While summer is typically the busy season for movers
, San Diego will be seeing more coming in than usual thanks to a local hiring boom with biotech and high-tech firms, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
One San Diego relocation
expert told the newspaper her company is handling double the amount of moves that they were this time last year. Katherine Kennedy told the Union-Tribune that "the San Diego region is turning up. There's no place anywhere else in the country that has all these (biotech and high-tech fields) at the performance level that we have." It's also common to see military personnel and their families moving to the area.
While some companies may hire firms to handle the relocation, not all do. When moving to another area for a job, there are certain things consumers need to take into consideration. They have to look into neighborhoods, housing options, and schools among others, the Union-Tribune said.
People moving are also trying to spend less during the relocation process, the newspaper said.
One way to do that is to move themselves. Using moving trailers
or portable storage units
can be a cheaper alternative to hiring a moving company
