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!

Storage

By: Brian S. At Town & Country Movers, we take great pride in how we store your belongings to ensure they are kept in pristine condition. There are a number of methods we use to make certain your valuables get back to you in the same condition we receive them. Rugs: To prevent folds and dust accumulation, we wrap rugs and line them with paper-padded shrink-wrap. We then store them on our custom built rug racks to avoid stacking. Chandeliers: Fish are meant to swim, birds fly… and chandeliers are meant to hang. That’s why we keep it that way! Our in-house technicians will custom build a case to fit your chandelier, while keeping it in its upright hanging position. Artwork/Mirrors: Whether you’re storing your artwork with us, or simply moving it long distance, we will create a custom frame to encase your piece(s). We also shrink-wrap and protect framed [...]
