So much for the PowerBook fund [Sep. 21st, 2005|08:29 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

Uh, so it turns out that the price that Door To Door quoted to me is way more than I thought it would be. Like, um, over three times more.

Now, I should point out that the customer service person I spoke with on the phone was quite possibly the most helpful and friendly customer service person I've ever spoken to in any situation, ever. We actually struck up a conversation, and it turns out she lives in Seattle, and she actually gave me her personal extension and told me to call her whenever if I needed anything. And it turns out that on the Portland end of things, instead of just dropping off my crate o' stuff, they're actually going to move my stuff off the truck and into the house for me, like actual full-service movers, because apparently that's just how it's done there. And they're going to store my stuff for free in the meantime. So, you know, all that kind of helps justify it.

But still. Ouch. Um, see you in the ramen aisle.

How much was it?
I have to figure out if I can feasibly move my stuff from Grinnell to Portland this winter, and I'm just looking around for options.

According to their website, "Zip Code 50112 is currently outside of our current service area." =( But you could always call them at 888-723-2404 and ask anyway. They'll need to ask you stuff like the date of your move and how much stuff you have.

I'm not looking forward to my inevitable move when I get another job for this particular reason.

Then again, not a lot of my furniture is my own, and I may just get to buy it all anyway.

Yeah. I've made it a life goal not to acquire too much stuff. I kind of like the fact that, aside from a suitcase or two, I must fit everything I want to bring with me in an 8' x 7' x 5' crate.
