While most households instinctively call a moving company to transport their furniture, clothing, and housewares during relocation, many people are unaware of the time, expense, and stress they may be able to save by hiring a professional to pack their belongings prior to the move. Rolanda L. offers specialized packing before moving and unpacking upon arrival at the new location.
How a Packing Session Works
Planning ahead greatly enhances the likelihood of achieving a smooth, low-stress move. Generally, my first step is to take a look at the client’s home and the items that will need to be packed. If requested, I provide guidance and recommendations for packing supplies and moving box sizes and quantities in advance of the actual packing session. After assessing the client’s desired timeline and goals, the packing can begin.
Rolanda L. vs. The Moving Company
Several moving companies also offer packing service. While it may be tempting to allow the transportation company to also handle packing, there are a few things clients should consider before making a decision with their dollars. First, moving companies generally specialize in loading, unloading, and transporting boxes and large items. Smaller, more delicate wares will likely require handling with a more delicate touch. This is especially true of high value artwork and heirlooms. When moving a very unique, expensive item, such as a high-end piano, I typically suggest contacting a separate service provider who specializes in securing and moving the particular item in question. In addition to requiring more attention to detail, the task of packing requires organization. Oftentimes, boxes that have been packed by moving companies are mislabeled, or they may contain items that should not necessarily be packed together. However, Rolanda L. is able to strategically pack and label housewares and clothing, not only to minimize damage, but also to make unpacking and getting settled a virtual walk in the park.
Save Time and Energy
Most people have work and family responsibilities. Finding time to pack for an upcoming move may seem virtually impossible. Enlisting the help of a professional can reduce the amount of disruption moving inevitably has on a person’s daily routine. Parents are able to be more attentive to their family’s needs, and busy professionals are better able to keep up with work responsibilities.
