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.....
