Packing Only

Our San Jose packers know just what you need - a professional organizer. Preparing and organizing everything for your upcoming move is what we do best.


Packing on your own - or with professionals?

There really is no perfect answer. It all comes down to your personal preferences.

For instance, someone might be extremely private and would rather spend weeks packing than having strangers go through their belongings.

Others might be so busy - they simply don’t care and just want to get it over with.

Packing on your own is great if you want control over the entire process, to set your own pace and handle it in the exact manner you’ve envisioned it. The downside is that you’re not a professional, your items may get damaged during the move and you’re losing a lot of time you could spend enjoying your old home.

Professionals, on the other hand, are very quick, to the point and cautious with your items. They know how to efficiently use supplies, make the best of them and save you a lot of time and stress. The downside is that you won’t have much say in how the process is handled.

How to find packers in San Jose?

Start by searching for “packers near me” or “packers and movers near me”, to find some suggestions. Call different companies around and check their experience, if they have trained and background checked packers, and of course, compare pricing.

Ask the companies you are calling about the exact fees you will be charged. When looking for packing services, there are a lot of small expenses your packers and movers might not mention but can seriously hurt your budget. Make sure to be transparent and straightforward with your questions.

Common packing mistakes

1 Heavy items, large boxes

Always pack your heavy items separately, in the smallest possible boxes. Who wants to carry large and heavy boxes?

2 Not sealing
your boxes

A lot of people don’t realize how important it is to seal your boxes perfectly. You don’t want the contents to fly around the truck during transport, or have your boxes fall apart while carrying them.

3 Not enough

You can never go overboard with packing peanuts, styrofoam, wrapping paper, and bubble wrap. Your breakables need protection!

4 Books in medium or large boxes

Books are heavy when stacked - use small boxes for them.
