The vast majority of homeowners nowadays will hire a removal company to assist them when they’re moving house and it is fair to say that having a team of professionals on hand to help really can make things much easier. Lots of removal companies even offer packing services as well these days and it is becoming much more common for people to consider getting some help with this part of the moving process too.
Arranging for a team to pack your belongings will give you one less thing to worry about and it can make the weeks leading up to moving day much easier too, so it is no surprise that these services are getting much more popular. When you want to use a packing service, you will be able to choose between; a full packing service, a fragile pack, a non-fragile pack and an unpacking service too. So, to help you decide which service would be best for you, below is a list of helpful things to consider.
The size of your property
Often, the bigger a house is and the more ‘stuff’ people have to pack, the more likely they are to need a full packing service. Think about the number of rooms you have and how many boxes are likely to be needed for each room, remember to count the loft and garage too. If you think that packing yourself is too big of a task, then a comprehensive service is probably required.
How busy your pre-move schedule is
Many are surprised by how long packing can take and depending on how busy your schedule is before moving day, you might not have enough free time to pack everything yourself. Think realistically about how much packing you will be able to do before you get the keys to your new home, this will help you to figure out how much professional help you’re going to need.
Whether you have packing materials
It goes without saying that having high quality packing materials is essential when you’re moving home and when you’re thinking about packing services, remember to take into consideration the essentials that you still need. Lots of packing services actually include a supply of boxes, bubble-wrap and tape, so this might influence your decision in this regard.
The delicate items that you own
The delicate and fragile items that you own will play a role in the service that you choose. For example, if you have lots of sentimental items, you might want to pack these yourself and therefore a non-fragile pack would be more suitable. Also, think about how many breakables you own and how long these will take you to pack yourself, it might not be feasible for you to do.
How quickly things need to be unpacked
Lots of people don’t realise that unpacking services are available and even if you don’t get help packing your items, you can still have some help in your new home if you’d like. Think about how quickly you need to get all of your boxes unpacked and have everything straight in your new home, this will help you to decide whether you need this type of packing service.
Your budget for your house move
Of course, budget is always important to take into consideration whenever you’re deciding between services for a house move. It is worthwhile getting a quote for each type of packing service available and thinking about which you’re able to afford/happy to pay out for. You may find that some companies can give you a ‘price per box’ if required as well.
Arranging a removals packing service
There really is no denying that hiring professional packers is incredibly beneficial and it is easy to see why so many people choose to do so nowadays.
