We all know there are certain things customers should keep with them at all times: Valuables, like jewelry, important documents and personal records, irreplaceable items like heirlooms and wedding photos and more.
Well, we can now add ashes to the list.
“The movers were literally like they were throwing footballs they were throwing the boxes and I was so stressed. The lead mover said to me somewhere throughout the boxes coming in, he said I think I might have ruined your sand collection,” said Gerson.
On the upside, there are a few lessons to be gained, for all the good people out there who are getting ready to move. Besides making sure you hire qualified movers, anyway.
- If you are going to complain about your movers throwing your boxes, it will be your word against theirs. So take a quick video. If you don’t have a phone on you start shouting something like, “Help, United Airlines is trying to kick me out of my house!” and people with phones will appear out of nowhere and record the whole thing.
- Don’t pack your father’s or anyone else’s ashes in a box like they’re part of your sand collection. Aside from the possibility of them getting lost, if the truck catches fire it’ll be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
- If you absolutely have to pack an urn full of ashes, for Pete’s sake, tape the lid shut!
