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

  • When is the best time to move to Austin?

    Heat and habits are two major factors when deciding when to move to Austin. In general, the heat breaks in late September or October, making those months much more comfortable for a move. If you want to relocate when there is the greatest chance of finding available leases, however, July is a good choice, with many families and students starting and ending leases at that time. If you choose to move in the summer, just make sure you hire professional movers who will be accustomed to moving heavy items in the heat, rather than trying to do the work yourself.

  • Who regulates the move?

    Regulations governing a move can vary depending upon the type of move you are making (i.e. Residential, military, international, etc.) and other factors. These rules exist to protect you. You deserve a mover who takes them seriously and who makes it their responsibility to comply with them. At Ward North American, our professional teams of movers seamlessly follow the regulations that apply to your move. We also listen to your special requests and make every effort to comply in order to create a smooth and stress-free relocation experience for you.

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

    You can expect to pay between $1,600 and $2,300 for a move between San Antonio and Austin. 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 San Antonio and Austin?

    The trip between San Antonio and Austin 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 Austin?

    Austin is a large city covering just over 271 square miles. Since public transportation and biking paths are not as developed there as in some other cities, you will need to own a car or live close enough to work to walk. As a result, the best place to live in the city is within an easy drive or walk to your job. In general, affordable yet up and coming locations are available on the east side of the city, so starting your home or apartment search there is a good choice.

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

    A drive of just over an hour from San Antonio to Austin 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?

    Rain, snow, and ice can make roads slippery and driving difficult. Damaged roads can be an obstacle in a move as well, and traffic jams can delay a trip. In order to avoid delays to your moving timeline, we carefully plan your route and, with your agreement, select the route that is most likely to deliver the prompt moving experience you deserve.

  • What to expect when moving from San Antonio to Austin?

    San Antonio has a lower cost of living than Austin, so prepare to spend more when you move. You will also have to give up the rich Tex-Mex food environment in San Antonio. However, Austin boasts a youthful, vibrant and diverse culture. You can expect to find a great music scene, lots of opportunities to spend time outdoors, and a thriving fine dining scene.
