Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do packing services cost?

The cost of packing services ranges between $60 and $80. However, the cost you wind up paying will depend on a number of different factors. These factors include whether you have provided the moving boxes yourself or need to purchase them from the company, as well as the hourly rate of the packing service may charge. A larger-size home or office will often result in higher packing costs, as will the need to handle a lot of fragile or especially heavy/cumbersome items.

What are the advantages of packing services?

Hiring a professional packing service can help ensure your heavy, fragile and special-care belongings are handled safely during your move. These pros are familiar with all types of packing procedures and materials, and they’ll use the right tools and equipment to move your belongings. Packers and movers are also available to assist with cumbersome items like mattresses, safes and large furniture, and they can handle heavy lifting. And if needed, packers can disassemble and assemble furniture for you.

Who do I hire for unpacking and packing help?

Hire a professional moving, packing or unpacking service in your area for help. You can use a tool like Thumbtack to see the best services in your area, along with their ratings and reviews. Once you’ve identified a few professionals who seem like a good fit, get cost estimates from each of them and compare your quotes. Also, don’t forget to check licensing requirements in your state to make sure the professional you hire is properly licensed and insured.

Do movers unpack for you?

Yes, many movers offer unpacking services for you once they deliver your belongings to your new site, or even if you have already had them delivered. However, be aware that this could lead to higher charges, so be sure to ask the movers what their rates are. Movers also don’t usually put items away, but rather set them on tabletops and other surfaces. Some moving companies may have a policy preventing them from unpacking boxes you have packed yourself.

How do I prepare my house for a professional packer?

To prepare your house for a professional packer, start by completing a deep house cleaning and organizing session. This includes washing dishes, tools, laundry, beds, etc. Next, get rid of anything and everything you don’t need. Collect items that you plan on moving yourself. Organize everything, and label each box, marking anything that is high-value. Finally, have everything in a position where it’s easy for the packers and movers to access.

When should you start packing?

You should start picking up packing supplies (moving boxes, etc.) at least one to three months before you move. The earlier, the better. Start by cleaning your house and deciding what you will be taking, then follow up by selling or donating whatever you don’t need. At around four weeks out, decide on a moving service and schedule your move-out date. And start the packing process by putting your belongings into boxes, wrapping furniture and organizing for the unload.

Where do you start packing when moving out?

When deciding on what to pack first, think about how you can minimize disruptions to your everyday life. For example, start with storage areas such as the basement or attic. These items are not likely to be needed in the next few weeks. Next, move onto storage areas like the shed, closet and garage. Pack away any out-of-season items you won’t need in the next month. Then, move on to tools, equipment, books, collections and displays you don’t utilize in your day-to-day life. Things like clothes, towels, sheets and dishes should be packed closer to your move-out date.

Do movers pack boxes for you?

Many moving companies offer packing services as well. While the typical role of movers is to move already-packed boxes, furniture and other belongings, these pros are also skilled in safely packing belongings in less time than the average person. They have the materials and experience to protect fragile items and predict potential damage in the moving process. This is particularly important for glass and artwork.

What is a packing service?

A packing service helps homeowners and businesses pack up their belongings in preparation for a move, as well as unpack items when moving in. They’re often used to help with large numbers of items and are a great choice when there are multiple floors to contend with. 

Professional packing services can also provide boxes or use the boxes you provide them. They can also help assemble furniture and perform heavy lifting, as well as deal with valuable, delicate or cumbersome items.

These guys were the best! I have moved several times over the last 65+ Years...but nothing like this. I had different movers in Alabama pack up 40 years of life and move it in to two pods to be delivered here in Dallas The Pods arrived here (not in the best conditions for overstuffed) and these guys unloaded with care and extreme attention to detail. They were kind, courteous, punctual, and fun to work with! I highly recommend their services!

Wow. I have a massive house with a lot of stuff and didn't have a lot of time to purge before moving day because of working full time and other dramas. I had load/unload scheduled with a different uhaul moving help company that was terrible in communication and never confirmed with two weeks and several messages from me what time they woild start. Que being 2 days before the big move cross country with a house full of stuff and my friend telling me I need packers. I sent my details to Move It and immediately had a response and call. I told the owner how overwhelmed I was and he assured me several times through then and the next day it will be okay they can get it done...and wow did they ever. The owner, and one crew member arrived and started work at 10:30. It took 3 men , interchanged for breaks and time schedules, 12 hours to pack up a 4 bedroom 3 bath house AND load it into a 26 inch truck. The entire truck was full. They treated all my things with extreme care, packed the uhaul with 1/4 tie down technique, were pleasant to talk to, and did everything int their power to get all my stuff in that truck. I still have some stuff left over but they advised me how to pack it in the truck and in a trailer I will have. Loading wasnt originally on the ticket but after seeing how attentive and good the team was at their jobs, I asked if they had availability to replace my original movers. I fully expected with covid, crazy real estate market, and 1 days notice they couldnt. They fit it all in the same day!! I still had laundry to dry because I wasnt expecting to be packed and loaded tonight. (They waited patiently for me to dry my laundry before packing the dryer, and worked on other stuff). I will say one team member didnt seem as familiar with 26' big moves like this because they thought about trying to get the truck into the alley way for garage access. That wont work because in a big truck like that you cant do tight turns or driving backwards. The team usually does local moving and has their own nice looking box truck. I recommend this company highly. Have reasonabke expectations if you have heavy or a lot of stufd though because things inevitably happen in moving like scratching floors etc. My furniture was stretch wrapped blanketed and treated really well. They warned about how to open the uhaul so stuff wont fall down out of it because of how full it was haha. My spouse and I were about to have to eat chicken wings off an empty tote for dinner at the end of the service and Omar rolled out one of the coffee tables for us to eat on. We had it set aside because it didnt fit in the truck. I thought that was also very kind. What a great team and business owner!! Thanks again
