Long distance moving companies in Boston, Massachusetts

Moving to or from Boston, Massachusetts, is an adventure, but it can certainly be stressful to complete a long distance move. The process will usually be much simpler if you hire a great moving company like Three Men and a Truck. Finding the right mover is easier if you follow these suggestions from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration:

  1. Always get a written estimate. Long distance movers are required to provide their bids in writing, but it’s up to you to make sure they follow the rules. A written estimate is an indication of a reputable vendor, and having it allows you to compare the prices and services between the various companies you are considering.
  2. Only consider movers that are registered with FMCSA. All interstate movers are required to register, and you can check at the FMCSA website. While you are there, review their safety record and customer complaints.
  3. Brush up on moving industry vocabulary. If you understand the terms the mover uses, like bill of lading and tariff, you will be in a better position to negotiate and protect your rights. FMCSA has some excellent resources to help you.
  4. Don’t automatically assume the lowest bid is the best. You are trusting the mover with your household goods—choose carefully.

Local movers in Boston, Massachusetts

Moving locally in the Boston area can be challenging. You may be moving in or out of a crowded Beacon Hill street with difficult parking or a more rural area with other issues. Some of the local historic buildings make moving furniture difficult. Hiring a professional mover takes that burden away from you and puts it on the moving crew, which is a significant relief, as long as you have the right moving company.

Always ask a local mover to document their license and insurance. Massachusetts does require intrastate moving companies to register with the Department of Public Utilities, so you can check for compliance, but ask for up-to-date records to be on the safe side.

How much does it cost to move in Boston, Massachusetts?

Long distance moves in the U.S. average over $4,000, while local moves can often be completed for under $1,000. Every move is different, and regional labor costs are higher in Boston than in some other areas. Your local moving company will provide you with an estimate based on an hourly rate, while the long distance bid will include the shipment’s weight and the mileage for the trip.
