    FAQs

    Have more questions about moving? Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions.

    • When is the best time to move to Dallas?

      According to a survey of Dallas homeowners, and the patterns of home buying in the city, spring is the best time of year to move. In particular, May and June are popular months, thanks primarily to comfortable weather that time of year. If you cannot move in the spring, summer is also a good time of year to relocate to the Dallas area.

    • Who regulates the move?

      Depending upon the type of move you undertake (i.e. Interstate, international, military, etc.), and other factors, such as whether or not you hire movers, your move may be guided by certain rules and regulations. These rules are in place to protect you, the mover. It is the responsibility of your mover to understand and comply with the regulations that apply to your situation. At Ward North American, we are familiar with and in compliance with the regulations governing every move. We will also comply with any special instructions you may have to ensure your peace of mind during the move.

    • What is the average cost of moving from Austin to Dallas?

      The average cost of a move from Austin to Dallas is between $1,800 and $2,600. The exact cost of your move will depend upon the exact distance between your current home and your new home, the number of belongings you have to move, specialty items that require extra care, the addition of services such as packing, and more.

    • Where to stop along the move from Austin to Dallas?

      You may find it necessary to stop during the 3-hour trip between Austin and Dallas for fuel, a break, or a meal. You will probably not need to stop overnight since the drive can easily be completed in one day. Waco makes a convenient location for stopping, since it is almost exactly halfway between the two cities. We will always set a predetermined location for any necessary stops along the way.

    • Where is the best place to live in Dallas?

      Job proximity is always a wise consideration when looking for a place in Dallas. However, the vibrant downtown area also deserves consideration, whether you work there or not. In order to access everything downtown has to offer, without actually living downtown (and paying downtown prices) you may want to consider living in East Dallas. This area is safe and provides easy access to the center of the city.

    • How long does it take to move from Austin to Dallas?

      The length of your move will depend upon a number of factors, such as the time it takes to pack your belongings, load the truck, drive to your new location, and unload the truck. It may also take extra time to drop items off at a storage facility. Once your belongings are packed and the truck is on the way, the drive to Dallas should only take about 3 hours. When we meet with you to discuss your move, we will provide you with an accurate timeframe for your relocation from Austin to Dallas.

    • Do road conditions affect moving?

      Certain road conditions can affect the timing of your move. Depending upon the severity, for example, snow, ice, and rain can make the move more difficult. Traffic can also slow the trip, and your moving schedule. In order to avoid these problems, we will evaluate our route options ahead of time and select a route that allows for an efficient and seamless relocation.

    • What to expect when moving from Austin to Dallas?

      When you move to Dallas from Austin, you can expect to encounter a more upscale and conservative culture than you will find in Austin. The flatter terrain and hotter weather may also take some getting used to. Expect to find a car-friendly city with better traffic patterns and fewer traffic jams than Austin (but less of a cyclist community), as well as a more professional feel.
