Packers and Movers

Sometimes packing is the most overwhelming part of the move. Something might suffer damage in transit, you might not be able to fit everything in one trip, and it’s going to be just as difficult unpacking and knowing where everything is once you arrive at your new place.

Packing services can make all of that stress disappear for you. A Tasker will be able to help you evaluate what sorts of boxes or equipment you’ll need to move your belongings and then prepare them for safe transport. 

That can mean stacking plates vertically instead of horizontally, fitting the maximum number of books in a box, wrapping dressers so that the drawers are secured, and rolling out furniture without leaving so much as a scratch on your floor.

Protect your belongings and get the move done in one trip!

Frequently asked questions

Taskers who provide packing services will help you prepare for your move. This might include figuring out what sorts of boxes you need, how to best organize and label your belongings, how to pack things safely and efficiently, and of course the luxury of having someone pack everything for you. Expect that everything will be packed for protection, clearly labeled, and ready to go in the truck.

Rates for packing and moving can vary but Taskers offer very competitive rates starting at $15-20 per hour for packing services. Moving rates may differ--some Taskers specialize in only packing, some only moving, and some both!

How long it takes for packing services depends on the amount of belongings, but for a benchmark, expect it to take two people 4-6 hours to pack for every 1,000 square feet in your home.

 

They certainly can! Talk to your Tasker about their availability to help you unpack--you might also consider hiring a local Tasker near your new home. It’s a great way to start meeting your new neighbors! 

 

Generally speaking weekdays Monday-Thursday are not as busy as weekends in terms of traffic, street activity, and Tasker availability for moving. That said, you can hire a Tasker any day of the week, so the best days of the week to move are the ones that are most convenient for you!

 

It’s usually best to start packing 2-3 weeks before your move date. Taskers are usually available for same-day services so you can hire and schedule a Tasker at your convenience. If you have a small or local move, consider hiring a local mover for same-day services.
