They said it couldn’t be done.
“They,” in this case, happened to be my husband, Bob, and his friend, Rick. And what couldn’t be done? Moving a 103-inch-long vintage couch we got for a song down a narrow — and twisted — flight of stairs.
“What we decided to do, we’re going to dis-mantle the doorframe and that should give us an extra couple of inches,” Bob said. As he and Rick were getting their implements of destruction ready, I reached for the phone and called the professionals. “The professionals,” in this case, happened to be Chris Edgar and Ron Workman, two movers with more than 20 years of combined moving experience of getting the impossible done.
I explained my dilemma to Cheryl at Peasley Transfer & Storage. She sent the miracle workers on over.
Fifteen minutes later, the job that couldn’t be done was finished. No blood was shed, maybe a little sweat — but the most important thing, NOTHING was “dismantled.”
