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

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

      Moving from San Antonio to Houston will cost you between $1,300 and $4,900 on average. The precise cost of your moving expenses will be determined by a variety of factors, including the number of items you are moving and the number of specialty items that require special attention. We can provide you with a customized estimate based on your specific needs.

      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
    • When is the best time to move to Houston?

      Summers in Houston are extremely hot, with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. Consider moving in the winter, between the months of January and April, to enjoy mild weather. The average temperature this time of year is in the 60s, making it a pleasant environment in which to load and unload your belongings.

    • Who regulates the move?

      The regulations governing a move can differ depending on the type of move (residential, military, international, etc.) and other factors. These rules are in place to keep you safe. You deserve a moving company that takes them seriously and makes it their responsibility to follow them. Ward North American’s professional moving teams adhere to the regulations that apply to your move. We also listen to your special requests and make every effort to accommodate them in order to provide you with a smooth and stress-free relocation experience.

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

      The trip from San Antonio to Houston takes slightly more than three hours. It should not necessitate an overnight stay, but if you anticipate needing to stop along the way, your moving team can arrange for a predetermined location to rest. Schulenburg could be a good stop for food and fuel on the way.

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

      A three-and-a-half-hour drive is only a portion of the time required to complete your move from San Antonio to Houston. You must also account for the time it takes to pack your belongings, load the moving truck, and unload at your new residence. Add time to your schedule for trips to your storage facility if you cannot take certain items with you to your new location. We can take all of these factors into account and provide you with an accurate timeframe for your relocation.

    • Do road conditions affect moving?

      Rain, snow, and ice can cause roads to become slick and driving to become difficult. Damaged roads can also be an issue during a move, as can traffic jams. To avoid delays in your moving timeline, we carefully plan your route and, with your approval, choose the route that is most likely to provide you with the prompt moving experience you deserve.

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

      Moving from San Antonio to Houston means moving to a larger, more sprawling city. As a result, expect traffic jams and heavy rush hour traffic. Houston, on the other hand, has a lot to offer. For example, you may enjoy the city’s cultural diversity, delectable fine dining, numerous sports teams, and large airport.

    • Where is the best place to live in Houston?

      The best place to live in Houston is close to your workplace. The sprawling city of 669 square miles is notorious for heavy traffic during rush hour. If you choose a location far from your workplace, you could easily spend several hours commuting each day. After a few months of a long commute, even a peaceful suburb may not appeal. To find the best place to live in Houston for you, start by narrowing your search to the side of town where your job is located, then consider other factors to select your preferred neighborhood.
