ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS

CHECK LICENSES AND INSURANCE

Every Moving Company in Houston, Texas, Must hold a Household Goods permit and a valid Insurance (Auto and Cargo Liability), A quick run through the TxDMV website can reveal if your desired moving Company is operating legally, if they hold insurance that is active and If these movers have any complaints on their record.

 

ASK TO PAY IN CREDIT 

Any company that doesn’t accept a credit card, is a shady company. While you don’t have to pay with a credit/debit card and can always use cash, having that option is always comfortable, and leaves a trace of your business.

What makes Houston a top city to live at?

Houston is one of the biggest areas in the United States.

Texasmoveit.com
Houston is 2nd best in creating jobs, after NY.



It’s the largest city by area, and is home to over two million people. 


It’s also one of the most popular destinations for people looking into relocation.


As the taxes and population swell in places like New York City and Silicon Valley, Texas has welcomed everyone with open arms.


 It’s number two for having Fortune 500 company headquarters. 


Nicknamed the “Space City,” Houston is a diverse place with strengths in business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine, and research.




Basically, Houston has a little of everything. It has all sorts of jobs, apartments, houses, nightlife, and anything else a person might want. 


Houston’s own website rightly calls it “a cosmopolitan destination, filled with world-class dining, arts, hotels, shopping and nightlife” and there’s “always something to do in this Southern hospitality meets urban chic city.”


TEXASMOVEIT.COM
NASA headquarters resides in Houston, along with the NASA museum.

The only downside, for some people, might be the weather, but it’s not as hot as stereotypes dictate. The temperature range is actually comparable to northern cities, and is often a lot more comfortable. 


The yearly average is 62 to 79 degrees.

That’s not too far off from the famous California Bay Area, and is better than many northeastern cities. There is basically no real downside to living in Houston. It’s nothing but opportunity.


Finding reliable Houston movers who offer many services can be difficult. 


Fortunately, the city is also home to one of the best moving companies, Texas Move-It.


With hundreds of five star reviews, you can rest assured that your move will be professionally handled. 


Houston is home to many businesses, and there are many places to live. 



Moving to Houston is a surprisingly uncomplicated option which can provide your personal life with many long-term benefits.

Burro Y Flauta – Undiscovered vacation in the Yucatan Area – Merida, Mexico.

Burro y Flauta is a quiet vacation house, based in Merida, Mexico. 

No shouting tourists here – only simple hard-working people, living their live day-by-day.

acz_3900

Burro y Flauta is owned and operated by ex-pats from Houston, Texas –  who have made Mérida their home and hope to share this beautiful city with others.

Located just 20 minutes away from the gorgeous beaches of the Yucatan, Merida, our awesome vacation house rental is available for an unforgettable vacation

Merida is a historic center of culture for this region of Mexico.  It represents the melding of Mayan and the influences brought by colonization that has shaped and now defines present day Mexico.

The minute you arrive here you will feel welcomed as if you are coming home after a long time away.

While it is the largest city in the Yucatan, it preserves a small town feel as you walk its streets lined with colorful colonial facades.

A typical street with colorful colonial architecture in Centro.
A typical street with colorful colonial architecture in Centro.

It is not uncommon to be approached by fellow pedestrians, locals and tourists alike;

Who are just looking to start a friendly conversation and exemplify the hospitality characteristic of Merida and the Yucatan.

Merida is also known in Mexico as ‘la ciudad blanca’ (the white city), for the limestone that makes up much of the construction of historical district, locally known as Centro…

Or perhaps because the city is known to be kept particularly clean!

However, Merida is anything but bland as every house and building is painted a different color with both colonial and art decor architecture dating back to the 18th and early 19th century.

This destination is known for more than just for its beauty.

Merida is the center of Yucatecan culture with countless art galleries, gourmet restaurants, and lively parks and squares featuring free entertainment every night of the week.

Each Burro y Flauta vacation property is located within walking distance of one or more of Merida’s most popular squares;

Santiago, Santa Lucia, Santa Ana, San Juan, Ermita, and of course the city’s main square, called the Zocalo.  It is home to the oldest cathedral of the Americas!
