Hilford Moving and Storage Company
Proudly Serving Homes & Business For 89 Years

Proudly Serving Homes & Business For 89 Years

The legacy of Hilford Moving And Storage began over 89 years ago with the dream of our founder – H.C. Hilford. In 1928, Hilford purchased one of the first trucks available in the town of Ventura to assist with the delivery of furniture from the store that he owned and operated. Over the next several years, he realized that expert moving solutions and trusted Ventura movers were a vital need in this beautiful region, and Hilford Moving And Storage was born.

In 1947, Hilford Moving joined forces with Allied Van Lines, a prestigious name in transportation that also started back in 1928. Over the next several decades, the reputation of our Ventura movers continued to grow as we proudly served homes and business throughout the area, all while still being owned and operated by the Hilford family.

Reliable Long Distance Movers

While times have changed in the decades since H. C. Hilford realized his dream of establishing a premier moving company, our mission has remained the same. By providing unparalleled quality and lasting value for each local and overseas or long distance move, Hilford Moving goes the extra mile to deliver customer-first service that’s backed by the following industry acknowledgments:

  • ProMover certification.
  • Membership in the CMSA.

John C.

I was in a pinch and Hilford came through for me with flying colors. I work selling movie props and was trying to deliver on a huge order. The day before my truck had broken down coming back from a different delivery. The boys at Hilford sprung into action and not only got the crates on their truck quickly. They delivered AHEAD of schedule. In the entertainment business thats outstanding. Thank you Hilford! My new go to.

Great Staff. Knowledgeable

Hilford M&S was a pleasure to work with


After suffering through a very challenging military packup and move across the country, my wife and I were very pleased with the customer service, friendliness, and professionalism of the Hilford Moving And Storage team. From the simple pleasure of having phone calls returned from Inbound shipments, to the incredible flexibility demonstrated by scheduling multiple interim deliveries, to the care and professionalism of the unpacking team, Hilford M&S was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!!

This is the way moving should be


Last week we completed the successful move of my 84 year old father-in-law from Woodland Hills, California to Medford, Oregon. It was a stressful move for him and difficult for us as he was clearly “a saver”. We had called many movers and finally connected with Pete Cresto at Hilford. He was very pleasant and understanding of the difficulties involved with moving a senior from a 28 year residence. He made an estimate and was kind enough to tolerate my father-in-law’s concerns. He was always available for questions and promptly returned our calls. The movers packed everything well and delivered it all in good condition, they were efficient and kind as well as helpful. This is the way moving should be. Our family would recommend Hilford movers for anyone in the LA area and would be happy to speak to anyone about the experience.
