weston movers

 

Not everyone wants to live or retire in busy cities, so quiet and idyllic places remain a top choice for many. In Massachusetts, there are only a few places with these characteristics that are still near major urban areas. One of these is Weston, a beautiful town that’s a few minutes away from downtown Boston. This suburban slice of paradise offers many attractions, safe streets, and plenty of establishments for various needs. Keep reading to learn more about Weston and its wonders.

A Quick History of Weston, MA

Before learning about present-day Weston, let’s first talk about its history to give more context. It was initially a part of Watertown in the 17th century, but it wasn’t a productive land for farming or water-powered industries because of the rocky topography. However, it remained an important location since the main route to Boston passed through the town.

Eventually, the wealthy businessmen from Boston saw the rural charm of Weston. Since there were lower property taxes here, Weston saw many of the elite moving and building their homes on the land. After the Second World War, the town experienced exponential growth. Thankfully, they made sure to preserve the rural beauty of Weston — a characteristic that still endures today.

Life in Weston, MA

Weston was once ranked last in a list of worst places to live in Massachusetts — an objective marker of the town’s outstanding living conditions. It’s arguably one of the best places to stay in the entire state, with the lowest crime rates, magnificent historical homes, and plenty of space to grow a family. It’s also a great place to retire.

For nature lovers, Weston has plenty of pristine parks, forests, and bodies of water perfect for swimming and exploring. While the nightlife is low key, youthful spirit is still prevalent here thanks to the many colleges within the town.

Cost of Living

Weston has one of the highest concentrations of millionaires in the US. Unfortunately, this makes the cost of living far above the national average. The biggest expense for a household is housing since many of the properties here are on the higher end of the market. In addition, energy and food take up huge chunks of a family’s budget. As of writing, the cost of living in Weston is at 251.2, which is more than twice the national average.

Housing Market

Buying a house in Weston will require significant financing. The median home value is at $1,270,000 as of writing, which is a whopping amount compared to the national average. In addition, most homes are owned. According to Niche, less than 15% of properties in Weston are for lease. The historic and generational homes of Weston explain this disparity.

Best Neighborhoods

There are some amazing neighborhoods in the Weston area. The best neighborhoods include;

  • Hastings: Located on the northern side of Weston, Hastings is the home of the “urban sophisticates,” with many dining options, art and culture galleries, and theaters for entertainment.
  • Silver Hill: As a historic district, the Silver Hill neighborhood contains some of the oldest, turn-of-the-century properties. The uniform architecture and varied topography of the area make Silver Hill one of the most idyllic locations in Weston.
  • Weston Estates: Parts of the Weston Estate neighborhood spill over to Wayland, but it still retains the rural charm Weston is known for.

Education

For those who plan to start a family in Weston, there are plenty of high-caliber academic institutions within the town. Weston Middle School and Weston High School are the top choices, but there are also other private institutions. These include the Cambridge School of Weston and Gifford School, both known for their comprehensive curricula and impressive alumni. Regis College is one of the two institutions for undergraduate and graduate studies, with the other one being Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary. The latter focuses mainly on religious studies.

Crime and Safety

Weston boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the entire country, making it one of the most secure places to live in. When you move, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your family is safe from those who might want to harm you. In fact, the only crime of concern here is theft. But the numbers are still far below the national average.

Attractions and Things to Do

Visit Museums and Art Galleries

Weston has three museums that showcase the rich history of the town and surrounding region. Come and check out the Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History, the Weston Historical Museum, and the Golden Ball Tavern Museum.

Tour the Historic Districts

As we’ve mentioned, Weston is dotted with historical homes and neighborhoods. So even if you’re moving to the more modern properties, you can still spend an afternoon touring the more historic districts like Silver Hill. You’ll discover Victorian homes, significant landmarks, and old establishments restored to look like new.

Go Skiing

The Weston Ski Track is a popular cross-country skiing destination located in the southern portion of Weston. Since it’s near Boston, this attraction welcomes many city folks during the cold months. So if you love winter sports, then this place is a must-visit.

Dining Options

There’s a diverse selection of restaurants in Weston, ranging from luxury establishments to artsy coffee houses. Dumpling Daughter is one of the most popular locations offering savory Chinese fare. There’s also Theo’s Pizzeria and Grill for your Italian cravings, and numerous other places offering cuisines from all over the world.

I've used a lot of moving crews, this one was far and away the best. Not only were they very fast, they were extremely careful with my stuff from start to finish. They even moved my baby grand piano for me! Thanks to Manuel, Omar, Oscar, and Juan for the professionalism and attention to detail.

Our recent local move experience with Boston Best Rate Movers was very good. Two movers arrived on time, listened to our needs and got to work immediately.

We’ve used three different moving companies in the Boston area and Boston Best Rate Movers was by far the best experience. no one can compete there Movers Boston services. The two guys were on time and super efficient - we had mostly large furniture to move and it took them less than 2 hours. They were very respectful and careful. The hourly rate was the lowest of our three moving experiences too. Thank you for a smooth move!

I have used Boston Best Rate Movers for 3 moves (two interstate and one local within Greater Boston) and have been extremely pleased each time. The prices are reasonable and the moving crew works quickly and efficiently (in addition to being personable and easy to work with). I have been especially impressed by the fact that the crew arrived each time promptly at the beginning of the scheduled window and took great care of both the furniture and the residence (which was a particular concern for my most recent move, given that the walls had recently been given a fresh coat of paint). I would use Boston Best Rate Movers again for any future move without hesitation.

We hired this company to move our stuff from the storage unit to the apartment. I was particularly concerned with some fragile items and I have to say they did a great job moving everything carefully with no damage. They were very polite, ON TIME, efficient and a good value. They didn't change me anything extra to get my stuff on the 3rd floor and unpacked big items I asked them for. You can tell, that they really care about providing good service and care about their reputation. I will def use them again, when we will be moving to our house.

I really can't say enough positive things about them, especially Marvel and the 2 truck 6 man crew that came out and helped me last night.From the time I spoke with Lauren to get my quote, it went well. she listened to all of my concerns, was very detail oriented as we walked through every item to get an accurate quote. She suggested the right equipment and crews. I was going to go cheap, but I'm glad I listened to her. It was more than worth it.The men showed up on time as they were scheduled to and they just didn't stop. For 12 hours. They were all in good humor considering what a terrible time moving day is.We have a lot of glass and this one dude - I didn't catch his name- wrapped it all more carefully that I would have my own belongings. Astounding!Hire them. And when you do, make sure you have those fellas some nice water, protein bars and buy them a decent lunch. They are busting it for you and they deserve that much.

These guys were amazing!! They shrink wrapped the furniture that was delicate like my glass kitchen table. They brought a huge couch in set it up along with the new area rug. We moved from a small 650 square foot apartment to a 2000 square foot townhome. These guys put all the boxes and things where I asked them to on each level. They really went above and beyond! I've used several moving services in the past and by far this moving service has been the best. I had three movers and they took 4 hrs to do all the moving. There was a half an hour travel time added on but I think that is not much considering they spent more than a half an hour in traffic!Just wanted to put this review out there to let people know you will not be disappointed if you use boston best rate movers. The guys I had were superb! They treated all my belongings as if they were theirs, so no damage at all. I'll definitely call and ask for them when it's time to move again - they were efficient, knowledgeable, and respectful!

The only fun part of moving is the new house part!That being said, from beginning to end, my experience with Boston Best Rate Moving was as easy as can be. I had many questions prior to reserving and up until moving day; The team at Boston best Rate were incredibly responsive and detailed in their answers.On the day of, the crew called to let me know that they were on their way. Max and his crew worked hard to get us and our belongings into our new home. I knew that they offered boxes for the day of the move, but I didn't realize that they would put all the clothes into the boxes for us! Also, they helped my wife put her treadmill back together, as it wouldn't fit through the hallway in one piece. They even took some of our empty boxes with them, as there's NEVER enough space in the recycle bin for all that cardboard!When they were done, they had us go into the moving truck to see that everything was in fact removed. The day after our move, we received a follow up email to make sure that everything was ok. The mover’s were professional, fast and you can not beat the price. I highly recommend Boston Best Rate to anyone who knows how stressful moving can be.Great experience!!
