Moving From Boston To New York?

Jun 5, 2008
If you plan on leaving behind the Massachusetts Bay and your friendly Boston neighbors for the Fingerlakes Region fishing of upstate New York or the hustle and bustle of New York City, your whole world is about to change!

Moving can be an emotionally, physically, and financially draining time. However, you can save a lot of time and energy, and money, by choosing a full service moving company to help you out!

Choosing the right moving company can be confusing because of all the choices and options available. There are five major reasons why using a full service moving company is a smarter choice than using a do it yourself moving company.

1.) Options
Even if you do want to do it yourself, a full service moving company has more options for you to choose from. Maybe you don't mind packing and loading your cargo, but you want to fly or drive your own vehicle, and you need somebody else to transport your possessions from Boston to New York. A full service moving company can do that!

With a do-it-yourself moving company, you can rent a truck to load your possessions in to and drive the truck from Boston to New York yourself. Those are pretty much the only options you will have with a DIY moving company, while a full service moving company has many choices that will allow you to tailor a moving service to meet your individual needs.

2.) Less Stressful
Full service moving companies relieve as much stress as possible from your shoulders. For example, the most stressful thing about moving is the two weeks or more it can take you to pack everything you own.

A professional packing team can do your dirty work in hours, handling each package carefully and loading everything into your moving truck so you dont need to lift a finger. A full service moving company's professional moving team will even unload your belongings into your new New York home.

Full service moving companies have options and services to cover any stressful aspect of moving, including the experience to be prepared for any unexpected problems that may arise during your move. (For example, if your New York home isn't ready to move into when your shipment arrives, most full service moving companies offer storage units for your belongings.)

3.) Miscellaneous Convenient Extras
Even if you are thinking do it yourself a full service moving company can provide you with everything you need from the rental truck to packing supplies. You can also receive helpful moving related tips and advice from a full service moving company, including specific city information about your new location.

4.) Insurance Coverage
When you trust a full service moving company to handle your possessions, you can insure everything you own. With a do it yourself moving company, you assume full responsibility so in the case anything does get broken or damaged, you are simply at a loss.

5.) Price
The most common reason a person will choose a do it your self moving company is for a lower price. Perhaps if you were only moving a few blocks you could save money by just renting a truck, but if you are moving from Boston to New York, it could actually cost much more to do it your self.

DIY moving companies charge based on the size of truck you need, how long you will need it for, and how many miles you will be driving the truck. Unfortunately, fuel prices aren't included with most DIY moving company rates, so you will pay even more out of your pocket. With the rising prices of gas, the fuel cost for a moving truck (in addition to the mileage rate) could equal a year's mortgage payment on your new home so it can be very expensive to use a do it yourself moving company.

A full service moving company saves you more than time and energy, they also save you money as well because fuel is included in your full service moving rate.

Considering the liabilities that you are relieved from, a full service moving company is your most affordable and least stressful moving solution.
