Why Ask Movers to Pack for You?

Packing up your home or business takes time and a lot of effort. Not everyone has the time to dedicate to carefully packing up each room, ensuring their fragile items are safe, labelling boxes and creating an inventory. For a moving company, however, their team will pack your house up in a jiffy. And moving companies that are reputable always have well-trained staff who are efficient and professional.

Movers know the best ways to pack your precious belongings by wrapping them up, protecting them, and boxing them. Keeping your belongings safe is what they are trained to do, and they are good at it. By carefully packing your belongings, they minimise the chance of breakage and damage. They use the best packing materials and tricks-of-the-trade to get your things to their new destination while mitigating any potential risk.

They should also create a detailed record of inventory as they pack, making it easier to know what is inside each carton, and to track your belongings throughout the move. This is especially useful with long-distance or international moves.

When movers pack for you, you can insure all your belongings against any potential damage. This isn’t an option when you pack your own belongings because the company cannot determine that you have followed best practices and used quality packing materials to minimise the risk of damage.

What to Ask Before You Commit

Packing your own belongings ahead of your move seems like the cheaper option, but if you use a reputable moving and packing company, your belongings are at less risk of damage; they can be insured; and you save your own precious time, which is likely better spent elsewhere. You do however need to make sure that before you commit, you ask moving companies these questions:

  • How long will they take to pack up your home?
  • What packing materials do they use?
  • What will they charge to pack up your home?
  • Will your belongings be insured?
  • How long in advance do you need to book your move?
  • What items are they unable to pack and transport?
  • Do they supply their own packing materials?
  • Do they custom wrap oddly shaped or specialised items?
