Are you planning a move to Los Altos, CA? Welcome to the neighborhood! Los Altos is a city of less than 30,000 people, but it’s a major player in Silicon Valley.
In 2004, a Los Altos homeowner rented her $1 million, five-bedroom home to Mark Zuckerberg and his associates, and that’s where they grew Facebook from 200,000 users to 2.5 million. Twenty-eight years prior that that, Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first 50 Apple I computers in Jobs’s garage in Los Altos.

Moving is a process that starts with a dream home and ends with you living in it.
When you think of it that way, the tasks associated with moving seem less like chores and more like just a few items on a moving checklist.
If you’re planning a move to Los Altos, heed these tips from our partners at the Better Business Bureau and Stevens Worldwide Van Lines.
- Start with online research: Look up business profiles for moving companies on BBB.org. The American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) and California Moving and Storage Association also identify movers that have pledged to uphold high standards of trust and to resolve complaints quickly.
- Check out the company’s reputation: Ask for proof of licenses, insurance and references. Ask around on your social networks to get good advice from people who have recently moved.
- Get it in writing: Whether you get an estimate over the phone, over the internet, or via a video survey, it’s a good idea to get the details in writing. If any aspects of the move change, make sure that both parties agree to them in writing.
- Donate and declutter: Reducing weight will cut down on moving costs. Donate unwanted food items to a local food bank. Certain charitable items may be tax deductible.
- Use quality moving boxes: All Reasons sells moving boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper and other packing materials.
Moving to Los Altos
The name Los Altos means “the heights.” As with many other cities in Silicon Valley, Los Altos used to be filled with orchards. Nowadays, people have to visit a museum and historical site to get a glimpse of the fruit trees and imagine what the area looked like at the turn of the previous century.
Here are some highlights of Los Altos:
- The Los Altos History Museum is located in one of the few remaining apricot orchards of Santa Clara Valley. Docents can give a tour of the J. Gilbert Smith house, which is decorated in 1930s period furnishings, from a time when about 1300 people would have considered themselves residents of Los Altos. The city itself was incorporated in 1952.
- Downtown Los Altos: The city has a downtown and six other shopping districts. The six-block downtown has about 150 shops, including a hardware store and gem store. Monthly promotional events are planned, including sidewalk sales and a beer stroll. Check out the Downtown Los Altos website for more details.
- Admire the Art: Los Altos has more than 25 public art displays. Sculptures include an Australian Cattle Dog, Magic Fish and Dancing Man, all found near the community center. Pieces are loaned to the city for a period of two years. Here is a map to the public art in Los Altos.
