i hate moving

i'm sick of the sight of boxes. i'm sick of the smell of packing tape. the removal van cost twice what we budgeted for - apparently we bought a lot of furniture and accumulated vast amounts of shit in the last three years. the removal van knocked a drainpipe off the new place. it's been raining. the broken pipe makes a splattering noise outside our bedroom window. it also hit our garage door, which was a shitty tilt door in the first place and now jams.

gah.

on the upside, at least it wasn't 40deg when we moved. it's done. new place has air con. it's done. i didn't break myself too badly, although both removal guys hurt themselves. one guy dropped a box of books on his toe. i didn't check for damage - hell, if any books got bent i'll call that one a draw. other guy managed to put his entire leg down a little gap on the truck.

it's done.

I understand you... Moving is very often a headache. But i found out that moving truck and van rental prices are often seasonal, cheap rates can often be obtained in the winter months, that said you are always advised to book in advance to minimize your overall costs and avoid disappointment. Also ask the company offering man and van services about their charges so you know exactly what you are paying for. A lot of companies charge for mileage after a fixed allowance.
