Moving to Tehachapi

The origins of Tehachapi go back to the ancient Kawaiisu Native American tribe who still has settlements here and in surrounding communities. The city was incorporated in 1909 and rests about 35 miles southeast of Bakersfield along the Barstow-Bakersfield Highway 58. It is a small and comfortable town covering only about 10 square miles.

The current Tehachapi population hosts about 13,000 people. In an area with limited school options, the city is a more common home to married couples whose children have already moved out (about 70% of households). But the area offers comfortable living arrangements for a wide variety of lifestyles.

Moving to Tehachapi? Mentors Moving & Storage completes more than 1,200 relocations every year thanks to our friendly and reliable staff. As the top-rated Tehachapi moving company, we strive to provide each and every customer with exceptional service and a stress-free transition process.

Even though it’s a small area, there are a couple of specific Tehachapi neighborhoods worth looking into if you plan on living there. Bear Valley is on the west side of town and offers a guard-gated community. Another great option to check out around town is the neighborhood of Stallion Springs.

Wondering if there are any fun things to do in Tehachapi? Once a busy train station that brought thousands of people through the city, Tehachapi Depot has been converted into a unique and interesting museum with numerous exhibits. Another great option is Philip Marx Central Park, which offers gorgeous, green scenery for picnics, while people who enjoy camping can head south to Tehachapi Mountain Park for some clean and comfortable campgrounds.

The city has its own Tehachapi Unified School District, which includes primary schools like Cummings Valley Elementary, Golden Hills Elementary, and Jacobsen Middle School. The area’s only high school is Tehachapi High. And high school grads who plan to stay in the area can attend Cerro Coso Community College, the lone secondary school in town.

If you’re interested in Tehachapi jobs, the city’s largest employer, located about 10 miles west of downtown, is the California Correctional Institution with nearly 2,000 correctional officers and other administrative staff. The local school district provides about 500 jobs to teachers and other educators in the area. And the Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley hospital is the third largest employer in town with almost 200 medical personnel.

Tehachapi weather is the definition of a comfortable California climate. You’ll enjoy summer highs that average in the upper 80s with lows in the mid-50s. Winters require little more than a warm jacket with temperatures hovering between the 30s and 50s, with about 11 inches of annual rainfall.
