Moving isn’t a cheap undertaking, so it’s understandable that people want to cut costs whenever possible.
Take packing services, for example. Are they worth the money?
We’d like to give you a definitive yes or no answer, but it truly depends on your individual set of circumstances.
But make no mistake: Packing services do offer several big advantages.
First, they save you time and effort. Anyone who’s moved knows that packing can be a full-time job. Leaving a time-intensive (and back-straining) task to the professionals is a real plus.
Also, packing isn’t as easy as it looks, especially when large or breakable items are involved. Anybody can pack up their books or throw pillows.
But say you have a large mirror you’d like transported. After realizing you don’t have a big enough box, you may throw a blanket over it, wedge it in the back of the truck—and hope for the best before winding up disappointed.
That said, not everybody needs a packing service. If you’re well-versed in how to safely pack breakable possessions (and have the right boxes and padding), you may not need it. Ditto if you don’t have many precious items—or if you simply don’t have that much stuff to pack.
If you do elect to use a packing service, you’ll have to decide if you want the movers to pack everything in your home or just the things you can’t do yourself.
We understand that every move is different which is why Dircks Moving and Logistics is a full service moving company. Whether you need us to do the packing or not we ensure that all your items get to your new home safely.
