Every once in awhile.....

You know, the purpose of this blog was the give you a glimpse into this ridiculous profession.  And 99% of the time that is exactly what it will be.  However, every once in awhile the stars line up, and a miracle happens. We were supposed to move a hutch.  This was a seemingly simple job that I, ever the optomist, was expecting to be another fiasco.  And for the first time in over a year it wasn't.

The seller had sold everything else in the house except for this piece of furniture.  They were not even at the property when we arrived.  So immedately I am in a good mood because there is no one looking over our shoulder.  And since there was NOTHING in the house there was nothing to navigate around.  Or at least I thought the house was empty.  I am not even sure why I looked.  It is not something I ever do, but curiosity got the best of me.  And there it was......ABSOLUTE PERFECTION....

To make a long story short...if you want to make your movers abnormally happy, just follow these few simple rules.

* Don't be there, just leave a key under the mat.

* Move every single piece of furniture out of the dwelling except the piece we are moving.

* Leave two non-domestic beers in the fridge...preferable something dark.

And they lived happily ever after.....


  1. Haha score! I wonder if they left it there on purpose. I mean if nothing else was in there than they must have! Hope you had a good time with it!

  2. It will remain one of life's great mysteries. Just in case it was some elaborate setup that might wind up on Dateline NBS, I did not partake. However, I like to think that they were there on purpose.
