HeadingMoving To Baltimore – The Cross Country Moving Company Guide

Did you know that the city of Baltimore, Maryland has been nicknamed Charm City? If you have ever been there, this information probably comes as no surprise. With its breath-taking architecture and rich cultural history, it is no wonder so many people recognize its charm. Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Hamilton, John Waters, Billie Holiday, Babe Ruth all called this beautiful place their home. Why shouldn’t you?

If you are planning on moving to Baltimore, there are certain steps you need to take before your relocation. Read on to learn about some of the things you should know before you start packing.

Getting to Know BaltimoreHeading

The city of Baltimore was named after Cecil Calvert, second Lord Baltimore, who was the founding proprietor of the Province of Maryland. The word originally means “town of the big house”.
Baltimore is located in the north-central area of the state of Maryland, right on the Patapsco River. Due to its history, its architecture portrays several different styles from over two centuries. The streets of Baltimore form a grid, which makes it easier to get around. It is divided into nine geographical regions. Baltimore has the humid subtropical climate and four seasons.
A little over 600,000 people call Baltimore their home. Most people are African-American (around 63%) and white (around 29%). Asian, other races, and multiracial people make up for eight percent of the population. Most Baltimoreans are Catholics.
While crime rates in Baltimore are statistically high, crime is mainly limited to poorer areas of the city.

HeadingFinding the Right Neighborhood

Baltimore has over two hundred neighborhoods, all of them very distinct and unique. Picking the right one for yourself can prove to be quite a bit of a challenge. Since visiting (or even describing) all of the Baltimore neighborhoods would take an enormous amount of time, we have compiled a list of several neighborhoods we find the best.

Federal Hill. This neighborhood is perfect for young professionals climbing their way up the career ladder. It is mainly populated by singles and newly-wedded couples. It has a lot of bars, cafes, and restaurants. Many locally owned shops and the Cross Street Market can be found here as well. It is within walking distance from downtown, so if you are moving to Baltimore and do not have a car, this is a good place for you.
Otterbein. A good alternative for Federal Hill is its more peaceful neighbor, Otterbein. While the architecture really resembles the one in Federal Hill, this part of the city is populated mainly by middle-aged couples.
Guilford. One of the most popular neighborhoods among newcomers, Guilford is a well-maintained and clean area. Its large, elegant homes look warm and inviting. It also has several parks. It is a registered historic district, which also means that the prices are not quite low. This area is populated mostly by well-off professionals and their families.
Charles Village. This area is popular for its Victorian-style houses and a college-town vibe. It is a short distance away from the John Hopkins University, as well as the Baltimore Museum of Art. It is adjustable to any budget, given that it is a mixture of row houses, high rises, and reusable warehouse lofts. It is also culturally and racially diverse.
Waverly. Another culturally diverse neighborhood, Waverly, is perfect for raising a family. It is mostly populated by working and middle class families. The homes are affordable and the crime rates are low. It also has a great farmers’ market.

HeadingHiring a Moving Company

When moving to another state, it is of utmost importance to hire a reliable moving company. Things you should take into consideration when choosing your professional movers include moving companies’ reviews, moving quotes, as well as legitimacy. The best course of action would be to contact as many moving companies as possible and ask for their moving price estimates. Call Cross Country Moving Company representatives to get the best moving prices and the highest quality of service.

HeadingPacking Your Belongings

Once you have found the right moving company for you, it is time to start packing your belongings. Before you start doing this, consider the size of your new Baltimore home and decide which furniture to take with you accordingly. If there are any items you are sure you won’t need, why not organize a garage sale and make some money on the side?
Before you start wondering where to get moving boxes, we would like to inform you that Cross Country Moving Company offers professional packing services as well. In fact, our professional packers even provide their own moving supplies, so you won’t have to worry about that either. All you have to do is decide what you wish to take with you, and leave all the dirty work to our staff.

HeadingEnjoy Your New Home

Once you have finished packing (or once the packers have finished packing for you), the whole moving process is conducted by the moving company, so as to make your experience as pleasant as possible. All you have to do is get to Baltimore, and wait for the moving truck. If unpacking seems like a difficult task as well, let our professional packers help you with that too.
