San Antonio local moving FAQs
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
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 Trucking Association (ATA) as a ProMover.

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 as soon as possible 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 (more than 50%) 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.
Daryl Flood has 500,000 square feet of warehouse space locally in Texas, with a warehouse locally in San Antonio, and we are ready and able to safely store your goods for short or long-term until your new home is ready. Our Declutter and Store program is a service that is easy to add onto your future move, and increasingly popular as more people understand the value of staging their homes.
If your items are with us, you can also rest easy knowing your belongings are safe in our secure moving storage facility, 24/7-video monitoring service and first-rate fire suppression system.
