Ask any mover about the best and worst part of his job and the answer will be the same... the customers.
Interaction with our clients can be the best and most interesting part of our day. We get to see people close up without a lot of the veils they put in front of others. Moving day usually means a big change in their lives and they are excited. Often times it is a move upwards and the client shares that joy with us through tips and good humor. Many times on smaller moves where the client is helping we share time and stories together. It is not uncommon to meet a new business connection, friend or even a girlfriend on the job.
On the other hand a stressed out client can be a nightmare. Many times moves are negative experiences for the client and moving day is the peak stress. Like any human sometimes they react to their problems by lashing out at others. The truth is that under the stress of moving day the customer is not always right and is quite often wrong ..

My bedroom set came from a dead rich guy estate move. He left so much money they just gave away his stuff. He had several houses, a Roll Royce in the garage, and the bedroom set was all green silk including drapes. I have never felt pillows so soft. They say he never really slept in it. My kitchen table was part of a complete house full of good stuff the divorcing couple paid me to take to the dump. The executive office chair in my office only came with a few shotgun pellets from when the slighted wife paid back her cheating husband at his office. My armoire was just too big to fit in the ladies locker and she had to catch a plane.
Another source of furniture is when we do major damage and have to replace an item. I have a lovely Italian marble table 6 feet long in my garden . Too bad it was once 10 ..
