Moving the Cases in

Today was the last day of business for COMP USA.

I called them up to see if I could come pick up the cases and they said yes. We needed a professional electrician to unhook them, so we hired Greg who was out in Bellevue for a job anyway. He said it was pretty easy for him to do, and we were happy to hire him instead of a stranger. He had them unhooked in the hour it took me to drive from the store to pick up a Uhaul.

John almost couldn't make it, but decided to come out at the last minute since I had already rented the truck. While we were waiting for him, Heather and I loaded all the glass and hardware from the shelves into her car. We tried to move one by ourselves, but it was a little heavy for just she and I.

When John got there, we had a better time of it and loaded all 6 cases into the truck in less than 30 minutes. When we got to the house, we started the unloading process. Here's the truck after we did the first two or three. It was TOTALLY packed beforehand.

And into the house:

Including the drive, the whole process took us a little less than 2 hours. Not bad for 6 cases moved down a big dirt hill with only two people. Next stop, painting the living room and moving the cases in there!
