Moving to New Mexico?

From arrowheads to space age missiles, the southwestern state of New Mexico has witnessed it all and has embraced Indian, Spanish, and Anglican cultures with totality. The name of the state is an anglicized version of “Nuevo Mexico,” a Spanish word which means “place of Mexitli,” one of the Aztec gods.

The state is known by the official nickname “The Land of Enchantment,” because of breathtaking landscapes and a rich cultural history. It is also known as the “Cactus State” due to the abundance of cacti grown in the region. “The Spanish State” is another nickname used to describe the state's historical background and the large proportion of Spanish-speaking population.

New Mexico is famous the world over for two things: the annual hot air balloon event at Albuquerque during early October, and space tourism for ordinary citizens by Virgin Galactic, a company which is headquartered at Spaceport America in Upham, New Mexico.

If you’re moving to New Mexico, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Southern valleys have a longer freeze-free season of 200 days while northern mountains have 80 days of being freeze-free. Summer rains are quite brief, while winter precipitation is due to the frontal activity of Pacific Ocean storms that move across the country from west to east.

Thunderstorms occur frequently during the summer with the northeast region of New Mexico reporting the second-greatest thunderstorm frequency in the nation. (Helpful Link: New Mexico Weather)

Everything went fine
Albuquerque Moving & Storage Co. Inc.
It was great. Pricing was competitive. They were courteous and showed up on time. They didn't pack anything but handled it well.
Review by : Tom
Good Service
Ready Set Go Moving & Van Lines
With charging $135 there was NO sense of urgency. If I hadn't help with some of the little stuff their would probably have another hour added to the charge. I've moved over 20 times and they were close to being the slowest. They were very pleasant and took good care of my household goods but worked to slow. A six hour job should have only taken 4.5 at the very most. Again, friendly and careful service but have to work faster.
