Hello Beth, will there be any help to load/unload? Thank you.Report a Violation
Response: Depending on the date and time, it's likely that my husband and 16 yr old son will be available. If it's in the evening, I may can get a couple of young men in the neighborhood. I'm not sure about unloading. It is going to my 74 yr old aunt. Possibly with a couple days notice she can hire some help.4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thank you for answering. What is your budget for this?4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: My budget? Lowest price I can get! :)4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: Beth, I placed my bid for your consideration. If it's something you can work with please make sure there will be help on unloading side also, it's important since I am traveling alone. I will let your aunt know ahead of time when I will drop off. Thank you.4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am waiting on her response about whether or not she can find unloading help. I'll let you know. Thanks. 4/18/2014Report a Violation

what is your target price? I would like to earn your business.. I am #1 in pianos.. thanks Report a Violation
Response: Just give me your best price and tell me how you pack and transport pianos, and if you have help to load and unload. It is going from my house to my 75 yr old aunt's house in Plano TX. I have another bid but am waiting on others, as time is not a factor. Thank you!4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: We offer full service loading and unloading, I am rated #1 in pianos, we load and unload, blanket wrap and strap the piano in our enclosed trailer... Let me know if there are any stairs involved. Thanks 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I do not believe stairs are involved on the delivery end but I have just texted her to be sure. No stairs on my end, just a small step down into garage. Piano is 2 feet from door into garage so u can back right up in garage if truck isn't too high. Can you beat the bid I received last night of $895?4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Pick up around may 1st and delivery by the 5th... Would that be feasible? 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes. As long as you let us know ahead of time the exact day and time. What about the stairs? Will u do it? Any extra?4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: That would be fine... We always call ahead of time and always communicate as much as we can... Stairs, how many stairs? Straight shot? 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: There are 14 steps up to a landing, then 5 steps go up after making a U turn. All carpet. How do you get a heavy upright piano up stairs in a home? Or do you?? She may have to find a downstairs room if it can't be done. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: It can be done... Cost is more of course for stairs and I have a special board that we would strap the piano to, for easier moving... 4/18/2014Report a Violation

hey there.. i have weekly trips scheduled to that area for a client of mines..are you looking to have your items picked up in May or June. I can give you a pickup and delivery date for either Month..Report a Violation
Response: Hi. Early in May is best. It is a very heavy antique upright player piano. Probably weighs 800-1000 lbs. It's going to my aunt and she would really like to put it in an upstairs room. Make me your best offer...I already have two. Thanks. Beth 4/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hey thanks for the info. Why is that piano so much heavier than other upright pianos?4/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: Actually I'm not sure what it weighs! It belonged to my grandparents who bought it around 1950 from a previous owner. I wouldn't know how to weigh it. I googled it and from that, and what my husband thinks, I arrived at that estimate. It's also a PLAYER piano. Solid wood and metal. It's on it's original casters.4/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok bc I shipped four last week and they were around 600lbs. I doubt two guys can lift 1k lbs and carry it up stairs 4/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm assuming the original castors don't roll is that correct 4/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: They actually do....barely...but yes, we have moved it twice ourselves...takes 2 strong men! Never have taken it up stairs. Are u interested? Equipped? Considering placing a bid?4/19/2014Report a Violation
