Gentle Giant Moving Company (http://www.gentlegiant.com), the premier residential mover in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Virginia, today announced the return of the popular "Pack Like the Pros" summer season packing seminar on July 21, 2007.

This year's free "Pack Like the Pros" seminar will be held on Saturday, July 21st from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Gentle Giant headquarters in Somerville, MA. A complimentary sampling of professional packing materials will be provided to each guest at the seminar, where veteran Giants will demonstrate hands-on packing techniques, offer helpful time-and-money saving tips, and provide advice on preventing damage during a move. A brief Q & A period will follow the packing demonstration, and coffee and light refreshments will be served.
The "Pack Like the Pros" seminar will focus mainly on the following topics:
"We want to share important information that many people may not know about safe and effective packing," said Larry O'Toole President and founder of Gentle Giant Moving Company. "Based on years of experience with common moving challenges as well as the knowledge we have regarding how to pack newer electronics and high-tech equipment, we feel that we have the ability to help people, whether they move with us or not. Our goal is to improve the process of moving for everyone by reducing packing stress."
According to Gentle Giant's Quality Control Director Ayanna McKinnon, "Customers are often surprised when we show them how to pack certain items or tell them which items are most susceptible to damage while moving." McKinnon offers the following advice on preparing for a move:
