With a historical marker on nearly every street corner, Boston is a place that is supremely proud of its place in our nation’s history.

Beyond that, you can take a trip to the Bunker Hill Monument, a glorious 221-foot granite obelisk dedicated to the Battle of Bunker Hill. If you want to live in a city founded in history, Boston is the place to do that.

Finally, one of the top reasons for moving to Boston can be found in the city’s top-rated healthcare system. There are few places where you’ll find as many top-rated hospitals than in Boston. In fact, people from all over the country travel to Boston for the unrivaled healthcare that is found here.

Moving Tips

Feeling more confident that Poseidon Moving and Storage is the right team of movers for your move to Boston? As you prepare for your move, we want to help in any way that we can. That means, aside from offering the best moving services available, we also want to give you a couple of moving tips that can make all the difference as you prepare. Here’s a couple of tips from our movers to make your move to Boston even simpler!

The first moving tip that we have to offer involves decluttering as much as possible in preparation for your move. After all, packing all of your possessions into boxes, bags, and more can certainly be overwhelming. Make this process a bit easier on yourself by cutting back on excess clutter as much as possible. Before you ever pack a single box, do a purge of any useless or unneeded items. Not only will you have less to pack but you will also have less to move and unpack on moving day! This way, you can start your new life in Boston off on a cleaner slate.

Secondly, we highly recommend packing as far in advance as possible. Ideally, you’ll know that you’re moving to Boston weeks or even months in advance of moving day itself. Use this extra time to start packing as soon as possible. Start with off-season items that you won’t miss in between now and the time you move. From there, many items will already be ready to go and this will make the entire packing process much less frustrating and time-consuming. Don’t let yourself get worried about whether or not you’ll have everything packed in time- start early! Good luck!
