With a professional moving company, you have the option of doing some or all of the packing yourself. You can choose between hiring a Full Packing service or Partial Packing service. It is strongly recommended, that you let a professional packing crew handle your fragile and more valuable items. Furniture and major appliances will be wrapped and padded by the moving company. Larger items like pool tables, grandfather clocks, chandeliers, glass table tops may need additional dis-assembly and crating services. Here are the major differences between the two packing options:
Partial packing is the best option for price-sensitive customers, looking for a money-saving option. The moving company’s professional packing crews will pack the breakable items. In which case, these items will be covered under the moving company’s default valuation policy. Owner packed cartons containing high-value items must be left open for our Drivers to inspect and seal. It’s important to note that if you packed these items on your own, the moving company is not held liable for damages or loss.
Full packing is the best option for corporate relocation and larger shipments. Full packing services are priced to pack everything in your home. During your in-home survey, your Moving Consultant will provide you with a moving estimate based on the size and number of items in your home. If you choose the full packing service but in turn choose to pack items yourself, please let your Moving Consultant know in advance. In turn, if you made the decision to pack yourself and you are not completely packed several days prior to loading, please contact your move coordinator right away so we schedule a pack team to help finish the job.
In all cases, the best way to save money on packing services is to de-clutter! Hold a yard sale or donate any unwanted items before Moving Day.
