Considering a Move from Northern California to Texas...

Recommended Posts

Just moved to DFW 1 year ago. I registered my SS about 6 mo after I got there, waiting for my CA reg to run out.

 

There is an inspection for certain MY vehicles, but they really just check to see if you have working lights and no check engine lights.

Thanks for all the insight. Wife's heading to hill country tomorrow to check out some potential places. Looks like this is going to happen sooner than later! Guess I'll have to change my TS Region as well.

Is yours a work-related move or just to get out of CA?

Just to escape the Peoples' Republik of Kalifornia. As a lifetime native/beach lover/golfer etc, who swore I/we would never leave the perfect weather of CA, the turds in Sacrament finally drove us out. So, onward and upward.....

We did look in the Reno Valley area but just couldn't find exactly what we ere looking for. Looked in Prescott as well. My wife was pretty locked in to Texas from the beginning so I'm pretty much along for the ride, so to speak.

Question for you Texans. I was going to transfer my current collector car insurance to an agent in TX but when I got a quote, same company I have now, it was 30% higher. Does that sound correct? Is collector car insurance higher in the great state of TX? The quote I got on my DD's was about the same as CA. :headscratch:

I wouldn't move to Texas because too many liberal Kalifornians are moving there and changing their way of life. Not sure why exiting Kalifornians choose to relocate in TX.......maybe it's their master plan to take over the most Conservative State in the Union one liberal at a time !

 

I'm sitting here in the cesspool known as NY. I have the same damn issue ! I'm looking to flee to the Southern coast but I'm battling the same issue. Too many Liberal NY'ers are relocating to Southern States and changing their climate. These Liberal NY'ers are moving down South and telling them that they're doing it all wrong!

Thanks...after speaking a little more firmly with the agent down your way my insurance suddenly dropped to near what it is now. I wanted to keep the same company but my current agent couldn't write in TX.

Not really. The libs are staying put. It's the ones who are fed up with everything that's bad in CA that are bailing. At least those who can. I know a lot of folks who would get out in a heartbeat it their circumstance allowed for it.

 

I'm sure there's a master plan to infest TX just as they did to CO; so hopefully we'll be two more guns at the next Alamo.

Sherri,

 

We'll be moving to Bulverde, just outside San Antonio, a little later this month. Looking forward to it!

Yea, you might want to consider the Alamo as a background since you will be close. Personally, I like the beach

I went online and Austin does not look like a typical Texas picture one has in there mind, like desert with oil wells in everybody's yards :). It has nice hills and greenery, looks like a real nice area to be in.

Please update on your first impressions.

Well, actually we're closer to San Antonio than Austin. But You're correct. We've landed in hill country I believe it's called. Our property is covered in oak trees and we walk under a canopy of trees when we walk around the yard and surrounding area.

 

The short time we've been here has been a bit of a culture shock. People are actually friendly, say hello, smile and seem very polite...I've never heard so many "yes, sirs", in my life! But then again I haven't spent any time in the city yet, just out in the rural area. I have noticed that there is a ton of car clubs and car related activities/shows etc in the surrounding area so that is a big plus.

 

Once we're good and settled I'll post some pics, but until then, ya'll take care! :thumbsup:

Well Welcome to the Great state of Texas!! I actually live in the Dallas area but travel down there every other week for work. Lived in North Austin for years and loved the car culture down there. Coming from the West Coast I will tell you now get ready for allergies to kick in living in the Hill Country.
