Need to move? Go by bike!

These guys crossed my path as I was riding to work. I have to say I was quite impressed to see the loads they were pulling (in very low gear, evidently).

I gave them a "felicitations!" and they seemed psyched. I thought they were just some crazy individuals, but then I saw the words "Déménagement Myette" painted on the side of the trailer. A quick web search turned up their website. It's a full-on bike moving company, started by an idealistic, environmentally-minded entrepreneur. They will also come and pick up heavy and bulky refuse and take it to the ecocentre. A great idea and I wish I had known about them back when I did my hand-truck move (I would have still done all the hand-truck sized stuff myself, but would have hired them instead of the truck we got for the all the big furniture I couldn't do on my own).

Has anybody had any experience with them? If you do choose to hire them, let me know how it works out!

That reminds me of those cool bikes the guy who runs the blog copenhagenize talks about all the time, the cargo bikes... I wish I had a reason tp buy one of these...
