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.)

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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!

      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

      We used Celis for packing and a short move from San Rafael to Novato. They were really, really great. Very reasonable pricing, very friendly and helpful, clean and gentle with our stuff and the homes, and overall it was a great experience. We previously used another local moving company which was also great, but they definitely scratched a few floors and pieces of furniture. We haven't found a single dent or scratch in anything Celis moved. While I NEVER want to move ever again, if we do, we'll call Celis to help us do it.

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

    thumb Alexis L.

      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! 🙂

      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.

      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!!

      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!

    thumb TR P.

      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.
