What is the most stressful part of moving? If you’re like most people, you’d answer, “Why, packing, of course!” Okay, so you might not say it exactly like that, but you’d probably agree that packing for a big move comes with its frustrations. And if you have a large house, lots of kids, lots of stuff, or all of the above, your stress is probably multiplied.

Packing is overwhelming because we know that if it’s not done in a certain way and in a certain order, our move will be more stressful than it needs to be. Often, we’re plagued with questions like: “What if my stuff gets broken? What if I didn’t buy enough boxes, tape, or sharpie markers for labeling?” or finally, “What if I can’t find anything when we’re unpacking?” These are perfectly normal questions and if you’re asking them, you’re not alone. But this leads us to ask yet another question, “Is there an easier way?”

What if we offered you a solution to one of the most stress-inducing activities, (besides giving birth and running a marathon) the world has ever known? That’s right, the solution to all of your moving woes is to hire the packers—no, not the football team; we’re talking about a professional packing service. There are some significant and solid reasons to hire packers to help you with your move and in this blog, we’re going to discuss some of the best ones.

They Are Trained Professionals

If for some strange reason, you’re assuming that the packers you hire are going to be some random group of guys who don’t know what they’re doing, you’ve got the wrong idea about professional packers. The packers are professionally trained to pack your home efficiently, carefully, and speedily. The job they will do for you is a far cry from your belongings being hastily thrown into boxes; rather, your items will be packed with the utmost organization and care to ensure safe delivery and stress-free unpacking. Imagine the way you treat your own stuff, only more careful and better organized. Trust these pros.

They Will Have a Better Handle on Your Whole Move

Think about this: if you have the same company packing, load, and move you, they are basically being the “You” that your move needs. This makes so much sense because, as they did all of your packing, they know not only how the boxes should be loaded in the truck, but where the boxes should be placed when they make it into the new house. This means that you can basically remove yourself from the whole moving process. You can trust your packers with your move from start to finish.

Packers Will Save You Time

Many people dream of being able to clone themselves when they’ve got a million move-related things going on. The mail needs to be changed over, papers need to be signed, things need to be mailed, and a hundred other people need to contact you regarding the sale of your old home, or the purchase of your new one. And with packing on top of everything else, you are literally wondering how you’ll have time to do it all. Professional packers will give you back the precious time that you need by taking on that part of your move. Trust us, if you can handle answering the door, you can make all your phone calls and tie up all of the other loose ends in peace, because your packers have this.

They Have The Right Boxes For the Right Objects

Isn’t it frustrating when you’re trying to pack all your stuff and you’re finding that you can’t locate the right box for what you need? You have tons of breakable dishes but the only boxes you can find are the extra large ones. Or you’re looking for a great box for all of your daughter’s stuffed animals and all you can locate are tiny boxes. Your professional movers are prepared with the right size and type of boxes for all of your items. Whether that means a T.V. box for your large flat screen, a wardrobe box for your suits and dresses, a thin box for your paintings and art, or small boxes for your books.

Less Stress in Your Life

As we’ve stated above, moving can be one of the most stressful life events. The stress from moving can cause chaos in your household, forgetfulness at work, and even problems in your marriage. Why put yourself through of the stress and frustration of packing, especially when it might not even cost all that much more to hire packers! And since you know that stress is not only a tough thing for your mind to deal with, it can also take years off of your life. So save yourself the worry and frustration and hire professional packers.
