Valuable Information for Moving to and Living in Albuquerque, NM.

We are dedicated to helping your move go as smooth as possible as we have more than 20 truck rental locations within the city limits of Albuquerque. To help even further, here is some useful information for you as you move to and explore Albuquerque.

  • Mile High – With an elevation of over 5000 ft, Albuquerque is nearly as far above sea level as Denver. If you’re coming in from sea level, be aware of the adjustment; you may become more winded than you expect as you move things around. If you’re going to need additional help to cope with this change, our MovingHelpers® have already been acclimated. They’ll be able to get you moved in without any problems.
  • Take a Ride – Or ‘a glide’ up the Sandia Mountains in a tramway car, one of the worlds longest aerial tramways by a single span. The Sandia Peak Tramway is the longest tramway in North America, and you will see endless miles of New Mexico landscape.
  • Route 66 – The old Route 66 passes through Albuquerque, and it actually crosses itself after a change in the roadways in 1937. Go check out the ‘vintage’ style buildings on Central Ave and Fourth Street.
