Our Team

Elliot Helm, Owner & Operator

Elliot started working in the moving industry back in 2012. He worked side-by-side with the moving company owner, who taught him everything he knows about ensuring the safety of each move not only for all the belongings, but also for the people involved in the process. His mentor passed down his attention to detail not only for boxing, wrapping, and padding all the homeowner’s belongings—no matter how big or small—but also for ways to remove the stress of moving from the customers’ shoulders. Through communication and consistent safe practices, smooth moves can be achieved.

After 5 years of learning the moving trade, Elliot went into business for himself, opening the doors of Sterling Interstate in early 2017. Since establishing Sterling Interstate, he has assembled experienced personnel who also care about what they do.

Our Services

Our efficient and professional staff are trained in how to properly pack boxes and load a truck to ensure your furniture is safe for transport. We provide the following services:

  • Packing
  • Loading
  • Transportation
  • Unloading

A binding estimate is given upon completion of a walk through. That means there are no hidden fees or charges and a breakdown of the price can be produced upon request.

Unlike some moving companies, we dedicate the same experienced mover(s) to handle your move from start to finish. What that means: By dedicating a mover to every load we prevent misplaced blame in the event of an accident so we can swiftly make things right with the customer. We understand that we are first and foremost in the customer service industry. We strive to earn your positive reviews and continued business.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

  •   These guys are amazing! They showed up on time (a little early, in fact) and were ready to go right away. They worked quickly, but carefully and really made the most of the time. The guys were super nice and professional and worked really well as a team. We were surprised how fast they got everything done. Would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys!

    thumb Morgan L.

      Hands down the best movers we have had and we have moved 9 times in 9 years!
    Elliott and his guys were all very attentive and quick. They didnt mess around. The entire 10 hour move they kept a speedy pace, since were paying hourly its important for them not to slow down. Their hourly rate was very fair and better than all the other quotes I received. They were all very respectful and kept a great attitude. I will definitely be referring them as well as using them for any future moves. Dont hesitate, you cant go wrong with these guys!!
    Oh and so far we haven't found anything broken from the move. They pad and wrap everything very well.

    thumb Breanne P.

      The 5 star reviews on this company are No joke, they really are that exceptional. Everyone from Elliot, the owner, to his two guys Mike and Dave, hustled All day without so much as a peep about my accidental misuse of the word "several" . Despite the miscommunication on my part, they were good sports about it and got the job done while cracking jokes and having a great time. I'm not sure if they really enjoy what they do or they are just happy guys but the way they work sure makes it seem like they enjoy it and like it's a great day to help you move.

    thumb A M.
  •   We truly enjoyed our move with Sterling. They packed up our 3,500 sq ft house in one day and moved us into storage, it was as if the move never happened as it was that seamless. There was a big of a snag along the way and they made it right from the get go. They truly have very high customer service and their owner Elliot is a honest man, not something you find a lot in the moving business.

    thumb Sarah M.

      Sterling Interstate was fantastic!   They moved us from Daly City (just south of San Francisco) to Tempe, AZ. Elliott quoted us a fair price and consistently updated us. Nick and Ron showed up right on time.   They were trustworthy, professional, and great to talk to.  We felt like we were in good hands as soon as they arrived.  And we were right.  They took great care in protecting our things, and they worked hard all the way through moving out and in in very short order.  They were the best movers we have ever had.   Thank you to all!

    thumb Matthew K.

      Why am I not surprised that Sterling Interstate has 5 stars?! I can't say enough great things about this company and the awesome people that work there. From the start to finish, it was so easy. From the owner to the employees, everyone is friendly, attentive, and honest. We went through 2 different moving companies with absolutely nightmarish results. The owner, Elliot, came in with a far from ideal situation and timeline and not only did he make it happen, it was the EASIEST part of our entire move.

    Elliot and Team, you are seriously the best around and my family appreciates all the help and professionalism that you provided.

    Use this company. You will not be disappointed.

    thumb Ryan B.
  •   Amazing is all I can say. These guys were the ultimate professionals. Showed up on time, finished in record time. They were friendly and funny and just did the best job. I highly recommend and I will use them for any future moves.

    thumb Jennifer M.

      Where to even start... My husband and I recently relocated from Phoenix to Kansas City, Missouri. We wanted a small company to move just our stuff from point A to point. When we hired Sterling, we got that and so much more. The crew was polite, respectful, helpful and most importantly took great care moving our things. They arrived on time both in Phoenix and at our new home in KC and communicated to us on the road trip where they were staying with our stuff. When they arrived to unload, they made sure everything was where we wanted it and if they took it apart, they put it back together for us. Not one item was broke, not one coffee mug or dish or mirror! Amazing! They met and exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you so much for moving us and making the whole process smooth from start to finish! Special thanks to Elliott and Dave! They are examples of good, honest business guys!

      Where's the 5++ stars when you need it?? This company ROCKS!

    After significantly downsizing and packing up a house of 23 years, we contacted a local mover who then referred me to Elliot (Sterling Interstate). Elliot responded to my initial inquiry very promptly, gave me a reasonable quote, came out to the house to assess the job, and continued to be responsive to every email and phone call prior to our move.

    His team (Dave et al) is an AMAZING group of guys who are professional, respectful, and extremely helpful. After our house was packed up I asked if they could move a couple of BIG items from the garage into the house (for the next occupants) and they did it - no questions, no attitude! These guys were so accommodating.

    This move was extremely emotional for me. I lived in this house a long time and in Phoenix for over 35 years. Our company related move to Nebraska seemed insurmountable, but Elliot and his team made it efficient and easy. They packed my wall art and other precious items - EVERYTHING arrived in perfect condition. Too, we were on the road a day ahead of them and Elliot kept me informed as to their location all along the way!

    After everything was unpacked, Elliot and Dave assembled our beds, moved the heavy furniture around where we directed it, and made certain before they left that everything was as we wanted.

    I told Elliot that when we're ready for our next move (likely BACK to AZ) we will fly him out to Nebraska to load us up and move us again! He and his entire team are THAT impressive!

    thumb Carol M.
  •   Elliot and his team exude the true meaning of an honest, professional business. The efficiency and price was second to none. I have referred Sterling Interstate to close friends and anyone considering a move. This team has impressed, and exceeded the expectations of each one of them, as well as myself. I can confidently say I trusted and thoroughly enjoyed working with Sterling Interstate!

      There just aren't enough GREAT words to describe our experience with Sterling Interstate.  We had a work related move, from Sun Lakes AZ to SLC Utah, in Jan 2018 that came up rather suddenly.  After getting quotes from the 'big name' moving companies, and being really unimpressed with both their numbers and their vague timeframes, I went looking for an alternative.  With very limited time, I turned to Yelp to look for smaller, locally owned companies with great reviews.  I first called Parker's Interstate, who wasn't able to do the move, but Brandon actually went out of his way to recommend a competitor, Sterling Interstate.  & if you're reading this Brandon a GREAT BIG THANK YOU!
    Called Elliot @ Sterling; he made the time to come give us a quote the very next day.  Not only did he provide a full service NTE for $3,000 LESS THAN the lowest quote of big name movers, he moved mountains to arrange the packing, loading, moving, & delivery on OUR schedule.  And did I mention this was all pretty last minute?
    Next, the crew themselves.  Showed up on time - both days, personable (funny as heck actually), and did an AMAZING job of packing up my gazillion knick-knacks and antique collections.  Husband was home first day of packing and he called me at work just to tell me what a great job they were doing.  Day 2 of packing, Dave let me know that they were coming in under estimated times so the charges were being reduced by $350.  What company does THAT if you've already signed an NTE???  Sterling Does!
    The move itself was seamless - everything as promised & all as scheduled.  Dave & Ron were AMAZING.  Just the 2 of them, unloaded 2 packed to the brim trucks into our new 2 story digs in a single day.  Dont know how you guys do it - y'all are like Energizer Bunnies!  And never once losing their sense of humor or customer service skills.
    Unpacking was incredible - to see how carefully the crew took care of our most delicate items was mind blowing.  Best example (and there are many I could list) of this would be a vintage/antique doll collection that I've worked on since I was a teenager.  One of the large dolls has porcelain legs, formed in a sitting position.  Tim packed this collection on the AZ end.  & when I unpacked it, I found he had made a little bench out of washcloths to support this doll during the move.   A little bench.  For a doll!  See?  These guys are AWESOME!
    Elliot, I hope you know when we move again within Utah, y'all are going to have to come up and be our team.  I wont willingly move with ANY other company but Sterling!

    thumb M A.

      We moved from Mesa to Sacramento and Sterling made everything simple. It was a quick move and Elliot came out for an estimate and worked around my schedule. The price was reasonable, our movers Dave and Lance were phenomenal and detail oriented. They were thoughtful and made what could have been stressful into a super simple process. Our dog Sammy also gives them two paws up. He became fast friends with the guys.

    thumb Summer J.
  •   These guys are so amazing. They are skilled, professional, courteous and will exceed all your expectations (which is such a relief as moving is stressful enough anyway). The price was fair, did not change despite needing to rent a trailer, and they even assembled stuff for us. I loved everything about my experience with Sterling Interstate. I'm so glad we found them.

    thumb Shan H.

      You know how some say that a fairly new company will probably be good because they are eager and still building their business?  Well, in this case, Sterling might be fairly new but they are not good just because they are eager.  They are just an excellent company!  The owner, Elliott, is hands on and really cares about his customers and their circumstances.  His superb professionalism is evident from the first conversation.  

    I researched several companies for my move and Sterling stood out - hands down.  The price was certainly a factor - they are very reasonable - but it was also Elliott's follow through and friendly assistance before we even engaged in a 'deal'.  

    My move was 'involved' and without hesitation, Elliott and his team remained professional and met every challenge.  By the end of the day, I was calling him "Mr. Positive".  He was organized, as was his team and they did not cut ONE corner.  Safety and protection of all my things was paramount. What a pleasure to deal with someone that has such a great outlook and work ethic!  He and his guys HUSTLED the whole day ... I was beyond impressed with how they exceeded all my expectations.  

    Of the 5 most stressful situations life brings; moving is #3.  I am here to tell you that, without a doubt, Elliott relieved a great deal of the chaos and stress for me, during this transition.  If you want an honest, hard working, professional moving team to assist you ... this is your company!
