Moving from Boston to Austin

Moving from Boston to Austin

Sunny, warm, and culturally diverse, Austin is attracting thousands of people each year.

It is becoming one of the most popular destinations in the country. Whether you’ve decided to relocate for a new job, school, or just a fresh start, you will find Austin a very welcoming place. Moving from Boston to Austin requires a good plan. Before you start packing, check out this concise guide for helpful insights about the city and the moving process itself.

What should I know before moving to Austin?

Austin is home to almost one million inhabitants, which is larger than the population of Boston. However, you won’t feel that you moved to a crowded city, mainly because of its vastness. Just to give you an idea, Austin’s land area is 8 times larger than that of Boston.

Due to the spread-out layout of the city, you might have to commute to work, and that a car is going to be necessary to get you from point A to B. This is especially important since the public transportation in Austin is not nearly as developed as in Boston.

The cultural diversity in Austin has been gradually increasing. A prominent place in the ethnic mosaic of the city is held by Hispanics, who make up over a third of the residents. The increasing Asian influence has resulted in various festivals, markets, and performances across the city. Hence, when in Austin, embrace yourself for some great food, music, and friendly company.

Also, forget about freezing Boston winters and say hello to warmer weather. With more than 200 days of sun and almost no snow, living in Austin can feel like being on vacation all year round.

Why are people moving to Austin?

As mentioned before, it is now a fact that Austin is constantly growing and getting busier. This is no coincidence, since there are several things that draw people to the heart of Texas.

To begin with, the cost of living is a bit lower than in Boston, which is highly driven by housing costs. As a bonus, there is no state income tax in Austin.

Speaking of salaries, Austin has seen an increasing amount of jobs. Due to the lower costs of doing business, many companies have been moving there. For example, the tech industry that you would not typically associate with Texas has been booming there during the last years.

Tech giants such as Facebook, Hewlett Packard, Orion Novotus, Microsoft, Innotech and Tesla have built their hubs in and around Austin forming the “Silicon Hills”. Considering the large amounts of job opportunities these companies can provide, it is no surprise that a large pool of talent is drawn to Austin.

How to organize your move from Boston to Austin?

Plan accordingly.

Prepare a budget and pinpoint the dates you would like to move. Create a to-do list.

Research moving companies.

As you inquire about their services, keep in mind that there are many ways to lower the moving costs such as keeping only necessary items, doing your own packaging, and unloading, for example.

Research reliable car shipping companies.

Check online reviews as well as inform yourself of different auto shipping services and carriers.

Pack your belongings and prepare your car for shipping.

Book your plane ticket to Austin as your items and your precious car are in safe hands.

How can I ship my car from Boston to Austin?

Driving from Boston to Austin will take more than 30 hours, which is tiring and will add wear and tear to your car. It could be fun to some people, but for most it will be an exhausting drive.

Shipping a car from Boston to Austin is the most efficient way to move a vehicle.


While there are many car shipping companies out there, you should really invest time into finding that high-quality service you and your car deserve. Ask around, read online reviews, and do due diligence by communicating with relocation agents.

It is always a great sign if they ask important questions related to your car model, year of production, or any specifics such as operating mode or modifications, which can influence the type of carrier and service. Though most cars get transported on an open carrier, when you ship a classic car, you may want to opt for an enclosed carrier.

As you research car shipping services, feel free to contact Corsia Logistics vehicle relocation experts.  They will be happy to answer all your auto transport questions, as well as give you a customized free quote.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
