Question:
1/1/2014
Hello, can a truck and 40 ft. enclosed trailer access both locations safely and without causing traffic issues? Are there nay stairs or steps at either location? Will there be assistance loading/unloading? What is your budget for this shipment? I will provide a very good blanket wrap on the piano to ensure safe transport. You can click on my username to view my profile and feedback. Thanks for your time, KenReport a Violation
Response: Thanks for your interest Ken. Both locations are in residential neighborhoods and can be accessed pretty easily curbside. At the pickup location, there would be only one person (my father in law) to help load, up to three outdoor steps to go down, depending on which door you use. At delivery location, there is only one step and I can get several people to help unload. Budget is in the $800-$900 range. Schedule is very flexible (weeks/month) if you need to schedule with another delivery. We also have a piano stool that goes with. Do you have good tie-downs for both the piano and stool? Thanks again for your interest!1/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for the reply. I would be picking up the piano January 7th or 8th with delivery in approx. 10 days depending on the weather. I have e-track in my trailer which would be used with straps to secure the piano after securely blanket wrapping with high quality moving blankets first. Due to the weight of the piano, I would have to hire additional help to load. Because of this, the best price I am able to offer is $950. Please let me know. Ken1/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ken, thanks for the update. I understand about the weight and extra help. Your references look fantastic and we appreciate your questions. I think $950 sounds good if you are ok with everything and with taking the stool as well (also a fairly nice piece). I have attached a picture of the piano & stool in the listing if you want to take a look. If you want to submit the bid of $950, we will accept it to make it official. Really appreciate the communication. As this is our first time using Uship, we're not sure how communication works in lining up pick-up/delivery but I'm sure we'll keep in touch. Thanks, Matt.1/5/2014Report a Violation

Response: Hello. What is your budget?1/5/2014Report a Violation
Response: Good Evening. The previous bid you submitted (~$946) is at the top of our budget and we would accept that number. We also have a nice piano stool that needs to go with, it shouldn't require much additional space. We attached a pic of the piano in our listing. Thanks for your interest.1/5/2014Report a Violation
Response: If we could pickup within the next week and half, we could place another bid for the previous amount. Thank you 1/5/2014Report a Violation
