I hired Bookstore Movers on the advice of a friend for one reason only: to move my (prodigious quantity) of vinyl. You can’t stack vinyl, or it warps. Four out of the five guys they sent showed up on time, and heard me specify: DON’T STACK THE VINYL.
The fifth guy from Bookstore Movers, who professed to be a music lover, told them it was okay to stack them “as long as they’re flush” and when I walked in my living room, the vinyl boxes were stacked three deep. So I’m looking forward to years of finding bent or busted records from this move.
The guys were nice enough, but they showed up at my new place almost thirty minutes after I did (and I left after them), and one of them walked up eating some fresh hot fries. At 250 bucks an hour. Give that to the guys hanging out at the U-Haul lot, believe me they’re motivated to work.
