Dallas local moving FAQs

You have your choice of hundreds of movers in the Dallas area, from full-service, well-known companies to a small crew with one truck. While it may be tempting to make a decision based on the lowest price, there’s a lot to consider when you’re preparing to trust a moving company with all of your belongings.

Here are some tips for how to make the choice that’s right for your needs:

  • Ask friends, family members, neighbors, and colleagues for recommendations based on their personal experiences with local Dallas moving companies. Ask people in your social media circles as well.
  • Check moving company reviews online. Although most companies are likely to have the occasional less-than-perfect review, most reviews should be overwhelmingly positive.
  • Visit consumer protection sites such as and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s

As you're researching residential moving companies in Dallas, these questions can help you determine which ones are the most reliable and professional:

  • How long has your company been in the moving business?
  • Do you do background checks on your employees?
  • What type of training do your employees receive?
  • How do you determine the price for a move?
  • What items are not included in your moving quote?
  • How would you handle my claim if something is missing or damaged?
  • How do you protect household belongings during the move or while they are in storage?

We have our Mover’s Interview Guide for this exact purpose – download it to keep with you while you call and vet local Dallas moving companies.

There are several things you can look for when choosing a local moving company. Cross companies from your list if you encounter these red flags:

  • If the company insists on full payment up front or asks to be paid in cash.
  • The company doesn’t do a video or visual survey to accurately assess how much your household goods weigh. This is needed for an accurate estimate.
  • The company doesn’t offer pricing transparency, which could result in hidden or last-minute fees and charges.
  • They can’t provide any insurance or DOT information, which proves they are a registered local moving company.
  • If you can’t find any long-standing online presence complete with third party customer reviews.

It might not be possible to schedule movers well in advance, but when it is, four to six weeks ahead of your desired moving date should be sufficient. Keep in mind, however, that there is a busy season for moving that coincides with the break between school years. If you plan to move between May and September, you will need to get on your preferred local mover’s schedule as far in advance as possible.

In general, a move is referred to as a local move when it’s made between two locations that are fewer than 50 miles apart.

A move from one location to another that is 50 or more miles apart but still in the same state is referred to as an "intrastate" move, while an "interstate" move is when a move crosses state lines. This comes up often in Texas, so it’s important to ask your moving company how they classify your move.

We make every effort to cover all the surfaces of your furniture to protect it during your move. We use a time-tested pad wrapping method, which includes wrapping your furniture in padded blankets and securing it with clear packing tape. We also use shrink-wrap, micro foam, padded paper wrap, and other materials as needed for additional protection.

When you have fragile items that need to be moved, we offer professional crating by coordinating with a trusted third-party crating service partner to build custom crates.

Our team will also apply door and floor protection where needed in your home to ensure it looks the same when we leave as it did when we first arrived.

We know that no matter how well our customers may have planned their moves, unexpected events can get in the way of a smooth moving process. With Daryl Flood as your local mover, you'll have the option to have us safely store your belongings in our secure Dallas warehouse. Whether you need storage for just a few days or for much longer, our storage solutions are ready when you are.

Our local moving services are flexible, so we can customize your move to meet your needs. We can pack your entire home or take care of packing only a few rooms where you need assistance. Your dedicated move coordinator will be glad to go over all your expert full and partial packing options.

Our team prides ourselves on flexibility and making the local moving process as easy as possible for you. Many local moving customers in Dallas would like to request a certain day, and because of our breadth of service and the size of our crews, we can typically accommodate those requests.

Our best advice is always to schedule your local move at the earliest possible time, and we advise reaching out ideally 3-4 weeks in advance for a local move, and as early as three months ahead of time. March through September is generally peak moving season in Dallas, 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 on the earlier side in order to secure your desired date.
