Heavy lifting no deterrent

  • Print

I purchased an elliptical exercise machine from Canadian Tire that weighed nearly 200 pounds. My brother was going to pick it up and carry it up to my fourth floor apartment for me.

I stopped in to pay for the machine and discovered that it would fit in the back of my vehicle with the seats down. I was not able to lift it so a couple of staff members carried it to my vehicle for me. I figured I would leave it in the back of my vehicle until my brother could come by and bring it upstairs in a day or two.

When I arrived home, I opened the back of my vehicle to see how heavy it was when a young man came and asked me if he could help me. I thanked but said it was very heavy, almost 200 pounds. He said that he would go and get his father and they could carry it up to my apartment for me.

He got his father from the next apartment building and they carried all the way upstairs for me. I did not get their names, but I wanted to. I know they live in the apartment complexes on Quail Ridge Road.

Thank you so much for your help. It was much appreciated.
