About Foster Van Lines - Professional Berkeley Movers

About Us

Foster Van Lines was founded in Richmond, California by Howard Foster in 1941. Like many other California moving companies of the time, our business at that point was a very humble cottage-industry, which consisted mainly of transporting furniture and luggage from the Santa Fe and Union Pacific train stations in Richmond to accommodate the burgeoning population. Our services quickly became popular, and we became the top choice amongst Richmond moving companies.

Following the end of World War II, Howard devoted his time to found a premier household goods moving company. As our services grew, so did our service area - we've grown over time from a very local business to a firm which services all 48 contiguous states with major van lines affiliations. We're no longer just Richmond movers or California movers - we provide comprehensive relocation and storage services to families and businesses across the United States.

Foster Van Lines partnered with North American Van Lines to better serve our customers and to provide quality long-distance interstate and international moving services with a van line that is legendary in the industry for customer care and satisfaction. North American Van Lines is the only moving company to hold the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, and it has continuously held that recognition since 1964.

Foster Van Lines is still owned by the Foster family, and we are dedicated to providing consistently high-quality service. Whether you need a local move, a move across the country, or if you just need to store items at our warehouse, don't consider other California moving companies; contact Foster today. You will receive the care and dedication to service that we have learned to provide over the past 65 years in business.
