Residential Packing & Crating
Peasley Transfer & Storage offers our customers a wide variety of packing and crating services to best meet their needs. These services range from packing all household goods (a "full pack") to packing only select belongings of a delicate, sentimental, or highly valuable nature ("fragiles only pack"). A major cause of moving-related stress is whether your possessions will arrive at their final destination intact and without damage. Utilizing Peasley Transfer's professional packing services will ensure that your belongings are properly handled and packed for transporting, greatly reducing your concerns about this aspect of the moving process.
When Peasley Transfer performs a full pack, we take responsibility for ensuring that all your belongings are properly prepared for a safe move. Our trained professional packers use the highest quality packing materials and supplies available, ensuring that your belongings are well protected and the packing process is as efficient as possible. We wrap dishes and glassware in clean newsprint and then they are densely packed into special double-walled dishpack containers. The key to avoiding damage is packing densely so that the movement of packed items in the box is prevented.
Specialized attention is given to large mirrors and hanging artwork. Such items are properly wrapped in paper pads and carefully placed in specialized mirror packs which are adjustable to accommodate a wide range of dimensions while providing multiple layers of protection. Peasley Transfer employs a wide range of carton types and sizes to best accommodate your belongings. These range from large cartons for bulky light-weight items such as pillows and bedding to small cartons for heavier items such as books. We also provide wardrobe cartons with bars for hanging clothing directly from your closets. Using cartons of the proper size and structure ensures that your items are properly protected for transit and serve to inform the moving crew of the contents for proper handling and loading.
Fragiles Only or Partial Pack
There are circumstances in which a customer may elect to have Peasley Transfer perform a partial pack instead of a full pack. For example, as the cost of a move is based on time and materials, some customers choose to save money by packing some or all of their belongings themselves. In such cases, Peasley Transfer can provide professional packing of those items that are either fragile, difficult to pack, or will require more time than the customer has available. When it comes to packing fragile items such as glassware, fine china, lamps and mirrors, we have the proper materials, methods, and experience to set your mind at ease.
Whether you are making a local move, interstate move, or international move, our goal is to take the necessary steps to ensure the safe transportation of your highly valuable artwork, specialized furniture, and other oversized and valuable belongings. With this in mind, there are circumstances where the best means of protection is to pack such items in specially constructed crates or wood boxes. Several examples include; slate pool tables, marble or glass table tops, oversized or priceless artwork, fragile antiques, and chandeliers. Peasley Transfer has the expertise to construct customized wooden crates and boxes to accommodate any item requiring this enhanced level of protection. Your Peasley Transfer Relocation Consultant will identify and discuss any crating needs during your free, no obligation estimate appointment.
