Santa Barbara County Movers

An arrow pointing to the county of Santa Barbara on a map of California with an athletic Meathead Mover standing happily next to the state. From Hollywood movie stars to former presidents to land-grant ranchers, the pastoral sophistication of Santa Barbara County appeals to nearly everyone, even us movers! Meathead Movers first became part of Santa Barbara County in 2002 when we opened up a dispatch center for our moving crews in Santa Maria. We were warmly welcomed into the community, and quickly came to love the entire county, from the authentic, mouthwatering Mexican food in Guadalupe to lemon drops at Lucky’s in Montecito!

It’s not typical to have a county where you can go from champagne brunch at the Santa Barbara Biltmore to a hometown rodeo at the Santa Maria Elks Lodge in one afternoon. This juxtaposition of communities is never more clear than when you are a professional mover. We’ve done thousands of moves in Santa Barbara County, so we’ve been able to clearly see the range of opportunities and lifestyles this county offers.

In Northern Santa Barbara County, we have the opportunity to do some of the most touching and fun moves. With over 1,500 families living at Vandenberg Air Force Base–or as the residents like to call it “Vandyland”–we help military families with their relocations. The cities of Santa Maria and Orcutt attract many young families due to reasonable home prices and new city developments, while still maintaining a “small town” feel. We move many families into their first homes, and it’s always such an honor to be trusted to be right by our clients’ sides during their move to their first home. It’s not unusual for those moves to end with a round of hugs–priceless!

Did you ever think moving could be described as glamourous? Well, it can be when you are doing moves on the American Riviera. The sprawling estates of Montecito and the beachfront manors of Hope Ranch have all been moved by Meathead Movers. Our student-athlete movers are just as at home on imported marble floors as they are on sport courts.

From the Santa Barbara Bowl, to the Santa Maria Speedway, to the University of California Santa Barbara, to the Fire Academy at Allan Hancock, Santa Barbara County has so much to offer. Whether you are choosing the down home feel of Northern Santa Barbara County or the breezy sophistication of Southern Santa Barbara County, we’re here to support you along the way. Our services range from local movinglong distance movingpacking and even on-site moving, to rearranging your home/office or loading rental trucks. We know moving is stressful, but it’s our job to ease your transition. We look forward to moving you!

We have been revolutionizing the moving industry since 1997.  When you entrust your move to Meathead, you can rest assured that your move will be a success because our professionally trained student-athlete movers are the best movers the industry has to offer.

Local Residential Move from Santa Barbara to Santa Barbara


You could improve by hiring an authorized/certified pest control official who can distinguish the difference between bed bug and a carpet beetle. The photo they sent was taken through the plastic covering the bed frame and the fabric on which the dead insect was seen.

The two movers were exceptional! Professional, strong and organized. My diagnosis of the insects on my box springs was and is the issue. Was so shocked when Chris and Jonathan pointed out the “critters” on the box spring of my bed, saying that I have bedbugs and my bed could not be moved. That was a total shock to me. What was I to do?

The team captain said it was company policy to not put any bed bug infested mattress in the truck. Totally understandable.

However, I have since found out that these insects were incorrectly identified. None of us really knew what they were so based on that incorrect assumption, I am now sleeping on my mattress on the floor and that is only because luckily none of us saw any insects my mattress so we assumed it was not infected with insects, they were able to move it into my new home.

Was so utterly shocked by the news when they first told me, I contacted our building manager who asked if I had been bitten, answer: no. Were they alive? answer: no. That should have been a clue right there that these were not bed bugs. The insects also were not found on my mattress…another clue.

On top of exhaustion, was so paralyzed mentally, emotionally and physically by the situation that I could not think further that just getting this move done…and went on making light of the situation as a way to handle the shock of the fact I would be on my own to deal with this…what was I to do next?

We were all ignorant of the difference of the bed bug and carpet beetle And my entire bed could have been moved along with the frame if a professional had been there to identify the insects and let us all know what harm they would or would not do. This move has been highly stressful for me. I am a 78 year old senior moving out of an apartment I lived in for 28 years. Your company already knows the stresses involved. I basically was left high and dry…..with the expensive mattress on the floor, expensive box spring on the street and frame in my apartment.

The stress of this has not only affected me, but those around me because of the thought of a bed bug infestation.

The pest control company referred by my building manager, The Ratman, Steve. (on Face Book, 805-451-7287) identified them as carpet beetles.

The box spring and frame are back at my apartment. I would appreciate if you would move them to my new apartment as soon as possible. If you take care of this, it will then be a 10 on your scoreboard with a glowing review of how you go above and beyond.

Mathias and Quincy were awesome. They were able to get most of my possessions into the pod. I am so thankful that my friend recommended your company to me. Besides the water and cold coffee I offered them, I wish that my $$ tip to each of them could have been more. I feel so blessed that they were sent to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
