Our top moving tips when moving to Austin, TX

Making your way to Austin will have you feelin’ the heat. The winter weather just isn’t the same in this part of the south. It’s largely mild with temperatures that range between 40 and 70 degrees F (Fahrenheit).

Snowfall isn’t common, so your city snow boots may not be necessary to take with you. Keep your umbrellas though, because average rainfall is about 36 inches a year and is heaviest in May, June, and October. Spring and fall are pretty pleasant weather-wise, but summers are very hot. The cooler temps in the summer months are around 70F whereas the highs will be closer to 100F.

Austin is home to 961,855 million residents and counting, so you won’t be alone in your search for ways to cool off in the southern heat. As you acclimate to warmer temps, here’s a few more details to know about your new Texas home:

  • Cost of living. The cost associated with living in Austin is slightly higher than the average for Texas state and nationally. The biggest contributing factors are housing and transportation costs. In terms of the types of housing, the average rent for an apartment in the city is about $1,735 for about 862 square feet. It’s not cheap, but coming from NYC it’s worth it to put that cost in perspective; compare it to NYC’s average rent of $4,265 for about 702 square feet. So, you’ll be getting a lot more for your money. For those in the market for purchasing a home, the median listing cost for a house is around $595,000. Again, not a small number, but cheaper than purchasing a home in many parts of the five boroughs. Commuting to and from your new location may also be on your mind. Plenty of people drive personal vehicles, but if you’re hoping to take advantage of public transportation there are some affordable options. CapMetro offers commuter bus and rail service throughout the downtown and greater Austin area. Single rides for bus services start at $1.25. The MetroRail that runs between Leander, a nearby suburb to downtown Austin during the week offers rides that start at $3.50. Of course, you may decide to opt for rideshare services or rent a scooter or e-bike to get around that are available in the area.
  • Neighborhood flavors. If you’re worried you’ll miss out on great eats after leaving the city, you need not be. Get ready to peruse the Austin neighborhoods of this city for your favorite bbq joints and taquerias. Austin is full of both. To get you started, many folks recommend making a stop (or a few) at Franklin BBQ on E. 11th Street There, you’ll get the well-known Texas barbeque fare, which includes slow smoked, pit-style brisket, pork ribs, and sausage. When you’ve gotten your fill of the smoked meats, another must-have are some tacos to take you through morning to night. Start your day with some breakfast tacos at Veracruz All Natural. For meat eaters and veg-heads alike, try out Nixta Taqueria in East Austin for delicious tacos, tostadas, and natural wines. That’s not all there is though. If you need a brief break from these dishes, there’s plenty to choose from. For instance, you can make a stop at Ramen Tatsu-ya where they take a humble bowl of noodles very seriously, but have some fun with their Tiki themed location next door, Tiki Tatsu-ya in South Austin.
  • City slickers in the outdoors. Whether you’re always ready to check out a new greenspace or are hoping to find a great place to cool off in the Austin heat, you’ll several spots worth discovering. A great place to rent a watercraft for a boat day is on Austin’s Lady Bird Lake. Don’t judge it because it’s not actually a lake (it’s officially a reservoir created by damming off part of the Colorado River). Zilker Park is another great spot, where you can get in a few rounds of disc golf, play volleyball on its courts, or even visit the park’s botanical garden. The crown jewel of this park is Barton Springs pool, a natural attraction fed by underground springs makes for a fantastic place to take a dip in the hot weather. And, because it stays around 68-70F, it’s comfortable enough for swimming all year round. Now, if you’re looking to make the rounds at another greenspace with opportunities for hiking, bird watching, and swimming, you’ll also want to check out the Barton Creek Greenbelt.
  • Key Industries and employment: There’s a lot of reasons beyond employment that bring people to Austin. However, some may want to be aware of the industries in the area that keep the city moving and thriving. A good place to start in understanding the landscape is the median household income. It’s currently at $80,954 which is higher than Texas as a whole and the country. In terms of weekly wages, the average comes out to about $1,418, which again is higher than the national average weekly wages of $1,021. So where are these wages being earned? The key industries in the area include Advanced manufacturing; Clean technology; Creative and Digital Media; Data management; Financial service and Insurance; Life Sciences; and Space Technology. Several major employers also have regional and national headquarters in Austin, such as Dell, Indeed, Apple, Yeti, Whole Foods, Home Depot, IBM, Oracle, eBay, Charles Schwab, and VISA.
  • Live music capital of the world. If you can’t think of a better way to spend your day or evening than going to a concert, then this city is for you. Maybe you were already familiar with Austin City Limits at Moody theater — it’s the longest-running music series in TV history. With that as a starting point, maybe you won’t be surprised that Austin is full of live music of many genres, with 250 venues over its many bars, clubs, coffeehouses, and concert halls. If soul and blues has the rhythm that moves you, The Skylark Lounge may be just the spot for you. Can’t decide whether you enjoy music better indoors or outside? With stages inside and out in the elements, Mohawk regularly has music performances to fill their events calendar. And there’s more! For those feeling festive and wanting to enjoy tunes for days, this city hosts a number of big music festivals. Including the Austin City Limits Festival and South by Southwest, a 10-day event that features music, film, and technology that brings in throngs of visitors each year.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

  • star star star star star

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

  • star star star star star

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

  • star star star star star

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

  • star star star star star

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

  • star star star star star

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
