Moving to Boston

Posted by Mark Machesky on Jan 22, 2015 12:19:00 PM

People move to Boston for a variety of reasons, as the city has so much to offer and is generally considered a "walking city." If you are moving to Boston, the first question you should be asking yourself is, "When is the ideal time to move to Boston?" And "How much can I afford to pay for rent?"  Those answers vary based on your needs and budget but are important to consider. If you can you want to pick any move-in day that is not August 31 or September 1. The Reason? Boston is a college town, and most leases are structured as year long leases starting September 1 and ending August 31. (College semesters start in September)

You also need to decide which of the many neighborhoods in Boston should you move to. This decision is based entirley upon your budget, however other factors may affect your decision, like whether or not you have your own car.  The neighborhoods in Boston vary greatly in size and location. Neighborhorhoods closer to dowtown generally have higher rents while neighborhoods farther away from the core of the city tend to be relatively inexpensive (Note the "relative" term there). Neighborhoods in Boston include the South End, Southie (Not the same as South end), North End, East Boston or Eastie, Charlestown, Back Bay/Fenway, Mattapan, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain (JP), Dorchester, Roslindale, and Allston/Brighton. Also do not forget adjacent neighborhoods next to  Boston like Cambridge, Somerville, and Quincy.The more expensive neighborhoods include Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the North End. You can find lower rental prices as you head away from the downtown area, in neighborhoods such as Allston/Brighton or Dorchester and Jamaica Plain.

Don't Forget Your Packing Supplies!

Posted by Mark Machesky on Jan 12, 2015 10:11:00 PM


 

Packing is arguably the most important part of moving. People who need to move tend to worry about their furniture first and everything in boxes second. It seems that once something is in a box the, "out of sight, out of mind" mentality begins to take shape and people shift their focus towards item in view.

Understanding Moving Minimums

Posted by Mark Machesky on Nov 19, 2014 11:19:00 AM

These days, finding a good reputable mover is hard enough. So imagine someone's disappointment when they put in the effort to find a great mover, only to find out that that mover has a high minimum and is going to charge them more than what they are actually moving. When that happens, you are left with the difficult choice of either paying more than you would normally have to in order to move with your preferred mover, or you take the chance with the less expensive mover, who you probably do not feel as comfortable with moving your items as you would using your first choice.

Tips to Help Make Your Move Easier

Posted by Mark Machesky on Oct 30, 2014 4:27:37 PM

There is a reason why people dislike moving. Just the planning process alone is enough to make even the experienced mover crazy. Moving, in general, has a reputation for not being fun or exciting. A study inquiring about what stresses out Americans the most yielded the following results; Death, divorce, and moving. Now, anyone who has never moved before will shrug this off as people over reacting but to the people who have moved before, especially more than once, they have a 100% understanding of why moving belongs in that stressful category.
