Professional packing services are a boon
Moving from one place to another is a huge task, even if it is just around the corner or to another part of the world. The task becomes all the more tedious and cumbersome when it is not just one person moving, but the entire household. It is a highly demanding task.
There are so many things to pack, unpack and transport, from small items like clothes, books, crockery, to large expensive pieces of furniture.
So, it is not just the packing of the items which demands a lot of time, attention and effort, but also the transit and unpacking of the items.
And the most important concern here is safety of the items.
No one would want to see their expensive crystal vase, gifted to them on their wedding day, broken into pieces when they reach their destination.
This would affect you practically, financially and emotionally.
This is where the professional packing services come into the picture.
These services are mostly offered by the moving company itself, which has trained staff for the purpose.
They will charge additional money for the services but availing the packing services is worth every penny.
You will save the time; physical effort; wastage of material and all your belongings will be in safe and professional hands and will be well-protected.
Hence, the benefits of having a professional packing company do the packing, moving and unpacking should never be overlooked.
There are many of us who believe that wrapping our belongings in a newspaper or a bubble wrap and putting them in any available boxes is enough, however, this does not turn out to be the case when the destination is reached.
So, let us have a look at why you should use the professional abilities of a packing service:
• Time: When the entire household is being moved, there are many things to worry about like the switching of utility connections, changing the address, finding a new school and a new house and between all these things happening, you can definitely save yourself the much important time by delegating the responsibility of packing and moving to the professionals.
The time saved can be used for other more important tasks and even to relax.
The professional packing service also saves time when the time comes for unpacking.
You don’t have to worry about the whereabouts of each thing and how to unpack and resettle everything.
Also, when done yourself, the process may take several days and you still won’t be sure whether the goods have been packed safely and appropriately, and if done by the professional packing service providers, the process takes just about a day.
• Opportunity cost: You may think of saving some money by packing all the items yourself by using the available resources like newspapers, cardboard boxes etc.
However, if you add up all the cost for the packing material including the boxes, tapes, wrapping material, and also consider the money saved by protecting your belongings from potential damage, professional packing services turns out to be a better and more sensible deal.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
The company already provides the staff, equipment and material for packing, you do not have to invest in any of these or bear the operational and maintenance costs associated with packaging machines.
• Safety: Our household items not only have material value attached to them, but also a lot of emotional values and memories are attached to each item.
When you pack them yourself, there is a very high probability of them getting damaged and broken in the transit. But with the help of a professional packing service, this risk can be highly minimized.
The professionals know how to disassemble your furniture as needed and pick them all correctly.
They will use proper packing supplies, like stretch wrap and pad wrap; specialized boxes and packing material for clothes, furniture etc.
Depending on the fragility of the items to be packed, the packaging material is chosen and used.
• Peace of mind: At the time of so many changes happening, like a new house, new job, packing and moving should be the last of your concerns.
Hence, once you give this task to the professionals, you can rest assured that everything is well taken care of, all the goods will be safely and securely packed and transported, you will not have to spend your valuable time and you will be at the lowest risk of damaging your belongings.
You can focus on the myriad of other details associated with moving and save yourself from the boring and physically-taxing task of packing and unpacking.
• Insurance: Another benefit of using professional packing services is that the goods remain insured.
In the worst case scenario, if any of the items breaks during the transit, the professional service provider is liable for paying any damage to the items packed by them.
The packing service assumes liability of the products packed by them.
• Accurate estimate: If you plan on packing your goods yourself, there is a good chance that you may end up buying excess or less packing material than you really need.
But in the case of a professional packing service provider, the company will send a surveyor to your home to make a list of the items to be packed and to take details of special requirements.
After the survey is done, you will get an estimate of the material and labor required.
This will also help in determining the time required for the packers to complete their job.
Thus, the time required and the budget can be planned more precisely.
• Professional touch: Even if you are well-prepared and have done the packing and moving many times, there is nothing better than using the professional expertise.
They are highly experienced in handling fragile, heavy and special care items and they have experience and familiarity with packing materials and procedures.
They perform the task with utmost perfection, in minimum time and with maximum efficiency.
The goods are safely padded and secured and run low risk of being damaged.
They remain neatly organized and it becomes easy at the time of unpacking too.
Thus, after considering all the factors mentioned above, it is always a good decision to let go of the tedious and time-consuming task of packing and give the responsibility to a professional packing service provider.
The packing service provider should be chosen after good research.
The provider must have a good reputation, and the company must be punctual, dedicated, reliable, dependable and responsible.
The services may also be availed on a full or partial basis.
In the full service, all the items to be transported are packed by the movers and in partial packing service, only the specific items like large furniture, fragile items and similar goods are packed by the packing service company.
So, before you plan on moving to another place, you must keep all these factors in mind and this time, instead of taking all the burden on yourself, you should not worry about this demanding aspect of moving and take the professional help of a packing service provider to make your job easier, better and more professional.
