Boston Long Distance movers
Moving to a new place is fun and exciting. However when you think about the whole process involved with moving, well, the fun element gets replaced with worry. Whether it is interstate moving or one is moving up the street, one has to take help of the movers and packers company.
Today we will talk about the various types of long distance moving services available in Boston to help you in choosing the right one.
Some long distance movers offer you with the facility of PODS. The concept of PODS is pretty cool. However, PODS is quite expensive. In this, a big empty container is left at your place so that one can pack in all his/her stuff inside it. Later they pick it up and store it for a maximum of 1 month at a destination that is accessible to the owner and then drops it off at the new location for the owner to unload stuff by himself.
The sunny side of this whole process is, there is no chance of any of your items going missing since you will be loading and unloading yourself. Secondly, you can make a reservation for PODS beforehand and later cancel it, in case the option does not work for you. Moreover, if reservation is done within certain specified dates, there will be no obligation on your cancellation.
However, the flip side is, there is a lot of work involved with it. You need to load everything inside the container and unload the same. This can prove to be arduous especially for the elderly and those who do not live on the ground floor, coming up and down several times with the heavy boxes can wear you out completely.
There are other state to state moving companies that are ‘less reputable’ than the others. These are cheap long distance movers. What these companies do is they talk to you over the phone and give you a quote based on whatever items would be moved. They do not personally come to your place to see the stuff and give you an estimate. In the first encounter, these might seem very lucrative because they offer you the cheapest rates in the market. But as the saying goes, “All that glitters is not gold” applies in this case.
If you do some thorough research on these ‘less reputable’ out of state moving companies, you will get to know a different story. You will find that phone-only estimates include several hidden charges. A moving cross country company will give you an estimate based on the amount of stuff to be moved and the total distance to be traveled. The inventory list given on the phone will invariably be incomplete and so, when the actual loading happens, they will include several other additional charges that can be much higher than the earlier estimated budget. Worse, you might find that there is not enough space on the truck on the actual day of moving.
The ‘more reputable’ moving companies cross country are the ones that personally visit you, check your stuff and then give you an estimate. The companies will give you 3 options to choose from: self-pack, partial pack and full pack. The rates will vary accordingly. Some of them provide you with storage facilities also, with or without extra charges.
To conclude, depending on your requirements, choose the long distance movers wisely. A thorough online research about the companies is a must to avoid any kind of fraudulence.
