So far I have had 2 moving companies bail on me after giving me estimates – 1 said they were no longer going that direction and the other all of a sudden told me that I could not get my stuff until the end of July, even though I was moving July 1 into my new house. Ugh. I have 2 more companies coming tomorrow to give me estimates and if these guys screw up, it looks like I will be moving myself, which is exactly what I did not want to have to do. Sure, it’s cheaper…but in all seriousness, it’s just too much work. Guess we will see what happens in the next couple of days!
