Moving Insights

Seeing how much crap I have to move down into storage from my apartment, I caved and decided to get a “hand truck” from Canadian Tire.

I called ahead first to see if they had any in stock; the girl on the phone didn’t know what a hand truck was, and before I could tell her it was also called a “dolly,” she had called half the store over to the phone to ask them if they carried hand trucks. Finally somebody figured it out, and I drove over and picked up their $40 600-lb dolly.

This thing is awesome. Instead of breaking my ass carrying boxes of books down the elevator one-by-one, I’m whippin’ ’em down four at a time, no lifting involved, thanks to the modern wonder of the wheel and lever. I can’t believe I didn’t buy one of these things for my first three moves.
