“This is the first household move I am managing on my own,” Jeannie said. “The timing could have been somewhat better – my husband is currently working in Japan and I’m six months pregnant with a three year old and a five year old. So my question is what are the benefits of having the movers pack our things? Is it worth the extra money to pay for this service?”
Professional Movers Excel At Packing Household Goods for Safe Transport
Whether you’re moving across the street or across the country, your household goods, personal possessions, and fragile electronics need to be carefully packed for transportation. If your items aren’t packed properly, the risk that they’ll be damaged in transit becomes very high. One of the advantages of having the movers pack your things is that all of your possessions will be packed according to industry best practices. This means, for example, that your glassware and other fragile items will make it from your old address to your new address without being broken.
And it’s not just glassware. In this day and age, many families have a lot electronic items that are expensive. Packing a large screen TV for a cross-country move is trickier than you might think. When the movers pack your things, they have all the boxes, crates, packing material, tape, and other supplies as needed. This saves you from having to go all over the place gathering up these necessary materials for a move.
Professional Movers Do the Heavy Lifting for You
Packing and moving household possessions is intense physical labor. It is a demanding job that stresses the body and the mind. There are times in life when intense physical labor that adds additional stress to your day is not what you need. If you have health concerns, if you’re pregnant, if you’re not a person who does well with lots of physical activity, or you have too many other things going on right now, having the pack and ship movers handle your things makes a lot of sense.
