Where to Donate Your Stuff Before Moving

When you realize there are so many things to pack, it’s probably time for some spring cleaning. Our packing and moving experts know where to donate your stuff before moving to or from Nashville. Even though we offer excellent Nashville packing services, we understand that not everything should necessarily move into the new house with you.

Donating items to places like Goodwill or the Salvation Army not only helps you downsize, but it will also make you feel good for giving back to those less fortunate. Before you start packing, gather the items you want to get rid of and head to any of the following places in Nashville to donate your stuff before moving.

• Goodwill

• Local Libraries

• Dress for Success

• Habitat for Humanity ReStore

• Baby2Baby

• Food Banks

• eBay Giving Works

• Salvation Army

• Pickup Please
