House Packing Services
Truth is that packing up a house is a major logistical project – which most of us underestimate. We all start off by thinking ‘Just how hard it can be?’, but as time goes by and it seems that there’s no end to the number of boxes necessary just to pack up your kitchen, the cold light of reality dawns – you might just need a professional on the job.
Professional Packing Services Help Reduce Stress…
Packing is now a profession which is supported by a number of courses offered by the British Association of Removers (BAR). It’s taken UK movers a while to recognise the benefits of hiring a professional to pack up your home, but the service is now evolving to become a ‘must have’ as our busy lives accelerate.
Professional packers will:
- Work as a team to pack up your home fast, efficiently and securely.
- Provide high quality, durable packing materials to ensure that every item is professionally packed for safe transit.
- Employ professional packing techniques to ensure every item is packed to avoid breakage or damage.
- Label every box is clearly for ease of access when you arrive in your new home.
- Create a detailed inventory as part of the packing process.
… And It’s Cost Effective
Packing teams are trained have your home packed and ready for removal in hours rather than weeks, or months. They take a co-ordinated approach, working room by room. And it’s not just about the packing up; clearly labelled boxes include room locations for your new home, aiding the unloading and unpacking service at the other end.
Once people have used a professional packing service once, they tend to be lifetime converts, claiming that the reduction in time, stress and labour make packing services excellent value for money.
How Do Packing Services Work?
Every provider will offer a slightly different range of services, but the basic steps tend to remain the same:
Packing Audit – this is critical to effective operations. A packing co-ordinator will check out the number of rooms to be packed, including – if appropriate – the garden, loft, garage and cellar. They’ll also discuss bespoke packing processes for any non-standard items you may have.
De-Cluttering Advice – key to effective professional packing is the process of de-cluttering. Professional packers will often provide tips, advice and local community and council links to help movers get rid of unwanted items before moving day arrives.
Packing Services – on a designated day, your professional packing team will arrive with all the professional packing materials they will need. They will go from room to room packing, wrapping and labelling in preparation for loading.
Inventory – the packing team will co-ordinate to create a comprehensive inventory of everything that is loaded onto the removals vehicle.
A Bespoke Packing Service for Moving House
Professional packing is a service, which means that providers will be keen to tailor their services to your requirements. This is great for movers, who should think carefully about ways in which packers can take the strain for them:
- Providing specialist packing for art work, musical instruments, or valuable antiques.
- Dismantling flat pack furniture.
- Packing up a parts of the house you don’t want to tackle – such as the garage.
- Finishing up the stuff you haven’t had time to do.
