Welcome to District of Columbia Movers

AKA Washington, D.C.

Originally known as the District of Columbia, the nation’s capital is now mostly referred to as Washington, District of Columbia. For short? Washington, D.C. For moving here, there are some important things to note besides being at the ready to shake hands with the President of the United States. (Hey, you never know who you’ll run into!)

Relocating to Washington D.C. - Being a New Resident

This district is unique in that it is a city that’s not a part of any state. Instead, Maryland and Virginia donated land to Congress to form this place. To relocate here, you’ll want to take note of the following steps:

Note: The DMV must obtain your vehicle title in order to have your vehicle registered.

Things Good to Know About Relocating to Washington D.C.

Weather: You’ll be relocating to a humid subtropical climate. This means you can expect a warm spring and autumn season and hot summers. The summer season has an average day of about 66% relative humidity, which often brings about thunderstorms and the occasional tornado.
Winter wise, the days are cold, with temperatures averaging at 48 degrees Fahrenheit. This area is hit with snow, but hardy blizzards only hit every 4 to 6 years.
Population & Cost of Living: Washington D.C. is home to almost 650,000 people. Many more commute from states like Maryland and Virginia to work here every day. Why do so many people commute? Cost of living.
Living here is just about as expensive as residing in New York City. The minimum amount for a single studio (to rent monthly) will be about $1,100 and, if you see apartments much cheaper, watch out. Low prices usually mean they are income restricted – read the fine print before applying for these places!
If political beliefs are important to your values, I recommend you do research before moving as certain neighborhoods are far more liberal or conservative than others. Whichever neighborhood you choose, if you plan to buy rather than rent, median home prices here are $443,000.
Demographically, the population here is split almost evenly between Caucasians (43.4%) and African-Americans (49.5%).
Employment Rate & Economy: Being the nation’s capital, relocating here means your most likely employer will be the federal government. The District of Columbia is the heart of every branch of the federal government – the Congress (Legislative), President (Executive) & Supreme Court (Judicial). You may not be a Supreme Court judge, but there are thousands upon thousands of other jobs related to these positions and the government’s core.
Besides the federal government, some of the top employers include Medstar Health, Inova Health System, Northrup Grumman, Science Applications International Corp., McDonald’s, Booz Allen Hamilton, Marriott International, Inc., Verizon and Lockheed Martin Corp.
