berkeley moving tips

Moving to Berkeley?

Berkeley is a diverse community linked to San Francisco by the iconic Bay Bridge. Before you plan a residential relocation to the city, Magic Movers offer these tips:


  • Prepare for perfect weather. With January lows in the upper 40s and July highs in the low 70s, Berkeley feels like a Mediterranean seaside town. You will need an umbrella only 60 or so days a year.
  • Choose a neighborhood. Berkeley movers know that downtown is student-driven; whereas Berkeley Hills is upscale. South Berkeley offers the best home prices, while Rockridge brings the feel of a New England town to California.
  • Focus on health. The city is bicycle friendly; it taxes sugary sodas, and it boasts several parks. Tilden Regional Park has a golf course and many recreational options with one of the best views in the city.
  • Bring a bag. With a city-wide ban on plastic bags, bring a reusable one whenever you plan to shop. This includes any of the 32 bookstores and other city shopping options.
  • Dine out – a lot. This city takes restaurant dining seriously with its “Gourmet Ghetto.” This strip of restaurants includes foods from around the world and classic California cuisine.
  • Reconnect with your hippy roots. Visit Telegraph Avenue to purchase Bob Marley CDs, tie-dyed shirts and incense. Berkeley citizens love to protest, so if you want to take a stand, you’ll have a selection of marches to join.
