Moving with Monster Movers
Great movers in MA
We used the movers to move my sister and mom up from florida to Massachusetts- they did a great job packing and getting the furniture ready to be moved. I highly recommend them for a long distance move
Excellent move 2 pickups 3 destinations - great moving crews
Overall great movers - recommended by a friend and glad I used them. The protected all furniture and walls and floors.
Great choice if you are looking for Boston movers - used for a local apartment move after a successful long distance move from New York. Great service ever and even better prices. Compared to other highly regarded movers in the area - I would estimate they are about 10-20% less expensive.
I interviewed dozens of Boston movers for two moves that I had - one was a personal move of my apartment in Westborough MA to Port Chester, NY the other was for my 5 person office from Cambridge to NYC. Both long distance moves were exactly as I expected and I will refer them to others. Both moving crews were exceptional and were very professional. They were able to secure insurance certificates that my management companies required without additional charges and at the last minute. Office staff did a great job following up and making sure all of my questions were answered in a timely manner.
I've used Monster twice and recommended to friends who also used them. In fact, we were coordinating moving furniture between three different houses on different days, and MM handled all of it very well. We had only one incident of damage (a piece of glass for a tabletop which cracked) and they quickly replaced it, no hassle, no questions, it was just replaced. I was traveling for work and my wife managed one of the moves. She had no issues with the movers and they even set up some of the furniture for her, due to the size and weight.
They were a cost effective solution and were available on short notice. We did tip them (generously) but even with the tip, they were far less expensive than other services we spoke with.
I'd recommend them and use them again for my next move.
Great movers. Used for a local move Boston to Cambridge. No damage, friendly people.
“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet
In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.
A relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season. It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!
The 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name. Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground and was shocked when his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute. The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.
