If you want to move, you need to plan on some help. Packing companies offer highly trained and experienced packers and movers who can handle the best packing methods to get the most out of each box. They pack so that they can move the boxes onto the truck and transport them to your new location. They will then carry them into your new home and leave them for you to unpack after you arrive. When you hire Pasadena Movers, you have a choice to either have them pack for you or you do your own packing and they will simply move the boxes to your next location. If you hire a moving company to assist with packing, here are a few important things you need to know so you will feel better about outsourcing your packing needs.
What Packers Do
Packers are trained at perfecting the packing process. They know how to neatly pack everything tight enough that it won’t bounce around but loose enough that it won’t break if bounced. They know how much to pack in a box so that it can be lifted and carried to the truck. They also know how to pack and sort so that everything in the box has a destination to one room. To ensure that everyone is on the same page, hold a meeting with your movers to go over how you prefer everything to go.
Can I expect items to be damaged?
Again, packers know what they are supposed to do and how to pack something so there is no issues. Unfortunately, things can and do get broken from time to time and it’s just going to happen. However, it’s important to note that things are not broken as often when packed by professionals.
Do Movers Pack Fast?
Unlike the homeowners, packers don’t have the sentimental attachment that comes with each item. When you pick up something, you will most likely think of the memory behind it and this can delay your packing. If a mover comes in and packs, they can just concentrate on packing and placing things in the box like it needs to be.
Should I be there when the packing is in process?
You do need to be there when the packing is going on so you can make sure that the packers are not interrupted by kids or pets in the home or in case, they have questions regarding something that needs to be packed. They will also be able to know what needs to be packed and what they can leave behind with the house. If you are not there, they may pack everything up and you have to sort through it in your new home.
Who is In Charge of Knowing when the packing is done?
This is why you request a meeting from the beginning. You can go over with one or two packing professionals to determine what needs to go and what can stay. You can basically schedule a walk through in each room and they can write down what is supposed to go where and also any special notes or requests you may have.
