Apartments Moving to Boston Unknown Boston

Moving to Boston Guide: An Introduction

You have had a chance to compare your options and have decided that the best way to grow your future career in publishing (or other fields) is to move to Boston, and you are ready to work out the logistics of moving to Boston.

I would like to share with you my complete beginner status and knowledge of moving from Fort Worth, Texas to Massachusets. After several mishaps with our tarps at the 3am  and an over 30-hour non-stop trip, we made it to Boston in one piece.

There is nothing easy about moving your life across the country, but it doesn’t mean you can go into it prepared. Over the next few articles, I’d like to help explain ways that you can move to Boston in a much better fashion than I did. If you’re moving from a different country or even somewhere within the U.S., your city could be completely different from how one of America’s oldest cities has adapted.

Over the course of this segment, I hope I can show you the answers to your questions and feel free to ask more! boston

Some of the topics I’ll cover are: 

  • What to look for in an apartment?
  • How do you get a place to live if you can’t visit the city?
  • How do you safely handle a lease so you don’t get stuck somewhere and can’t get out if it turns to crap!
  • What items should you bring and not!
  • How to adult: Expenses, utilities, rent, banking, etc.
  • Traveling in Boston and the craziness that ensues!
  • Renter’s Insurance?!
  • Moving to Boston is no small feat, and but you don’t have to be an expert to learn it. It just takes some research, planning, and effort to make your dreams come true.
  • And many more!

These are just a few of the topics I hope to touch on. I’m by no means an expert, but I am coming to be foolishly in love with the coolness in the air and the winding subway trains. So, if you found this article, skip ahead! Find the question your looking for or follow my newsletter to see when your question will get answered!

Please feel free to put your questions in the comments, and I can answer them in my weekly “Buxom Questions Answered” segments!

Until then,

Talk later Bookworms!
