Civilized help for light moves.
If you call Housing Works to have them pick up your furniture, there is a good chance they will send Frank Vogel and his partner. When I met him a few months ago, I asked him right away if he was for hire, and he said, sure! Specializing in light moving (small numbers of furniture that will fit in a van, and not a whole apartment) for 30 years, Frank calls ahead, shows up on time, and is gone in a flash. It is also nice to know that he has Housing Work's endorsement.
