Another great Question!
Thanks for your great question. Different moving companies have different methods for charging their customers for packing contents (dishes, lamps, mirrors, pictures, linens, books, etc.) into boxes and containers...
Some customers are miffed by the cost to have the mover pack boxes, but what these customers may not realize is that when the mover packs a box the mover becomes responsible for damage to the contents of the mover packed box (but only responsible according to the type of insurance the customer has purchased from the mover). Alternatively, if the customer packs the box -- and the contents of the box is broken during the move -- the mover will decline responsibility for that damage. Therefore, when you have your mover pack boxes you are also making the mover responsible for damage to the contents of the mover pack boxes (according to the type of insurance you purchase from the mover).
I hope this answers your question...but if you require additional information please don't hesitate to contact us.
And thank you again for your excellent question!
