Packing for your upcoming move

Packing For Your Upcoming Move: Trust The Pros

Benefits of using a professional packer

It has been said that moving is one of the top 3 most stressful events in a person’s life. Two specific parts of the move that that typically provide the most stress are the planning and preparation for the move. Preparation includes decluttering and packing for your upcoming move. While the decluttering portion of move preparation can take some time as you filter through your belongings, the most time consuming and difficult task is typically packing for your upcoming move. Whether you’re moving locally in Winnipeg or moving across Canada, packing for your upcoming move takes time, and can be overwhelming. Using professional packers can be a great way for you to have your packing done, and quickly and efficiently (no pun intended).

As you prepare, and begin to think about packing for your upcoming move, here are some of the benefits that you will receive with using professional packers.

 Packing efficiency

Depending on the room, packing for your upcoming move in rooms such as workshops or basement can take days or even weeks. Professional packers are experienced in industry best practices, and are able to pack at speeds that would surprise you. What would take you days, may take your professional packing team only a matter of hours.

Packing material

As you prepare to begin packing for your upcoming move, finding good quality packing materials can be difficult. More and more companies are going green and recycling boxes, making it harder to find packing material. Rubber bins may be sufficient for clothes, but putting grandma’s fine china in a rubber bin may not be the best idea. When you hire professional packers, you know that they only use the best products, and materials that are specifically chosen for your job. You don’t have to worry about using the boxes someone was giving away online, that look like they are about to fall apart. Professional packers use only the best materials for your move thus minimizing the chances that your goods will be damaged during the move.

More time

If you use professionals for packing for your upcoming move, you will also have more time to be able to do everything else that comes with moving. There are so many different tasks that come with moving (and potentially more depending on whether you’re moving locally or long distance) such as getting internet set up, notifying Canada post, notifying other vendors of your change of address, decluttering and disposing of the items, and sentimental tasks such as saying goodbye to friends and family, and taking time to remember the memories made in your home. By utilizing professional packers, you will have more time to take care of all the tasks that come with moving.

Best practices

As we mentioned in one of the steps above, packing for your upcoming move can be overwhelming especially when it pertains to packing fragile items such as fine china, or figurines. Professional movers are up to date on industry best practices. They also bring a wealth of experience on the best way to handle anything from fragile items like vases to big and bulky items like Large mirrors. Your professional packing crew will be able to pack things safely, and efficiently, which will once again, minimize any chances of damage to your goods.

Improved organization

Professional packers also ensure that things remain organized when packing for your upcoming move. Professional packers operate in a methodical pattern and go room by room to ensure that things don’t get mixed up, and so that unpacking will be easy and straight forward. Keeping your goods organized will also ensure that you have enough room to maneuver in your home without being overwhelmed and boxed in with all the boxes between your pack and load.

Depending on the situation you find yourself in, using professional packers to help ensure that packing for your upcoming move is complete before your moving crew arrives. Time can be a luxury that many people cannot afford in preparation of their move. If you find yourself in this situation with lots to do, and little time to do it in, arranging for packing crews can help speed your process up.
