On the Move: Belmont, MA

Location: Belmont, MA

A Belmont-to-Belmont move | May 2019

Move Overview

Flowers and fresh green grass lit up the front of this charming single family home in Belmont. We sent four movers and one truck to complete this partial pack, load, and deliver. The job was completed in one day between the two Belmont locations.

This move posed some unique challenges. The front door opened into a cornered staircase, so every item on the truck had to be carried up to the second floor at an odd angle. There were also a few items that needed to be disposed of at the destination, including a large sofa.

The move went quickly, however, and our team definitely enjoyed the warm weather after a long, cold spring. Plenty of birds from the next-door park cheered our movers on during the move.

Partial Packing

The move also involved the packing of antique mirrors and lamps. The homeowners packed a large portion of their own items, but they requested that Olympia pack their more fragile items. A partial pack can ease the stress on homeowners who want to do most of their own packing, but are unsure about handling delicate items. In this case, several mirrors and lamps needed protective packaging for the journey. Thanks to our crew, everything arrived at their destination safe and sound.

Olympia offers partial and complete packing services to its customers as part of the move process. We can also provide packing materials to the DIY homeowner.

Great feedback from our client

“This team was extraordinarily thoughtful and felt their way into our needs in such a way to leave us feeling very satisfied and in fact quite pleased…” the homeowner wrote in their review. “In particular we appreciated how the team took the time to move the furniture into positions in our new home that were pleasing to us as well as to disassemble and reassemble those pieces that needed to be separated and reassembled in order to be moved from our previous residence to our new home.”

“Lastly, we were deeply touched by the fact that one member of the team took the time to remake two beds that had been transported from our previous residence to our new home,” the homeowner told us. “As a result of all these factors, we felt the entire team was doing all possible to make us happy and comfortable in our new home. Thank you all.”

Moving From: A picturesque Wellesley, MA neighborhood

Moving To: Minneapolis, Minnesota

When: June 2018

Interstate Moving From Wellesley, MA

This client was moving from a 5-bedroom home in Wellesley to a new home across the country to Minnesota. This is a large interstate move, so Olympia’s moving consultant, Ida, created a custom moving plan. The move required a 4 man crew. The Olympia team did three days of packing, and then loaded the truck over two days. The client’s belongings then went into storage for about a month before being delivered to their new home in August.

Storage For Interstate Moves

Clients often need storage as part of an interstate move. In this case, the client had to vacate their home in Massachusetts in June but did not need to move to their new home in Minnesota until August. Olympia solved this problem by storing everything in their private, secure warehouse nearby in Mansfield, MA. A few weeks prior to when the shipment was due in Minnesota, our interstate driver picked up the shipment from our warehouse to transport it across the country and deliver it to their new home.

Packing For Interstate Moves

The Olympia team provided full packing services for this interstate move. As it was a larger home, the team worked over three days to complete all the boxing and furniture packing. Packing services relieve a lot of the stress and work of a move, especially when there are so many other to dos to consider when moving to a new state.

Moving across the country is a big change! Olympia is a part of Wheaton World Wide Moving, a network that connects us with 350+ moving companies nationwide. This partnership combines Olympia’s dedication to complete customer satisfaction with Wheaton’s commitment to professionalism and excellent service. This way you will receive the same outstanding service on both ends of your interstate move

On the Move | Bedford Moving Services

Moving From: A cozy residential neighborhood in Lexington, MA

Moving To: Close to center Bedford, MA, a quaint town west of Boston

When: July 2018

Lexington & Bedford Moving Services

This client was moving from a 5-bedroom home in Lexington to a new house in Bedford. One of Olympia’s moving consultants, Ida, planned the move to take place over 5 consecutive days.

Each day the Olympia team performed a partial pack, load, and deliver, moving room by room. Each room in the Lexington home was packed and then delivered into the Bedford home one by one, over the course of the 5 days. This plan minimizes the stress of moving for the family. It allows them to remain in some rooms of the home in the midst of the move, and settle into the new home in stages.

The crew was led by Gabe for all 5 days to ensure continuity.

Using a Professional Organizer for Your Move

For this move, Olympia worked in conjunction with a professional organizer. This is the best option for customers who want the complete moving experience without lifting a finger. As Olympia delivered each room to the new residence, the organizer was on site to unpack the boxes and expertly put away the contents. Therefore, the family had completely set-up rooms when they moved into the new home, minimizing interruption in their lives. Olympia is happy to work with your professional organizer, or recommend one, to assist in your move.

Special Items Moved

One of the items the client needed moved was an all-in-one gym equipment system. Olympia worked with one of our partner specialists to disassemble and reassemble the gym equipment so our crew could move it safely. The client also had a marble top that needed to be crated for in-transit protection.

Luxury Moving Services

If you have any expensive artwork or other valuable items that are a part of your move, Olympia will be able to safely and securely transport your valuables. We often build custom crating, moving gym equipment, and transporting pool tables. Any specialty moving service you need, we will execute.

Moving large houses like this one takes a longer time to plan and execute. Call your movers well in advance to lock your dates in place and start the planning process. Take into consideration that the summer is the busiest time of the year for moving companies, and schedules fill up faster.

When: June 2018

Boston Moving Services

This client needed a full-service move on very tight deadlines. Olympia’s moving consultant, Ida, planned the move to take place over three days.

The Olympia team performed a full pack of the home on the first day. The next day our five man crew loaded the belongings into two trucks. One truck was bound for New York City. The other was going back to our local warehouse for long-term storage. Prior to departure, our crew removed all debris and broom-swept the house to ensure it was ready for closing. On the third day Olympia delivered the shipment to New York.

The crew was headed by Gabe all three days to ensure continuity.

Special Items Olympia Moved

This client had unique, expensive pieces as well as high value artwork and light fixtures. It is routine for Olympia to manage high end items. Olympia worked with our partner who specializes in crating valuable art, chandeliers, and gold leaf frames. The Olympia dedicated moving coordinator also arranged for an electrician partner to properly remove the chandelier from the ceiling.

Considerations for Boston Moving from Commonwealth Avenue

Homes in the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood are the epitome of beautiful Boston architecture, but the area is particularly challenging for a move. This luxury home was a third-floor walk up. Olympia also had to order a few parking permits to ensure they could park right in front of the home on the resident-only street parking on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall.
