Moving - Is it Worth Paying for Packing

If you’ve ever moved from one place to another, and done your own packing, you know how much work and stress packing to move can be. There is so much involved leading up to the moving day. Then, you get into your new home, and you’re excited. Still, the task of having to unbox everything now and put it all away replaces excitement with overwhelm.

You may be wondering, is it worth paying for packing? And the answer is, it depends. Let’s examine some reasons it might be a good idea and worth the cost to have someone else do the packing for you.

Packing to Move – Time Savings

One of the most significant advantages of having someone else do the packing is the amount of time you’ll save. You never really know how much stuff you actually have until you start packing it up. You go in with the best of intentions, and pretty soon, you’re pulling your hair out in frustration because you have no idea how you have so much stuff?!

The hours can tick by quickly, and when you take a look around, it doesn’t seem like you’ve made much progress. Imagine having someone else doing the packing for you, saving you all those lost hours, stress, and frustration.

Packing to Move – Cost Savings

Wait a minute, how does paying someone else to pack instead of packing to move yourself for your move save you money? Well, think of all the things you now won’t have to worry about with someone else handling the packing:

  • Purchasing moving supplies
  • Gas costs to go back to the store when you inevitably forget something
  • Paying your friends and family in pizza to entice them to help out
  • The time it would take for you to do it 

Yes, it costs money to pay someone else to do the work for you. But if you factor in the cost of materials, gas driving back and forth, food and drinks to pay others to help; and most importantly, hours you could be doing something else, you might find that paying a moving company could actually save you money.

Consider this: take your hourly wage at work and multiply that by the number of hours it would take to pack up your entire home (it always takes longer than you think). Now, once you get a quote with Freedom Moving, divide the total by your hourly wage to see how many hours you’d have to work to pay for the move.
