Packing

Let our professional and experienced packers take care of the most time-consuming part of every relocation.

Packing Services

Moving across the country is considered to be one of the top five most stressful events in a person’s life, and probably the most daunting part is packing your entire home. Here is where our team of professional cross-country movers can help you out. With our packing services at your disposal, you will be able to have efficient, fast, and most importantly, stress-free relocation. Here is all about packing services Cross Country Movers offer.

Why Take Packing Services in the First Place?

There can be many reasons why people decide to hire professionals to deal with their household belongings. Sometimes there is not enough time to do everything alone, or simply there is just too much going on and people feel safer if they leave packing to people trained for it. And even though it can be a nice and fun experience for the whole family to pack the entire house, this process can last from three to four weeks when it is done alone.

On the other hand, if you hire our cross country moving company, it can all be done in a couple of days max. Either way, one thing is for sure, no one has ever regretted taking packing services, while there are usually some regrets in the opposite case.

Cross Country Movers Offer Two Types of Packing Services

Moving cross country can be extremely hard and overwhelming, and it mostly depends on the size of your move. As you may realize, relocating a one-bedroom apartment is not the same as relocating a four-bedroom house. And depending on how much assistance you need with boxing up, we offer two types of services: full and partial. It makes no difference to us which one you choose – what we guarantee is that your belongings will be treated with utmost care. This means our team of trained professionals will know how to protect each object in order to achieve maximum protection.

What Is a Partial Packing Service?

If you are unsure how to tackle certain household belongings, like silverware and fragile belongings, you can hire our team of professionals to only deal with them. Once you contact us for cross-country moving services, our team will come to your home to make an inventory list of all the things you plan to bring with you. Based on that list, you will get a quote for your move. If you wish to take our partial packaging service, you will inform your designated agent about that. Then you will mark belongings from the inventory list that you wish our team to deal with. They will bring all the material you need, from medium-sized boxes to bubble wrap. Just bear in mind that if our team packs more than 15 medium-sized boxes, we will consider that to be full packaging.

What Is a Full Packaging Service?

On the other hand, if you wish our workers to pack everything from your inventory list, you can hire us for full assistance. Our professionals will deal with everything you plan to bring, from pots and pans to dishes and china cabinets. Also, they will bring all the packaging supplies. We use high-quality protecting materials and sturdy boxes to handle all the weight you put inside. Depending on the material they are dealing with, they will use different protective supplies. They will bring bubble wraps, blankets, paper, plastic wraps. Each item will be carefully protected and placed inside containers. Finally, they will label everything, so unpacking will be easy.

You Will Get Free of Charge Standard Packing Service

There may be no free lunch, but there is free help that we at Cross Country Movers provide. It would please you to know that once you hire us for moving service, you will get free of charge standard packaging. This means our team of professionals will come to your home pack and protect all of your large belongings, like lamps, refrigerators, TV, desks, cabinets, and so on. They will disassemble and reassemble all of your furniture, protect each piece with protective materials and place it on the truck. Once we are at your new home, they will reassemble everything and put it in the spot you desire.

Use Our Storage Units for Free

Another thing that is part of our essential moving service is storage units. Once you become our customer, you will be entitled to use our storage units for free for a whole month. This can be really helpful if you are on short notice to leave your old house and your new one is not ready yet. Our customers decide to take this advantage and give themselves more time to renovate their new home. This is for free no matter if you take our packaging assistance or not.

We Use a Special Labeling System to Ensure Your Belongings Are Safe When Moving

As you can see by now, safety is our top priority when handling your belongings, so we have implemented a top-notch labeling system to ensure your items don’t get lost. As a highly professional company with years of experience, we handle a lot of relocations daily and have to ensure we don’t mix up your boxes with someone else’s. And we don’t leave room for any mistakes to occur. We use a barcode sticker that our crew will place on each piece of your furniture and all boxes. Once the barcode is scanned, we will see where these boxes are heading off and who they belong to.

Our Team of Professional Packers Can Tackle All Challenges You Place in Front of Them

Once you hire Cross Country Movers, you will entrust your belongings to our trained professionals. And when we say trained, we truly mean that. You could say that dealing with different kinds of objects throughout the years has made our employees experts in the field, and we make sure to pass that knowledge to each newcomer.

You would be surprised how quickly things can get complicated when carrying a large sofa down the stairs. That is why it is crucial to have a team that knows what it’s doing to protect your belongings and themselves. Also, when it comes to packaging, certain rules must be followed to ensure nothing gets damaged during transportation.

For Your Bulky and Large Items, We Offer Custom Crating and Hoisting Services

Even though our team will handle all of your bulky belongings, some objects can just be oddly shaped to fit in any box. For this reason, we offer custom-made wooden boxes, built especially for that item. This is a good option for those customers who have large, fragile, and expensive belongings. If in need of a custom crate, you should only provide us with the exact dimensions of an object in question, and we’ll do the rest.

On the other hand, if you have really large furniture or objects like a piano, we offer to move the object with hoisting. This means the object will not be removed from the house by hand but with high-quality equipment, from a window or a terrace.

Your Belongings Will Be Safe With Our Moving Insurance

Security and protection of your belongings are our top priority. Even though we will do whatever is in our power to protect and carefully store your belongings, some accidents can happen. For this reason, we offer to all of our customers moving insurance. All of our customers will be protected with Mandatory Liability Coverage regardless of what kind of assistance they book us for. With this insurance, you will be covered and reimbursed 60 cents per pound of damaged goods. Furthermore, if you wish to protect your belongings, you can take our Full Value Replacement Insurance. With this insurance, you will get reimbursement for each damaged item in its full market value if we can not replace the item or fix it. Still, the condition for FRVI is that the insured items were packed by Cross Country Movers’ crew.

Do You Need Commercial Moving Services? We Can Help You With That Too

When it comes to relocation, we mean business, and there is no move we will refuse if the schedule allows us to make a move. So no matter which state you’re relocating to, our long-distance movers are here to help you. And the same is when it comes to what you are relocating. If you have, say, an office that needs to be packed and relocated in a couple of days, we will not let you down. Our team is trained in organizing and packaging office supplies, and you can rest assured everything will be intact and ready for use.

Still, There Are Things Our Crew Won’t Pack

Long-distance moving doesn’t come without risks, and a lot of unpredictable things can happen. We as a company strive to make the move to be the safest possible, but we can’t transport certain items for safety purposes. In fact, some items are prohibited from being transported by the law. When you start packaging, it would be best to ask your designated agent to give you a detailed list of things that can not be on the truck. Still, here are some to keep in mind:

  • All flammable materials,
  • Weapons and ammo,
  • Chemicals,
  • Propane tanks,
  • Scuba tanks,
  • Live plants,
  • Food and other perishable products.

Good Packaging Is Crucial for Safe Transport

If you decide against hiring us for packaging, it would be good to learn some tips on how to pack your items properly for transporting long distances. For example, when packaging fragile items, ensure you never leave any hollow space inside the containers. You must prevent any movements from happening inside the container. Also, it would be good to reinforce the edges of boxes to prevent any accidental tear. When labeling, place labels on all four sides of the box so our workers can see what is inside no matter how they approach a box. And they will not struggle with placing each box in corresponding rooms, which will make your unpacking a lot easier.

Contact Us and Get a Quote for Your Move Today

If you wish to hire us to assist you with packaging your household, you can immediately start this process. Contact us on our website and ask for a free quote.

And best of all, with us, you can do this estimation online from the comfort of your home. If you wish you can ask our agent to arrange a video survey. Also, if you wish to speed the process, even more, you can always make your own inventory list before our team arrives. And once you get a quote for your move, you can consider whether to hire us for any additional assistance. But in our experience, customers are pretty satisfied with the offer we make, so contact us today.
