    Packing Service?

    Packing Service? 19th Apr 17 at 11:11 AM
    I've had a removal quote and an additional quote for a 'packing' service. I'd never heard of it but a Google search shows many forum threads reccommending it! Just wondered what those on MSE thought? Worth the money?

    It's an additional £400. They come the day before and pack everything - not sure about unpacking, just clarifying this with the company.

    For what it's worth I don't think I'd normally consider it but we have a 1y and 3y old

    Main things I'd suggest taking care of before the packers arrive is

    1. Keep aside things you want handy on move day
    - tea / coffee / sugar / kettle / minimal crockery
    - essential food / medicines
    - clothes for the day
    - phones, chargers
    - cleaning equipment

    2. Throw out rubbish
    Packers will often blindly pack everything, so have a clear out before they come and take out the bins & recycling, so you don't have unwanted items making it to your nice new home.

    For packing, some movers may charge separately. Based number of handymens and packing material they will charge. The prize may vary based on movers also.
