How do I choose the best long-distance moving company in Boston?

Thumbtack Editors

The right company for your long-distance move will have skilled drivers and careful movers who know how to get the job done quickly and safely. The traffic in Boston, and even outside the city, is notorious for slowing down drivers. 

Make sure your movers are licensed by the Department of Public Utilities if you’re moving within Massachusetts. Look for a company with a solid safety record and drivers who are experienced in navigating the city and its surrounding towns.

As you’re comparing the best long-distance movers in Boston, take note of the movers’ reviews and ratings. You’ll want to hire movers who provide quality work, show up on time and are easy to work with. And get estimates from several companies who fit your criteria to ensure you pay a fair price.
