North American Van Lines: The Best of Santa Maria Moving Companies
Located in sunny southern California, Santa Maria is a beautiful city with lots to offer residents in the Golden State. The city is located in the heart of California's Central Coast, which includes some lovely landscapes, excellent wineries and other amenities that contribute to a high quality of life.
According to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, there are more than 101,000 residents living in Santa Maria, so the city is small enough to enjoy a laid-back atmosphere. City-Data's most recent statistics reveal that the city is growing at a fast pace. From 2000 to 2012, Santa Maria's population jumped by 31 percent.
Santa Maria enjoys a diverse workforce with a good mix between the agricultural industry coming from the local wineries and a steady stream of manufacturing jobs. There is also the Vandenberg Air Force Base nearby, which also employs many residents in Santa Maria.

One of the best things about living in Santa Maria is enjoying the city's wonderful viticultural and dining options. There are several wineries located near the city including Byron Vineyard and Winery, Cambria Estate Winery, Presqu'ile Winery, Lucas and Lewellen Vineyards and Red Carpet Winery. Santa Maria is also known for its unique style of barbecue, and some of the best places to taste these local flavors are The Hitching Post (which was made famous in the movie "Sideways"), The Far Western Tavern and A.J. Spurs.
If you love the great outdoors, you're in luck in Santa Maria, as the city is home to several beautiful green spaces including Los Flores Ranch Park, which offers 8 miles of hiking, equestrian and mountain biking trails. If you really want to explore, there is also Figueroa Mountain, which is covered with beautiful flora and fauna during the spring.
Moving to Santa Maria
California's Highway 1, which runs along the coast, and U.S. Highway 101 both criss-cross through Santa Maria if you are taking to the open road during your relocation. However, if you would rather opt for vehicle transportation, you can hire a Santa Maria moving company to handle all of those little details of your move. The city is home to it's own terminal, Santa Maria Public Airport District, if you need to fly in. With North American Van Lines, you can enjoy even more services during your relocation including help with packing, cleanup and disassembly and assembly.
