Some customers choose to do all their own packing, or pack certain items themselves and leave the rest in Gerber’s hands. With Gerber, you can pack as much or as little as you like, and let Gerber handle the move.
If you want to do some or all of the packing yourself, we can advise you on the type of boxes or cartons you’ll need. You can purchase new and used boxes from us, along with plain newsprint (so much cleaner than newspapers!), bubble wrap, tape, and other packing supplies. See Box Specification

Worth noting: While you may save some money by doing your own packing, please keep in mind that Gerber—like other reputable moving companies—does not accept liability if there is damage to items we did not pack. Be sure to discuss this with your Gerber representative as you plan your move.
