So, I am most likley 95% going to go with your bid for shipping. I have a couple of questions though. This item is on wheels. He is going to be very difficult to find a box or crate for, so I am wondering if i could, pad, and wrap him very well, and if he could be strapped to the side of the truck? I used to move photocopiers for a living, and this is what we would do. My other question is.. the 3rd party insurance. The buyer would like to purchase this I believe... So how would he/I go about purchasing it?
