Right from the very first call I knew we had the right company and people to do the job. Professional, polite, and pleasant on the phone. Our closing... date got a little complicated and Roger and his staff was understanding and flexible about changing dates. On the day of the move 3 men showed up with a large truck, you could tell they knew what the were doing by the order that they loaded the truck and the way they fit everything into the truck. The men were pleasant, respectful, hardworking and we enjoyed teasing and talking with them while they worked. Would definitely recommend this company for moving.read more

I had a delivery of chairs and a desk coming from my favorite FL furniture. Due to the pandemic it was delayed for several months. But after it... arrived in the UP, I received in a few days. The service I received was professional and the delivery went smoothly. All packing materials were taken out and the family room is starting to take shape! Thanks so much.read more

They were careful with the desks (metal, and heavy!) and took precautions to ensure no damage was done to doorways, etc. I would recommend Guindon for any and all of your moving needs.read more

This was my first time using a moving company and the guys I got from Guindon were great. They were very nice and respectful. They took extra care to... make sure my cat was secured while moving things out and were pretty careful with my items overall. They also went above and beyond to make stuff work. My box spring wouldn't fit up the stairs so one of the guys walked it around the entire building and they hoisted it up the side of the building to the emergency exit in the back! Unfortunately after PLENTY of out of the box thinking and effort the guys were not able to get my couch through the door way, but they gave me 30% off to Ashley Home Store to buy a new one and helped me store it in my storage area. It did end up being a bit more expensive than the estimate, so that was the only real negative I have, but it was well worth it. Anything they took apart they rebuilt (though my one of the legs on my kitchen table is a bit funky now) and they helped me place everything exactly where I wanted it. They were a great help. Definitely recommend.read more

These people are amazing. I was sitting in a lot with a 20' loaded truck, ready to move into my new apartment. The movers I had hired NO SHOWED. I... am new to the area, a woman, and solo. I had no idea how I could get help, especially at the last minute nearing the 4th of July. I called Guindon Moving Co. and spoke to amazing Annie. Annie said she had a crew that she could dispatch immediately. They arrived at my place within 30 minutes. The guys were so polite and professional. They managed to clean out the truck in short order and did it with a smile in the intense heat we had. Scott and Tyler were absolutely phenomenal. I would recommend this company, hands down, over and above any company. They exceeded my expectations by a wide margin and I hope that anyone who reads this review will use Guindon Moving. They will rock your move!read more

Guindon Moving and Storage is a top-notch, professional moving company. I had to move belongings out of a small apartment and into a storage unit. ... I was not organized -- items were all over the apartment. I spoke with the courteous office staff on Monday an scheduled the move for Thursday. The crew showed up on time and quickly packed everything up, safely wrapped in marked boxes. They took it to a 10' x 10' storage unit and got everything to fit. I thought that would be impossible. I could not more highly recommend these movers.read more
