So you are thinking of moving to Fort Worth? You won’t be disappointed. Coming from humble beginnings as an Army outpost to a now sprawling metropolis of nearly 800,000, Fort Worth has been one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and earned recognition as one of “America’s Most Livable Communities.” Once a pioneer on expansions to the West, Fort Worth now melds its Western heritage with modern amenities and exciting opportunities. Outside of what the city itself offers, you’ll come to find that many residents take southern hospitality to heart. The number of wonderful things about this city is astonishing: an affordable cost of living, consistently one of the nation’s strongest economies, southern charm, deep history and more.

Helpful Tips for Moving to and Living in Fort Worth, Texas

We have more than 20 truck rental locations in Fort Worth and more than 10 self-storage facilities to cater to your moving needs. If you are looking to move to Fort Worth, check out some of the tips below to help you along the way.

  • Texas Heat – If you can manage it, arrange to move to Fort Worth outside of summer. July is generally the hottest month for Fort Worth residents, as temperatures have been known to surpass the 100-degree mark, but anytime from June to August will have its scorching days. If you are moving during the summer, we suggest drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and avoid heat exhaustion.
  • Find Your Niche – Fort Worth can be a city of hustle and bustle or leisurely and laidback, depending on what you are looking for. Living and working in the downtown area of Fort Worth definitely has its benefits. There are many modern apartment facilities in the heart of Fort Worth, ideal for business professionals and singles looking to mingle. On top of that, you are within walking distance to more than 30 restaurants in Sundance Square. If you are looking for a more suburban lifestyle, Ridglea Hills, Ridgmar, Western Hills and North Richland Hills all have top-notching school and a competitive housing market; you’ll find a good family friendly community setting for your family.
  • ID Cards – Many states have a requirement that, as a new resident, within 30-60 days you must get a new license based in your new state. Not Texas. You are allowed to keep your current identification card until it expires and/or get a new ID once you have lived in the state for at least 30 days.
  • Sundance Square Plaza – If you are not already familiar, the Sundance Square Plaza is a 35-block shopping and entertainment district located in downtown Fort Worth. Sundance Square has something going on almost every day; if you are looking for something to do, head down to the heart of Fort Worth at Sundance Square for a variety of dining, shopping and entertainment experiences.
