One of the things people dread most about moving is having to pack up all their possessions in an efficient and organized manner so they are ready to go when the truck pulls up to their house on moving day. That’s part of the reason why Scott’s Oceana Moving experts offer professional packing, assembly, and disassembly services in addition to our residential and commercial moving services. As moving specialists, we know how stressful and tedious packing can be, and we want to take that burden off you so your move goes as smoothly as possible. Here are some reasons why hiring a professional packing service for your next move is a good idea.

It Relieves Stress

Many people who are preparing to move find themselves in a time crunch during the last week leading up to their moving day, which can make moving an incredibly stressful experience — especially for procrastinators. Much like any other chore, people tend to overestimate the amount of time they have and put off their packing for as long as they possibly can. But, unlike procrastinating on a term paper, spring cleaning projects, or going to the gym, something as major and life-changing as relocating to a different city, state, or country is nothing to take lightly.

That being said, we know as well as anyone just how tempting it is to put off packing until the last minute, and we would be happy to step in and take the trouble off your hands. You’ll be surprised how much moving stress comes from the packing process, so with our help, you’ll be able to approach the move with far less anxiety and unnecessary stress than you’d have if you chose to go it alone.

It Makes Letting Go Easier

In all our years of providing packing services, we have developed a sense for how emotional and nostalgic moving can be. For many people, moving means leaving the house they grew up in, raised a family in, or built from scratch with their own two hands. In many cases, moving is not a choice, but rather a byproduct of getting a new job on the other side of the country or running into financial problems and needing to downsize.

Whatever the case may be, leaving fond memories and milestones behind is a difficult thing for many people to come to terms with, and for that reason, hiring a professional packer to pack away your sentimental items can greatly ease the process. That way, you can focus on other aspects of letting go, like spending time with loved ones at your favorite nearby parks, restaurants, shops, and natural areas. Often, people need closure before leaving their old house, and leaving the packing to us is a great way to avoid nostalgic hang-ups and get out of the house to enjoy your surroundings for the last time.

It Frees up Your Time

In addition to relieving last-minute packing stress and making it easier to let go of your current home, hiring a professional packing service will also free up a great deal of your time. As previously mentioned, your last few days in your old house should not be spent in a frantic packing binge. Rather, you should focus on enjoying these last hours with your family and friends doing the things you love. Or, if you have all the closure you need and are ready to get going, having a professional take care of the packing allows you to focus on more important aspects of moving, like completing paperwork, payments, and other legal obligations.
