At 1st Choice Moving & Storage Ltd., we know that a proper pack job is the most important part of a move. We have experienced packers to do an excellent pack job for you.
We also do “partial pack” in which you pack pretty much your entire home and we come in and pack fragiles such as glassware, china, ornaments, paintings and more. Sometimes, it's a load off for you to have experienced packers come in for the fragile items.
If you choose to pack the items yourself, the internet has a lot of information and instructions to help you do a fine packing job and you do save good money packing it all yourself. The only downside to do-it-yourself packing is that movers insurance will not cover items that you packed unless there is obvious damage to the box. But if you do a good pack job, you won't have any damage.
Since packing is so important, it is imperative to use proper packing materials. The cost of moving boxes is quite high; $3 to $6 per regular box and $8 to $16 per specialty box, such as china or clothing. Check with us, as we can give you a much lower price on moving boxes.
Some items such as large glass table tops, ornaments, statues, antiques and artwork need more protection. We build the best customized crates for fragile items.
