If you ever read moving company reviews, you could notice that #1 reason why people experience issues when moving long distance is that their moving company outsources the delivery to other transportation companies and therefore loses control over the stuff.

In a situation like that the moving company can’t know where the stuff is and when exactly it will be delivered.

That is why at Roadway Moving we have our own trailers and we do not outsource delivery to others.

We can move you directly from Philadelphia to any part of Houston and you can rest assured that your stuff will be packed safely, GPS tracked during the whole move and delivered on time.
