      Austin moving tips

      The best defense against the stress of moving is preparation. The right moving company helps you create a plan and relieves the stress of relocating. When it comes to moving in Austin, you must also consider state regulations and when to book your move. We’ve got the answers to Austin’s top moving FAQs.

      What are the moving laws and regulations in Austin?

      Depending on the services they offer, different rules and regulations apply to moving companies. The state of Texas requires all moving companies to have a license from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV). To verify a company’s license, check the TxDMV database.

      Interstate or long-distance movers are also required to register with the U.S. Department of Transportation. Most long-distance moving companies list DOT numbers on their website. Visit the U.S. DOT website to verify a DOT number or look up a company's customer report history.

      Can I hire packing services in Austin?

      Yes, many companies in Austin offer packing services. When booking, look for a full-service mover. Full-service moves include packing, loading, transportation, unloading and unpacking, while labor-only moves are limited to loading and unloading. Expect to pay at least an additional $400 for packing services.

      What is the best time of year to move in Austin?

      The best time of year to move in Austin is between October and March. The heat isn’t as intense as it is during the summer months, and the demand for movers is lower. The most expensive and busiest time to move is during the summer. It’s the most convenient time for families to move because children are on summer break, which increases demand.

      Avoid moving in August — it’s the most popular time of year to move in Austin because University of Texas students are moving back to campus. Moving during peak times is more expensive, so schedule your move for early spring or late fall when there is less competition and more comfortable weather.

      Cost to hire movers in Austin

      The average cost to move a three-bedroom home locally in Austin is around $850 for a labor-only move. However, the total cost varies based on several factors, including how far you’re going and how much stuff you’re moving.

      Movers may charge additional stair, elevator or long-carry fees if you live in a multistory building in Downtown Austin, Central Austin or the neighborhood of West Campus. Larger homes in the Lakeshore Addition and the Island at Mount Bonnell Shores are likely to have more heavy furniture, which takes longer to load and unload. Anticipate higher moving costs if you live in these areas or other neighborhoods with larger homes.

      Expect to pay extra for services like packing, storage space and added insurance. Specialty moves for large or fragile items such as pianos and artwork also cost more, and you need to hire a skilled mover to avoid damaging your belongings. When you’re ready to look for a moving company, make sure you read online reviews from former clients and get multiple estimates.

      Cost for Austin long distance movers

      While local moving companies typically charge by the hour, long-distance companies use distance and pounds to calculate rates. The average price for a long-distance move ranges from $2,000 to $5,000.

      Weight is the most significant factor for long-distance moving costs. On average, moving companies charge $500 per 1,000 pounds. The distance doesn’t have quite the impact on price as weight, but the price increases about $75 per 100 miles.

      DestinationDistanceCost for a 3-bedroom house (5,000 pounds)
      Austin to Dallas195 miles$2,646
      Austin to Chicago 1,162 miles$3,372
