This is a thread mentioning many companies that do local moves in the Boston area - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4586
Among those mentioned favorably there are Nick's, Carroll the Mover, BTI-Mayflower, Paul Taylor (Wakefield), Benny's (use with caution, and not for long-distance), and Paul Young (Walpole). On another thread, East Coast Mover (a driver whose opinion I trust) also recommended Carroll the Mover (Quincy) - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5126.
Gentle Giant has also been mentioned favorably on other threads.
My opinion:- not doing an in-home estimate is risky for both the customer and the company involved. I think it is sometimes OK for a studio or 1BR apartment move in a city like New York, but that's as far as I will go. A moverpro whose opinion I respect ("blue") once posted that it's the ones that you don't see that come back to bite you (the moving company)--I think he might have been quoting something his father said.
They charged 140.00 per hour for 3 men and ?30 ft. truck (I think). They wrapped all of the furniture with blankets and shrunk wrapped the couches and chairs at no extra charge.
They did have a 6 hour minimum, but it was heavy moving season, and they came to about the same hourly estimate as the others did anyway.
Overall, great move.
