When preparing for your move we encourage you to consider charitable donation when moving. Moving is always a good time to get rid of stuff you don’t need. Some people do a yard sale prior their move, some try to sell it online and some just ask the movers on move day to get rid of stuff for them. Excalibur Moving and Storage will always try to pass it on to the right places, because one person’s trash can be another person’s treasure. Excalibur Moving and Storage has gathered some awesome organizations that will take the stuff you don’t need and give it to those who need.
