I have moved Seven times over the past 25 years

I have moved Seven times over the past 25 years that I have lived in Boston. From the South End to the cramped streets of Beacon Hill to the narrow staircases of the North End. I have always utilized the assistance of my family and friends. Now with move number ten I decided I needed professionals movers in Boston as my body at this age couldn’t handle another move, not to mention my friends and family couldn’t either. I turned to YELP for assistance and found Anton’s.

Booking the move was a breeze which I did online and confirmed on the phone. They gave a very accurate quote.  As moving day approached, so did my anxiety. Did I pack right? Would everything fit in the truck? What do I do while they move my stuff? Do I pitch in and help? Will the truck fit in. My new driveway?

Also in July 2012 I was moving from New York to Boston and I used Benny’s Moving long distance truck it was great experience and the total move coast around $2000

On moving day, I received a confirmation call about 30 minutes before they arrived. My team of three men arrived and were ready to go. They were very professional, skilled, strong and efficient. I was very impressed and very happy with their speed and attention to detail. They wrapped furniture, mirrors and tv’s very well. Nothing broke during the move. I was impressed with the organization of my stuff in the truck! Not to mention how the driver navigated my tight driveway!

I would not hesitate to use them again. They exceeded my expectations and took away my anxiety!

I moved from Waltham to Brighton with Fastlines Movers

I called Fastlines Movers for a short move within Waltham to Brighton . Very smooth, fast and stress-free.  Direct and to the point.  Three movers showed up five minutes early and got to work.  Stuff went in truck – drove to new apartment, then everything was unloaded to my specification and we were done.

They even gracefully dealt with an unexpected complication when there were illegally-parked cars in my designated and permitted moving space.
Moving is one of the worst things one will ever go through, but I have to say that this step in my process was definitely the easiest.  The entire move was done in about an hour and a half (this was for a small one-bedroom-sized amount of stuff).

I received a quote over the phone very quickly from the moving company in Waltham.  Nothing was broken.  Everyone was very easy to talk to and I knew all the details at every step of the process.  I will work with them again, for sure.

Moving it from Boston to New York

I used Benny’s moving from Boston to New York, with 2 months’ storage in between. They came to my place, picked everything up, put it in storage for two months and then brought everything to my new place in New York City.

The move couldn’t have gone smoother. David replies quickly and has great communication. They are very up front with costs and anything extra, for example I needed a couple large picture frame boxes which they provided at pretty much the same price i would have paid at home depot. The Three guys showed up on time and worked super quickly but carefully. They disassembled my ikea bed and helped me take down my curtain rods. The guys were total pros and very friendly and they gave us free mattress covers and free packing tape.

There were no problems when I called to schedule the delivery to New York, and they showed up around 7:30am after driving over from Boston (I didn’t even have to take time off from work). To be honest, I was a bit concerned about how my mostly Ikea furniture would hold up to moving, but with the exception of a few nicks and bumps it came out unscathed. The only casualties were a couple cheap wine glasses that I probably didn’t pack too well. It took them a little over a half hour to unload everything (one bedroom worth of stuff) including assembling my bed back together. I think the total for moving my stuff from my apartment in Boston to their storage, storing it there for two months, and moving it from Boston to New York came to about $1750 with tip. Well worth the money, to my opinion I think they are the best moving company in Boston.

These guys are awesome!

These movers are awesome! We used them 3 times to move from a condo in Boston to a house in the suburbs. Half of our stuff was in the condo, the other half was in  storage unit, and in the middle of it all we had to meet with our lawyer for an hour so they were on their own, and were totally competent. They worked so quickly and did an awesome job, and at a far more reasonable price than movers we’ve used in the past.

Once we got to the house, they were careful to put  all boxes in their correct rooms which really minimized any additional moving/heavy lifting that they would have to do. Since they were with us through lunchtime, we ordered them pizza, and they took 15 minutes off the final cost of their services for the lunch break- totally unnecessary, but goes to show how conscientious they are about their work. In addition to working quickly and effectively, they’re very nice guys.

This was one of our best moving experiences overall, I’d definitely recommend Benny’s moving!

Best Movers In Boston


I needed professional movers in Boston at the very last minute on the last weekend of the month during the summer, so basically everyone was already booked up. I used their online estimating tool, and someone called me 15 minutes later. They booked me for the evening, which was all they had left for the day.

I called Benny’s Moving in the middle of the day to see if they thought they would be running on time, and they told me around 5:45. Literally at 5:44, the movers showed up. I booked 2 guys, and they sent 3. They looked at my stuff and said, “is that it?!” [For the record, I own a full, well-furnished  One bedroom apartment’s worth of stuff

They had everything in the truck is half an hour. They were finishing up and so my BFF and I decided to go ahead to the new place.


They had everything unloaded quickly, and they charged me only for the 2 guys I had booked.

I will never ever, ever try to bribe my poor friends to move me with pizza and beer when I can pay these guys less than $500 to move me without hassle.
