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

    • When is the best time to move to San Antonio?

      Moving to San Antonio generally works best when completed in the summer. At this time of year, there are more homes for sale, as more people choose to relocate at this time. In addition, you can move while the kids are out of school. The weather may be hot, but there isn’t as much rain in the summer, which can make it easier to move without damaging your belongings. If summer does not work, or if you cannot afford the higher mover prices in the summer, spring or fall also make good choices for a relocation.

    • 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 San Antonio?

      You can expect to pay between $1,300 and $4,900 for a move between Austin and San Antonio. Narrow that number down more once you know exactly how much you plan to move, whether you have items that require special care, and the distance between your current home and your new one. We can take into account all of your circumstances and provide you with a personalized estimate for your move.

    • Where to stop along the move between Austin and San Antonio?

      The trip between Austin and San Antonio is a very short hour and fifteen minutes. This easy drive does not typically require a stopover. However, if you do need to stop for fuel or food, our moving team can help set a predetermined location, perhaps in the traveler-recommend New Braunfels.

    • Where is the best place to live in San Antonio?

      San Antonio has many nice neighborhoods from which to choose. If you want to live near the downtown area, and if you are looking for a modern and trendy location, consider Southtown or or downtown, such as Broadway on the Rivera. Other nice neighborhoods to consider include Tobin Hill and The Pearl.

    • How long does it take to move from Austin to San Antonio?

      A drive of just over an hour from Austin to San Antonio makes a one-day move simple. However, the exact timeframe of your move will depend upon other factors as well. For example, you need to plan for time to pack your belongings, load the truck, and unload the truck at your new destination. Leaving items at storage may also require extra time. To help you plan with confidence, we will provide you with an accurate timeframe before the day of your move.

    • 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 San Antonio?

      One of the biggest benefits to moving from Austin to San Antonio is a significantly lower cost of living. You can still find plenty of things to do in San Antonio, as well as open outdoor space, but San Antonio will have a less hipster environment. Austin tends to have a much bigger restaurant and foodie scene, but San Antonio boasts a superb Tex-Mex food environment to enjoy.
