Services from Professional Movers and Packers

Whatever your packing and unpacking needs are, we can connect you with a Denver relocation specialist ready to deliver.

 

Full Packing

When you want a no-hassle approach to moving, a full packing solution is the way to go. All you need to do is provide your movers with direction about what goes where, and they’ll step up to plate and tackle the task with gusto. All our partners are seasoned professionals who understand the importance of a solid packing job.

 

Partial Packing

If you’ve made it halfway through packing up your home before realizing what a chore it is, or you just need some extra items from your basement flagged for storage, a partial packing solution is an excellent way to go. It can save you more money than if you scheduled a full packing service, but it still frees you up to make better use of your time.

 

Packing or Crating Antiques and Collectibles

All belongings aren’t created equal. There are some things in your life that require a special level of care. When it comes to particularly delicate antiques, keepsakes, or mementos, hiring a moving company to handle the packing and unpacking process can provide you an extra layer of security. They’ll treat your belongings as if they were their own, make sure everything is protected in the right packaging, and safely seal items to prevent damage from heat or cold.

 

Furniture Disassembly and Reassembly

Have you ever taken apart a piece of furniture just to realize later that it doesn’t fit back together, quite right? Have you ever reassembled a bookshelf only to realize that there are a few screws or bolts laying around, and you can’t figure for the life of you where they go? Avoid that on your next Denver relocation by hiring a moving company to handle the task. They do this for a living, and they know all the tricks and techniques to make sure your furniture fits back together the first try.

 

Packing for Storage

If it’s time for spring cleaning, we can help you find a moving company that will go above and beyond. They can take whatever you’re looking to stow away, carefully pack it up, and make sure it’s delivered to a secure storage facility.

 

Unpacking

Getting all your belongings to a new home or office can be a task in and of itself but staring down a stack of boxes ready to be unpacked can be just as trying. When you use a moving company from Cheap Denver Movers to handle your unpacking services, you can have your space set up in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take.

How to Pack for Your Upcoming Move

If you don’t hire movers to handle the entire packing process, you are in for quite a challenge. However, it doesn’t need to be intimidating. With a little organization and foresight, you can have the job handled in less time than you’d think.

 

Take Stock of Your Life

A new home is also an opportunity for a new start, and the process of packing can be a cathartic exercise. Consider what you really want to take with you, and don’t be afraid to throw out what you don’t. You’ll feel good about giving your unwanted items to charity, but you might feel better knowing they constitute one less thing you have to sort through later.

 

Set Aside Plenty of Time

If you think you can estimate how long the packing process will take, round up your number, then round it up again, then one more time. It’s hard to guess how long a move will take, and the longer you procrastinate, the more of a chore it becomes. Start early and pace yourself, and the entire process will be a whole lot less stressful than it might otherwise be.

 

Pack by Priority

Coming up with a system for organizing your boxes will make things a lot easier for the inevitable unpacking process. You might label boxes according to the room to which they’re going or use detailed descriptions and color-coordinating. Whatever your methodology, pay special attention to the things you’ll need most immediately. Placing clear and quickly distinguishable marks on essential supplies like bedding, towels, and basic bathroom and kitchen products means you can get settled in quick and worry about the rest of your possessions at your own leisure. Many professional packers even recommend packing these essentials in a clear container to make them easier to spot.

 

Pack Light

You might think that the larger the box, the heavier it should be, but professionals exercise the opposite philosophy. As you go up in sizes, you should start packing them with more voluminous but lighter contents. As a rule of thumb, use smaller boxes for books, medium sized boxes for light appliances and assorted odds and ends, and large boxes for bulkier but lighter items, like your various bedding products.

 

Use the Containers You Have

Why use a box when you have a perfectly good chest? Make use of your existing furniture. Keep your clothes in your dresser, and if you have empty containers, don’t let them leave the house that way. Making the most of what you already have can help you save time both when packing and unpacking. While we’re talking about things laying around the house, trash bags are a great way to carry softer and non-breakable items that would otherwise just take up space in your boxes or crates.

 

Label Boxes Clearly

When it’s time for you to start unpacking, you’ll regret it if the contents of the boxes are scrawled in tiny letters. Be bold with your labels and mark multiple sides, so you can quickly get them to their destination at the new home or office.

 

Keep in mind, you don’t have to do all or any of the packing on your own. Some of Denver’s best professional moving services are ready to give you a hand with the packing or unpacking for your relocation. Call us today to request free quotes!
