All You Need to Know About Fog City

Famous for its fog and rain days, SF is the commercial, cultural and financial center of Northern California. This unique Fog City is also the second-most densely populated city in the US. The metropolis is also famous for its narrow streets, old houses, and diversities. It is a financial center in California known for the fast development of the startups and tech industry. Since SF is the home of Silicon Valley, the world’s richest companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook have their headquarters here. If you are relocating because of the tech job, you are in a perfect place.

Choose the Right Neighborhood to Settle In

As you may know, SF is famous for its steep streets and vibrant neighborhoods, with many coffee bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. In fact, Irish coffee was popularized here. All the city parts have some unique vibes, so no matter which area you choose, there will be something special about it.

However, make sure you prepared your budget because SF is not cheap. An average one-bedroom apartment in the city center goes up to $3,200, while for three bedrooms in the exact location, you will pay $7,300. Outside the city center, renting prices are a little bit lower, from $2,600 for a one-bedroom to $4,260 for a three-bedroom.

If you are a young professional, you will probably want to live in the most popular and newest neighborhood in the SF bay area Mission Bay. It is tech-centered and populated with a lot of young people. The second most popular community for young professionals is South Beach. Its proximity to Somma, Mission Bay, the financial district, and AT&T Park, where all the giants are located, is what makes this neighborhood so appealing. If you are relocating with your family, Presdo will be a perfect choice for you. This former military fort on the north of SF, which is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area, is the best choice for many young couples. It offers plenty of housing options, good public schools, and fantastic recreation areas.

There is So Much to See in SF

When you think of California, cities like SF and Los Angeles pop into your mind first. Movies portray them in a certain way that creates high expectations for newcomers. Don’t worry, SF will deliver. There are so many things to see and do in SF you’ll never be bored.

Start with Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate park because they are some of the world’s most famous sights. Alcatraz island and Lands end(where you can see wrecked ships) is a place to visit for history lovers. Also, there is the Walt Disney Museum and The Palace Of Fine Arts, among many museums and art galleries. But even if you don’t visit any of the attractions, every street and neighborhood will have something of cultural significance and bits and pieces of history to offer you. So don’t overthink it. Start packing as soon as possible.

Transport Your Vehicle With Our Car Shipping Option

Do you wish to move your vehicle to your new address? Well, with our San Francisco moving company, this can be done too. You don’t need to look for a separate car shipping service. With our auto transport service, your relocation will be complete. You can choose two types of car transportation options, open and enclosed carrier. No matter which option you choose, you can be sure that your car or cars will be at your new address on time and in one piece.

Which Transportation Option You Should Choose?

Depending on your budget and your needs, you can choose an open or enclosed carrier, as we mentioned above. So what is the difference? An open trailer is a cheaper option, and it is a better option if you have more than one car. This is the most common way to ship your car. Although your car will be safe from damage, it will not be safe from dirt, rain, and road debris. An enclosed carrier is more expensive, and it is an excellent option if you have a sport or luxury vehicle you want to transfer as safely as possible.

Pick up and Delivery Options

There are also two types of delivery options you can choose from, door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal. If you choose the door-to-door option, your car will be picked up and delivered to your front yard, with exceptions if your street is too narrow for a trailer to go in. In this case, your car will be left at the nearest parking lot. Of course, our agents will contact you to let you know of all the delivery charges. With terminal-to-terminal, you will have to leave and pick up your vehicle at the nearest terminal. This option is cheaper, but it requires effort from your side. Don’t worry, our long-distance moving company has a terminal in every major city, so this will not be such an inconvenience for you.

Try Our Free Storage Facilities for Whole Month

That’s right our company provides its customers free storage facilities for the whole month. So if you are relocating at the last minute or your new place is not ready yet, and you don’t know where to put your precious items, you can store them in our high-quality storage units. Your belongings will be safe in our climate control units. And even if you have a small number of things to store, you can choose the unit’s size depending on your needs.

Your Belongings Are Safe With Our Moving Insurance

Like any reputable moving services in San Francisco, our company will provide you with the best care possible. Our professionals will pack and protect your belongings in the best way possible, so the chances of damages are pretty low. But like in any line of job, accidents can occur.

This is why we provide moving insurance for our customers if anything happens during your move. We provide insurance at a rate of $0.60 per pound. This is mandatory insurance, and it can not be negotiable. Insurance becomes active once our professionals take your stuff and until the belongings are safely delivered to your new home. Also, insurance only covers items our professionals handled.

There is a Third-Party Insurance Available

We understand that a mandatory insurance policy is maybe low for some of your valuables like jewelry, antiques, paintings, and others. This is why we encourage our clients to take third-party insurance for their valuable items. However, be aware that our professionals must pack these items beforehand.

Contact Our Moving Company to Give You a Free Quote

Now that you know all about SF, it is time for the big step. Don’t hesitate and contact our agents right away. It would be advisable to start your relocation process at least three months before. Choose your company with the most care and ask for in-home estimations from at least three San Francisco moving companies before deciding which one to pick. But bear in mind that our company will give you a price that will be without any hidden costs.

Ai H. Goleta, CA

Just recently, I bought a used car in San Diego despite living in LA and needed a way for my car to be transported to me. Thankfully, my friend referred me to this place that was also in San Diego. Transporting a car could very expensive, but it was more affordable than I thought! so I scheduled everything accordingly and had them deliver my car to me. It was definitely worth it since my car was fairly cheap and my dad knew how he was gonna fix it so everything was worth it. They got my car to me and had no problem picking up as scheduled with the seller and no damage or hiccups during the transport! Very satisfied with the service and would definitely recommend them to my friends or anyone!

Anna L. Los Angeles, CA

My sister in Portland was relocating to another country and she needed to get rid of a lot of her furniture and even some appliances and she decided to let me inherit them. She used Long Distance Movers in Portland and they effectively communicated with me when they would schedule to come deliver her stuff to my place I’m SF. Apparently she told me if I wanted to keep all her things to at least pay for their service in which I did. Good thing we coordinated because I just moved in to my new place and needed all the furnishings. I met the minimum for their service and they provided a reasonable contract and in turn everything turned out great! She even told how they carefully wrapped and packed up everything as well. Definitely a great service to use!

Brianna S. Huntington Beach, CA

I was helping my friend move back down to California from Seattle. There’s a lot of moving companies but I went with this one because of their quote per item and distance moved was something she can afford. Then we set a schedule for moving and they came prepared with their trucks and Mark was their lead guy and helped us out with everything. He coordinated the whole move gracefully with no damage and even covered her things to protect, a nice touch.

Especially with moving large appliances, I was appreciative to receive help moving all of the heavier objects we had.

The movers delivered all of the belongings safely to the new house and were again, super punctual with their delivery.

Celina C. Richmond, Canada

My car is a really old Volvo and since it is now considered a vintage/retro automobile, I was extremely weary about having it transported to my area. Honestly, I don’t know much at all about these services, but I was really worried about moving companies in general, especially because of the risks involved, including damages that may happen during handling while being transported.

During my last move, I used a different moving service and it was a nightmare. I paid a lot and had a vintage, German-made GRAND piano get scratched and no one took responsibility. It was a huge disappointment but this time, I decided to look elsewhere and took a chance with Long Distance Moving and Auto transport, and they really delivered.

Everything came perfect and the price was less than $800 for the whole service… comparing it to my previous service, I’m shocked to say the least. The price is great, and for someone who was worrying like me, they had a policy where they would cover any damages (if they should incur) during the move/transportation and it put me to ease. I can’t say enough good things.

Gabby O. Los Angeles, CA

I bought a car in Tarant County Texas since the sales tax is non existent and my dad suggested getting a car from his friend’s used dealership. My dad offered to get me the car, but I would have to only pay the shipping. Long distance movers had auto shipping and it was a good price to get my car transported from there to the bay. It was really affordable for me and when I got my car, it was still perfect in the condition in which we bought it for. They were very professional through whole process and informative. Definitely a 5 star rating for the service and professionalism!

Kaitlyn V. Fountain Valley, CA

I got a car while I was visiting my family in the Bay. So I needed it to be brought down to SoCal, because I wasn’t finished with my vacation yet and went by plane. After searching for moving companies, I found one in San Fransisco.

Long distance movers offered me a good rate per mile compared to other companies. The workers reassured me on the condition of my new car when it would arrive safely in SoCal. They said they would insure the car from any damages, and there’s no need to worry.

I’m glad I found this company because they made me feel like I was in good hands, and they definitely proved it to me. If you need a moving company, be sure to check this one out because they made my life a lot easier!

Kirsten Rose K. Pinole, CA

I was in NY over the summer and when it was over I moved back home. During that timw I also needed to store things and then have it shipped to me back home later. Thankfully I was able to do that with Long Distance Movers! They were able to store my stuff until I was home to be shipped back to me. The space in NY apartments are very scarce and sk this is the way I had to keep my things instead of asking my friends there to do so. My experience was a pleasant and stress-less one and I have zero complaints with their service! A huge recommend!!

Matthew A. San Diego, CA

My uncle is no longer driving his car and wanted to ship me his car to keep and make room in his garage so he can store his other belongings so a family friend can move and do some care taking.

I did some hunting and came across Houston Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport as well as some others. They were one of the first one who got back to me with quote that was more than reasonable for cost per mile in an open trailer. My uncle was more than happy to hear that I took care everything for him and they were really courteous and helpful when they came and picked up his car.

A week later the car was transported and delivered with care. Contract all signed and done. Now I gotta new used car just like that! I highly recommend this team should you need some good pricing and service!

Michael D. Redmond, WA

This was my first time using a moving and transportation service. I had a very good experience with Manhattan Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport. I was attending college around the area in New York and once I graduated, I had so much stuff that I wanted to take back home with me in Washington. This would be shipping across the country so I know that I needed a long distance service.

I checked out the website and filled in my information to get a quote. I was surprised by how affordable the price was, considering I am moving all my stuff across the country. It made it easy for college students to be able to use the service. Anyways, I called them and had an excellent customer experience. The representative was friendly and attentive to my needs. They did not try to up-sell me anything and was very fair in the pricing and guidelines of what to expect next. They described the entire process to me and I felt very confident and at ease in continuing with the process.

The movers came over to my apartment and moved everything into a truck very fast and safely. These are real professionals who want to make your move as smooth as possible. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with this company and after moving back home, everything came in about 2 weeks to my home address. Nothing was missing or damaged. I would recommend this service to anyone in the New York/Manhattan area who want to move long-distance while maintaining affordable prices.

Norma C. Los Angeles, CA

So my boyfriend is actually the person that found Long Distance Movers and I swear it saved me time and money! My initial plan was to have my family help us make the long drive from Seattle to Los Angeles and just penny pinch that way.. but nope! My boyfriend came thru and he said that he was told that LDM was professional and are very competitive in pricing so why not?! He said that he booked them and just let him do the rest (typical alpha male stuff I guess)..

I was a little hesitant at first but 2 people showed up on time! And also were very well prepared, it’s like they knew how to tackle on each project I was throwing at them and on top of that with a smile! They wrapped/boxed everything so quickly I was so impressed! I would definitely refer them to my friends and family in the area, I can’t stop saying this enough but they were polite, proficient, quick and also not too expensive.

Moving is such a headache and stressful but I swear I wasn’t this time! Thank you LDM and to my bf for finding them!!

Roger M. Pasadena, CA

My sis graduated from Reed College earlier this year so i flew over to Portland to help her move back home. She had a lot of stuff she decided to keep last minute, more than we anticipated to ship back ourselves. We aren’t super familiar with moving services in the area but decided to go with Long Distance Movers since they responded with a quote the quickest and offered to have everything packed and loaded before we had to catch our flight in a couple days.

My sis and I are pretty weak so they were a really big help especially with packaging her desk and other big items. There were 2 movers and they packaged and cleared out everything quickly. Honestly, I don’t know how we were planning to move all her things ourselves. Us two wouldn’t have made it past the apartment stairs so we definitely needed Long Distance Movers.

Yaning W. University, Riverside, CA

Moving away from home for the first time can be a pretty daunting task. Luckily, Long Distance Movers had my back. I recently moved down from Sacramento to SoCal for university and needed a way to move a lot of my belongings down with me. I was originally recommended by a friend who had used their services before. All it took was a quick message through Yelp and they replied quickly with an estimate and more questions about my inquiry.

On the day of the actual move, they were punctual and loaded my stuff in what seemed like no time. Once I came down, everything had been delivered safely and was in great condition. My housemate who received my stuff said they unpacked my stuff neatly and without much obstruction at all! Communicating with them was seamless and super straightforward, and kudos to the driver as well! Overall, I’d say my experience was great and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the Sacramento area who wants to move something and are afraid of their items being damaged.
