Texas Intrastate Moves
Moving across Texas is no small feat. Any move is a big undertaking, but when you realize that traveling from Texline (in the upper northwest) to Brownsville (on the western Gulf coast) is a 14-hour drive — and you’re still in the same state — it’s mindboggling.

Driving from El Paso to Beaumont, Texas, is nearly as long a drive as traveling from Dallas to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The more you think about it, Texas is practically its own country.
There are plenty of opportunities to pick up and move to a new city without leaving the state you love so much.

Where Are People Moving In Texas?
Business Insider reports that Frisco, near Dallas, is at the top of the list. More than 43 percent of homeowners have lived there for less than 10 years. Midland and Odessa are also popular, due to “black gold, Texas tea.” Oil.
The top cities for migration include:
- Austin-Round Rock
- San Antonio-New Braunfels
- Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington
- Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land
Further down on the list, but still ranking high in terms of welcoming newcomers, are Lubbock, Waco and San Angelo.
Why Are People Moving To Texas?
People move here for jobs, higher education and a lower cost of living compared with other big cities in the United States.
People can afford to buy homes in Texas, where $300,000 is more than enough to purchase real estate and put down some roots. That’s roughly half the cost of the median home price in Washington D.C., and significantly less than the median home price in California.
Beyond that, Texas is one of the most tax-friendly states in the country. You won’t have to pay state income tax, which means more money for recreation.
The Texas sports scene is fantastic. We have the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Astros, Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers and San Antonio Spurs.
The food! Each metro area has its own food culture.
Planning Your Texas In-State Move
When you’re planning an intrastate move, organization is key. A move of any type, whether its local or international, presents a long list of to-do items.
In addition to finding that perfect home, school and job, you have to actually pack up and move.
John Ferguson Moving & Storage offers full-service packing, and we have plenty of tips to help you, if you’re planning on packing yourself.
Here are just a few packing tips:
Create a moving checklist: Give yourself intermittent deadlines, to stay on track.
- Label everything: We recommend labeling boxes on the top and on the sides. Don’t forget to tape the bottom of boxes when you’re putting them together. This makes them more sturdy and less likely to fail on you.
- Designate a spot to keep your moving items: tape, boxes, box cutter, bubble wrap or packing paper. This way you won’t have to search for them when the time to pack comes.
- Don’t overload boxes. You’re more likely to drop a heavy box, and boxes that are overstuffed don’t stack well. Underpacked boxes are also a problem. Use packing paper to fill gaps and cushion items.
- Books are heavy. An easy way to transport them is to put them in a rolling suitcase (or several!)
