I am new in town and need someone to help me move a washer and dryer. Where I lived in Georgia, there would always be some guys sitting out front of the home depot waiting for someone to come pick them up. Is there a place I can find someone to help me? Any recommendations?

Thanks

Welcome to the boards and the area. Not sure where you can find that kind of help, other than looking in publications like iwanna etc. What part of Georgia did you move from? Just curious.

I don't know anything about them, just saw them on Upstate Perks yesterday, but Chore Solutions sounds like they would handle this type of job.

I moved from just north of Atlanta, but just about any suburb of Atlanta has that kind of labor available. In places there would be 15-20 people waiting for work.

Ahh, ok. The Atlanta area is much more populated, so maybe thats the difference. I wish I knew more to help you with this. Someone on here is sure to know of someone.

OMG! Thank gawd they aren't doing that at the HD up here! They do it in Miami where I'm from and I HATE IT! I stopped going to HD and would rather go to Lowes where they don't allow them to migrate there. I thought they only did that in Miami. I don't know why HD allows it, but it's been happening for years and has gotten worse over time. Sometimes there's 20-30 men loitering around the parking lot. They don't speak a lick of English down there and they really look like unsavory charachters. I surely wouldn't pick up anyone from anywhere like that. I pray this never happens up here. With probably most of these people being undocumented illegal aliens people are taking a huge risk employing people like this and in this fashion. Anything happens, police are going to be hard pressed to find the person you picked up off the street. Find someone that has references, that has a home, that someone knows. Don't take a risk that doesn't need to be taken.

I don't like that I can't go to a HD and feel safe. INS needs to swoop down every couple of weeks at HD, that would take care of the issue, I think. Just my 2 cents.
