If you’re of the contention that packing is not a job for movers, then you need to read this, because letting your moving company pack your belongings for you may very well be the best decision you make for your entire move...

Let’s dive into why:

1. Your mover really do know what they’re doing.

Moving professionals are ogres. Not even close. In fact, they’re highly skilled and well-trained professionals who understand exactly how to transition your belongings without damaging them.

At Bekins of South Florida, our movers have years of experience and an arsenal of effective techniques that you average moving customer simply wouldn’t know.

2. One word: Overseas.

Customs official encourage families and businesses transitioning overseas to hire professional movers and packers to assist them through the process. You really can’t replace the knowledge and expertise of an experienced packing professional when “how you pack” is the name of the game.

3. Insurance purposes...

There’s a strong chance that your moving insurance doesn’t cover boxes that you packed by yourself, which makes sense considering that you may have unknowingly compromised the safety of your belongings by packing them improperly.

4. No Corner cutting...

Let’s face it, when you’re tired, hungry and stressed out, you’re likely to start cutting some corners – you know: packing things sloppily; dangerously...

Professionally wouldn’t do that – no way, no how. They’re there to deliver results, not broken china.

5. Stay Organized!

Why do you think customs recommends moving internationally under the direction of a professional moving company – because it’ll help you stay organized! There’s a lot to do during a move... it’s a ton of work. Movers will help put everything in perspective for you...

6. Everybody loves something fragile...
