Services > Packing & Unpacking


From the most fragile items to those special mementos, the staff at Boyd are well trained to ensure our clients’ memories are packed with the utmost of care.

Our packing crews use professional packing materials to protect these valuables, including specialized cartons,  recyclable Kraft paper, bubble wrap, micro foam and plastic wrap.

Boyd offers three types of packing services:

– Time & Materials
– Unit Packing
– Packing by the Weight

Time and material packing is offered to clients moving locally who wish to have our crew perform a small amount of packing on the day of their move. Clients are charged by the hour for both packing and moving time and additionally for the materials used.

Unit packing is performed on long distance moves and for shipments coming in to our storage facility. This is for clients who wish to have only a small amount of packing done such as breakables. All prices include the labour for packing, all materials and unpacking at destination.

Packing by the weight is also performed on long distance moves and for shipments coming in to our storage facility. This service is for clients that wish to have Boyd perform a complete packing service of everything in their home. Clients are provided a rate based on the entire weight of their shipment.  All prices include the labour for packing and all materials. Rates can also be provided for clients wishing to have a complete unpacking service at destination.

Fragile items such as stained glass windows, art work, marble and glass tabletops, and chandeliers  may require the special care and attention that can only be provided by custom wood crating. Boyd has a complete in house crating department ready to service any special requirements to ensure the safe transport of our client’s belongings.

Clients can sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that qualified professionals are taking care of their valuables.
