As another September 1st Boston Move In Day (a.k.a. Allston Christmas) comes to an end, the team at Olympia Moving & Storage is taking a collective sigh of relief. While today, when 79% of Boston’s leases turn over, means moving chaos for the city, for moving companies Labor Day weekend marks the end of the high volume summer season. We anticipate continuing our hard work through the rest of the year, but Olympia Moving & Storage is looking forward to a moment of R&R after working at capacity all summer!
Meanwhile, the rest of Boston is not used to moving being an integral part of their daily lives, and took to Twitter and Instagram this week to complain, meme, and post their curbside finds. Although a weekend of gridlocked moving trucks is annoying, the results are certainly entertaining!
There were big messes
It’s beginning to look a lot like #AllstonChristmas in Beacon Hill. Oh what fun it is to jump from junk pile to junk pile to get to work.🎄 pic.twitter.com/NsR5snPoZe

Gonna remember this #AllstonChristmas as the one when I saw a shirtless dude riding a bicycle while playing a flute.

@ladygaga Hi since you’re coming to Boston today I think you should put together at least one concert outfit from #AllstonChristmas finds.
