That’s why we offer extensive San Diego moving services, which cover everything from packing the smallest knick-knacks to making sure your antique furniture gets to your new home safely.

You don’t want just anyone handling your most precious possessions. That’s why Move Central hires only the best, most experienced long-distance movers.

Moving to San Diego from Los Angeles

When you’re going through a long distance move, worrying about costs just adds another layer of stress to the process. That’s why we offer firm, flat rates for Los Angeles long distance moving. With Move Central, there are never hidden fees.

We also offer different options for transportation to fit your needs. For folks with a lower budget, we have shared trucks. We use a detailed inventory system and barricades to avoid any mixups, so this is a great option if you want to reduce your San Diego moving cost. If you’d rather that your belongings travel alone, we also provide dedicated trucks. The best part about a dedicated truck? We start traveling the moment we finish packing. Unlike other companies, that can take up to 21 days to deliver your belongings, we hit the road as soon as possible to give you the best delivery time we can.

The road from Los Angeles to San Diego is long, and we understand that some moves take more time. If you are using temporary housing while you find your perfect home, you can trust that your belongings will stay safe in our San Diego storage facilities. Move Central’s secure storage service includes fully-staffed and monitored storage space with a full inventory, so we can keep track of every item you’ve entrusted to us. You’ll be able to retrieve your items by appointment, or have them delivered to your new home as soon as you’re ready.

Living in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the City of Angels, and the name truly says something about the unique nature of this amazing city. Home to celebrities, CEOs, business people and thousands of families, LA is a thriving community, and a city that never ceases evolving.

Currently, LA is home to almost 18.5 million people, making it America’s second largest metropolitan area. If New York is the City of Dreams, Los Angeles is “Where Dreams Come True.” You’ll find people working in every industry within the city; combine the resident’s all-out ambitions with California’s penchant for slow living, and you get a crazy combination of people who love to hustle– when they aren’t relaxing at the beach.

If you’re planning on living in Los Angeles, a car is an absolute must. Los Angeles’ traffic is notorious, and gridlock is a daily occurrence. But unlike NYC and Boston, there’s no train system to speak of. Some folks choose to go the other way, living in a downtown area and forgoing their car for a biking and walking lifestyle. So really, it’s your choice, but if you want to get somewhere out of walking distance, you will need reliable transportation.

Luckily, there are plenty of benefits to living in Los Angeles that make the traffic worth it. You can eat anything, on any diet. Seriously, even if you aren’t a vegetarian or vegan, you’re going to love some of the vegan restaurants out here. You know what else you can do? Take a dip in the ocean in November, because it’s LA and the temperature here is amazing. LA will also love you for who you are. It’s one of the most diverse and proud communities in America. No matter what language you speak, where you were born or who you love, Los Angeles is waiting with open arms.

If you want to learn more about Los Angeles, or ask about our long distance moving quotes for San Diego to Los Angeles, give us a call at (858) 230-8281. We can also handle your move from San Diego to Orange County or any other location in California and beyond. We can’t wait to hear from you!

    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!
