Hello, and thank you for visiting!

Hiring packing services can be a huge relief and an important measure to protect your items from costly damage duringt ransit. However, how do you determine if the benefits are worth the added cost? If you have a large home filled with furniture, a tight schedule, and a significant amount of valuable or fragile items, you may opt to hire professional packers.

How Much Will It Cost?

The price of professional packers is usually determined by the volume of your belongings, the time it will take to pack them, and the cost of the necessary supplies. While it certainly varies, the contents of the average four-bedroom house weigh about 15,000 pounds. According to an online packing service calculator, the expenses you will incur ill be about:

  • $900 for Labor
  • $500 for Materials

How to Save Money on Packing Services

If you would like a little help with your packing, but are on a fixed moving budget, there are a few ways to get the aid without breaking the bank:

  • Only pay for packing services for difficult, valuable and fragile items. This includes furniture, electronics, china, glassware, artwork and antiques.
  • Use your own supplies. Obtain your ownboxes, packing paper, bubble wrap and moving blankets. Before doing so, make sure you discuss it with your packers--some companies already include the cost of materials in your fixed hourly rate, without offering a discount if you provide your own materials.
