Dedham Moving Company

Settled in 1635 by people from Roxbury and Watertown, Dedham was incorporated in 1636. It became the county seat of Norfolk County when the county was formed from parts of Suffolk County on March 26, 1793. When the Town was originally incorporated, the residents wanted to name it “Contentment.” The Massachusetts General Court overruled them and named the town after Dedham, Essex in England, where some of the original inhabitants were born. The boundaries of the town at the time stretched to the Rhode Island border.

At the first public meeting on August 15, 1636, eighteen men signed the town covenant. They swore that they would “in the fear and reverence of our Almighty God, mutually and severally promise amongst ourselves and each to profess and practice one truth according to that most perfect rule, the foundation whereof is ever lasting love.”

Dedham is home to the Fairbanks House, the oldest surviving timber-frame house in the United States, scientifically dated to 1637. On January 1, 1643, by unanimous vote, Dedham authorized the first taxpayer-funded public school, “the seed of American education.” Its first schoolmaster, Rev. Ralph Wheelock, a Clare College graduate, was paid 20 pounds annually to instruct the youth of the community. Descendants of these students would become presidents of Dartmouth College, Yale University and Harvard University.

The first man-made canal in North America, Mother Brook, was created in Dedham in 1639. It linked the Charles River to the Neponset River. Although both are slow-moving rivers, they are at different elevations. The difference in elevation made the canal’s current swift enough to power several local mills.

In 1818, though citizens were still taxed for the support of ministers and other “public teachers of religion,” Dedham set a precedent toward the separation of church and state. Residents of the town selected a minister different than that chosen by the church members; the selection by residents was confirmed by the Supreme Judicial Court. This decision increased support for the disestablishment of the Congregational churches.

The local Endicott Estate burned to the ground in 1904 after the local volunteer fire department, responding to three separate fires burning simultaneously, reached the Endicott fire last. By the time they arrived, only ashes remained. It is said that the estate’s owner, Henry Bradford Endicott (also founder of the Endicott Johnson Corporation) took the burning of the homestead as a divine command to rebuild (which he did). The rebuilt Endicott Estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The estate and surrounding grounds are open to the public, upholding Henry’s stepdaughter Katherine’s wish to use the house and property for “educational, civic, social and recreational purposes.”

In 1921, the historic Sacco and Vanzetti trial was held in the Norfolk County Courthouse in Dedham. Dedham Pottery is a cherished class of antiques, characterized by a distinctive crackle glaze, blue-and-white color scheme, and a frequent motif of rabbits and other animals. Dedham is sometimes called the “mother of towns” because 14 present-day communities were included within its original broad borders.

Local South Carolina Moves

{{basicsettings.company_name}} carries a limited moving license for the Boston. The license allows moves to be performed in Boston If the move originates in Boston and crosses state lines, the move is then categorized as an interstate move and regulated by the Justice Department. Therefore, any move originating in other counties of Boston and crossing state lines, can be performed without restrictions.

How local moves are charged:

Move time starts once movers arrive at your origin address and ends when movers finish unloading at the destination address.

{{basicsettings.company_name}} Movers reserve the right:

  • To choose the number of movers needed for each job, depending on our current schedule, availability, weather conditions etc., while meeting the expectations of the customer.
  • To send additional men and/or truck, if we anticipate your job will require additional time or services.

**Additional charges will apply accordingly (check our pricing page). Please note, that additional movers will not significantly change your final bill, as the move itself proceeds more efficiently with additional movers.

Example (2 Bedroom Apartment with Living Room):

2 movers x 4-5 hrs. (@$90/hr.) = $360 – $450

3 movers x 3-3.5 hrs. (@135/hr.) = $405-$472

4 movers x 2.25-2.75 hrs. (@$180/hr.) = 405-$495

The confirmation email will also provide you with important information regarding your move and {{basicsettings.company_name}} policies. Our main purpose is providing you with exceptional customer service. Providing you with as many options as you need and forming the best plan for success on your move day.

What does your move start time mean?

If you have scheduled a morning appointment for 9am or 10am then your moving crew should arrive at the scheduled time (sometimes they are a few minutes early or late depending on weather or traffic). You will receive a phone call from your Crew Leader once they are 15 minutes from your origin location.

The most common reason for additional time to estimated hours is, incomplete information provided by a customer.

Your confirmation email asks you double check your inventory list and let us know if there are any changes, 3 days prior to your move. We also need to know if any item(s) require significant disassembly, fitness equipment, executive desks, entertainment centers, etc.

If {{basicsettings.company_name}} movers arrive to a move and find they are now being asked to move 4 extra pieces of furniture and 15 additional boxes, this will not only add to the time needed, but can also add to the number of trucks needed for a move. If a wall unit has dozens of pieces of hardware and requires 40 minutes of disassembly, the movers will fall behind schedule. Every extra item or service takes time, and while we are happy to assist you with whatever you need, we do ask that you provide us with that information beforehand, so we can provide you with the service you deserve.

PAYMENT METHODS

For local moves, you must pay in full at completion of your job. Unless otherwise arranged, payment for labor only, local and long distance moves is due in full at the end of the job by cash or check. We accept Credit Card Payments (VISA/MC/DISCOVER/AMEX) for any move less than $2,500.
