Movers can pack for you. Hire them, and don’t worry about boxes. One of the worst parts of moving is packing. Many people hate packing because it takes time and effort. It’s optional!
How Much Will a Moving Company Pack?
We often get this question. It’s true, despite your skepticism! Movers can pack everything you didn’t have time to do.
Most full-service moving companies will wrap, secure, and box your items before loading them on their truck or your rental.
Is Unpacking Included in Moving?
Absolutely! What’s better than having someone unpack everything you’re too tired to do after a long day of moving? Unpacking at your destination isn’t as common as packing, but it’s available.
We offer unpacking and free organizing for those who want a hands-off, no-hassle moving experience. It’s as nice as it sounds.
Movers Will Not Pack
It’s only some or nothing to hire movers to pack and unpack. Let them know if there are pieces you’d rather handle yourself. There are some items that most moving companies will need help packing.
Not packed by movers:
Cash, jewelry (transport these in your car)
Anything with mold or insect damage
Items soiled by human/animal bodily fluids
Heavy equipment (often limited to 600 lbs.)
These include items no Movers in Dubai will touch (think: chemical barrels or furniture containing roaches or bedbugs). Some companies train staff to move specific items, like cars. Contact a specialty Moving company in Dubai if you need assistance moving such an item.
What Does Packing Cost?
Moving companies charge by the hour for packing services.
Since it’s a separate service, this rate is often different from your move.
Why charge by the hour?
Packing services are always priced separately because only some need or want them.
Most people own many more items than they realize.
Depending on the contents, a 2-bedroom home may take longer than a 3-bedroom home or apartment.
The time it takes to pack will greatly affect your moving time and cost.
This is especially true if you’re packing only some things. Having movers who pack completely handle your stuff means you’re less likely to realize how much time it takes.
Before committing, you should know the moving company’s packing and unpacking costs. 3 Men Movers’ packing rate depends on the day of the week and our moving hourly rate.
How to Prepare for Packers
Before your packers arrive, here are the best things to do after booking packing (or unpacking) services with your chosen movers:
Set out any moving supplies and boxes you already have.
Packers can see everything by opening all closets and drawers.
Clean and organize as much as possible.
Should I Book Movers to Pack Soon?
Depending on your needs, packers should be hired 1-2 days before your move. If you have a few things or need last-minute help, ask if the packers can come in the morning and schedule your move for the afternoon. If you only have a few items, consider whether you need packers or can do it yourself.
