Hillcrest is a popular San Diego neighborhood located on the north side of the city, near Balboa Park. The area is best known for its diverse and friendly population, and a large number of cafes, restaurants, and small businesses.

Wondering, “Where can I find a good moving company?”? Move Central has completed over 25,000 moves in California and has a 97% referral rate from our happy, satisfied customers. Let our professional team of experienced movers make your relocation to Hillcrest worry-free.

There are currently about 35,000 people living in Hillcrest, making it one of the most densely populated communities in San Diego. It’s also one of the most diverse San Diego neighborhoods, with 48% of the population identifying as Hispanic and 4% identifying as Native American (compared to less than 1% across California.) Hillcrest thrives from its diversity, which has made this community a cultural hub for many ethnicities.

This area in San Diego is also ideal for young professionals. The median rent in Hillcrest is about $1,500, which is almost $700 less than the San Diego average rent.

Hillcrest is also a major San Diego center for the LGBTQ+ movement. Down on Harvey Milk Street, you’ll find the San Diego LGBTQ+ Community Center. Around the neighborhood, you’ll see rainbow flags and meet friendly neighbors who are ready to welcome you with open arms. Hillcrest also hosts San Diego’s annual Pride Parade every June, which is one of the largest Pride celebrations in the country!

San Diego is the Craft Beer Capital of America and Hillcrest contributes with the world’s first openly gay brewery, Hillcrest Brewing Company. The area is also a top choice for food lovers, featuring diverse and delicious restaurants, and San Diego’s largest farmers’ market, providing home cooks with all the fresh ingredients they need.

Need some advice on where to eat in Hillcrest? One local favorite is the Kous Kous Moroccan Bistro, where you can enjoy traditional Moroccan dishes like Chicken Tagine and Fassi Lamb.

Dedicated Moving Services

Why should you hire Move Central for your Hillcrest moving experience? Because we put our customers first. From the first box packed to the last one unloaded, we’re a trusted partner who will be by your side to ensure your move is effortless.

Some people love packing, but let’s be honest: most people find it boring, arduous, and often, overwhelming. Most folks don’t even realize how much they really own until they’re facing down box after box. That’s why Move Central offers full-service packing options for any move. We’ll pack everything from kitchen wares to clothing, so you can sit back and relax.

Moving locally is a big deal, but moving long distance can be even tougher. You may already be anxious about your new city, or moving far away from family and friends; why worry about the safety of your belongings on top of all that? Move Central gives you the confidence you need to make the move, with flat-rate pricing, transportation options to fit every budget, and a dedicated team that will be with you every step of the way.

As a locally owned California business, we’re also here to support other SMBs in the San Diego area. Whether you’re opening a new office or moving your storefront to a bigger location as you grow, we can help make your commercial move in Hillcrest a breeze. We’ll handle everything from the heavy lifting to inventory management, so you can stay focused on your employees and customers.

So, is relocating to Hillcrest the right “move” for you? We hope so! If you have any questions about this fantastic San Diego neighborhood or want to get started with a free moving quote, give us a call at (858) 230-8281. We are a trusted provider of moving services across San Diego and can provide you with moving assistance in Downtown San Diego, or anywhere else you need us.

    5 star ratingVery professional service! Kelly and Anthony arrived on time and worked their ways through two large rooms very quickly.  They asked the right types of questions regarding boxing like items together and got the job done.  Very friendly also I must add! Will certainly be using this service again!
