I will be moving a week from yesterday (on the 29th). I will have a large number of boxes and assorted containers of stuff. I will however also have the so-far namesless Object--the pump organ thing. (For those who helped me move it into my current apartment, take heart; it's much lighter once I take out the keyboard.) The largest piece of this thing is 53" x 49" x 24", which is just barely too big to fit any anything but the very largest of minivans.|
So does anybody have or have access to an enormous minivan, a pick-up truck or similar? I rented a Dodge Grand Caravan to move it before.
Alternatively, is there anyone else going to be moving around that time that would like to split the cost of renting a minivan from Enterprise? It's 54.99 a day for Yalies. If so, let me know now so I can make the reservation. I think I can also use this free upgrade I have lying around to get an even better deal.
Lastly, in the theme of this month, if anyone can be around to help me move, that will be much appreciated. I don't have as much stuff as redswami or emilymorgan, so it shouldn't take long, but it's still a hell of a lot for one or even three people. As per usual, dinner's on me.
PS My current apartment's on the first floor, and I will be moving into one of very few dorms at Yale that has an elevator. I'm moving in a day early, so the elevator shouldn't even be terrifically crowded. So don't worry about having to lift heavy stuff to the fourth floor. Yay!
Update: I will be allowed into the dorm starting at 4:00. Therefore, the plan: start loading the truck at 3:30, drive it over, unload. Depending on just how much of lisa_bee's stuff we move at the same time (this seems to me like a very good idea, though I don't know her plans), we can probably be done well in time for dinner.
(Budget is awesome! Thanks to you lovely people for recommending them.)
