"Thank goodness for this moving company. Let me tell you what happened. The first moving company I hired told me they were coming, then never made it after keeping us on the hook the entire day. I had a Uhaul outside my apartment waiting to be loaded with my mother who flew in from thousands of miles away to help me drive to California.
At 8pm on a Tuesday night I was desperate to be loaded up so we could leave Houston the next morning. Kathryn with Pro Movers contacted me and saved my entire move! She had a two-man team at my apartment at 7:30am the next day! The guys were efficient and even wrapped things more than I did to make them especially secure in the truck. My mom drove the truck through the mountains. Not a single thing broke. Thank you Pro Movers for your help to make my move a success!"
The moving team was outstanding. We enjoyed working with them. Working through such a difficulty time with Kathryn was a pleasure. She is amazing!
"I had a very good experience and would use them again if a need came up."
"I couldn't have asked for a better moving experience. Kathryn Weathersby was very professional and so were her guys. We weren't sure what time we would get to town and they were able to adjust their arrival time. The guys were very considerate of the wood floors and laid quilts to keep from scratching them. They were very polite, considerate and professional. I would highly recommend them."
"Worth every dollar! I moved from FM 1960 to the Medical District. Kathryn set me up with 4 man team. It's exactly what we needed. The guys themselves were respectful and worked hard. There were torrential downpours this day. All of my furniture and belongings arrived just as I had left them, not even a scratch! They took the time to hook up all my stuff, move everything exactly where we wanted it and left with a smile on their face. I'm very happy we found them and I highly recommend them."

Moving Tips for You!
Who can't use some moving tips when they're packing up their whole life for a new home? If you're among thousands of people who have picked up and moved their family to a new home or a new community, you have fresh memories of some of the ups and downs or thrills or frustrations of moving.Drawing from personal experience, I know there are lots of ways to help make your household move easier and more smooth.
Make a list.
Write everything down! You'll thank yourself later. Before you pack even one box, create a simple record keeping system. Create a computer-printed list of numbers with a space to write the contents. Or have a spiral-bound notebook for the job. You'll place a number on EVERY box you pack and list the contents on your list. Don't put the list down unless it's in a place you'll call Packing Central. This is where you'll find your labels, marking pens, box tape, and other supplies. When describing the box contents, be specific -- "A-D files" is better than "files", and "Tulip dishes" rather than "misc. kitchen".
Have plenty of supplies.
Don't make me say this twice-- you'll need LOTS of boxes--probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! (If you buy your boxes from a moving company, you can always return unused boxes for a refund. If you got them free from the grocery, just toss any leftovers.) Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies.
You'll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household good. Again, you'll need lots more supplies than you think, so get extra so the packing can go smoothly. Return any unused supplies after the truck is packed.
Utilize wardrobe boxes.
These tall boxes are perfect for bulky, lightweight items such as comforters, pillows, and blankets, as well as clothes that need to remain hanging. Call your mover to ask the width of the wardrobe boxes they'll be bringing. Then measure the clothes in your closets (including coat closets) to see how many wardrobe boxes you'll need. You can also use them for closet storage boxes, shoe boxes , and other bulky items such as fabric bolts, large baskets, or gift wrap tubes.
Don't make the boxes too heavy to lift, however. One mover told the story of someone who put a bowling ball in a wardrobe box! When the box was lifted off the truck the bottom gave way, sending the bowling ball on a wild ride down the ramp, across the street to the gutter, then down a hill where it finally came to rest in a roadside ditch. (Is that a strike or a spare?)
Strategize wardrobe box use.
Moving Companies will be happy to deliver boxes ahead of your moving day. Or if you're doing the move yourself, get things organized as early as possible. A few days before your move, fill some sturdy handled shopping bags with bulky closet items such as shoes, sweaters, belts, and jeans. On moving day, fill the bottom of the wardrobe boxes with some of the shopping bags, then add your hanging clothing. Pack hanging items tightly so things won't move around and fall off of hangers. Finally, cover the shoulders of your clothes (a dry cleaning bag works well), then add a few purses or sweaters on top. You'll have fewer boxes, and closet items remain together. Also, the shopping bags will make it easier to retrieve your belongings from the bottoms of a tall wardrobe box.
