New Respect for “relax and get moving”

          Stress is a key contributor to moving.  Recently I have just purchased a house and the amount of stress that I went through was enormous.  The purchase I made was through a “short sale” which certainly added to the stress.  We sat at the table to sign papers and were not even sure if all the money had been resolved.  That […]

I have heard of some small time boston movers tacking on as much as 20%  for a tip to the final charges, but any reputable moving company would frown upon that. But in moving, as with most other services, […]

It’s Simple Math: Economy=Stress
