Houston Mover

Residential Houston Movers

As any homeowner knows, a local Houston move can be very challenging.  They can range from heat to logistics, not just loading boxes onto a truck. From a three-story townhome, with narrow to stairwells, popular in Houston’s Midtown to a large home in Houston’s Memorial section, it’s always best to hire a professional mover that will handle your local Houston move taking some of the stress out of the day. We offer a wide variety of ways to assist our clients. See the Houston Mover Johnnie T. Melia can make a  difference.

Office & Commercial Movers

There are many things to consider when it’s time to move a business, even if it’s local. It is not feasible for the business not to be open simply because it’s moving location. To have an easier time, it is always best to call a professional mover that has experience with re-assembling office furniture and has superior organizational skills as to not mix up files and desks. JT Melia has been moving Houston businesses nearly 50 years.

International Mover

So you have been told you have to leave your home and move overseas by your employer, now what?
If you are in Houston there is only one company that has the experience to move an entire family to a different country, with all their household goods arriving safely and if you are thinking of coming back to Houston, our long-term vault solutions are a unique and affordable long-term storage solution.

Crated item

Packing & Custom Crating

Many times when moving, there are specialty items in the home that require special custom packing be fabricated for that specific piece. Not all movers are able to do that. Whether it be a pool table, grandfather clock or a sculpture, we build custom packing to make sure your valuables move safely to their new home. Additionally, we have no issue with moving items such as pianos or gun safes. Some companies may not be as accommodative. If you have special items, JT Melia should be your first choice.

Houston: Here’s How to Get An Accurate Moving Quote

After a long day of moving, the last thing anyone needs is a bill far larger than they anticipated for their move. Sure many movers can offer a moving quote. Some offer interfaces that allow you to price your move. Some have nice people that call on the phone and talk to you about your move and then give you a quote. But without seeing your home that quote is nothing more than a guess. Moving companies can not give an accurate quote without actually seeing your home and how much “stuff” you have in it.
Each move is different, and for you to get the best possible quote, it is important for whoever you choose to come out, walk through your house and give you and accurate price. And for you to compare quotes, each mover should come out to your home or office. You cannot compare an in-home estimate, which is far more accurate to someone you talk to on the phone, no matter how nice they are. Watch the video to see the hows and whys to get the best quote and not have unwanted surprises at the end of your moving day.
