We do not offer intrastate moves unless in California.

Moving cross country is never easy. There are a lot of complications involved with a change of address. Sterling Van Lines has been one of the Nation's leading pioneer for 30 years in the moving industry and specializes in small moves.

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 states.

We can help you and your family for a great price because our minimum load is 400 pounds, far less than our competitors. They 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.

Our Cross Country Moving Services

When you need to move small loads, here is what you should expect:

There should be no surprises and you should pay only for what you are shipping. We charge based on your specific needs.

We are experts at one and two-room moves, single pieces, antiques, moving pianos, motorcycles, packing, crating and custom moves. Our team custom-tailors all of our cross country moving services according to your desires.

We have our own trucks and trained movers, who know how to use moving blanket wrapping and padding to protect your valuables. At Sterling, we provide the best movers and vehicles to get the job done.

We provide a two-man inside pick-up and delivery to any destination in the 48 continental states. As a cross country moving company for small moves, we have been doing it for 30 years.

We meet all the requirements, including proper licensing from the Department of Transportation.

We offer the special insurance requirements for cross country moving.

Above all, a cross country moving company should have experience, the necessary skills to move a fragile piece like a piano up flights of stairs and not damage your piano or your property. We can move bigger items such as a refrigerator through a smaller doorway without causing any damage to the fridge or the doorway. Our personnel have years of practice in all kinds of different situations. There are always obstacles that moving companies will run into but Sterling Van Lines has the experience and skill to make sure your move is smooth and worry-free.

Why Choose Sterling Van Lines?

We specialize in small moves within 90 miles in the Los Angeles area or the 48 continental states. For example, we can ship a piano from San Francisco to St. Louis or New York. Our team can pick up one or several items from any state and deliver it to another state. Our 400 pound minimum is substantially less than other moving companies. However, Sterling does not deliver intrastate, locally within a state (except in California). Intrastate refers to moves that begin and end in the same state.

We customize your shipment for safe delivery in places that other companies will not go to. We are often the only option for shipping fragile items anywhere in the U.S. We’re unique that way so we understand how important your items are to you and your family.

We have California and long-distance (state to state) licenses that allows us to take care of your personal and precious items anywhere in California and throughout the U.S. We have been providing cross country moves for 30 years. Our trained staff ensures your items are properly packed no matter where they are being shipped from.

We’ve been helping people make special shipments for 30 years. We know what it takes to get it to your destination in a safe and secure manner. We pack it properly and ship it safely. We do that by getting all the details right. For example, we ask questions about whether there will be stairs at the shipping location? If so, how wide is it? Will it fit through the door? We go the extra mile to take care of you and your precious cargo.
