Residential Packing and Crating
Part of the stress of moving comes from concern over whether your valuable possessions will make it to their final destination without damage. Utilizing Hansen Bros. Moving and Storage’s professional packing services will reduce the risk of damage and greatly reduce your stress.
When Hansen Bros. performs a full pack, we are responsible for properly packing all your belongings to ensure a safe move. Our trained professional packers use only the best materials available which not only protect your items they increase efficiency as well. Dishes and glassware are wrapped in clean newsprint and densely packed into heavy double wall corrugated dishpacks. Packing densely reduces the movement of the items in the box, which is what causes most damage during a move.
The only frustration was that we were charged for the time that they were stuck in traffic (before they got to the apartment to start the job). They should have checked the traffic repot and planned accordingly. Paula was great! She brought coffee and doughnuts, helped pack, and coordinated the job. The movers were very friendly and courteous.

Large mirrors and pictures are wrapped in paper pads and placed in 4-part mirror packs. The 4-part mirror packs telescope to accommodate a wide range of sizes and provide multiple layers of protection. Hansen Bros. utilizes a full range of cartons to pack your belongings, larger cartons for bulky light-weight items and smaller cartons for heavier items. For example, linens and pillows are packed in our 6.0 cu.ft. extra large carton, while books and magazines are packed in small 1.5 cu.ft. book cartons. There are even wardrobe cartons equipped with bars to hang your clothes right out of the closet. By using the proper size and type of carton helps ensure the items safety and assists the movers in recognizing if the contents are heavy or fragile to facilitate handling and loading.
Customers sometimes choose a partial pack when they want to economize or have plenty of time to prepare before their move and are willing to some of the work. Then Hansen Bros. will come into pack the more difficult, fragile items, such as glassware, fine china, lamps and mirrors.
In keeping with our overall philosophy, we welcome the opportunity to provide as much or as little service as the customer desires. We are here to meet the customer’s needs which can be outlined in a survey performed by one of our Relocation Consultants.
