A few months ago, I started thinking about different ways to improve my family's experience. I wanted to expose them to new cultures and new ideas, so I started talking with my employer about opportunities abroad. I was able to find a few different places that offered great jobs within my company, so I took a position and told my family we were moving. They were really amazing to work with, and before we knew it, we were packing to move. This blog is all about creating memories while moving, and the benefits of relocation.

Preparing to move to a new home can be as much work as the move itself. Unfortunately, many people will find this entire process to be overwhelming. In order to reduce the amount of work that you must do for your move, there are packing services that can handle much of the more cumbersome work for you.
Do You Still Need To Provide The Packing Service With Boxes And Other Supplies?
Packing all of the possessions in your home may require a large number of boxes and other packing supplies. Not surprisingly, gathering these supplies can be difficult, as you might not know how much of them that you need. When hiring a professional packing service to oversee this part of the process, they will provide all of the supplies that will be needed to pack and move the home. This can save you the time from needing to make trips to get supplies, and it can eliminate the risk of wasting money by buying too many supplies.
Will The Packers Be More Likely To Damage Your Items?
Homeowners may be concerned about letting strangers pack their possessions due to concerns that they will damage them. Professional packing services will have technicians that are trained in the strategies for safely packing artwork, electronics, antiques and other items that are difficult to safely and efficiently pack. If you use the same service to both pack and move these items, you also enjoy protection against any damages that may occur, as they will likely be insured and bonded. In contrast, this is a level of protection that you will not have if you have chosen to handle this part of the process on your own.
How Long Should Be Dedicated To Packing?
Many moves will be extremely time-sensitive. This can be due to having a strict move-out date for where you are currently living while also being constrained with the move-in date for your new place. Luckily, professional packing services will be able to completely pack your home extremely quickly. However, you will still need to have the home evaluated by these services first, as this will allow them to determine the size of the truck that will be needed as well as the amount of packing supplies. Typically, this evaluation should be done a few days before the scheduled packing day. While you may have a lot going on during this time, this evaluation should only take an hour or two, which can allow you to continue to focus on the rest of the planning that your move demands.
