Did you know that more than 15 percent of the U.S. population moves in a year, according to statistics from the U.S. Bureau of the Census? In fact, only about one third of Americans have never moved out of their hometown. People move every year for numerous different reasons. For example, to be closer to family, or for a better job, or simply for better weather. Interestingly however, the majority of people reporting moving for reasons linked to employment. 44 percent of people say that they have relocated due to a job opportunity or transfer. And interestingly, college graduates are more likely to move, and to move longer distances, than those with just a high school diploma. However, moving can be quite stressful on a family, both emotionally and financially.
If you are planning a move in California, whether it is long distance or local, you may want to consider hiring California moving companies to help, such as movers Santa Clarita, Valencia movers, moving companies Los Angeles, etc. Though, when hiring California movers there are several things that you will want to keep in mind. First of all, keep in mind that it tends to be most expensive to move during the warmer months, approximately June through September, a time frame known as “moving season.” Therefore, hiring any kind of moving helpers during this time frame is likely to be more expensive. Therefore, if you are looking to cut costs you may want to consider hiring California moving companies outside of this timeframe. Overall, however, California moving companies can help to facilitate smooth, stress free moves.
