We are a Interior Design Company in Stuart Florida and we had a job in Napa and I can say this was the best experience with the Turner Team.

I called Turner Moving and Storage to move two heavy large electric recliners from family room to the living room.

Turner M&S has moved me multiple times in the last 30 plus years. They have always made the moves as easy as possible. The same was true with my... last move a week ago. All contacts with their employees were very positive. On moving day, the movers arrived a bit early and all were personable and professional. The move out was done rapidly. The move in was much more complicated. It involved the third floor and relatively narrow stair wells. They managed to get everything in safely and damage free while remaining positive in attitude. Their efforts were greatly appreciated. If possible, I would always userTurner for any moving needs!read more

We sold our home of 44 years in Napa to move near family in Virginia. Our new home is under construction so Turner is storing our belongings until... they arrange shipment across country.Everyone at Turner, from the estimator, through the office team to the packing/moving team were extremely professional and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Turner team and highly recommend them.Our new Virginia home has now been completed and our belongings delivered after they were stored for 6 months to Richmond Virginia by their driver Pete. He was as friendly and professional as the rest of the Turner team. They made a difficult cross-country move much easier!read more

The whole procss with Turner Moving & Storage has been smooth as silk! First an appraiser came to the house to see what we would be moving and a date... was scheduled. Because our new home was not yet ready to move into, Turner Moving worked with us to change our plan and arranged to store our items until a later date.On moving day, Brandon, Russ, Juan and Abraham arrived on time with the moving vans. They walked through the house with me for an overview on what to pack and what not to pack, then they got busy! It was amazing to watch them work! They were all so pleasant and, if they were unsure about something, they came to me and asked for verification, something that I greatly appreciated!The first day was packing boxes. The next day the trucks were loaded. The guys went the extra mile by loading up the outdoor furniture in the back of the truck and delivering it to the new house where they carried it UP all the stairs and placed it around the pool! In my opinion they went above and beyond and they were so wonderful to work with!Everyone was just wonderful to work with and incredibly responsive, (Joel who came out to do the estimate, Shalyn who handles the office and communication and all the movers), and I am so happy that we chose Turner Moving and Storage to handle our move!read more

I was so nervous when planning my whole house move completely across the country. I had done so once before with another well-known company and had a... very bad experience where my belongings were 6 weeks late and showed up severely damaged. The crew at Turner moving put me right at ease. Even when adding my vehicle for transport, at the very last minute, I was told it wasn't a problem and the company quickly accommodated my request. Kudos to Shalyn who was very professional, organized and efficient when orchestrating and coordinating my long-distance move. And, Randy, who sold me on the company, answering all of my numerous questions, and then assisted in packing my belongings. He was very detailed and took great care when packing, even building custom boxes for some of my belongings. The moving crew was amazing! Brandon, Juan and Adrian showed up exactly at the prearranged time, and presented as very professional and courteous. I was confident in their abilities right away with the care they showed to my home and belongings when moving my things to the Turner warehouse (reflected the company as a whole as it was amazingly clean, neat and organized). Pete, the driver was in contact with me the whole way as after he picked up my belongings from storage and transported them across the county. He actually showed up exactly on the day and time that he had communicated to me and gave me plenty of advanced notice so I could well-prepare. Pete also took care as he supervised the final delivery of my belongings to my home. Overall, the entire crew was professional, detailed and communicated very well. The entire move went smoothly without any issues. I would not hesitate to call this crew again, in a second, if I had to do it all over. Thank you!read more

Turner moving was a joy to work with from the start. Advice given on the first visit when we obtained the estimate was so helpful. Their pricing... was in line with interstate movers, and I believe a more accurate estimate than others we obtained. I would also have used them for a local move, since their systems ensured no loss of our goods and was organized and efficient.Shalyn, who supported us from the office during each phase, is an angel. Every question, change in schedule, scheduling, etc, was handled so professionally but also in a supportive manner. Doing a move during the pandemic is difficult, but they made it as easy as possible.We moved from Calif. to Colorado and put our items in storage there with a local company. Shalyn continued to support us even 10 mo after the move and out of storage. I can not rate them highly enough for their work and personally want to thank them publicly for all their many more

They keep raising the bar... I have worked with Turner before and have never been disappointed. However, this last time we worked with Turner, the... crew's "outside the box" thinking to get the job done exceeded our expectations. Thank you Turner for making the stressful, less so, and taking such care in your work with a great attitude (and a sense of humor). Randy, the owner is great to work with - he never over promises what they can do or puts his staff in a bad position.

A big move. Lots of stuff. Very anxious about it.A friend who had recently moved recommended Turner. I'm so glad he did.Easy to work with.... Patient. Informative. Explained things well in terms I could understand. Shalyn was the best!The estimate was spot on (the actual cost came in a little less than the estimate).The packing crew was there two days. Efficient, friendly, guys. Very pleased.Likewise, the loading crew. They loaded the truck in 3 hours. Scott, our driver, was great as well.They also transported one of our cars.Our stuff is in storage in Albuquerque right now (though we picked up the car), as the house we bought here is not finished and we're in a furnished rental. I hope the Albuquerque company is as good as Turner when they deliver our goods!Highly recommended.And worth every penny!read more

Turner moving and storage was selected as our staging warehouse and logistics provider for a product line show we did in the napa area, and they were... amazing to work with. We had last minute deliveries with no head's up, and we were concerned that we would not have the products in time. Turner, however, preemptively suggested a solution where they would send a truck to pick up the units from the local carrier depot and were able to deliver our products on time! They went far above and beyond their requirements, and better yet, they did it with a smile on their face; I've worked with a lot of logistics companies before, and Turner has been one of the most satisfying and pleasant to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will absolutely be using them again for any future projects in this region. Thank you, shalyn and the entire team!!!read more

Well, where do I start? As my husband and I continue to unpack our precious items, I'm finding broken items. Did we pack it? Yes, and did one hell of... a job and spent a lot of money on newsprint, bubble wrap, and air pillows. Not to mention used ALL of our blankets, pillows for even more extra protection because we moved out of state so we wanted everything to make it safely. I believe this all happened during the packing because we we're sharing the truck with another family going to Montana which we didn't even know about except by over hearing a conversation. They did even get a price cut for sharing the truck or ever a straight answer when we inquired about it. The cost for the whole move was over 12,000.00 dollars. Anyway, back to the loading of the truck. Alot of our stuff was marked up and boxes smashed or busted up. Yes, we signed the completed paperwork but you really DONT see much until you start unpacking. Longer story short...they crammed our things in and many things were damaged or destroyed. Scott, he was good but your packers are not. For 12,000.00 should have been better AND should have gotten a price cut for sharing the truck with another family. PLEASE BEWARE!!!!read more

Custom Crating in Napa Valley

Moving for the First Time?

When you request a free estimate for moving and storage, an estimator from your moving company will do an in-home or virtual survey of everything you need to be moved and stored. During this survey, the estimator will ask you about custom crating if they see you have items that require it. The estimator will take measurements of it during the survey, if in person, or they will schedule a time with you to take measurements. On your moving day, they will bring them to your home to pack them up to keep your items safe during the move. The crates will be anchored in the air-cushioned moving trucks during transit to further ensure the safety of your items. If you just need warehouse storage, your moving crew will pack your items in the crates in the warehouse, where they will stay in storage for safekeeping. Our moving team knows that custom crates contain extremely valuable items, so they will always handle them carefully when loading and unloading. Once your items are taken out of storage and delivered to your home or office, you will get to keep your custom crates for any future, in case you need them for a future move.

What Is Custom Crating and Why Is It Important?

Custom crating involves crafting boxes or crates tailored to fit specific items with unique shapes, dimensions, or fragility. It’s a method that ensures valuable and distinct items remain unharmed during transit and while in storage. In a world of standardized solutions, custom crating brings personalization to the forefront of moving.

At Turner Moving & Storage, we see custom crating as a necessity for items like statues and fine art. As a family-run enterprise, we recognize the importance of each item, not just in monetary value but in sentimental worth. Our commitment is not merely about transporting and storing your items but ensuring your memories, legacies, and treasures stay safe throughout the moving and storing process.

How Is Custom Crating Different From Standard Packing?

Standard packing typically involves using generic boxes meant to fit various items. On the other hand, custom crating involves designing and creating containers based on each item’s specific dimensions and characteristics. This ensures a safe fit and drastically reduces risks associated with internal movement during transit and while in storage. It’s the difference between a ready-made suit and one tailored to fit perfectly.

For us at Turner Moving & Storage, standard isn’t always sufficient. We understand the vulnerabilities of unique items during a move. Our team is trained to recognize when an item needs more than just a standard box, and we know how to create them to best protect your items. We bring expertise, experience, and care to ensure every item gets the specialized attention it deserves.

What Materials Are Typically Used in Custom Crating?

Various materials can be chosen for custom crating, but wood remains a favorite among many in the industry. Wood offers strength, flexibility, and durability. Its adaptability makes it ideal for crafting containers for items of various shapes and sizes. Moreover, wood provides a robust barrier against external factors during transportation, keeping your specialty items safe and secure.

At Turner Moving & Storage, we trust the time-tested reliability of wood. Our choice reflects our dedication to offering the utmost protection for your belongings. When customers entrust their valuable items with us, they can be confident that they are shielded in a resilient and durable material. Our commitment is to provide safety, and we can do that with the skill of our custom crating experts.

How Does Custom Crating Ensure the Safety of Delicate Items?

The primary advantage of custom crating is its precise fit. By crafting a crate tailored to an item, the risk of internal movement is significantly reduced. This snug fit, combined with cushioning and sturdy materials, creates a fortress of protection. Delicate items, whether antique, artistic, or sentimental, are safe and secure within these expertly packed custom confines.

At Turner Moving & Storage, we believe every item tells a story. Our approach to custom crating revolves around preserving these stories. We take the time to understand the specific needs of each item and craft crates that offer optimal protection. No item is too delicate or unique for our custom crating, and it will be properly protected in one of our custom crates.

How Much Does Custom Crating Typically Cost?

Custom crating is a tailored service that usually comes at a premium compared to standard packing. Costs can vary based on the design intricacy, materials used, and crate size. While it might be an added expense, the protection and peace of mind it offers often justify the investment, especially for irreplaceable items.

At Turner Moving & Storage, we prioritize transparency in all dealings. Although custom crating can be a bit pricey, it’s the only way to go when moving and storing valuable items. We believe our customers should always be in the loop about potential costs, which is why we offer free estimates. This way, you will know all the costs before you sign on to do custom crating with us. To get your free custom crating estimate today, fill out our Free Estimate Form or give us a call at (707) 255-8600.

What Items Are Recommended for Custom Crating?

Certain items require custom crating to ensure their safety throughout the moving and storage process. These items include statues, large glass or marble table tops, taxidermy pieces, fine art, and select furniture pieces. Given their fragility or unique dimensions, items like those listed above are best protected in custom-designed enclosures. Custom crating is not a luxury for these bulkier specialty items but a necessity.

With nearly 75 years of service in Napa Valley, Turner Moving & Storage has seen and transported a vast array of items. Our experience and expertise guide our recommendations on what items need custom crates. We’ve witnessed the tangible benefits of custom crating, particularly for high-value or fragile belongings such as large brass statues, and we always advocate their use when the item demands unparalleled protection.

How Can I Determine the Right Size and Design for My Crate?

Crafting the perfect crate for an item requires expertise. Professionals measure the item, gauge its vulnerability, and then design the crate to ensure optimal protection. It’s a blend of technical know-how and experience, ensuring items are shielded during transit and while in storage.

When you choose to get custom crates with Turner Moving & Storage, you’re choosing peace of mind. We eliminate the guesswork from the crating process, so you can rest easy knowing your items are well cared for. Our seasoned team takes on the responsibility of measurements, design, and crafting, ensuring your belongings receive the best protective housing tailored to their unique needs.

Are There Environmental or Sustainable Options for Custom Crating?

The push for sustainability is reshaping many industries, including moving and packing. Many companies now explore sustainable custom crating options, incorporating recycled materials or creating reusable designs. These green alternatives provide the same level of protection while minimizing environmental impact.

Turner Moving & Storage is fully onboard with sustainable practices. While we never compromise on the safety of your items, we use wood to build our crates. This way, they are long-lasting, so you can reuse them after you are done moving and storing your items. Our custom crates can also be used and reused as shipping crates if needed. We’re proud to offer crating solutions that protect both your belongings and the planet.

How Long Does the Custom Crating Process Usually Take?

The duration of the crating process varies based on the item’s complexity. Some items can be quickly encased, while others, requiring more detailed design and attention, might need more time. The custom crating process usually takes about a week or two, as creating them is a detailed process ensuring the crates will keep your items safe.

With Turner Moving & Storage, every item, big or small, gets our full attention. While crafting times can differ based on the item’s needs, we recommend requesting a free estimate by filling out our Estimate Form on our website. We will provide you with a personalized timeline in your estimate so you know your estimated timeline before deciding to use Turner for custom crating. Our commitment is to offer timely services without compromising on quality.
