Last week, we shipped another trailer load of gently used furniture and appliances to the greater New Orleans area. This time, the shipment went to Houma, Louisiana, an area hit by Katrina and further devastated by Hurricane Gustav. The success of the program—more than 50 tons of household goods have been shipped during the past—is due in large measure to the donated services of Gentle Giant Movers in Somerville, Walter Mucha (pronounced “moo hah”), a local independent mover in Brookline and StoragePlus in Waltham. We have had extensive experience with all three companies and can attest to the quality and professionalism of their services. Please consider using these businesses should you have storage or moving requirements.
