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.




      Moving is always stressful. It was serendipitous that I came across Celis. They turned onto the street ahead of me as we had been contemplating who to use to ship (and maybe even to pack) our things as we prepared for our imminent move from Petaluma back to Sacramento. There was the truck--and there was my answer. I called them up and, even on a Sunday, Rolando Celis got back to me and answered all of my initial questions, from how to move my church organ to packing and shipping to 85 miles away. He was VERY communicative and prompt. He even came out to our apartment on a day that worked for us to give a free, no-obligation estimate just viewing our items. He followed-up through the process, ensuring that we were ready, gave us reminders, kept us informed. He said that he would send 3 men to load the truck--3 to load and 2 to deliver. On the morning of the move, he ended us sending 4, instead--making it much faster and more efficient. He under-promised and over-performed. When the staff came up to our apartment, they had all the supplies they needed, which they brought along. Not only were they hard-working, they were extremely polite and referred to me as sir, which seemed like they had great old-fashioned, family-style values generally lost to the world today. Another small (but great) detail is that when I offered the promised payment to them upon their arrival, they insisted on receiving it after delivery. A previous company seemed like the money was most important, but Celis made service first, collection second. They made the somewhat long-haul to Sacramento, and I was amazed at how well everything survived the trip, and similarly so, that they had the most amazing equipment to get up THREE flights of stairs. They never complained, though the lugging up to the top floor must've been brutal. Overall, I was similarly satisfied as everyone else who reviewed seemed to be. I'd recommend them above anyone else. And that took the stress away, so I thank you, Celis!

      Hired Celis for a local move (SF to San Rafael) of large appliances. Rolando accurately estimated the timing for the move, was extremely communicative and patient, and made the whole process easy. The team was fantastic and kind; I was really impressed at how they moved an extremely heavy, tall refrigerator down a narrow set of stairs and maneuvered it in through my garage. I'd 100% recommend Celis and would use them for my next move.

      We had not moved in 18 years but then came the time to downsize and economize. We were dreading moving because of previous experiences. Because of their excellent reviews we chose to work with Celis. All that we dreaded was gone when the exceedingly professional crew arrived to pack up the house. They were on time, they were gentle, they were efficient, good humored, flexible, and the price was more than fair. On the same day they packed up, they unloaded the vans, set up the basics, and not one single item was broken or damaged!! They've come back twice to pick up all the boxes. Rolando and his team are first rate and we recommend them without reservation

      Orlando and his crew saved the day!! They came through on a last minute emergency when the original moving company had an equipment problem when their truck broke down Orlando came to the rescue they could have charged me anything they wanted because I was desperate!! Yet his price was the same as he would have charged me any other time,  on top of that I got excellent service with movers the were cautious, considerate and super efficient. We also got done in record time. I am blown away by this crew!!!  I highly recommend this company I cannot say enough good things about them!!!

    thumb Scott M.

      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.

      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 .

      Last-minute request for a move as the company we originally booked with canceled on us last-minute and Celis put us on their schedule and arrived within just a few hours. Awesome! The whole crew was professional and prompt. Will recommend to all who will listen.

    thumb Ashley K.

      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.

      10/10 would recommend! I don't have any plans to move again, but if I do Celis will be my first call. They were fast, so careful, friendly, and took all of the stress out of moving day! I appreciated the COVID precautions that were taken as that was a major point of concern for me. Communication from start to finish was clear and there were no surprises -- their estimate was right on.

    thumb Lara P.

      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 were in an absolute bind.Rolando came to the house and saw our situation. We had no way to move and had to be out the next day. He and his crew came at 6:30 the next morning in Ca. They packed us up and were at our new house in Wa. State the following morning. They  took great care of our belongings and were polite and very professional. We absolutely think they are the best and have been telling everyone about them. If you need to move you will have the best experience if you call Celis Movers.

    thumb Marlise B.

      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.

      Rolando is the consummate professional....he is responsive, thorough and reliable.
    He drove all the way to Cloverdale to estimate our move but unfortunately our circumstances changed and we did not work with him. I would,highly recommend him to any and all who need to make a move.

    thumb Louis M.

      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.)
