Optional Moving Services
Packing is the most frequently requested optional service. This service involves preparing and packing small items for shipment. Proper packing is critical to ensure your belongings arrive at their new destination unharmed. Packing service fees are dependent upon the amount and materials/supplies used on the job site.
Professional unpacking services utilize our team of experienced movers. As we unpack your items, we take all the boxes and paper with us for recycling or reuse. The move crew can simply be notified on the day of your move, if you prefer to have Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. unpack your new residence.
Storage services are often a necessary component of many moves. Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. is based out of a newly constructed warehouse which provides you with an answer to all your storage needs. We offer both short-term and long-term storage services for your items. The cost of storage is dependent on the size of the shipment and the length of storage. While in storage, your possessions will be fully inventoried and packed in storage units with moving pads. Storage units are used to ensure your items remain secure, clean, and readily retrievable for delivery. If your move requires either short-term or long-term storage, learn more about our storage services or contact a sales associate to discuss further. He or she will be happy to provide you with a very competitive quote.
If you live in Boston proper, you may need a moving truck parking permit to ensure close access to your residence on move day. Parking permits are excellent tools to help control the cost of your move as the move crew will be able to minimize the distance to your door. Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. is bonded by the City of Boston and will arrange for the truck permit while posting them in front of your residence, 72 hrs in advance of your move. Big Foot will post notifications to alert neighbors that our moving truck(s) will be arriving on the particular move date. The parking permit fee is $100 per permit, per truck. Please be sure to discuss potential parking permit needs with your sales associate as he or she can advise you on which Boston and surrounding neighborhoods require the truck parking permit.
Pianos are expensive, they’re heavy, they often have great sentimental value, and they can be extraordinarily difficult to move. Unless, of course, you have the right equipment, training, and people to do the job properly. Whether you are moving a piano by itself or it is part of an entire household move, this service requires special handling and often calls for specialized equipment. Our moving associates are trained in the proper handling of all types of pianos and use specialized dollies, straps, piano boards, and pads to ensure they are transported in a safe and secure manner. If a piano is part of your move, please be sure to discuss this with your sales associate.
