Who’s the ‘most wonderful, caring mover’?By Eric Anders • Jun 1st, 2012 • Category: FEATURED STORIES, Ordinary Movers - Exceptional Moves
A new 'Ordinary Movers, Exceptional Moves' feature has been added in RELO Roundtable's left sidebar on the front page after "Grateful Mom" wrote asking how to locate the "most wonderful, caring mover" who helped her eight year-old son.
Apparently the boy was playing with a buddy when he started having a grand mal epileptic seizure.
The driver of a white(ish) moving van operating in her neighborhood stopped his truck in the middle of the road at around 4:15 Tuesday afternoon, instructed his crew to attend to the frightened friend and see if he could help locate the parents.
He then removed the boy's glasses, calmly moved him to the grass, rolled him on his side and sat with him until the tremors subsided.
According to a neighbor who witnessed about two-minutes of the episode, the driver told her he was laid off from his EMT job before he got into the moving business.
The movers stayed until the kid's mother arrived but left before she could even thank them or get their names, company name or truck ID number.
Please contact me if you know of a moving company operating a white or light gray three-axle straight truck that might have been operating on or near Latrobe Street in Parkersburg, West Virginia (zip 26101) on Tuesday, May 29th.
I'd also appreciate learning about any other similar acts of civic service, extreme kindness or unselfish personal fellowship displayed or exhibited by front-line moving and storage professionals everywhere.
Contrary to what's usually depicted by mainstream media and communicated at popular trash-your-mover websites, this industry has a lot of silent heroes we should all proudly recognize and honor everyday.
Hopefully the rapid growth of social media and micro-publishing will help us let the world know how many!
