Even under the best circumstances, moving can be extremely stressful and exhausting. It is always nerve-racking when you are moving your entire life in a truck, and earlier this month, 27-year-old Amber Schonhoft had the worst thing that could happen during the moving process, happen during her move to Denver.
Schonhoft was moving to Denver from Indianapolis and her U-Haul trailer was stolen. The trailer contained all of her belongings, which is estimated to be worth roughly $15,000 and included furniture, electronics, and various valuables.
“It hurts. You feel violated, people shouldn’t feel that way,” Schonhoft said.
Trying to make the best out of a horrible moving experience, Schonhoft’s friends and family are giving her clothes and her new roommate in Denver is trying to help as well. Her family has even started a Go Fund Me campaign, which can be found here.
Denver movers, in cooperation with the Better Business Bureau, urge anyone who is moving in or out of Denver, to do their research before hiring a moving company. Also, even if you think you can handle driving a rented moving truck, in order to potentially avoid theft, hiring a full service moving company could help you avoid a moving mishap like Schonhoft experienced.
