Household Moving Tips to Boston
Boston is the largest city in the state of Massachusetts and is home to over 636,000 in the city proper and 4.5 million in Greater Boston, the city’s surrounding metropolitan area. It is one of the oldest cities in the United States and the largest city in New England – as such, it is one of the most popular household moving locations in the country. Shipping all your worldly possessions to anywhere can be stressful, particularly if you’re trying to get into an area that is naturally difficult for large moving vans to access. Boston, like many major cities, has quite a few areas that movers cannot get their trucks into; this makes it difficult for anyone moving their goods, but the good thing is that there are ways to get your stuff into your home without the moving van having to break any laws.
The way they do it is they use a local moving shuttle to take your goods from the moving van to your home. Most moving vans are 53′ semi-trucks with trailers attached; naturally, getting down windy, narrow streets in something that large is near-impossible. Therefore, they’ll drop your goods off at a warehouse on the edge of town and have a smaller moving truck take your household goods to wherever it is you need them to go. Specific addresses, of course, are a must, and your moving company will make sure that they can’t get to where you’re needing your stuff taken before they actually drop your goods off at the warehouse to be transferred to the local moving van. Many long-distance haulers will contract with local movers across the country in order to get this done, and any price hikes that come with it will be included.
Of course, when you’re shipping your household goods from one city to another it’s going to be expensive, so make sure to budget accordingly. It also takes time; at least a week more than auto transport, on average, so make sure you give yourself the time you need too.
