Ashland Location

Based in Ashland, Massachusetts our small town has so much to offer. With major routes 135 and 126 passing through Ashland. Travel is easy, with our own stop on the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail Line and nearby access to both I-90 and I-495. Ashland is considered part of MetroWest, which also consists of the towns of Framingham, Holliston and Hopkinton. It is the "ideal" location; about halfway between the cities of Boston and Worcester. With Ashland’s downtown district being revitalized, we hope to see even more new businesses open. Also part of the route for the Boston Marathon, which began in Ashland on Pleasant Street until the start was moved to Hopkinton's Main Street in 1924.

We relocated our home and business to Ashland 11 years ago. We enjoy being part of the Ashland community and like the traditions of a small town. The local Farmers Market, Ashland Day, Dragon Fly Festival, and the new Corner Spot are just a few of the town’s fun social events.

In 2016, Ashland High school was ranked #51 among all of the high schools in Massachusetts and #1224 in national school rankings. Education is important to us as we have children in the Ashland Schools.

Ashland’s offers resources at the library or community center. Ashland’s State Park, Ashland’s town forest and the Warren woods are all great places to explore!

Ashland is known for its clocks! Inventor Henry E. Warren developed the Warren Synchronizing Timer in 1916, which made synchronous electric clocks possible by keeping alternating current flowing from power plants at a consistent sixty cycles per second. Warren founded Telechron, which, in partnership with General Electric, manufactured electric clocks in Ashland until 1979. A Warren Synchronizing Timer is on display at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History in Washington D.C. and the Ashland High School sports teams are coined "The Clockers."

 

Framingham Location

Santos Moving is located in Ashland, Massachusetts. But we have also served the Framingham community for 15 years. The voters of Framingham switched its governing structure from town to city in 2017. In 2000, Framingham celebrated its Tercentennial.

Framingham is known for the Framingham Heart Study, as well as for the Dennison Manufacturing Company, which was founded in 1844 as a jewelry and watch box manufacturing company by Aaron Lufkin Dennison, who became the pioneer of the American System of Watch Manufacturing at the nearby Waltham Watch Company. His brother Eliphalet Whorf Dennison developed the company into a sizable industrial complex, which merged in 1990 into Avery Dennison.
We continue to keep our trucks and equipment in Framingham at an offsite location. Framingham, Massachusetts is a great town with a great community of people, community sponsored events, an abundance of resources, a multitude of recreational parks and lakes for playing, boating, fishing or hiking, good schools and nice libraries. Framingham is also close to the major roadways of route 9, route 135, route 16, Mass Pike and The T. Framingham is actually one of the largest towns in New England at 68,000 residents strong. They have a large cultural landscape of people here. The Boston Marathon runs right through Framingham. I have very fond memories of watching the runners come down route 135. Living in the next town over in Ashland, I now get to enjoy seeing my kids watching the runners as they come through Ashland and enter Framingham.

Born and raised in Framingham, I have enjoyed seeing most of the changes of the town! I do miss the old Ebenezer’s Restaurant, Sampans & Friendly’s downtown Framingham! And what about the original Shoppers World Mall! That was so beautiful during the holiday season! Though the new Natick Mall or I should say The Natick Collection is very nice and upscale.

With our resources that we have in the Framingham and Ashland area and our knowledge of the local towns and streets, we will be able to provide even more excellent efficient service and quality work! We know the town of Framingham very well and continue to support the Ashland and Framingham community and local businesses any way we can.

Santos Moving appreciates all of our past customers and we hope you can be a customer of our future.
