Serving Metro Los Angeles Since 1964
Walsh is a family-owned full-service moving company.
We’ve operated out of the same building in Torrance, CA, since 1964. More recently, the company expanded to a second
warehouse location in Long Beach.
Local moving within metro Los Angeles is the heart of our business. Less frequently, we handle long-distance moves:
from Southern California to anywhere in the contiguous USA.
Walsh Core Services
- Residential moves within 40 miles of Torrance, Long Beach, and Los Angeles.
- Commercial relocation within the LA area.
- In-house or in-office moves while buildings are being repaired or renovated.
- Short-term vault and trailer storage.
- Professional packing services.
- Furniture moving, including extra-large furniture and pianos.
They Say They’re Local, But Are They?
Some so-called “local” moving companies are, in fact, national chains with local franchises. They have a local
presence but answer to a national corporate parent.
A good portion of their revenue leaves the local economy when you pay the bill. A percentage of their workforce may
live out of state.
Despite the well-publicized California exodus, most Southern Californians, when they move, aren’t leaving the state.
They’re not going from Downey to Texas. They’re moving from Downey to another address in Downey.
We’ll move you to Texas if that’s where you’re heading, but we’re betting that when you call us, it will be to:
- Move from an apartment in Downey to another apartment in Downey.
- Move from an apartment in Downey to a house in Downey you just purchased.
- Move from a house in Downey to a bigger residence in a nearby city.
- Move from a house in Downey to a nearby retirement community.
In our experience, most moves occur close to home.
Small business relocations, especially, tend to be hyper-localized. As a matter of survival, retail stores,
restaurants, and professional practices must remain within shouting distance of their customer base.

Walsh Moving Services in Downey: The Expanded Edition
Most of our moving business stays within metro Los Angeles, in cities like Downey. Our goal is to provide the
best possible moving service at a fair price. Local moves close to our warehouses are the service we deliver most
Local moves can be apartment to apartment, house to house, city to nearby city, or they may simply be a matter of
reorganizing furniture within a building.
Companies outgrow their space. They downsize to remain competitive. They search for a better location or a more
favorable lease and city tax code.
The movers you hire should be able to adjust to your business schedule and avoid significant disruptions. They should
recognize when it’s appropriate to remove supplies, furniture, and equipment and when it’s not.
At Walsh Moving, we plan your move in detail before we send out the first truck.
Short-Term Vault & Trailer Storage
Short-term vault and trailer storage are fundamentally different from self-storage in standard facilities. Access is
limited. Storage is more secure.
No hoarder would ever consider vault or trailer storage, short-term solutions for movers whose permanent living or
business space isn’t quite ready for occupancy.
Normally, short-term storage is included in your moving estimate and not extended as a separate service. But if you
need to store a sofa or piano for a while, or if you need storage at a moment’s notice, we can do that, too.
Professional Packing Services
Walsh moving professionals are trained to handle your things with care. But if anything does break during packing and
moving, we’ll reimburse you. Professional movers are licensed and insured. Any damage is covered.
When it comes to boxing breakables, antiques, and family heirlooms, it pays to have someone experienced on the job.
Not every professional move involves a truck. In-home and in-office moves are a big part of our business at Walsh,
where boxes and furniture may not even leave the building.
It sounds so easy. You’re just rearranging a few things around the house or office, right?
The task is much easier for Walsh movers than for the average person. Plus, Walsh professional movers are insured.
Not just for any injuries sustained (and they’re far less likely to get hurt than you), but for any damage to your
Okay, now we’re no longer strictly local, but if you live in Downey and plan to move across state lines, call us
and let’s talk. Our primary long-distance service area is the Western USA, but we’ve hauled trailers from Southern
California as far as New England.
Downey to Texas? Not a problem.
Downey to Bakersfield or the Bay Area? We do it all the time.
