This week’s featured member of the Cool Hand team is Samuel Berglund.
Sam moved to Brooklyn from his native land of Sweden in 2014 and following his passion for sailing, he is pursuing a career running boat tours.
Getting a captain’s license take time! So we’ve been lucky enough to have Sam on board and it will be sad to see him go!
When did you start working for Cool Hand, and what drew you to the position?
I started this summer. My wife told me about some really cool friends of her that were looking for help.
What was your first impression once you started working? Did anything surprise you?
I’m not going to lie, I expected it to be a group of disgruntled old men. But it turned out to be a fun group of people from different walks of life, with different view and experiences that they bring in to the day to day work.
What do you enjoy most about working in the NYC moving industry, and with Cool Hand in particular?
Working as a mover in New York is an experience that is hard to find anywhere else. Everything from places you get to see to people you get to meet. And the constant hustle to just move around in New York makes everyday different from the next.
What is your favorite place to eat in the city that you’ve discovered white out on moving jobs?
I am a big fan of New York pizza, and so far i haven’t found a bad pizza place.
You are originally from Sweden. What advice would you give to someone moving to NYC and looking for moving services in New York?
Well first of all call Cool Hand Movers ;). And second, don’t freak out from all the constant hustle that surrounds a move. New Yorkers are always helpful and even if it might seem impossible you’ll always make it with the New Yorkers around you.
