What do professional packers do?
Professional packers provide packing materials, including supplies for any item that might require specialty crating or packaging, such as fragile items, or artwork. You might also be wondering how long do professional packers take? In one day, two professional packers are able to pack up to 100-150 boxes. This is a considerable amount of boxes; think about the time that could save you! A common question asked is “how do I prepare my house for a packer?” It’s best that when the packers arrive, you have already decluttered and got rid of anything that will not be moving. Another very important preparation is knowing what will packers not pack. Your moving company will provide you a list on non-allowables, which will include: hazardous items, perishables, and plants. This way packing will be speedy, efficient and professional.
During a long distance move, should any damage occur to your belongings during transit, having professional packers pack for you will ensure your items have liability coverage.
