2021 Year in Review: The Best Is Yet to Come
It’s finally here! We’ve been waiting for 2022 with all the excitement and bated breath of a kindergartener in line for recess—but we can’t skip looking back on the journey that led us here. Things were much brighter in 2021 when compared to the previous year… In fact, our personal lives weren’t anywhere near as unpredictable as in 2020.
For business, it was clear that the in-person service concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic weren’t going anywhere. Yet, the formerly widespread restrictions that complicated moves in 2020 were easier for us to navigate and adapt to so we could serve you better this past year. We tightened up processes and our crews still found ways to give you extraordinary and efficient moving experiences. (After all, preparation is a moving company’s best friend!)
There were plenty of valuable moments throughout 2021. Some made us smile and grow, others helped us level up and reach even more customers who need trustworthy, expert movers. Overall, we’ve turned over a new year and know the best is yet to come for everyone.
Check out some of these top highlights of 2021 down below!
There’s a reason why thousands of Texans trust us to help them transition or store everything they have. Moving fast and efficiently is what we do best. We even have the moves to back it up!
We Respect That Your Home Is Sacred
Yes, we gave away free storage—but it was way more than that: Winter Storm Uri left many Texans without power and caused massive leaks from burst pipes that ruined homes. So, we stepped up to the plate by donating $31,625 in free monthly storage for our MOVITS portable containers! We’re more than honored to help our communities put the ravages of a freak storm in the past and put the pieces of their homes back together at their own pace.
After Storm Uri burst pipes all over Houston, 115 lucky customers enjoyed free rent on portable MOVITS™ storage containers.

“We have seen cultural changes throughout the company that have been very satisfying to see. People sincerely care about their co-workers and I love that. We have continued to grow tighter as a team. With such an increase in volume, that sometimes drives teams apart, but we bucked the norm.”
“We executed the plan to grow leaders from within and leveraged talents from each group to create a solid, well-supported hierarchy to meet goals. [Help Desk] team made huge strides to make engagement, preparation, and caring for our crews, employees, and customers [our] mission #1.”
We Are the Experts
Expertise comes with experience—and 2021 taught each one of us a lot. Between the pivots, challenges, and changes, everything we learned serves to ultimately make us better at serving our customers and supporting our crews and staff.
