About Ahmed’s Moving Express, The Bay Area’s Hometown Mover

Ahmed Issa, founder and owner of Ahmed’s Moving Express came to the United States in 1988. He was born and grew up in Tanzania, Africa. Ahmed came here, as so many do, in search of the American dream.

Although initially he did not speak English, he brought with him a strong work ethic and desire to learn and succeed. He enrolled at College of Marin and studied Business Administration and English as a Second Language. During that time he worked part time for a local moving company.

In 1997 he bought his first moving van. For three years, Ahmed contracted with other moving companies and then in 2000 he incorporated as Ahmed’s Moving Express. He purchased the office and warehouse located in The Vineyard in San Rafael in 2004, and moved the business to the larger location at 17 Paul in San Rafael in 2023.

For 23 years, as Ahmed’s Moving Express has grown, we have provided Marin and California residents with a local and statewide moving service that has garnered a trusted reputation for reliability and quality.

In 2011, Ahmed’s Moving Express partnered with the interstate moving company, Wheaton World Wide Moving, and Wheaton awarded them the Top New Agent for the West Coast (a region of 11 states). This partnership has enabled Ahmed’s Moving Express to become the perfect company to help you relocate your home and your life, whether you’re moving across the street or across the country.
