Hello shipper, the weight listed as 100lbs. is that correct? Can this be picked up anytime? Thank you and God bless. DAve&Joe JD Express.Report a Violation
Response: I guessed at the weight. I have no idea what a piano weighs. It s a piano from around the 1910s. It can be picked up at any time.3/27/2011Report a Violation
Response: Hi shipper, if you can wait for me to pick this up until 4/10/11, and deliver next day, I can do this for you for $550 flat. Not sure what you are looking for, but this is door to door blanket wrapped service. We are fully insured, and reputable. Please check our ratings and feed back. Thank you and God bless.

Response: There is no time line, but I can't afford that amount at this time. Sorry.3/28/2011Report a Violation
Question:

I am a professional pool table mechanic with 13 years of experience in the industry. I travel the entire lower 48 United States, full time, moving pool tables, pianos, organs, and other special care items. I have all the tools, knowledge, and experience to expertly handle your move. I perform my service in a 16ft. box truck with lift-gate. Please read my feedbacks and discover that I am ranked #1 in pool table moves, #2 in special care item moves, and #2 in piano moves on Uship's website out of 198,450 service providers listed! If this piano is from the 1910's, the weight of it should be around 400lbs. Can this item be ready for pick up in about a week or so? Thanks, Brent aka Zot MovingReport a Violation
Response: It can be picked up at anhy time. I just need to find a bid that I can afford.3/29/2011Report a Violation
Response: I smy current bid not in your budget? What is the budget that you can afford? Maybe compromises can be made on both sides, and the account suspension was an error on Uship's part, and they are willing to answer any emails forthcoming as to such. I did decrease my bid somewhat, but fuel is very high right now, so I really have no more room for discount, but my bid is all inclusive with NO hidden extra charges at all!! Brent of Zotmoving.3/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: I am willing to work with you. I was figuring on $300.00. I don't know if that is workable for you. I don't have a definite time that it has to be picked up, but once it is, I want it to be delivered within a reasonable time. We are giving the piano that was my grandmother's to my son and his family for their children to learn to play. I feel better about the insurance in case something happens in route. Is this workable for you?3/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: Once I have it picked up, I guarantee that it will be delivered within 2 weeks time or sooner depending on how I route my southern run, but this mileage is sufficient for that promise definately!!! I have already included insuarance in my bid for the liability of something to go wrong, and once tolls, and fees are added...I am right now at the current bid receiving less than $300 to me personally, so I am well within your budget currently. I can not do the shipment for an all inclusive bid with insurance, tolls, all packing supplies, and current fuel prices for anything less. I hope you understand, and will accept my current bid. I know I am not necessarily the cheapest, but I am very good and dependable as my feedback rating suggests. I know you will be most pleased for the extra money. I own this company so I love and nurture its reputation. I am not just a driver who will toss your treasure around!!! Sincerely, Brent Stembridge owner of zotmoving3/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: Okay. Let me talk to my husband and will respond tomorrow.3/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: OK, I will be awaiting your response. Thanks, Brent3/30/2011Report a Violation
Response: My husband just reminded me that we are not available April 10-17. Is that going to be a problem for your schedule?3/31/2011Report a Violation
Response: No that will not be a problem. I am still in NC finishing east coast then I have a job in AL to expedite. Then I will start in Chicago to TX to FL...that is when you will be put on the schedule for pickup and delivery. I don't see all this happening all that quickly for that amount of coverage.
