New Orleans Movers
It's Starving Students, the New Orleans moving company with heart.
New Orleans has several nicknames. Most popular are The Crescent City due to the shape of the Lower Mississippi River as it winds through the city, Hollywood South due to the many films shot there since 2002, NOLA an acronym for New Orleans, LA., and our favorite, The Big Easy.
Some say musicians gave New Orleans the name The Big Easy due to the relative ease of finding work there. Others say it came from the Prohibition era, when the city was one big speakeasy.The term was used by a local columnist in the 70s to contrast local life to that of New York City aka The Big Apple. Also, the name can refer to New Orleans' being a major city.
Those are all good theories.

1000s party on one Quarter
New Orleans is, simply put, one of the most fun cities in the world. The city is famous for its architecture, food, music, celebrations, Super Bowl parties, annual festivals, and of course, the biggest party in the US, Mardi Gras, aka Carnival, proud sponsor of massive hangovers since 1703.
"America's Favorite Cities", a poll conducted by Travel & Leisure magazine, ranked New Orleans first in ten categories, the most first-place rankings of the 30 cities in the poll. Respondents said New Orleans is the best U.S. city as a
The city ranked second for gay friendliness (behind San Francisco), straight friendliness (behind Charleston), bed and bath hotels and inns, and ethnic food.
The French Quarter (we locals call it "the Quarter" or Vieux Carré), contains many popular hotels, bars, nightclubs and of course, Bourbon Street, where every person is a potential bar selling omnipotent Hurricanes.
"Jazz Fest", one of the largest music festivals in the nation, features throngs of people from the world over. All here to experience music, food, arts, and crafts.
If you party too much and become a nuisance at "Voodoo Fest", another large music festival featuring local and international artists, don't worry, it will just feel like someone is sticking pins into your eyeballs.
A Moving Van Named Desire
There are many ways to get around New Orleans. Moving van, automobile, bicycle, train, ferry and the city's most famous mode of transportation, the streetcar. Made famous by the Tennessee Williams play and movie, A Streetcar Named Desire, the streetcar line to Desire Street is now a bus line. A Bus Route Named Desire just doesn't have quite the same...oomph.
Don't call it a comeback
When in New Orleans, you'd be lucky to see a traditional New Orleans funeral. Begrudgingly called "jazz funerals" by locals, they feature sad music on the way to the cemetery and happier music (hot jazz) on the way back. These jazz funerals personify the indomitable spirit and spirituality of New Orleans.
Many thought that the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 marked the end for this flamboyantly fun-loving city. But the people of NOLA work as hard as they play. Harder. They, with the help of the US govt and people and cities around the world, worked tirelessly to get the city back on track. By June 2007, the city was at two-thirds of the pre-Katrina population.
In 2013, as neighborhoods are rebuilt and people move back into their communities, we know there are several moving companies New Orleans residents can call for help. We wish them the best and hope they will consider using Starving Students Movers, a moving company New Orleans can rely on, as their movers of choice as they rebuild the city and bring it back to its earlier glory and beyond.
