What is a packing service?
Packing can take days or weeks doing it by you; our crews can come in and pack up the entire home in a matter of a few hours. We can bring supplies with us or use supplies you already have. We can do as little or as much as you need. If you have already packed half of the house but are feeling the moving stress we can come in and finish what you started!
If you choose to have our crews bring supplies with us for packing we will bring way more with us than you will need. Don’t worry you will only get charged for what you use. For a price list on our packing supplies please click here.

Supplies we can provide
We have two different options we can provide to our customers. Old fashioned way of packing with cardboard boxes or with our new reusable plastic crates that our customers can rent for their move. Below are a few commonly asked questions but if you still have questions give us a call anytime!
There’s no way around it, packing takes a lot of care and time to be done right. So why not have our experts handle it for you? We offer full-service packing, crating, and unpacking services so you won’t have to go through the stress of doing it yourself.
How many hours of packing help do you need?
- 4 hours
- 6 hours
- 8 hours
- 10 hours
In general, you’ll need 4 hours of packing help for a studio, 6 hours for a 1-bedroom, 8 hours for a 2-bedroom and so on. However, that time can vary a great deal, depending on the packing materials and items that need protection.
PACKING FOR DIFFICULT OR FRAGILE ITEMS
If you don’t want comprehensive packing services, but still want an expert to help pack your most fragile and valuable items, we can do that, too. This option can help you save money while still giving you peace of mind that you’re most valued possessions will be safe and sound.
We can pack all of your mirrors and pictures using specially designed cartons and wrapping materials to provide maximum protection for your goods.
SPECIAL PACKING FOR SENSITIVE ELECTRONICS
Most electronic items can be easily damaged, which is why it’s often a good idea to have a professional handle this type of packing. Items that typically fall into this category include computers, tablets, speakers, gaming consoles, and televisions.
USING QUALITY PACKING MATERIALS
If you’re using our packing services, you can rest assured that our packers will use nothing but the best packing materials. However, if you decide to do your own packing, we strongly encourage you to use quality materials, which can be provided by us.
PRO-TIP: THE MOVING IN/OUT BOX
We suggest you choose one box in particular as your in/out box. It’s the last box you’ll pack, and the first one you’ll open when you arrive at your new home. This is important, because this box should contain everything you need right up until the day you move, and the first things you’ll need once you arrive at your destination. Typical items for this box include:
- Tissues/paper towels
- Vacuum cleaner
- Non-aerosol cleaning supplies
- Plastic cups, plates, and utensils
