Full Tacoma Packing Services

Should you hire a full-service moving crew? This is a decision you need to make based on time versus cost. A packing service could add a couple hundred dollars to your moving budget. However, if you need to take extended time off of work in order to get the house packed and organized, investing in full-service packing may be well worth the price. Most of the time, our local movers can pack your entire home in one day. This saves not only time, but the hassle of living with — and out of — boxes.

Packing Specialty Items

If you’re concerned about transporting fragile and valuable items to your new home or simply want to lower the cost of your move while you pack everything else yourself, then we recommend that you invest in our specialty item packing services. We offer specialty packing for artwork, mirrors, and other breakable items that require extra care. If you have a large number of sensitive items, then we recommend that you inquire about our crating services.

 

Self-Packing

In some cases, it makes more sense to pack your home yourself and leave the moving to us. We offer a convenient box delivery service with a minimum rate of $60.

You many choose to order boxes and supplies custom to your needs, or you may choose one of our convenient pack kits. Our pack kits are designed based on experience and generally cover all of our clients’ needs.

Pack Kits:

• Apartment Kit (1–2 Rooms) $225

Includes: 20 medium boxes, 15 large boxes, tape, tape dispenser, bubble roll, knife, and marker

• Small Home Kit (2–4 Bedrooms) $325

Includes: 25 small boxes, 20 medium boxes, 15 large boxes, tape, tape dispenser, bubble roll, newsprint bundle, knife, and marker

• Deluxe Home Kit (5–8 Bedrooms) $625

Includes: 25 small boxes, 40 medium boxes, 30 large boxes, 5 wardrobe boxes, 5 dish boxes, 5 dish dividers, tape, tape dispenser, 2 bubble rolls, newsprint bundle, knife, and marker

Packing Tips

  • If you’re packing everything yourself, use colored packing labels or another method to clearly label each box.
  • Load heavier items into smaller boxes. Overloaded large boxes are best moved by two movers, one box at a time. These boxes have a greater chance of collapsing under their own weight and they are almost impossible to stack in the truck. All of this will slow down your move and increase your risk of damaged items. Fill up each box to the top and, if necessary, use plenty of packing paper to fill any remaining space.
  • Book boxes (1.5 cubic feet) are designed to hold heavy items such as books, papers, files, CDs, DVDs, record albums, canned food, and tools/hardware. Pack them tightly since these cartons often end up on or near the bottom when the truck is loaded.
  • 3-Cubes (3 cubic feet) are best used for clothing, small electronics, miscellaneous items from drawers and kitchen cabinets, small picture frames, shoes, and many other medium-weight items.
  • Large cartons (6.0 cubic feet) are great for bulky and semi-lightweight items such as bedding, pots and pans, sweaters, lampshades, etc.
  • Remember that it’s always better to err on the side of having more materials. You don’t want to find yourself short on packing supplies the day before you move!
  • Always invest in quality packing materials. If you cut corners with boxes, packing paper, and other supplies, you may have to spend much more replacing damaged items. All of the materials supplied by PNW Moving and Delivery have been tested for durability and consistency.

Ready for a Stress-Free Move?

No matter where you’re moving, the process can feel daunting and overwhelming when you start to consider how many items you need to pack. Between coordinating with utility providers, arranging to move into your new home, and safely transporting every item you own, it’s easy to let the prospect of moving get the best of you before you’ve even started.

At PNW Moving and Delivery, we understand that a move of any size is a massive undertaking and will do everything we can to reduce the weight on your shoulders. We’ll provide you with an accurate estimate, answer any questions you have, and make recommendations based on your budget and individual preferences. We put our clients first and will never pressure you into buying services or items you don’t need. You don’t have to take our word for it, though. Look through our reviews and see what other clients are saying about our moving services!
