New Housing Development is Making Waves in San Diego

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

New housing developments in populated areas such as San Diego tend develop on the outskirts of the city. Not so with Civita. A mixed-use development springing up in Mission Valley, Civita promises to be a sustainable and self-sufficient development. The goal is develop a dense neighborhood that promotes walking, public transportation and community. The project is attempting to attract 5,000 new residents with a variety of single family homes and its location in the city of San Diego.

Promoted as the alternative to suburban sprawl, Civita calls for walkability and mass transit solutions. A Nearby trolley will give residents access to the rest of San Diego and a pedestrian bridge will cross Friars road. Trails and easily walkable roads will help foster a community that chooses sustainable living solutions over the nightmarish traffic of Mission Valley.

Civita marks the beginning of new developments in infill development. By creating dense pockets within cities instead of continually building away from city centers commuting becomes easier and more businesses will develop within the city limits.

Sustainable energy is also a key factor for this community. Technology like solar panels on the carport and local energy storage make the development a greener place to live. The housing at Civita continues to turn heads of both city planners and new home buyers.

You’ve decided you want to move to the San Diego area and Civita seems perfect. The benefits seem great and the location even better but how are you going to get all your stuff from your new home? Whether you’re coming from across the country or across the street, we can help get you moved efficiently and carefully. Contact us for information about our San Diego moving services.

Mandatory Water Use Fines Up for Consideration in California

Friday, July 11, 2014

Airtalk on Southern California Public Radio recently aired a story regarding California's consideration of mandatory water fines. We here in the San Diego area could be seeing some tougher regulations on our water use coming up in the near future. If you’re moving to the San Diego area it’s a good idea to keep on top of this issue especially if you’re moving in to a place that has a larger lawn or will need more watering than normal. As the water restrictions grow tighter so does the ability to maintain your lawn. If you are coming into the area and are looking for movers to make the move go smoothly contact us for top quality moving services.

Hi Jim:

Thought it appropriate to send you a note to tell you how happy my husband and I are with the service we received not only from Oakley Relocation, and also from North American Van Lines.

Everything went like clockwork since the first time you walked in our door on Daisy Avenue in San Diego. Never was there a glitch, a problem of any kind. We were treated with respect throughout and were impressed and pleased with the spirit of team work from Oakley and North American. You guys were absolutely great.

Thank you for everything. It was a pleasure doing business with you, Oakley and North American.

Great San Diego Move

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Ladies and Gentlemen:

It is with delight that we are writing this letter to you in regards to the superior service we received during our recent move from San Diego to Ogden, Utah on October 1, 2013. 

Most of our furnishings are Asian antiques with intricate and delicate details throughout.  We realized they were vulnerable but were reassured from the outset by the Oakley Relocation representative, Jim Wilkinson, that our items would receive the gentlest of care.  On moving day, the North American driver/team lead, Johnny Rosario again reassured us that we were in very caring hands.

Jim Wilkinson made the statement that “you will be amazed at how respectfully and carefully the movers are… they are professionals.” That statement proved true!

 From our first encounter with Jim to the subsequent calls and meetings for advice on packing, Jim was courteous, professional, and thorough.  He took time explaining every step of the move and what we needed to do to make the move successful.  His attention to detail and professionalism stood out remarkably from the other three moving companies that provided estimates for our move.  Jim provides excellent customer service.

When moving day arrived, Johnny Rosario and his team (Fernando Dominguez, and Dean Keaton) showed up precisely as scheduled, friendly, eager and energetic beyond imagination!  Johnny announced that we were all a team and was skilled at providing direction.  It was obvious how much respect each of the team had for Johnny and that respectful team included us!  We were treated to the same terrific treatment on the delivery end as well.

We are both professionals in senior management and we can spot skilled leadership.  We are inspired to write this letter to comment on Johnny’s natural flair for leading in a calm and professional manner.  His professionalism, friendly style, reassurance, and ability to manage a stressful situation while putting us at ease are remarkable.

Our move went without a problem from my first phone call to Oakley in San Diego to the final departure of the North American Van from our new home in Ogden.

A sincere “Thank you!” and “Wow!”  What an awesome job your company and staff did.  Please recognize your movers well.  We applaud their dedication.  Attached are photos of Johnny and his team during the offload in Ogden. Left to right: Dean Keaton (on ground); Fernando Dominguez; Johnny Rosario; Covis Law (Ogden-based contract mover)

Most sincerely,

Dr. Pamela Chapman
