Moving to Santee

Searching for that ideal outdoor California lifestyle? Moving to Santee might be just what you need. The city sits just 18 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and offers a long list of hiking and horseback riding opportunities as well as open-air musical and arts festivals. Santee’s rich history reaches back to the late 18th century and features signs of its past throughout the area

When you choose to settle down in this idyllic town, you need a team of Santee movers that match its friendly, responsible and neighborly energy. Our trained and passionate team at Move Central ensures that your relocation runs smoothly from start to finish. We handle every detail, from packing and storage to both local and long-distance moves.

The population of Santee sits just over 57,000 people. The town has a strong show of diversity both in cultural background, age and income level. Excellent public schools and ample green space also make this a popular town to raise a family. Love California weather? Santee enjoys warm summers with highs in the upper 80s, mild winters and an above-average number of sun-filled days.

Though living in Santee falls in line with a suburban lifestyle, there are plenty of things to do year-round. The Santee Summer Concert Series runs throughout the majority of the summertime right in the center of town. A line of stunning lakes like the Northwest neighborhoods, ending in ample campground and hiking trails. Plenty of restaurants and shopping line Mission Gorge Road through the center of the city.

The city’s economy is also quite strong. The median household income surpasses that of the area, sitting at $77,460. The cost of living is a bit high, but the trade-off comes with a richly active town and easy access to nearby San Diego. With jobs spread out both in town and in San Diego, the average commute is just over 25 minutes, slightly higher than the national average.

Classic Southern California ranch homes and tree-lined streets welcome families and professionals to a quaint, caring community. Moving to Santee is ideal for those looking for a little quiet and natural beauty while remaining connected to the abundant cultural opportunities of the region.

    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!
