From Our Website

We were introduced to Irish Express by our best friends who have used the company no less than 5 times in the last 3 years. So, I had seen their work at my friend's moves and though to give them a call for our move. Their quotes are reasonable true to the actual cost. John, Ailish and all the guys are pleasant and hardworking (plus, you gotta love those Irish accents!). The entire team is responsive, professional and quick. We have used Irish twice now, once in May 2011 when my partner and I consolidated our two Santa Clara apartments and moved in together to a new apartment in Redwood City and more recently when we bought our house and moved from Redwood City back down to San Jose.


If you are planning to do the packing yourself, you should have everything packed and ready by the morning of the move. We can always provide a packer at short notice and packing supplies are always on our trucks for any last minute emergencies. Some cities, in particular San Francisco, have strict guidelines when it comes to the parking of moving trucks. If parking Permits are needed, they can be obtained from the SFMTA. We can help get the necessary Permits or advise you on how to obtain one.


Friends, Family & Co-Workers who have used a Moving Company can point you in the right direction. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is one of the most highly respected agencies of its kind. Parents Clubs and similar organizations are always helpful in referring service companies.


3. Clothing can be left in dresser drawers, but please ensure that there are no breakable items in the drawers. 4. Two-drawer file cabinets can remain full but all lateral file cabinets should be emptied as should desk drawers. 5. Cushions, pillows, bedding etc should be packed in large boxes or heavy duty plastic bags. If there are any fragile items packed, please ensure the box is visibly marked 'FRAGILE' for our movers to see. All lamp shades should be boxed. If you do not wish to box them we recommend that you move them yourself or have our movers pack them for you.
