When you’re packing for a move, you might want to ask yourself it you should pack it yourself or hire professional to do if for you. In many of our moves we’ve never used professionals to pack our things; for me it’s always about saving money. Others I know swear by packing professionals, claiming they’re worth every penny. And I believe it! But if you’re like me and you just can’t afford the price-tag, use these tips from the professionals to make sure your stuff arrives at your new home without cracks, scrapes or permanent damage.
If you have specialty items or items that are worth a lot of money, it might be worth it to hire professionals to pack them properly. Chandeliers, large glass pieces (sculptures, oversized mirrors and glass top tables), and some fine antique furnishings that may just need to be properly padded. Major appliances also require special care.
