Moving is a big process, and moving with a pet requires even more work. When you move into your new home, not only will you have to design it to accommodate your lifestyle, but you’ll also have to consider your furry friend. Many times, animals become anxious during a move, so you’ll want to make your new home as comfortable as possible for them. The San Antonio movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have some DIY hacks for creating a fun and comfortable living space for your pet using repurposed household items.

-Make a DIY cat tent: Using a large t-shirt, two wire hangers, tape, safety pines, and scissors, you can create a fun little home for your cat.


-DIY pet bed: create a pet bed by stuffing a pillow inside of an old sweater, the sewing the ends of the arms together. Your pets are more likely to enjoy being near items that smell like you, and this could help them to relax.


-Using shipping pallets, you can build a tv table that doubles as a dog crate.


-If your pet enjoys sleeping with you, build a ramp or stairs for them to easily access your bed without straining themselves by jumping.


-If your furry friend likes sleeping next to your build, try building a dog bed into a night stand or end table.


-Repurpose your unused crib into a dog crate.


-Fill an old suitcase with pillows and blankets, your pet is likely to sleep in it, or use it as a comfortable place to lounge during the day.

The local movers in South San Antonio at All My Sons Moving & Storage report that the city’s Independent School District is considering closing or consolidating in the coming months, if the district efficiency plan moves forward.

The South San Antonio Independent School District has been facing difficulties in recent months, due to a lack of enrollment in almost every school. Movers in South San Antonio say the latest numbers are showing that the district will only be utilizing 60 percent of classrooms this year. If nothing is changed, this means within five years only half of its classrooms will still be in use. Numbers shared in the community meetings show that elementary schools in the ISD are experiencing the biggest decline in enrollment. This is a major waste of resources for the city and the state, costing South San Antonio ISD approximately $2.2 million per year.

Starting in early February and continuing through March, a series of meetings will be held to discuss a plan to run the district more efficiently, which could mean closing several schools. At the first meeting in early February, rows of families gathered to show their disappointment in the ideas of schools closing. Parents are worried not only about their children being sent to overcrowded schools, but local teachers losing their jobs.

Movers in South San Antonio say a plan is not set in stone just yet, but will be finalized in spring once the community meets to discuss a plan to run the ISD more efficiently.

The next two meetings will be held on February 27, 2017, at 6:15 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. at Kazen Middle School, then February 28, 2017, at 6:15 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. at Shepard Middle School.

Having an AC unit in your home has many benefits, and there are times when Texas residents are extremely thankful to have them. However, many people are unaware that their air conditioning system could be the main culprit for the sniffling, sneezing, and runny eyes they experience in their own homes. If you’re suffering from allergies and feel like you’ve done everything you can to avoid them, South San Antonio local movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage recommend looking at your AC for a solution.

Yes, running your AC is beneficial, because it keeps cold air in and allergens out – or does it? It does decrease humidity, and the removal of moisture from the air is essential to avoiding indoor allergies. However, improper maintenance of your AC could be having a reverse effect.

AC filters collect pollen, mold spores, and dust from your air – a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. South San Antonio local movers recommend changing your filter each month. Without proper cleaning or disposal of these filters, your system will recirculate this unhealthy air that can be making you sick. Improper maintenance of air conditioning systems can lead to mucous membrane irritation, headaches, difficulty breathing, and a generally ill feeling. Many homeowners report these symptoms vanishing after cleaning and replacing their AC and AC filter.

South San Antonio local movers also suggest checking your air ducts. If you notice excess dust blowing out of your ducts, it may be time to have them cleaned professionally.

The South San Antonio local movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage know that Texas can be very rainy, especially heading into the early spring months and summer months. An unfortunate result of high levels of rain is that it can cause leaks in your roof. It Is imperative that you fix these as soon as you notice them. Follow this guide to repairing leaks in your roof.

The location of the leak is not necessarily the same as where you see a water spot in your ceiling. Water runs down rafters and can show up a good distance from the roof leak itself. South San Antonio local movers say the best way to find the source of the leak is to look in the roof deck of your attic – this will tell you exactly where the leak is located.

If the water is leaking through the flat surface of your roof deck, remove the nails holding the damaged shingle in place, using a pry bar. Without damaging the shingle, gently lift it and apply a generous amount of tar underneath the tear, then lay the shingle back down. Add a spot of tar over each nail head as well. Next, add another layer of tar on the underside of the shingles for extra protection.

If you find that the leak is occurring near a chimney or a vent, this likely indicates that the seam where the flashing meets the vent pipe has developed a gap. This can occur due to a shifted pipe, or if the caulking dried up. This is a simple fix, simply seal the area with a generous coat of tar.


If you have just completed a move, your family may be feeling the effects that come with moving just before the beginning of a new year. If you have children, it is likely they will be switching to new schools. This can be a tough time for young ones after moving to South San Antonio. Oftentimes, children have a harder time adapting to a move and dealing with the transition. All My Sons Moving & Storage would like to share important tips on how to help your children switch schools in the middle of the academic year to a new school in South San Antonio.

  1. Do your research. Figure out if you can make moving to South San Antonio a little easier by talking to friends for family members that may know some people in your new area. Setting up a play date and helping your children meet new friends can really make a difference.
  1. Gear the school towards things they love. If you have a son that loves basketball, or a daughter who is an artist, look for schools that appeal to your children’s niche. Doing so can help them to be less anxious and a little more excited.
  1. Offer incentive. Understand that is a hard time for your child. Maybe a small shopping trip for some new school clothes will help build them the confidence they need to attend their new school in South San Antonio. A big breakfast or an ice cream treat after the first day is always a great idea!
  1. Ensure that while they will make new friends, you can help them to keep old friends! Make it a point to help your children keep the friendships they already have. These relationships often work as a safe space or an outlet. The trust and bond has already been built, and it is a great way for them to interact without pressure after moving to South San Antonio.

Martin Luther King’s Day is right around the corner. What better way to show your support for the equality of our nation than by getting out into the community and participating in the MLK Run in San Antonio? Your local movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage suggest that this is a great way to meet and mingle with like-minded individuals after moving to San Antonio.

This 5K run/walk will be taking place on the Sunday before Martin Luther King’s Day at 9 a.m. in Martin Luther King Park. This run will be put on by the Young Men’s Leadership Program to fundraise and bring support to their community and the community of San Antonio. This mission on this organization is to influence the forward thinking minds of young people into leaders. After moving to San Antonio, one of the greatest places to get acclimated is at MLK Park. The park offers wonderful scenery and sights to take a run through. There is no time limit for this run, and anyone is welcome to participate.

The MLK Run in San Antonio is a great event for families or friends to partake in as a group. Make a morning out of it and head to Downtown San Antonio after for some lunch, spending the Sunday exploring your new city. Make some fitness friends and train towards completing in more runs in the future if you enjoy this one! Many communities and organizations in San Antonio hold runs and marathons. This is a great way to get involved and give back to your new local community after moving to San Antonio.
