Full Service Professional Packing Services
Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, but a local packing and moving company in Fort Myers, Florida can make the process much easier. There are several types of packing and moving companies to choose from, depending on your needs and budget.
Full service packing and moving companies are a popular choice for those who want a hassle-free moving experience. These companies will handle your entire move from packing all of your important clothes and memories to placing them safely them on one of our trucks and giving them a lift to your new home. We can also unpack your belongings once you arrive at your destination. This option can be more expensive than others, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for a hands-off approach to moving.
Packing only services are a great option for those who want to handle the actual move themselves but need help packing their belongings. These companies will come to your home and pack up your belongings for you, using professional packing materials to ensure everything is secure for transport. This option can be more affordable than full service packing and moving companies, and it allows you to have more control over the actual move.
Long distance packing and moving companies specialize in moves that are further away, such as across Florida or even across the country. These companies will have the necessary equipment and experience to handle long distance moves, including proper packing techniques and secure transportation methods.
If you’re on a tight budget, professional packing services may be a good option. These companies will pack your belongings for you, but you’ll be responsible for loading and transporting them to your new home. This can be a good compromise between full service packing and moving companies and packing only services.
When it comes to hiring a packing and moving company, one of the most common questions people have is how much it will cost. The cost of hiring movers that pack and unpack can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the size of your home, if you are a minimalist or not, how many people live with you, what floor the homes and storage is on, and how far your new home is!

Where do I Start When Packing to Move?
When it comes to packing for a move, it’s important to start with a plan. Begin by assessing the items you have and determining what you want to keep, donate, sell, or dispose of. Places like Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, and Matthews House are great resources to help thru this process. Decluttering will streamline the packing that needs to be done in your home.
Once you have a better idea of what you’re keeping, it’s helpful to create an inventory and label your boxes accordingly. We can provide you with boxes and supplies as well. Starting with storage rooms and or closets is a great first step. Consider packing room by room and starting with the items you use least frequently, such as seasonal decorations like Christmas trees, Halloween decorations, or extra linens.
Make sure to have plenty of packing materials on hand, such as boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, and tape. And don’t forget to keep important documents and valuables separate and easily accessible during the move. Sometimes these items are best taken in your car or truck with you. With a little planning and organization, packing for a move can be much less overwhelming.
What do Professional Movers Pack First?
When we start a packing job our team will split up and start in different places. We will have 1-2 people in the kitchen, then the living room and so on. We usually try to go where there is the most work and go from room to room in that order. If we are moving you the same day we like to get the dressers prepared as well since they would be some of the first items to load onto the truck.
Will Movers Move Things Not in Boxes?
Depending on the items we can move things that aren’t in boxes. If its possible we would try to put as many of your belongings in boxes to keep your move and unpacking more organized for you. Things like lamps and clothes can be prepared easily to be moved safely in boxes.
Do Movers Require Dresser Drawers to be Empty?
Emptying dresser drawers isn’t a requirement but it makes the move a lot quicker and safer. Many times heavy dressers that have to come down a flight of stairs will be need to be emptied first to make the descent safer and to ensure no damage is done to the stairs and stairwell.
What Should You Not do with Movers?
When our team arrives our goal is to provide you with a great 5-star customer experience. With that in mind, it’s important not to interfere with the movers’ work. While it’s natural to want to help, it’s best to let the movers do their job as they are trained to handle your furniture and items with care. If a customer with good intentions tries to help something could break or someone could get hurt. There will always be a lead mover onsite t coordinate with you to ensure you understand the whole process.
It’s also not recommended to pack and move valuable items, such as jewelry or important documents with the rest of your household items. Instead, it’s best to keep these items with you during the move, we recommend placing them in your personal vehicle.
Knowing the dos and don’t of a successful move beforehand will allow us to provide you with the care and service you deserve!
