Packing is one of the most tedious aspects of a move, especially if you are short on time or simply own a lot of items. In many cases it can make more sense to bring in professional packers. Not only can they save you the precious asset of time, they can also make sure your fragile items are well cared for. If you are ready to invest in a full packing service, consider hiring them for a few specific tasks. The following list names a few places where a little help can go a long way.
The kitchen is often one of the most time consuming rooms to pack. A good portion of the items need to be carefully wrapped and guarded against breakage, while the rest seem to have awkward shapes that make them difficult to box. A packing service can make short work of your priced porcelain dishware while also fitting your odd-sized pots and pans into a box without wasting space.
If you have any type of collection that requires special packing to keep it safe, whether it's collectible figurines or a collection of toys, consider a packing service instead of trying to safely package up everything yourself. Many services specialize in fragile items, which means they have the knowledge and the right type of materials to prevent damage to your beloved collectible items.
For many people the tangle of wires behind the television, home entertainment center, stereo, or computer is confusing at best. Packing this up can be hard, while trying to remember how everything is supposed to connect can later be a nightmare. Packing services are not only skilled at diagramming and coiling up each individual wire, they can also unpack and set the devices back up in many cases. This can save you a lot of time and headaches.
Garages and shops have many issues when it comes to packing. There is the usual problem with odd-shaped items and equipment along with the fact that many items can't be moved by a moving company – or even across state lines. Packers can make sure everything is packed appropriately, regardless of size, while also confidently identifying and setting aside anything that falls onto the do not move list. Some packers even prep things for moving, such as draining fuel from lawnmowers.
