At Cassidy’s you can have us pack as much or as little as you want.
We offer a wide variety of services with options for everyone. Whether you’re on a tight budget, are too busy to handle packing, or somewhere in between, we have a solution for you.
Partial Packing Services
For people who want to save money or who want to pack some fragile items themselves, we offer partial packing. It’s all up to you.
With this option, you do all the packing yourself.
Then we take care of the heavy lifting: we move your belongings into the truck, drive to your new home, and move your belongings back out and into your new home.
If you need help unpacking, we can offer that option. While we don’t put things away in cupboards and closets or hang your artwork, we can take care of the annoying work of opening boxes, getting things unwrapped, and removal of the packaging.
Your belongings are placed carefully on tables, countertops or other handy surfaces. All you have to do is place everything where you want it.
One of the things people need to do before moving is disassemble things that are too large to go through doorways or around twisting stairwells.
Most of our customers are happy to do this themselves, but if you need help with disassembly we can provide it on request. We charge by the hour for this, and we can include things like:
- Wall units and bookcases
- Dining room tables
- Small weight benches
- Work benches
Reassembly of anything you hire us to disassemble is included. We’ll even arrange furniture items where you want them (just once though – we can’t reposition furniture multiple times).
For liability reasons, we cannot disassemble large multi-station exercise machines for you.
If you have especially valuable items, we may recommend extra packing materials or the use of wooden crates. This will help protect items that are heavy but fragile like:
- Fragile sculptures
- Wine collections
- Other collectibles
We’ll advise you if we think an item should go in a wooden crate with extra padding, or you can request.
If you have valuable items, please let us know and be sure to discuss extra insurance. Anything valued at $4,999 and under is covered, but for anything $5,000 and over you need an appraisal.
Sorry, we cannot move pianos. Moving pianos is a specialist task – please ask us for a referral.
All Boxes Are Not Created Equal
We only use thick-walled, sturdy cardboard boxes that stack well without collapsing. Where needed we also use:
- China cartons with double-thickness walls and reinforced corners. These keep their shape even when loaded with heavy but fragile dishware.
- Small, easy-to-use boxes for heavy items like books.
- Wardrobe boxes that have hanger bars to prevent wrinkling.
- Mirror/framed artwork cartons that telescope to the right size.
- We wrap all soft furniture in professional-grade cling wrap.
Bubble wrap can be included, but does cost extra. We will advise you if we think it’s a good idea to use it on some of your belongings.
Recycled Boxes Option
When we have them, you can use recycled boxes to save money and the environment. All of our recycled boxes are clean.
For sanitary reasons, we do not reuse plastic wrap used on mattresses and other upholstered furniture. We dispose of it at a recycling facility.
Just want to buy boxes from us and pack yourself? That’s OK too!
