About Us

Driven by a relentless pursuit of quality, Mother Lode Van & Storage strives to provide an exceptional customer experience. Our local, family-owned business proudly serves the moving and logistics needs of individuals, businesses, and government agencies in the Greater Sacramento area and beyond.


Mother Lode Van & Storage History

The history of Mother Lode Van & Storage is rooted in Northern California’s Gold Country, also known as Mother Lode Country. Our company was founded in 1956 in Placerville, CA with one truck and a desire to serve the community’s moving needs. Today, we operate out of a 50,000-square-foot full-service logistics facility in Rancho Cordova, strategically located to serve all of Northern and Central California with complete storage, packing, distribution, and relocation services.

When Ron and Barbara Larson bought the company in 1989, they didn’t know they would grow into the mover of choice for the Governor of California! Also, in 1989, we became an agent for North American® Van Lines, one of the country’s largest and most respected van lines.

Their sons, Mark and Brian, took over the company in 2010 and continued staking new claims in the moving industry, growing the business into a leader in office and industrial moving throughout the region.

Today, the company is owned by husband and wife Louis and Erin Lane, who embrace the legacy of Mother Lode Van & Storage while seeking to innovate and enhance the time-tested processes that have led to the company’s success. We enjoy a hard-earned reputation for excellence, with 25% of our business coming from repeat customers!
