If you are searching for the best moving company in Oklahoma, you’ve found it!
Oklahoma is a south central U. S. state that historically served as a route for cattle drives and a government designated territories for Native Americans. The state’s name comes from the Choctaw words for "red people,” and it is also known by the nickname, The Sooner State, after people who tried to beat the noon starting gun in the “Oklahoma Land Rush," in 1889. The longest run of miles on Route 66 cuts diagonally through Oklahoma State. Some notable people from Oklahoma include Brad Pitt, Chuck Norris, Mickey Mantle, Reba McIntyre, and Ron Howard.
Oklahoma lies mostly in the Great Plains with small mountain ranges, prairie, mesas, and eastern forests in a region especially known for severe weather called Tornado Alley. Due to frequent interaction between cold, dry air from Canada, hot, dry air from the Southwestern deserts, and warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 62 tornadoes are produced here annually - a frequency unheard of anywhere else in the world. The National Weather Center in Norman is offers tours for those who are interested in the state’s extreme weather.
The Ozark and Ouachita Mountains rise from west to east, increasing in elevation in an eastward direction. The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Oklahoma is the largest protected area of tallgrass prairie in the world, and Ouachita National Forest is the largest and oldest national forest in the Southern United States.
