You may be wondering if your movers will move items that are not in boxes. The answer to this question is yes, but there may be an additional fee for doing so. Most movers are happy to move any item that you need moved, as long as it is moved safely and you agree to sign a waiver.
When you’re thinking about whether an item needs to be packed, consider its size and weight. If it can fit inside one carton without being too bulky or weighing down on the sides then chances are that packing will take less time than boxing! In addition to saving money by leaving some items unboxed (especially things like fragile glassware), there’s another reason why paying extra for packaging is worth every penny: by leaving some items unboxed, you save on space and avoid having to rent an extra truck.
Many factors are taken into account when movers determine whether or not your belongings should be packed or boxed. Is it fragile? Does it need protection from the elements? Are there any sharp edges? All of these questions factor into whether or not the mover will pack certain items for you. If they do decide to move an item that’s unpacked, expect to see a nominal price increase on your final bill at the end of the move. Simply put, this is just because packing something takes time and materials. And remember: if using boxes would damage your item in any way (for example, by crushing it), moving professionals will inform you of this and offer other options for moving your item.
When should you pack before moving? If you’re concerned about security, keep in mind that an unpacked item is more vulnerable than one that has been packed into a box and taped up tight. Be sure to lock away personal information such as bank statements and tax returns no matter the state of your items. This will help protect yourself against fraud and identity theft should any of these items be lost or stolen while in transit; we recommend using a secure filing cabinet (which can also be moved by movers) or storage facility to store these documents if they cannot easily fit into a box with everything else you’re packing for the move .
