Moved! Also, commission sale!

by
All my stuff is moved to my new apartment! :) However... the movers ended up charging more than I expected.

I misunderstood when they said "One hour minimum charge, then you are charged by the quarter hour after that." So I figured it would take about an hour and a half and I'd be charged about $150. Instead, they charged for one hour before starting, and then charged for the 2.5 hours they worked, so I had to pay $350.

Ouch.

So I've decided to have a bit of a commission sale to try and earn back some of that money!

Doodles are still $5 each
Pinup style for $20 (normally $25, one character no background).
Regular style for $25 with additional characters for $15 each. (normally $30 with additional characters for $20, full background).

You can either pay upfront when it is your turn to be drawn, or half before I start and half when you see the lineart.

Please send an email to zeniawulfe@gmail.com if you are interested. No notes please.

Feel free to ask me any questions  you want in comments.

I'd complain about that.  Sounds like they just plain ripped you off.

Nah, I think I just misunderstood. Also, turns out that they drove in from about 45 minutes away (they are subcontracted through the company I contacted) so I am cool with it. I did have that amount of money set aside though. I just wish I didn't have to spend it all. Especially 'cause I have to cough up $375 for my per deposit.

Wait, they charged you for the time they spent driving from their pick-up point to your place?  That doesn't sound right.

There's a good lesson from that.

It's better to have friends help you move, than to have movers befriend your wallet.

Other than that. It's good to hear you got everything to your New house alright.
Hope nothing got broken.

XD I don't really have any friends... yet. But everything was moved and nothing got broken. Not even my already precarious computer desk.

I like the sound of the "yet" :)

In the last couple of years, I reckon I've helped people move home about once a month, on average. It's the modern equivalent of barn-raising: it brings communities together, helps build friendships, and shows you who your real friends are.

And in a year, I'm moving myself. I'll have no shortage of helpers, I think!

If they phrased it as you quoted, then yes, they ripped you off $100. But if you feel that they earned it, then fair enough.

Might be too late to do anything, about it, but no...the one hour minimum just means if the move takes less then that you still get charged for the whole hour. Charging you 1 hour extra above and beyond what they actually worked isn't a misunderstanding, it's fraud on their part. (I'm not trying to make you feel bad about this, and I apologize if I am, it's just this is just an example of how moving companies screw people. If your place was 45 minutes away from them they either needed to state a surcharge up front or refuse the contract. Putting it on you was scummy.)
