San Francisco Movers| San Francisco Moving Company | AMS Bekins

Moving San Francisco residents and businesses since 1949

San Francisco is undeniably among the most picturesque, charming, romantic cities in the world. As scenic and enchanting as San Francisco’s hilly streets and colorful neighborhoods are, the terrain and narrow streets present formidable obstacles for moving companies that are not properly prepared. But AMS Bekins is up to the challenge. Established in the San Francisco Bay Area more than 60 years ago, AMS Bekins moving vans have been around the block in San Francisco more than a few times. We know how to maneuver in and out of tight spots. Our moving and storage personnel are not at all intimidated by inclines and downgrades.

Throughout the years, we’ve helped clients in all of the city’s neighborhoods, including Hunters Point, Bayview, Bernal Heights, Ingleside, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, the Mission District, North Beach, Laurel Heights, Ocean View, Portola, Presidio Heights, Russian Hill, the Richmond District, Golden Gate Heights, The Castro, South Beach and the Sunset District. AMS Bekins knows and loves San Francisco. We’re also intimately familiar with the nearby San Mateo County communities of Daly City, Colma, Serramonte, Westborough, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae.

AMS Bekins is a family-owned business in which four generations of our family of movers have been involved. We understand that a move is a big undertaking that can be stressful. At AMS Bekins, our goal is to reduce stress as much as possible by making the process go as smoothly as possible.

Along with an A-Plus rating from the Better Business Bureau, AMS Bekins is one of only four moving and storage companies in the San Francisco and peninsula areas that have earned prestigious Diamond Certified status. Diamond Certification, administered by American Ratings Corporation, recognizes AMS Bekins’ exceptionally high customer satisfaction rankings, determined through independent customer surveys. Only companies that attain a customer satisfaction of greater than 90 on a 0-to-100 scale and pass all other American Ratings Corporation criteria earn Diamond Certified designation. Diamond Certification is backed by a performance guarantee that gives extra assurance to our customers.

AMS Bekins is well-equipped to meet the needs not only of San Francisco residents but also of business owners. Our well-trained professional crews have experience with a broad spectrum of business and public-sector clients who entrusted us with moving the contents of commercial and government offices, as well as retail businesses, and manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facilities. Those businesses and government agencies chose AMS Bekins because of our proven track record of efficiency, completing moves within budget and on schedule, thereby minimizing downtime and enabling a smooth transition to the destination – whether it’s elsewhere in San Francisco, elsewhere in the state, across the country or in another country.

AMS Bekins can work side-by-side with you throughout the relocation process. We can help you develop a strategy for your move, we can expertly pack your belongings if you wish, and if you want additional help, our crew can even unpack your possessions at your destination.

To complement our moving services, we have an exceptional storage facility in which businesses as well as families have placed their trust. Faculty members while traveling on sabbatical leave and employees assigned overseas for extended periods have placed their possessions in storage with us while they’re gone, knowing that we’d keep their materials safe in our modern, clean, 60,000-square-foot storage warehouse. Businesses also contract with AMS Bekins for long-term storage of financial records and other documents. We may be able to offer a discount on storage fees for you in combination with a move. Each client is assigned dedicated storage vaults in our warehouse, which is equipped with security alarm and fire protection systems. Take a look at the storage facilities of other moving companies so you can comparatively judge the excellence of ours for yourself. Stop by unannounced any weekday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and we’ll be happy to show you around. No appointment is necessary.

AMS Bekins is among San Francisco’s top moving companies for important reasons – our integrity, our reliability and our affordability. We have an outstanding record of safety, and of safeguarding the precious possessions of our clients. We have won more awards from the Bekins national headquarters than any other Bekins agent in the nation during the past 30 years. Whether you’re moving to, from or within San Francisco, AMS Bekins moving services will deliver for you.
