In 1928 H. C. Hilford owned and operated a furniture store in Ventura to deliver the furniture he sold, he purchased a truck, one of the few in town. His customers frequently borrowed the truck when they moved, leading to his conclusion that a moving business was the way to go. Hilford Moving and Storage Truck Ventura CA

During the 1930s, the primary business was the store, but the moving business slowly grew. In 1947, Hilford Moving & Storage became an agent for Allied Van Lines, the leader in the national and worldwide moving industry, who, as a matter of interest, was also founded in 1928.

In 1951 daughter Helen and husband Don Christensen purchased the business which owned three trucks operating from a rented facility. In 1966 steady growth resulted in the construction of a modern warehouse facility on Arundell Avenue to take advantage of the most progressive warehouse operations known at the time-most of which are still practiced today. Unfortunately, Donald Christensen passed away on September 3, 1980, leaving Helen as sole stockholder. Under her guidance the company's growth continued, leading to the construction of an additional warehouse unit adjacent to its Arundell Avenue location. Helen's daughter Sally is managing the company today.

Hilford presently operates 34 units, including tractors, trailer, flatbeds, bobtails, specialty units and service vehicles, all manned by crews with years of experience in the moving industry. Its service include:

  • Local and intrastate moving of households.
  • Interstate and worldwide moving through Allied Van Lines and Allied International
