  Disappointed!! This review is solely for the estimate process...because I haven't gotten much further than that. I called in early July to get an estimate for our upcoming August move. Someone answered the phone and made a phone appointment with me for the next day at 12pm. He also said he was driving but that I should follow up with a text with my name and number, which I did. 12pm the next call. Waited 30 minutes before trying to call them, no answer. Sent a text stating I was expecting their call and would be waiting. Someone texted saying they would "check on it". Finally someone called about an hour and a half late. I did the virtual estimate which involved a FaceTime of walking through my house and listing items to be moved, took about 25 minutes. I gave my email address and was told to expect the estimate by that night or the next day. Waited two days...nothing. Texted them to confirm my email address once again, was told "I'll work on it tonight". That was on July 19th and I have gotten 0 correspondence since then. No estimate was ever sent. After reading great reviews and was even referred by a friend, I'm super disappointed and feel it was a waste of my time. I understand COVID has complicated things and they are busy, but this is just extremely unprofessional.

  Rolando came over to give me an estimate . I had asked for a quote for packing and moving . His quote was on par with the other quotes i received . He said he would send a team over to pack the contents over 2 days and load one of the trucks the previous day . The team packed everything very well . One truck full of boxes were packed the previous day .
The next day, they arrived at the time they had promised to and loaded and moved everything. 3 trucks full . I had heavy dressers, elliptical, massage chair etc. Also needed to drop off an exercise bike to a friend's house in the same neighborhood and they did that at no extra charge.
They assembled all the furniture. Made sure that my bed and the massage chair was working .
I had a different wire for the dryer and had to get a new one. They returned the next day to repair one small damage to the bedroom wall and to connect the dryer. Impeccable repair. Doesn't even look like there was a damage .
Sacramento was the lead man for the moving and I have to say he was extremely helpful and was accommodating of all requests to move things around .
The entire team was cheerful , wore masks the entire time and not one complaint or grumpy face/ attitude.
Highly recommend this company. At every step in the process, Rolando was available to answer any questions and coordinate the move.  
There were more than 100 medium and small boxes and about 20+ wardrobe boxes .  Impressive that not a single thing has been damaged .

  Rolando, Sacramento, Nancy and the rest of the crew were a delight to work with. On time every time. Made sure I was happy with a walkthrough, delivered my belongings and helped set up bed frame, etc.  I was also able to keep my 75 moving boxes for over a month because of COVID. Speaking of, they were SAFE and wore a mask and wiped down everything. I hate moving, but i would use them again!

  Moving is arguably one of the more stressful life-events. Working a professional firm like Celis significantly lowered our stress level. It was a somewhat complicated move between three places. From the time they quoted the work until the last box crate was unpacked the team was efficient, professional and very nice! I would recommend Celis without hesitation. And a sincere thank you to the entire team!

  Celis movers did a great job for us with our move.  They showed up in the one hour window that they said they would.  They were friendly, skilled, and didn't waste time.

None of our stuff broke.  All of our stuff was moved to our satisfaction.  Their communication before and after the move was more than I would have expected as well.

Will definitely use them again

  Thank you Celis Movers and Storage as you did a great job moving out of our old home into a nicer new home.
The two man moving crew showed up on time with a very clean new 20' moving truck.  They were very courteous and easy to give instructions to.  They did a great job moving the house furniture first being very careful in packing and moving.  The second and third trips were for all of our outdoor trees and small plants and many lawn ornaments that we had spread out over a acre.  The reason for a small truck was that our driveway is a tight access and slightly steep that a longer moving van could not make.  The were very careful about taking our plants, pots and lawn furniture.  As it was a short local move to our new house there was not much time lost in making several trips.

They worked nonstop from 8AM till 5PM without not even taking time out for lunch.  The company is run very professionally with excellent working staff and Rolando handles the initial communication and estimating is very efficient.

I have used two other moving companies recently and Celis Movers is by far superior in quality and quantity of work.  I would definitely use them again for any moving or hauling as they can charge by the hour or by the job.

  I could not have asked for a better move experience than with Celis Movers! What I thought would be an extremely stressful event actually ended up being worry free. From the first conversation to the completion of the move, every step was clearly communicated, monitored, and executed exactly to plan. I very much appreciated the professional and pleasant interactions with Rolando and crew. Everyone was extremely diligent and took great care start to finish; nothing damaged, nothing missing, everything organized really well. This is a high integrity company that you can rely on.

thumb Mona L.

  Rolando and his team were GREAT. Showed up when they said they would, kept everything organized, didn't break a thing. The guys were nice and the price was more than reasonable. Would absolutely hire them again.

thumb Marian S.

  Rolando and his team recently helped us move to Southern California. They took exceptional care of all of our belongings with efficient speed and cheerful teamwork. They also pulled off the Herculean effort of moving our hot tub through a tight maze of narrow paths and low roof thresholds with aplomb! Special shout out to Roberto, who had the strength of three men. We highly recommend Celis Movers and Storage. Thanks Rolando!

thumb H F.

  A hidden gem. In need of a local Northern California move and cross country move to Florida. Called multiple (5) nationally known moving companies, all of which had extremely rude, condescending frontline staff. Was advised by all "good luck finding anyone....why did you even call....don't you know this the busiest time for movers"). Earliest available.bookings ranged from 6-8 weeks out. Came across a local company, Celis Movers,  on an internet search. Someone answered the phone immediately. First question was "How  can we help you?" Rolando immediately began asking detailed questions, listened intently, and addressed EVERY concern. He was able to juggle schedules around to meet my urgent needs.
Donaldo & Sacramento were the team assigned to me. They arrived on time. Had excellent Covid precautions (provided proof of vaccination, masked, frequent hand washing). Reviewed the contract tgoroughly with me prior to beginning the job. Very polite, professional, efficient, extremely hard working. They are a local company but  can handle out of state moves as well. Full service is available from packing to moving to storage. Price extremely reasonable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

thumb Cat M.

  Rolando and team were beyond professional, efficient organized and thorough during our recent move out of a 3 story townhouses they navigated marrow stairs and helped with disassembly and reassembly of furniture. Their quote was honest and after the amount of time our move took - a deal compared to what others quoted.

Highly recommended!!

thumb Melissa M.

  We have nothing but high praise for this company.  They handled our recent move flawlessly, including a period of storage of our household furniture and belongings.  Their combination of professionalism and a friendly, helpful attitude made this move go so much more smoothly than I'd anticipated.  The in-person estimated cost was fair (actually MUCH lower than another highly-rated local co.) and there were no 'increased price surprises' at the end.  We were impressed with the careful way they wrapped each and every piece of furniture individually with padded blankets before moving, and credit that extra care with the fact that we had no damage to any items in this move (except for a couple of things we packed and moved ourselves ...we should've let them do it! 🙂

thumb Peggy K.

  After quoting a very good price through Yelp request, and saying they could move our hot tub with two men, they then said it would actually take four and charged us for 45 min travel for all four men each way. That more than quadrupled the cost. Felt like a bait and switch. They did a fine job with the work itself but I think should have quoted the travel cost up front and been more realistic re the staff needed.

thumb Caitlin H.

  Superb service with a smile!! Showed up precisely on time, handled our move efficiently and thoughtfully, and with GREAT positive atttitudes, helping to make this stressful event a little less painless. Rolando's communication was on point before and throughout the process. Recommend them highly to anyone!!!

thumb Tony C.

  We used Celis movers in January 2020 for moving items locally from our house into a storage unit and then to move our 3 bedroom home to another state.  We also used their packing service for one day.  We were very pleased at every step.  Everyone was very pleasant, efficient and worked extremely hard.  The quote was fair and they stuck to it.  They handled our items with care and everything arrived unharmed.  I would use Celis movers again and I would recommend them to anyone else needing a local or long-distance mover.
