For many preparing for an upcoming move, the packing process is the most intimidating task on their list. Many will spend months preparing for packing, plus will stress about it and worry whether they’ll have enough time and space to pull it off.
At Sullivan Moving & Storage, we’re here to help. Not only do we offer comprehensive commercial and residential moving services, we provide both full and partial packing solutions to every single one of our clients as needed. Are you running a business that requires the full attention of you and your employees, meaning you won’t be able to take part in any packing for an upcoming office move? That’s no problem — we’ll handle every part of the process for you. On the other hand, are you a homeowner who wants to pack certain things on your own, but only needs help with a few specialty or larger items? We’re happy to help here as well, and with every situation in between.
How do full and partial packing services differ within the professional moving realm, and which should you choose? Let’s go over this, plus some important information on how to prepare for either of these scenarios.
As the name indicates, full packing refers to a situation where our professional movers pack up every loose item in your home (or office) before moving you. Our team will professionally wrap pack and label all household items into sturdy moving boxes.
Partial packing, on the other hand, means you’re only relying on us for packing certain specific items. Many clients who opt for partial packing are homeowners who have a lot of smaller belongings to be packed. Full service commercial moves often require this, too, as there’s no way one staff member could do the packing on their own in time for the arrival of equipment and crew members.
In many cases, items chosen for professional packing within a partial packing setup are those that require special attention during the move.
These might include:
If your specialty items aren’t listed here, don’t fret! This is just a short list of items — anything you want can be added to the list of items we’ll pack up for you.
In virtually all packing situations, unpacking services will mirror the packing services you order. That is, we’ll unpack all the items we packed for you at your final destination, ensuring there are no issues here; items you packed on your own, on the other hand, will generally be your own responsibility. In addition to unpacking, we will remove all the boxes and packing paper upon our departure.
No matter whether you opt for full or partial packing from our team, both settings highlight the importance of being prepared and organized ahead of your move. During a partial pack, for instance, our team needs to know exactly which items we’ll pack, and which ones you’ll be packing yourself. This is the best way to ensure your transition goes smoothly without any unwelcome surprises or last-minute stress.
Here are some general organization tips for the packing process of any move:
While there may be some crux points throughout, the basic approach to full packing from our team is simple: Once things are organized in simple ways, simply get out of the way and let our team handle the job for you.
With partial packing setups, however, things can be a bit more complex. Our team will often be packing and moving right alongside you, and it pays to take a few basic steps to avoid any confusion or hassle here:
