Side note. For me a swivel wand eliminates a lot furniture moving since it can lay flat and get under so many items. Not everything, but a lot things.
Have you made a video of the swivel wand in action yet? with furniture,,,, and can we see the tabs you sell and what sort of Styrofoam blocks?
Roger that. I would like to get one from you in exchange for Prochem Ti Ergo. I have no problem with 1.5" tube , 4 jet would be my preference, but will settle for 2 jet. I believe it would be a fair trade. Don't worry, is not the same one I bonded about 1 year ago.Side note.

I agree with Rob on this one. Throughout our journey we've moved more furniture than we like to. Don't you hate when you have to move sofa carrying all of the miscellaneous items weighing half a ton?It's really hard to reach a consensus on everything going on in the house. Questions like: can you start working in the basement , my daughters are taking nap in bedroom upstairs.... are giving you an opportunity to adjust on the go. Our role is not only to provide great service, we have to be a diplomats, good listeners and over all, great human beings able to show a lot of empathy. Often times we're not rewarded for all we do....There's absolutely no benefit to moving furniture, it puts you at risk, more time on project and ultimately is a waste of time if the furniture is going right back. NOONE WILL SEE CLEAN CARPET UNDER THE FURNITURE. This isn't rocket science. Your house, your furniture, you move it before I get there. Understand it can't be in my way while cleaning and NO you can't move it back till the carpet dries. Have a ever lost a client over this policy. NOPE. Why make your life more difficult.
Randy you need a swivel wand man!The best solutions for beds and there are more than one, is to simply have the customer pull the mattress and box springs and put the frame on sliders if needed. Some beds simply cannot be moved and if the customer is not willing to at least do that I may not be able to help them. I will on occasion pull them out myself, clean under the bed and put them back, but that's pretty rare for me.
I also started insisting customers pull all the drawers out of chests and dressers if they're too heavy to easily be moved and blocked. Sometimes they decide they don't want that 500 lb. dresser cleaned under as bad as they thought. Another problem piece is china cabinets. I insist it is empty or I won't touch it.
I have a swivel wand for a number of years, but it's not a perfect solution IMHO. Sure helps a lot, but not every time. Often the area in bedrooms is too close quarters to bend down far enough for a swivel under a bed.Randy you need a swivel wand man!
Thank you for adviceYou can call up United and several other van lines and get a quote from each, if you want to go professionally. It all depends on how much furniture you've got, Couches, armchairs, and side tables galore! There are so many different pieces of furniture out there that it’s enough to make your head spin.
Or rent a UHaul from vpsmart.co.uk, pack it yourself, and drive north, getting a second person to drive the car. Or if you're alone, UHaul rents trailers to tow your car behind the moving van.
In either case, the cost of the move is tax deductible against your Canadian income taxes, assuming you're living in canada.
