Long Distance

Is your long-distance move within California or approximately 400-600 miles from your pickup location(s)? If so, you can easily get your moving quote, and rest assure that we have the best prices of any high quality moving company in the Bay Area. Our process for moving long distances is modified to ensure safe arrival of your valuables. Road conditions, weather, and other factors can influence the move. That’s why you want professional movers, who have experience charting course through California highways and byways, to move you and your family safely. The best advice any professional mover could give you is to examine the license and insurance coverage of the company which you select. All licensed movers are required to give their customers a visual inspection of their belongings to estimate moving costs. Five Star Moving Companies is one of the most affordable moving companies, and we model ourselves on excellence. For details and questions, please give our friendly staff a call.

Double Driving Time

This simple explanation should allay your fear or concerns about Double Drive Time (DDT). DDT is actual simple and straight forward. Many customers who end up choosing the wrong moving company get bamboozled by tricky sales agents who fail to explain what DDT means. Here’s a simple explanation of DDT law: Per the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regulations on household goods relocation, all California moving companies must charge the customer double the time it takes to get from the origin to the destination. Specifically, the law states: - “the time used shall be the total of loading, unloading and double the driving time from point of origin to point of destination.” For example, if Bob’s move started at 9:00 a.m. in San Jose and ended at 12:00 p.m. in Fremont, and it took 15 minutes to drive from the origin to the destination, he will be charges for 3 hours and 15 minutes.

We were impressed from the first phone call. All the charges were explained from the beginning and nothing was hidden. The booking process was easy. The driver called 30 minutes prior to arriving. All our furniture was padded with blankets, surround wrap, and carefully loaded on the truck along with boxes and our patio furniture. We highly recommend Five Star Moving Companies to everyone, especially for large moves. Thank you, Mike, Dave, and Jay for a great move! Thank you Mikle, David and Jay!!!
