  • 3 ft 0 in. 
  • 300 lbs
Well Secured onto Palate with wrapping plastic & straps; Items can easily be repacked without palates, directly onto a pickup or for other reason. By my guys! Experienced packer/rigger will meet you to help load. I will be at delivery site. Palates are not covered but heavy duty tarp would work if shipped in open bed truck. Loading & pickup should take 1 hour or less! Even if repacked. LOADING/Unloading sites have excellent access & should not take more than 1 hour!
A palate jack! (Though we can provide if necessary) These are raw stones for sculpture, so not delicate. They not finished art works. No special instructions other than be careful..This is straight forward shipment with easy load & off load sites.. Thank you
Additional Information: Access for pick-up & drop off is excellent, via smooth driveway with lanes
This is straight forward moving job, I already fit the entire load in a Ford F-150 truck & a 6x10 uhaul trailer. They were full but when packed well it all fit nicely, just to give an idea. You'll get assistance on both ends & home cooked meal when delivered successfully.

3 Palates Total. All well packed.

2 Palates: Alabaster, Marble, Limestone small blocks for sculpture. aprx- 300lbsmax per palate
1 Palate: tools in locked box, small air filter machine, heavy duty trolly, miscl. aprx- 125lbs

Would it all fit in the back of my f-350?Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for your reply, I am almost 100% sure it will all fit without problem in a f-350, but if you can give me 24hrs I want to confirm. It fit before, but let me just double check and get back to you. Thanks very much. Anthony Holbrooke8/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok not a problem. Will there be a forklift to put it in my truck? Thanks Curtis8/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: Working on getting palate or other lifting equipment. I am in new york now but my close friend who is in Vegas and staying at the pick up location actually works in logistics and shipping- he is a great guy and very very helpful so I think we can work out all these details,, just need time to exchange emails with him.. I'm asking him if we can borrow lifting equipment. Should have answers by tomorrow. Thanks- Will let you know soon as possible. Anthony8/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: ok no problem. I'll wait to hear back from you. curtis8/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: Curtis- did you receive my reply? I sent a detailed reply with dates and price twice.. maybe I am doing something wrong.. if you get this please reply soon as you can- even if just to confirm your are getting my messages Thanks Anthony 8/10/2014Report a Violation
Response: I didn't get your messages. I was having issues with my account. All is good now. Please resend the email again on dates and price. Thank you Curtis8/10/2014Report a Violation
Response: Curtis- sorry I've been working and you did not receive my messages which said The pick up has to be 8/14 or after My Friend would personally pack everything with you onto your f350. would take about an hour amd sit no problem. $1200 and your welcome to stay in in the guest studio if lift fits your turn around.. I haven't booked it. Missed my window because I cant do pick ups past few day. BUt 8/14 after is good. Thanks Anthony 8/11/2014Report a Violation
Response: So far at the moment it looks like I could still do it. I'll put in a bid for 1200. Thanks Curtis8/11/2014Report a Violation
Response: Curtis- sorry to go MIA. my loading site guy actually came to nyc(to pick up a dog to drive back out west..) so lost my window, then listing expired.. As you said, the uship site is clunky & crashes alot. forcing me to start listing from scratch each time. All that said, I wonder if your still interested. I prefer a dedicated driver/vehicle. My guy in Vegas says the entire load will fit no problem in f-350. He does logistics for a living & knows better than I. We can sort out loading details if your still interested. I can go as high as 1200$. (slightly higher than bids by big rig truckers, but a dedicated driver/load is probably better for me). And to save on hotel for your turn around- You're welcome to stay in our guest bungalow. Its simple but clean & very nice & my wife is excellent cook. Sorry I didn't communicate this better before, but I'm new to Uship.. Alas- Any questions let me know.. and hopefully your interested & able to take this load. I need my tools! Thanks Anth8/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm still very interested in taking your shipment and placed a bid for you. Thanks Curtis (franchize8)8/20/2014Report a Violation
I also wanted to see if you had a price in mind for the shipment. thanks curtisReport a Violation
Response: Curtis- I double checked everything and your F-350 will definitely be able to handle all my stuff. And my people will help load everything on to the truck when you are there. The pick up location is a house with 5 guys staying there for the summer as they work on a construction job.. So they will load everything onto truck with you. 2 guys, 3 maximum can load everything on to a truck in an hour or so. We just need to coordinate the time so that you collect my stuff when my friend Jim and his crew are there and ready to load it onto your truck. If that sounds like it will work, we can start discussing other details, like dates and costs. I'm busy working the rest of the night but would like to sort out the rest of this tmrw or by the end of the weekend-- If thats ok by you. Hope that works. Thanks Anthony Holbrooke 8/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yea that works for me. I'm available to go up to there all week as far a I know right now. We just need to figure out price. Thanks Curtis8/8/2014Report a Violation
Response: excellent- just need a day to crunch some numbers and check my budget but I think we should be able to come to agreement which works for you and hopefully is still within my budget. I'll get back to you tmrw with some numbers. Thanks Anthony8/8/2014Report a Violation
Hello . i can pick up tues afternoon . .Report a Violation
Sorry about the disconnect . but i can pickup tues afternoon ( my trailer has a lift gate ). And deliver within 7 days . 1000 $ in your range ? Thanks , SeanReport a Violation
Response: Sean- thanks for your reply. Tues with a lift gate could work and yes my range is 1000$. The thing is I have another shipper currently deciding if he can handle my load-- so I think I need to wait for his answer. But if he can not do it or it falls through for any reason I would definitely like to try and arrange for you to handle this load. If you can give me 24 hours I will let you know, but again with a lift gate, a Tuesday pickup would work just fine for me and $1000 is right in my range. I'll let you know either way within 24 hours. Thanks very much Anthony Holbrooke 8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: No problem Anthony . Thanks !8/10/2014Report a Violation
I haven't been able to receive my emails for some reason. I see you have another shipper possibly for your shipment. Looks like he has a lift gate and is prob more suitable for your stuff. You can take his bid. Thank your for the opportunity though. Thanks CurtisReport a Violation
Response: Unfortunately I now have a 3 day black out period on pick ups. 8/14 or after i am again able to have a pick up. If 8/14 is an option let me know, Thanks Anthony8/11/2014Report a Violation
