EEK, Tek, you sound like us and my mom; tons of tools and collectible glassware. She's calling the sale lady and she's only moving two hours away. But, her glass collection fills a 15X20 room floor to ceiling. She was a dealer back in the day. Elegant glass.

I have an extensive Fenton milk glass collection that I am selling and consigning. Thankfully we're only talking about two dozen or so boxes.

Dh was a prop auto tech and we downsized him into one roller base cabinet 6X3X4 and one large rolling cart. Then there's my three story old Craftsman box.......

It's all gone now so I no longer have to be concerned with it. A relief in so many ways...

BTW, Mrs. Tek reminded me that we also pay a portion of the advertising fee, which should be minimal.

Tek, I spoke with mom and the estate sale lady gets thirty percent. What a relief!

Now she has to be out by the fifteenth of this month or she has to pay rent.

Scrambling to find a mover in South FL; please chime in here folks if you can recommend, TYIA!!!!!!!

My husband & I own a big house. It was originally two-family house but after having a series of tenants who didn't pay rent, trashed the place, etc. etc. we kicked them out and took over the entire house. So we took 2-5 room (2 bedroom) apartments & turn it into a 10 room (4 bedroom house) with more room if you include the basement. Not sure the square footage. We were content there even though there were a lot of things about the house that we didn't like. Then last year, I found a beautiful old Victorian in need of saving. We bought it. It is over 3,000 square feet-5 bedrooms. And it is only the two of us-and our 3 cats. So much for downsizing. And we are buying more furniture to fill the new house.

We used pods. Very reliable delivery and pickup so far. We used their reference service for packers, loaders, and unloading. The locals have been excellent. We did research them on Angies List, yelp, etc. We also found them to be cheaper than a moving company.

Right now we are at the point of having our second pod filled waiting for pickup tomorrow.

The Mayflower movers I used in Rochester gave me their contact in SoFL, A1A Moving and Storage. They delivered the tractor from Rochester to her house and they were great.

I keep mentioning Pods but it doesn't register.
