Boston: know where I could get a cargo trailer to use for a few days?

Anyone know where I could borrow/rent one?

I'm moving November 1 and looking to transport some things a couple days before and a couple days after. We do have a truck for the day of the 1st, but only wanted to keep it for the big stuff like couch, desk etc.

Moving in Somerville. If you think you could help, or know someone, please let me know --
Thanks!

Dont have an answer, but you might have more luck if you post in the Mass/New England sub forum. All the best with the move! I just moved myself from Cambridge to Chelsea

some local resources

I know a friend in Somerville recently did an all-bike move, couches and all.

There are a few people in Somerville and Cambridge with good and big BAW cargo trailers. If you haven't already, I'd try contacting green streets and livable streets. I'm sure that would get you in touch with a few folks--they're all good people.

I've got an old Burley kid trailer, but I think it's too small to be much use for moving much of anything.

Good luck,

Jonathan
