We do not offer intrastate moves unless in California.

While we specialize in small moves, we at Sterling can help you with medium to larger moves within California as well. 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.

Where we Service

We at Sterling Van Lines realized years ago the major need for Intra California moves.

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.

We service all areas of central California. We do lots of moves to and from Santa Barbara, Montecito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Rosa, Sacramento, Nipomo points north of Redding, beyond Healdsburg, to and from the San Diego area, and more.


What we Move

We have an extensive range of experience, from moving pianos and antiques from Southern California to the Bay Area; apartment-sized moves from Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, etc., to Southern California; to larger-scale or full home moves between Southern and Northern California.

Our minimum is 400 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.
