    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?

      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 San Antonio?

      Moving from Houston to San Antonio will cost an average of between $1,300 and $4,900. The exact cost of your moving expenses will depend upon many factors, such as the number of items you are moving and the number of specialty items that require attention. We can personalize an estimate for you based upon your unique circumstances.

      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 San Antonio?

      The trip between Houston and San Antonio takes just over 3 hours. It should not require an overnight stay, but, if you anticipate needing to stop during this drive, your moving team can arrange a predetermined location to take a break. A potentially good location to get food and fuel on the way is Schulenburg.

    • 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 Houston to San Antonio?

      A three-and-a-half hour drive is only part of the time it will take to complete your move from Houston to San Antonio. You will also need to add in the time it takes to pack your belongings, load the moving truck, and unload at your new home. Add additional time to your schedule for trips to your storage facility if there are items you cannot take with you to your new location. We can account for all these factors and provide you with an accurate timeframe for your relocation.

    • 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 San Antonio?

      San Antonio will cost less to live in than will Houston. Another major benefit of the Houston to San Antonio move is less traffic that makes San Antonio easier to get around in. Superb Tex-Mex cuisine can help to make up for the loss of fine dining establishments, while the relaxed atmosphere can be very pleasant to live in.
