Should I Use Professional Packers for My Move?


Should you hire the professional moving team at Bridgetown to pack your items or should you do it yourself?

Many customers ask us this question so we made your decision easier by detailing the disadvantages and benefits of both  in regards to four of our customer’s  most common concerns.


The safety of your items is usually both yours and the mover’s top priority. To properly protect your belongings from breaking or chipping, every type of item needs to be packed a different way. Our movers are experts when it comes to packing and they will ensure that every item is secured properly.

However, if you have moved frequently in your life, you may know your items better than us. You will have more privacy and personal control over their safety if you pack your valuables yourself.


Moving day can sneak up on even the most organized person. If you find that this is the case for you, make sure to give us a call before your move so that the movers will come prepared to assist you with last minute packing. Our movers are efficient and happy to box up and securely wrap your items much faster than you would be able to do alone.

If you are more concerned about the actual moving day going by as quickly as possible, then it is best to have everything boxed up, disassembled, and ready to go before the movers arrive. Then you will spend less of your day supervising movers and instead have more time the day of the move to relax in your new home.


We use high quality boxes and packing materials to ensure that the move goes smoothly. For that reason, the price you pay for our materials will be higher than if you had simply searched for free boxes at the local grocery store. However, new boxes will be sturdier and less likely to break and damage your items than used boxes.


For many people, staying under budget is their biggest concern. Ultimately, you can lower your moving bill by packing your items yourself and with your own materials. However, the added stress, personal time, and the increased possibility of broken items may not be worth the money you save.


Luckily, you always have the option to play it safe by asking the team at Bridgetown Moving & Storage to pack for you. Simply let the office know that you are interested in packing services while scheduling your move and we will be happy to answer your questions and go over the details.
