Meet the Team
Brian Thorstensen – General Manger, Bekins A-1 of Livermore
Welcome to our Livermore family! We make it our business to provide superior moving solutions worldwide that exceed our customers’ expectations. With more than 100 years of combined industry experience, we can handle every moving or storage situation with confidence. If long or short-term storage is on your list of needs, you should know we have the largest storage vaults of any company in the area. Our vaults hold 1500 – 1800lbs instead of the usual 1000 – 1200lbs. This allows us to save customers money in addition to providing a great storage service since they can fit more per vault.
I work in a very unique industry, moving not just objects, but people’s entire lives. During what is often a stressful, emotional or worrisome move, it is my job to make sure the expectations of our customers are met and exceeded. It’s not about competing with others, it’s about being the best you can be. If you execute, given the opportunities available, you can succeed and grow.
No matter how big or small your move is, we have the skills to make it a success. Give our team a call today to find out exactly how we can help you. You can also contact one of our moving consultants directly by clicking on their name.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to do anything before the movers arrive?
If you have decided not to use our packing services, all items must be packed and ready to go before we arrive. Since the loading process can be a bit hectic and involve a lot of people and open doors, we recommend making arrangements for young children in pets. Since every move is unique, there may be a few other things you need to prepare. Be sure to ask your moving consultant about any other tasks that must be done before moving day.
What time will the movers arrive?
The time movers will arrive is customizable to your needs. Your consultant will let you know the times movers are available and do what they can to work with your schedule.
Do you have a security system in your storage facility?
Yes. Our facility is equipped with state of the art security equipment.
What happens if my new home isn’t ready?
We highly recommend your new home be ready to receive delivery during the agreed upon delivery spread. If you find out before your shipment arrives that your home will not be ready, call us right away. More than likely, we will be able to store the items until your new home is ready, but this may come with extra costs. A new delivery spread will also have to be established.
What do I do if I find something damaged?
Damage is rare but it can happen. If you have purchased a valuation plan as part of your move, you can file a claim with us to inspect the damage. If you do not have a valuation plan, your homeowner’s insurance might cover the costs. Be sure to look into both valuation and homeowner’s insurance before you mover. Not every home insurance plan covers moving damage.
Can I pack and move my plants?
Anyone who has ever owned a houseplant knows that they matter almost as much as a small pet. You’ve raised your houseplants, and in some cases, they may be valuable. You might depend on your window box herb garden, for example, or you might have a hanging tomato plant that you love.
Although we at myBekins do not move houseplants, you do not have to get rid of your houseplants just because you’re moving. You can pack your plants and move them yourself. We don’t move houseplants, because they cause a mess and damage other items in the truck.
If you don’t want to move your houseplants, consider giving them to a trusted friend or a retirement home. Your friend might appreciate the foliage, and retirement homes are always looking for great ways to brighten up their rooms.
