Why do you charge for packing by the box and not by the hour?
Normally when we provide packing services, we assume liability for everything in the boxes so that is why our services are per box and not per hour. Also, our employees pack at different speeds, some are slow and some are very fast, and therefore we want to ensure that we aren’t rushing those that are a bit slower as we are more concerned that they are doing the job properly. If you would like us to pack boxes you supply (so long as they are moving boxes), we could charge by the hour. That being said, we would not assume the same liability, though you would still be getting professional packers at a reasonable hourly rate.
