We do not offer intrastate moves unless in California.

We know that moving across the country or even the next state over can be challenging. Planning, packing, loading, and unloading are all tedious and complicated. Plus, if the move is due to a new job position or school, it can be even more stressful. That’s where we can help. Sterling Van Lines is one of the nation's leading pioneers in small moves. We do cross-country moves from Los Angeles to anywhere in the 48 contiguous United States. Sterling Van Lines has the experience you need to ensure that your valuable and irreplaceable items make it to their destination in the same condition they left in and on schedule.

Let us help you make your next move as smooth and simple as possible.

Cross Country Moves For Less

Sterling Van Lines has earned a reputation as America’s best small moves specialist for cross-country moves. We offer full-service cross-country moving with a two-man inside pickup and delivery to any destination in the 48 continental U.S. states.

We can help you and your family for a great price because our minimum load is 400 pounds, far less than our competitors. Other companies often require a minimum of 2,000 pounds and will charge you for it whether you use it or not. For small loads, you’ll get all the benefits of a large load. And we do not charge extra for blankets or padding.

What is a small move?

When some people think about moving cross country, they think along the lines of truckloads full of belongings and vehicles weighing thousands of pounds. Most moving companies think the same way, limiting long-distance moves to a minimum of 1,000 pounds or more.

But often, cross country moves can be on a much smaller scale. A single apartment move, a student moving items to or from college, an elderly relative moving in with a family member, or perhaps one to two rooms worth of a home being moved to furnish a vacation property are all examples of smaller kinds of moves.

No matter the reason for a small, cross country move, Sterling Van Lines is the leader in Los Angeles. With only a 400-pound weight minimum, we can make your small move happen.

Areas We Serve

Sterling Van Lines is proudly based in the Los Angeles area. Our main focus and specialty is small moves from L.A. to other parts of Southern California and beyond.

We are fully equipped for moves within any part of California to any other part of California as well as from California to any other state within the contiguous 48. We can also accommodate moves that originate outside of California from one state to another.

What We Move

Sterling Van Lines has extensive experience moving art, antiques, pianos, and other irreplaceable and delicate items. We will also pack, crate, and unpack household items as part of our full-service moving option.

This versatility means that we can manage everything from the most fragile pieces in the kitchen to the biggest blankets on your bed and anything in between. With a minimum weight limit of 400 pounds, you can ensure that your delicate items get to their destination safely without spending extra money buying weight you don’t need.

We’ve been helping people make important shipments for 30 years by packing properly and shipping safely. We do that by getting all the details right.

We go the extra mile to take care of you and your precious cargo.

Our trained staff ensures your items are properly packed no matter where they are being shipped from and then unpacked with the utmost care at their destination. We understand how important your items are to you and your family.
