Decisions decisions decisions

Now that we finally know what our story is, it's time to make some choices, we are going to bring the kids with us :-)

Over the past few months we've had 4 different moving companies come through, point out what we plan on taking, they somehow tally all that up and give us a quote. All along we have been steadfast in decision to bring our couches. They are the only furniture that we bought new, and they are comfortable.

Here is where the issue is, I was surprised to find out that all the movers said we should bring a 20 foot lift, other than the couches we don't have that much stuff. One of the movers said that the couches are so big that we couldn't take anything smaller and fit it all in. Nat wondered if it would make sense to leave the couches, and then the lift will be much smaller and we can take the money and buy couches in Israel, and hopefully we will save a lot of money. We may end up selling one of the pieces ( we have a 3-2-1 setup) because I've been told that Israeli apt. may be smaller then my house.

I talked to one of the moving companies today and they didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but they will send a new quote.

How big of an apt do you plan on getting? Like, how many bedrooms do you want? That will tell you how big your living room will be. We have a 3 bedroom apartment right now, and we have a 3-2-1 set also. I can tell you that it barely fits, and the room is tight. Unless you're planning on renting a 90 or above sq.m. apt, there is a chance you won't be able to fit all the couches in the apt.

Of course, if you get an apt. with a storage room, you can just put whichever couch(es) that don't fit in there. How much money would you be saving by taking a smaller lift?
