Our Various Services

Our team at Murphy Moving & Storage is here to help you plan for your moving day. Once you reach out to us, we’ll assign a Murphy Moving & Storage Coordinator and Estimator to assist you with details such as these. Our team is experienced and award-winning, so you can rest assured that your move is in good hands.

Below are some common packing options. We are happy to tailor our packing services to meet your needs and schedule:

  • Full-Service Packing

Full packing services are when we send one of our crews out to your home in the days leading up to your planned moving date. Murphy crews are experienced with packing household items of all sizes and types. Let it be our job to take the stress out of packing all your home’s contents, including all your collectibles, dishes, electronics, mirrors, mattresses. If you have not moved in a long time, you might be surprised how much accumulates.

  • Partial Packing

Having our team of experienced packers lend a hand is something we’re happy to arrange. Our goal is to help make your move as stress-free as possible. While we’re performing your free in-home estimate (or Virtual Survey), we’ll discuss which rooms and items you plan on packing yourself.

  • Crating Large or Delicate Items

When it comes to moving your more fragile household goods, some items may need to be crated before movers load it on the truck. Your Murphy estimator will talk with you about special handling for large mirrors, artwork, glass tabletops, and antiques. Large items may also include treadmills, trampolines, gym equipment, washer/dryers, and refrigerators. Before your move, be sure to speak with your estimator about large items that you plan on taking with you. When you choose Murphy to relocate these items, we handle arrangements for you so you have less to worry about come moving day.

  • Electronics Packing & Installation

Wall-mounted televisions and other electronics can be carefully disassembled and packed before the movers arrive for moving day and then reassembled in your new home.

  • Unpacking

We recommend that you start unpacking as soon as possible. Be sure to remove all packing materials and then flatten each box. Unpacking soon after your move helps you verify all items are where they should be and prevent any small items from being tossed out with the trash. We offer unpacking services as an option for all our moves.

If you choose to have us help unpack, we’ll remove each item from the boxes and carefully place them on a flat surface nearby. For example, if we are unpacking your kitchenware, we’ll place items on a counter or your kitchen table. If we are unpacking your bedroom boxes, we’ll look to place items on a dresser.

If you decide to do the packing yourself, Murphy Moving & Storage offers helpful tips to make the process a smooth one.
