How to build and properly seal a moving box   For our DIY aficionados, let our experts show you how to properly build and seal a moving box with these quick, easy steps! Why is the type of fold important while securing your box? You may be asking: “Can’t I just quarter fold and call it a day?” The easy quarter fold actually makes the box weaker, likening your chances of your beloved items falling straight to the ground through the bottom of the box. Simply turn that box upside down, place the smaller flaps down before bringing the larger edges to fold over top of them, and tape, tape, tape! Three strips of tape work best in making sure your box is strong and ready to safely hold your goods. The right type of tape is also essential in making sure your box is structurally sound. Not all adhesives are created equal, so be sure to use [...]

Battle of Suburbia: Maryland vs. Virginia

Washington, D.C. is one of the world’s greatest cities, and its suburbs play a significant part in that.

Don’t Let the Rain Bog you Down!

As they say, “April showers bring May flowers”, and at this rate we’ll be frolicking in a wealth of flora (hopefully of the Cherry Blossom variety) soon! But until then, don’t let the rain keep you from taking advantage of all the city and surrounding suburbs have to offer. Washington, D.C.: The Museums: This one’s a given… Washington D.C. has a plethora of great (and often times free!) museums that are fun for all ages.

Santa’s Got a New Sleigh!- Fairfax County Holiday Spirit Campaign

Earlier this month, Town & Country Movers was honored to participate in the Fairfax County Holiday Spirit Campaign! The campaign, which started a partnership with Long and Foster in 2006, provides toys and other items for underprivileged children in Fairfax County. A big part of the campaigns success is due to the incredible efforts of top agent Beckie Owens. Owens, who married a Marine in 1975, has always participated in Toy’s for Tots. In 1996, a coworker of Owens asked if she’d be willing to donate a couple of the toys to this other organization, one that runs through the county. “I just fell in love with the program”, says Beckie after learning more about the Fairfax County Holiday Spirit Campaign. For the next 10 years, Beckie, while still supporting Toys for Tots would also provide toys and necessities for the county. But in 2006, with the help of Long [...]

Crown Looks to Capitalize on Lack of Restaurants in the Gaithersburg Area

By: Brian S. Last night, Town & Country Movers attended “Taste of Crown” at the brand new Crown development in Gaithersburg, MD. As mentioned in a previous post “The New Suburbia“, the entire development covers over 180 acres, and looks to fill over 260,000 square feet of commercial retail. The three current builders, KB Home, Pulte Homes, and M/I Homes showed off models of their phase one town homes. Starting in the mid 500′s and reaching upwards of $700,000 (depending on what finishes are chosen), the town homes have drawn attention from not only people looking to downsize (relatively), but from first-time home buyers as well.   The goal of the event, which catered to real estate agents and contractors alike, was not only to showcase the homes, but to give a glimpse into the various restaurants that will fill Downtown Crown. Asia Nine, Paladar Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar, [...]
