Favored Movers of California’s Governor

Sacramento movers moving the Governor of California

We’ve seen – and moved – tens of thousands of homes over the years. But, when we received a moving inquiry from Governor Jerry Brown, our jaws hit the floor. Governor Movers? That was something new for us.

We quickly went to work assessing the Governor’s mansion and its contents. Our premium movers took ample time to meet with individuals as to understand what belongings were a potential concern. With this deeper understanding of objects, our moving experts began preparing them for removal with sufficient protective padding, moving blankets and other precautionary equipment.

It was a pleasure to hear that Governor Brown was thrilled with our expertise. Nothing had been damaged, and all contents were placed in their proper locations within his home. He was so delighted with our premium moving services that he hired us to coordinate two additional moves for the Governor’s mansion.

Is it your first time working with a moving company near Sacramento? You may not know where to start as you search for a top moving company you can actually trust with your cherished belongings. Cost is important but remember that it isn’t everything!

The best place to start when comparing movers in Sacramento is with online moving company reviews on Google and other review sites. To narrow down your options from there, make sure the company is licensed and insured for your protection then ask about the training and background check process for their movers. Are they full-time employees or temporary crews? Don’t be afraid to ask about the moving company’s track record, how many moves they perform each year, their claims rate, and their level of experience with moves like yours.
