Are there Advantages of Professional Packing Services?

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group  

Are you intending to move soon? If that's so, you could be beginning to feel overloaded with all you have to do. One of the primary tasks associated with moving is packing and after that unpacking your items. Below are a few inquiries you could have in regards to the packing services offered by professional movers, in addition to how we might help take the anxiety out of packing and moving.

What are the Advantages of Utilizing a Professional Packing Service?

High-quality packing materials

One of the primary reasons a lot of people prefer a professional moving company to carry out their packing is because the packing staff uses appropriate packing materials. Consider how bubble wrap and other heavy-duty packing paper provide much better protection than making use of bathroom towels, blankets, and clothes for wrapping your fragile items.

Better productivity

In addition to utilizing quality packing materials, professional movers are usually very competent and take their job seriously. These pros are not only well trained, but they're also knowledgeable packing gurus which understand how to adequately wrap, pack and load all of the things correctly onto and off of a moving truck.


Sadly, when folks use friends and family in order to pack and/or move, there is the potential for someone getting hurt. However, there is no need to worry when you utilize a professional moving company to pack and move your items. This is much more vital if you reside in a multi-level house because it is easy for mishaps to occur if lugging large things down a staircase.


Just think about all the time associated with needing to locate your own boxes. What is more, you'll need to devote a few days, or maybe weeks, packing your things. However when you make use of a professional mover, this job can usually be accomplished in just a day or two.

What are the Levels of Packing Services?

Commonly, people don't realize that there are various levels of packing services provided by professional movers.

Such as:

Fragile-only packing-This covers only the trickiest belongings, including packing electronic devices, fragile glassware and china, antiques and other hard-to-pack goods.

Partial packing-If you don't need help packing things in each room of your house, then partial packing could be the best choice. This is often an optimal method for saving money since you will be performing some of the packing yourself.

Full-service packing-Just as its name suggests, full-service packing is when the moving company packs up every item in your house. Although, this is the most expensive solution, it can be done much faster, and you don't need to do any of the packing.

What is Entailed in the Packing Process?

· Just before the packing begins, the professional mover protects the flooring surfaces.

· Next, after bringing in boxes, tape, paper and also other packing materials, each packer takes a space and commences packing.

· Besides marking the different items which are inside each box, packers additionally tag the box with the particular room for the item.

How will I Know if I Need Aid with Packing?

More than likely, you could be asking yourself if you need help with packing. Take into consideration that there are various aspects that may go into addressing this inquiry. In addition to your budget, additional parameters may include those, such as:

· A shortage of time-Generally, people require assistance with packing should they be made to move on short notice. Therefore, if you have to move rapidly, then working with professional movers to pack and safely move your things can be your best solution.

· Too many things-Having a great number of things to pack is an additional factor.

Other Points to Remember

· It is best to be present throughout the packing.

· Keep children as well as pets away anytime packers are there. You do not want to slow down the action by having the packers be distracted or even cause a safety hazard. Consider how little pieces and loose parts lying around may be unsafe for kids and domestic pets.

· There are usually items that a moving company will not move, which includes live flowers and plants, hazardous products, and perishables. Make certain and go over these things with your mover in advance.
