Allied Van Lines: The Best of Galveston Moving Companies

Located on Galveston Island of the Gulf Coast in Texas is the lovely and historic city of Galveston, which was named for the Count of Gelvez in Spain, Bernardo de Galvez y Madrid.

The city was first settled in 1816 by Louis-Michel Aury, a French pirate. Today, Galveston boasts six historic districts with more than 60 structures on the National Register of Historic Places.

Galveston offers tons of outdoor recreation and with the local beach, you can enjoy the water as well in this family-friendly and welcoming community. The city experiences a semi-tropical climate with temperatures averaging in the 50s in the winter and the 80s in the summer, so there’s always time to get outside all year-long.

As of the 2012 U.S. Census, Galveston had a population of 47,762, so you can enjoy its small-town charm and affordability with a cost of living index about 7 percent lower than the national average.

Attractions and Activities in Galveston

Head to Seawolf Park to check out the USS Seawolf memorial as well as the submarine found here, the remains of a merchant ship and a destroyer designed for antisubmarine warfare. You can learn about the history of the area, do some fishing for different trout species, catfish and flounder or enjoy a picnic.

Step back in time with a tour of The Bishop’s Palace, also known as Gresham’s Castle. This Victorian-style home is considered one of the 100 most significant buildings in the U.S. by the American Institute of Architects, and the Library of Congress listed it as one of the 14 most representative Victorian structures in the country. It was built between 1887 and 1983 and boasts stained-glass windows, bronze dragons, carved ornaments and fireplaces from around the world.

Reviews from texas Customers

  • All the things you asked me before. They were just good. I had no choice to take Allied and I'm very pleased with the service. They bought out the public service company that I had in the Dallas area.
  • The driver and crew were very helpful, personable, quick, on time and did what they said they would do.
  • I like the whole service, except Allied VanLines only sent out one person to myhome to help with the moving so it took a long time.
  • The unloader did not assemble some of my goods. In addition the unloaders knocked some of the paint off my walls.
  • The estimator, loaders and the delivery team were excellent. The crew seemed to be nonchalant about the delivery.
  • I like the way things were handled. Totally wrapped everything and very careful with everything. Driver was comprehensive. Honest and straightforward.
  • The crew seemed to care about what they were doing, they were nice, careful, courteous, polite, and they went through the house and thanked everyone before they left.
  • The timeliness that the driver and crew displayed. The customer service reps were very eager to assist me.
  • Allied picked up & delivered on time. The driver also accommodated my delivery time in order to get access to the freight elevator in my building.
  • I had a positive experience with the exception that the salesperson or estimator should follow through to ensure that everything is handled accordingly.
