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.

Unpacking 40ft Shipping Container


Wickham NSW, Australia

12th Nov 2021

Require unpacking of 40ft shipping container at warehouse. Must have minimum 2 people, however, from previous experience 3 people is highly recommended. The container holds cushion inserts and will arrive as per the attached photo. Ideally the container is unloaded within 1 and 1/2 hours to avoid excess charges, however, you then have as much time as needed to move the goods into our warehouse. This will be an ongoing monthly job if you are interested (we have recently just lost our regular removalist). Currently the container is scheduled for unpack at Wickham on Wednesday 17th Nov. We will provide of time the day before but it will be AM. Budget is $450 for the job total (regardless of how long it takes). Previous experience this has taken 3 people, 3 hours to complete the job, so averaging $50 per hour each. Please note the boxes are heavy so must be able to manage this. Forklift and trolley available for use. Company name: Eadie Lifestyle
