Almost Every San Diego Moving Company Has Banded Together & Refused To Move Chargers To LA
When it was announced that the Chargers were ending their 55-year relationship with the city of San Diego and head to Los Angeles, it was met with disdain and anger from former Chargers fans who came out in droves to give back their Chargers apparel and memorabilia.
Some threw eggs, while others burned things, and according to Mediaite, they are not the only ones who are mad about this situation.
Moving companies in the San Diego area have banded together in an effort to not help the Chargers move anything to Los Angeles—even going so far as to create a website so others will join them.
“Apparently, local moving companies in San Diego are none too thrilled with the move either. And many of them have now banded together to say that they will refuse to help the team with the physical logistics of their move.
The companies (24 are listed as of Tuesday morning) have started a website, wewontmoveyouchargers.com, in which they state their formal protest to the Chargers’ move.
“We decree, henceforth, that we shall unite as a perfect union of professional movers in agreeance to not aid the San Diego Chargers’ move to Los Angeles,” read the statement on the website.
Eight Los Angeles moving companies are also listed on the site.”
Ryan Charles, the head of sales and marketing for HireAHelper who helped come up with the gimmick, told San Diego NBC affiliate KNSD about how it came to be.
“We were just sitting there thinking about the physical move of the Chargers,” Charles said. “We were thinking we would not want to be a part of that, having been born and raised here and being a lifelong Chargers fan.”
Charles added, “It’s almost like the last line of defense. We were making this last statement of loyalty to the San Diego Chargers.”
I’m 100% sure the team can afford an out of town moving company to get the job done, but it’s nice that people are sticking together as one as they get ready to say goodbye to their beloved football team.
