About this service

Moving between homes can be tedious. Packing takes a lot of time and might damage your belongings if you’re not careful. Hiring a service saves time and lets you focus on other aspects related to moving. Similarly, getting a professional unpacker to help out with the boxes after the move is a matter of convenience for most homeowners. Pros may be able to finish fully unpacking all of your items in 12 hours or less. In most cases, they will also haul away the materials.

Professionals can provide boxes (for a fee) or use the boxes that you provide. Most of the time, these packing professionals can also help with furniture assembly, loading and unloading items, furniture moving and heavy lifting. If you’re looking for some help packing and unpacking, take a load off and book a service on Discontract.

Packing and Unpacking Cost

Hiring a packing service can make your move faster and smoother. These people are professionals and have experience in packing and moving many different types of items. Various factors affect the cost of packing services, including whether the moving boxes are provided or not, hourly rates, size of home or office, and if there are specialty items that need to be treated differently.

Packing pros on Discontract charge by the hour. Therefore, the more items to pack, the higher the overall cost for services. If the packing service provides the boxes, the overall cost of the job will increase.

Packing materials can make up more than half the total price. The amount you'll pay depends on the size of your home and type of supplies you need. For low cost moving boxes, ask friends, family or nearby stores for extra supplies. Make sure that the materials are in good condition before you use them.

Most professional packers will also disassemble or reassemble basic furniture as part of the service. You may need to pay for an extra hour or two if you want them to take down or put together complicated pieces, such as cribs, TV mount or other electronics.


Some contractors may charge a travel fee when packing services are provided separately from moving services. This typically applies only if the job site is outside of the standard service range and covers the packer’s time and transportation expenses getting to and from the job site.

Cost to Pack Specialty Items

Delicate items such as antiques, glass, and artwork may need to be placed in custom crates. Extra services such as this will generally raise the overall cost of the packing or unpacking.

Benefits of Professional Packing Services

When you hire a professional packing service, you can rest assured that they have experience in handling fragile, heavy and special care items. Your professional packers have expertise in wrapping and packing your fragile/special care household items with the utmost care ensuring everything reaches your new home or office safely and without a hitch.

When you hire a highly trained professional packer, they will arrive at a designated time with all the necessary packing materials (such as cardboard boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap and packing tape), unless you provide them yourself. They will get the job done efficiently, in a minimal amount of time. Packing pros will also know what problems commonly arise and how to pack and transport effectively to minimize these problems during your move. Using a professional packer can also reduce the number of boxes used, meaning fewer boxes to be unpacked upon arrival to your new home and more time for you!

In addition, professional packers have been trained on how to properly lift and carry your large furniture and boxes which will eliminate any potential harm caused when moving these yourself. Besides, in the unlikely case of an accident, we’ve got you covered: when booking a service through Discontract, your task is automatically insured with a public liability insurance.

If you’re worried about making time for this task or have safety concerns, hiring a pro is often worth the money. When you’re ready to explore packing services near you, start by comparing hourly rates of pros near you.

Save Money on Packing Services

Hiring a professional packing service doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are some ways to save money on packing services costs:

Buy your own boxes: Plan to buy your own boxes (or source some free ones!). If you provide your own, you eliminate the need to purchase them from the professional packing specialist.

Get rid of stuff: It doesn’t make sense to pack and move items that you’re just going to get rid of. Take stock of your belongings and get rid of stuff that doesn’t need to make the move.

Pack some things yourself: Save some dough by packing up some of your items yourself. If you save only the items that are particularly heavy, fragile, or difficult to move for the professional packing contractor, you’ll spend less than if they were to pack your entire home or office!
