Household Moving Tips to Los Angeles
The city of Los Angeles is the second-largest by population in the U.S., the largest in the state of California, and anchors the third-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. – as such, it’s a popular location for people to move to and from on a daily basis. Like most cities in the U.S. today, Los Angeles is split up into various commercial and residential districts, neighborhoods, and bedroom cities. The greater L.A. area spans multiple counties and hundreds of neighborhoods within the city itself and its sprawling bedroom cities, which means that household moving to Los Angeles encompasses the entire area. This makes it easier when finding quotes to ship to or from the city, though it can make it confusing depending on where exactly you’re shipping to.
Los Angeles, being as large as it is, is surprisingly automobile-friendly. This stems from its growth and development – prior to the 20th century, Los Angeles was shadowed by the growth and size of San Francisco. After the Great San Francisco Fire, of course, Los Angeles became the cultural and economic hot spot in California, and this came at a time when the automobile began seeing massive growth as well. Los Angeles and the automobile became synonymous by the 1950’s (despite L.A. having a one-grand trolley system, which has since been declared defunct for all intents and purposes), and its growth skyrocketed from there, particularly during the 1940’s when Hollywood became huge. Its many neighborhoods have been added over the years, and now Los Angeles is basically one huge sprawling metropolis.
Most outlying areas will be easy for auto transporters to get to or from. Wide streets in the various outlying neighborhoods were built for heavy automobile traffic, and many larger trucks are able to move around just fine. Downtown L.A. and the surrounding high-rise residential buildings may be more difficult for you to get household goods moving to or from – if you’re shipping to an area that household moving vans can’t get to, your goods will be transferred to a smaller in-town moving van that will deliver to your abode and unload there. Let your transportation company know which neighborhood or bedroom city you are shipping to or from and they will be able to let you know how delivery of your goods will be handled.
