The State Capital of Texas
The Moonlight towers aren’t the only tall landmarks, as the Texas State Capitol building is the second largest in the country, right behind Washington DC. But, 66 million years before these man-made structures, it was entirely covered in water with ten underwater volcanoes responsible for creating cliffs made of a crumbly white rock called “Austin Chalk.”
You are probably not aware of the fact that several movies were made here, and Spy Kids, Kill Bill: Volume 1, and Miss Congeniality are some of them. And talking about the movie industry, actress Sandra Bullock owned a downtown restaurant named Bess Bistro from 2006 to 2015. The longest-running live music TV show Austin City Limits began the broadcast with Willie Nelson’s performance in 1974.
The city has over 220 days of sunshine annually, which makes the clothing-optional beach Hippie Hollow even more enjoyable (it’s the only nudity designated place in the state!) But, it’s the winter nights that have earned the city its second nickname, City of the Violet Crown, as a reference to the purple light upon the hills.
But, it’s not just fun and games. When it comes to business, the state’s capital is home to a cluster of tech companies headquarters like IBM, Intel, and Dell, and thus has been named Silicon Hills. It’s innovating in advanced manufacturing, and it’s leading the clean technology revolution. But tourism, financial service and insurance, life sciences, and space technology are among major industries.
Neighborhoods for Every Need
Austin’s neighborhoods are like in most cities – there’s something for everybody to get to know and love. Whether you have a family and enjoy calmer and quieter surroundings, and love greenery and long walks in open spaces, or you enjoy vibrant nightlife and entertainment, you can find it in various parts of the city. Here are some of the most interesting neighborhoods:
- South Menchaca,
- North University,
- W. Smith’s Western Oaks,
- North Loop,
- Hyde Park,
- Windsor Park,
And many others. There is no doubt that the whole city is transforming and booming, and each corner of it has its possibilities and things to offer.
Things to Do When in City of the Violet Crown
The city offers so many activities that you might end up feeling overwhelmed, but nonetheless, there are attractions for every taste and all ages. Although this is the only metropolis in the US that doesn’t have its own professional sports team, you can go out and enjoy a round of disc golf. It’s above all a city known for music, with more than 200 music venues and over 2,000 performers and bands.
The cocktail and culinary scene have exploded in recent years, following the city’s growth, but besides restaurants and bars, there are food trucks all over the place. Visit the Whole Foods Store, although you can find them anywhere because this one is special – it’s the original one. And when the summer highs hit you, you can go and enjoy the Barton Springs cold water spring pool located in Zilker Park. And while there, you can go biking, hiking, and kayaking, and also see the outdoor Umlauf Sculpture Garden.
Whether you love the two-step country dancing or you’re not so good at dance moves, you’ll have to try it out sometimes because it’s one of the city’s favorite pastimes. Rainey Street has a partying atmosphere for those who like crowds and a bit wilder nightlife, or you can tour the craft beer breweries and try out some free samples.

But fear not, as the USA Auto Transport team is vetted and trained in handling all of your belongings and will work by your side to help you achieve a stressless and swift move. We will disassemble and reassemble your furniture and protect it along with appliances and everything else that won’t fit into a standard box.

If you want our professional crew to pack your belongings for you, it comes at an additional price. We offer partial packing up to 15 boxes and also full packing services for more than 15 boxes.
Storage Units for Your Needs
Many people need some time to organize their new home, and that’s why USA Auto Transport offers its customers a storage service that is free for the first 30 days. If you need to use the storage units more than that, we will charge per day. Just remember that this is an excellent solution if you have any items that can’t fit into your new home, but you don’t want to get rid of them. Everything stored will be kept secure and safe from damage and humidity because caring for your belongings is our priority. Our crew members regularly check on your household items and scout the surroundings.
USA Auto Transport cares for the safety of your belongings, and we are happy to tell you that you have options when it comes to insurance. Mandatory liability coverage comes at $0.60 per pound of damaged goods, and that’s a fixed rate that is non-negotiable. But we also encourage our customers to ask and pay for third-party insurance that offers full value replacement. Although our crew members are trained at handling everything with the utmost care, accidents may happen, and that’s why it’s best to feel at ease by taking insurance.
Our Company Offers Open and Enclosed Trailers
USA Auto Transport’s primary goal is to provide the best possible service for you and your vehicle. Relocations are demanding by themselves, and driving a car across the country can bring unnecessary stress and hassle on top of everything else. But with our company, you get to choose how the transportation of your car is handled. We offer different types of carriers that fit your needs and your budget. And keep in mind that the shipping price depends on several factors, including the distance, weight, and size of the vehicle, and the season in which you hire us, as the summers tend to be the busiest.
Open trailer car shipping is the most commonly used option for auto transport. It’s the more economical solution, fit for moving on a budget. With this option, your car will be shipped with up to eight other vehicles in an open trailer. Since the trailer is not covered, your car will be exposed to weather conditions and dirt and debris from the road. But, you shouldn’t worry about any damage because our crew is always on top of any task, and an open trailer makes it easy to check on the cars. Our haulers have double or triple levels, and all the vehicles are strapped and secured in order to keep them safe from vibrations during the whole distance of the trip.
USA Auto Transport is a company that offers its customers enclosed auto transport. This solution is the more expensive one, but it provides complete protection to your vehicle because it will be shipped in a carrier closed from all sides. No weather conditions or any dirt will be able to reach your car, and this is a perfect solution for more expensive four-wheelers. This type of carrier can transport up to 4 cars, and they will be loaded by a lift gate, ensuring a safe loading and unloading process.
Door to Door Shipping Services
Our customers’ favorite type of shipment is when our team picks the car at their front door and delivers it directly to the new address. And with the door-to-door auto transport option that comes at an additional cost, you won’t have to worry about driving the car to or from us. It will be delivered to you safely and in a timely manner. And if our truck can’t reach your front door, we will arrange a meet-up at the nearest parking lot.
Terminal to Terminal Solution
The more affordable shipment option that USA Auto Transport offers to customers is the terminal to terminal car shipping solution. The customer will leave the car at a designated terminal and later pick it up at the terminal closest to their new address. A customer will have to be more flexible and have more time on their hands to pull it off, but it’s a great solution for anyone that needs shipping service but has a tighter budget.
USA Auto Transport Are the Austin Movers That Offer Vehicle Insurance
Our crew handles your move with care and high professionalism and makes sure all problems are avoided. However, statistics say that 1 in 20 cars sustain some damage during transport, and that’s why USA Auto Transport’s insurance covers external damage for cars shipped in our trailers. For a vehicle shipped in an open trailer, insurance covers the damage up to $100,000, and for cars transported in an enclosed trailer, it covers up to $500,000.
