5 Reasons to Hire Professional Packers

Friendly moving tech with boxes

Moving to a new home is a major undertaking, and anything that eases some of your stress is a big help. Hiring a team of professional packers can be an easy way to ensure your belongings are safe and protected while also saving you a huge amount of time, stress, and hassle.

The following are several reasons why hiring professional packers for your move might be right for you:

1. They Have Professional-Grade Materials and Equipment

Professional moving companies have access to higher quality packing materials that you would have from cobbling together boxes from recent deliveries and duct tape you have in the garage, or even from going to a local store to purchase brand-new boxes. Professional-grade materials and equipment such as specialized dollies, bubble wrap, ratchet straps, heavy-duty tape, Styrofoam and bubble wrap, blankets, etc. are better overall for protecting your items during the moving process.

2. You Can Feel Confident in the Safety of Your Fragile Belongings

Professional packers and movers have extensive experience in packing, and that includes fragile or specialty items. Items such as antiques, artwork, mirrors, instruments, and large furniture have to be handled and packed appropriately. A professional company will ensure that they’re packed and transported to your final destination safely.

3. It Saves Your Valuable Time During the Moving Process

The moving process is always hectic, and odds are you’ll be busier than you expect in the days and weeks leading up to moving day. Last-minute things always come up. Working with professional packers will free you up to focus on other things or take a deep breath and be present with your family throughout the moving process. What’s more, a job that would take you a week is done by a professional team in a few hours, meaning you’re free to get on your way sooner.

4. You Can Actually Save Money Compared to Doing It Yourself

The perceived cost may be a barrier to some individuals, but hiring a professional packing crew can actually be more cost-effective in the long run, especially since most movers charge by the hour and can finish packing jobs incredibly efficiently. When you work with a professional packing company, you won’t have to pay for materials and won’t have to pay for any pizza to bribe neighbors to come over and help. What’s more, if anything is broken or damaged in the process, moving companies are fully insured so you won’t have to pay to replace those items out of pocket.

5. You’ll Avoid Stress and the Risk of Injury
Packing and moving are hard physical labor. If you’re not used to that type of work you run the risk of seriously injuring yourself through back or other muscle strain. Save yourself the mental and physical strain of packing up your belongings for a move to a new home by leaving it to the pros.
