Most movers like USA Moving & Storage offer packing services . A few experienced movers working together can get your entire apartment packed in just hours, which is significantly less than the amount of time it would take you. An entire house obviously takes longer to pack, but the time you save with a professional moving company is well worth the cost.
You may still want to be involved in packing, even when you have a knowledgeable packing services . They may suggest a system for color coding or labeling boxes , which will only work if you are there to tell them what's really important. Even when dealing with movers with an impeccable reputation , your peace of mind will be greater if you take care of your jewelry and papers with important personal value yourself.
Your movers should express the importance of packing a couple of boxes with things that you will need immediately in your new home. Be more practical and pack them by room, labeling them clearly. When you move in, just unpack "Bedroom 1," "Kitchen 1," "Bathroom 1," etc. You'll be ready for your first night, probably within the first hour or so.
We sometimes tend towards overkill when packing something we think is fragile and breakable. Professional movers know what needs to be done to keep china or glass safe and protected; they won't pack it in too much extra material that you have way more boxes than needed.
