On Sunday, June 26, uShip joined local moving companies for the first annual Movers' Olympic Games in Austin.
Throughout the 100-degree afternoon, teams of local movers competed in different events to earn points toward medals and cash prizes sponsored by uShip. The event was organized by Craig Budreau, a veteran mover and author of "Your Move."
Among the events, moving olympians hauled large items up and down an outdoor staircase and carried heavily-weighted boxes across a field. In keeping with the realities of moving jobs, movers had to dodge over and around obstacles throughout the competition.
