Moving Towards Storage

I have always been one of those people who is concerned about keeping their house as clean as possible, which is probably one of the reasons I started thinking more seriously about using professional storage. I didn't want to have to worry about tripping over things that I didn't use on a daily basis, so I began focusing on making things right. Within a few short months, I was able to rent a storage unit, pack things up, and move them out of my house, and it made a huge difference. This blog is all about moving towards renting a storage unit and sorting things out.

What To Expect When Hiring A Packing Service


Moving is a lot of work, even if you're just moving a few streets away from your old home. You'll need to make sure that you're fully prepared before your moving day arrives. If you're looking to make your life a little bit easier, you may be thinking of hiring a packing service to help you pack up your belongings. Many people put off packing and end up doing it the day before the move, and they often don't do a great job. Hiring a packing service can ensure that your items are packed well and ready to go. Here's what to expect when hiring a packing service.

They Will Bring the Packing Supplies to You

When you use packing services, you get more than just the convenience of expertly packed up boxes for your move. They also bring all of the packing materials and supplies that are needed to handle your job. So, don't rush out and get supplies because they will take care of that.

Your Items Will Be Packed Well

The main advantage of using a packing service besides saving time is that they will do an amazing job. You can feel confident knowing that your items will be carefully packed up so that they don't get damaged during the move. They do a much better job than you because they pack up boxes every day.

It Can Be Done in a Day or Two

You may be wondering what to expect for the timeframe. It really varies on the size of your home and how much there is to pack, as well as on how many professional packers will be there to do the work. You may be surprised to know that professional packers can do the job within a day or two. For example, a small, two-bedroom home might only take a half-day to pack up if there are several workers there.

Unplug and Get Ready

You can help your packing service and moving company by prepping your home. Unplug appliances and start to disassemble some items. Be sure to also take photos and other items off the walls so that you're ready to go. 

Make Note of What You Will Pack

If you have an area of the home that you want to pack yourself, make that clear early on. You should also set aside a couple of pairs of clothes for everyone and toiletries so that they don't get packed up on packing day.

Using a packing service or full-service moving company is your best bet if you want an easy, stress-free moving experience. You'll be so glad that you hired help!
