We recently moved house and had a bunch of friends who helped. But after they left we still had to sort out some of our junk that needs to be thrown away/sold/given away.
As I was alone at home this morning, I made a little plan to move these massive bookshelves by myself.
I constructed a combination of the normal stand-up moving trolley and a cheap little cart that my wife used years ago when she distributed pamphlets for a little extra income. The bookshelf was just too big to be pulled along with the blue trolley.
This is the bookshelf standing upright in the trolley, before I lowered it down on it’s side.
My next move was to lower it on it’s side so that the wheels still support one end. Now I stuck the little cart underneath the trolley’s other end, and tied a rope to the end.
Now it was easy to pull the massive piece of wood all the way around the house. Too easy.
