How to move without a car

May 5th, 2008

I am moved into my home for the summer. It’s a nice big room on the second floor of a yellow house on Cherry St. It’s about three blocks away from a supermarket and within ten minutes of the Dal campus. It has a dishwasher, non coin-operated laundry and a big screen TV. It’s also one street over from where John is living.

However, moving in was quite a challenge. I had no car available as my parents are in Tucson. Residence kicked me out a week before I could move into my new place on the first. I was borrowing furniture from a friend, but the friend was leaving on the 29th. Luckily, John could move into his place a few days early, so we’d just walk all of my furniture and luggage to his new place and then move it to my new place on the 1st. Here’s our original plan:

Then it turned out that John would not be allowed to move things into his apartment until the 29th, and that my friend would be moving out on the 28th. She was also concerned about her furniture getting hurt by being carried several blocks. Fine. I stored some stuff in residence and at John’s place until I could move it into his place, and luckily my parents were friends with people who lived out in Clayton park. The furniture would be taken by my friend’s parents to Clayton park and then my parent’s friends in Clayton park would take my stuff to Cherry St. The plan was now as such:

The day that my friend was going to move out, another problem arose… her parents didn’t want to drive the furniture out to Clayton Park. I don’t think this was unreasonable, they had had a long day of moving. However, I had sent the address to them a week in advance. I compromised by storing all of the furniture and my luggage at John’s old bachelor apartment overnight, and moved it to his new place on the 29th when he moved. This change in plan was probably the most stressful day of the move. After that, it was easy to move my stuff from Shirley St. to Cherry St. Here’s what ended up happening. In the end, my luggage and furniture ended up going to two different locations before ending up where I wanted them, and John’s bachelor pad was pretty crowded for a night.
