Our Professional Packing Services
To ensure proper packing and preparation of your shipment, you may prefer to have your household goods professionally packed by a Walker's Van & Storage | Capital Movers & Storage team.
We will provide trained packers to ensure the highest level of protection for your belongings. Depending on the size of your shipment, one or more packers may be assigned to your move.
Specialized cartons designed for china, prints, linens, etc. will be used as well as paper, tissue and bubble wrap to ensure safe transport. Items for packing will be removed from cupboards and closets by the packers. You must remove items for packing that are attached to walls. On pack day, your packing crew will use professional packing materials such as clean, recyclable Kraft paper, micro foam, boxes and specialized cartons to ensure your belongings are well protected.
Packing service is normally performed the day before loading. Small loads may be packed on the same day.
Once the packing crew has finished packing you will be asked to sign a Packing Certificate. Your signature on the Packing Certificate will confirm the number of cartons that were packed.
If you elect unpacking at destination, the professional crew will empty the cartons you wish unpacked, placing the unwrapped items on tables or countertops. Unpacking does not include putting away or setting up packed items. The principal benefit of unpacking services is the prompt removal of many of your packing cartons and paper, easing your process of moving in and settling into your new home.
After you have emptied all additional cartons, you may call your destination agent for a carton removal service.
The proper preparation of your possessions before they are loaded into the van or container is essential to the success of your move. If you elect to pack part or all of your household goods yourself, be prepared with the proper materials you will need to adequately protect your belongings for the journey. Remember – if your packing is not done properly, you will be responsible for any resulting damage. It is recommended that you pack only unbreakable items, such as linens and books. Remember, all owner packed items travel at the owner’s risk. Professional packing is the best way to safeguard against breakage.
