The crew was amazing and energetic! Randy, Carlos, Octavio, Ernest, and Kaleb made this move a wonder experience and kept our house looking good with their attention to detail and care. I recommend this crew for any job and if you get them you will be blessed with great service.

I’ve done several moves around the world and I have to commend Alpaca Moving and Storage for their excellent work and professionalism. The crew size was actually reflective of the size of my shipment (other moves in the past sent minimal crew) and they were very respectful of the property. They had a system in place that made things move quickly and efficiently. The items that were disassembled at the point of origin were reassembled and reassembled well. If I have to move ever again they will be my first call.

We just wrapped up our best military move in 26 years and APACA was one of the heroes of the effort. Our 15,000lbs of household goods were packed up in Oklahoma City expecting a direct delivery move into a base home but our home was switched while we were on the road and APACA came through as the temporary storage for the five weeks we had to wait until we could move in.We move every two to three years in the military so we know the benefit of a direct delivery move that avoids several more sets of hands associated with loading and unloading to storage and finally on to your home. We were nervous having to add a storage stop to the move but APACA was fantastic from the start helping me collect motorcycles from the shipment that we’d... need for transportation during the unexpected five week wait for a home.They kept in touch over the weeks verifying schedules and on delivery day they arrived as scheduled despite how unpredictable the Air Force gate security process can be. The entire team was professional and careful with our household goods and the home. For the first time in 26 years we had zero broken dishes, glass, or picture frames. Plenty of furniture padding was used resulting in only one noticeable chip on a large heavy dresser which is truly fantastic. We’re realistic and experienced regarding what typically happens on moves with awkward heavy furniture and we were pleasantly surprised at how carefully everything was handled. Our bicycles suffered some scuffs, a few things needed some wiping down to return them to pre-move condition, and a couple extremely fragile aircraft and boat models will need some minor straightforward repairs, but nothing unexpected or unreasonable. Everything that was important to us made it in fantastic shape.Moving is hard and filled with opportunities to break valuable and important things but APACA impressed me so much that when it came time to set up ‘non-temporary storage’ for the furniture that wouldn’t fit in the base home we prioritized them #1 on our wish list to come back. I can wholeheartedly recommend the APACA teams, planning representatives, and leadership that we worked with on this move (Aug 2023) and I will put them #1 on our list when it’s time to leave Albuquerque.Thanks APACA!Chris & Tammyread more

APACA helped move our household when we moved from Albuquerque to Melbourne Australia. The 3 men that arrived on site- Randy Otero and his team (I believe his father and a cousin too) were a DELIGHT! They were so professional, so careful and cautious with our belongings. They packed everything with such detail and care and were very pleasant to talk to. We had a great moving experience! And we are so happy to report that everything arrived in Australia without a scratch or dent, and I am talking big pieces of furniture. Thank you Randy Otero and team!

APACA was assigned to deliver my household goods from storage during my PCS. The crew was on time, professional, and friendly. They were very careful when unloading and placing my goods and worked with me to check off every box that came into the house. No items were broken and the delivery was fast and smooth. Would recommend!

Mr. Dennis was very professional with his crew and the newbies he was training. They had 7k# off in 2hrs with zero incident. Would gladly work with this agency in future. Thank you Ms. Jennifer for all your help on this job.

Cathy provided very clear and timely information regarding my move, Flint and his crew were professional and treated my belongings with care and respect. Couldn’t have asked for a better crew! They made my move easy and stress free. If you’re doing a military move, request them as a preferred company.

So my employer gave me three moving companies they would pay for as part of relocation. I looked up all three, Apaca had the lowest google review so I ignored them. I tried one company - they would say I'll call you right back and I wouldn't hear from them in a week. The second couldn't remember any details of my move from one conversation to the next. Finally, we decided to call Apaca since we were getting nowhere and nothing scheduled with the other companies. Glad we did. Apaca did a fantastic job. At the point in the process we called them, we needed to move fast. They were able to get us scheduled, move an entire house with a hot tub and sauna and a piano heavier then the hot tub. They were professional, extremely courteous. ... They made a very stressful move go very easily. The movers were absolutely fantastic - very grateful to have had them move us. Not sure why there were bad reviews - this is a great company to work more

The only complaint I have is that it took them a few days to get my stuff to my apartment after they received my crates from the trucking company. Otherwise they were great. The crew was very quick and efficient at unloading my stuff and organizing it in my house. They worked late that day to make sure everything was satisfactory. The crew chief was also kind enough to point out to me multiple items that had been damaged by the company that loaded my stuff prior to being shipped. He said he didn't want to hide anything to cover for his or the partner company. I appreciated his honesty and have since made the appropriate insurance claim.Based on my experience with the packing company I'll likely never use a moving company again, but... these guys were indeed the best part of the whole more

This company did their best to get my belongings to me as quickly as possible, despite hang ups with other parties. On moving day, only two men showed up due to the busy season. They worked tirelessly to unload and unwrap my belongings. The communication was great, and they took great care to ensure my satisfaction.

Do Moving Companies in Santa Fe Offer Packing and Unpacking Services?

Many moving companies in Santa Fe recognize the importance of offering comprehensive services to ease the relocation process for their clients. This often includes both packing and unpacking services, catering to those who prefer a more hands-off approach to their move. According to, “A crew will come to your home and unpack your boxes, place your things in closets and cabinets the way you want, and remove all the packing material.” This is a key part of a full-service move, where the moving company handles every aspect of the move from start to finish, allowing clients to focus on other important tasks related to their relocation.

At APACA Moving & Storage, we understand that packing and unpacking can be some of the most stressful parts of moving. That’s why we offer comprehensive packing and unpacking services designed to make your move hands-free and seamless. Our team of packing professionals will arrive at your home or office with the necessary materials a few days before the move to safely pack your belongings.

Once you arrive at your new home, we can also take care of the unpacking, helping you settle into your new space more quickly and efficiently. Chris DiJulio, owner of APACA Moving & Storage, says, “Our packing and unpacking services are customizable, allowing you to choose the level of assistance that best meets your needs and preferences. We’re here to support you during every step of your move, ensuring a seamless transition to your new home.”

Are Moving Companies in Santa Fe Properly Licensed and Insured?

Verifying that your moving company is licensed and insured is crucial for protecting your belongings during the move. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) emphasizes the importance of working with licensed movers, stating in their moving checklist, “Check to determine whether the interstate mover is registered with FMCSA, and has a USDOT number.” Moving with a properly licensed mover protects you from getting scammed by rogue movers. You can verify your mover’s USDOT license number by looking them up in FMCSA’s moving license database.

At APACA Moving & Storage, we take our responsibility to our clients very seriously. We are fully licensed and insured with both the federal and state governments, providing peace of mind that your belongings are in safe hands. APACA operates under our USDOT license (#729519), our Motor Carrier License (MC #333895), and our state license (NMPRC #5590). We hold worker’s comp and general liability insurance to comply with industry standards and protect all parties involved in the move.

What Moving Storage Solutions Do Santa Fe Moving Companies Offer?

Storage solutions are an essential service offered by moving companies, providing a flexible option for clients who need temporary space for their belongings. These solutions can range from short-term storage during a move to long-term options for items that cannot be immediately accommodated in the new location. When looking for a storage facility, look for the following features:

  • Climate Control: Certain items, such as wooden furniture, art, cosmetics, and electronics, can sustain damage when exposed to extreme temperatures. Climate-controlled storage ensures that these items remain in good condition.
  • Pest Control: The last thing you want is mice, insects, or other pests getting to your belongings and possibly damaging them. Make sure you find a storage facility with pest control.
  • 24/7 Surveillance: Safety and security are two of the most important factors while your items are in storage, which is why 24/7 surveillance should be something your storage facility has.

APACA Moving & Storage offers secure, pest-controlled and climate-controlled storage facilities that are perfect for protecting your belongings. Whether you need short-term storage during a move or longer-term solutions, we have 40,000 sq ft of warehouse space under 24/7 surveillance to keep your items protected. In the words of general manager Michael Olmi, “We designed our storage services to provide flexibility and convenience, with options tailored to meet the unique needs of our customers. Whether you’re storing household items, antiques, or sensitive documents, you can trust that your items are safe and well-cared for in our state-of-the-art facilities.” We also have self-storage units for rent as well.

What Types of Insurance and Liability Coverage Do Moving Companies Offer in Santa Fe?

In the moving industry, ‘insurance and liability coverage’ is called ‘moving valuation.’ With every move, the federal government requires moving companies to offer Limited Liability Coverage at no additional charge. As referenced in its name, Limited Liability Coverage doesn’t cover the full value of any damaged or lost items, which is why many moving companies offer a few different moving valuation options. These options are designed to meet the diverse needs and concerns of individuals relocating, ensuring that there’s a suitable level of protection for every type of item being moved.

The most foundational coverage provided by movers is known as Limited Liability Coverage. This option, which comes at no additional charge, offers a basic level of compensation based on the item’s weight rather than its actual value. Under this plan, the reimbursement rate is standardized at 60 cents per pound per item. For example, if a piece of furniture weighing 100 pounds were damaged, the compensation would amount to $60, irrespective of the item’s actual worth.

Full Value Protection presents a comprehensive alternative for those seeking more robust protection. This insurance plan ensures that the moving company is responsible for the full replacement value of any items that are lost or damaged during the move.

This type of coverage is more encompassing, as it considers the actual market value of your belongings, offering to repair, replace, or compensate for items based on their current value. According to the FMCSA, “Under this option, movers are allowed to limit their legal responsibility to loss or damage to items of “extraordinary value,” meaning items that are valued more than $100 per pound (such as jewelry, china, or furs). However, if you specifically list these items on the shipping documents, your mover is still responsible for their safe delivery.”

This list is known as the Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration, which is best for particularly valuable possessions, such as fine art, antiques, or jewelry. This declaration is crucial because it signals the need for special handling and coverage beyond the standard options. Without such declarations, the compensation for these high-value items might not reflect their true worth, potentially leaving you underinsured for these irreplaceable items.

At APACA Moving & Storage, we provide our Santa Fe customers with a selection of moving valuation options, including the basic Limited Liability Coverage, the more comprehensive Full Value Protection, and additional coverage for Items of Extraordinary Value. We encourage our clients to carefully consider these options and select the coverage that best aligns with the value of their belongings and personal needs for security and peace of mind during their move. We aim to deliver a moving experience that meets and exceeds your safety, reliability, and customer care expectations.

When Should I Schedule My Move in Santa Fe?

Scheduling your move in Santa Fe requires consideration of various factors, including weather, availability, and personal timelines, so you should always book your move as soon as possible. According to MoveBuddha, “Movers book up and the best movers won’t have much availability a month or a few weeks before you move. When you start comparing moving company quotes, you want to make sure you book the best mover as soon as you possibly can.”

The moving industry often experiences peak seasons during summer, when demand is highest, so schedules can book up fast. Planning your move in advance can provide more flexibility and ensure that you secure the services of your preferred moving company.

At APACA Moving & Storage, we recommend reaching out as soon as you have a move date in mind. You can request your free moving quote by filling out our free quote form. Our team can help you plan the optimal time for your move, considering factors such as weather conditions in Santa Fe and our availability. By scheduling your move in advance, you can enjoy a smoother, more organized relocation process. However, if you are moving in a month, in a few weeks, or need a last-minute move, we are happy to accommodate you as our schedule allows. We strive to work with our customers’ schedules to the best of our ability, ensuring a stress-free move.

Can Moving Companies Handle Special Items Like Pianos, Antiques, and Fine Art?

Moving special items such as pianos, antiques, and fine art requires expertise and specialized equipment to ensure their safety during transport. These items often have both monetary and sentimental value, making their safe handling a top priority. In the words of APACA Moving & Storage Owner Chris DiJulio, “Specialized movers have the training and equipment necessary to safely move these items, ensuring they arrive at their destination in the same condition they left.”

APACA Moving & Storage specializes in handling special items with the care and expertise they deserve.

How Do Moving Companies Handle Disputes or Claims?

Handling disputes or claims is an essential aspect of a moving company’s customer service. Reputable moving companies have clear procedures for addressing any concerns that may arise during the moving process. If you have a dispute with a moving company, it’s important to file a claim as soon as possible and provide all necessary documentation to support your case. This approach ensures that disputes are resolved fairly and efficiently to achieve a satisfactory outcome for all parties involved.
