Can this be driven to destination ? ThanksReport a Violation
Response: Just bought it and do not know how reliable/ road worthy it is? I prefer to be hauled on trailer! If I get one more response for more money, I will fly back and drive the truck myself.3/5/2014Report a Violation
Response: This will cost $ 1000 in fuel alone, $ 400 plane ticket, $ 600 hotels and meals for 5 days driving. 3/6/2014Report a Violation
Response: 2000 miles at 10mpg at an average of $5.00 a gallon would be $1000.00 in fuel. $400.00 in a plane ticket, two days of straight driving, a sleeping bag and sleeping in the truck (for FREE), and $200.00 for food. Hard to figure out when someone has the time and money to drive it their selves versus paying someone to make money on a regular shipping route. I submitted a fair offer originally and am not going to pay someone a greedy rate. I bought the truck for my wife's future business and had to fight the bank to get the money. The bank didn't want to help us start a new business. We are not rich and I work with shipping companies and equipment companies who ship equipment all the time. The price I submitted is a fair honorable price and I am not going any higher than $2300.00. The next price increase request I get, I will lower the price instead of raise it. The shipping route for my truck is a straight shot to California on hwy 80. Yes we have a budget!3/6/2014Report a Violation
Response: If you are starting a transport business you might want to know legal drivers can only drive 11 hours/day, which makes it for a 3 day 700 mile drive. You will need a logbook, and you will have to stop at all the weight stations along the route. Thanks3/7/2014Not in Violation

I think your offer is fair fro what you are shipping. if I was in the Columbia area I would accept your offer and be thankful for it. check our profile for info and pics. maybe we can make arrangements. don't let em get you down.Report a Violation
Response: We can work on the delivery dates if needed. We are forced to buy the truck because of our wonderful State of California that thinks they are special, requiring lame rules for delivering cupcakes to customers. They are requiring us to build our own truck to fit their rules. Wow, isn't the government great? Evidently you can NOT use a catering truck to deliver prepackaged foods and have to use a specificly designed vehicle that no one manufactures. I do need to make arrangements to pick it up from the dealer and let him know when that might be. We have so much paper work and hoops to jump through with our county besides build and designing a truck for my wife. Hopefully someone can help a true tax paying, hard working, honest, loyal family start their business even though we disagree where our tax money is spent.3/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: I know and then the irs says we r first in line. the earliest I could be in that area is 3/21 and that is dependant on some stuff I've bid out of ca. im hoping to know about things this eve but no gaurentees. if you checked our profiles you,ll c your truck can drive on and off with ease. and I don't need a plane ticket.3/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: I would work for us because I have to build a commercial kitchen, build and design the truck, get it approved, finish all of our licensing, get a background check, and finally be able to start our business by 1st April. Then I have to do it all over again to set up my general contracting business. I will be busy! 3/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: sounds like it. I will keep you posted on if things fall into place. I will also look and see what else is available to get me in that area. hank for your considering using us. we are a one truck operation as you can see just trying to make a living. 3/7/2014Report a Violation
