House To Home Moving Blog

Oakmont of Fair Oaks Visit

Hahahahaha I love this group of people right here!! Just visited the ED, Terry Ervin and the new MD, Janae Fernandez at Oakmont of Fair Oaks. What a great team and amazing community. Terry wanted the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce Honorary Mayor Jacob Giorgi to make an appearance. But not too close.

Thanks for the review Hope!


The guys from House to Home were absolutely amazing! I have never hired movers before and was a little worried, but the team was perfect. Showed up on time (early!) and worked hard the entire time. They were really nice, super hardworking and very careful! Also, their rates were cheaper than any other movers.
Highly recommend!!!!

Hiring a Moving Company

House To Home Moving provides free in-home written estimates prior to the move date to determine the cost and leave you with a price in writing. Remember, an over the phone or verbal estimate is not binding and shouldn’t be trusted. The estimator will arrive at the time and date previously arranged by you and House To Home Moving. Once the estimator completes a visual inspection of what needs to be done, they can determine the procedure and equipment to properly complete your move.

Packing and unpacking

House To Home Moving Company offers packing and unpacking services along with the packing materials needed for your job. On the in-home estimate, the estimator will make a count of all the materials needed along with the time it will take to properly pack all the items discussed. Once the evaluation is done, a price is given for the packing services along with a timeline of how long it will take. Most pack jobs are done the day prior to the actual move. This ensures everything is ready when the moving crew arrives and the move will be done as efficiently as possible. House To Home Moving Company only uses the best packing materials and our movers are trained to pack everything properly so that it arrives in your new home in the same condition as when it was packed. Our packing crews will label the boxes as they are packed and ensure the contents are safe for transportation.

Loading and unloading

Whether you choose to pack your items yourself or pay for packing services, House to Home Moving will load and unload your belongings. Since loading and unloading are arguably some of the hardest parts of a move, professional help will make a big difference.

When you leave it up to the experts, your belongings will be properly loaded to maximize space in the moving truck and ensure the safety of your property. House to Home Moving will also unload your belongings for you, making the transition into your new place much easier.

Truck driving

House to Home Moving also handle the transportation of your household goods. If you’re not comfortable driving a moving truck yourself, don’t worry! House to Home Moving will transport your belongings to your new home quickly and efficiently. When looking for a moving company, make sure you check whether they service local or long-distance moves.

Furniture disassembly and assembly 

House to Home Moving help can facilitate so many aspects of your move — including furniture disassembly and assembly. If you’re moving extra-large furniture, it sometimes needs to be disassembled before loading it onto a truck or into a moving container. If you can’t deconstruct furniture on your own, we offer these services.


You should pay close attention to moving insurance before booking a moving company. Moving insurance is technically called valuation (which functions like insurance). In the chance that your belongings are damaged or lost during your move, having moving insurance will give you peace of mind during your move.


The cost of hiring a moving company depends on a variety of factors, including the size of your home and the distance of your move. Different insurance plans and the transportation of specialty items will also contribute to the final cost of hiring a moving company.

There are a lot of variables when it comes to moving and every move is different. A few things to consider are:

  • Distance from where the items are to the truck (on load and unload)
  • Packing or unpacking services
  • Disassembling and reassembling furniture
  • Preparation
  • Accessibility
  • Stairs/elevators

While we are still in the Coronavirus crisis and everyone is social distancing. We are offering a service to make our estimates easier for the community. You can use Facetime on iPhones or Skype on Android phones to get a more accurate estimate for your move. Also, our movers will wear masks and gloves during the entire move.

Moving During COVID-19

What are our COVID-19 policies and procedures?

We understand and share the concerns you have about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. This message is to inform you that House to Home Moving Inc. classifies as an “essential service” and our company is still open and providing moving services.

The health and safety of our customers and employees are our number one priority. We have put the proper procedures in place to comply with government directives.

All employees are following strict guidelines for proper infection control precautions. Such as wearing masks and gloves while working, washing hands as frequent as possible, wearing shoe covers (booties) before entering customer’s homes, and keeping physical contact to a minimum.

All employees are also screened daily to ensure they have not been infected. The screening process includes monitoring employee temperatures, asking how they feel, and monitoring any coughing or sneezing. If any employee has any signs of illness they are sent home immediately and not to return to work, until they have been cleared to return by a healthcare provider.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding House to Home Moving’s COVID-19 policy and procedures you can contact our main office at 916-484-1144.

Can I move during COVID-19?

You can probably move during COVID-19, but we recommend you check with your moving company and local elected officials to see if your move has been affected by orders restricting travel and gatherings.

Will gloves help if I move during COVID-19?

If you have to move during COVID-19, gloves will help protect your hands from injury, but they aren’t recommended for preventing the virus. Rather than help prevent the spread of COVID-19, gloves can actually create another surface for the virus to live on.

“I don’t think (gloves) are going to do anything but give people a false sense of security, waste time, and create more demand for something that’s unnecessary,” Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, told TODAY.

What is the best way to disinfect my personal belongings?

The CDC recommends cleaning frequently used items and surfaces as often as possible with “household cleaners and EPA-registered disinfectants that are appropriate for the surface, following label instructions.”

You can also check out a list of disinfectants the CDC indicates are most likely to be effective against COVID-19, including Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Lysol® Disinfectant Spray, and Virasept.

How can I minimize contact if I have to get a moving estimate?

If you have to move, consider getting a virtual in-home estimate rather than have movers come to your home. Many moving companies can give you an estimate simply by looking at a video of your home, or by doing a virtual walkthrough on apps like FaceTime and Skype.

Call us for a free virtual estimate!

How else could COVID-19 affect my move?

The full consequences of COVID-19 aren’t known, but there are several ways the pandemic could potentially affect your move:

  • Temporary government orders in the cities you are moving to and from could prevent you from moving.
  • Temporary government orders could prevent you from eating at restaurants en route to your new home.
  • Potential grocery store shortages could prevent you from stocking up the fridge at your new home.
  • Widespread transmission of COVID-19 and moving company policies could limit the number of workers available to help with your move.
  • Social distancing guidelines could prevent family, friends, and hired labor from gathering in groups of 10 or more and standing within six feet of each other while loading and unloading your moving truck.
  • Money received via a federal government economic stimulus plan could be saved for moving expenses when life gets back to normal.

Another 5 Star Review

All staff I have worked with from House to Home, on 2 moves now, have always been friendly and accommodating. Both times the 2 man moving crew was efficient and courteous. They stayed within budget on each move as well. The guys I worked with, Francis and “Messy”, were outstanding and did a very good job overall. I recommend House to Home for anyone needing a fair price and excellent service start to finish.
