Bakersfield, CA Movers

Moving to Bakersfield

Bakersfield is a California city located about 2 hours north of Los Angeles, at the Southern tip of the Sequoia National Park. The area is best known for its great weather, beautiful surroundings and job opportunities in Energy and Agriculture.

Looking for the best local moving company in Bakersfield? Our movers are professional trained, and have over a decade of experience helping families and businesses move throughout Southern California.

Kern County, where Bakersfield is located, is the top oil producing county in America, but it’s also become a hub for the newest innovations in natural gas, and renewable energy sources, including solar power. Energy companies in Bakersfield include Aera Energy LLC, California Crude Oil Co and other petroleum corporations, as well as Tesla, SoCl Gas, Semper Solaris and more.

Living in Bakersfield costs less than you might think! The median home value in the city is just $214,600, or 48% lower than other areas on the West Coast. Renters pay about $1,000 per month for a one-bedroom apartment, which is 23% lower than the California median. Utilities here are more expensive than the average American home, likely owing to the use of central air units in more homes year round.

Why are people using their A/C all year in Bakersfield? Because like most of SoCal, this city gets plenty of sun, and plenty of heat. The average temperature here can get as high as 99 degrees during the Summer, and even during cooler months, it rarely goes below 45 degrees. The sun is out 272 days per year, and the city gets minimal rainfall and zero snow.

If you’re considering moving to Bakersfield, you’ll be happy to know that there are also a ton of fun activities in the city itself, and nearby. As we mentioned before, Sequoia National Park is just minutes away, and features hundreds of acres of hiking trails, camping grounds and even fishing opportunities. Bakersfield is also home to the California Living Museum (a zoo), which focuses on plants and animals that are native to the area.


Quality Moving Services

If this is your first time moving, or you’ve always moved yourself in the past, you might be wondering, “What are the benefits of hiring a moving company?”. The answer is: there are several!

Hiring a moving company can help reduce your stress levels, save you tons of time, and quite literally take the burden of loading heavy furniture off your shoulders. Using a professional company can also help keep your precious belongings safe from start to finish. Plus, if you find the right company, you’ll be able to fit your move into your budget, without worrying about hidden costs and moving day fees.

Aside from moving day itself, the most stressful part of any move is the packing. While filling boxes may sound simple, being confronted with the sheer amount of possessions you own can be overwhelming, to say the least. Professional packing services from Smooth Move USA make packing easy; simply tell us which rooms you need help with, and then go relax while we do all the heavy lifting.

Another great benefit of working with Smooth Move USA is our wide range of services. Whether you’re moving to Bakersfield from one town over, or from across the state, we can help you with local and long distance moving packages that we can customize to fit your needs– and your budget. Smooth Move also provides services to help seniors who are downsizing, or moving to a senior living community, so you can ensure your loved one is taken care throughout their transition.

Do you own a local business that’s moving offices or storefronts in Bakersfield? With firm cost estimates, a top-rated crew of movers and a streamlined process including inventory management, we make it easy to stay focused on your customers, even during a commercial move. We can even move you after-hours, so you can continue providing top-quality service to your customers, even during the changeover.
