Fourth round

Post by Stevenloan » Tue Jul 02, 2019 1:45 am

"This was my third time using Master Movers! I first found them as a recommendation from a friend, but they were so wonderful to work with that I've always gone back to them! To schedule the move, you call Conrad and explain how many rooms, stairs, etc and he will help you figure out how many people to send and give you a time and price quote. The movers are always prompt and they are just as motivated to get the job done as you are!

Master Movers helps me look forward to the move because I know that all of the heavy lifting is taken care of! (Literally and Figuratively!!)

I only have good things to say about them -- professional! careful with my belongings! and extremely helpful!

They bring wardrobe boxes for you -- so all you have to do is move the clothes from your closet to the box and back to the closet again, without messing with the hangers!

When I move again, I will absolutely be back for my fourth round! :)

Thank you, Conrad!"

- Hi everyone! I apologize because this is a rather long post. What does "back for my fourth round" mean in this situation?

Thanks a lot!

It means that the speaker has already used Conrad's company three times, so when he moves house again it will be for the fourth time (= "for the fourth round"). A round is the term often used to describe an iterated activity, especially in sports (e.g. "the third round of the UEFA European Championship").
