I can't believe it. Now my aunt has suddenly decided to let the moving company pack it all. We did all of that packing for nothing!   :madsmiley:

Sometimes you have to start the project to know you should let the pros do it.

I've only had a moving company help once. It was when I was in the Army and owned virtually nothing. Go figure.

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

I always enjoyed stories of when the military moved my uncle; it would be done incredibly quickly, but they'd pack up ashtrays with butts and ash still in them.
O unashamed intercessor of Christians, ever loyal advocate before the Creator, do not disregard the prayerful voice of sinners but in your goodness hasten to assist us who trustfully cry out to you: Intercede always, O Mother of God, in behalf of those who honor you!

I think the company that moved me was Two Men and The Locusts. Was like a whirlwind of efficiency.

I worked a couple of days in a moving company. Most of the co-workers had some problems. One guy just mentioned causally how deep his brother stabbed him with a knife. Most of them didnt like to talk, just wanted to get the day over with..

A close friend of mine that also goes to Church, and we pray the rosary together, works at a moving company and he also had a troubled adulthood with drugs and homelessness. But its good now, thanks to God.

I can't BELIEVE it!! The house inspection went really badly, and now it looks like the whole thing is going to fall through! We're looking at more houses this afternoon.  :'(

We recently went through quite a ringer on home inspection and purchase woes. We close this coming Monday.

See what the sellers are willing to do. It's their ugly baby. If they want someone to adopt it, they need to fix what's wrong.

Ah, but the other moves of you and those was in the company of me(n). I still have not recovered from the Gaelic Warrior's move down the street. Stupid parade and tarantula.

When my parents and I moved from Arkansas to Mississippi back in 1990, we didn't use a moving company. It was very much a daunting task, but we managed to do it.

We should have moved ourselves: the moving company damaged thousands of dollars’ worth of property, from furniture to heirlooms.

Document it and raise the issue with the company.
