Unpacking and Organizing services

Moving is exhausting enough without having to deal with taking things out of moving boxes, unwrapping items and even getting things where you want them to be. We can unpack everything and get your home organized or just provide some basic help – taking things out of boxes and unwrapping up to putting them away and removing all the packing materials.

Safekeeping for storage pods and other items

Sometimes you may want to store some items for a period of time until you decide what to do with them. You can trust us to make sure that anything you don’t want to even unpack will be kept safe until you want to have them delivered or even taken elsewhere.

We can provide convenient and safe warehousing space for our MobiSTOR moving pods or for any type of possessions. Our trained expert warehouse professionals will take safe care of any type of residential or commercial goods.


Quality Packing Supplies

Many people move using weak “buffer” material or boxes they already have, that may be years old and have been used many times. While this reduces cost, it’s not always what’s best for your belongings. Newspapers aren't as protective as bubble wrap, boxes break down and deteriorate over time, especially in a damp basement.

We use quality packing supplies and wrapping techniques to ensure that your possessions will be safe, no matter how far you move.We’ll bring these packaging supplies with us on-site and they are included in our packing services so you do not have to purchase any packaging materials yourself.

How much does it cost to hire professional packers?

The cost of hiring professional packers depends on a variety of factors.

  1. Volume of items to pack - How many things do you have or how many rooms do you need packed? The higher volume of goods, the more time it’ll take, the more crew members we may need, and the higher the cost
  2. Type of items being packed - Are there specialty items that need specific boxes? Fragile items like a chandelier or furniture with glass doors or shelving? We need to take extra care of these items so they do not break so we’ll spend extra time and supplies wrapping them properly.
  3. Packing and/or unpacking - Are we packing only or traveling to your next destination and unpacking as well? Obviously, helping on both sides of the move will be more costly than one or the other.

Packing Checklists and How To's

Packing is probably the most arduous task when moving from one place to the next and Dearman can help lighten your load by providing services such as wrapping items, boxing them, labeling, packing, and unpacking at your destination. If you are going to pack yourself, here are a few ideas for preparing your items and packing tips to help you get started:

Layer boxes with padding

It helps if you started packing by layering each box with household items like towels or blankets, newspapers, and even bubble wrap. This will help keep your possessions inside the box from breaking.

Pack “in-kind” items together.

Put like items in the same box so it is easier to find, figure out, and organize once you start unpacking.

Label boxes by Item and by Room

Label boxes according to their content and the room they will go into. This will help when you are unloading the truck, knowing which room to take the box into instead of bringing them all into the living room, for example.

Pack Essentials separately

Pack your essentials in a single box or two. Things like first aid kits, medications, paper plates and utensils, a change of clothes, and personal hygiene items should be easily accessible in your essentials box.

Avoid overfilling boxes

It is tempting to fill boxes to the brim when packing but they become harder to carry or and impossible stack them when they are overflowing. On top of being overly heavy, overfilled boxes that cannot close can easily dump out if you trip by accident, possibly causing more issues and damaging your belongings.

Our packing services are especially beneficial for those moving out of state as you can easily move ahead of time with a few essentials, get settled, and have your stuff moved after.
