Unframed painting

When packing up artwork, it is crucial to follow the instructions given by the artist. This ensures that the work isn't damaged during the move. Additionally, you should check with the artist to ensure that their work can be safely packed and transported. At Boston Best Rate Movers, we use proper materials for packing unframed paintings to protect them from damage during transport. Our experts wrap your unframed painting in acid-free tissue paper and place it inside an extra-thick layer of bubble wrap.

Sculptures

At Boston Best Rate Movers, we understand that sculptures are fragile and must be handled carefully. Our licensed, insured and experienced professionals use best practices and the latest technology to ensure your artwork is properly packed and secured for transport. We take great care when packing sculptures of all sizes, shapes, and materials.

Packaging Services & Supplies

Packing and unpacking can be the most tiresome part of moving. We offer top-notch packing services to reduce the stress of moving. Our packing services are based on the same hourly rates as moving plus cost of packing supplies. If you’d like us to do all, or part of your packing and/or unpacking, please let us know well in advance, since there is a high demand for our packing crews.

Full Service Packing

Should you hire a full service crew? This is a decision you need to make based on time versus cost. A packing service could add a couple hundred dollars to your moving budget. However, if you need to take two weeks off of work in order to get the house packed and organized, it may be worth the price. Most of the time, we can pack your home in one day. This saves not only time, but the hassle of living with -and out of- boxes.

Packing Specialty Items

If you are on a budget or you want to lower the cost of your move, we offer packing of specialty items, particularly fragile only: kitchen, artwork, mirrors, or other breakables or valuables. You can also inquire about our crating services for extra valuable items.

Self-Packing

If you choose to pack yourself, we offer FREE box delivery in the Greater Boston area with a $50 minimum order, when you move with Boston Flat Rate Movers. You pay only for the boxes you use, and we will collect any unused boxes on the day of your move. Don’t know how many boxes you need for your move size? Check our PACKAGES.

Packing Tips

Pack Smart

Load heavier items into smaller boxes. Overloaded large boxes are more likely meant to carry with 2 movers, one box at a time. Those boxes have a greater chance of collapsing because of their own weight and they are almost impossible to stack in the truck. All of this will slow down your whole move process. Fill up each box to the top, and if necessary, use plenty of packing paper to make sure there is no spare room left.

Book Boxes (1.5 cu. ft.)

These are designed to hold books! Yes, the smallest boxes should be used for the heaviest items books, papers, files, CDs, DVDs, record albums (some people still have them O), canned food and tools/hardware. Pack them tightly since these cartons often end up on or near the bottom when the truck is loaded.

3-Cubes (3.0 cu. ft.)

These are used for clothing, small electronics, miscellaneous items from drawers and kitchen cabinets, small picture frames, shoes and many other medium-weight items.

Large Cartons (6.0 cu. ft.)

These are great for bulky items that do not weigh a whole lot for their size bedding, pots and pans, sweaters, lampshades, etc.
