Local Moving 

Houston is a sprawling metro, and every area is unique. Square Cow Movers is a local moving company that knows the lay of the land and how to handle the crazy summer humidity. No matter how short the move is our local movers will provide the same level of service you’d expect during a long distance move.  

Long Distance Moving 

Handling the logistics of a long distance move takes time and skill. We can ease the burden with expert planning services and movers that are experienced at hauling a moving truck across the state or even across the country.  

Piano Moving, Pool Table Moving, Fine Art Moving 

Letting novice movers handle pianos, pool tables, artwork and other specialty items can end up being an expensive mistake. Our movers know how to come up with a safe game plan for disassembly, packing, loading, transport and reassembly.

Even if you’re moving a single room, most people don’t look forward to the packing process. Our Houston movers are packing pros that know all the tricks of the trade to make it go smoothly and keep items safe until they reach your final destination. We save you loads of time and hassle by providing all of the packing materials and manpower.

Houston Galleria Landmarks  

The area gets its name from The Galleria, a Texas-sized, upscale shopping center. It’s the fourth largest shopping center of its kind in the nation, and over 30 million people visit the location each year.   

But the Galleria-Uptown area isn’t just a mecca for shopping. Residents are also right next door to Memorial Park. The park is adjacent to the northeast part of Uptown just across from 610. The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is just minutes away, and many Uptown dwellers ride their bike to the expansive green space. 

Another distinct feature of Uptown is the Loop. Running along the eastern border of the area, it gives residents and workers easy access to get just about anywhere else in Houston.
