fifteen boxes, or want us to handle only a specific portion of items, this is the one that will work best. It is cheaper than the second option, and a great way to delegate a portion of your struggles if you are relocating on a budget.
  • Full packing service – If you require us to pack all of your things, that too can be arranged – even if you are bringing everything you own. Our full service will work perfectly, and we’ll quickly deal with all the items you own. All you have to do is contact us, and we’ll figure everything else out for you – even the materials needed for the job.

Our Long Distance Moving Company Provides Top-Notch Auto Shipping Services

We can help you ship your vehicle with our auto transport services. Depending on how much money you wish to allocate for this service, you’ll be able to choose from one of two excellent carrier options:

  • Open carriers are one of our most popular services due to their affordable nature. As the name suggests, the vehicles are not entirely covered during transport, so they might get some dust or even rain on them, depending on the weather conditions that are at play. However, they are more than secure, so don’t worry about your car falling off the carrier or getting damaged. If any serious problems arise, know that shipping a car with us will insure the vehicle for any external damage for up to $100,000.
  • An enclosed trailer is another carrier you can use to transport your vehicle from one place to another. While this option might be somewhat more expensive than the last one, it’s undoubtedly a better choice overall. After all, you will sleep soundly at night knowing that there is no way anything could go wrong. That’s why we always recommend this option to any car lovers out there who’ve invested a fair chunk of their savings in obtaining new, vintage, rare, and luxurious cars. Because we know that such carriers always hold special vehicles, we keep them covered for any external damage of up to $500,000.

If you have any further questions and doubts regarding our car shipping services or the liability policy, we urge you to contact us and find out more about having your car insured and transported.

Tailor the Pickup and Delivery Location to Your Own Requirements and Budget

The shipment of your vehicle isn’t complete until you pick up your car. But how does this work, and where can you get your car delivered to? Well, it depends on what suits you and your budget best. We have two delivery options available – door-to-door pickup and terminal-to-terminal pickup.

When you are relocating, and don’t want to stress or spend too much time figuring out your car shipping options, door-to-door transport is a perfect choice. You can expect our cross country movers to arrive at your address at a convenient time, and pick up your car. Next thing you know, you’ll be standing at the doors of your new home, having your vehicle delivered to you the same way we picked it up.

If you need to save some cash on car transport, terminal-to-terminal delivery and pickup might be exactly what you were looking for. Basically, as a company, we have multiple pickup and delivery venues across the country to which we ship our cars. While terminal-to-terminal auto transport might sound complex, it’s actually pretty simple. Once you leave the vehicle at one of our venues near your old place, we will pick it up and deliver it to a facility closer to your new address. Simply leave the car with our representatives, and we’ll take care of everything else.

Our professional and friendly customer support team will gladly assist you in any other way they can. This includes explaining the difference between the carriers, helping you make a decision that would suit you, as well as informing you of any rules and regulations that may be of importance for you.

Hire Our Santa Barbara Moving Company and Use Our Storage Free of Charge for a Whole Month

A move is a grand process, with a lot of troubles and tribulations. Some of them are easily surpassed, though, if you have an additional space to leave your things in until you figure out how to organize your new space. That’s why it may be of great help to know that you can rent a storage unit with us, where you’ll be able to leave your things free of charge for up to a month! Our units are monitored 24/7 and climate-controlled, so you won’t have to worry about your stuff – they’ll be safe with us.

We Make Sure Each Move Is Covered With Insurance, so Our Customers Don’t Have to Worry

One of the main reasons we are such a loved cross country moving company is that we always put our customers first. And that is mirrored in our mandatory moving insurance policy you can obtain free of charge with our relocation assistance. Even on the off chance that anything was to happen to your inventory (which it won’t), getting our liability policy ensures you can get reimbursed for the damage.

All Of Your Things Will Be Insured With Our Long Distance Moving Company’s Mandatory Insurance Packet

Our mandatory insurance provides a coverage of 60 cents per pound of damaged or misplaced inventory. This means that if, for example, a 300lbs couch gets scratched in transportation, you’ll get about $180 of compensation. Of course, a premium full-value replacement insurance policy is also available. To get more information on the costs of it, just pick up the phone and let our friendly professionals guide you through the process.

Santa Barbara Is One of the Most Magical Parts of California

It’s no wonder that the Californian city is often called “the Queen of Missions“, for its unparalleled beauty and grace that can’t be found anywhere else. The nickname also bears its legacy from the iconic landmark known as Mission Santa Barbara – a place you’ll surely have to visit as soon as you relocate. But before you do, there are some even more important details to gather before you hop on the plane.

Before You Decide on the Neighborhood of Your Dreams, Check Out the Living and Housing Costs First

The American Riviera is one of the wealthier areas in the county, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, the mix of sun-kissed beaches, upscale restaurants, and boutiques can’t be found just anywhere in the world, so it’s no wonder you have to pay a pretty penny to experience them on a daily basis.

That’s why you shouldn’t really expect to find a home below the price of $1,400,000, or rent a place for a price lower than $1,900. To be able to afford these prices you would need to have a median monthly salary of at least $106,000, which is no small feat. If your finances check out, take some time to learn more about the following neighborhoods:

  • Mission Canyon – If you’re looking for the suburban life of your dreams – look no further. Located between the city and the Santa Ynez Mountains, you’ll have nothing but beautiful views wherever you turn your head. Although you’ll probably have to drive to the Downtown for many amenities and entertainment options – including shopping and restaurants, we are sure you won’t find a better suburb anywhere on the coast.
  • The Riviera – This neighborhood is the perfect example of why SB is also known as the American Riviera. It has wonderful white homes with red rooftops, trees, and a breathtaking view over the ocean. However, if you are relocating with a family, bear in mind that there are no schools here, so you might find it difficult to live in the area with children. Other than that, the space is practically perfect, and you won’t have a complaint in sight.
  • The Mesa – Translated from Spanish, the name means “flat-topped hill with steep sides”. So, if you are a hiker, you will adore this hilly land right on the coast sprinkled with parks, beaches, and walking trails. The neighborhood may be filled with many young people, but it is also one of the historical areas in the county, in which we are sure anyone can find peace.

Ai H. Goleta, CA

Just recently, I bought a used car in San Diego despite living in LA and needed a way for my car to be transported to me. Thankfully, my friend referred me to this place that was also in San Diego. Transporting a car could very expensive, but it was more affordable than I thought! so I scheduled everything accordingly and had them deliver my car to me. It was definitely worth it since my car was fairly cheap and my dad knew how he was gonna fix it so everything was worth it. They got my car to me and had no problem picking up as scheduled with the seller and no damage or hiccups during the transport! Very satisfied with the service and would definitely recommend them to my friends or anyone!

Anna L. Los Angeles, CA

My sister in Portland was relocating to another country and she needed to get rid of a lot of her furniture and even some appliances and she decided to let me inherit them. She used Long Distance Movers in Portland and they effectively communicated with me when they would schedule to come deliver her stuff to my place I’m SF. Apparently she told me if I wanted to keep all her things to at least pay for their service in which I did. Good thing we coordinated because I just moved in to my new place and needed all the furnishings. I met the minimum for their service and they provided a reasonable contract and in turn everything turned out great! She even told how they carefully wrapped and packed up everything as well. Definitely a great service to use!

Brianna S. Huntington Beach, CA

I was helping my friend move back down to California from Seattle. There’s a lot of moving companies but I went with this one because of their quote per item and distance moved was something she can afford. Then we set a schedule for moving and they came prepared with their trucks and Mark was their lead guy and helped us out with everything. He coordinated the whole move gracefully with no damage and even covered her things to protect, a nice touch.

Especially with moving large appliances, I was appreciative to receive help moving all of the heavier objects we had.

The movers delivered all of the belongings safely to the new house and were again, super punctual with their delivery.

Celina C. Richmond, Canada

My car is a really old Volvo and since it is now considered a vintage/retro automobile, I was extremely weary about having it transported to my area. Honestly, I don’t know much at all about these services, but I was really worried about moving companies in general, especially because of the risks involved, including damages that may happen during handling while being transported.

During my last move, I used a different moving service and it was a nightmare. I paid a lot and had a vintage, German-made GRAND piano get scratched and no one took responsibility. It was a huge disappointment but this time, I decided to look elsewhere and took a chance with Long Distance Moving and Auto transport, and they really delivered.

Everything came perfect and the price was less than $800 for the whole service… comparing it to my previous service, I’m shocked to say the least. The price is great, and for someone who was worrying like me, they had a policy where they would cover any damages (if they should incur) during the move/transportation and it put me to ease. I can’t say enough good things.

Gabby O. Los Angeles, CA

I bought a car in Tarant County Texas since the sales tax is non existent and my dad suggested getting a car from his friend’s used dealership. My dad offered to get me the car, but I would have to only pay the shipping. Long distance movers had auto shipping and it was a good price to get my car transported from there to the bay. It was really affordable for me and when I got my car, it was still perfect in the condition in which we bought it for. They were very professional through whole process and informative. Definitely a 5 star rating for the service and professionalism!

Kaitlyn V. Fountain Valley, CA

I got a car while I was visiting my family in the Bay. So I needed it to be brought down to SoCal, because I wasn’t finished with my vacation yet and went by plane. After searching for moving companies, I found one in San Fransisco.

Long distance movers offered me a good rate per mile compared to other companies. The workers reassured me on the condition of my new car when it would arrive safely in SoCal. They said they would insure the car from any damages, and there’s no need to worry.

I’m glad I found this company because they made me feel like I was in good hands, and they definitely proved it to me. If you need a moving company, be sure to check this one out because they made my life a lot easier!

Kirsten Rose K. Pinole, CA

I was in NY over the summer and when it was over I moved back home. During that timw I also needed to store things and then have it shipped to me back home later. Thankfully I was able to do that with Long Distance Movers! They were able to store my stuff until I was home to be shipped back to me. The space in NY apartments are very scarce and sk this is the way I had to keep my things instead of asking my friends there to do so. My experience was a pleasant and stress-less one and I have zero complaints with their service! A huge recommend!!

Matthew A. San Diego, CA

My uncle is no longer driving his car and wanted to ship me his car to keep and make room in his garage so he can store his other belongings so a family friend can move and do some care taking.

I did some hunting and came across Houston Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport as well as some others. They were one of the first one who got back to me with quote that was more than reasonable for cost per mile in an open trailer. My uncle was more than happy to hear that I took care everything for him and they were really courteous and helpful when they came and picked up his car.

A week later the car was transported and delivered with care. Contract all signed and done. Now I gotta new used car just like that! I highly recommend this team should you need some good pricing and service!

Michael D. Redmond, WA

This was my first time using a moving and transportation service. I had a very good experience with Manhattan Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport. I was attending college around the area in New York and once I graduated, I had so much stuff that I wanted to take back home with me in Washington. This would be shipping across the country so I know that I needed a long distance service.

I checked out the website and filled in my information to get a quote. I was surprised by how affordable the price was, considering I am moving all my stuff across the country. It made it easy for college students to be able to use the service. Anyways, I called them and had an excellent customer experience. The representative was friendly and attentive to my needs. They did not try to up-sell me anything and was very fair in the pricing and guidelines of what to expect next. They described the entire process to me and I felt very confident and at ease in continuing with the process.

The movers came over to my apartment and moved everything into a truck very fast and safely. These are real professionals who want to make your move as smooth as possible. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with this company and after moving back home, everything came in about 2 weeks to my home address. Nothing was missing or damaged. I would recommend this service to anyone in the New York/Manhattan area who want to move long-distance while maintaining affordable prices.

Norma C. Los Angeles, CA

So my boyfriend is actually the person that found Long Distance Movers and I swear it saved me time and money! My initial plan was to have my family help us make the long drive from Seattle to Los Angeles and just penny pinch that way.. but nope! My boyfriend came thru and he said that he was told that LDM was professional and are very competitive in pricing so why not?! He said that he booked them and just let him do the rest (typical alpha male stuff I guess)..

I was a little hesitant at first but 2 people showed up on time! And also were very well prepared, it’s like they knew how to tackle on each project I was throwing at them and on top of that with a smile! They wrapped/boxed everything so quickly I was so impressed! I would definitely refer them to my friends and family in the area, I can’t stop saying this enough but they were polite, proficient, quick and also not too expensive.

Moving is such a headache and stressful but I swear I wasn’t this time! Thank you LDM and to my bf for finding them!!

Roger M. Pasadena, CA

My sis graduated from Reed College earlier this year so i flew over to Portland to help her move back home. She had a lot of stuff she decided to keep last minute, more than we anticipated to ship back ourselves. We aren’t super familiar with moving services in the area but decided to go with Long Distance Movers since they responded with a quote the quickest and offered to have everything packed and loaded before we had to catch our flight in a couple days.

My sis and I are pretty weak so they were a really big help especially with packaging her desk and other big items. There were 2 movers and they packaged and cleared out everything quickly. Honestly, I don’t know how we were planning to move all her things ourselves. Us two wouldn’t have made it past the apartment stairs so we definitely needed Long Distance Movers.

Yaning W. University, Riverside, CA

Moving away from home for the first time can be a pretty daunting task. Luckily, Long Distance Movers had my back. I recently moved down from Sacramento to SoCal for university and needed a way to move a lot of my belongings down with me. I was originally recommended by a friend who had used their services before. All it took was a quick message through Yelp and they replied quickly with an estimate and more questions about my inquiry.

On the day of the actual move, they were punctual and loaded my stuff in what seemed like no time. Once I came down, everything had been delivered safely and was in great condition. My housemate who received my stuff said they unpacked my stuff neatly and without much obstruction at all! Communicating with them was seamless and super straightforward, and kudos to the driver as well! Overall, I’d say my experience was great and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the Sacramento area who wants to move something and are afraid of their items being damaged.
