Moving to Albany

Moving to Albany is attractive for many reasons, one of which is Albany’s proximity to all of what Oregon has to offer.  Portland is 75 minutes to the north, Bend is 2.5 hours to the east, and the coast is 90 minutes to the west.  Albany is home to many manufacturing companies and an historic downtown.  Crossing the Willamette River into North Albany, you will find sprawling homes, farms, and Albany’s Country Club. Albany is the best of both worlds–you can stay home and enjoy what’s in your own backyard, or venture out into Oregon’s diversified landscape.

West Albany High School’s 98% graduation rate makes it one of the finest high schools in Oregon.  Living in Albany means having the well respected Linn-Benton Community College in your community and being a mere 10 miles from the prestigious Oregon State University.  In fact, many OSU students move to Albany due to its lower rental property prices.

Relocating to Albany is a safe real estate investment with a median sale price of $335,000, which is up 7% from the previous year.  Samaritan Health Services, ATI, and the Greater Albany School District are the three largest employers in the Albany area.  Health care jobs are abundant due to Albany’s close proximity to Corvallis, Salem, and Portland Hospitals.

Wondering what weather to expect in Albany? Like much of the Pacific Northwest, the city gets more rainfall than the national average and fewer sunny days. However, despite the frequently overcast skies, the average temperature usually stays above freezing, so the city only gets about 2 inches of snow per year. The best time to visit Albany is during July and August when the temperature reaches the high 70s and low 80s with less cloud coverage.

Moving often comes with a need for storage. There are times during the moving process that you may need to utilize a storage facility for your belongings.  Maybe you have to de-clutter a home before putting it up for sale. Or, maybe you are taking temporary residence until your new home is ready for occupancy.

Cal’s Moving Help warehouse will store your goods while in-between homes. Here’s how it works:

  • Your goods are transported to our warehouse.
  • We pallet the goods and place them in the warehouse.
  • At your request, we break down your pallet, load them into the truck, and meet you at your new house.

Whatever your storage needs, big or small, short term or long term, we will fulfill them.  Rest assured, your items will be kept in a secure and protected place, and they are available to you at your convenience.
