Go Fetchit is a new service I tried out the other day which runs like an Uber service for delivery and pickup of items. I needed to get rid of two appliances and lumber materials to be taken to the dump. We use Uhaul for our Staging service of ( our Real Estate family business) on a regular basis. But with Uhaul you need to get help with the lifting, rental of the truck, insurance on the truck and kilometers and gas for the truck. These are the fixed costs. So when I needed to get rid of the items already mentioned I wanted a simpler way of doing it minus all the headaches of finding help and insurance etc.

I watched a recent TV program on Zoomers TV on Downsizing your home to a smaller premise. The show had a panel of advisors on it from the Real Estate industry, mortgage, and financial industry and people that do staging. This new service was promoted called Fetchit so I downloaded the App on my iPhone and figured out which of their services I needed. I chose Garbage and filled out what I was getting rid of and a quote of $200.00 came up. I entered the payment info and a photo of the items and posted the job and waited for a timed response of someone accepting the work. I was unsure when I posted what size of vehicle was needed and did not want to choose wrongly. Fortunately, they can be contacted online or by phone. I needed to contact someone when I noticed the there were 2 charges put through my credit account. I phoned and thankfully a person answered and informed that a hold was put on for the job posting but I would not be charged until the job was completed (apparently UBER does this as well) The second posting I inadvertently made when trying to figure out how Fetchit works.

The date and time I had scheduled the job for were emailed as confirmation and the Driver arrived and loaded the merchandise on his truck. No monies were transferred until the I opened the App on my iPhone, reviewed the completion and satisfaction and then entered the pay button.

My recommendation was favourable . You do need to get the items to the curbside and if loading takes longer than 5-10 minutes I believe there is an additional nominal charge. So I had everything ready an hour before he arrived which is good when you are in a Condo situation and can’t have stuff laying around for ANY LENGTH of time.

As trying out new things is sometimes difficult finding help is one thing and hoping they are suitable to the task is another. Then the trials and tribulations of getting a truck, driving a truck, plus gas, insurance and potential health and accidental occurrences, ala in all I found this service convenient and efficient in so many ways. Definitely worth a try. And when confirmed that payment was received I opened my Fetchit App and it showed the mistake of a second charge to my card was cancelled. Nice job , Fetchit! and thanks.

Visualizing your new home! Believe and you may have the winning offer

Here’s an experience , that if you believe may help you just get that winning offer.

Jack Cansfield, a best-selling author relays his own Mothers experience to us in The Secret. Do you believe in Manifest Destiny?

 She was buying a new house and several people besides her had put offers for this particular house. His Mother decided to use The Secret to make that house hers. She sat down and wrote her name and the new address of the house over and over. She continued doing this until it felt as though it was her address. She then imagined placing all of her furniture in that new house. Within hours of doing these things, she received a phone call saying her offer had been accepted. She was so thrilled, but it didn’t come as a surprise to her because she knew the house was hers. 

Well if you need help visualizing your dream home, try using our Interactive Floorplan that we have on every home we have listed. You can place your furniture, in all types and sizes, add your colours, view each room in 3D, from walls to windows, doors and make it yours. The software is called Floorplanonline and there is much more that you will find out when you start to play around with it. You can match the furniture with yours or try out a different type of sofa, coffee table, TV stand and see how it works in the space. And you can view your results it in 3D perspective rather than from the ceiling down. And print it so you can show the movers what’s going where. #wegetyoumoving
