Wrapping Your Fragile Objects
Oftentimes, packing up the kitchen is one of the most delicate parts of the process. We will begin by thoroughly wrapping all fragile kitchen items and making sure that they’re secured.
Making sure that boxes are not overpacked is vital in this stage of the process, as we want to ensure that the weight of objects do not impact any other objects underneath them.
We make use of packing paper to provide a protective barrier between objects and place them snugly in boxes, before taping and securing them.
Transporting Glass Items
We take great care to make sure that any glass items are safely transported during your move. Our professional packers come armed with all of the supplies needed to safely pack and prepare glass objects such as mirrors for transportation.

It’s not always obvious just how much space clothing takes up until it’s time to empty out the closet!
We have ample materials required for packing up a wardrobe, whether you want to keep your clothing on the hangers or not. Streamlining the packing process is what our packing services are all about.
Pianos are fully within our capabilities for a move. We take special care for these elegant instruments to ensure their safe travel to their new home.
Organizing Your Boxes
After packing your boxes up, our professional Seattle packers will help organize your boxes in an intuitive fashion for pick-up by the moving team.
We’ll be able to help you choose an organization style that makes the most sense for you. Perhaps you want to have all of your “garage” boxes sitting in the front, with your “living room” boxes in the back.
Taking time to apply descriptive labels for your boxes will be a huge advantage for you when it comes time to unpack.
Seattle Packing Company
Our packing services in Seattle are all engineered around your convenience. If you have a large move, we will typically perform our packing about one to two days ahead of schedule.
If the move is a smaller operation with a limited scope, it’s possible for us to schedule out your packing for the same day as the move.
We strive to provide our customers with the most flexible options possible for their move.
If you’re looking to streamline the process even further or save money on the cost of your move, it’s also possible to do some of your own packing ahead of time!
