Full Packing Service by MICROSHIP's qualified professional movers.

MicroShip offers full packing service by expert professional movers. What it really delivers is peace of mind because:

  • You don’t have to worry about the details.
  • Your items arrive safely.
  • Your move is tracked for you.
  • Your furniture, equipment, art, and boxes are placed at the destination.
  • Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Before you grab some grocery store cartons and start filling them up, consider the value of MicroShip’s full packing service.  Everything affects the quality of your move: packing materials, packing know-how, padding and shrink wrap, and a crew dedicated to seeing all of your items arrive in perfect order at your destination.  Full packing can be the difference between breakage and safe transport.

Enjoy a fully orchestrated move.

While you go about your day, our full packing crew will

  • Pad all furniture (included in the price)
  • Shrink wrap all upholstery
  • Wrap all fragile items and pack in heavy corrugated cartons
  • Label and inventory your items for optimal delivery placement
  • Properly load the truck for travel
  • Unload and place items in the correct space
  • Provide full unpack service if you require it


Full Move: Avoid the disappointment of loss or breakage.

Full packing moves include a complete inventory of boxes, furniture, equipment, and electronics and their intended location at your new site. Single items like antiques and large heirlooms are padded with care and anchored securely in our truck. By letting us do a full packing, you won’t have to worry about collapsed produce boxes and poor packing materials.

Yes, we’ll move the piano too with a full move.

MicroShip has been full packing and moving pianos all over the country for over a decade. Moving pianos requires special skills and knowledge to be sure your instrument is successfully moved to its new home. If you have a baby grand or concert grand piano, relax. We have the required piano boards, special hardware packing and manpower needed to do the job right.  To us full packing means full peace of mind.

We handle seniors and estates with extra care with full moves.

Moves that involve antiques, heirlooms, artwork, and most of all, more than one delivery location, benefit the most from a full packing solution because items 

  • Are often rare and irreplaceable
  • Have strong sentimental value to the family
  • May need to be moved more than once to accommodate temporary staging, delivery schedules and geographic location

Full packing ensures that nothing will be lost or damaged in the process.

Relocating your office? We’ll protect your assets.

When moving computers, printers, copiers and other expensive office equipment, full packing takes away the worry of technical service calls when you arrive at your new space.  What about the solid mahogany credenza and leather desk chair?  For the best results, full packing is the way to go.

If you still choose to pack yourself…
Here's a list of packing supplies that will come in handy:

Packing Materials

*WARNING: Insect eggs and insects such as roaches can travel in food boxes. Keep this in mind when getting boxes from food stores.
