I would recommend Yolo Transfer to anyone looking for a quality mover and/or events partner. My clients use Yolo Transfer for... storage and shipping needs to and from event locations. Not only are they always on-time and reliable, they handle all items with care and go above and beyond in the organization of all items we store and ship through them. Marrissa and Josh have been in the business a long time and are the dynamic duo behind this business and they make sure we get everything we need prior to an event, including coordinating all event details and pricing. Additionally, all of their staff are lovely to work with and are always very professional. We look forward to continuing to work with Yolo Transfer and highly recommend to anyone in need of moving and storage services.read more

Yolo Transfer did a great job on all aspects of my move. I had a recommendation from a friend of a friend, so I called and Maria... and Travis were very responsive on giving me a quote and making arrangements. On moving day, Tommy, Romance and Gilbert were excellent. They were very careful with all the furniture and boxes, and made sure everything was placed in just the right spot in my new place. They were very friendly. And I paid less than my last move. I strongly recommend calling Yolo Transfer.read more
This is a family run business. The team was FABULOUS, FRIENDLY, and always willing to help!!!! We had 22 years worth of... accumulated "life" that they packed and moved for us in two days. They also came back and picked up the boxes and wrapping paper. The experience was better than we expected. In reviewing with other movers, the VALUE was better then their competitors. They were also very honest as we came UNDER BUDGET for the move, which was a great surprise.read more

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Moving Company?
Moving companies have diverse pricing structures that can vary depending on many different factors. Scheduling an in-home or virtual quote is often the most reliable way to get an accurate quote from your mover. Based on our research, a Sacramento local move ranges from $495 to $4,305, depending on the size of your home, the distance you’re moving, and the amount of items that need to be moved.
At Yolo, we guarantee transparent and accurate pricing with no hidden fees. To avoid inaccurate quotes, we offer both in-home and virtual survey options. These surveys enable our team to accurately assess your belongings and understand the specific requirements of your move more accurately. Request your free quote today.
Do Moving Companies Provide a Comprehensive Quote Detailing All Costs and Services?
Yes, moving companies generally provide free quotes detailing their costs and services. However, it’s important to check for fees and additional charges that may be hidden within your costs. If a moving company doesn’t offer free quotes, that is a clear indication that the moving company is unreliable and untrustworthy. Get at least three different quotes from moving companies before you settle on just one company.
At Yolo, our comprehensive quotes ensure you have all the information you’ll need to choose the right mover. Our quoting services detail all costs and services involved in your move, ensuring there are no hidden fees or costs.
Do Moving Companies Offer Both Local and Long-Distance Moving?
Most full-service moving companies provide local and long-distance moving services. However, it’s important that you verify this with the company first, as some companies only travel up to a certain distance. It’s also crucial to check for a valid state and USDOT license. A USDOT license ensures the company follows state, federal, and industry regulations.
At Yolo, our team is experienced in handling local and long-distance moves. As an interstate agent of Bekins Van Lines, you can count on us to provide exceptional services and expertise during your long-distance move. With our commitment to excellence, you can trust us to handle every aspect of your move with the utmost care. Our license numbers are:
Bekins USDOT #2256609
California IM#256 (State License)
Do Moving Companies Provide Packing Materials and Services For You?
Packing services are almost always an add-on option to your move. Although they are an additional cost, packing services can save you valuable time and energy during your move. It’s important to note that not all moving companies offer packing services, so be sure to check beforehand. Packing prices can vary depending on the value, quantity, and size of your belongings. To avoid any surprises, we strongly advise getting a quote in advance.
As a full-service moving company, Yolo offers you comprehensive packing and unpacking services and quality packing materials. Our packing team will arrive at your home a few days before your move to start packing your items. Our packing services are tailored to align with the unique requirements of your move, giving you a personal moving experience. To learn more, check out our Packing Services Page.
Are They Licensed and Insured? What is Their USDOT Number and State License Number
In California, moving companies are required to obtain a state license for local moves and a USDOT license for long-distance moves. A United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) license allows moving companies to operate and provide transportation services across state lines.
These regulations ensure the safety of both the clients and their belongings, as well as maintain industry standards and protect customers’ rights. Confirm their USDOT license using the Federal Mover’s Database Lookup, and look for their state license as well.
Yolo is fully licensed and insured. We operate under USDOT license number 2256609 as a member of Bekins Van Lines. Our California state license is IM256, and our MC license number is 770031. Yolo also maintains general liability and workers’ comp insurance to protect everyone.
Are the Movers Trained and Experienced?
It’s a common practice for moving companies to hire seasonal movers during peak seasons. However, it’s vital to only prioritize moving companies with a dedicated, trained, and experienced crew. Avoid companies that have a history of relying on temporary movers, as they may lack experience in handling your belongings. Learn more on our About Us page.
Unlike other moving companies, Yolo truly cares for the people we work with. Our moving team comprises highly-trained, experienced professionals committed to delivering a first-rate moving experience. Our team is also completely background-checked, ensuring the utmost security and trustworthiness throughout the moving process.
What is the Reputation of the Moving Company? What Do Their Reviews Look Like?
Choosing a reputable and well-established moving company ensures you a smooth and reliable moving experience. To ensure that you choose a high-quality moving company, take the time to read reviews from previous customers. Focus on recent reviews as they are more likely to reflect the current state of the company’s services and team. It’s also important to only look for moving companies with positive reviews. Positive reviews that highlight professionalism, reliability, and customer satisfaction are great signs in a moving company.

What is the Moving Company's Policy on Items Damaged or Lost During the Move?
Federal regulations require all moving companies to offer basic liability coverage at no additional charge. This type of coverage provides 60 cents per pound per item of coverage. This valuation, however, only satisfies some customers, which is why most moving companies also offer full value protection at an additional cost. Full value protection is often used when moving fragile items as it ensures that the moving company will either repair the item, replace it, or refund you the fair market value for any items lost or damaged during the move.
We offer both limited and full-value protection options. This allows you the flexibility to choose how you want to be covered in the unlikely event of damaged or lost items.
