Our Home Base: Boston, MA
As a Boston residential moving company, we know that the Massachusetts capitol isn’t the easiest city when it comes to moving. Driving a big truck can be difficult on the city’s narrow streets, and the narrow staircases in some buildings can make even the simplest items trickier than expected. That’s where we come in. From Charlestown to Roxbury, from the South End to South Boston, if you are moving in the Boston area, you need a professional residential moving company.
Downtown, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and the North End
When moving in the financial district, Chinatown, or any of the other more tightly-packed neighborhoods of Boston, it’s super important to get permits for your moving truck. Most Boston residential moving companies will be able to secure and hang permits for a fee. But if you want to save a little money on the move, you can always do this yourself.
If you’re not worried about street parking or tight stairs because you live in a building with an elevator and a loading dock — that’s great! That setup can definitely take some stress out of the moving process. But make sure that you’re aware of any time limits on the elevator or the loading dock. You don’t want your residential movers kicked out of the building halfway through the move!
While parking isn’t quite as bad in the southwestern areas of Boston, it can still be tricky when you’re driving a 24-foot box truck. That’s why we recommend hiring professionals if you’re moving in any Boston neighborhood from Centre Street to Hyde Park Ave. Additionally, some roads in these areas — like the Jamaicaway and the VFW Parkway — don’t allow moving trucks. While a Boston residential moving company will know that, you might not. And you won’t save any money by moving yourself if you get a hefty traffic ticket!
South Boston, Dorchester, and Mattapan
The neighborhoods on Boston’s southeastern end tend to be arranged in a grid, which can make navigating the streets a little easier than in other parts of town, especially in the winter. With convenient access to Interstate 93 and many iconic “three-decker” homes, Dorchester and South Boston are becoming two of Boston’s most popular places to live. And if you’re thinking of moving to either, you know which moving company to call. (Hint: it’s us!)
Charlestown, East Boston, Bay Village, Roxbury, and the South End
Permits are also a good idea in the tight streets off Massachusetts Avenue in Roxbury and the South End. And the same is true across the Charles River in historic Charlestown. But whether you’re moving into a studio in East Boston with a great view of the Harbor, living the college life in Allston, or raising a family out in Brighton, a good Boston residential moving company can help your relocation be a quick, easy, and painless process.
