Is a Packing Service Worth the Money?
Most reputable movers offer professional packing services, and hiring one can provide you with many benefits. When deciding whether to add more to your moving budget to include packing services, consider the following advantages:
- Speed and Efficiency: A good packing service can pack up an entire house in just a few hours. Doing it yourself can cost untold hours of time you can be spending on other essential tasks. When you pack yourself, you can be caught between two tasks: Getting rid of stuff and getting the rest packed. When you try to do both at the same time, you accomplish neither.
- Proper Packing: Professional packers are well-trained and experienced. They know which materials to use and how to secure your belongings best — this is especially true if you have fragile or high-value items.
- No Damage: This is one of the best benefits of using a packing service. Proper packing eliminates or dramatically reduces the possibility of damage to your belongings.
- No disassembly: When you choose a professional packer, they will disassemble all your furniture, so you don’t have to. The packers will also ensure that all the hardware is firmly attached and easily located for reassembly.
- Convenience: You can live in your home without disruption up to a day, or just a few days before you move.
- Liability coverage: Simply put, you’re liable for anything that breaks or gets damaged when you do it yourself. When your movers pack your boxes, they usually accept the liability for damages.
- Less Stress: You cannot put a price on peace of mind. You’ll be amazed at how much smoother your move will go when you allow someone else to handle the packing.
When considering the added cost of using a packing service, keep in mind that you will not be spending money on packing supplies, tools, and other necessary items. Therefore, along with the things mentioned above, this should be factored into your calculations.
