NEVER a dull moment...

10 foot section of a HUGE sectional came 3 days early without warning. check.

scramble on a saturday at 11:00 am to find a local mover off load sectional from 75 foot semi. check.

too heavy for movers to manage so had to postpone for 2 days to get more movers. check.

movers show up monday morning - 2 men - and it doesn't happen. check.

scramble to find other moving companies who can make this happen. check.

my FAVORITE movers (who were slammed and could not help) happened to swing by red ticking
and found the door open. check.

happen to be on a big house move and have 5 guys with them on their lunch hour. check.

come to my rescue and get the monster into my client's house. check.







all is good. now i am home resting on my sofa... check.

ever had a day like this?



all images... red ticking. whew.

All I can say is I'm glad it's over. It made me tired! I was cheering for you :) I love it when things work out after so much craziness. Have a very relaxing night, Pam!!

wow. all that plus it was hoisted up thru an upstairs window? and it looks like one of those guys was even smiling! hope you are too, now.

red ticking said...

it was unreal... truly. they used all of their own body strength to pull and hoist... and not a stratch on the house... i am pooped. can't imagine how they feel!

Oh that is so funny...well not when you were going through it but it looks like the mover had a smile on his face and that all that counts...I am sure the owners are now enjoying the heck out of this lovely thing. Hugs to you sweet one. xoxo

Oh, yes I've had days like such. It makes us appreciate our rather normal days even so much more! The image of all the guys hoisting that sofa up made me think of the time I was in an apartment while a crane brought a sofa in through the windows that had to be professionally removed to bring in the sofa and then professionally re-installed...life in NYC 22 stories about ground level!!

WOW...everyone is happy now and it looks like you have a great crew there!

I watched a group hoist mine up and over the upstairs balcony of my house. It was both terrifying and amazing to watch! Hope you are relaxing on your new sofa!

we laughed about that yesterday... (after it was over)

my clients have 2 children another due in weeks and need an office, workout room, nursery and guestroom... so trying to make 2 rooms remaining into all of the above... so its getting tight... and she said...
i am not going to complain... not with this new addition!

if they move... the sectional stays with the house!

Holy smokes...you deserve the rest! I have had to take all the moulding off a door before. Not fun.
