I can pick this up by 8/28 and have it delivered by 9/1. I handle shipments throughout the US & Canada. Insurance: Progressive Commercial cargo 100K. All items are handled with extreme care! Cost for transport: $2,322. If terms are agreeable, I'll enter a bid for your approval. This offer is for immediate transport only, so a prompt reply is appreciated. Thank you, LucianoReport a Violation
Response: I have read your feedback and all very positive. Can you do it for $2000? as I have bids even lower. if so this sounds good to me. T8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for the prompt reply! I did see that you had lesser bids, but it's difficult to get it that low. There are certain fixed costs that I can't get around. I do believe that not all bids of the same amount are equal. I handle all shipments as if they're my own! I carry the proper interstate insurance, that has an unlimited radius. It's an important part of the bid to verify, if a shippers insurance coverage is limited to a 500 mi radius or not. I'd like to book this tonight .... would you accept $100 off the previous quote? Would that be enough to earn your business? Please review customer feedback; I'm honest & straight forward. Regards, Luciano8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks Luciano. We are awful close! I had to incur additional expenses by purchasing 4 new tires and having the bearings completely overhauled while I was there on vacation. So I am a bit over my budget as is. Can you split the difference between what I proposed and your original bid? … Thanks, Tom8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'll enter a bid for $2,161. The bid will be valid for 1 hour. Please approve accordingly. Regards ...8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: I just got back to my computer, saw your bid and note…. but it has been withdrawn. I am at my computer now. Please resubmit for on hour.8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: Tom, I'm actively communicating with other customers. I'm not in the habit of keeping multiple open bids. It can get rather messy if a customer in WA & one in FL simultaneously accept bids. I hope that's understandable. Can you accept my bid promptly? Regards ...8/25/2014Report a Violation
Response: This needs to be booked tonight in order for me to accommodate it. If I don't hear from you ... Best of luck with your shipment!8/25/2014Report a Violation
