Our Shafter movers want to welcome you to this cool little town sitting in Kern County just 18 miles northwest of Bakersfield. Shafter is known for its agriculture, however, its museums also make it a great spot for history buffs.

The city was named after a General involved in the Spanish-American War and is home to Minter Field, also known as Shafter Airport, which was utilized in World War II. About 7,000 troops were stationed there during the war and it held up to 600 prisoners of war. A Minter Field museum resides there today, among other historical sites.

The Green Hotel is the city’s first commercial building and resembles the bungalow-style that emerged around that time. Shafter’s Depot Museum preserves the history of the railways that took passengers throughout the country. Both structures are part of the National Register of Historic Places and make for great sight-seeing on the weekends. In more recent history, swimmer and city native Larsen Jensen became a two-time Olympic medalist in the 2000’s.

Local Move in Bakersfield

They arrived on time. Both gentleman were polite. I would recommend they come with proper tools when they know they’re moving refrigerators! Also, caution when moving refrigerators thru doorways to avoid slamming doors into walls. I’d recommend them to friends.

John F.

Local Move in Bakersfield

I can honestly say that I loved the entire process, from beginning to end. Everything was explained during the quoting process. I also received plenty of notifications and reminders before the move. I was contacted the day of the move and the movers arrived at exactly 9:45, the time promised. One of the best experiences I’ve had when it comes to service, not just with a moving company either.
