If moving a household involved only the easy things, just about everyone would be doing it. But there’s a lot more to it than just moving books and clothing and pots and pans. The real trick of moving is how to handle the “tricky” items. I’m referring to those things that need special care for safe transport. They include lamps, flat screen TVs, framed artwork, furniture, wall hangings, mirrors, and glass tops or panels. All of these are fragile, valuable, and require special attention to ensure they are not damaged in the process of loading, transit, and unloading.

Everyone has their own reasons for moving. For some, it’s the lure of a better career opportunity with more income. For others, it’s a need to be closer to those they love. And I suppose some people move just because they get restless. Chalk it up to a human tendency to think yonder skies are bluer and the grass is greener.

The term commercial moving is an industry catch-all. Essentially, it refers to moving anything used in the conduct of business. To get an idea of how big the commercial moving space is, think of retail stores, offices, factories, hospitals, libraries, museums, schools. Now think of their seemingly endless needs for furniture, fixtures, equipment, inventory and supplies. As a business-moving company, Ernie’s Van & Storage handles projects for many such businesses.

If you’re planning to move, perhaps you’ve wondered about which moving companies are available to serve you in your new home town. Good question! While Ernie’s Van & Storage provides moving and storage services to customers throughout the U.S., our home court advantage is north central California. We maintain two full-service locations in Rocklin, California, and Grass Valley, California. It’s about a 45-minute drive between the two locations. (I’ve traveled it many times.)

You unwrap a new toaster on Christmas, and the old one goes into the attic. You add a few pounds during the winter, so you buy new summer clothes—and put the old ones in the cedar chest. Then there’s that pinball machine in the basement no one plays anymore. Someday the grandkids may want it—better hold onto it.
