“You get tired of the commute,” Elise said. “Every day, five days a week, I’m driving an hour and fifteen minutes to work, and an hour and fifteen minutes home. That’s when the weather’s excellent. A little bit of snow, or even real heavy rain, and the trip gets fifteen, twenty minutes longer – and in bad weather? It’s taken me three hours to get home.” She shrugged her shoulders. “You hate to take anything for granted, but my job is pretty securely rooted where it is. They’re not planning to move the headquarters any time soon. That’s why I’m moving to Boston, MA.”
Long commutes are often cited as a top reason people choose to move to Boston. The city’s own unique charm is another top reason moving to Boston, MA is on many people’s bucket list – whether they’re planning on settling down in the North End or South End isn’t always specified! Being close to Fenway Park is many baseball-loving retiree’s life plan: what better way to spend your golden years than making it to every single home game?
If you’re moving to Boston, MA, you really want to work with a moving company that knows the city. Some cities are designed with a beautiful logic built into their streets: New York City, for example, is laid out on a grid pattern. Boston streets are not laid out on a grid pattern. Navigating around Boston, especially with a full-size loaded moving truck, is not for the faint of heart. Before you commit to attempting this feat yourself with a rented truck, ask yourself how confident you are about making sharp turns on narrow streets and how you’ll handle discovering the street the GPS has directed you to is actually a one-way street – and it’s not going the way you need it to! If that sounds like something you’re really not into, give Boston Pack and Ship a call. They’ve been helping families move to Boston, MA since 1988!
