Additional Information: Boat will be ready for pick-up as early as Tuesday April 29th. Originally I was looking to do a tow-away service but that is only an option if driver is capable of on-road repairs. Seller has told me that he has towed the boat recently, however, surveyor was unable to get brakes to operate, and leaf springs and axle spindle showed rusting.

Otherwise, would be looking to send by open transport. Quote should include shrink-wrap installation if boat will be loaded on the bed of a diesel truck.

Question:
4/23/2014
Is the trailer road ready with a current/temp plate,thankyou,MikeReport a Violation
Response: Yes, my understanding is the trailer is road ready. I need to confirm that as I have not physically examined the trailer, but assume it is for the purposes of this job. Chris UPDATE - Trailer is not road ready - Just got off the phone with the surveyor and was told tires are in great shape and there are two spares, HOWEVER,brakes do not work, lights need to be hung off of the back, and springs are are questionable. I am going to try and see if I can get the trailer fixed quickly, otherwise, this may need to go on a bed.4/23/2014Report a Violation

Can it wait till May 14-15 to be picked up?Report a Violation
Response: It would be a last resort on my part to have it delivered that late. I need to get work done on it once it gets here, and the service lines are getting really long the closer we get to labor day.4/26/2014Report a Violation

A BOAT THAT LIGHT,NOT HAVING BRAKES ON THE TRAILER IS NOT A BIG DEAL,WE PULL UP TO 4500 LBS WITH OUT TRAILER BRAKES.Report a Violation
Response: Great to hear. Just want to be transparent about what I know and don't know. Some haulers have said brakes were critical, others, like you, do not think they are necessary. I look forward to getting a bid from you. Thanks!!4/26/2014Report a Violation
Question:
4/27/2014
ARE YOU FLEXABLE ON THE DELIVERY DATES,IM ALL READY HAULING A BOAT BACK TO NY FROM FL AROUND THAT TIME FRAME,BUT WE CAN DO A LOT BETTER ON YOUR PRICE.PLEASE LET USE KNOW.Report a Violation
Response: It would have to be a substantial discount. The boat needs service and bottom paint when it gets here and the closer we get to Memorial Day, the more backed the service department becomes. However I am open to considering it4/28/2014Report a Violation

I am the low bidder if u have interest. Would like to book a return load. Thanks , Doug McAtee DUG3x3Report a Violation
Response: Thanks Doug, Great bid, and much more in line with what I was hoping for. Did you notice my comments about the trailer in the description? I have not seen the trailer myself. The seller says it is in great shape, but the surveyor noted rust on the axle spindle, springs, and brakes did not operate. tires are good and there are two spares. Ideally I would like to have the boat towed back as the cost is much lower, but would need to know that you are able to do maintenance on the road if need be. (e.g. re-pack bearings) What are your thoughts?4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes , I bring everything. Jacks, air compressor, tools . Have towed my whole life. We can fix about anything that comes up. We will look it over and fix anything it needs for safe travel. Doug4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am new to this so don't really know what to expect. What might the additional cost be for trailer repairs? I know it is hard to quote something you can't see, but I don't want to pay too much to get the trailer roadworthy as once it gets here the boat will live in the water, and for not too much more money, I can get the whole thing brought up on a flat bed. Also, is the 11th the earliest you could get it here?4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: No charge to make the trailer roadworthy im figuring some possible tinkering in my bid. Unless of course it is junk. Im assuming its pretty good and wont need much. My trip plan is leave Maine May 6th to Florida. Leave Florida May 10th be home to Maine by May 12th. doug4/28/2014Report a Violation
