How To Convince Your Busy Spouse That Packing Services Can Save Your Move

When my youngest child moved out, I was left living in a large home by myself. Weekend visits from the grandchildren only filled the space part of the time. The home became more of a burden as each day passed. It was not until I was working with my real estate agent to sell my home and find a smaller home did I realize that there were so many others in the same position. I created this blog to help other empty nesters explore their options for downsizing and to provide guidance on finding a new home that fits in more with their lifestyle.

How To Convince Your Busy Spouse That Packing Services Can Save Your Move

If you and your spouse both have full, busy lives, an upcoming move might feel daunting. Even if you are set to hire movers for the day of your move, packing and unpacking can still take up a lot of time and energy. Here are points you can use to convince your spouse that packing services can be just the help you need to get through your move.

1. Time is Money

If you and your spouse are both really busy or tend to procrastinate, you might not get around to packing on your down time. If you end up having to take time off of work for last minute packing, the process will end up costing you money anyways. You might as well hire on professional packers to come in and do the tedious packing for you.

2. Professional Packers Won't Cause as Much Damage

Unless you move all of the time, most people aren't in the business of organizing and packing up boxes for a move. You and your spouse might not be the most proficient at wrapping up every delicate household item or might over-pack heavy boxes full of books or dishwares. Leave this to the professionals that understand the science of packing up a household efficiently and safely.

3. Packing Supplies can be Provided

Many times, packing services can come equipped with their own supplies for your move. This includes boxes, packing tape, wardrobe boxes, bubble wrap, and other supplies to keep your smaller items secured. You might underestimate how many boxes you'll need or you might realize that old newspapers aren't effective for wrapping up every item. Let packers bring the right supplies that are tailor-made for your move.

4. Save Your Energy on Your New Home

The last thing you want is to finally get to your new home and be too tired to unpack and settle in. If you are moving into a home that might need some revamping before move in, it might make more sense for you and your spouse to spend time cleaning carpets and painting walls so that your new space is ready. If you can tackle the needs of your new home before and after move in, professional movers can take care of getting your things ready to go.

If your spouse has a DIY spirit, there are a few things you can run by them when it comes to getting assistance for packing. If you don't want to get stuck packing up the bulk of your home, talk to your spouse about forgoing packing yourselves and leaving this to the professionals instead.
