Careful, Diligent, and Thoughtful Worker
Conquered Our Mountain of IKEA Kits
We bought a bed with four storage drawers, two small chests, three large bookcases, and a desk from IKEA. When I felt panic at the thought of finding both the time and skill to assemble them all, my wife suggested looking for help on the internet. I searched for IKEA and assembly and Thumbtack asked for details. Within minutes Collin replied, asked for details and gave a bid. His questions were on point and his bid was reasonable. More than that he could take on the challenge that afternoon. Ready, willing, and seeming to be able.
He arrived on time with his tools. I showed him all the boxes and we spent only a few more minutes discussing the sequence that might make the most sense. He then set to work.
He was careful, diligent, and took no breaks. When it looked like there was too much to finish in one day, we sent him home at 8 pm with an agreement for him to return on the morning of the second day following. We were pleased with the progress that far. The next day, he called to tell us his other commitment had been changed and that he could resume work that afternoon. Sooner was even better.
He finished the job with great care and there is nothing I would have wished he did better.
