Question:
4/16/2014
Hi Sara. Are you flexible on your dates? I live just north of Tampa but I am in Wisconsin now. I will be returning to Florida next week around the 22nd or 23rd. I could save you some money. Report a Violation
Response: I am flexible on dates! We could definitely make the 23rd work. Thank you!4/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: Is the trailer road ready? Tires? Wheel Bearings? Lights? Tag or plate? 4/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'll need to check on that! 4/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: That would be great if you can have it checked out so there are no problems on the road. Plus once you start to use it in the water it will be easier. 4/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: I just checked, bearings are greased, tires fully inflated, lights are good and tags are on the trailer so it should be good to go.4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: Good morning Sara. Would I be able to pick the boat up sooner? 21st or 22nd? I need to be back in Florida sooner then I had originally planned. Do you have a budget you are trying to meet? 4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: We should be able to make that work. As for budget, we just need it to be around what it would cost for us to do it ourselves. I'm not familiar with how much these types of things usually cost but if it's too expensive to have someone else do it, my husband will just take a weekend and go get it himself. Right now we estimate we can do it ourselves around 450-500.4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: I understand what you saying and I would love to be able to do it for that but with the price of fuel so high right now that will not cover my fuel. Most shippers will not transport anything for under $1.00 per mile plus the you ship fees. I can do it for .70 per mile. 4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes, we agree to that price. Let me know what date you would prefer to pick it up, either the 21st or the 22nd work fine. Thank you! - Sara4/17/2014Report a Violation
Response: Good morning Sara, is there a spare tire with the trailer? I can enter the bid today if you will except it so I can start to get everything ready to go for the first part of next week. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: As far as I know, there is no spare. I will find out for sure tonight, but I don't think there is. Please go ahead and place the bid!4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I placed the bid so when you except it I can cancel all other pending loads and set up my trip plans for you. I look forward to working with you. Thank you Bruce 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I was under the impression we agreed on .70 per mile which at 1055 miles would put your bid at 740.00. The bid you placed is much higher. Please let me know. I received another bid for 780.00 that will have to go with if you can not meet our earlier arrangement. Thank you!4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I entered the bid below .70 per mile. It's actually at about .67 per mile. I rounded down to $700.00 even. The differance in price is the you ship fees. I have no control over what they charge. Any less in price I will be losing money. At the bid price I am just covering my fuel I am not making any money. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Using this website sounds like it is increasing our price. Would you be willing to accept paypal or a check? Going from approximately $740 to almost $900 is a lot of money. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I completely understand but Any amount $700.00 and under has to go through you ship. It's in their rules. Even talking about the fees can red flag my account. When I place a bid it automatically adds the fees. I tried doing the math on it but I can't figure it out. It should have listed or showed you the fees with my bid. I am truely sorry for any misunderstanding. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I appreciate all the honesty. We just can't do almost 900 when we could do this ourselves for much less. Thank you again. 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Sara. Let me see if I can find something else to go with along your route. Then I can lower the bid some to help you out. Is that ok with you? 4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Absolutely!! Just checking in to see if you were able to find any other shipments to lower the price? Thank you!4/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes I found a motorcycle to put in the bed of my truck. I tried to email you but it said you had agreed to use another shipper. 4/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: We are open! If you are still available, we would love for you to bid.4/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes I can tow it for you. I am going to Minneapolis Mn tonight to see my son and I will be leaving in the morning. I would probably be able to pick it up tomorrow afternoon sometime. 4/21/2014Report a Violation
