With a little help from my friends. Very little
I honestly don’t know what I would have done without having a professional moving company help me with my move. I had friends help me pack, but I was more or less reluctant to force them to help me with the heavy lifting. Mostly, because the last time I moved, it was a disaster.
First of all, since we are now in our thirties, most of us have some kind of back-related injury at this point in our lives. We no longer simply “bounce back” from labor-intensive work. Instead, we have learned how to endlessly complain about how a small round of ping-pong managed to make us unable to walk for three days.
When I was trying to round up my buddies to help me move, it was hard enough simply to coordinate a date and time to do so. After I finally found a date that enough people were going to be able to make, it was hard getting them to actually help out. And when I did, one of my friends hurt their back. All I’m saying is that I learned the hard way that if you want a quick and easy move, HIRE A PROFESSIONAL.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends. They are all amazing in ways that are completely unrelated to their ability to be helpful during a move. But this time I moved, I knew that the best thing for all of us would be for me to get some professional help.
Before you think my friends are mean, may I remind you that they also through me a GREAT housewarming party! Throwing a party is something they absolutely excel at!
