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?

    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 Houston?

    Moving from San Antonio to Houston will cost an average of between $1,900 and $2,600. 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.

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

    The trip between San Antonio and Houston 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 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 San Antonio to Houston?

    A three-and-a-half hour drive is only part of the time it will take to complete your move from San Antonio to Houston. 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?

    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 Houston?

    When you move from San Antonio to Houston, you are moving to a larger, more sprawling city. Expect traffic jams and lots of rush hour traffic as a result. However, Houston has much to offer. You may, for example, enjoy the city’s cultural diversity, delicious fine dining, plentiful sports teams, and large airport.
