Experts in Moving and Storage in Boston Weigh In on Who Should Pack for a Move
Online PR News – 16-September-2013 –Packing can be one of the most difficult and time consuming parts of moving. Some may find it better to pay for the moving company or a professional pack service to pack for them. Others may prefer to handle it themselves, no matter how daunting the challenge.
There are some strong advantages to paying a moving company to handle packing. It’s reliable, time efficient, and safer for delicate items. To help with this decision, the professionals at Humboldt Storage and Moving have a new video detailing the advantages of hiring a moving company to pack.
Reliability and Time Saved: Chances are, most customers aren’t professional packers. This means more time spent packing belongings in an organized, reliable manner that should guarantee the safety of the items. It also saves individuals a lot of their own time, which can be better spent attending to other aspects of the moving process.
Liability: When valuation is purchased, moving companies are liable for every box they pack, meaning they can be charged for items damaged during the move. Should the owners pack the boxes themselves, the moving company is no longer liable for whatever happens to the items inside. The moving company has no idea how carefully or organized the boxes were packed, so it’s hard to know who is at fault. This means owners should be extremely careful when packing themselves.
Save Delicate Items for Moving Company: Since liability is waived for “packed by owner” (PBO) boxes, owners should seriously consider paying the moving company to pack delicate and fragile items. They will be packaged professionally and safely, and the moving company will be held responsible for the move.
