    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?

      Wondering about regulations that may govern your move? Let us take care of all applicable rules so you can focus on a successful relocation. Our professional teams of movers are familiar with and in compliance with every regulation that applies to your move, whether you undertake a residential, corporate, international, long-distance, or military move. We also listen to and comply with your special requests and instructions to accomplish your move as seamlessly as possible.

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

      The average move between Houston and Dallas 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 Houston and Dallas?

      The trip between Houston and Dallas 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 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 Houston to Dallas?

      Dallas is a three-and-a-half hour drive from Houston. 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 moving, if not properly accounted for during planning. Bad weather, like rain and snow, for example, can lead to slippery road conditions that make driving slower. Traffic can also slow things down. Before your move, we will carefully plan your route and, with your agreement, choose the route that has the best chance of delivering a successful and seamless move.

    • What to expect when moving from Houston to Dallas?

      You might save some money when you move to Dallas from Houston. A lower cost of living does not mean a lower quality of life, however. Dallas boasts strong career opportunities and slightly better traffic than Houston. The presence of several sports teams, as well as the presence of changing seasons and good weather, also make Dallas stand out as a good choice when you have to leave Houston.
