Additional Information: Note that I have won this auction. Another shipper had the job but couldn't get the item. I now need to have this item removed Thursday February 8th. In the worst case, it could be picked up Saturday February 10. If not then, it has to wait till March. This Elliptical Trainer is located in a basement in Canfield, OH. There is 1 flight of stairs involved. The shipper must come with 2 or more people to move the item. I have disassembly instructions from Lifefitness that I can fax or email to the shipper. The delivery is to East Longmeadow, MA. I can reassemble once it is delivered. Owner in Ohio will not be able to help at all. Report a Violation

Question:
1/30/2007
I will not be able to disassemble-can I load it just like it is? I will be in OH this weekend (sat) and can pickup this item for you. Whats your price range? Let me know. ThanksReport a Violation
Response: My potential eBay seller says: February 10th is fine. Please let your shipper know that this is a large heavy machine and impossible for 1 person to move it alone -- also there is a flight of steps involved. Neil says price range is open at this time. If the price is too high, I won't bid on the machine, and if low, I can bid higher on the machine. I'm still thinking that it may be advantageous to take it apart. How many people do you have? 4 or 5 I think would be necessary to move it in it's entirety.1/30/2007Report a Violation
Question:
1/30/2007
Is the picture correct, and the weight you listed is 240 lbs-if these are correct then there is no problem that myself and another guy can load/unload? Let me know. thanksReport a Violation
Response: The weight should be correct (from Lifefitness). I must be a weakling. I can lift about 100 pounds tops. 2 guys, 240 pound unit, flight of stairs, and that makes it 120 pounds each (and the guy on the bottom will get the worse end of the deal). I think that you'll want to disassemble part of the unit to make it lighter and less awkward. Remember this is in a basement. Seller (in Canfield) will not be able to help load at all.1/31/2007Report a Violation
Question:
1/31/2007
That is fine, we do not need this disassembled and we will not have a problem loading/unloading. Please accept my bid asap since my route is ready for departure. Thanks CraigReport a Violation
Response: I will accept the best bid after the auction ends tomorrow. The seller requires that the shipper pick up in a short time period (IE that they don't want a time frame from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM to pick up. They want a more exact time. Can you meet this requirement? I will make a decicion tomorrow evening once the auction is complete.1/31/2007Report a Violation

I will be in Pittsburg PA at 9:00 am on Friday morning so the customer knows how far they are from Pittsburg thus that would be my time of pickup (it looks like maybe 3 hours?) I will have a better idea once the bid is accepted and I get an address. ThanksReport a Violation
Response: Hello Uboxit, I had hired a shipper who has problems (can't get ahold of him) and if you can do this job in the timeframe specified (Thursday or Saturday) and be reliable, I will pay just about whatever you want (within reason). I am out of time and patience. Address is now listed for where the item is (Diane DiPiero 3679 Sugarbush Drive Canfield, OH 44406). You'll need more than one person to move this. Let me know if you can do this. Thanks neil2/7/2007Report a Violation

I can't believe that you are requesting my bid again-like I originally stated, I traveled by your pickup location and now I will be in MA delivering Feb 9-10th. YOU SHOULD HAVE ACCEPTED MY BID-I SUBMITTED IT MORE THAN ONCE. I hear this all the time "my shipper didn't show up" everyone tries to go cheap and this is what happens. Anyways I really wish you would of accepted my bid, it would have been delivered to you this weekend. I am sorry but I won't be back in OH for a while-not unless something comes up. Report a Violation
Response: I can't believe it either, and wish I had accepted your bid. Sorry but I made a bad bad decision. Thanks anyway.2/7/2007Report a Violation

Neil, what are you willing to pay? I don't know if I could get enough to pay the gas just to go back over from NY since I have nothing else to pickup or deliver. Report a Violation
Response: Make me an offer. When could you get there? Basically I'm over a barrel.2/7/2007Report a Violation
Question:
2/7/2007
You would have to tell me the price your willing to pay so that I can see if it is worth my time and gas. OK, and if the price is good enough I'm looking at Sat (any time).Report a Violation

Neil, this seems reasonable, let me see what I can do-is Friday definitely out of the question for pickup?Report a Violation
Response: I've called the seller. The item can be picked up between 12:30PM and 3:00 PM on Friday.2/7/2007Report a Violation
Question:
2/7/2007
Ok let me work on this and see what I can do. I'll keep Friday in mind as an option.Report a Violation
Response: When will you let me know if you are my new shipper?2/7/2007Report a Violation
Question:
2/7/2007
How will you pay me-I get 1/2 at pickup and 1/2 at delivery (cash). Customers that can not pay cash at pickup will send me the money through PayPal in advance (this guarantees shipment) and the customer is responsible for all fees (Paypal and uship). Let me know if this works for you-I don't want any surprises.Report a Violation
Response: I can paypal you 1/2 now. I will pay you $450 total to do this. I won't pay the paypal fees or the uship charges. I also want your guarantee that you will get the item in time and tell me when you'll be there so I can tell the seller. I'm over a barrel, but I think the $450 price is fair. If you think this is not fair, let me know so I can find another shipper. Thanks Neil2/7/2007Report a Violation
Question:
2/7/2007
Neil, that's fine-I'll touch base with you tomorrow. Report a Violation
Response: I will be at an auction tomorrow from 10:00 AM to probably 4:00 PM. If you contact me before 9:00 AM, I will be able to respond or Paypal if need be. After that, I'll have my wife looking at emails, but I'm not sure she'll be able to respond to Uship or paypal money. So if you think you will do the job, please get with me by 9:00 AM or earlier. Thanks Neil2/7/2007Report a Violation

Sorry Neil I can't compete with this non-rated shippers. Report a Violation
Response: Hello UBOXIT, I have had real problems with the non rated shippers of Uship. All don't communicate. I'm now on my last chance to get the machine. I need to have it moved on March 4th or March 5th. I have the following questions. 1. Can you do the job? 2. Will you be on time? No room for changing dates here. I lose everything this last time if the machine is not picked up. 3 What will you charge? 4. Can you communicate with me and the seller? Seems like a simple thing, but both the previous shippers were sorely lacking in this area. 5. I would need a guarantee that you could get the machine out on one of the dates mentioned above. 6. At this stage, I'm not interested in you competing with these other providers, I'm interested in reliability. The wife wants me to rent a uhaul and go out and get the machine. I don't want to do this. SO, if you know someone who is reliable, or you can do the job, please pass the info along. Check the auction 170074812956 About me.2/10/2007Report a Violation
