the move that never was….

On Friday we were all set to move to Center City Philadelphia…

I had everything boxed up, ready to go and was so excited to set up shop in our new apartment. Seriously, I was bursting at the seams with excitement all day so pumped to settle down in our new home.

But then…our movers never showed up.

Yes, you read that right, our mover’s never showed. They called during the day, kept pushing the time back and back and back some more. Then before we knew it, our window to move that day had come and gone.

We were in our old apartment surrounded with everything to our name boxed up, furniture broken down and empty walls.

Clearly, it was a frustrating day (combined with 99* heat in Philadelphia).

As soon as we gave up on the move for the day, it was time for a drink.

Thankfully Charles’ parents live a hop, skip & a jump over the Ben Franklin Bridge in New Jersey so we have been staying with them since Friday.

We will be camping out at the in-laws until Tuesday as that is the next time available for us to do the move. This time we will be doing it ourselves,which is also another major bummer, but at least we know it will definitely happen on Tuesday!

Do you have a horrible moving story?

If its worse than your movers not showing up then please share!  I would love it if someone could trump that! 🙂

    That so stinks! You’ll be so happy once you move in, though. And welcome to CC; I’ve lived here for a year and a half and love it.

    That is HORRIBLE! Would you name the company or no? How about just a ‘rhymes with’ scenario like I use for my former retail job at “Lottery Yarn”?

    I’m moving this weekend too!

    Last time I moved, the movers packing my truck broke 2 lamps, a bedside table, and scratched up the wood on my sectional sofa. I was livid! I don’t spend money for movers for them to wreck my stuff.

    So sorry to hear they never showed! That’s just unforgivable! Good luck on Tuesday with your “frageelay” boxes. So funny!

    While my movers DID show up, i did have nightmares the night before that they wouldnt show. On actual moving day, they were late. Then they said they would take my furniture apart but showed up without tools. All of my stuff didnt fit in the truck so they strapped my $1000 bed frame to the roof of the truck and left a few things at my apartment. 4 hrs into the move, at $110 an hour, it starts to POUR. ON. MY. BED. The move took 6 hrs total, thanks to the rain.
    I got to watch from the window as they scrambled to take the bed down. Thank goodness i wrapped it in plastic.
    It was stressful. It was my first time hiring movers and probably the last. I would much rather do it myself, like i did the first time.

    That really bites about your movers. 🙁 So sorry that didn’t work out. I hope your move goes well on Tuesday. The pictures of your dog in the boxes is adorable!

    Sorry about what happened, but Jackson looks fine! Don’t worry, everything will turn up roses on Tuesday – drink lots of water that day – it’s gonna be HOT!
