San Antonio Fiesta | Pin Pandemonium | VIVA LOS TRES
Loving Life and Loving Fiesta! 3 Men Movers showcases their second place medal for small businesses at Fiesta San Antonio 2017! A fun short clip to show our love for San Antonio and for Fiesta!
“Fiesta San Antonio” or simply “Fiesta” is an annual festival held in April in San Antonio, Texas, and is the city’s signature event (along with some events held in the following surrounding cities: Boerne, Schertz, Windcrest, Balcones Heights, and Alamo Heights) since the late 19th century. The festival began as a single event to honor the memory of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto.
Fiesta is the city’s biggest festival, with an economic impact of $284 million for the city. More than three million people take part, in more than 100 events that take place all over the city and beyond.
The festival began in 1891 when local women decorated carriages, baby buggies and bicycles with live flowers, met in front of the Alamo, and threw the blossoms at one another, thus inspiring the name “Battle of Flowers.” Soon, other activities were added to the flower parade, including balls, parties and a carnival. The celebration’s name changed over the years from Carnival to Spring Carnival to Fiesta San Jacinto and, in 1960, to Fiesta San Antonio.
This Year in 2017 3 Men Movers won second place for our “Viva Los Tres” Fiesta Medal. Our love for local communities and our brand showed through our Hispanic-inspired design of a 3 Men Mover truck (3MM Papel Picado).
Moving Out For The First Time | Moving Out Of Your Parents House | Happy Adulting
3 Men Movers explains what you need to look out for when moving out of your parents’ house. Simple tips and tricks to make your first few adulting steps easier.
So you graduated you got a job now you’re ready to move out start adulating!
The first rule of adulting is budgeting. So before you figure out where you want to live you need to figure out how much of your monthly income is going to rent how much is gonna go to utilities. A good rule of thumb is to use twenty percent on rent and ten percent on utilities.
The best thing about having a roommate is that you have someone to split your rent your utilities and your food with which takes your cost of living way down. Plus, there’s always someone to hang out with.
Rent is due at the first of every month and if you forget to pay your rent your landlord can evict you, sue you and it can trash your credit.
The biggest expense when you’re moving out of your parents house for the first time having to buy furniture like a dining room table, chairs, couches, coffee table and your kitchenware.
One thing you also need to figure out is if you need to higher movers. If you have a lot of large bulky items it’s probably safer to hire professionals. If not, it can probably all fit in your car.
The first thing that you should do once you get into your new apartment is to take pictures of any pre-existing damage that way you make sure you get your security deposit back when you move out.
The best thing about moving out of your parents house is that you can do what you want when you want. You come home whenever you want, you can drink out of the milk carton and no ones there to tell you how to do laundry.
Houston Nicknames | Htown | Space City | 713 | Metro City | Screwston | Super Bowl 51
Local Houstonians showing love for their city with every way they know how to say Houston! Every nickname this is given to Houston shows you the amount of diversity and culture the city really has.
“H-Town” is a widely popular and modern nickname for Houston. It is commonly used in reference to the city both locally and internationally, especially within the entertainment community. The “H” stand for Houston.
Houston is popularly known as “The Bayou City” because it is home to ten winding waterways that flow through the surrounding area. Buffalo Bayou is the main waterway flowing through the city and has a significant place in Texas history, not only due to the founding place of the City of Houston, but also because the final battle for Texas Independence was fought along its banks.
Although “Screwston” is not an official nickname, it is widely known by fans of local hip-hop artist DJ Screw and his style of music, known as “chopped and screwed”.
Houston received its official nickname of “Space City” in 1967 because it is home to NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center. The first words transmitted by Neil Armstrong from the moon, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed”, are written in 15 languages on bronze plaques placed along the main entrance of Tranquility Park in downtown Houston.

The 3 Deadly Moving Sins – Things To Remember While Moving
Our insider guide on what mistakes to avoid while moving: 3 Deadly Moving Sins explained in 40 seconds. A quick guide on what people normally forget when they are moving and what to look out for.
We all want a stress free move but that’s not normally what happens. In order to avoid the stress and headache avoid these 3 deadly moving sins.
Before you schedule your move make sure your booking with verified movers.
All movers in the state of Texas are required to have their DMV number on their website as well as on all their trucks. You can even check to see whether or not their number is still valid by visiting the DMV website Truck Stop.
Everyone has their own idea being packed; However be properly packed means having all of your belongings in a sealed and labeled box. Being packed means you save time on your move which means you have money in your pocket.
Time is precious during your move but know there are several factors that can affect how long your move takes like:
whether or not the movers are going up and down stairs to load the truck
whether or not you’re fully packed when they arrived
and the fact that they have to drive below the speed limits to get you second location.
and that was the three deadly moving sins in 40 seconds.
Millennials in the work place | How Millennials Work
The millennials of 3 Men Movers have something to say.
Hi I’m Kate, Hi I’m Lauren, Hi my name’s Jeremy, oh hi my name is Eddie,
Hey my name is Paige, Hi my name is Andrew.
We heard in the office that there’s a bit of a generational divide.
I’m a Millennial.
I know that you guys have a couple of issues with the way we work. So I thought we could clear some of that up today. not necessarily what you’re thinking is wrong about us more in the sense that it’s a misunderstanding.
So I mean just off the top of my head for example Lauren okay she’s our content marketing specialist she’s always head down phone constantly. she’s not doing that to tweet with her friends or to send a quick text about the next happy hours she’s actually responding to our customers here we have a 30 minute response rate so within 30 minutes she responds our customers whether they’re happy , sad, or otherwise because we want them to know we’re here.
Really having your phone is like your computer or having a tablet. Just because I’m on my phone does not mean I’m not working.
Let’s take Eddie for example. Eddie is our web developer and I think a lot of people see him more as the IT guy instead of the technologists. So might look like he’s just getting to roam the internet all day long or maybe his core function using power tools to fix a pc or fix that excel formula just can’t seem to work. But what he’s really doing is ensuring our website up and running and it looks great because the way we represent ourselves digitally means so much more now than it ever has.
We use technology for research and we use it to learn information just because it has so much available to us. So the next time you see a millennial on their phone or on the internet chances are that we’re actually building something or we’re creating something.
Another misconcepción would be Andrew for example: short attention span. It’s not that we have ADD and have possibly been overmedicated for most of our childhoods. In Andrew’s case he has a short attention span because everybody needs him. Andrew’s brilliant and he wears so many hats around here so usually his problem is after you’re done working with Andrew there is probably a line of about three other people who need him.
I like feedback and I know other people do. Paige for example, she’s always running back and forth to Jackie’s office and it could look like Paige can’t make a decision for herself but really we’re just trying to get stuff right like branding or ensuring that our drivers don’t need anything. So while it seems like we constantly need to be praised for our work some of that is we just need a little more information from you.
I don’t think that you can judge a whole group of people based off of a set of a few bad eggs.
There’s a perception that millennials jump around from job to job. Jeremy’s in the boat where he’s just got a lot of talent and a lot of skill and he’s exercising his abilities He’s a senior at the University of Houston to jump around and see what’s out there. Not a bad thing but a good thing. We want our interns to be curious about the world.
You’re kind of misguided in the way that you’re thinking about us and why we do certain things that we do.
Maybe your opinion of our generation,
if you look at it in a different light we’re not so bad after all.
For Christi and her family, moving meant the start of a fresh chapter in their lives. She recently adopted 6 children and needed to move to a home that could accommodate her newly extended family right in the midst of the hectic holiday season.
The Story of a community coming together to bring one special family hope, love, joy, blessings, laughter, compassion, inspiration, a life changing move.
I am very happy about moving. It’s been an experience, it has been crazy but we are finally doing it.
I first met this family through Child Advocates. Christi is actually the children’s aunt there are 7 children in this family 6 of them are Christie’s nieces and nephews.
She had ended up adopting her 6 nieces and nephews.
They were living in a house that was bursting at the seams. It’s just been kind of a group effort. The 3 older boys have out grown their regular size twin beds. The Holly Hall board of directors got involved in this. And they went to a company called Texas Mattress Makers when the board member went in to pay for the beds the owner came out and said no you just give that money to the family. When we add up all the discounts and the free stuff and the gifts and the cash that’s been given Holly Hall has ended up providing about 5,000 or over 5,000 dollars worth of goods, services, toys.
I have the same crew for the 2 moves that 3 Men Movers has done for me. You get a personal connection with the people that are moving you, and that’s a nice touch.
The experience with 3 men movers has been really good. They were very polite and respectful towards the family I do want to thank all the people that helped Holly Hall, Nell Richardson, and 3 Men Movers.
To be in a bigger house, to give the kids a bigger backyard to play in feels a lot better.
I am truly blessed so thank yall.
