Find Local Boston Movers

Finding local Boston movers can be difficult regardless of the city, but Boston has its own set of challenges that’ll make you want to find the right ones. The Moving Help® Marketplace is your best bet in finding the right moving labor for the right price.

Our Moving Helpers have the experience that other moving companies in Boston might not have to help assist with your move, which is why it’s important to receive the right help.

How Much Do Moving Companies in Boston Cost?

Moving Help has labor-only Service Providers, which means you can have a less expensive move when searching for providers on the Moving Help Marketplace. Rather than trying to find a Boston moving company on your own, you find affordable moving labor to provide all the moving service you need with Moving Help.

Check out the chart below to see how much two helpers for two hours will cost you in Boston.


Why Choose Moving Help? 

Moving Help is your go-to company for finding the best labor-only moving services in your area. Unlike some Boston movers, our local Service Providers offer:

You provide your own moving vehicle, truck rental, moving container, or trailer rental, and you just pay for the labor you need for your belongings.

Moving Help is powered by U-Haul, which has been around since 2002. Our site has unedited reviews posted by real customers. We make it easy for you to scout through our providers’ reviews, which may have hundreds to thousands of reviews, unlike other Boston moving companies that might not have that many reviews.

We also offer Safeload coverage to Service Providers who’ve achieved certain criteria. For our lowest rate, you pay $4 to receive $500 worth of coverage. The most coverage you can receive is paying $22 for 5,000 worth of coverage. If you don’t go with a provider from us, a Boston moving company might not be able to offer that type of coverage for you.

Moving Help also has no cancellation fees, no stair fees, and no hidden fees. You know that the price you pay upfront will be your final cost.

Considerations for Booking Local Movers in Boston

Booking Flexibility

Not sure how you’re going to move yet? That’s OK because you can still book an order with Moving Help. You don’t need all your moving details 1,000 percent hammered down to book on MovingHelp.com.

Address Changes

After booking your order, you can work with your Service Provider on figuring out whether reserving a U-Haul truck rental or reserving a U-Box storage container is best for you. Did your unloading address change or do you finally know where you’ll exactly live now? You can notify your Service Provider.

Date Flexibility

Maybe you were going to move on a Monday, but now you need to move on a Tuesday. As long as your Moving Helper is available for the date change, you can still have your move on a different day. That kind of flexibility might not be available for other Boston movers that aren’t on our Marketplace.

Even if your labor-only Service Provider is unavailable, you can use the same funds you booked with your original provider to find new moving labor.

Service Provider Local Knowledge

If you’re not familiar with the area, it can be quite confusing, and your Moving Helper can help you out. The streets in Boston were not created with modern vehicles in mind, so you should find Service Providers that understand the twists and turns of the city, which a moving company in Boston might not know.

What makes Moving Help great is that our labor-only providers choose their available zones, so they know what areas they’re going to help customers. Some local movers might not know all the locations in Boston, but our Moving Helpers make sure to know their zones.

Collegeboxes Service

Because Boston is home to 35 colleges and universities, you can utilize another service by U-Haul, Collegeboxes. You can use Collegeboxes to store and ship your dorm room belongings.

Boston Is a Historical Hotspot

If you’re headed to Boston, you’re likely interested in American History. The best part of the city is you’re never far from a hidden historic gem once you’re finished moving.

1. The Brattle Book Shop

This unassuming shop is one of the oldest used bookstores in the United States. Founded in 1825, The Brattle Book Shop houses more than 250,000 different items that any antiquarian would be excited to peruse.

The shop deals in anything from affordable postcards to rare, first-edition books priced in the thousands.

2. The Warren Anatomical Museum at Harvard Countway Library

One of the oldest anatomy and pathology museums can be found at Countway Library, Harvard. Inside, you’ll discover the preserved skull of Phineas Gage, a railway worker who survived a devastating accident when a 3 1/2-foot metal rod pierced his skull. This incident reshaped medical understanding of brain injuries.

3. The Arnold Arboretum

Located in the heart of Boston, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University is a 281-acre preserve with a rich collection of North American and Eastern Asian plants. It dates to 1872, with early artifacts from indigenous peoples, the ancestors of the Massachusetts Tribal Nation, dating more than 7,000 years.

The Arboretum also highlights its historical connection to enslaved individuals, reflecting its commitment to acknowledging its past and educating the public.
