What to know about moving in Fremont

How much does it cost to hire movers in the Bay Area?

Moving prices largely depend on how far you’re moving. For a local move (a move under 100 miles), you’ll usually pay somewhere between $550 and $2,000 whereas a long-distance move (a move over 100 miles) can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $12,000. Prices can go up for both types of move if you hire your movers to pack or handle other specialty services.

Here are some of the other factors that can raise or lower your moving price:

  • How much stuff you have to move (shipment weight)
  • The time of year you move
  • How far ahead of time you book with your moving company

Each of these factors will be completely unique to your move, so the precise cost is impossible to nail down until you get a personalized moving estimate from a moving company.

And here’s a pro tip: get estimates from more than one company. Some moving companies are cheaper than others, and the only way to know for sure which ones will be cheapest near you is to get estimates from as many of them as possible. Luckily, most movers give free moving estimates.

How many people live in Fremont?

With a 2022 population of 251,007, Fremont is one of California’s largest cities,1 though it is smaller than several other Bay Area giants like San Francisco, Irvine, and Oakland. However, unlike some Bay Area cities where growth rates are stagnating, Fremont is growing by an impressive 1.33% annually.1

What items cannot be moved by movers?

Contrary to what you might expect, you actually can’t hire professional movers to pack, load, or transport literally every item you have in your home. For safety and liability reasons, each mover has a unique list of items they won’t handle or transport. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of items that movers can’t move for you:

  • Fertilizers and pesticides
  • Aerosols
  • Fuel tanks
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Batteries
  • Fireworks and explosives

Additionally, some movers can transport things like pianos, live plants, and motorized equipment while others can’t. When you get your moving estimate, be sure to ask your movers if they’ll move any items you’re unsure about.

Check out our guide to items your movers can’t move to learn more.

How much do utilities cost in California?

Unlike home prices and rental rates, California has some of the lowest utility bills in the country. On average, a resident of The Golden State pays $326.88 a month for their electricity, internet, natural gas, and water.2
