Moving and Storage

{{basicsettings.company_name}} storage services are based on an hourly rate from the pick up to the unloading into our storage plus the storage fee based on the cubic feet amount times the rate per cubic fee (40 to 50 cents per cubic feet)

Note: Please note that {{basicsettings.company_name}} is not a public storage, therefore there is no access to your goods while in storage. Services are based on moving in and moving out.

PACKING SERVICES AND SUPPLIES

Packing and unpacking can be the most tiresome part of moving. We offer top-notch packing services to reduce the stress of moving. Our packing services are based on the same hourly rates as moving plus cost of packing supplies. If you'd like us to do all, or part of your packing and/or unpacking, please let us know well in advance, since there is a high demand for our packing crews.

FULL SERVICE PACKING

Should you hire a full service crew? This is a decision you need to make based on time versus cost. A packing service could add a couple hundred dollars to your moving budget. However, if you need to take two weeks off of work in order to get the house packed and organized, it may be worth the price. Most of the time, we can pack your home in one day. This saves not only time, but the hassle of living with -and out of- boxes.

PACKING SPECIALTY ITEMS

If you are on a budget or you want to lower the cost of your move, we offer packing of specialty items, particularly fragile only: kitchen, artwork, mirrors or other breakables or valuables. You can also inquire about our crating services for extra valuable items.

SELF-PACKING

If you choose to pack yourself, we offer FREE boxes delivery in Greater Boston area with $50 minimum order, when you move with {{basicsettings.company_name}}. You pay only for the boxes you use, and we will collect any unused boxes on the day of your move. Don't know how many boxes you need for your move size? Check our PACKAGES.

PACKING TIPS

Pack smart - load heavier items into smaller boxes. Overloaded large boxes are more likely meant to carry with 2 movers, one box at a time. Those boxes have a greater chance of collapsing because of their own weight and they are almost impossible to stack in the truck. All of this will slow down your whole move process. Fill up each box to the top, and if necessary, use plenty of packing paper to make sure there is no spare room left.

Book Boxes (1.5 cu. ft.) are designed to hold books! Yes, the smallest boxes should be used for the heaviest items books, papers, files, CDs, DVDs, record albums (some people still have them O), canned food and tools/hardware. Pack them tightly since these cartons often end up on or near the bottom when the truck is loaded.

3-Cubes (3.0 cu. ft.) are used for clothing, small electronics, miscellaneous items from drawers and kitchen cabinets, small picture frames, shoes and many other medium-weight items.

Large Cartons (6.0 cu. ft.) are great for bulky items that do not weigh a whole lot for their size bedding, pots and pans, sweaters, lampshades, etc.
