H-Town Movers – Best Movers in Houston
We won’t pretend that we can make your move completely effortless and stress-free. Even the best movers in Houston can’t make filling out hundreds of change of address forms, transferring utilities, finding schools for your kids, and learning your way around a new neighborhood easy and fun. What we can do is ensure that among all the other complicated and time-consuming things that go into a move, you don’t need to worry about the logistics of getting your possessions from your old to your new home safely, reliably, and in a timely fashion. H-Town Movers is one of the best movers in Houston, offering unparalleled service and competitive pricing.
Several factors involve the pricing and convenience of your move. Some, such as the location of van parking, number of steps up which movers need to carry loads, and distance traveled, are outside your control, but others, such as the type of services you select and how well organized you are can make a major difference in your moving experience.

What Makes H-Town the Best Movers
The first step in your move is looking for the best movers. Your absolute top priority is to find a company like H-Town Movers that is bonded and insured. This gives you and your possessions the highest possible level of protection. If one of our workers is injured during your move, our insurance covers compensation; if you use a company that is not insured, you are liable. H-Town has also posted a bond with a reputable surety company, so that in case of a dispute over losses or breakages, any compensation awarded is guaranteed, but if you hire unbonded amateurs, you do so at your own risk. Even better, we inventory every item we load and unload, and our trained and experienced professionals are highly skilled at carrying even the heaviest and most fragile loads.
Prune Before You Move
The amount, weight, and type of possessions you move affect the cost of a move and how long it takes to load and unload your household goods. It doesn’t really make sense to invest time or money in moving the sweater you got for Christmas ten years ago which you have never worn or obsolete electronics you don’t use. A few weeks before you move, sort through your possessions and either hold a garage sale or donate excess items to a deserving charity. Major appliances such as refrigerators, washers, and dryers and heavy or fragile items such as pianos or antiques also increase the cost and time involved in moving.
One of the biggest decisions you need to make is whether you want to pack your own possessions or have H-Town Movers pack them for you. Collecting free, lightly-used boxes from stores and doing your own packing can save you money, but it represents a significant time investment. Also, because your movers have no record of the specific contents and condition of owner-packed goods, they can only be insured by weight, which may be for less than the actual value of the contents. If you have valuable or fragile goods, the best movers inventory and pack them professionally, giving you extra protection and peace of mind. Our wardrobe cartons let you pack and unpack your closet so that your clothes arrive unwrinkled and ready-to-wear, and we also offer dish crates and other specialized packaging for various types of fragile or awkwardly-shaped goods.
As well as packing your possessions, H-Town Movers can unpack them at your destination. You can save time and money by creating a floor plan, and carefully measuring your new home, marking window and outlet placements, and deciding in advance what will go where. On the other hand, if you want to see how your furniture looks in your new home before you make your final decisions on how to arrange it, we’ll help you decorate by moving pieces around until you are happy. We can even help you recreate your favorite arrangements of collectibles by taking digital photographs before they are packed and then recreating your precise arrangements in your new home.
H-Town Movers offers many special services geared to your individual needs. If you must move out of your old home before your new one is ready, we can provide safe, climate-controlled temporary storage-in-transit for your goods. We also can offer a wide-range of pricing options, from a bare-bones economy move, where you do all the packing and we provide just a van and staff to load and unload your possessions, to a luxury move in which we pack up all your goods, transport them, and unload, unpack, and arrange them at your new home.
