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

    • When is the best time to move to Houston?

      Houston has very hot summers, with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. In order to enjoy mild weather, consider moving in the winter, between the months of January and April. The average temperatures during this time of year are in the 60s, creating a comfortable environment in which to load and unload your belongings.

    • Who regulates the move?

      Your move may be guided by any number of regulations, depending upon the type of move it is (i.e. Residential, interstate, etc.), how you are moving (i.e. Personal or military), who you choose to move you (i.e. Self move or hiring movers) and other factors. However, at Ward North American, our professional teams of movers are aware of and in compliance with all applicable regulations. As a result, you do not need to worry about whether or not we are following all requirements during the move. We will take care of every detail. In addition, we are always happy to comply with any special requests or instructions you may have regarding your move.

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

      The average move between Dallas and Houston costs between $1,300 and $4,900. The cost for your specific move will depend upon a number of factors. For example, the exact distance between your old and new homes can affect your moving expenses, as can the number of belongings you plan to move and whether you have items that require special care or not. We can evaluate the circumstances around your move and provide you with a personalized estimate.

      Studio Apartment 1 Large Bedroom 2 Bedrooms 3 Bedrooms 4 Bedrooms
      $1,300 to $1,620 $1,450 to $2,455 $1,620 to $3,100 $2,000 to $3,432 $2,690 to $4,902
    • Where to stop along the move between Dallas and Houston?

      The trip between Dallas and Houston is three-and-a-half hours. Chances are that you will want to stop along the way for refreshment and/or fuel. If you anticipate needing to take a break along the way, our moving teams can arrange a predetermined location for a stop. The halfway point between the two cities, and a potentially good place to take a break, is Centerville.

    • Where is the best place to live in Houston?

      In Houston, the best place to live is close to your job. The sprawling city covers 669 square miles, and is known for having heavy traffic during rush hours. You could easily commute several hours a day if you pick a location far from your job. Even a peaceful suburb may not appeal after a few months of a long commute. In order to find the best place to live in Houston for you, narrow your search to the side of the city where your job is located, then consider other factors to choose your preferred neighborhood.

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

      Houston is a three-and-a-half hour drive from Dallas. While the drive is one factor in the length of your move, you will also need to account for other factors when establishing your timeframe. For example, packing your belongings, loading the truck, and unloading it at your new home will also take time. Allow us to establish an accurate timeframe for your move in order to help you plan with confidence.

    • Do road conditions affect moving?

      Road conditions can affect the efficiency and timing of a move. For example, bad weather or traffic jams can delay the trip between your old location and your new one. Damaged roads can also be an obstacle to a move. In order to prevent these issues, our moving team will plan their route ahead of time. Together with you, they will establish a reliable and efficient route to achieve a seamless relocation.

    • What to expect when moving from Dallas to Houston?

      Both large, sprawling Texas cities, Dallas and Houston do still have differences for which you will need to prepare when you relocate. For example, Dallas has a lower cost of living than does Houston, so expect to spend more once you move to Houston. Look for cultural diversity, bad traffic, a large airport for convenient travel, and some truly delicious fine dining establishments.
