Moving Silicon Valley

May 28, 2021

Silicon Valley includes Santa Clara County, San Jose County, as well as the southern bay regions of Alameda and San Mateo counties. Its name is derived from the dense concentration of electronics and computer companies that sprang up there since the mid-20th century, silicon being the base material of the semiconductors employed in computer circuits. The economic emphasis in Silicon Valley has recently partly switched from computer manufacturing to research, development, and marketing of computer products and software.

San Jose is Silicon Valley’s largest city, the third-largest in California; other major Silicon Valley cities include Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Redwood City, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Cupertino.  Palo Alto is often referred to as the intellectual center of Silicon Valley and is home to Stanford University.

Since the start of the pandemic there has been a lot of publicity about companies and people moving out of the Silicon Valley, however, considerably moves over the past year have been from one location in the Silicon Valley to another.  Muva assigns your quote request to local Silicon Valley movers who have expert knowledge of moving into and out of homes specifically within your area of the Silicon Valley region.
