Need moving help

I need moving help.

Here’s the scoop: My grandparents are moving into an assisted living place. Originally Gramps wanted to hire movers, but he got back the estimate today and it was thousands more than he expected. The actual move is one bedroom and one living room worth of furniture. They are leaving the second bedroom and the kitchen out. I need 3 to 5 people to help with the move, either with loading or unloading. Pizza and beverages (at a minimum) will be provided. I’ll probably have a pie or two too.

Here’s the catch: It’s next Wednesday the 20th. Short notice and not a weekend. But even if you can only spare a few hours in the evening, we could use the help.

I’m expecting loading to be early afternoon (noon to 3pm) and unloading to be evening (4 to 6 pm ish).

So, can you help?

Edited to add locations: Moving from 6535 Seaview Ave NW (by Shilshole Marina west of Ballard). Moving to 12509 Greenwood Ave (Ida Culver House in Broadview).

I can help, with both loading and unloading, but I need to hitch a ride with ya. Would that work?

Totally!

Done and done. Email me when you want me to meet you where and I'll make it happen.

Its possible I'm going to be free that afternoon. I have an appointment that I'll be done with at 1, but I need to find out if my boss expects me to return to work or not. I'll check with her tomorrow and get back to you.

If I can make it, should I see about borrowing Raven's car? It holds a surprising amount of stuff, given its size.

We'll have a good sized truck, but one never knows if an additional vehicle will prove useful or not.

Ah, I am well acquainted with Ida Culver Broadview. They offer a lot of extra curricular stuff, and folks seem to enjoy living there. Are they going to the actual AL bldg, or just the retirement apts? I most likely have to work next Wed.

AL but they won't use AL services for a bit. Mostly so gram will be able to adjust.

I think it's good that this is a planned move vs being done via crisis. Residents are pretty friendly and welcoming, and I hope they transition well.

It's only a step below crisis. But it could be worse for sure.

A step below and a planned move is better than what I often see happen. Definitely a better way to go.

I get finished with school stuff mid-afternoon and could catch a bus to near your place, then ride over for the unload. But I can't eat things with tomatoes (acid problems), so no pizza for meeee.

Unfortunately, I probably won't be home between load and unload.
amaranthyne From: amaranthyne Date: January 13th, 2010 05:52 am (UTC) (Link)
ah. Well, I can probably take a bus in the direction of where you'll be in the meantime. Offer still stands!
gkr From: gkr Date: January 13th, 2010 05:55 am (UTC) (Link)
I'll take you up on it. It's the #5 that goes out to Ida Culver House. We can feed you (with something besides pizza if you like) and get you home.

I am off work at 3 or so and live up north so I can help with the unload if you still need people.

I'm in what time?
gkr From: gkr Date: January 15th, 2010 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm expecting we'll have the truck around 11 am and load up starting around noon.
