When I brought up to my friend that I was moving without any help, my friend reminded me what it was like last time. And then she promptly handed me the business card of Manpower Movers, a moving company in San Diego. The last time I moved was five years ago, and since then, I’ve forgotten about all of the agony and pain involved in performing a move yourself. I remember the good parts (pizza and beer afterward), but I didn’t remember how long it took and how entirely exhausting it was.
The more she talked about it, the more I realized that yes, it was a horrific experience, and no, I didn’t want to repeat it. Especially because this time I was going to be moving even more than I was the last time. Of course, over the course of 5 years, one will acquire exponential amounts of clothing, décor and furniture. Or I did, anyway.
I wasn’t moving far, but I was moving from the suburbs into Downtown San Diego, which meant that I would have to deal with parking, etc. I hate parking. In fact, I didn’t want to have to move into the city, but it was so much closer to work, I hated spending the extra money on commuting to work.
I knew that Manpower Movers would know a thing or two about bust parking and moving in the city—and I was right! They were incredibly helpful in the process and even brought orange cones to protect me, the movers and my belongings. I will definitely have to write down my positive experience with a moving company because this time I want to remember my moving experience—for good this time.
Manpower Movers was totally professional and helpful—I couldn’t imagine trusting anyone else with my move. City life is going to suit me, I think.
