The Travels & Adventures of Flog-It Removals.

Welcome to the Flog-It blog. Here we will post comments and details of our travels hopefully before, during and after we are on the road as well as general observations from while we are just out and about locally.

Nothing is ever easy.

 After more hassle than I could really take, finally today I got the keys for access to an apartment into which we need to deliver a couple of cubic meters of boxes that were transported down by us last week. Trying to get these keys out of the management company has been like trying to get Black Absinthe out of a diesel pump and in the end was it worth it? I unloaded the goods out of the big truck and put them into the ice cream van because the big one hits the floor on the access to the apartments and I can't afford to fix the fuel tank again. Then I drove to the door and parked up, most apartments are empty at this time of year so I was not in the way at all and unloaded the goods into the entrance way. Then I nipped inside, saw the lift was there so loaded almost the whole lot into the lift, shut the doors and ran up to the first floor and called it. It never arrived? I ran back down, no lift? Where the ****? I called it again, lots of noise, where is it? I ran back to the first floor and heard a noise down below... Oh no.. Back down I went just in time to hear the doors closing and a new journey being started upwards. Anyway, finally I pinpointed the lift and carried everything further than I would have if I had just carried it in the first place. All goods safely outside the front door I unlocked it and... Water!! Oh please just shoot me now!! Just inside the front door was a dehumidifier working away dumping its load straight onto the bathroom floor and gradually flowing into the hallway. Luckily there was a mop and bucket to hand in the kitchen so for the next few minutes I became Mrs. Mop, cleaned up and switched off the machine, and then finally delivered the goods into the house and locked up again.  Of course I informed the owners all about it once I got back home. Tomorrow I have to re-secure the rest of the load in the big van ready for its journey down to Alicante on Saturday which will hopefully go much better. But rest assured that no matter how it goes, it will be another story.
