I realise this is a strange one, but hoping someone can help.

Trustworthy person of moderate strength and medium-sized vehicle required.

I’ve recently (6 weeks ago) broken up with my boyfriend of 3.5 years and am looking for someone to arrange the exchange of our personal items. I don’t want to deal with him myself (too heartbroken- sad I know!). The task would involve you contacting him via email to explain that you are contacting him to arrange the exchange of our personal items, then actually picking my stuff up from him (St Kilda), I could then meet you at my house, or accept delivery at an agreed location.

I would provide you with a list of things you need to pick up, and you would then need to arrange a time with him via email to pick up the items from St Kilda- I would provide you with his things prior to this, so you can drop them off at the same time. I live in Hawthorn, but can either accept delivery from you at my house, or arrange to meet you somewhere. The items that are to be dropped off to him would be minimal, but I require that a portable air conditioner (quite heavy) be picked up from his house, along with a vacuum cleaner and other small household items.

In order to trust you with our belongings I would require some form of identification, and possibly an item to hold as security. It’s not like our things are worth a fortune, but I’m sure you can understand that this is a unique situation- and my trust is a little rattled right now.

Also, I would prefer he not know how we came to our arrangement, so would require that the airtasker just identifies themselves as an anonymous third-party hired to facilitate the exchange. You could even decide to use an anonymous email address with him, if you'd rather not use a personal account.
I would like the task handled with tact and efficiency, so if you think you can handle it, let me know!

I will pay $100 for the task and can arrange payment to the successful airtasker via cash or paypal on completion of the task.

Hahah thanks for the invite Mike L, but it might be a bit short notice to pick anything up today... The chosen AirTasker would have to arrange a mutually convenient time directly with my ex... So could be within the next week or so depending on availability.
Hi i would very much appreciate the task as im broke, I have a van for all the possesions and im a strong bloke with removals experience.
I can do it when ever you need it to be done.
I'm sorry to hear your heart broken but hearts heal and when the times right you'll find the right someone.
This is just the type of job I have been looking for on AirTasker. I would be happy to do this for you on Friday Erica. I will most likely enlist the help of a good friend of mine. Incidentally, he is about to demolish his house and is having drinks this Friday night to celebrate. You would be most welcome to join us for a few beers after we have delivered the goods.
