Packing/Unpacking Services

Tuck away your items safe and sound with Overland Van Lines‘ packing/unpacking service!

The most important part of your move!

Packing seems like the easiest job when moving. But that’s not really true. Packing requires the right amount of boxes, careful planning and into-the-box thinking when it comes to moving homes and offices.

How are we able to help you:

  • Get a pro mover to pack your items and furniture with our packing service.
  • If your new home is still not quite ready, get full advantage of our Storage or Storage in Transit options.
  • Need to move quickly? Our express delivery service is designed just for that.
  • Having questions before, during or after your move is quite common, so we have our dedicated customer service agents ready to answer them 24/7.
  • All of our movers are professionally trained and certified with years of experience guaranteeing your move will be stress-free.

Why is packing not that simple?

Packing is a time consuming job and when done without a plan becomes a disaster when the time to unpack comes.

Our movers are skilled and know how to professionally pack and wrap your furniture and items fast and safe, without you lifting a finger. We strongly recommend using our packing service to ensure your possessions arrive undamaged.

How much boxes do you need?

Depends on the amount and size of your items. An average 2 bedroom apartment usually needs between 35 and 50 boxes of various sizes. In order to tell you how much and what boxes you would need we suggest you request a free on-site estimate. Our estimator will calculate the approximate number of boxes you’ll need to pack before the move.
