Read about RARE's work with Universities and Schools.


Northeastern University needed to quickly reconfigure classrooms and dormitory lounge areas in multiple buildings when the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued their COVID-19 guidance for reopening. RARE was onsite within 48 hours to help Northeastern move and store thousands of the University’s classrooms desks and chairs.  Working multiple consecutive weekends, RARE completely decluttered the classrooms and lounge areas and provided storage for all excess furniture. The move was so successful that RARE was called upon to do additional work and is now on the University’s preferred vendor list.


Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy, a private middle school, needed to temporarily relocate two campuses during building renovations.  RARE disassembled, packed and moved all campus furniture and equipment and helped the school set up a temporary location. After the renovation was completed, RARE returned and reassembled all items to their original locations.  RARE also provided junk removal and cleaning services to ensure that students and employees were in a safe and clean environment.

“We have been using RARE Moving and Storage for the past 10 years due to their professional, friendly and capable service.  RARE Moving has done a variety of jobs including emptying school buildings, moving furniture and items between our school buildings, and smaller jobs within our building.  Each time the job has been completed on time and done right.  Management is always great to work with.  We highly recommend RARE Moving and Storage. “
