Packing & Unpacking

Proper packing is a fundamental aspect of a successful move. When properly prepared, even the most fragile items can be relocated safely. The way your belongings are handled prior to transit can make the difference between a great move and disappointing one.

Professional Packing

Our professional packers have been trained to package your goods so that they stay safe and secure during your move. We expertly wrap and box your household goods including artwork, china, stemware, lamps, antiques and chandeliers. If need be, our staff can build custom crates to protect your valuables and fragile goods while in transit or storage.

Packing Your Own Belongings

If you choose to go the “do-it-yourself” route, please review our packing tips and allow yourself plenty of time to get the job done. For your convenience, we offer a range of packing materials, cartons, tape and packing paper here. Please contact our office to speak with a move counselor if you have any questions or stop by for a quick demonstration.

Splitting the Job

You may choose to have us pack the most fragile or difficult to pack items such as stemware, china, large paintings and mattresses while you take care of the easier packing. We can pack as little or as much as you would like in preparation for your move.


Why wrestle with moving boxes for days when you could let the pros handle it for you in a matter of hours? Take some time to explore your new neighborhood while our team unpacks your belongings and takes away the used cardboard, tape and paper!
