Back to School Movers

August 25th, 2014

It’s that time of year again: back to school! College kids from across the country are preparing for the start of the semester; some are moving into dorms, many others are taking that big step into adulthood, and are renting apartments for the first time! If you’re one of the students moving into an apartment, Rare Movers will help with all of your moving needs. S

Schedule an estimate and a moving date today, this is a busy time of year for us, but we still have openings!

We help college students, not only in Boston, but all of the United States! Whether you’re moving to a college across town, across the state, or even across the country, we will help with all of your moving needs.

All you have to do is pickup the phone and schedule a moving date! On the phone, in order to give you an accurate estimate, we will ask you a few specific questions, just to get an idea on what your moving needs are; for example, we will ask the location, parking situations of both locations, how many stairs, and of course, just how much “stuff” are you bringing. The amount of belongings and location are the two most important questions; they will help determine just how much a move may cost.

When we know how much you’re packing, we will be able to determine how big of a truck to bring, and how many crew members to staff.

We are looking forward to helping your move into college be as smooth and stress-free as possible; we understand that college is stressful enough, moving should not be an added pressure!

How to Choose a Moving Company

August 12th, 2014

We know moving is tough, and many of you don’t move enough in your lifetime to make it second nature; we’ve heard horror stories from our clients about previous moving companies, who were either unprofessional, expensive, unreliable, or all three. We are here to help avoid these types of companies, and to select a professional moving company, like Boston Rare Movers!

First off, be sure to pick a moving company four to eight weeks before your moving day; that way you’re not scrambling last minute, and so you can find the cheapest and most reliable company out there. If you wait too long, the good companies will be all booked up. As soon as you have a moving date in mind, start researching moving companies; keep in mind that moving companies are often busy on Fridays and at the end of the month, so plan accordingly!

Then, think of what you need from the moving company; make a quick list of all the things you need help with from the moving company. This list will help us (because let’s face it we’re a very reliable moving company!), offer more accurate quotes because we will know exactly what you need from us, how many crew members we will need, and what supplies we need to provide. Some examples include:

  • Moving Date(s) that work best for you
  • Are you moving Locally, Long Distance or Internationally?
  • Will you need help with Packing, and do you need Packing Supplies?
  • Are you going to Pack Yourself?
  • Are you Moving Valuable or Fragile Items?
  • Do you need Insurance?
  • How much “Stuff” are you Moving?

These are just a few of the things you should have figured out before you even begin to move; if you figure out your move date, and what you need from your moving company, you will find yourself two steps closer to an easier, less stressful moving day!
