Moving to Italy: Shipping Your Stuff, Part Two

I'll be the first to admit that the process of getting our stuff packed took a bit longer than we thought. It's not just packing -- it's going through every single thing and asking "store it? trash it? pack it?" We wanted to store as little as possible and it was really time-consuming to go through everything.

Seeing the truck pull up on Wednesday to wisk our stuff away was a huge relief (and also really exciting). It's kind of cool to know the next time we see our stuff it will be in Florence!

This second video is all about the final stages of packing. Initially, we planned to record more video at home, but got sooo busy with other stuff that we just ran out of time. Still, I think future movers will find this video helpful.

 

Interesting notes from the move...

1. The guy that drove the freight truck that picked up our boxes was one of the nicest people ever! He was so patient with us when we realized we forgot to tape freight bills to the boxes.

2. UPakWeShip emailed the next day to check to see how it went. I love low-key (but good) customer service.
