“The interpersonal situation in the apartment had become very tense, and I was spending as little time in the apartment as humanly possible,” Joshua said. “Obviously I needed to move, and in the quickest, easiest way possible.”
Sound familiar? Room mate difficulties, breakups, and other situations that require a rapid change of address can be very stressful. Your secret weapon for smooth sailing through tense times? Pack and move companies, who can do all of the work for you.
Here’s how this works. You’re familiar with moving companies, who show up at your home to take your furniture and possessions away in a large truck to bring it to your new place. Pack and move companies provide an additional layer of service in that they actually come to your house and pack your stuff in moving boxes for you. They also prepare your furniture for moving, such as disassembling bedframes and similar tasks.
The advantage of using pack and ship movers is that you don’t need to do all of this work yourself. In tense situations where you’re keeping your time on site to a minimum, having a team of professionals on hand can ensure the job gets done quickly. Because pack and ship movers do this job all of the time, they can pack a household in a fraction of the time it takes the typical person to do it.
“Personally, I found it really made the dynamic in the apartment a lot easier to deal with,” Joshua said. “Whatever my room mates felt like, it didn’t involve the moving company, who came in, got the job done, and left. Once my stuff was out, I didn’t need to be there either, and life instantly became less stressful.”
Joshua’s situation was what could be characterized as a small move: he had a few pieces of furniture and his personal possessions. However, pack and move companies serve households of all sizes. They’re a favorite option of busy professionals who move frequently for their careers, as well as people who have mobility challenges that make physically packing up the household an overwhelming task.
Another advantage of using pack and move companies is that their expertise in packing household items results in less breakage and damage to your possessions.
