When Should You Pay for Packing?

No matter what kind of move you’re making, there are bound to be a lot of expenses involved—it’s no wonder you probably don’t want to pay for anything you don’t need. But when it comes to packing, should you—or shouldn’t you—pay to have the pros take care of it?

Yes, Pay for Packing

While there’s no definitive yes or no answer that will work for everyone, having the option of paid packing services does have many benefits. The first, and probably most apparent, is that packing takes a lot of time and effort. Going from room to room or from office to office is a very large time investment and the actual work of packing can be labor-intensive.
Aside from that, not knowing the best ways to pack breakable or specialty items could leave you with little more than broken messes once arrive at your new space. If you have limited time, are inexperienced or unfamiliar with packing techniques, hiring professionals to do all or some of your packing could be a great idea.
You can rest easy knowing that your schedule is open and that even your most delicate items will arrive safely and securely at their new destinations.

No, You Could Probably Do Without

There is a case to be made for DIY-packing, however. If you move frequently and/or have a lot of experience with properly packing up your belongings, then you may not need the help of professionals.
You may also choose to go-it-alone if you have set aside a large amount of time to dedicate to packing up your things. There are few things less effective than waiting until the last minute to try and securely pack all of your precious belongings.
Take your time, work with the proper boxes, tape and other packing materials, and you should be on your way to a safe, effective move for all of your items—and more wiggle room in your budget!
