Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need.

About a year ago we had my daughter's household goods packed, crated and shipped to London by Craters & Freighters. Their local number is 202-237-7447. They were efficient. Nothing broke. And everything cleared customs easily in London. I cannot give you any information as to the cost but I would guess that interstate and international shipping rates are pretty standard. The costs were borne by my daughter at the other end. Her only comment was, "Everything is unpacked and intact and I am drowning in a sea of bubble-wrap." All the boxes were loaded on a pallet and shrink-wrapped together with what seemed like a mile of plastic so nothing would stray. That is exactly how it was delivered in London. We would use them again.
