Simi Valley Movers considers packing and crating the most important part of moving process. The larger project - the higher importance of professional protection of valuable shipment.
Therefore our company hires and trains packers with many years of experience in working on projects involving packing and crating regular and special, over sized, heavy and bulky articles. We have developed a special way of utilizing precise usage of space and volume of the box or any other carton or wooden container which is essential to the eventual safety of its content.
Packing/Crating services cost consists of combination of hourly rate, number of packers, time and materials used in the process of securing shipment. The cost varies depending on how much packing of items was done by the customer. Some items: books, linens, tools and other non-breakable may be packed by customers to control the cost. However, all expensive electronics, appliances, china, glass furniture, mirrors, crystal, art and collectibles must be done by professionals.
Proper packing by a trained packer using specially designed cartons and materials is crucial to a safe move. Packers should be scheduled a day or to prior to the move day. However, customers that decide to pack themselves, it is never too soon to start. While packing yourself may save money, moving insurance will normally will not take liability to damages to items that you packed yourself.
Be present when your goods are packed. An inventory of your goods will be made (for long distance relocations or goods going into movers warehouse). It is very important to resolve any disagreements regarding the conditions of the items (scratches, necks, dents, etc.) prior to signing inventory form. Our movers will make sure that all items are tagged and properly numbered. Customers must create a list of items of extra ordinary value (over $100/lb.). Our movers can service or disconnect some of the appliances for customers if request has been made prior to move day.
