The difference between moving from Boston to Albany, and moving from Boston to the farthest corners of the West Coast mostly comes down to time and mileage. The moving procedures that require precision and experience (furniture disassembly, loading & unloading) are the same regardless of the distance covered. Cratos is the top Boston to Albany moving company because we prioritize and perfect those foundational procedures.
At Cratos Moving we understand that quality furniture disassembly isn’t as simple as bringing the right tools. You have to match your customers with the right professional movers – movers who will take the time to ensure that their customers feel comfortable with the disassembly and loading plan.
We’ll carefully wrap all of your larger belongings in heavy moving blankets. The road can be cruel even on a trip as short as Boston to Albany. Moving blankets, while basic, are absolutely vital; no corners uncovered, no chances taken.
The vehicles and equipment we use are in great condition, which helps reduce risk, but it’s the professionalism and presence of our moving teams that really make a difference. Your move will be absolutely seamless because you’ve got the best in the business looking after your things.
You’re not just moving from Boston to Albany, you’re setting up a new life in a new home, and you’re depending on us to help you do it! We take that responsibility very seriously. When our team arrives in Albany they will take the utmost care during reassembly, and get you set up right.
GPS tracking may not seem important on a quick Boston to Albany move, but think of it like this: you arrive early and decide to grab a bite at The Albany Pump Station, just as dessert arrives you get a notification that the Cratos Team is pulling into town – check please!
Cost, Care & Convenience are the frameworks of our whole business model. Efficiency allows us to reduce costs without sacrificing quality of service. Mindful moving teams ensure a high level of customer care. And, our A-Z services are aimed at making not just moving, but the whole relocation process easier.
I’m a sophomore at Siena College. I went home over the summer to get all my stuff. My dad hired Cratos. They’d helped his company move offices earlier in the year. I wasn’t bringing that much, so they sent a small team. I think they were excited to have such an easy job! They did amazing work and made it super easy. Dealing with my mom was the hardest part. She was crying her eyes out! Apparently, my empty bedroom was too much.
Cratos Moving is the best in Boston. I’m a stickler for the details. If I don’t like what I’m seeing, I’m gonna butt-in about disassembly and the way things are being loaded on the truck. Maybe that makes me difficult, but it’s my stuff. I’ve used other moving companies in the past and they didn’t listen. They did it their way regardless. Cratos doesn’t do that. That means something.
The best part about Cratos was everything they did for me ahead of moving day. I was nervous about moving from Boston to Albany, and it must have shown, because during my initial consultation, Sharon started chatting to me about the area. She had family near Albany and visited on occasion. Her reassurances helped put things into perspective. I wasn’t moving halfway across the country, plus Cratos was going to take care of all the heavy lifting for me. I felt so much better, and we hadn’t even signed the contract!

What’s it going to cost to move from Boston, MA to Albany, NY?
Not much. Our base rate starts at just $700! The formula is as simple as it gets: mileage + the cubic footage of your belongings.
Mileage: There aren’t too many miles between Boston and Albany, which makes it one of the cheapest long-distance moving routes we offer. Gas is included in mileage, and so are any tolls along the way.
Cubic Footage: When you’re moving from Boston to Albany the temptation is to bring everything. It’s so close! We’ll declutter later! Don’t do that. Widdle it down to the things you need. It’ll make moving cheaper and settling in easier.
Do you have separate packing services?
We sure do. We’re a full-service Boston to Albany moving company! We’d be happy to send a professional moving team to help you get organized ahead of time. Just let us know that packing services are a consideration during the initial consultation.
Are there additional charges for homes with difficult layouts?
It’s our job to make it easy for you, not the other way around. We would never charge you for steep stairs or skinny doors; that’s all part of moving from place to place. Our teams have years of experience and the backing of a proven system, they’ll be just fine.
Would it be easier if I left my belongings inside cabinets and drawers?
You’d think so, but no. Even Boston to Albany moving has its fair share of challenges; there’s no need to add uneven weight and easy breakability to the mix. Box everything up, and we’ll make sure it gets there in perfect condition.
