Household Moving to Providence, Rhode Island
Providence is the largest city in the state of Rhode Island and also sits as the capital of the state. Home to a population of over 179,000 residents, it is one of the largest cities in New England and also is the anchor of the Providence, Rhode Island-Massachusetts Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 1.6 million – more than the entire state of Rhode Island, actually, as its metro area extends into southern Massachusetts. Founded in 1636, Providence is one of the oldest cities in the United States, and during the 19th and 20th centuries was a major manufacturing center. As deindustrialization swept through the United States, Providence saw a downturn economically, and while it was once known as the “Beehive of Industry” today it is known as the “Creative Capital.”
Household moving to Providence should not be all that hard to find, considering its size and location. New England is a popular moving location, and indeed there are quite a few household moving companies that are located in the region, both local and nationwide alike. Household movers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metro areas just like auto transport companies do because that’s where their customers tend to be. Though Providence is not the largest city in New England, it’s up there in terms of population, and its size and metro sprawl make both the city itself and its metropolitan area more popular among customers and carriers. This usually results in lower household moving prices and usually faster pickup and transit times, though these depend on where you’re moving from (or to, if you’re shipping out of Providence). Due to the city’s size, there may also be some areas that are easier for movers to get to than others; older neighborhoods, particularly those build before vehicles were a thing, may prove challenging – or downright impossible – to get to. If this is the case, your moving company will have to work with a local mover with smaller trucks, transfer your goods to those smaller trucks and have them deliver it to your house.
