Contact the CMSA for a recommendation, www.thecmsa.org

Unfortunately we don't have many reviews of movers in your area, so a member company should be a good choice!

There are some good movers in Fresno (I grew up there)....

There's Valley North American.
Dickey Mayflower
There's also a Bekins agent, but the name escapes me.

Avoid those you aren't familiar with. I think there might be a couple of shady ones there.

peggielou, you indicated cost might be a factor. Given that Bakersfield and Fresno are both cities either developed or grew as a result of being major truck stops along 99, I don't know if ABF You Pack, They Drive might be a choice for you? On the many trips to Fresno and Visalia I've made in my life (I spent just about every summer there when I was younger - and yes it never seemed less than 100 degrees anytime I was there), I remember seeing lots of ABF trucks and trailers making the run along 99.

If that choice isn't available or you just need someone full-service to do your move, I would go with what Big Lee said; I had a family member use Dickey a few years ago to do a move from Visalia to Minnesota and they did great for him.

Know what's funny Jim is that today we had a Dickey driver come in to drop a storage shipment. They do a lot of military from Lemoore down to Pendleton, Seal Beach, and NAS San Diego.

Valley North American normally runs a trip south once a week or so.

not trying to stump for my company, but another option in Fresno is Colonial van and torage of Broadway. But I would reccomend all that were reccomended to you as well as mine, they are all good companies.

Also, I see that Meathead Movers in San Luis Obispo just got another excellent review here - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17047

D, I sort of think SLO might be a bit outside where a mover like Meathead might want to do the move, especially if its only an Intra. It just seems like a lot of windshield time....... but who knows...?
