Are there problems with packing myself?

The biggest barriers preventing you from packing your own belongings is obtaining the right packing materials for the job and getting access to a full transit insurance cover in the process. Many insurers don’t like to cover self-packed effects in part because most people use the wrong materials. This leaves you with little option than to fork out more money to hire professional packers or scrounge around for whatever boxes you can find. Then you’ll need to find a freight company prepared to transport everything for you.

So what’s the solution?

Pak-It-Yourself have developed a practical and easy to use Pak-It-Yourself system designed especially to overcome these barriers so you can pack like a professional using the packaging we supply and get access to our hassle-free freighting service. This option is the best way to preserve your privacy too, not everyone is comfortable with the idea of strangers handling their things.       

 What's wrong with using the collection of old boxes I've found?

Boxes that have been commercially used before you get them can be structurally compromised, which puts your belongings at risk of damage. Any previously used fruit boxes should also be avoided if moving internationally, as you will attract the attention of the destination quarantine authorities - this can be a very costly mistake. Also having an assortment of box types and sizes can make your freight challenging to load them economically into a vehicle, container or storage... and space is a valuable commodity.
