Labor vs Packing: What's the Difference?


Labor-only moving services offer assistance with the physical aspects of moving without providing a truck or transportation. This type of service typically involves loading and unloading belongings, furniture assembly and disassembly, packing and unpacking, and other related tasks. Customers can hire labor-only movers to help with various aspects of their relocation, such as loading a rental truck, rearranging furniture within a home, or assisting with a partial move. This option allows individuals to handle the transportation aspect themselves while still receiving professional help with the heavy lifting and logistical aspects of moving.   

Packing / Prepping 

Packing services usually also involve labor, but the key difference is that packing involves special materials which require more planning and communication before our team arrives. When packing is necessary, you should reach out at least one week before the service is required. Packing materials come in many shapes and sizes, which means we cant always have them on hand at any moment. With proper planning, packing and prepping your items can be easy and provide you peace of mind on long distance journeys!

Why Hire Movers for Labor?

Hiring movers for packing and labor can provide numerous benefits that make the moving process smoother and less stressful. Firstly, professional movers are experienced and skilled in efficiently and securely packing belongings, ensuring that items are properly protected during transit. This can reduce the risk of damage or breakage during the move, saving both time and money on potential repairs or replacements.

Additionally, movers can significantly lighten the physical burden of moving by handling the heavy lifting and loading of furniture and boxes. This helps prevent injuries and strain on the individual or family moving, allowing them to focus on other important aspects of the relocation process. Moreover, hiring movers for labor ensures a more organized and systematic approach to packing and moving, as they have the expertise to optimize space and packing arrangements, making the most efficient use of available resources such as boxes and packing materials. Overall, enlisting professional movers for packing and labor can streamline the moving process, reduce stress, and provide peace of mind knowing that belongings are in capable hands.
