Transfer from Residential address to Logan Airport

I've had a quote from Flightline from a residential address to Logan airport $75. Does anyone know anyone cheaper? I believe taxi are unreliable!

Why do you believe taxis are unreliable? And I guess we need to understand what you mean by unreliable, too. As bmoruzzi, asked, we have no clue whether $75 is good or bad without knowing where it's from. From Downtown, it's over double of regular taxi fare.

Staying at Haverhill, I believe mbta.com train $12.25 each to some of the way then $20 taxi for the 10-15 min ride to airport is another option

I think that's probably a good price you were quoted. Haverhill is 45 min from Logan airport. I live about 20 minutes from Logan and a cab costs us $50 when we go. I think cabs are very reliable. When we go on trips I always call the night before to schedule the pick up and we've never not had them show up, or to even be late.

Now I changed my mind. If you got a firm quote for $75 from Haverhill, GRAB IT! That's much less than I would expect the fare to be. (My gut is that it's a mistake, but I hope for your sake it's real).

Haverhill is nowhere near the airport. I'd expect it to be higher.

They're not very cheap but still reliable.

It is $12.25 paying on the train, but $9.25 buying a ticket in advance. You would still have to take the MBTA train to the airport once you arrive at North Station...a limo ride would cost over $100 not including tip, so $75 is a good deal from Haverhill.
