Things to Consider Before Moving to Chicago from Boston

Both of these world class cities are incredible. Job opportunities, universities, entertainment, people, music — you can find all of this in both cities. Yet, there are several differences to consider before moving to Chicago from Boston. 

Housing prices in Boston are higher, and a lot of so-called affordable apartments are old and haven’t been renovated in a long time. Housing prices in the Windy City are typically lower and very dependent on the location. On average, renting an apartment in Chicago is $700 cheaper than doing it in Boston. For example, renting a one bedroom apartment in downtown Chicago, IL costs $1,800 a month, whereas in Boston the average price is around $2,600. With Boston salaries being higher by only 6%, these numbers can be a determining factor for choosing to move to Chicago from Boston.

Overall, Chicago wins in terms of city life/nightlife, cost of living, diversity, and domestic travel. Boston wins in terms of public safety, history, proximity to nature, and travel to Europe.

Octopus moving managed to squeeze our relocation in their schedule on a busy day and arrive on time early in the morning. Alex responded quickly. Great communication, kept in touch throughout the trip. Their furniture delivery services are highly recommended.

Octopus Moving packed up the whole three-bedroom plus a cellar home of ours in about 7 hours. The move was completed the next day - we had been preparing to move to another state for a long time and Octopus helped us tremendously. They FLAWLESSLY wrapped all of our furnishings and communicated well during the process. They disassembled our furniture and packed it up. They handled every box, whether marked as fragile or not, with utmost care. Not a single thing broke! Hire them and enjoy the most satisfying moving quotes in town!

Friends recommended you guys as the best moving company. I had long planned to move. The apartment in Back Bay was small and cluttered with stuff, also uninhabited for months for a number of reasons and I had long wanted to take things and some furniture into my house in Florida. It all seemed to me so troublesome but in reality everything turned out to be easy. The guys carefully packed everything and took it down from the third floor w/ no elevator. Everything arrived in the house undamaged. I would like to thank you so much for helping me with this difficult task.

Octopus Moving helped us move to Cambridge a few days ago. Our first time hiring local movers while staying in the Boston area and we didn’t regret this decision. The guys were gentle with the furniture. I had a lot of stuff and they packed everything carefully. Everything was beyond my expectations and the rates were quite reasonable. I can recommend this crew to anyone looking for reliable and cheap moving companies in Boston.

The team was patient and friendly, I have no complaints. The overall quality of the move and furniture delivery could be rated as 5/5 and stress-free. All of our stuff arrived without a single damage at the destination, which is amazing. I mean the destination was a thousand miles away, interstate. I called a few moving companies among which was this one and booked them for the following week. Everything went on as scheduled. Actually, I had moved long-distance previously and know what I’m talking about.

Alex and his team were professional and friendly. They arrived on time and operated fast during the entire process. Notwithstanding a heavy rain everything went smoothly. They confirmed with us about every minor detail to make sure the job was completely finished. For sure I will recommend Octopus Movers. This was the first time we hired a moving company and storage space and I must say these guys completely met my needs.

These guys did a great job! Very responsive and efficient, they wrapped each piece of furniture and delivered everything carefully and quickly. I would definitely recommend.

They came on time and wrapped/packed all the fragile artwork I have, all of it arrived in perfect shape. My piano was even less protected the time it was first delivered to me! A move was more of a short distance one (within West End) nevertheless very important. How much do these movers cost? Well, they came in at the lower end of the estimate. Lower than the competition.

These two men were on time, worked quickly, wrapped everything like it was “fine China” and packaged it up. They put it all in the truck and brought it to the new apartment. We had put templates on the floor and they placed the furniture exactly where it was supposed to be. I could not praise these movers more.

We needed help moving from one office to another (both in the same neighborhood). Octopus moving was recommended by our partner, they also recently moved to a new office and were very pleased with the employees of this company. We needed help with packing too, which was done properly and quickly. Not a single thing was broken or scratched.

The other day I had to move to another apartment. A small 1 bedroom move with lots of fragile items. We ordered a truck with two movers. There was no freight elevator in the house we moved to. Thought it would take a long time but the guys carried the sofa and the bed up the stairs so quickly that after a couple of hours I was enjoying my time sitting in front of the TV. All in all: outstanding job done by professionals. No time wasting. Best in Boston. Definitely perfect for small moves within the same neighborhood.

This was the best moving experience I have had and the team made it as easy as possible for me. They came and moved all of our furniture very quickly and re-built the furniture with no damage. I would HIGHLY recommend
