As a local moving company in Boston, we have helped thousands of families over the years move down the street or around the corner. Many families like yours decide to purchase a larger home because the family is growing or we see many people in retirement age deciding to downsize and move locally.
If you want your local move to be successful and stress-free, we have a few must-have tips to ensure your move goes according to plan and can be an enjoyable experience in the process.
Work with established and reputable local movers
One big moving mistake is hiring a moving company that only has an Internet presence. If you want a successful local move, you must work with a reputable moving company with a physical presence in your region. Established local moving companies know your community as well as the towns they serve.
Get access to your new home ahead of time if possible
One benefit of moving locally is the opportunity to get into your new home or apartment before moving day. This may not be possible in all situations but it doesn’t hurt to ask. By getting in early, you can get a better idea of where you’d like to place furniture and make any improvements to make your new house a home.
Arrange for additional help and support
Another benefit of moving locally is that you may be able to ask for additional support on moving day. For example, if you have young children, see if they can stay with relatives or grandparents. The same goes for pets. We know you love your pets, but having them out of the way on moving day will be safe for everyone, including them.
