Moving Companies are a dime-a-dozen in the Boston-area, so its tempting to pick the company that offers the lowest rates, but who are you REALLY hiring to handle all your Worldly Possessions? Do you care whether the movers you hire are earning a Living Wage? At TOGM, we believe that high staff retention translates to a team that shares the philosophy we’ve instilled.
As a Boston-Based Small-Business, it is our responsibility to lead by example and work to strengthen our community. Through our Contributions to the Community and our Fair-Labor Practices we strive to set ourselves apart from the ever-growing list of competition in the Moving Industry.
The Alliance for Business Leadership has nominated The Other Guys Moving Company for the The Company You Should Know Award to be presented at their 2017 Give Back Awards on November 16. We are honored to be named as One of Four Finalists for The Award.
Our Mission as Small-Business Owners is to make a positive impact on our community. We Pledge our continued support to Local Organizations that work with Marginalized Communities, Children and those who are Less Fortunate.
By supporting Small-Businesses with a similar Mission, you contribute to a better Boston.

IN THE COMMUNITY
TOGM is an active part of the community, working to build a better Boston for Everyone. We support our country’s active military and veterans by offering discounts and employment opportunities.
In 2017, The Other Guys Moving Company has donated time, equipment, resources and/ or made financial contributions to the following organizations (and we’re not done yet!):
The Other Guys Moving Company serves all corners of MA, including moves from or to anywhere in the continental United States. Our unique approach to Interstate Moves has garnished praise from customers near and far. TOGM handles long distance moves from start to finish rather than contracting with freight shippers or trucking companies, so you know who’s accountable for your belongings.
“[In 2014] we gave The Other Guys a Best of Boston Home award for their superior moving, storage, and packing services. But they don’t just go the extra mile with their Massachusetts moves: They’ve proven themselves to be a go-to company for out-of-state moves, with a high percentage of their five-star reviews describing moves between Boston and such far-flung locales as Minneapolis, Bloomington, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and Philadelphia.”
I've used TOGM twice, and was very impressed with my experience. The first time, they accommodated an ever-changing timeline (at the beginning of September) and always went out of their way to be kind, helpful, and make a very stressful time easier. The Other Guys puts everyone else to shame.
Two words: utterly fantastic. We ended up doing a full service move, which means they packed up all of our belongings on one day and then loaded, moved and unloaded our belongings a couple of days later. The entire process was smooth and phenomenally efficient. These guys are strong, smart, and don't stop working. Final Comment: Hire them. I will the next time we move.
I wish I would have known about these guys during the 7 years I lived in Boston! This company was affordable, provided quality service and the employees were fun to be around - I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone!
Just used the Other Guys and they were great. Walter, Devon and Carlton were top notch. They were fast, efficient, flexible with how we wanted things and great with our kids. They're simply all around good dudes that I wouldn't hesitate to use again.
The team was fast, efficient, professional, and courteous. The move wasn't large, but it was slightly complicated and they handled it perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend them, and will use them again in the future.
I hired TOGM to move my belongings to storage and then to move it out to Bloomington, IN where I was hired to work at IU. When I found a place in Bloomington, Jane and Julius were very quick to set up a time to meet me to move in my belongings. I would recommend TOGM to anyone living in Boston and I would certainly use them again.
They are as good as the reviews are..I had to relocate to Minneapolis from Boston, I can go on and on about other things, but I could not have made a better choice for moving with them, the experience of moving, which is normally "stressful", is fun with these guys..highly recommend.
Julius to the rescue... The other guys moving came thru in an emergency when the original movers (another company) did not show up as scheduled. We were at the beginning of a move from Boston to Portland. The other guys moving is the best moving company I've ever worked with...and I've moved over 15 times. I will be recommending the other guys moving company to all my coworkers!
We just did a move from Boston metro to Maine - a 2.5 hour drive. Falco, Hector, and Jimmy were awesome! Great guys and great movers: they were professional, intelligent and super nice. We'll definitely use them again, and will recommend them to friends...5 stars - for sure!
We chose The Other Guys Moving Co. based upon the recommendation of our real estate broker and were absolutely delighted with the service we received. Walter, Mario and Casper came to the house on time, packed and unpacked everything carefully. Three great guys who made the moving experience a lot less stressful. We would definitely recommend The Other Guys Moving Co.
These guys are awesome! They came on time, worked quickly, and were careful with my things. Not only are they extremely professional, they are also fun loving and personable; I highly recommend them.
The Other Guys did an outstanding job with my move from Waltham, MA to Brooklyn, NY. The move included a piano and delicate sound equipment. It was all handled extremely thoughtfully and everything from the communication with the office pre-move to the actual move itself was a class act.
I have used TOGM half a dozen times for apartment moves and furniture deliveries. Their rates have to be close to the lowest in Greater Boston - esp for comparable service - and they are easy to schedule - even on very short notice. I wouldn't use any other mover.
We decided to use The Other Guys Moving Co. based on all the positive Yelp reviews, and we were not disappointed! Mario and Walter showed up on schedule, and were professional, polite, funny and efficient. Overall, we were very pleased and would definitely recommend!
I hired The Other Guys after researching which Boston companies offer hoist services. I live on the third-floor in a triple decker and my couch & boxspring wouldn't fit down the stairwell. Julius & Jimmy were great and worth every penny. They wrapped the couch and lowered it off the third floor porch without a problem. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.
Here are some helpful hints to make moving day as quick and efficient as possible!
Moving is a perfect time to “reduce your inventory.” Before packing, sort through your belongings into three categories: KEEP, DONATE and TOSS. Sorting through years of accumulation can be overwhelming–contact us for additional tips and resources to help with this daunting task!
Organization is Priority One–box and label your belongings by room (i.e.-bedroom, kitchen, living room, etc.) Be sure to mark boxes of fragile items with large writing on all sides. For more complicated moves, color-coordinating and numbering are helpful, as well.
Newly refinished floors or new carpets? No problem! Let us know in advance so we can come prepared with proper protection.
You can enlist TOGM’s help with securing a street occupancy permit for the moving truck (or you can get it yourself at City Hall or your town office). This allows us to tow cars from the designated area on moving day–ensuring space for the truck. If your building has a loading dock/ area and freight elevator, it is YOUR responsibility to reserve these for moving day.
It is ideal to pack TVs, stereo components and small appliances in their original boxes–this guarantees a sure fit and smooth transport. Didn’t keep the boxes? Amazon.com or Home Depot are good resources for boxes of all shapes and sizes.
Moving can be stressful and confusing to young children and pets. To cut down on commotion, make arrangements for children to stay with family or a sitter during the move. Pets should also be secured in a bathroom, crate, or yard.
Do your part–PREPARATION is the key to staying on budget! Disassembling furniture, boxing all miscellaneous items, and having everything ready when the crew arrives will help ensure an efficient move.
