The couple offered to pay more than $2500 for moving services—as long as the contractor is comfortable wearing their birthday suit to the gig.
Recently, a naturist couple was on the hunt for a moving professional. But they had a unique request that has left the internet open-mouthed.
According to a job advert they posted online, they were only seeking a removal driver comfortable doing the job while naked.
Yup, you read that right!
What's the catch? The couple was willing to pay a whopping $2,500 for the job.
The couple reached out to delivery, removals, and transport marketplace, Shift, with their eyebrow-raising request.
But due to 'operating policies,' the staff at Shift refused to post the couple's request on their website.
However, they accommodated the couple by sharing the appeal on their blog instead.
Shift wrote in its appeal post:
"Since opening our doors in 2017, we've seen our fair share of unique and bespoke requests. And we're pretty much always able to [fulfill] them."
"However, we recently received a job which we need your help to complete."
"We'd like to stress that being an experienced mover isn't a requirement for this particular job. As long as people have access to a large van and can lift heavy furniture, we urge them to apply!"
They also shared screenshots of the actual conversation with the couple to make the readers understand the request's essence.
In that conversation, the wife mentioned that they were planning to move because of her husband's work.
She also said she wanted a removal worker to drive them around 50 miles to their new home.
The wife added:
"[Normally] we don't expect other people to follow our traditions."
"However, since this mover is going to be inside our house and coming into contact with our belongings, we'd feel more comfortable if he could mirror our practices."
While Shift was unable to fulfill the contract, the team offered to help find the 'right person' for the job.
The company also said they 'would pass all details from interested movers to the couple.' The couple would then choose the candidate of their choice.
Speaking about the offer, Shift founder Jacob Corlett said:
"Of course, this is quite a unique request."
"However, if this goes well, and we see demand increase following this appeal, then there's no reason we wouldn't look at turning it into a fully-fledged service."
Getting paid more than $2500 to move somebody's stuff is a pretty good deal. But stripping could be an issue for some people.
However, if you don't mind taking your clothes off in front of strangers, this could be a fantasy gig!
