Chaos and Crunch Time!
Here we are, 9 days away from our move out date, and last night we got an email from our mover stating that they were CANCELLING our job.
We were meant to have a 4 man, 2 truck move that was booked through AnyVan in the UK, and the sub-contractor company cancelled because ONE of the men is in the hospital thus leaving us totally in the lurch!
When I asked why the other 3 men couldn’t continue on and do the job that we had booked, we were informed that they had never worked in Europe before, only the man in the hospital had. What??? Why did they even accept the quote???
We have given notice on our apartment and our garage, set the cut-off date for the utilities, and we HAVE to be out of here on the 30th of the month. So much for being organised and orderly when someone ELSE can throw your whole life into chaos by cancelling a scheduled international move.
Can’t wait to hear from AnyVan on Monday since (a) they have our pre-paid deposit and (b) their feedback form is RIGGED to never allow negative feedback! Yes, I will certainly keep all of my readers posted.
I’m typing this in the middle of the night because I can’t sleep. (sigh!) Wonder why…
Send us some happy-shiny thoughts because we certainly need them right now whilst we try to find another mover to step in with 9 days notice.
