Spotlight On: Hire A Packer!


This post is sponsored by Hire A Packer

Welcome to the third and final post in my series highlighting the Hire A Group companies! If you missed those, let me quickly fill you in. Hire A Group comprises Hire A Mover, Hire A Box and Hire A Packer. They are all pretty self-explanatory, but if you fancy a hot dude or cute cat photo you can read my hilarious and no doubt highly entertaining posts on Hire A Mover and Hire A Box at the links (and thank me later). Haha.

Put your hand up if you like packing boxes! OK, so I can't actually see you but I'm pretty sure noone put their hand up, because we're all normal around here, right? It's boring, it's tedious, it's hard work and frankly I'd rather be watching Season 4 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine than putting my stuff in a cardboard cube. This is where Hire A Packer comes in handy! These lovely ladies (it may not be these actual ladies depending on your location, but how sensible do they look? Seriously!) will carefully wrap and pack your household items so that you don't have to. They have a lot of experience with packing too, so they'll do a bang-up job of ensuring nothing gets banged up (all Hire A Packer staff must pass training courses and police checks). Packing is so time-consuming, but not if someone else is doing it for you! Not only that, your stress will be reduced along with your chances of having a mental breakdown (may just be talking about myself at this point). I remember when hubby and I moved from our rental into our first home, and the epic all-nighter we pulled trying to get everything packed by Moving Day. I was a crying, delirious mess in the end, and it was not pretty. LOL.

So as well as not having to participate in dreaded manual labour (hey, the less physical exertion the better, says my ageing body), hiring a packer means you'll be more organised in your new home, as they label all the boxes as they go, so you know what room they belong in. Don't you hate it when you open a box in the loungeroom only to realise it in fact contains your pots and pans? Hire A Packer can also unpack your boxes and help settle you in by putting things away! It's suggested that this is best done the day after you move, as there will be Removalists at your new abode on the actual day and it will be pretty chaotic. I would love to have someone unpack for me, and the Hire A Packer ladies can even make the beds, organise the kitchen, put away books and DVDs and set up your kids room. I would draw the line at asking them to put together your backyard trampoline though, because boundaries. Although I'm sure they could do it! (Seriously, don't ask, it's just not polite). It's such a comprehensive service that's really designed to make your move smooth and stress-free.

In my first post of this series, you may remember me mentioning my Mother-In-Law's penchant for moving house. Well true to form, she's actually shifted since July, either once or twice, I legitimately can't keep up anymore! The latest move is quite a distance away, and given hubby's hatred of driving, we are waiting this one out, because it won't be long before she has itchy feet and moves again. I think she must have her belongings down to a minimum, because Hire A Packer or not, it's still no fun moving, although for some reason she loves it!

  3. I love the sound of Hire A Packer unpacking the boxes at the other end and helping set up the new home too! Every time I've moved I've had stuff in boxes for months afterwards! I definitely want to use this service for my next move! Thanks for sharing about this great service.

  7. Such a sensible idea to hire a packer, we did when we moved 6 years ago and she followed the truck and unpacked the kitchen and kids bedrooms for us too. Such a god send!

  10. Such a great idea. When I relocated for work once in the past they paid for packers so it was great. I really just had to provide directions (though I did have to pack my own clothes etc from memory!).

  12. Uggh, I have amassed so much stuff in 18 months. I'm dreading the move back to Australia and all the selling and packing I'm going to have to do! #teamlovinlife

    1. I know the feeling! We are trying to de-clutter and throw things out currently. SO much stuff! :)

  13. We live in a street filled with navy homes and I look on in envy each time someone moves and the packers come in first. If the time comes again and we are moving I will have to look at hiring packers of my own.

  14. I can't imagine choosing packing as a career - it truly is the most heinous job! These ladies are angels! #teamIBOT
