The State of the Moving Industry in 2023

This entry was posted in Company News on by .

The moving industry is a large and complex industry that is constantly evolving. In recent years, the industry has seen a number of changes, including the rise of online moving companies, the increasing popularity of DIY moving, and the growing demand for sustainable moving services.

The Rise of Online Moving Companies

One of the most significant changes in the moving industry in recent years has been the rise of online moving companies. These companies offer a variety of services, including packing, loading, and unloading, and they often charge lower prices than traditional moving companies.

The popularity of online moving companies is due to a number of factors, including the convenience of booking a move online, the transparency of pricing, and the ability to compare quotes from multiple companies.

The Increasing Popularity of DIY Moving

Another major trend in the moving industry is the increasing popularity of DIY moving. This trend is being driven by a number of factors, including the rising cost of professional moving services, the availability of affordable moving supplies, and the growing number of DIY moving guides and tutorials available online.

While DIY moving can save you money, it is important to weigh the risks and benefits before making a decision. DIY moving can be time-consuming and physically demanding, and it is important to make sure that you have the necessary skills and experience to complete the move safely.

The Growing Demand for Sustainable Moving Services

The moving industry is also facing increasing pressure to adopt more sustainable practices. This is due to the growing awareness of the environmental impact of moving, as well as the increasing demand for sustainable products and services from consumers.

A number of moving companies are now offering sustainable moving services, such as using recycled packing materials, packing your belongings in reusable boxes, and donating or recycling unwanted items.

The moving industry is a dynamic industry that is constantly evolving. The trends discussed above are just a few of the changes that are shaping the industry in 2023. As the industry continues to evolve, it is important for consumers to be aware of the latest trends and to choose a moving company that meets their needs.

Piece By Piece Moving and Storage acquires Mercury Moving and Storage Systems

This entry was posted in Company News on by .

Formally based in Avon, Scituate, and Ashland, Mercury Moving and Storage Systems has been providing memorable service to clients in the south and western Boston suburbs since 1997. A family owned business, over the past two decades Mercury earned a well-deserved reputation for attention to detail, consistency, and personalized service.

It became evident, as expected, the Mercury crew members were indeed hard working and proud of the company they built. Our concerns about culture fit were quickly assuaged as we began integrating the crews. The merger was realized in April of 2016, so we have over a year of servicing Mercury clients under our belts. The Mercury brand gives us a presence and greater familiarity with the south shore suburbs as we continue to earn business in areas where we had very little name recognition prior to the acquisition.

On a personal note, we have great respect for the former owners of Mercury Moving Systems. Wonderful people whose primary concern was pleasing clients for close to 20 years. We hope to keep the Mercury brand and reputation intact well into the future. Mercury Movers cleverly refers to the planet Mercury, which is the “fastest moving” planet in our solar-system. The Piece By Piece/ Mercury Moving and Storage team now share in the pursuit of being the fastest, most efficient, and safest movers around!

How to Save Money While Moving – Furniture Addition

If you are moving to a smaller home, you are probably thinking about downsizing, and getting rid of some furniture that you think may not fit.Fitzgerald 145

But before you give away your furniture, we advise you to hold off on that until you have officially moved into your new place! The last thing anyone wants to do is to get to their new home, and realize that some of the furniture they gave away or sold could have been used.

Now, since you sold or gave away your old furniture, you have to go out and buy new furniture at a price that is probably double what you sold your old furniture for!

Those who have bought new furniture, know it isn’t cheap. So, wait until you are all moved into your new place to sell any furniture; once you’re all unpacked and everything is in place, you can sell some of that surplus and unneeded furniture!
