Houston Moving Companies
Houston, the city in Texas, is pronounced "Hugh"-stin, whereas Houston, the street in New York City, is pronounced "How"-stin. Now this may only be important to the people that live in these two places, but that's a lot of people. New York City is no surprise, but did you know Houston is the 4th most populous city in the US? New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, then Houston. You'd probably win a few bar bets with that bit of knowledge. There's probably a lot about Houston that will surprise you. So open up your mind and let's talk Houston. Or is it Houston?
No matter how you say it, Houston is big. 650 square miles big. 2.1 million people live in the city, and over 6 million live in the Houston - The Woodlands - Sugar Land metropolitan area, the 5th largest in the US. Houston is also flat. Downtown is 50 feet above sea level and the highest point in the city is only 75 feet above that. This is probably why Starving Students Movers, the Houston moving company that puts their heart into every move, has such an easy time moving people in Houston. No hills, no problem.
