We do not offer intrastate moves unless in California.

Moving is never easy. Not to mention the complications involved with a change of address. Sterling Van Lines has been the leading pioneer for 30 years in the moving industry and specializes in small moves.


We move many antiques for a variety of customers, including for eBay. There’s a reason for that: Sterling personnel are experts at moving antiques. Sterling personnel have the experience in dealing and moving antique items.

We know that antiques must be handled with skilled and special care. Your antique is padded with paper, wrapped in blankets and shrink-wrapped for protection before being placed in our moving van where each item is strapped and protected to ensure they arrive just like we found them. Some pieces may also require crating or packaging, which we can also offer.

Antique Moving

Antiques can be very fragile objects that demands to be packaged a certain way using the most durable packing products:

Depending on the item, foam wrap can keep glass and wood articles safe

Bubble wrap and moving blankets are also a great choice to provide extra security

A wooden crate can function as a protective shell

Once the antiques are securely packed and protected, it is time to move them onto the truck. The most important part is to ensure that your precious antique is properly arranged in the truck. The antiques will often be added last after all other boxes and items have been placed in the truck. They are less likely to hit other items. They will also be the first objects to be taken out of the truck.

At Sterling Van Lines, we’ll make sure your item is settled in as safely as possible. Once we arrive at your new location, we do a thorough inventory and ensure everything is intact and in the same condition. We put care into properly packing your items. We know how much it means to you.

Our staff has been taking care of people’s belongings for 30 years and knows what it takes to get it to your destination in a safe and secure manner. We take care to pack it properly and ship it safely by getting all the details. For example, will there be stairs at the location? What kind of stairs? How wide? Can it fit through the door? If it’s an item like a sofa, what kind, how big and how wide? We care to take care of you and your precious cargo. We take care of the things that are important to our customers.
