Had never hired a professional moving company before and did not know what to expect, especially with some unique aspects to the move. The movers ended up being very nice guys, very helpful and considerate. We underestimated how much we had to move (standard for every move) by a significant amount. Because of that even though the final price was obviously higher than the quote, it was a very reaso...

The team Kamaul sent me was truly amazing - they were so careful with my things, took care not to ding walls and had a wonderful attitude. Most importantly they respected my request to keep masks on all day: I was extremely comfortable with them. I have worked with a lot of moving companies and this group is a cut above the normal men you get sent. I am very particular and was amazed at the effici...

The staff and management at Rare in Braintree were awesome. We had a crazy move/storage situation. They handled it extremely well, were very flexible, and super helpful. Definitely use them again!!

Move went great. RARE Moving stepped in on one-day notice when prior moving arrangements fell through at the last minute. Velvet in the office was understanding of our situation, responsive and courteous; Brandon and Brooks (sp.?) were on time, careful, efficient and professional in every respect. The whole move was accomplished in less than two hours.

This was the best experience I’ve ever had with movers. If I ever have to move again, I will definitely use this company. First, they sent someone to my home to walk through to discuss the move with me and provide me with a more accurate quote. I really appreciated that time since we were able to talk through how my furniture would be cared for. I have many antique pieces and needed a company that...

These guys were early, meticulous, professional and enjoyable to chat with even. I highly recommend them! I’d certainly hire them for a full move as well.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They moved a new refrigerator from street level up very tight stair cases to a third floor, renovated attic. They had to take the doors off the fridge, and two hallway doors too.

The movers were friendly and professional, however they did not know how to properly disconnect my furniture. They kept telling me it was taking so long because many of the screws were stripped. What should have take 4-6 hours took 8 1/2 hours. Not necessary since I moved most to the boxes myself and had basic one bedroom to move. I was very disappointed on the price since I had them come over to ...

I called Rare to discuss a price for my move from MA to RI. Unlike other companies I had contacted, the owner, Kamaul, came to my house to give me an accurate price. On moving day, a hot Monday in July, Locksley and Sherrod arrived right on time. They wasted no time carefully wrapping my furniture, and carefully loading their truck from my first floor home. They were both approachable, and profess...

First I must disclose this is the 5th or 6th time I have used their services. Again everything went extremely smooth. I called about a week in advance of the move for a quote which was received within 24 hours. The price was right in the range I expected. Kamaul and Ciaran were extremely easy to work with again and made the process very easy. I even had to change the date of the move and add a sec...
