Look we’ve all been there: you just found the dining table of your dreams and all you brought to the store was your bicycle or Mini Cooper.
There are times when you’re just not equipped to move the big things around. These are the times when you should call a moving company like us and let the pros with the pro trucks and gear do the heavy lifting.
Sometimes it isn’t economical to pay a moving company’s hourly minimum for one piece of furniture, but having flexibility in your timeline can often help. For example, I have a 3-hour minimum for most jobs, but if a client can schedule a single-piece move after a job that is already in the neighborhood, I can usually accommodate the job for 1 hour’s labor or less.
Other times, when it just has to be done right and done on a certain day, even the mover’s minimum charge is a great value compared to the perils and potential costs of inexperienced people moving heavy and large items without proper equipment or the right vehicle.
I’ve complied a few photos from around the web and on the roads of people that decided to buck the establishment, disregard the physical limitations of everything, and find a way to get it there come hell or high water. These are the brave souls who gambled with their lives and the lives of other drivers just to save a couple dollars. Don’t be these people, but enjoy these photos and maybe share with a frugal friend who has attempted or even accomplished some of these dangerous moves. Sorry in advance for the potato quality of the photos. Many of these were snapped from behind the wheel.
