The advance communication confirming the work was great. They showed on time and were ready to work. They had previous experienced in loading PODS, and demonstrated they knew what to do. We are storing and will be shipping very little air, they made use of virtually all available space.

We have experienced 9 major moves in the past 39 years so have a fairly good idea how long loading should take, we estimated 2-3 hours - it was completed in just over 1 hour.

Would definitely hire them again.

They called ahead with ETA, arrived on time, and ready to help move upon arrival. The team was polite and careful as they moved our belongings. They organized all the boxes and furniture to pack the truck tightly. No space was spared which was great for a long distance move. We would hire Packed again in the future, they did a great job!

The two-person team arrived on time, took good care with moving our stuff to the POD, and packed the POD well-enough to give us some extra room to add some more lighter stuff afterwards. We still have one more POD to go after our house sells - hope to get the same crew for help then.
