This Wednesday, the movers arrive to start packing up all of our worldly possessions. The move is all taken care of by the Embassy, which is fantastic & something of which I am incredibly appreciative. HOWEVER, if the Embassy wasn’t arranging movers for us, I know exactly which company I would be hiring.
The term you see in Mexico is “fletes y mudanzas“, which loosely translates as freight and moving. In addition to household moves, you’ll see guys with fletes y mudanzas signs outside of stores (especially those selling furniture & other large items) who will be happy to help you get that new treadmill home to serve as a clothes drying rack.
While I feel this particular company is making a rather bold claim (to be the “Transport of Jesus Christ”), I nonetheless appreciate their ambition. And since marketing helps me decide, clearly I would pick Jesus’s movers over someone whose claim to fame is, say, moving flowers.
