Austin long distance moving FAQs

Daryl Flood has 100,000+ square feet of warehouse space in Austin, and able to safely store your goods for short or long-term until you’re either ready for them to be delivered to your new home, or if you know you’ll be returning to Austin at some point, we’re able to store your items longer term. This is a service that is easy to add onto your move if the need arises.

The easiest way to stage your home is with furniture you already have! Typically, your home just needs to be de-personalized, and perhaps have a few pieces of furniture moved out temporarily. When staging your home, Daryl Flood is able to come in and remove and store these items short-term. Our team will then come back to complete the move and deliver all of your items at once to your new home.

Just ask your move coordinator about our declutter and store options, and they can get you some quick and easy pricing as part of your overall moving quote.

People often already have a desired moving date when reaching out for a long-distance moving quote.

Because of our large fleet size of over 85 tractor-trailers working year-round to move people long distance, we are typically able to meet most specific moving dates.

Of course, the best advice is always to schedule your long distance move at the earliest possible time, and we advise reaching out ideally four to six weeks in advance, and as early as three months ahead of time. March through September is generally peak moving season in Texas, as kids are out of school and the real estate market is heating up. If you expect to be moving around that time, we encourage you to reach out as soon as possible.

It is worth noting though, that the moving industry is like the airline industry, in that it is partially priced by capacity. This means that if you want to move on the last weekend of the month, for example, it could be more expensive. This is because so many people want to move on the last weekend of the month, it’s competitive. It can be a big budget saver if you’re flexible on your moving date and are willing to move on a day that is less popular.

Absolutely. Part of our team training is how to handle unique items such as large and heavy gym equipment, including tanning beds, and even home entertainment items such as a pool table or arcade games, or instruments such as pianos or cellos. The benefit of our four decades of experience is that we have moved nearly every item imaginable and have the playbook for how to do it safely.

We are also able to move delicate items, such as antiques, art or wine collections, among other items.
