Today I got a call from said removalist, saying that they can't do the move on the required days as they are already booked. HUH?? Why did they bother coming out for an inspection, and submitting a quote, if they couldn't do the job? I just don't get it. I was stunned. I put my head down on the counter at work and just stood very, very still. My boss came out & enquired if I was all right, and all I could do was laugh! She thought I was getting a bit hysterical. Must admit I felt that way.
Back where I started. The second company I rang last week also can't do the move on the required day. I rang another company today, and before asking them for a quote, I checked that they are available when needed. Yes, they are - so I had them pencil me in, subject to acceptance of the quote.
I have visions of myself sitting on the footpath next Thursday, my possessions at my feet.
