Here at My Moving Service we realize that every move is a little different. The necessary preparation times, working budgets and specific requirements are just a few of the main things which tend to fluctuate with each customer, and those aspects are likely to impact your decision about the suitable packing service for your move. If you are looking to have a well-planned and smooth transition then education is the key.
We at My Moving Service believe that fully informing you about your options is the best way to guide you through the process of planning a long distance move, and with that in mind we’ll expand below on the various packing options at your disposal. The benefits of these services and their requirement compatibility are explained here at length; if for any reason you are still not sure which packing service is most compatible with your move or the most beneficial for you, feel free to call in and one of our experienced consultants will be happy to offer assistance and further clarification.
This service is complimentary and automatically included within every moving quote we offer. With this basic service all non-upholstered and non-fragile items will be wrapped in moving quilts by our team, with heavy furniture pads, corner protection and tape applied appropriately (and generously) where needed. The remaining items, as well as the moving boxes, will be packed by the customer (referred to as PBO) and the perishable supplies needed for packing aforementioned items shall be obtained independently by the customer.
Ranging from $10 and up to 16% of your overall moving costs, this alternative includes all services mentioned above, along with accounting for additional protection (materials & labor) for specific items you’ve mentioned (for example: packing a TV & 2 mirrors) for those on a very fixed budget, or a comprehensive custom packing service which includes everything except for the moving boxes you were intending to pack yourself. This option will include packing for all fragile items (including customized crating), covering upholstery & shrink wrapping / bubble wrapping any furniture items before the blankets are applied, and any materials which can be helpful in protecting all items which would not fit into a standard moving box. The monetary addition for this service tends to account for a fraction of the value of the goods being transported, so it should definitely be viewed, rather than an expense, as being an investment in maintaining the quality and integrity of your items.
Ranging from $295 up to 22% of your overall cost, this option receives the most recommendations and praises as since it includes within it a noteworthy bonus- you don’t have to lift a finger. Forget about hunting for packing supplies, racking your brain as to where you put the original box for a TV you purchased ages ago, or hail-Mary-hoping your fine china doesn’t crack. With this packing service our team will provide all the materials and do all the work so that you can sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee on your couch, until it’s time to load that very couch onto the truck. We call this a luxury service because that is exactly what it is; our skilled crew will set sufficient time aside and arrive with a deliberate excess of materials to pack up your entire home; top to bottom, basement to attic, safely, quickly and professionally. While this service is labeled a luxury, it is often a necessity and comes highly recommended, specifically for the following circumstances: those suffering from injuries or inflammation due to repetitive motion, those moving items which are located remotely to their home & those with significant time constraints due to prior responsibilities (employment & career, child care, geriatric care, etc.). Regardless of which packing service you ultimately choose, you can be sure of this: our team will give you courteous, efficient and professional service which will remain within the restrictions of your budget and be suitable to your needs.
