Pedro Cantu

Packing up your belongings and relocating to another neighborhood, town, or state is never an easy task but most people do it at least once in their lifetime. If the move is long distance and you have a lot to bring with you, it's best to call a professional to move you from point A to point B!

Pedro Cantu is a professional household goods mover, learning the ropes from his uncle when he was a teenager growing up. Pedro's uncle owned a local moving company in Houston, Texas and Pedro started his moving career by helping out on weekends or his summer breaks from school, while earning some extra cash.

Pedro's entire family has roots in trucking, as his father, brother, cousins, and uncle were all truckers. Pedro grew up around trucks in Houston, Texas and he grew accustomed to the 3 AM wake up calls and the "sweet sound" of diesel engines in the wind! He decided to purchase his first truck in 2006 and he signed on with a major moving agent. He hit the open road and has been an owner-operator & a professional mover ever since that day.

His pride & joy is this 2006 Kenworth W-900 that's outfitted with a 132" ARI sleeper, and it's his home out on the road. The 315" wheelbase is decked out from the custom, lighted front bumper to the fiberglass fenders over the rear tandems. Pedro hauls for Allied Van Lines and his K-Dub is painted "Allied Orange" and accented in white. A polished drop visor sits over the windshield and the truck also features flat top straight pipes and plenty of extra chicken lights all around. Power for those heavy household moves comes from a C-15 CAT pushing out 550 HP and paired up with an 18 speed.

Pedro wanted to give a big shout out to his friend Freddy who is the owner of The Chrome Stop in Houston, TX. Pedro credits Freddy for helping him get his KW looking & running like a million bucks! Pedro definitely represents the trucking industry with class, and he takes a great deal of pride in keeping his truck looking its best no matter where he is.
