Jon Freeman De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1197* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 09 Sep 21

There's not been many moves with us and I don't remember any major problems but the moves (from Kent and to Norfok) from the second house we had in N Wales were a bit tricky.

I think in both cases, the removal companies decided (quite believably) a full size furniture van would not make that last bend so the moves involved loading/unloading with a smaller van for the last few 100yds.

One thing I believe more than one removal person cursed was mum's old round trough. It's not that big (say 18" diameter) and looks as if it may be made of sandstone but, whatever it is made of, it's very heavy for its size.

Just adding a PS and a slight correction having checked with mum. I don't remember this and wasn't around on the day of the move - another brother was with her - but I gather a wardrobe was left behind with the last move. Mum say's the removal people said they couldn't get it down the stairs. Apparently, they couldn't answer how they supposed it got up there but still refused to carry it.
