We'll be moving three pieces of furniture, plants, weirdly shaped items and lots of art from one house to another (12 minutes away) to get ready for a moving company to do the rest. We have one mover already and just need a spare set of hands.
I'm moving furniture including a King size Tempurpedic mattress along with bed frame which is all very heavy. Also 2 love seats, full size iron bed with mattresses, a few occasional tables, 2 wingback chairs and some delicate antiques and artwork.
Sweepers would pick up, transport and transfer into our house. The items include: 3-4 lightweight furniture pieces (1 child wooden 4-draw dresser - lay flat down on truck, 1 nightstand-lay flat on truck upside down and 2 wingback chairs-lay on their side).. The wing-back chairs may not even come on this trip, still waiting for a decision. Either way its a light trip.
I am moving from a tiny apartment to a slightly larger, but still tiny apartment. I can handle moving everything except my bed. I need help moving and transporting an Ikea futon. My guess is the whole project will take less than an hour, I'm moving just a few miles away.
