While it's not exactly heavy lifting, the biggest time-suck in a move is actually the process of packing the small stuff in boxes. If you're in a rush or just have a few items you want handled with special care, hiring professionals to pack your smaller items into boxes or reusable containers can be a great way to save time and ensure that your belongings are well-protected and ready for transit. Whether you choose to hire a crew to pack all of your items, or just a few, you'll find that with the hours you gain back, it's money well-spent.
How it works
If you’re doing your own packing, we recommend starting about a week out from your move. Pack stuff you won’t need during that last week to give yourself a head start. If you’re hiring professional packers, they’ll most likely be scheduled to arrive the day before your move. But don’t worry, they’re quick.
The cost for professional packing depends on how many, and which type(s) of boxes you'd like the moving company to pack. Packing prices on Moveline always include the cost of necessary boxes, packing materials, and labor.
