best that you can hope for. 6 hours unloading the truck doesn't seem too terrible depending on how much you have. We helped my friend move last summer with a whole bunch of people and it was a 12 hour deal.

They weren't paying for any more gas than they had to, so they shut it off when the owner called to take the utilities out of their name. I've noticed the streets here are similar... They keep adding layers of asphalt but never seem to scrape any off. (Why? That would cost money.) That means the... more
But the previous owners didn't take it out of their name, we transferred the utilities to us when either we moved in or went under contract. I forget exactly when. Either way, there wasn't a point where one party wasn't still paying for the utilities during the purchase/transfer. Streets here are... more
