Packing Services in Boston, MA

Esquire Moving understands more than most Boston movers how overwhelming the packing and unpacking process can be throughout your Boston move or long distance relocation whether it is for the contents of your house or the furniture and inventory from your commercial space. To make things easier, we offer full packing services for your move, which include everything from the floor to the ceiling. In addition, we offer partial packing services, which can be useful when you only need some of your furnishings and possessions packed, but not all. Our goal is to exceed the level of service and professionalism that other Boston moving companies offer by providing a more customized experience that will help to make your move as smooth and stress-free as possible. When we help you to pack for your move, we will not select only certain items to wrap. Instead, we will wrap every piece of furniture that you have with our protective coverings to safe guard each item from any possible harm.

To ensure that we will have the time to make adequate arrangements, we require a minimum of 48-hours advance notice to provide you with our packing services and we will charge the same hourly rate as your move for packing your belongings plus the cost of all packing materials.

Let us know

To be a quality Boston moving company, you must be a professional packer too.

Please let us know if you have any fragile, delicate or breakable items that need special care and handling. Additionally, we recommend that you provide your own personal transportation for items of significant sentimental and/or financial value. Please inquire about our flat rate pricing for complete packing services with specific information regarding the size of your space and load, as well as your moving dates and destination details.

Safety and efficiency are key factors in the packing process and are extremely important to Esquire Moving, your preferred Boston moving company. If you choose to pack some or all of your own belongings, how those items are packed will determine the success of your local or long distance move.

  • Make an inventory list of the furniture and belongings that you will be moving to your new destination, along with a list of items that you are donating or throwing away. This list will help to keep you organized and decrease the chances of misplacing or accidentally throwing away something important to you.


  • Before you begin packing, create an “Essentials Box” which you should keep with you at all times and you should personally transport. This box should contain items that you will need readily available during the moving process. Contents should include medications, valuables, important emergency and insurance documentation, toiletries, basic tools, a change of clothing, and any other essential items that you might need while your household possessions are in transit. An “Essentials Box” will be useful if you are relocating your company as well and it should include important business related items and documentation that you will need in case of an emergency.


  • Choose small boxes for heavy objects, big boxes for lighter objects, and medium boxes for everything else. Try not to overstuff any of the boxes, because bulky boxes will be awkward to carry, difficult to stack, and vulnerable to breaking or collapsing.


  • Do not mix your metal and glass items together in the same box to avoid damage and breakage.


  • Fill your boxes to the top and use as much packing paper as necessary to fill in the gaps for complete protection of your belongings.


  • Make sure that you put large adhesive labels on each box that you pack with a readable list of its contents, designated room or location, necessary fragile warnings, and your name while matching that information to your inventory list. This will help to avoid any difficulty locating your possessions when getting settled into your new house or commercial space and it will help your movers to identify all of your boxes.

We want you to be confident in the moving services that we provide and we want you to know that Esquire Moving is the best Boston mover for you. Please feel free to call our office with any questions that you may have about self-packing or any other concerns at (617) 952-1505.
