John at Thrifty Moving was terrific to setup our move. The crew, Cliff and Oscar, arrived right on time and it was amazing watching them do the incredible job they did. Our furniture was BIG and HEAVY and the destination was up three flights of stairs. Their strength, skill and stamina should be an example to all of us about how training, smarts and being fit you have to be to do this incredibly difficult job.
They wrapped everything with moving blankets and binding plastic to keep it safe and performed above and beyond when getting the gigantic couch into our tight apartment door. No complaints what so ever.

Reducing Moving Cost
We offer complete packing services but doing your own packing will significantly reduce the cost of your move. It is commonly believed that large items such as sofas and refrigerators contribute most to the cost of a move. However it's the smaller items in a household that can take more time. You can reduce your cost by moving small items such as pictures, lamps and plants. Value is important especially in our current economy and having a efficient crew and the proper equipment can certainly be a time and money saver. Our crews are trained in professional packing, moving and storage techniques saving you time and money.
We are committed to your satisfaction.

How To Choose A Moving Company
Important Questions To Ask When Moving
How do I locate a local quality moving company?
A good place to start is by checking reviews with a reputable review site like Yelp that don't allow fake reviews and also get recommendations from friends and family. A quality moving company will have a solid reputation in the local community in addition check how long a mover has been in business.
How soon before moving should I call A moving company?
The more notice the better so you can secure your dates and allow to get written estimates. Ideally 4 to 6 weeks is best however shorter notice moves can always be accommodated.
Is the moving company I'm contacting licensed and insured?
Using a unlicensed and uninsured mover can not only cost you thousands extra it can also be unsafe. In California it's actually illegal to operate a moving company without a DOCA license. One of the first things you should do when moving is check and make sure the moving company you are choosing is licensed and insured. You can check licensing and insurance with the Department Of Consumer Affairs HERE . Thrifty Moving is fully licensed and insured and have been for 40 years!
Rogue And Unlicensed Movers
The Lowest Hourly Price Isn't Necessarily The Lowest Cost Move
Always ask the important questions when comparing Moving Company rates like are you licensed and insured? (You would be surprised how many are not and it's illegal and dangerous! Don't let them in your home!).
In addition to your hourly rates are there any fees? (Many movers love these hidden fees, like 18% fuel charges, 10% workman comp fees, 3% credit card fees, 5% PUC fee by the time they're done the rate is 36% higher than you expect).
Do you charge for tape? ( Some movers charge $10 a roll to use dozens of rolls of tape unnecessarily on the furniture pads or re-taping your boxes costing hundreds of dollars).
When does your time start? ( Many Walnut Creek moving companies charge an additional half hour or more to get to your home and that is money lost on wasted crew time not moving your furniture).
You will NEVER find any of these hidden cost at Thrifty Moving!
