Hello Jim , I see that your looking for a budget in the 175 range . I think this is a fair shipment price , I need to know what the terrain will be like from unload point to the side of the house sand gravel grass dirt or smooth level concrete?, Narrow gate ? pallets are normally 40-48" wide and gates are usually 36"wide. Is the terrain as such that a pallet jack may move freely and and have ample room for a palet of this length to make necessary turns . ? Sorry for all the questions . But we must be sure of all things that could hinder a possibly easy as pie delivery. Todd from 5starhauling. Is there any other obstacles or issues that you can think of before I place a bid at your budget?Report a Violation
Response: Hello 5star, as far as unload goes, my house sits about 60ft back from the street/driveway, I have a double wide driveway so a truck can easy back in. I have concrete driveway all the way down to the front of my house, and I want the unload to be to the left side of my house in the front of my house (as you look at my house on hard gravel. You will have ample room for a fork lift or a pallet jack to move freely and make u turns if you wish. There are no gates that you have to go past its all open from the driveway on. Any other questions please ask. Thanks, Jim 1/15/2014Report a Violation
Response: OK Jim , Last couple of questions before I place my bid of 175 . 5 star feedback is important . anything less is very detrimental to my feedback , The method of unloading will most probably be a little unorthodoax . with my not having a lift gate or fork lift etc. but I am sure that it is something I can handle for you. So if your sure that unorthodox method of getting it off wont bother you or my feedback I can do this. Next I see you have a deadline of doing this before the 1st of the month which is fine . I also understand that the boat yard is available from 9-4 M-F. and appointment is preferable. Now what is the window of opportunity for delivery ?, Are you retired and available M-F 3PM to 5PM to accept delivery? Todd Todd. 1/15/2014Report a Violation
