Our top moving tips when moving to Arlington

At just 26 square miles in size, compared to New York’s City’s 302 square miles, Arlington may be smaller geographically but it’s large on key livability measures.

There is much to recommend about moving to Arlington and a few drawbacks to have on your radar before you arrive including:

  • Travel time. Plan for a longer commute than usual if you’re driving, as Washington DC’s notoriously bad traffic spreads into Arlington. For those planning to drive into the District daily for work, give yourself ample travel time. Alternatively, the capital’s Metrorail extends in Arlington while the Virginia Railway Express has a stop at Crystal City. There’s also a growing cycle culture due to recent accessibility improvements by the local government while New Yorkers moving to Arlington will love the walkability of neighborhoods such as Rosslyn and Clarendon. For trips further afield, the closest airport to Washington DC is based in Arlington, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
  • Stable jobs market. Perhaps best known as home to the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetary, this County attracts hundreds of government and military employees and coincidentally has the lowest unemployment rate in the state of Virginia. The US Departments headquartered here include the Department of Defence, Marshalls Service, Trade and Development Agency and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Regular population turnover is to be expected also, as some residents move to the county to work for a particular administration and move on after 4 or 8 years when their employer is out of office. However there is also a growth story in this economy, highlighted by the opening of Amazon’s HQ2 in Arlington, adding an additional 25,000 jobs to the area.
  • Stay fit. Arlington has been ranked one of America’s healthiest and fittest communities and is home to one of the largest 10 mil road races in the world, the Army Ten Miler. It has an abundance of parks, trails, indoor fitness options and a growing cycling culture. Many of its parks are also dog friendly with fenced off areas, like Shirlington Dog Park, Fort Ethan Allen Dog Park and Towers Dog Park so your fur baby can stay in great shape too.
  • Rich in History. You can’t visit Arlington Cemetery and not be moved, with sites like the Tomb of the Unknown soldier, President John F Kennedy’s grave and the US Marine Corps War Memorial among the landmarks on its 624 acres. Arlington also has more than 70 historic sites and buildings on the National Register which attract thousands of visitors each year, including Fort Myer, home to the Army’s oldest active infantry regiment, and the oldest house in the county, Ball Sellers House dating to 1760.
  • Quality Education. Arlington residents in search of higher education have close proximity to George Mason University, Marymount University, Strayer University and The Art Institute of Washington. However the county takes all levels of education seriously, spending almost half of all its local revenues on education. There are 22 elementary schools, 6 middle schools and 3 high schools in the county, with additional Catholic education options. According to recent figures Arlington’s average school test scores are 25% higher than the national average.
  • Arts & Culture. From outdoor festivals to family friendly shows at the Lubber Run Amphitheatre you’ll have little time to miss Central Park with hundreds of events in the County each year. Arlington is home to galleries, theatres, arts centres and museums including the Signature Theatre and the Arlington Arts Centre. Many of the county’s urban villages, as they are known, also run their own local events, like the Madison Civic Association’s Halloween bonfire, Easter egg hunt and parades.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
