Translated from Spanish, Los Gatos means “the cats.” We think it’s one of the coolest city names anywhere, or at least one of the cutest. The city isn’t named after our cute little house cats, though. It’s named for the bobcats and cougars that used to (and still do) frequent the mountainous area.
The cool thing about Los Gatos is that you can live among nature and still have an easy commute to Silicon Valley, San Jose and San Francisco. It’s no surprise that homes in Los Gatos average around $2 million. It’s also no surprise that its list of current and former residents reads like a Who’s Who of the Bay Area.
How long has Ace Moving been working in Los Gatos?
At Ace Moving, you can definitely say we know Los Gatos well. We’ve been moving people to and from the city since 1984. There aren’t very many moving companies that can say that. We remember when Los Gatos was just a small town in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We also remember Silicon Valley before it was the epicenter of the technological world.
What can Ace Moving do for people in Los Gatos?
Our Los Gatos customers have a lot going on in their lives. They’ve worked hard for everything they own and they don’t have a lot of time to pack and prepare for their moves. That’s where Ace Moving comes in. We offer a wide array of moving services specifically designed for our Los Gatos moving customers.
At Ace Moving, we are experienced at moving precious artwork, antiques and even wine collections. We’re expert packers. We can even help you get settled into your new place.
What areas does Ace Moving cover?
Ace Moving is and always has been a local mover. Of course that means we move anywhere within Los Gatos, the Bay Area, California and our neighboring states of Nevada, Oregon and Arizona.
Why doesn’t Ace Moving move to other states?
We’ll let you in on a little secret. Most moving companies don’t move to other states. Let us explain. Local moving and long-distance moving are two very different things. Most moving companies claim to do both, but the truth is that for almost every one of them, including the big major van lines, long-distance moves are subcontracted.
Now, there’s nothing inherently wrong with subcontracting, but that’s not the way we choose to do business. Ace Moving only covers the areas we can travel to without subcontracting. We can’t say for sure, but we think that’s one of the reasons why our customers highly recommend us, almost across the board. Of course, it could also be due to our world-class customer service.
How big is Ace Moving?
Ace Moving is small and we’re proud of it. Too many things can go wrong when a moving company gets too big. Instead, we want to stay manageable. We like that the owner knows our customers’ names. We like that our customers stop and say “hi” when they see us in a grocery store or on a hike through the mountains. We like that most of our business comes from referrals and repeat business.
Is it safe to move during COVID-19?
Moving has been considered an essential service since the start of the pandemic. While many moving companies were trying to figure everything out, we kept ourselves up to date on all the recommendations, including proper masking, wearing gloves and proper hygiene. If one of our movers even has a sniffle, they’re told to stay home. We take our customers’ health and safety very seriously.
Does Ace Moving offer any other services?
If your home is on the market and you need to remove your furniture, or if your new place isn’t ready once you move, Ace Moving has a spotless storage warehouse. Unlike with self-storage, we do all the work, including inventorying everything and keeping protective wrapping on all your furniture. Best yet, unlike self-storage, you only pay for the space you need.
