Many people dread moving because packing can be a chore. It is time consuming and you have to ensure everything is properly packed to make sure your belongings are safe and sound during transport. If you live a busy life or your move is quickly creeping up on you, you may be looking to hire a moving company to help you with packing services. At Ed's Moving and Storage, we offer full packing services. If you have never hired a company that offers full packing services, you may be unsure of what this entails. Here is what services are provided when you select this packing option:


Padding the Item

One of the things that is involved in full packing services is padding or protecting all of the items that need it. This may include televisions, computers, or even your furniture. You cannot simply throw these items in a box or put them in the back of a moving truck. They can get scratched, dented, dinged, or even break. A professional moving company will use bubble wrap, moving blankets, or foam to protect these delicate items, ensuring they are safe during transport. 


Crating the Item

If you have items that are odd-shaped and fragile, placing them in a standard box may not work. The standard box may be too large and may allow the item to wiggle around, leaving it vulnerable to damage during transit. In these instances, the item may need to be crated. This involves building a wood box around the item and then lining the box with foam. This is typically done for valuable and fragile items, such as art, collectibles, and wine collections. Full packing services typically include crating services. 


Packing Your Belongings

The last feature of our full packing services is packing your belongings. This includes all of the regular household goods that can be packed in boxes, including clothing, kitchen goods, and linens. Our expert movers will select the right sized box to properly protect your belongings. They will then appropriately fill the boxes so that the boxes are not overloaded. They will strategically arrange your goods so the boxes are filled, yet keep everything from one room or area together to make for faster unpacking. The boxes will also be labeled, so you know exactly what they contain.
