Moving to Gloucester

Located just 32 miles outside of Boston lies the picturesque city of Gloucester, MA. This nautical community is known for its scenic waterfront living, thriving fishing industry and a plethora of local artists, many of whom are drawn to the area by its natural beauty. With a history dating back to 1632, Gloucester is one of the longest-standing communities in New England, and well beloved by locals and visitors alike.

Have you been wondering, “Who are the best movers in Gloucester?” Mass Bay Movers moves more than 1,000 families per year and maintains a 98% customer satisfaction rate because of our deep commitment to excellent service. When you need help with your relocation, trust the professionals on our team for an effortless transition.

Gloucester is home to a total population of about 30,000 people. The city has a median age of 49 and tends to cater to established professionals, families and empty nesters. There’s also a large population of retirees in the community! The median income for households here is $65,348, and the median home price is $381,000. This makes Gloucester a decidedly affluent area, although the cost of living is still lower than that in Boston proper.

If you haven’t lived in New England before, you’ll need to be prepared for some serious winter weather. Like much of the coast, Gloucester receives multiple feet of snow each year and can endure blizzard conditions at times from intense Nor’Easter storms. That being said, as cold as the winters are here, the summers are the total opposite: warm, sunny and stunningly gorgeous. You’ll also love New England autumns when the region’s trees burst into color and you get that perfect breeze coming in from the coast.

Gloucester is a great option for families, with plenty of jobs and fantastic schools. The main industries serving the area are healthcare, manufacturing, and education, along with the local fishing industry in the harbor. Students attend schools in the Gloucester Public School System, which is a small but robust school district with a commitment to excellence in education and a low student-to-teacher ratio that allows for increased one-on-one attention for each child.

Did you think packing was just a necessary DIY project for your move? Nope! At Mass Bay Movers, we get that packing box after box is a daunting task, and can take longer than the rest of the moving process, combined.

For families who want to take their time finding the perfect home, or those who are downsizing, we make it easy to protect your belongings at our secure Gloucester storage facility. With 24/7 video monitoring, a climate controlled warehouse and a full staff on site, you can rest assured that your possessions are in good hands.
