Need advice about moving

Going to move from Dallas to Chicago, and have two options to move right now or in a month, so wanna ask should I wait or not, cos I think there are a lot of transportation companies on holidays, and as result I will pay extra if move now so if somebody can know for sure I would be happy if you help with your advice.
And also want to ask for some recomendations about house moving and car shipping companies, it's my first time I'am relocating and have no idea which one should I choose?
Thx for any usefull answer!

I think all those who are working as in transportation business there are no time for rest, always need to work even on holidays, I'ld like to say that rather hire effect made covid on price, than all holidays all together.
And about companies recomendations, for house moving company have no idea cos not an expert, but with car shipping, I moved my cars 5 times, first experience was really bad but other 4 was nice and last 3 was this year with shipvehicles, cool guys do their fast and without any headache, try to get their quote I think you will be satisfied and use them again if you need. Check their site, cos they are offer some discounts, so you can ask about it.
Though as it was said earlier its better to drive your car, it's cheaper than use any service.
Good luck!

Assuming based on the forum, the OP has an M3. Driving that from Dallas to Chicago in the winter is a tall ask. Texans won't have snow tires and Midwest will require them at minimum. Shipping is definitely the way to go.

Ship the car. It's just easier, especially like mentioned with snow and whatnot up north. It will still be winter up there through March-April.
Make sure the shipping company moving your house has good insurance and logistics reviews. Last thing you want in a cross-country move is to break or lose things. Some things may get damaged, but you want at least to be sure you have good coverage. It gets pricey, so if its a work relocation, make sure they help you cover some expenses.
Also, if you need help selling your Dallas house, I do real estate in DFW

If you're still needing transportation for your car (E92,E90) I'll try to help you out. I just picked up a E92 in NY and trailered it to KS. Covered trailer.
