Reduce Your Stress With Our Professional Packers

Packing efficiently can significantly reduce the amount of time you invest into moving. You probably have much more important things you would rather put your energy into – like tying up loose ends at work or taking care of your family.

In addition to saving time, you remove the chance of getting injured. Lifting heavy objects puts a lot of stress on your back and muscles which may cause you to get hurt.

Your stress levels will go down significantly. Sometimes packing is the most stressful aspect of the move. It can take months to get everything organized, wrapped and boxed up.

If you are inexperienced, packing your boxes may present challenges as you try to figure out how much you can fit into them and how to arrange them.

Let the professionals at Guindon handle it. We have been packing and moving delicate items for the past 80 years. Our team is well-trained and experienced at making sure your fine china, drinking glasses, mirrors, artwork, stereo equipment, picture frames and everything else is protected and arrives safely at your new home.

Packing services are also convenient for people who are older or have physical or organizational disabilities. Hiring our packing services is a great way to make sure that you and your loved ones are well taken care of.

Packing Tips


We have been packing and moving for over the past 80 years. This experience has taught us the best practices. Here are a few things we learned along the way.

  • Make sure you pack everything by room. Do it one room at a time.
  • List your items out on either a piece of paper or the moving box itself.
  • Group like items together for better organization.
  • Layer everything in a box by weight
  • Put heavy items near the door to make moving day faster
  • Group fragile items together and label the boxes so your movers will be extra cautious

Did you know...?

How Does “Moving Valuation” Work?

There are three levels of valuation. The basic plan is typically called “Release Rate Liability” and will pay you a certain amount of money per pound or a fraction of what your item's value is.

You can also get “Full-Value Coverage” which means that, if your belongings are lost or damaged, will be repaired, replaced with items, or get a cash settlement.

Lastly, you will be able to mark your items on a “High-Value Inventory'' list. All items that come in at over $100 per pound must be on this list. This can be anything from jewelry to art to antiques and more.
