Downsizing and Donations

At Town & Country Movers, we come across many items that customers wish to have donated during their move. We recently came across this beautiful baby grand piano in a home that was being downsized from in Maryland. Donna and Clyde Messerly had a dilemma. After many years living and working in the DC area, they were moving into a retirement home at the beach. The problem was what to do with their cherished Weber baby grand piano? The piano was in pristine condition without so much as a scratch. Efforts to sell the piano were unsuccessful. The couple was heartbroken at the thought of the piano going to the dump. Our team comes across donations and downsizing problems like this all the time, so we recommended donating the piano to our friends at Habitat for Humanity. https://youtu.be/QGkpukKCk-E   Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland, took most of the other items [...]

How to build and properly seal a moving box

https://youtu.be/4GaEfjgB1j4   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 [...]
