Celis Movers is a family owned business formed and run completely in Sonoma County. Born and raised in Petaluma, California in 2000, we started by helping clients with low budgets. Then, slowly growing to help clients get from point A to point B with as little stress and troubles as possible.




      As a local, growing fine furniture store, we started using Celis Movers this summer.  One day, all four families who received our furniture went out of their to relay compliments to me about the Celis team.  How they wore the blue nitrile gloves when carrying in the sofas and chairs; very polite; moved existing furniture around.  All the Celis employees that I've met so far are very impressive.  (I'm the owner of Wine Country Fine Furniture, on Bodega Ave. in Petaluma.)

      Celis Movers came to our rescue when the movers we had a signed contract with failed to show up. In a complete panic because we absolutely had to move that day, we heard about Celis from a neighbor. Within 90 minutes of contacting them, Rolando was able to give a bid and have a truck there to be loaded. His crew of Roberto and Vicenzio loaded the truck so well that not a single thing was damaged. 36 hours later, Roberto and Sacramento arrived to our new out-of-state home and unloaded everything with incredible care and respect. We had over 200 boxes, and each was placed in the correct room in the house, even if we changed our minds and then requested a different location. Moving items into the house took hours because we had so much, and Roberto and Sacramento remained cheerful and upbeat throughout the process. I cannot say enough good things about Rolando, Vicenzio, Roberto, and Sacramento. They turned a disaster into a wonderful experience. I only wish I had started out with Celis Movers from the get-go and avoided all the angst we experienced with the company that flaked on us. My dad always said, "Go with a local, smaller, privately owned company and you'll get the best service." Once again, Dad was right! You cannot go wrong with Celis. Many thanks to this wonderful team!

      Great service! It was a last minute request and they accommodated. The movers were super friendly, professional and communicative

      We recently (end of April 2021) moved cross-country and needed a Moving Company.

    I researched for a LONG TIME and found that the best reviews were for Celis Movers in Petaluma, CA.
    My main criteria for any company is always "Honesty & Integrity".
    That is why I ready every review...I am looking for those qualities.
    I hit the Bull's-Eye!

    It is a wonderful feeling when you trust your moving company and don't have to worry about your stuff.

    Reading reviews pays off because we are TOTALLY satisfied with the service from Celis Movers.

    The entire operation from the initial consult, to the packing team, to moving day, to delivery was A CLASS ACT, 100%

    The Celis Movers Team members are Incredible!  And Rolando (the owner) is working right there alongside his team.

    Rolando and his team are so down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and every detail of the operation was done with care. I trusted that all my belongings were going to be safely loaded and would reach the destination undamaged.

    As a side note:
    I wanted to ship my car (enclosed) because of the pandemic. While trying to find a company, I found that a lot of companies sub-contract out the transport of the car cross-country.
    During our initial consult, I mentioned this to Rolando.
    The bottom line is that Rolando had a truck big enough to load all my belongings, and furniture.....with the car loaded in the middle.
    My car arrived without a scratch on it!

    I had contacted Rolando many times before the move with questions and all were answered.
    I contacted him a few times after the delivery with follow-up questions.....believe me when I say that this is a FULL-SERVICE Company

    Anyone who has moved is VERY stressful.

    Thank You, Rolando & the Celis Movers (Team), for making this cross-country move as easy as possible!

    The End.

      The guys showed up early and packed carefully but still quick.  The guys didn't mess around and I almost had to force them to take a break.   The positive attitude, speed and care are def worth the price.

      While we did not end up using this company, I was very impressed with the professionalism and ability to try to make it work. Prompt, courteous, and thorough.

    thumb Eliza C.

      How lucky can you get! Excellent  service. Very professional and everything delivered as promised. Nothing broken nothing bent and very very courteous and communicative. Highly recommend Celis Movers. Absolutely took the stress out of moving long distance from two homes to two new homes.

      It was tricky who to go with as there are lots of moving companies that are prompt to respond and provide similar quotes. However, I felt Celis Movers were not just quick to respond, they provided a quote after seeing photos of the items, stuck to their quote, texted when they were on their way, stayed on time, were very respectful of our items and remained prompt in responding even after the move. Sacramento and his partner even made sure to wear the shoe covers (which you have to request in advance) each time they entered our new home, regardless of how heavy each item was. Based on my experience, I'd definitely work with them again.

      I can't say enough good things about my crew of movers--Sacramento, Roberto, Vincenzo, and Lazaro ( please excuse me if I misspelled your names) who arrived before the appointed time to start our move. Great attitudes, so friendly, and just plain fun. They moved us from a big second floor storage unit to our new home that has such a steep driveway that they had to carry things down from the truck. Not a single complaint about it. They made every effort to make sure I was happy with their service. Thanks for making the move so pleasant!

    thumb Cyndy R.

      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! 🙂

      Hands down the best moving experience we have ever had in our lives. If you want a smooth and easy move with a company that is totally on top of things, this is it. Rolando was amazing throughout the whole process, he always answered his phone or got back to us immediately with our many questions we had. The customer service with this company is five star and very unique in today's world. It is rare to have this level of customer service these days and wow what a difference it makes! Moving is always stressful but using this company took a huge amount of stress off of us. They packed for us and moved us and I know who I am calling next time I need to move and who I will refer all my friends to. The moving guys were also wonderful, very respectful, hard working, and all around nice people. We also felt like the cost for the packing and moving way very reasonable, much less than the last time we moved. It was worth every penny. We are very happy customers!

      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!

      Rolando and his team were so amazing to work with. I have had horrible experiences with movers before and Celis is the exact opposite. They were extremely responsive, worked to fit in with our schedule, showed up on time, nice and early instead of having to wait around all day, and were very friendly and quick. The best moving experience I've ever had.

    thumb Zach N.

      This is an overdue review. We had an excellent experience with Celis Movers two years ago on a local move. Rolando responded quickly to my request for quote Mon 12/17 and was able to help us move Wed 12/19. I wanted an hourly instead of a fixed bid and he was able to do that. I explained what I needed, and he estimated 3 movers for 5 hours. I was a little surprised that the minimum was 5 hours, that seemed like a lot to me, but Rolando was spot on - it took 5 hours 15 minutes! The 3 movers showed up at 7am on the dot and they were super hard workers and super fast and super careful the whole time. At first I thought that they were pricey but after seeing how hard and fast they worked I feel that it was definitely good value for the price and worth every penny. Highly recommend!

      I had the pleasure of working with Celia Movers in October of last year. I underestimated how much work it would be to pack up my mom's apartment and my tiny loft. They came and gave an estimate  for packing at my mom's, then my place. They gave great advice on which items wouldn't survive moving and which pieces weren't worth taking with us.
    Two men arrived on time. They packed the items I requested quickly but carefully. They packed and transported my items over to my mom's place where I had two pods. Then they proceeded to pack all our stuff into one pod!!
     There's no way I could have packed all that stuff into one pod. And it arrived in Kansas intact-nothing broken!
     I almost cried when I realized I could have hired them to pack and move us to Kansas.
    I'd already received and sign for the pods before I found them.
     Save yourself the time, energy and hassle of doing it alone. Hire these guys!!
