As part of creating your move plan, your Stevens representative will discuss your options for packing those items you plan to move. You may choose to have Stevens pack all of your goods, or you may choose to do some of your own packing, relying on the experts at Stevens to pack only your hard-to-pack, fragile or meaningful items. We’ll work to create a pack plan that makes the most sense for you.
In addition to packing services, Stevens also offers similar unpacking services with each move we undertake. You may choose to have a few boxes unpacked, or you may choose to have them all unpacked. Please contact your Stevens representative for details on both packing and unpacking services and to discuss the level of moving coverage that’s best for you.
Benefits of Using Stevens
With Stevens, you get:
- Professionally trained and certified packing experts
- Specialty boxes and crating services
- High-quality materials
- Peace of mind
If you decide to pack your own belongings, the responsibility of damage shifts from Stevens to you. With that in mind, you may want to let Stevens pack the more fragile items to assure that your items are delivered safely.
What To Expect
If you choose to have Stevens pack all of your items, you can expect quality and professionalism, as well as efficiency and special care. Our packing crews are trained and ready to go—making sure you don’t have to lift a finger. You can take it easy, knowing that the packers will know which boxes should be used, which items should be wrapped, which items should be packed together and so on. Boxes will be labeled according to contents and which room they belong in and will also be marked on inventory paperwork. Rest assured that our crews will work diligently to keep your home and furniture safe while packing for the move. We take preventative measures to keep your home and belongings in pristine condition. We also offer Home Protection Kits as an extra precautionary measure.
What NOT To Pack
The packing process can be overwhelming and stressful. If you know what not to pack, you’ll save yourself some possible frustration down the line. Some items are best transported by you and should be kept with you while you’re en route to your final destination. A typical rule of thumb is that items you will need in the near future, items that have sentimental value and are irreplaceable, and items of extraordinary value should be kept with you. If you can, keep these items in the trunk of your car and take them with you to your destination. Some examples of these items include:
- Jewelry, watches, cash or other valuables
- Important paperwork or necessary work items
- Items that are beyond monetary value and irreplaceable to you
Please keep in mind that accidents do happen; it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you feel that an item cannot be replaced, keep it in your care, and take it with you.
Items that are not meant to be packed should either be out of sight of the crew or clearly marked in some way. A good way to mark these items could be colored tape or sticky notes. Be sure to let the entire crew know that items marked in this way should not be packed.
If you opt to have our crews unpack for you, they will go the extra mile to help you transition into your new home as smoothly as possible. The crews will carry boxes to the room that you designate and unload the boxes onto the nearest flat surface. Unpacking can take a lot of time and effort; some people choose to take the time to do it themselves, and others want to get the process over with as quickly as possible. Let us know what works for you. An added benefit to having Stevens unpack for you is that the crew can take the empty boxes back with them when they leave. That way, they aren’t cluttering your home, and you don’t have to dispose of them yourself.
