Our Packing Services and the Stipulations for Packing on Your Own

If items are not packaged properly, we must package them properly for you and this will lead to additional fees. Appliances and electronics are best being packaged in their original packaging or in secure boxes large enough to fit them.
We carry all of the highest quality packaging materials if you do decide to pack belongings on your own. Everything must be properly packed in boxes and labeled clearly. Boxes containing breakables must be labeled as “Fragile.”
Any furniture made of press wood or particle board containing drawers must be completely emptied. Two drawer cabinets can remain packed as long as they are taped to secure the drawers. You may keep clothes in dresser drawers as long as the drawers are secured shut.
Elevators, Stairways and Street Permits
Customers living in an apartment, dorm, military base, or other regulated community or sorts, must get permission from management or other authority figure to use the elevator, stairways and parking lots. Find out the rules for moving in or out of the facility. If our crew must park the truck in the street, you may need to get a city permit. This permit must be presented on moving day as well as any other documents.
Before the movers start loading the truck on the day scheduled, they will conduct a walkthrough to make sure all entryways are clear and items are packed properly. At this time they will inform you if they notice poorly packaged items or furniture that must be disassembled. It is your responsibility to correct these issues or the movers can do so for an additional charge. Bay Area Movers is NOT liable to cover or reimburse customers for any items damaged that weren’t originally packaged by us or with our materials.
