A nicer way to move from California to Texas

Are you considering moving to one of the fastest-growing states in the country? Well, you wouldn’t be the only one. The number of people that live in Texas increased by 4 million in only a decade. And most of them were Californians.

On top of the lower cost of living and tax-free lifestyle that the West Coast brings, more and more people are attracted by The Lone Star’s employment rate, the number of companies moving there, and new job opportunities. Moreover, it is full of diverse cities where you can choose any lifestyle you want. If that sounds good enough to you, all that’s left is to get you there, and that’s where we come in!

At Roadway Moving we are experienced in moving Californians to Texas. Besides our 5 star rated moving service, we offer additional services to make your long distance move a great experience.

In case you need professional packing, short or long term storage, moving supplies or even a white glove moving service, we’ve got you covered!

Moving you from CA to any location in Texas, without subcontractors

#1 reason why people experience issues when moving long distance is that their moving company outsources the delivery to other transportation companies and therefore loses control over the stuff.

In a situation like that the moving company can’t know where the stuff is and when exactly it will be delivered.

That is why at Roadway Moving we have our own trailers and we do not outsource delivery to others.

We can move you directly from CA to any part of Texas and you can rest assured that your stuff will be GPS tracked during the whole move and delivered on time.

6 things to know when moving to Texas from California

Californians generally move to Texas because of the quality of life, relaxation, job opportunities, more affordable cost of living, and a friendly “howdy”.

But making such a big decision could still be stressful, and we know all about it. That is why we wanted you to have all the crucial information by putting together a go-to list you can always look at and help you make that decision.

Cost of living

Being 20% below the national average and still the fastest-growing state, Texas is setting some records. Along with having a significantly lower cost of living, the home of the Mavericks can save you some large amounts of money on taxes. This also got Apple’s and Google’s attention, making them move here next to some big company names like AT&T and American Airlines, which helped Texas rank as one of the fastest-growing economies.


Housing also makes a massive difference in these two states, with home prices in Texas being nearly 60% lower than in California. Overall average home value in California is around $750,000. It has increased by 20% in 2022 when compared to 2021, while Texas holds an average of $280,000. The rent for an apartment goes up to $2,000, while the average cost in Texas is around $1,000.

In general, mortgages and home costs are much lower in Texas. For example, the average home price in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is 45% lower than in Los Angeles.

Job opportunities

The best state for business, as we said, has a thriving economy that attracts new companies and some more prominent names in the game. Without income taxes, this might be the best place to live in. The number of job opportunities keeps growing by the day. Texas’s top industries are tourism, banking, education, oil, and agriculture.

Most newcomers move here because they got a new job or a remote option that allows them to work in a more relaxed environment.


As if all this wasn’t enough, Texas has great education opportunities. With a range of public and local schools, the ones taking the lead are Dallas, Ft. Worth, Arlington, University of Texas, and Rice University.

Over 200 colleges and universities have several majors and classes students can take.

Top 4 cities

  • Dallas takes the lead for all of you business owners out there. It is the best city to grow professionally, with the country’s fastest-growing market. Outdoor activities, education, sports, and entertainment are its secret weapon.
  • Austin is also known as the safest big city, ranking 5th most affordable. The capital of Texas also goes by the name of “Live Music Capital of the World”.
  • San Antonio Sea World, Six Flags, and the River Walk attract people from around the world to gather in San Antonio. It has that relaxing atmosphere, rich history, and a year full of festivals.
  • Houston is one massive pro sports club, home to most sports teams. Besides that, it has an excellent public education. It is right after NYC on the list of most Fortune 500 headquarters in one city. Being more affordable, it is a place newcomers easily choose when deciding on a city they’d like to move to.

Are you a sports fan? Moving to Texas will surely make you one. People in Texas get to watch some winning national sports teams like the Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Astros, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Houston Rockets, and Dallas Stars.
