Enjoy some of the best packaging techniques by packing professionals, which we use to pack and load items as well as the supplies we use in doing 100% of our house packing jobs.
Large Items & Furniture:
Large items and furniture will be wrapped in our premium quality double-padded paper padding for the highest protection during the move. While we complete the packing and loading of Pods containers, we will identify items requiring this protection: dressers, tables, chairs, bookcases, coffee tables, end tables and all wood or metal pieces. Each item will be wrapped, covered and placed in PODS containers or rental trucks by our professional packing services team.
China & Glassware:
China and Glassware are packed using only double-thick china packing boxes and are wrapped with unprinted white paper. We take the utmost care of your china and glassware during the packing and unpacking process. We use the optimally-suited wrapping for your items preventing any form of discoloration or damage to your valuables. Beware of other packing services that will pack your items with regular newspaper as this will stain your china and glassware. Again, we always treat our customer’s property as if it was our own!
Plates & Saucers
Plates and Saucers are also wrapped individually with unprinted paper; they are packed in packing boxes standing upright or laying down with plenty of paper so as to further avoid risk of damage.
Bowls are wrapped individually and then they are stacked together from 2 to 6 pieces, wrapped again and packed standing upright in packing boxes.
Cups & Glassware:
Cups and Glassware are wrapped by the handles in paper, then are wrapped entirely and are packed in packing boxes with all handles lined up for additional safety during packing and unpacking of the Pods Container or rental truck.
Stemware is wrapped with white packaging paper and then placed in china or liquor boxes with dividers. Glasses are individually-wrapped and packed upside down in the box, to ensure security during the Packing and Loading process.
Books are professionally packed by our packers who stand these items vertically on the bottom edge in special book boxes.
Pots & Pans
Pots and Pans are packed using large boxes stacking these items together with packing paper inserts.
Lamps & Lampshades:
When packing lamps and lampshades we remove the shades and bulbs and wrap these items in layers of paper and place them in a box on their base. Lampshades are wrapped lightly in paper, neatly nested one inside the other and are packed in separate boxes.
Electronic Equipment is multi-wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a dedicated box.
Paintings, Mirrors, & Glass:
Packing Service Inc. uses only professional packers to wrap pictures, using bubble-wrap for extra protection; valuable pieces may need to be professionally crated by us, all at a flat rate. Estimating how many boxes will be needed while packing your valuables will vary from packing to crating. This will depend upon what is to be packed and how it will be packed. The ease of access to the pickup and destination address is also a factor. However, you will always receive our guaranteed flat rate per box.
