San Rafael, CA Movers

Moving to San Rafael

Located just north of San Francisco, San Rafael is a small city right on the coast of the San Francisco Bay. Known as “The City with a Mission,” San Rafael is characterized by its famous Film Center, stunning weather and wide array of dining and entertainment options.

Are you asking yourself, “Where can I find a good moving company?” Smooth Move USA performs more than 1,200 moves every year for families in San Rafael, and we hire only the best local movers to ensure that our customers are satisfied, every time.

If you haven’t lived in the area before, you’ll quickly notice that San Rafael has some of the best weather on the West Coast. The average temperature here is warm and mild, ranging between 50-75 degrees throughout most of the year. Being so close to the Bay, the city enjoys wonderful seaside breezes that keep the area from getting too hot, while still basking in the sun 256 days of the year. If you’re looking for a coastal paradise, San Rafael is about as close as it gets.

Before you settle into the city, it’s always helpful to know a little bit about your neighbors. Today, there are nearly 60,000 people living in San Rafael. Of those, about half are married, the majority speak English as a first language, and 30% have completed a college education at a 4-year university. The median age in San Rafael is 45, and the city’s residents are evenly split between homeowners and renters.

According to the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, the top private sector employers in the municipality are Kaiser Permanente, Marin General Hospital and Fireman’s Fund Insurance. Unsurprisingly, the largest industries here are Healthcare, Science & Tech and Education. The average household income in San Rafael is $124,863, which is significantly higher than the averages for the state and country.

As we mentioned, San Rafael is known as a hub for the arts. One of the most famous residents of the city is George Lucas, the creator of both the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, among others. So it’s no surprise that one of the most popular attractions in the area is a movie theater. The Smith Rafael Film Center focuses on independent and foreign films, as well as documentaries, and also hosts Q&As with filmmakers and group film discussions.
