    Jump for Joy The packout process - because I can't remember...

    Advertisements
    We have a packout date!!!

    Jan 4th.

    My question is simple...when they come to do your packout - it takes 2 days to pack everything up? Or one? I thought when we left Silverdale that they packed up the house on one day and packed it all out the next. I had requested a pack up here in SC on the 7th (a monday) and packout on the 8th ( we're leaving the 9th), but if they take two days to pack up then the 4th and 7th would work to get it all out on the 8th.

    I'm just trying to get my duckies in a row and I can't seem to ever remember jack anymore.

    Did that question even make any sense?


    I am so freakin' excited to get outta here.

    depends on the movers. Ours did it all in one day talk about crazy we have a ton of stuff. but the guy wanted to be on the road that night. they had to have 3 teams of packers to pack all our crap.
    usually it's two one day to pack one to load.

    Yippee for packout date!

    i think it depends on how much stuff you have and the moving company's staffing. We've had both situtations... 1 day for pack up and one for pack out or 2 days for pack up and 1 day for pack out.

    Ok. Thanks ladies I just wasn't sure. I have a friend that left about 2 months ago, I think they did her pack up in 2 days and out in 1...but she's in Idaho now and it's too early to call and ask her

    Ours was 2 days. The first day the majority of the larger items were packed up. The 2nd day consisted more of loading, but some packing as well. The 2nd day, we had like 4 guys versus 2 guys on the 1st day. They move FAST though....at least the ones we had!

    Its normally 2 days. They come the first day pack everything up. Then the next day they mark all the boxes with numbers and load it all up.


    When they moved us from SD it took them 2 full days of packing and loading.

    Ours was packed up yesterday and is being packed out today. We have an express move, so that is the only thing that isn't being moved out today. Those movers will be here tomorrow and do it all in one day.

    Well, if they pack us up on the 4th and out on the 7th, I guess I can live with that I was just hoping to time it right so that they'd pack us out the day before we left. A 3 year old in a hotel room is really not anything I look forward to

    We had a three day packout and it really just depends how much stuff you have.
