When you imagine the perfect move, select images may flash through your mind. Snapping a quick family picture in front of the “Sold” sign. Waving goodbye to the old house one last time. Opening the door to your new home and your new future. Sounds pretty great.
Reality might paint a different picture. Motivating yourself and your family members to pack. Finding the right packing materials. The actual packing. For days. Only to have to run out to get more materials. Without a doubt, packing is a tedious job. And, if you pack boxes incorrectly, you can even end up with damaged or broken items. What to do? Like anything, Google it! Search “professional packers near me” or “packing and moving companies near me.”
It sounds too good to be true. It will cost extra. But, movers packing for you will save you a whole lot of time and a whole lot of stress. Select moving companies do provide full packing (and unpacking) services. For an additional fee, you can hire a small team of professional packers to come to your home, move through each room from the attic to the basement, and pack up every single item that you own, down to the last pencil.
Professional movers have the experience and the supplies to get the job done right. Many packers have been working in the industry for years. Plus, packers will bring all of the necessary supplies right to you. Yes, they will supply the standard-sized sturdy boxes. But, they’ll also bring specialty boxes for electronics, wardrobe items, and glassware. And, they’ll supply all of the extras to secure your items for safe transport: packing tape, bubble wrap, and cardboard inserts for glassware boxes.
Take care of a few practical details before the packers arrive to make the process go more smoothly.
Your packing team will arrive, usually in a small group of 3-4 movers. They’ll put down protective coverings to protect your flooring from damage and natural elements. They’ll come equipped with all required and specialty supplies needed to do the job. Then comes the best part: they’ll methodically move through each room of your house, securely packing every item. We suggest staying at home to oversee the process and answer any questions.
