Is A Packing and Unpacking Service Worth It?

Moving is an exciting time with a ton of stuff to do. And bear in mind that packing is only half the job. Once you’re inside your new home you’re likely to be tired. So do you really want to start the huge task of unpacking?

With a packing and unpacking service you’ll be able to settle into your new home straight away. Meet the neighbors. Explore. Rest.

HOW LONG DOES PACKING AND UNPACKING TAKE?

It all depends how much you have to take. We recommend tossing or donating things you don’t want to prepare for your move. But our team makes short work of packing and unpacking and we can do it the day before moving day.

So is a packing service worth it? First let’s take a look at some very good reasons why you should use a packing and unpacking service.

YOU WON’T RISK INJURY

And there’s a LOT of opportunity for injury when packing and unpacking. Even if you’re fit and healthy. Heavy objects? Trips to and from the attic? Added to a house full of boxes where it’s normally clear, there’s a high risk of injury from strains to trips and falls.

Can you imagine a trip to the emergency room after an injury, with all the other things you have to do?

BACK PROBLEMS?

50% of all adults in work complain of back pain every year. Is this you, or someone you live with? If your back’s already sensitive, don’t risk straining it by spending time leaning over boxes or lifting. Just leave it to the pros.

DODGE THE DUST

Packing and unpacking is usually dusty work. When are you moving? Spring is a popular time, but it’s often the worst time of year for allergy sufferers. And if you have any respiratory condition such as asthma, bear in mind that all that dust can trigger an attack.

How long has your new home been unoccupied? If it’s been a while, it could be dusty. So we’ll wipe everything down for you before putting your belongings away. You’ll be good to go in your new home, with no stress.

DO YOU HAVE YOUNG KIDS AROUND?

Little kids don’t generally help much when you’re packing and unpacking. In fact, the whole job can take much longer than you’d ever expect with them in the house.

KEEP YOUR BREAKABLES INTACT

How do you pack large, fragile objects anyway? The professional movers and packers at Air1 Moving & Storage know.

Have art, or a piano? Then you need to choose a moving company that knows how to pack them and unpack them perfectly. It can be a false economy to pack yourself

YOU’LL SAVE SO MUCH TIME LEAVING IT TO US

You have so much to do already. Are you packing for the whole family? If so, packing and unpacking will be time consuming for you to do yourself.

Some people live in half-packed chaos for weeks before a move, trying not to pack what they’ll need. And doing annoying, time consuming box searches when it turns out they need something they packed somewhere. Does this sound like something that you want to deal with?

And another thing. How many boxes are you going to need for all your belongings? Exactly. It’s really hard to estimate. What’ll likely happen is you’ll run out, or waste a lot of the supplies you bought.

A PACKING AND UNPACKING SERVICE CAN ACTUALLY SAVE YOU MONEY

When finding out how much packing and unpacking services cost for your move, it’s important to consider what you save too.

WHEN YOU SAVE SPACE PACKING, YOU SAVE MONEY

Professional packers know just how to make the most of packing space. We’ve been doing it for years, after all.

If you waste space packing yourself, it means you’ll pay more. That’s because there will be a bigger volume of stuff to go on the truck.

TIME IS MONEY

Is it convenient for you to take time off work to pack and unpack? And do you want to? Packing and unpacking hardly compares to an actual vacation.

If you have a job where you may get an emergency call if you take a day off, don’t risk doing your packing yourself. Because everything needs to be ready in time for moving day.

Cost up your time spent packing and unpacking versus a day working. It could work out better to leave it to professional packing and unpacking movers like Air1 Moving & Storage. This is especially true the more people there are in your household.

GET AN INSURANCE PAYOUT WITH A PACKING AND UNPACKING SERVICE

Your belongings are definitely safer when professional packers pack them. But in very rare cases, accidents can happen.

Do you have insurance? If so, check whether your insurance policy covers breakages during a move. Many insurance policies will cover you if you hire a professional packing and moving company. However, chances are that if you pack yourself, you probably won’t be covered.

WHEN YOU MIGHT NOT NEED A PACKING AND UNPACKING SERVICE

Is this you?

  • On a very strict budget

  • Enjoys hard physical work

  • Has several days free

  • Doesn’t have expensive breakables such as art or glassware

  • Doesn’t have many possessions

We’re not in the business of hard-selling packing services.  So if the above describes you, packing your belongings yourself could be OK. And if you need durable packing supplies, we’re here for you.
