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

Both Dana and Annie were extremely helpful and accommodating when arranging the move. Kyle and Tyler executed the move quickly and efficiently while... paying attention to detail. 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

HOW TO PACK FOR YOUR MOVE

A family unpacking after moving
Below are some packing hints if you decide to tackle the packing yourself. Just remember, if you get overwhelmed Guindon Moving is happy to send our Professionals to assist you.

Print this List

Please keep in mind that it is illegal and unsafe for us to transport items that are flammable, explosive, or corrosive. You can find a list of these prohibited items here:

Hazardous Materials

Packing and Moving China and Glassware

 

Guindon Moving & Storage recommends using dish packs for china and glassware. Place plenty of cushioning material in the bottom of the carton and between layers.

Wrap each item in several sheets of clean paper. Begin wrapping items from the corner of the paper, tucking the edges as you roll. Place items in the box with rims down. Remember, the heavier pieces go on the bottom!

Plates should be wrapped individually using several sheets of paper. Start from the corner, wrapping diagonally, continuously tucking in overlapping edges. Bundle four to six plates in a double layer of newspaper. Place bundles in a row, standing them on edge. Surround each bundle with crushed paper, being careful to leave no unfilled spaces.

Stand shallow bowls on edge. Deep bowls (such as mixing bowls) are nested two or three together, on their rims. Wrap sugar bowl lids in tissue, turning them upside down on the bowl before wrapping them together. Place sugar bowls, pitchers and similar pieces upright in the carton.

Cups and glassware should be wrapped in a double layer of paper and placed on rims, in a row, on the upper layer within the box with all the handles facing upward in the same direction.

 

 

Packing and Moving Silverware

 

Loose flatware may be wrapped either individually or in sets, in clear plastic or tissue. If the silverware is in a chest, you still may want to wrap the pieces individually and replace in the chest. Fill in all empty spaces in the chest with tissue paper or paper toweling.

 

 

Packing and Moving Silver-plate or Sterling Silver

 

Since air causes silver to tarnish, all silver pieces should be completely enclosed in fresh, clean tissue paper or plastic wrap. Silver bowls, tea sets and serving dishes should be carefully wrapped as fragile items and packed the same as china.

 

 

Packing and Moving Books

 

Because books are heavy, use small cartons. Pack on edge, alternating bound edge to open edge. Pack books of same general size together.

 

 

Packing and Moving Lamps

 

After removing the light bulb, wrap the base, harp, and bulb separately, in newsprint, and place together in a box, filling spaces with crushed paper. Carefully wrap each shade in three or four sheets of fresh tissue paper, a pillowcase or a large lightweight towel. Large, Tiffany-style lampshades and chandeliers should be packed in a crate. Your Guindon Moving & Storage representative can arrange to have a custom crate built.

 

 

Packing and Moving Glass Table Tops, Marble Slabs, Mirrors and Art

 

It is best to consult with your Guindon Moving & Storage representative about obtaining custom-made cartons or crates for these items. Note: Paper should never touch the surface of oil paintings.

 

Packing and Moving Clothing

 

Footwear may be left in shoe boxes and placed in large size boxes. Shoes may be wrapped individually, then in pairs. Footwear should be cushioned to avoid damage occurring to high heels or ornaments. Do not pack heavy items on top of shoes.

Leave clothes on hangers and transport in wardrobe cartons. You may remove garments from the hanger, fold and place in a suitcase or lined box. Some lightweight clothing such as hosiery and lingerie may be left in dresser drawers.

Guindon Moving & Storage recommends taking any furs or high-value items with you, rather than packing them.

 

Packing and Moving Linen and Bedding

Because linens are lightweight, they can be used for padding delicate items or folded and placed in larger, lined boxes.

 

Packing and Moving Draperies, Curtains and Rugs

Draperies and curtains may be folded and packed in larger, lined boxes. An alternative is to place the items on hangers in a wardrobe carton. Leave rugs on the floor for the mover to handle unless they have just returned from the cleaners. Carpets will be rolled and stretch wrapped prior to placing them on the truck.

 

Packing and Moving Photographs and Valuables

If possible, carry all valuables and photos with you to your new destination.

Photos are best protected in albums; any framed photographs should be wrapped and bundled similar to plates. Loose photos should be secured and protected from damage. Guindon Moving & Storage suggests packing photographs in separate boxes for shipping.

 

Packing and Moving Small Appliances

Small clocks, radios and similar items can be packed in the same carton, or with the linens. Wrap items individually using several pieces of paper, and place in the packed box with plenty of crushed paper.

 

Packing and Moving Large Appliances

Large appliances must be serviced and dry before shipping. Be sure to discuss this with your Guindon Moving & Storage’ representative.

 

Packing and Moving Tools

Hand tools may be left in toolboxes, fill spaces with crushed paper, or the tools may be packed according to general packing rules. Always use small boxes because tools are generally heavy.

 

Packing or Moving Food

We suggest you use or give away food. Guindon Moving & Storage does not ship anything that is perishable.

Did you know...?

Where do I Get Packing Supplies?

There’s a lot of packing supplies needed to optimize your moving timeline, from belts to bubble wrap to dollies, moving blankets, moving boxes, totes, and more! Be sure to start getting these items together early on if you are packing yourself.

First, check to see if your friends and family have any supplies left over from a recent move. After this, check in with your movers. Typically, moving companies will sell all the packing supplies you could need at a great price.
