I think that most people back home generally bribe their friends with pizza and beer to help them move and if you are a friend with a truck, you definitely are bribed, heavily!. They load up their vehicles, take it to the new place and unload. If there is an elevator, then things can be complicated/slowed down. Here, when we moved into Seoul, we had to pay an ‘elevator use fee’ for moving. About $75 too! Ridiculous. Lesson learned, don’t tell them you are moving and do it any ways. That’s what previous people have done. Mind you, it’s a little hard with the amount of stuff that we have. Need to get rid of things. In any case, for those that move into apartments that are more typical, this is how it’s done.
