Pack and Protect

Preparing your home to protect it from damage is something we take very seriously. We’re so adept at properly handling all of your things, that we designed an entire intensive training course at our facilities, complete with a two-story house built inside our warehouse. Each employee is required to attend our training before he or she can set foot near a job site or a moving truck.

Home Sweet Home. Let’s Protect It.
You take pride in your home. And so does Swift Van Lines. We want to help maintain it for you—and for generations to come. That’s why all of our crews are trained right here at our facilities on how to protect critical areas of your home from potential damage. Here’s our prep checklist:

  • Protect carpets, flooring, and stairs with floor runners and adhesive plastic
  • Pad banisters
  • Pad doors
  • Pad doorjambs
  • Professionally pad wrap all furniture and upholstery with stretch wrap
  • Who’s doing the packing?
  • Swift Van Lines can do all of the packing for you or provide you with the materials and guidance you need to do the packing yourself. Or, we can also do a fragile only pack. No matter what you choose, Swift Van Lines will design a plan that suits your desires and your budget.
