Three Men and a Truck offers high-quality, affordable moving services within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We assist residential and commercial customers with their local and long distance relocation projects.
Long distance Massachusetts moving companies
When you are moving to or from Massachusetts, the job is interstate. These moves are overseen by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is part of the Department of Transportation. FMCSA requires all interstate moving companies to register and has established rules to protect consumers from unsafe and fraudulent moving practices.
It’s up to you to ensure that the mover you hire is registered with FMCSA. You can quickly check by going to the agency’s search tool (SAFER) and looking for the company name. Three Men and a Truck is a FMCSA-registered moving company, and we follow all applicable regulations.
One of the key requirements for interstate moves is that the company must conduct a visual survey of the goods you want to ship and then submit a written estimate. These steps are designed to protect you from moving scams and unprofessional companies. Carefully compare the bids you get from movers before choosing one.
Local moves in Massachusetts
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts regulates intrastate moving companies through the Department of Public Utilities, requiring them to maintain an active license and adequate cargo insurance. You can look for these companies on the Massachusetts DPU website. Remember that if a mover also operates as an interstate carrier, it may not appear on this list.
Don’t rely on the DPU registration to ensure that the company is legitimate, though. Make sure you ask plenty of questions and remember that an onsite survey of your shipment will yield a more accurate price quote. The price will be an hourly amount, so also ask what other fees the company will charge. Ask for documentation of their business insurance as well.

How much does it cost to move to or from Massachusetts?
Local moves within the state are typically less costly than long distance moves. Still, the best way to narrow down the price for any individual relocation is to ask several reputable movers for an estimate. Check that everything you want to ship is reflected on the estimate and that the bids are covering the same service level.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?
You will receive a nonbinding quote during a phone consultation or when you fill out your moving details on our website. These are usually over 90% accurate. However, we will need to conduct an on-site inspection to verify the details before providing you with a binding estimate. This one would be completely accurate.
What’s The Best Time to Move in Massachusetts, And How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?
Given a choice, you should move during the off-peak moving season when only 20% of the move in Massachusetts occur. Avoid April-September, where the high volume of moves leads to high costs.
A move qualifies as a local one when the two places are within 100 miles of each other. Plan ahead by 2-4 weeks, and everything will run smoothly. Anything beyond the 100 miles radius is a long-distance move and needs 4-6 weeks of planning.
Is There Anything That a Moving Crew Won’t Accept to Load?
The moving crew will not accept anything that puts them at risk of liability, arrest, or endangers their safety. That means no flammable materials, illegal items, plants, or chemicals.
Who Regulates Moving Companies in Massachusetts and Where Can I Verify a Movers’ License?
The responsibility is left to the Transportation Oversight Division of the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU). You can verify a mover’s license by checking their USDOT number in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The DPU also has a list of regulated moving companies in Massachusetts.
I Had an Emergency, and Now I Need a Last-Minute Move. Is That Possible?
The customer is always right! When the schedule allows, we will execute your last-minute move per your terms. Even same-day moving can be done when there is enough staff and resources to deliver quality services. However, note that availability of services can’t be assured for same day moves.
I Don’t Have Enough Boxes to Package Up My Belongings. Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Massachusetts?
Start by checking with the customer service desk at the nearest outlet of a major supermarket chain. Packing boxes are usually available for free. Be sure to check other places such as retail outlets, recycling centers, and print stores. You can also buy moving boxes from moving supplies stores such as Springfield Corrugated Box and New Moving Boxes.
What Documents Do I Need to Have on Me on The Day of The Move?
You will need the insurance certificate, bill, inventory list, and estimate. Our policy is to match you with a moving manager that is well informed on your moving needs. We achieve this by assigning the staff member who talked to you during your initial consultation.
I Want to Add/Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is That Possible?
We strive to ensure all your needs are accommodated. That includes making the requested changes when possible. However, there are limitations, and same-day changes may prove challenging to implement.
Do I Have to Be Present During the Move or At the Destination?
Yes. You need to be present at the start of the move for documentation purposes. Once that part is done, feel free to send another person to act as your liaison at the destination, provided you have given them the right contact information.
I’m Not Ready to Move All My Items to The Destination Yet. Who Provides Storage Services in Massachusetts?
Our storage facilities in Massachusetts are available for your convenience. You will not have to worry about the safety of your items while they are in our facilities. For out-of-state moves, we have storage facilities countrywide so that you will be sorted.
