Wow, these guys are efficient and professional. They told me it would be 4 hours to move a storage shed to my house. It look them less than an hour to get everything pack and ready to roll. They met me at the house and it took them less than 25 minutes to roll it all out. I did not want it out in the house until it gets deep cleaned from storage.10 stars🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Also,Nothing broke and they brought it to Camarillo unloaded the truck so professional I recommend this company to anybody that wants to move long distance or even local, very very professional.

These guys are the best! Competitive pricing. Expert movers. When I tell you they didn't so much as bump a wall on the move out or move in--I'm not even exaggerating. Fast. Efficient. Friendly. Communicative. They moved me out of state and within days my property arrived safely. Every last piece. They also moved a baby grand piano for me...and had the expertise and experience to move such a valuable antique. Highly recommend.

Moving is stressful. The last thing you need is to hire a bad moving company.I had a Great experience with LAP Movers.After seeing hundreds of positive reviews,I called and left them a message.Jose responded back immediately by text and then phone. Throughout the process he patiently answered my laundry list of questions. He made me feel comfortable that I had made the right choice.The cost was fair and actually less than most, especially since they supply tape and loan wardrobe boxes at no extra charge.The movers showed up 10 minutes early on the scheduled date. They carefully checked the boxes I packed, and added tape (free with move) and plastic wrap ( that I supplied), as needed. They took down the TV's and shelves, securely... taping all the screws and bolts to the items, (which was a lifesaver when reinstalling at the destination.) They worked with me in sorting the items going to storage, and those going to the new house.They finished loading right on time.Not one item was scratched or damaged in any way.The only hiccup was their GPS routed them on a road with construction, causing a 20 minute delivery delay.The Manager adjusted the travel charge without issue.I Highly reccomend LAP!👍👍read more

Was seeking a specialized mover that could handle my heavy kitchen appliance (over 600 lbs!) move request and came across LAP. They were quick in responding and I was able to book them the same day. They were equipped with with all the proper tools and ramps making the job look easy. I’m told they move heavy odds/ends, appliances, pianos, safes etc all the time. Not only did their experience and professionalism show, they were careful to ensure my high-end appliance and floors were not damaged. Shout out to Jose and David for taking care of me!
Jay Larson
Actually, went with this company twice in one week. First was because I knew I needed help with the refrigerator, washer and dryer, if the VA could be believed, I should have been able to get the rest myself. But after the wonderful experience I had the first time, they were so professional and respectful, it was amazing. The second time they showed up, it was not that I hired a great crew, but they made me feel that I had friends that were helping me. It is just that sometimes the echoes of Afghanistan makes it so that I can not get out of bed in the morning and this company was there for me, thanks!
Conor O'Brien
I used this company for my move and junk removal. I realized I accidently left my expensive pair of airpods in a box that was in the junk pile. I called them and they immediately picked up, facetimed me and went through every pile of junk. They found them and offered to mail them to me. They were very friendly, efficient, on time and more importantly, trust worthy. Highly recommend!

Jamie Barillas
Absolutely outstanding job! I used Lap Movers for moving my mom today. These guys are top notch!!! They were on time and truly great people. They were not only fast but they are professional and took excellent care of our belongings. I highly recommend Lap Movers for any move you have. I will be using them again for my own move in two weeks and will keep them for any move we have in the future as well as recommend them to any friends or family for their moves. Great job Luis and team!!
Vicki Harvey
David and Luis showed up right on time and went to work. Amazing job. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to move around the corner or across the country. The men were efficient, courteous and hard working. They both knew their jobs. Thank you David and Luis.

Local Movers

in Los Angeles

Moving for the First Time?

To start your local move, you will request a few free estimates from different moving companies. Once you decide on a mover and sign on with them, they will assign you your designated moving specialist. They will be your main person of contact and handle all of the paperwork throughout the moving process. Your moving specialist will provide you with an Order of Service, a document detailing the agreed services, costs, and logistical aspects. On the day of the move, you’ll receive a Bill of Lading, a dual-purpose legal document that serves as your contract and an inventory that lists the condition of your items before the move. After your signature, the expert moving crew will begin loading your possessions onto the truck. If you purchase packing services, a packing team will come to your home a few days before your move to pack all your items so they are secure during transport. Upon arrival at your new place, the movers will offload and position your belongings, marking each one off of the Bill of Lading as they do so. Once everything’s inside, you will inspect your items to ensure all items are present and undamaged. When you’re content, you’ll acknowledge the move’s successful conclusion by signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

Past customers’ experiences can provide valuable insights into the company’s professionalism, efficiency, and care for belongings. According to Forbes, “Professional movers should have training and experience. If a moving company has been in business for a decade or more, you can expect them to hire and properly train the right people for the job.” Top companies have an overall rating of at least 4/5 stars on Google Customer Reviews. You should also ensure that the moving company is fully licensed and insured. Additionally, it’s beneficial to inquire about the range of services the company offers. Do they provide packing, unpacking, and furniture assembly? Understanding their capabilities can help ensure all your moving needs are covered.

What's the Typical Expense for a Local Move in Los Angeles?

How Quickly Can a Moving Company Finish My Local Move?

The duration of a local move depends on various factors, such as the size of the move, the distance between locations, and the specific requirements of the move. explains, for a local move, “You’ll have the shortest moving process. Packing can take extra time depending on how you approach it, but you can usually expect your move to be completed in a day.” However, it’s always a good idea to discuss the timeline with the moving company to set realistic expectations.

At LAP Movers, we prioritize efficiency as a full-service moving company. Our team is trained to handle local moves swiftly, usually within a day or two, without compromising the care and safety of your belongings. We work diligently to ensure your move is completed within your moving timeline, causing minimal disruption to your routine.

This way, you have all the information you need to make the right choice for your move. “Ensuring a quick yet careful move is part of our promise to our customers,” states co-founder Luis Almaraz, emphasizing our commitment to efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Are Local Movers Licensed and Adequately Insured?

It’s crucial to ensure that the moving company you choose is licensed and insured. A licensed company adheres to the regulations and standards set by the state, ensuring professionalism and accountability. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number.” The FMCSA also provides a useful Moving Company Checklist to help people ensure their move is secure.

Insurance, on the other hand, protects all parties involved in the move. It is the industry standard for moving companies to carry worker’s comp and general liability insurance policies.

LAP Movers is fully licensed, holding a California State License (Cal-T) under license number CAL-T 191847 and a United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) license under number USDOT 3194473.

Where Can I Find Online Reviews for an LA Local Moving Service?

Online reviews are a valuable resource when researching moving companies. The New York Times agrees, “When choosing a moving company, reputation and experience are crucial.” Third-party websites like Google and Yelp provide a platform for past customers to share their experiences, offering insights into the company’s quality of service, professionalism, and efficiency. It is important to look for reviews on third-party websites rather than the moving company’s website, as the reviews on third-party websites cannot be filtered by the moving company.

At LAP Movers, we value the feedback of our customers, and we’re proud of the positive reviews we’ve received over the years. Our team’s dedication to excellence and customer satisfaction is proven in the numerous positive testimonials and high ratings we’ve garnered. We invite potential customers to explore these reviews on Google and Yelp to get a better understanding of the quality of service we provide.  “Seeing our customers share their positive experiences is incredibly rewarding,” says co-founder Luis Almaraz. “It motivates us to maintain high standards and continue providing exceptional service.”

How Will I Be Compensated For Items Damaged or Lost During the Move?

What most people know as insurance, the moving industry refers to as ‘moving valuation.’ Moving valuation is a plan that covers you if any of your items are lost or damaged during the move. There are traditionally at least three valuation plans: Limited Liability, Full Value Protection, and Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration. Federal law mandates that moving companies provide Limited Liability Coverage at no extra charge for every local move. This coverage compensates the customer at a rate of 60 cents per pound per damaged or lost item. However, some customers find this basic coverage insufficient, prompting the availability of Full Value Protection plans at an additional fee.

If you opt for Full Value Protection, the moving company is obligated to repair, replace, or reimburse you based on the current market value for any items damaged or lost during the move. This Forbes article advises, “If you decide to purchase the extra moving insurance through the movers or from a third-party provider, make sure you get the coverage details in writing and understand what’s covered and excluded.” It’s essential to declare items valued at $100 or more per pound on an Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration to ensure they are adequately covered. Without this declaration, the moving company won’t be held responsible for these specific items.

At LAP Movers, we prioritize the safety and security of your belongings. We not only adhere to federal regulations by offering Limited Liability Coverage but also provide the option of Full Value Protection and the Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration at an additional cost for those seeking additional peace of mind. When you entrust your move to LAP Movers, you can choose the level of protection that best suits your requirements, ensuring a seamless and worry-free moving experience. “Ensuring our customers’ belongings are protected during their move is a top priority for us,” states co-founder Luis Almaraz. “We offer a variety of coverage options to give our customers the confidence and peace of mind they deserve.”

How Can a Local Moving Company Work Around My Schedule?

Most professional moving companies will pair you with a dedicated moving specialist to handle all the paperwork and scheduling and answer your questions. A flexible moving company will work closely with you to accommodate your schedule and preferences. Whether you prefer a weekday move, a weekend move, or a move during specific hours, the company should be able to adjust accordingly.

At LAP Movers, we understand that every move is unique, and we strive to offer flexibility to meet our customers’ specific needs. Our team will work with you to schedule the move at a time that’s most convenient for you, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience. Your satisfaction is our top priority, and we go the extra mile to accommodate your preferences. “We’re dedicated to making your move as convenient and stress-free as possible,” states co-founder Luis Almaraz. “Our scheduling flexibility is just one way we tailor our services to fit your unique moving needs.”
