Even the strongest of the Boston Strong are having a tough time with the weather lately. Storm after storm has dumped a record shattering 70+ inches on the city, closing schools and even the T. Sidewalks and streets are in many cases still clogged with snow – you can make it through, but barely.
“My Mother always said I had terrible timing,” laughed Margaret. She’s in the process of packing up her apartment for a long-distance move – all the way to California, where she’s joining a start up. Margaret had planned to handle the move entirely on her own, but the wintery logistics have defeated her efforts. “The friends I was hoping to have help me are all bogged down shoveling out their cars and dealing with the snow. And I’m going to wind up breaking my neck schlepping boxes and furniture down the stairs, over the sidewalk and into the truck all by myself.” She threw up her hands. “I know when I’m beaten. When the weather’s this bad, it’s time to call in the pros – you need a Boston moving company.”
Most moves – whether you’re moving across the country or just to the other side of town – need to happen on a pretty strict timeline. “I don’t want to spend weeks in California without all my stuff,” Margaret said. “I thought if I just drove it out there myself it would be simpler, and I’d have no worries. But it turns out that by working with my Boston moving company, my stuff will actually get there sooner and I’ll wind up saving money on the move!”
When choosing a Boston moving company, Margaret made sure to seek out a local firm with an excellent reputation. “There are so many nightmare moving stories out there – that’s part of why I was going to do a DIY move! But Boston Pack and Ship has been in this business for decades and they’re very professional – never any surprise fees or worries. When you add in not having to deal with the hassle of bad weather? It’s the easiest & best decision I ever made.”
