Relocating to/within Bakersfield with Smooth Move USA

Located in Kern County, California, Bakersfield is located about halfway between Fresno and Los Angeles and serves as an important energy production and agricultural center for California. This beautiful city is nestled between the Greenhorn Mountain Range, the Sequoia National Forest, and Kern Canyon with a population of more than 380,000. Bakersfield has plenty to offer residents and visitors, including its historic Basque architecture, the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra, and the Buck Owens Crystal Palace, a music venue celebrating the city as the birthplace of country music. Whether you’re relocating to Bakersfield, life is taking you away from the city, or you’re just changing neighborhoods, Smooth Move USA is the best moving company in Bakersfield to make your relocation a breeze.

We’ve served Bakersfield for more than 13 years and have earned a 4.7/5 customer satisfaction rate thanks to our unparalleled customer care. Our Bakersfield movers are standing by to take the stress out of your next move.

Top Reasons to Move with a Bakersfield Moving Company

Once considered little more than a pass-through community on long drives through California’s Central Valley, Bakersfield is now a booming city welcoming thousands of new residents every year, many of whom have been priced out of expensive cosmopolitan areas. Many newcomers to Bakersfield are young — that’s no surprise in a city with a median age of just 30. Whether you’re relocating for a career, starting school, or want to be closer to family, count on Bakersfield’s best moving company — Smooth Move USA — for a smooth and easy transition to your new home.

Are you moving for career opportunities and a lower cost of living? Bakersfield is also one of the top destinations for millennial job-seekers thanks to its affordability and strong job market. Many younger people tire of long commutes, urban congestion, and sky-high rent and move to more inviting regions; Bakersfield definitely tops the list with many newcomers arriving from expensive areas like California’s Bay Area. As one of the top Bakersfield moving companies, we can help you complete your move without the stress to enjoy the opportunities that Bakersfield has to offer.

You may also want to move to the area to pursue a degree at Santa Barbara Business College-Bakersfield, California State University-Bakersfield, or Bakersfield College, one of the oldest community colleges in the U.S. Our Bakersfield movers are here to help every step of the way!

Why Hire Professional Bakersfield Movers

We get it: relocating can be expensive and you may want to cut costs where you can. A DIY move can save you some money — but it does come with its own costs and risks. Don’t underestimate how stressful and time-consuming it can be to pack up your entire home and spend a full day loading a truck. That’s on top of trying to plan logistics, watch kids, and make sure nothing is overlooked. Can you even be sure that you packed properly and nothing will be broken? With the best Bakersfield movers on your side, you can rest easy knowing everything will be handled efficiently and correctly.

The experienced, trained pros at our affordable Bakersfield moving company go above and beyond to make your relocation experience as fast, easy, and stress-free as possible. We’ll arrive on moving day with the right supplies and equipment, ensure everything is protected and packed for the trip, and handle all of the heavy lifting. You can sit back and look forward to the excitement of your new location.

With one of the top-rated moving companies in Bakersfield on your side, you can skip the hassle and risks of moving yourself — including damaged furniture, broken heirlooms, and the back pain — and trust that everything will get from A to B unharmed.

How to Choose the Top Bakersfield Moving Company

There are lots of Bakersfield moving companies out there, but finding the right one can be tough. You want affordability, but you also want professionalism, customer service, and reliability. Don’t trust your belongings to inexperienced movers in Bakersfield — here’s how to find a trusted moving company that will make your relocation a positive experience.

A good place to begin is by searching for Bakersfield movers quotes on Google and Yelp, then checking the Better Business Bureau. Are the reviews overwhelmingly positive? If there are negative remarks, do you see a pattern? Do they deliver on their promises?

When comparing top-rated Bakersfield moving companies, be sure to ask plenty of questions:

  • Are they licensed and insured?
  • What is their claims rate?
  • How many relocations do they do every year?
  • Do they have experience with your type of move?
  • How long have they been in business?
  • Do they have transparent moving rates without hidden fees?

Bakersfield Movers Cost -- What to Expect

So, how much does it cost to hire a professional moving company in Bakersfield? Not as much as you think! Many factors will influence the cost of your relocation — including the season, how much you need to move, the distance, the number of Bakersfield movers you need, and how accessible the home is. Movers don’t need to cost an arm and a leg, though.

You can expect an hourly rate for local moves and a flat-rate price for a long-distance move. To make your relocation as affordable as possible, Bakersfield moving companies allow you to customize the level of service you need whether you just need help with loading and unloading or want full-service movers complete with packing services.

Common Bakersfield Movers Questions

Can Bakersfield movers pack my home?
Want to skip the hours of packing and worry that something will get broken? Our movers offer expert packing services with the right supplies for a worry-free relocation.

When should I call a moving company?
Ideally, you should get in touch with movers a minimum of 4 weeks before the big move. Get an estimate and schedule service even if you don’t know the exact date yet.

Is there a minimum number of hours for hiring movers?
For local moves, you usually need to book a minimum of two to three hours.

Do moving companies in Bakersfield have surcharges or hidden fees?
Some movers do charge additional fees and surcharges that may not be included in your estimate like fuel surcharges or fees for oversized items. At Smooth Move USA, we do not have surcharges or hidden costs — we believe you have enough on your plate and offer upfront, transparent pricing.

What Bakersfield Moving Companies Can't Do to Help

While our reputable movers in Bakersfield will go above and beyond to make your transition as seamless and problem-free as possible, we can’t help with every aspect of your move. We recommend you follow these moving tips ahead of the big day to make sure nothing is overlooked.

  • It’s up to you to decide where to live! Do your research ahead of time to choose the best Bakersfield neighborhood or 55+ community in the area.
  • If you’re moving from outside the area, get a feel for the city before moving day with our guide to living in Bakersfield, CA.
  • Don’t forget to set up or move your utilities with the water and power turned on at least the day before you or the movers arrive.
  • Donate or sell belongings you won’t need for an easier move.
    Change your address with USPS. You should also update important contacts with the new address.
