Unpacking .... BLECK!!!!
We are alive!!! Buried alive in boxes, that is..... LOL
I have a little rant coming up....
The movers.... ARGH!!!! They managed to ruin 3 of my book shelves, break The Hubby's desk and lose one of The Hubby's DVD shelves.... AND we can't do a thing about it because they were all made of pressboard. Nice.... ARGH!!!!!!
Not only that BUT they were REALLY late, like a whole DAY late. I started getting those Funny Farm feelings again....
When the movers finally got here they were really nice and seemed very horrified that so many of my shelves were destroyed... They blamed it on other guys. I guess it could have been. At least 3 different sets of people handled our belongings. SIGH....
Then the company tried to charge The Hubby's boss too much. When The Hubby signed the papers on moving day, there were no charges listed, just a documentation of our stuff. Then miraculously the charges showed up afterward. We have the original set of papers to prove this. Just CRAZY!!!!
Some advice, if you are hiring movers go with a BIG company. One that has been in business for many, many, many years. Stay away from the small, recently in business guys. I usually don't say that. I am all about small businesses but I think this is one of those times when you just have to go with the established, good reputation guys.
SIGH.... I need new shelves. I think The Hubby is going to commandeer one of book shelves. SIGH.....
On the bright side (you always need to find one), we are loving the house and the city. There are definitely some rooms that need painted (the kitchen is neon green) and I am itching to get started on that but I need some order in the house first! Wish me luck! ;)

I know how those movers can be-I'm a military brat who moved almost every year during my childhood. The movers were famous for losing stuff and breaking stuff! Though I will say I kind of wish we had movers when we moved from one town to another nearby here a few years back-we broke quite a bit of stuff and we could only blame it on ourselves! HA HA!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're liking your new home!
LOL! I guess I should just be grateful that we didn't have to do it all ourselves. ;)ReplyDelete
I am glad to hear from you. It is good that you are happy with the house and area. A God thing, for sure. Blessings.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Regena!!!!!!! :DReplyDelete
So sorry about your broken stuff!! I'd be leaving a review about the company somewhere. People need to know when they have good and bad experiences, so you know who to watch out for. I hope your kids help you unpack!ReplyDelete
Yep, I am definitely going to leave them some bad reviews. GRRRR!!!!!!!
I'm sure you've replaced your bookshelves by now, but I found mine at Goodwill. They're a matched set, practically new and priced to go! I always check there when I go. I may not "need" more, but if I see them, they're coming home with me.ReplyDelete
Nope, I haven't replaced yet. I will definitely try Goodwill. The one closest to us didn't have any but there are several throughout the city and I will check them ALL if I have to!! LOLReplyDelete
