Today was the day they delivered my new washer and dryer! I think maybe I forgot to even blog about having gone out to purchase them? A couple of weeks ago we went to Best Buy and bought a new washer and dryer. They are soooo nice! The only problem is I think I need a degree in computer science to operate the darned things! I have my first load in washing, so we'll see if they come out clean. If not, I must have done something wrong!
The guys who delivered them were very nice. They had the COOLEST contraption for hauling in the new machines and hauling out the old machines. Instead of a dolly that you load them on and push they had these harnesses that they wore around their chests and shoulders. One harness for each man (requires 2 to operate) and then a strap connects them together. They had to squat down to get the strap under the machine and then they stand up and wa lah, the machine is suspended on the strap between them. It makes them lift with their legs and not their backs. I have never seen anything like it! They said it works great too! I don't know how well it would work if one guy is a lot taller than the other one? Not sure if you could adjust it according to different heights or not? I should have taken a picture of them with it on and carrying the machine. I would have if I had thought about it. I'm sure you would have been just as impressed as I was!
