A Local Moving Quote You Can Count On
Some San Antonio moving companies may provide you with a moving estimate when you first hire them but add on extra charges or fees at the end of the moving process. That’s not how we do it at Daryl Flood, because we always give you a final, accurate estimate from the beginning. As long as the scope of your move doesn’t change, your quote won’t either.
To arrive at your moving estimate, we start with a visit from one of our experienced in-home estimators. Your quote will then be calculated based on how much your household goods weigh, the number of heavy items you may have, and which level of service you choose. Our estimator can also help you determine if a part-self-service, full-service, or hybrid service is best for your needs.
How to Choose the Best Local Movers in San Antonio
When you search online, you’ll see plenty of ads for the “best local movers in San Antonio,” but how can you tell which ones you can trust with your belongings and your budget?
The best way is to take the time to research various local moving companies and to take a few simple steps to learn more about them. Here are our tips for finding reliable household movers in San Antonio:
Seek Recommendations and Read Reviews
If you know someone who’s recently made a local move, ask them about their experience with the moving company they used. Even if they can’t recommend a company, they may be able to steer you away from one.
You can also check out websites devoted to consumer protection, such as the Federal Carrier Safety Administration’s site at protectyourmove.gov and the Better Business Bureau.
Lastly, spend a few minutes reading moving companies’ online reviews. You can look for testimonials on the companies’ websites but remember that those are likely to all be positive. For less biased reviews, head to Google.
Look for Certifications
Once you’ve pared down the list of companies you’re considering, check to see if they have any certifications and/or industry endorsements. You can look for some of the types of credentials we have at Daryl Flood, such as recognition from the Southwest Movers Association and certification from the American Moving & Storage Association as a ProMover.

Local San Antonio Moving Company FAQ
Most residential movers are busiest during the period when school is out of session, from about May through September. If you have to schedule your local move between late spring and early autumn, it's best to get your move booked as far in advance as possible. If your timeline is flexible, however, try to get on a local moving company's schedule about four to six weeks ahead of your desired moving date.
There are several things that can indicate the lack of reliability or legitimacy of a local household moving company, including:
- There's no company website or physical address.
- You're given an estimate without a moving company representative having done an in-person or virtual walkthrough.
- The company requires a large deposit before they've provided any services.
- You get a verbal quote but can't get a moving estimate in writing.
- The company requires you to pay in cash.
The most important reason is the protection of your belongings and your money. Rogue movers are notorious for luring in customers with cheap moving prices, then failing to abide by their initial estimates or, worse, holding off on delivering your household goods until you give them more money than you've already paid. In addition, unlicensed companies may damage or lose your belongings and leave you with no recourse against them.
At Daryl Flood, our focus is on safety, reliability, and value. Our company is licensed with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, and our crews are well-trained in how to carefully handle your belongings and prevent damage to your property. As our customer, you'll have experienced crews packing, moving, and unloading your items and the assistance of a dedicated move coordinator.
