Donald Sigala and Scott Rudd were one of the most professional, hard working and courteous movers I have ever had. This was my 11th and final move in the military that spanned 30 years and I couldn’t have asked for a better company and moving team to handle my family’s personal belongings. Moving is already stressful especially for military families and it was so nice that this part was NOT! Thank you very much.Noel DahlkeCAPT (retired), USN

Long-Distance Movers in Central Coast, California

Moving for the First Time?

A long-distance move begins with obtaining a quote from a moving company. Once the estimate is accepted and you’ve coordinated with your assigned moving specialist, you’ll receive an Order for Service document outlining your move’s details. On the day of the move, your movers will load your pre-packed belongings into the truck and present you with a Bill of Lading, which serves as the contract for the items being transported. During unloading, movers will cross-check each item against the Bill of Lading. After everything is unloaded and arranged in your new home, the movers will perform a final walkthrough with you to address any remaining questions or concerns.

What Comprehensive Services Do Central Coast Moving Companies Offer Beyond Long-Distance Moves?

In addition to long-distance relocations, numerous Central Coast moving companies offer comprehensive services to cater to their customers’ diverse moving needs. Transportation, loading and unloading, and furniture disassembly and reassembly are typically included in the cost of a long-distance move. However, many moving companies office additional services as add-ons. According to moveBuddha, “Depending on your needs and budget, they’ll provide the following services –

  • Packing and unpacking
  • Appliance disconnects/reconnects (usually done by a third-party company)
  • Crating and uncrating
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly
  • Storage”

Lompoc Van & Storage

How Will My Moving Company Keep My Belongings Safe During the Move?

Moving companies use many strategies to ensure your belongings are safe and sound during the move. This includes using high-quality packing materials, securing items in the moving truck so they don’t move around, and handling each item carefully. The movers are professionals with the skills to look after and protect your belongings throughout the moving process.


At Lompoc Van & Storage, we put the safety of your belongings at the top of our priority list. Our team uses high-quality packing materials and professional techniques to protect your belongings. Plus, our moving trucks come with the latest security features to further ensure the safety of your stuff. “We trained our movers to handle all items with the highest level of care,” says Owner Chris DiJulio, “We’re committed to making sure your belongings get to your new destination without any damage or loss.”

Lompoc Van & Storage

What Insurance Coverage Options Do Long-Distance Moving Companies Offer in Case of Damaged Items?

Understanding your insurance options is crucial when planning a long-distance move to ensure your belongings are adequately protected. Moving companies typically offer several insurance plans to cover potential damages during the move. The primary options include Full Value Protection, Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration, and Released Value Protection (Limited Liability Coverage).

Full Value Protection: This comprehensive coverage option ensures that the moving company is liable for the full replacement value of lost or damaged items. Under this plan, if an item is damaged or lost, the mover will repair, replace, or fiscally compensate you for the item’s current market value. This protection plan offers the highest level of security for your belongings and comes at an additional cost. It’s a worthwhile investment if you have valuable or irreplaceable items.
Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration: You can declare exceptionally valuable items, such as fine art, antiques, or jewelry, separately to ensure they are covered under the insurance plan. This declaration allows you to list high-value items that exceed a certain value threshold, typically $100 per pound. By declaring these items, you ensure they receive special attention and coverage, providing peace of mind that your belongings are safe and protected during the move.
Released Value Protection (Limited Liability Coverage): This is the most basic coverage option and is typically included at no additional cost. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), “With released value protection, there’s no additional cost, but you’ll only receive up to 60 cents per pound for an item.” If an item is damaged or lost, the reimbursement amount is based on its weight rather than its actual value. While this option offers minimal protection, it is often chosen by those moving items of lower value or willing to assume more risk to save on moving costs.

Lompoc Van & Storage offers all these insurance options to cater to your needs and preferences. Our Full Value Protection plan ensures that your valuable items are fully covered, giving you the highest level of security. For exceptionally valuable items, our Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration allows you to ensure these special items are specifically accounted for. If you prefer a cost-effective option, our Released Value Protection provides basic coverage to protect your belongings. “We work closely with you to determine the best insurance plan for your move, ensuring you have the peace of mind that your items are well-protected throughout the relocation process,” says General Manager Jason Turner.

Lompoc Van & Storage

On Average, How Long Does a Long-Distance Move from Central Coast California Take?

The duration of a long-distance move depends on several factors, including the distance traveled, the size of your furnishings, and the time of year. Typically, a cross-country move can take a few days to a couple of weeks. According to Moving APT, “National movers can take anywhere from 2 to 22 days to deliver items depending on your specific move, so be patient and make sure that you have reviewed all documentation pertaining to deliveries.” Your moving company should provide an estimated timeline based on your specific circumstances.


Lompoc Van & Storage strives to provide efficient and timely long-distance moving services. Our experienced team will give you a clear timeline based on your move’s details, ensuring you know what to expect every step of the way. As an independent moving company, meaning we are not part of a van line, we take one truck and one team on your move rather than switching trucks half way through like agents of a van line do. “We aim to complete your move as quickly and smoothly as possible without compromising service quality,” states Owner Chris DiJulio.

How Do I Know If Long-Distance Moving Companies Are Licensed and Insured?

To ensure you hire a safe and reputable moving company, verify its licenses and insurance. According to the FMCSA, “Interstate movers must be registered with the Federal government and have a U.S. DOT number.” You can verify this number through the FMCSA’s Moving License Database. Insurance details should also be readily available.


Lompoc Van & Storage is fully licensed and insured, providing you with confidence in our services. We carry the following licenses:

  • USDOT License #517055
  • MC License #126931

What Storage Solutions Do Long-Distance Moving Companies Offer?

These services can be helpful if you need to temporarily store your belongings between move-out and move-in. It’s important to choose a company with secure and well-maintained storage facilities.


Lompoc Van & Storage provides warehouse storage solutions to accommodate your needs.

Which Items Are Moving Companies Not Allowed to Transport on a Long-Distance Move?

Moving companies are restricted from transporting certain items for safety and legal reasons. These typically include hazardous materials like flammable liquids, explosives, pets, plants, and perishable goods. It’s important to review the list of prohibited items with your moving company before packing. According to USA Today, “Common household items that moving services don’t allow include the following:


  • Acids and corrosives
