Movers face unique challenges in the various villages of Newton, MA. Newton Upper Falls is up river from the village of Newton Lower Falls.
Newton Upper Falls used to be a Mill Town. In fact, years ago, about 25% of the population in Newton lived in Newton Upper Falls and it was a very busy business district. As a result, there is still a large commercial activity in Newton Upper Falls. Many of the mills have been converted into industrial and retail space. However, there was also quite a bit of housing built to house mill employees. So this area of Newton sees many different styles of homes.
There are a lot of Capes, duplexes and old style homes, but not necessarily the old Victorian style homes that you see in other parts of Newton. Therefore, there are a few more issues movers face when moving into and out of Newton Upper Falls. There is less space more lower overhangs, and tighter staircases. These challenges are very common in the Cape Style homes and the duplexes especially.
If you are moving a large piece into or out of one of these style homes, it is best to bring the moving company into the process as soon as possible. Oftentimes, we will see people moving into a Cape home wresting with furniture in the front entryway where there is limited space before the stairs start doing damage to the furniture and staircase.
When you deal with a moving company in Newton that has a lot of experience in moving in these homes there could be a better, more simple solution. The moving solutions can be decided on before move day.
