We do not offer intrastate moves unless in California.

Are you moving within the Los Angeles or Southern California area? Sterling Van Lines covers the Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties with local moving services.

What is a Local Move in LA?

Local moves are short distance moves in your “local” area that covers up to 90 miles in the state of California. These local moves are charged by the hour and include two or more men teams. Local moves are usually accomplished in the same day unless it is very large.

If a move in California requires more than 90 miles, it is considered a long distance move and is charged by the pound or the piece. The more pounds you have, the better your rate per pound is. Sterling Van Lines makes weekly trips to Northern California (Bay area), San Diego and the desert (Palm Springs and beyond). These moves usually require two to five days from pick-up to delivery.

Our minimum at 1,000 pounds is lower than anywhere else and that’s a good thing for you: it means savings! When it comes to minimal moves, we do it best. We have the experience and knowledge to ship items as part of a trip to Northern California, the Desert and San Diego areas on a weekly basis. For example, we can ship an item from the Bay area and deliver it to L.A. or San Diego.

Planning your local move

Call us at least a week before your move (800) 264-6313.

Full Service: We come in to pack and prepare your local move from start to finish so you don’t have to lift a finger. Dishes and all loose items are packed, protected and made ready. Bed and furniture are prepared and protected as well.

You Can Save Money: You can save money by preparing your move and packing loose items in boxes. Standard moving boxes are best because they are made with better cardboard. You can get them from a local truck rental service. If you organize and pack your move, then the movers only need to come in and load your boxes. This takes less time saving you on the cost of a local move.

We have helped thousands of families move their prized belongings.

Why Choose Sterling Van Lines?

Sterling Van Lines personnel are expert at local (short distance) moves in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties. We also specialize in small moves going intrastate (long distance moves inside of CA). So, if you need to move prized possessions or antiques or one and two rooms from San Diego to San Francisco, we can do that. We make weekly runs from Southern CA to Northern CA and out to the desert areas.

Our minimum is 1,000 pounds, which is far less than most other moving companies. However, Sterling does not deliver intrastate meaning locally within a state (other than California).

Intrastate refers to moves that begin and end in the same state. With a California license and a long-distance license (state to state), Sterling is your best choice to take care of your personal belongings no matter where you need to have them delivered in California or to another state. Our friendly and trained staff has been helping people like you for 30 years ensuring their items got to their destinations safely. We can do the same for you and your family.

At Sterling, we customize every delivery the way you need to get done. We will deliver your items anywhere in the U.S. because we go to places that other companies will not go to. We are usually the only source available to ship fragile items like a piano within California or another state. That makes us unique in what we do and what we offer to our customers. There is a personal touch with Sterling because we respect your items and understand their importance to you.

Sterling staff has been taking care of people’s belongings for 30 years and can be relied upon to ship them to the right destination in a safe and secure manner. We pack and ship items properly and safely. How? By getting all the details from you. We ask questions about whether there will be stairs at the shipping location? And if so, what kind of stairs? How wide? Can we fit the item through the door? We care about your fragile items and that it is delivered safely.
