Moving Furniture

Hello all,  can I get some advice on how to get furniture delivered or moved from one place to another. I bought a bed from someone on koreabridge and need to have it moved accross town... Any suggestions/ phone numbers/ names of who to call and how to arrange for this to happen. Or even a place I can rent a truck to move it myself.

 


Looking for moving company suggestions in Busan

I'll be moving from Gwangan to Namcheon soon and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a moving company for me.

I'd like to hire someone to move everything for me but I've been quoted prices (as high as 1 million) to move the contents of my studio apartment.

I have a fair amount of stuff (bed, couch, table, bookshelves, and small nik-naks), but the prices I've heard don't seem to jive with information I've read about cheap moving costs.

Suggestions would be appreciated ^^

Thanks!


Need help moving a couch!

I bought a couch off Korea Bridge and was given a number for a man who could pick up and deliver furniture, when I called the number I was greeted by a man that did not speak English.

 

I have two weeks to move this couch and am needing help to do so..

 

does anyone out there know of anyone who provides such a service?  or do any strong manly men want to help a lost Canadian girl with lots of bacon, whiskey, and beer in her fridge to move a couch from one side of the highway in Gaegeum to the other??

 

Any help would be much appreciated!!

 

xoxo

Korean housing laws

I plan to move out of my officetel soon. I completed my 2 year contract in February and told the building's Budongsan that I plan to move on April 9th which is more than a months notice. He told me that I need to pay him 420,000 won to find someone to move in and I can't move out until someone moves in. He also claims this to be the law but I can't find this info anywhere on the internet. Could someone please let me know if I must pay him this fee.


Task Rabbit to the rescue!

Getting to Incheon airport is going to be easy cause my friend (and his car) are taking me there. But since I don't know anyone in Seattle, taking care of that end is going to be a challenge. Until I read about Taskrabbit in the New Yorker.

It's the new startup where there are "rabbits" and people who ask for things to get done. The "rabbits" are background checked people who sign up to take on tasks other people request. For example some tasks range from needing help assembling Ikea furniture to doing one's budget.

Day 3 : The Last Week


Maybe I will miss the warm sun rising over my little home here in Korea. It's warmth carrying it's way into my shoebox and warming things up from a cold night. You can watch the sun go past the sky by seeing the sun-rays go from one end of the wall to the other. It's funny because Tom has a little pattern he follows. Around noon he comes out of the covers, where he was slumbering, and heads to the sunshine. I've also noticed around 2:30 he likes a spot on top of my suitcases that sit in the balcony.

Packing Logistics

I've been spending the past 24 hours figuring out how to get all my stuff to Seattle without paying more than I should. I might have too much stuff to begin with, but I've been here for five years. I have summer and winter clothes to take with me, along with my art stuff. It piles up!

I did a "mock packing" yesterday to see if I could fit all my clothes in two suitcases and not be overweight. Turns out things were too close to the edge. The maximum weight is 23 KG and after I would add all my knick knacks and stuff it would have gone over. So I took out my summer clothes and put those in box, since it should still be mildly cold in Seattle when I get there. Thankfully I have a military friend who is kind enough to ship these boxes out to America. I believe this will be cheaper and faster than using the Korean postal service.

Getting Five Years of Stuff Down to Two Suitcases


 After five years here, stuff starts to accumulate. I'm talking about books, souvenirs, memorabilia, and just anything else I've held onto over the years. So I've been sorting things lately and making one big pile of "donate" and the rest is being packed into boxes to be shipped across the ocean. I found it the cheapest to send via "surface" or by ship. But the weight limit for each box is 20kg or 44lbs. So trying to meet these requirements is a little tough.

What Could Have Been and What Will Be

Yesterday I was busy in Itaewon checking in at the Chung Hwa Animal Hospital to have a chat and see what carriers they had for sale. It looks like the best option would be to buy Tom a sturdy carrier with plenty of room to curl up in. However, the one and only they had for sale was a bit out of my price range so I will be using Gmarket once again. Also I took care of ordering a name tag for Tom, which will include his name and my email address.
