Common Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring a Pre-Packing Service

Moving New Home

A pre-packing service is a convenient option offered by many moving companies that involves having professional packers come to your home and pack all of your belongings for you before the move. 

This service is designed to reduce the stress and workload of moving by taking care of the packing for you. It can be especially helpful if you have many items to pack or need more time or energy to pack everything yourself.

When you hire a moving company for a pre-packing service, they typically provide all necessary packing materials, including boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper. They will pack everything carefully to ensure nothing is damaged during the move.


To ensure you get the best possible pre-packing service, there are some common mistakes to avoid. 

First, don’t just hire the first pre-packing service you find. Do your research and read reviews from past customers to find a reputable provider with a proven track record of success. Secondly, ensure you get a written estimate from the pre-packing service to avoid any surprises or hidden fees later.

Knowing what you want the pre-packing service to do is also essential. Let them know which items you want to be packed and which you wish to pack yourself to ensure everything is packed correctly and that nothing gets left behind. 


Additionally, be sure to ask for references from past customers and provide the pre-packing service has adequate insurance coverage in case anything is damaged during packing.

While it may be tempting to let the pre-packing service handle everything, it’s essential to be present during packing to ensure everything is packed properly and nothing is missed. Lastly, communicate effectively with the pre-packing service and let them know your expectations and any special requirements you may have.


By avoiding these common mistakes, you can ensure that you get the best possible pre-packing service and that your move goes as smoothly as possible.
