This is something that depends on a moving company. If your local movers in the Bay Area have a storage unit, they will be able to store your furniture. On the other hand, if that is not the case, you should find a storage unit and your preferred movers will move you in or out of a storage unit.

Local movers that are experienced and professional offer service of disassembly and reassembly of your items as a part of their standard service. Not only is it safer, but this is the only way they can utilize the space in a moving truck in order that everything fits.

Unfortunately, not every local movers are licensed. When hiring a local moving company you should always check if they are licensed because you don’t want to have someone who is shady handling your belongings and spending time in your home. 

If you hired a licensed moving company, you have someone who is insured as well. Most of the local moving companies in the Bay Area are offering basic coverage insurance that is regulated for all movers. But if you would like to have third party insurance, you can feel free to do so.
