Roofing Gear For Moving Day?


I'm moving about a van's worth of boxes up to my attic today in 99% humidity. Total bummer.

Then I had an idea.

Could I use that little gas powered sled that roofers use to whip bundles up the ladder onto the roofer to power this stuff up my staircase without having to carry every blessed box? Sure, it would take 30 minutes to set up, but I gotta believe it would save time.

Anyone ever done this? It seems too irresistible to not try.

Cardiovascular exercise is a good thing, especially for a young man such as yourself.

Now if it was my boxes and my attic....

I'm fine with cardio, but man, not today. I spent the whole stupid humid day pulling wires and doing other assorted dumbness into my house. I don't need to be moving boxes at 4pm. This sucks.

I huffed up 60 bundles of shingles to my garage roof a few months ago. I asked several roofers if they had a laddervator I could use. Nobody had one, but one of them did let me use his Equiptor trailer. Was able to boom them to the edge of the roof, and carry them from there. Took about an hour, but saved me about 400 bucks.

Fvck that. I like money but I'll part with it in a hurry when it comes to making anything with a roof easier. Same for moving.

If I ever move again, I will drop 10k of the asking price if everything can stay. I'll take the wife, kids, vehicles, and machinery, everything else is theirs.

For 75 bucks or so, I get it loaded. I hate shucking shingles almost as much as insulating.
