Along with the excitement that can come with getting into a new living situation also comes the inevitable struggle of reorganizing a lifetime worth of belongings and cramming it all into a moving truck. Typically a painstaking process, the bombardment of cardboard and packing tape is enough to drive just about anyone nuts. The convenience of a moving service ultimately makes relocating a much more stress-free occasion, but the wrong company can mean added strife when it comes to running late, hidden fees, or worse, missing or busted valuables. Among Orange County’s sprawling landscape stretching from the Anaheim Hills to the sandy small town charm of San Clemente, these are the movers that will ensure the headaches of a move aren’t something that come along for the ride.

College Hunks Hauling Junk of OC
1201 E Chestnut Ave #L
Santa Ana, CA 92701
(949) 234-6500
www.collegehunkshaulingjunk.com

Now before the uproar starts over the name, there is an acronym here that makes some very real sense – Honest. Uniformed. Nice. Knowledgeable. Students. Employing local college students, CHHJ is ideal for the smaller jobs that might involve more of a purge than relocation. While CHHJ does provide local moving and professional packing, they also arrange donations pickup and drop-offs, as well as junk removal, something most people will run into when it comes time to making the move. Much more of a locally-driven service, CHHJ is the perfect option for patrons looking to stay close and ditch the waste.

Meathead Movers
(949) 485-7883
www.meatheadmovers.com

The tongue-in-cheek moniker of the company originated with brothers Aaron and Evan Steed utilizing their athletic frame to move friends and family during their high school careers for extra cash. As the demand grew, so did the brothers’ vision. Developing a full-service storage and moving company, the Steed Brothers now employ student athletes to fill their trucks – meathead movers and the packing princess team – genius. With pay incentives for employees that report back with no damage and high ratings, in addition to standardized training, not only is the idea a novel one, but the service on both a commercial and residential level remains top notch. Did we mention the movers jog when not carrying items – not kidding.

In truth, there is something especially comforting about a company that is still family owned and operated, especially when it comes to something as intimate as moving your belongings. Servicing the great OC area for over 25 years, Monster Moving has the kind of personable approach that ensures both big moves and smaller jobs are handled by a smiling face you can put to name, quote, and email address. The flexibility of being family-owned also means some wiggle room when it comes to the price. Stellar user ratings and all the proper insurance make Monster a bit of a no brainer when it comes to moving in Orange County.
