Moving from California to Washington?

Depending on where you live in California, moving north to Washington can mean a change in landscape, lifestyle and cost of living. The northern parts of California are not all too dissimilar to the Pacific Northwest, at least in terms of geography, and some people even include them within the region’s boundaries. But making a move from LA to Seattle could be something of a culture shock. The west coast states still have plenty of differences. There are plenty of reasons to make the move, however, even if you might be giving up sunny California days for a wetter climate.


When you’re planning a move from California to Washington, we’re here for you to make your move easy. You could be moving over a thousand miles, which is a pretty long way to travel with all of your stuff. With a good moving company, you can remove a lot of the difficulties that can arise when carrying out a long distance move. We’ll help you to move all of your stuff to your new home, doing all of the heavy lifting so that you can take care of other things. Our customer-focused service is designed to take the stress out of your long distance, cross-state move so there’s no need to hesitate about moving.

Cost of Living

There are lots of things to love about Washington and plenty of reasons to move there from California. It might not be as warm, but you still get plenty of long days during the summer, and there are other things to enjoy too. One big plus for Washington is that there’s no state income tax, although sales tax is higher. Another bonus is the high minimum wage, which is $12 per hour in 2019. However, the cost of living is higher too, so budgeting correctly after your move is important. It will help you get off to a good start by budgeting your move.


You have a choice of city locations or somewhere more rural when you move to Washington. Seattle is the largest city, with a large population and plenty happening, including a great music scene. However, the cost of living is also higher. Cities where the median income tend to be lower include Spokane and Olympia, the state’s capital. Or if you want to be close to Seattle, Tacoma is more affordable. If you’re thinking about somewhere outside of the big cities, you might consider the beautiful islands of Puget Sound, accessible by ferry.
