Packing Services

If you choose to use All Canada Moving to move your home, we highly recommend that you take advantage of our packing service. Our packers are trained professionals. We have the right packing tools to pack any household item and the expert knowledge for packing any item from porcelain to electronics to pianos. We will ensure that all your items are safely secured in the boxes before loading them on the truck.

If you have a tight moving budget, you may choose to do the packing yourself and simply have us do the moving. If you decide to do this, please review the packing tips section for packing advice. Although All Canada Moving will happily accommodate this option, we must stress that we cannot be responsible for damage caused to items that are self packed.

Besides the packing itself, our packing service includes the boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape and other tools needed to secure your belongings. When discussing your moving details, we will also discuss the best time to do your packing (usually the week before your move).

Our home packing service is charged by the hour. It may be in your best interest to prepare your items for packing before we arrive so that we can make efficient use of your time. For more information on packing costs, please review our estimates section.
