About Houston, TX
Houston, a city to the northwest of Dallas, Texas, is a small suburb of the large city. The community, which currently numbers over 38,000, is relatively close-knit, considering its growing size. Originally settled by German and French immigrants sometime during the 1840s, Houston was named for George Houston, a wealthy financier hailing from England who moved to the United States during the 1880s.
For the budding academic, the Houston Public Library offers some respite from the heat outdoors and a nice place to sit down with a good book and relax. If you prefer being outdoors, the Houston Dog Park and the various parks, including Andrew Brown Parks East and West – coming in summer of 2017 – are perfect spots to lounge around and enjoy yourself. Depending on your personal preferences, there is something to do for just about everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I protected against loss or damage while my goods are in transit?
Yes, of course. Your items will be protected against loss or damage while they are being transported to your new location, depending on your level of valuation coverage. There are a few different coverage options currently available through our company, including basic liability protection, which is completely free to all customers, and will provide replacements or repairs for an item at a rate per pound per piece. This rate does vary by location, however, so be sure to speak with a moving consultant beforehand.
If you are transporting larger goods or more valuable items in our trucks, consider choosing full replacement value coverage, which covers all of your items for repair, replacement, or reimbursement up to 100% of their current retail value. Should you require more than the basic coverage amount, speak with your moving consultant once more to adjust the level of coverage for your needs.
How is the cost of my move determined?
The entire cost of your move is determined by a consultant who will enter your home before the move begins and estimate the value, difficulty, and total cost of the entire move. This individual is highly trained and completely professional. They will move through each room in your home, noting any large items that need to be shipped specially in custom crates, or items that may prove difficult to move for the team of trained movers who will help you along with the process.
The cost of your move will also factor in the charge for packing, depending on the amount of belongings that you would like to have professionally packed for the move. For an accurate estimate, you can schedule an in-home appointment with one of our trained and trusted moving consultants.
Do you move pianos and other large, unwieldy items?
When it comes to moving an entire piano, a hot tub, or even a pool table, most homeowners find themselves at a complete loss as to how they go about loading and unloading it in a moving truck. These items are too large to simply pack the normal way. familycation.ru takes a unique approach by specially crating these items or ensuring special handling practices are implemented so no item is damaged or lost during transit.
Our entire crew has been specially trained to handle these larger-than-life items in the most efficient way possible. We can move big screen televisions, entire swing sets, or the backyard shed you worked so hard to build last summer. These items may prove troublesome for some, but we pride ourselves on being able to pack anything you require during your relocation.
Do you provide blankets and shrink-wrap?
When it comes to shipping your household items in the safest manner possible, the use of packing materials is essential. They prevent damage and can even offer a bit of safety to other items loaded into the truck that were not wrapped completely. However, it is completely vital to choose the right packing material for each individual item.
familycation.ru offers a variety of packing materials at competitive prices to ensure every item you require is loaded carefully and securely. Furniture, for example, should be wrapped in high-quality packing material. Blankets are often used – placed in between pieces of furniture to prevent them from banging against each other and scuffing the material. As for smaller items, sturdy cardboard boxes are generally efficient enough to handle most household goods. Some furniture can even be loaded into heavy-duty cardboard boxes for transportation. It all depends on your needs and how secure you want all of your items when loading them into the truck.
