When moving your possessions, you want to work with someone you can trust. We in Cross Country Movers know that your personal belongings are much more than that – they are woven into your life.

Therefore, to have a final checklist that complies with your items in the boxes, your packing process should be done correctly.

Professional Packing Services

The packing process is a tedious and backbreaking work you should leave to our skillful staff. They can perform it more efficiently and precisely. Packing all your life into boxes might be quite daunting and stressful. Whether you’re handling your keepsakes or items that bring back memories, you may become extremely emotional and sensitive. These possessions require a careful approach when it comes to choosing the right packing materials.

If you don’t have enough supplies necessary to wrap and pack your valuables properly, you should leave that job to our Cross Country Movers wizards. Simply put, to avoid possible damage, regrets, and above all, financial expenses due to material losses, entrust all these preliminary steps to us.

Packing Supplies

Whether you’re going to pack your items yourself or plan to hire professional packers to do it instead of you, one thing is sure – we can provide you with all essentials including:

  • Boxes
  • Corrugated boxes
  • Packing paper
  • Bubble wrap
  • Moving kits
  • Blankets and pads
  • Plastic boxes
  • Tape
  • Cushioning

After we create your inventory list, we can make the evaluation and map out the necessary details. You can purchase all the materials you need, or you may leave it to our professional crew to come and pack your belongings safely before loading them into trucks.

Storage Units We Offer

If you have to move out of your home but can’t bring all your things with you at the time, it’s all right – we’ll keep them secure and safe until you are ready to take them. With temporary storage, we have you covered. Your beloved stuff will be safe in private temperature-controlled units. And that’s not all – we give you a whole month of storage for free!

Car Shipping Options

Do you want your relocation to be a complete no-brainer? Then it’s crucial to take care of your precious vehicle properly. Many people opt for shipping services, and this can be a quite affordable option to get your car to the final destination. With Cross Country Movers, you can get a significant car shipping discount if you choose combined services. It’s up to you to choose the right transport for your car – open or closed trailer shipping.

Open Auto Transport

Open car transport is the industry standard and the cheapest way for movers to transport your vehicle. However, if you choose this option, you should request an insurance policy from the shipping company and avoid worries and stress.

Enclosed Auto Transport

If you want to be sure that your car is completely protected, then the enclosed auto hauler is perfect for you. Keep in mind that this service requires more money, but if your vehicle is a luxury or classic model, or has a low profile, the peace of mind is worth the price.

Insurance is Always a Good Idea

With moving insurance, you can rest assured that your belongings are protected during a move. Depending on your policy, it can cover anything from fires and floods to a mover’s accidental slips.

Technically, all relocation companies are required (under federal law) to provide you with valuation options. So, you can opt for three different options available to you:

  • Released value protection
  • Full-value protection
  • Third-party insurance

If you have any questions or dilemmas about what insurance you should pick, don’t hesitate to call Cross Country Movers. We’ll provide you with all the details and necessary answers about the guarantee that can be tailored to your budget and needs.

Is Boston a Good Place to Live?

Officially, The Hub has 23 neighborhoods crammed with enclaves and micro-neighborhoods. That being said, before you pack your belongings, do some research about this city jammed with breathtaking nature, high-performing school districts, and vibrant cultural scene.

Relocation to the capital of Massachusetts will give you excellent job opportunities, top-notch healthcare, and various cultural experiences. Known as the Athens of America, it is considered one of the top cities to live in the USA.

Things to Know Before Moving to Boston

Boston’s vibrant neighborhoods have a unique atmosphere and residents from all over the globe. This means that you can choose the district that suits yours and your family’s needs, from those truly authentic, such as Dorchester, to West Roxbury, with a tight-knit community and laid-back ambiance.

If you prefer a healthy life, you’ll be happy to learn that sports have a crucial role in the lives of Bostonians. You can enjoy basketball or soccer games all year round and even become a member of a sports club. That’s why Boston is often dubbed the City of Champions. But that’s not all. The city is packed with many museums, parks, and historical sites – these spots could improve your quality of life and bring plenty of cultural events and exciting activities into your daily routine.

Education Opportunities

Are you a parent? If so, you’ll be thrilled by the fact that the Athens of America offers excellent educational institutions like MIT and Harvard. If you want to give your children the best possible schooling, this is the place to be. Also, the Public Library is the first primary public library in America, where you can find all the essential books both for you and your kids.

Summers here are usually warm, while winters are icy and wet. Throughout the year, the temperature generally varies from 23°F to 82°F. The best time of year to visit the capital of Massachusetts is from late June to mid-September when the temperatures are high, and tourism is at its peak.

If you’re a fan of winter months, you’ll like living in a city with all four seasons – the snowy period of the year lasts from November to April. The snowiest month is February, with an average of more than 34 inches.

Are Living Costs in Boston High?

When it comes to housing, utilities, and transportation, they are 107% (housing expenses) and 41% (utility prices) higher than the national average. With a household income of over $120,000, Boston is ranked one of the priciest cities in America.
