What do packing and moving services include?

Packing and moving services cover the entire process of packing your furniture, appliances, and other items either for moving purposes or for general organisation. If you're planning on decluttering your space and need help arranging your items for donation, disposal, or future use, you can hire professional packers from Airtasker to help you out! 

Whether you're moving out or simply need to clear space in your home or office, you can find packers and movers near you who can transport your items to your new place, a storage facility, or virtually anywhere you like. Here's what to expect when you book packing services through us:

Assessment of furniture and other Items

Proper packing is crucial to protect your belongings and other valuables either for transit or for storage. Once your packer arrives at your location, they first assess your packing needs. You can choose to have all furniture and appliances in your home professionally packed or only select rooms or items. In some cases, you may need to get help in disassembling your furniture for packing or ask for complete furniture removal and disposal if you no longer want to keep your old furniture pieces. 

Have some office rubbish or a garage full of stuff ready to go? You can also book a rubbish removal service to help you get rid of items you don't want to store or bring with you when moving.

Gathering of packing materials

After assessing your furniture and other items to be packed, your packing professional gathers the necessary packing supplies and materials. This includes boxes of different sizes, rolls of tape and bubble wrap, heavy markers, sticker labels, scissors and cutters, and so on. If you have fragile furniture such as mirrors, antiques, or special paintings, our expert packers can take note of them and get the proper packing supplies needed such as speciality crates, furniture pads, and packing peanuts.

Packing and unpacking of items

Once your packer has gathered all the supplies, they are ready to get packing! Rugs and carpets are rolled carefully and wrapped securely, glass and crystal furniture are individually padded, or bubble-wrapped, and all boxes and packing cartons are sealed from top to bottom, on all sides to prevent any damage. They are then loaded into a moving van or vehicle ready to be transported to your new place or a storage facility. 

While packing your items, some mess and clutter can be unavoidable. You can book an end of lease cleaning service to keep your old space sparkling clean and looking new. On the other hand, if you're the one moving in, you can also hire moving-in cleaners to help clean your space, unpack your items, and make settling into your new home a little easier.

Need urgent assistance with packing/clearing property for moving.


Hackett ACT, Australia

16th Jan 2024

We have removalists coming tomorrow and the place is far from ready. Need someone kind and non-judgmental to help my elderly Mum get things in boxes and make space. There has been a lot of clutter over many years and she is overwhelmed, exhausted and embarrassed. I'm next door and may also need a hand with shifting a few things later as I'm currently on one foot and it's almost impossible to carry things from room to room on crutches. It's also why I can't help Mum myself. If anyone is available at any time today or this evening to help pack books, clear space for removalists and keep spirits high, we would be so grateful and relieved. Happy to pay an hourly rate. $240 is completely negotiable depending on hours available etc. We will also need rubbish removal which could tie in with this task or be a separate job. Not yet sure how much there will be to remove but rough quotes welcome. - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 17 January 2024
