What would it take to earn your business today?Report a Violation
Response: I am still waiting to receive the money to be used for the move. It was supposed to be sent from FL last week sometime, but it has not yet arrived. As soon as it does you will have the job. But until it does I do not have the 50% deposit.5/28/2012Report a Violation

Response: We are now ready. New moving date of 7/13/2012 (or thereabouts.)6/9/2012Report a Violation
Question:
5/28/2012
hello what is the best dates for pick up and drop off can give a better deal,martinReport a Violation
Response: For pickup, the best date would be June 30th, but we go a day or two either side of that date. For delivery we have more flexibility since the house we are moving to is partially furnished. Obviously, the sooner the better but within two weeks is acceptable.5/28/2012Report a Violation
Response: hello what are your best dates for pick up and drop off can still offer the same price thank you,martin6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: Last day of work is 7/13/2012 so anytime after that. Delivery date is flexible as the house where we are going is already partially furnished so we will have beds already there. But as soon as possible would also be nice.6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: could we pick up 7-17 and drop off 7-19 ,martin6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: That would be fine. What is your bid? I do not find it from before?6/9/2012Report a Violation
Question:
6/9/2012
Hello, can a large truck and 40 ft. enclosed trailer access both locations safely and without blocking traffic? I can meet you pickup and delivery dates. My price will be a bit higher than your current bids but the service I provide is well worth it. Do the legs or base remove from the dining table? How large is the patio table? What are the dimensions of the executive desk? Is any of your items over 7' tall? You can click on my username to view my profile and fb left by previous customers. If you have any questions, please ask and I will do my best to answer them. Thanks for your time, KenReport a Violation
Response: I believe so. I know that a mobile home was brought up to the location at one time, and depending on your skill there should be room to manuever and turn around. Please be aware that the last 30' is walking uphill to the door.6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for the reply and the heads up on the delivery end. I will see what labor cost on the delivery end and I will get back to you with a bid. Do you know anyone at the delivery end that would be will to help unload? If you can provide some labor, you will save on cost. 6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: We can probably hire some help in Charleston, but the bid will be considered with the cost of hiring unloaders built in. Since I am wheelchair bound, the only one available for free is my wife, and she would prefer it if someone else would unload. I am looking forward to receiving your bid.6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: Before I can give a quote, I would need the answers to my previous questions. 6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: 1)The dining table top (round) does come off from the base. 2) The patio table has a 2' diameter. 3) The desk is 3' deep, 5' wide, and 30" tall. 4) There is nothing over 7' tall.6/9/2012Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for the answers. My price for an all inclusive move would be $3675. Let me know if I can be of service. Ken6/9/2012Report a Violation
Question:
6/9/2012
Is the inventory accurateReport a Violation
Response: It is as accurate as I could get. We live in a partially finished church parsonage and are going to a partially furnished home so we do not have as much to move as some others. For example, we have two recliners but no sofa. I am not sure if I listed a power wheelchair and mobility scooter which will also have to be moved. Also, I had to estimate the number of boxes since I will not have an accurate count until we finish packing. Hope this helps.6/9/2012Report a Violation

Hi Craig are you still looking to have this move done? I would like to assist you with your move. I will place a bid and if it seems reasonable please let me know. Thanks Odyssey MoversReport a Violation
Response: Yes, we definitely still need to move ASAP. So please bid. Thanks.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: does my bid seem reasonable to you? We would definitely like to assist you with your move. Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Your bid is higher than what we had accepted before, but we found out you get what you pay for. But being a pastor who retired on disability doesn't leave us a lot of financial flexibility. Three questions: 1)What size truck are you using? The road to the house is narrow, steep, and has a tight 90 degree turn in it. 2) Would we be your only load or would we be sharing the truck? 3) How soon can you load, and how long before unloading?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: I can understand that my adopted father retired as a pastor himself. To answer your first question, we currently don't have a running truck at the moment, so what we are doing is asking our customers if they could reserve our truck and pay for our gas and that would be the 50% out of our pay. We would use a 24ft budget truck, your load will be the only one and loading and unloading your stuff shouldn't take longer then 2 to 3 hours to do. If you have any further questions feel free to ask. Thanks Odyssey Movers 7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: I am not sure I understand what you are saying. Are we to have the truck here waiting for you, or do you need it at your location? The cost is $488 from Columbia to Colby, KS to Charleston, WV, and there is unlimited mileage. It is 1124 miles from Colby to Charleston, but 2097 from Columbia to Colby to Charleston. Gas (figured at 8MPG at $4.00/gal) would be $1050. So that totals $1,538. Figuring that into the equation, what then is your bid? I am not sure what the 50% out of your pay means.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: on our terms and condition we have the customer pay 50% of the amount due to us after the truck is loaded. Instead of having to pay that, we are asking if you can take that 50% of 3000 and put it towards a truck and gas from Colby,KS to Charleston,WV. All you will have left to pay us will be 1500. Does that sound more understanding? Thanks Odyssey Movers 7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: That sounds reasonable. Now, are you wanting the truck in Columbia or Colby? All we have here is U-Haul. If you want the truck here, how are you getting from Columbia to Colby, and then from Charleston back to Columbia?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: We can get to Wichita,KS and pick up the budget truck there and drive it to Colby then to Charleston. We can catch the bus back to Columbia from Charleston.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Question:
7/20/2012
If you can get the truck reserved here in Columbia,TN it will only be $548 with unlimited miles. We can be there to pick up your stuff on the 25th and have it delivered on the 27th. Will that work alot better? Thanks Odyssey MoversReport a Violation
Response: OK. This is what I have so far. We will reserve the truck for you in Columbia, TN at $548. (What date will you get it?) You will drive from Columbia to Colby to load on 7/25 and then to Charleston, WV to unload 7/27. We will pay the $548 truck rental plus $1,050 for gas. What we will owe you after these expenses is $1,500. By the way, I don't think the 27th will work because I don't think we could make it by then. Can we unload on the 28th or 29th instead?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: That will work we can pick up on the 25th and have it all unloaded by that afternoon on the 28th. What you can do is take 1500 out of 3000 towards the truck and gas and if there is any left over you can just add it back to the 1500 that is due back to us. Once you accept my bid we can discuss alot more over the phone. Will that work? Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Will you drop off the truck in Charleston, or drive it back to Columbia? My wife is threatening to take my laptop away if I don't take a break for lunch. So, it is 1:30PM here, and we will give you your answer by 3PM. OK?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: I will be dropping it off in Charleston. I better go eat lunch myself. Look forward to assisting you with your move. Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: The deposit was paid to uShip when we accepted the bid. They gave us credit for that amount since it had to be cancelled. We called Budget and they said that we need to be present to rent the truck. There is a Budget location in Hays, KS which is 90 minutes from here in your direction. You would have to pick up the truck there. My wife also wants to know if Wednesday the 25th is the earliest you can pick up?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: is there a way we can do a payment arrangement for me to reserve the truck here? Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: If we can work something out I can do it on the earliest date you need us. Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Budget requires us to be present when paying for the truck with a credit card. Wichita is almost 6 hours from here; Hays is 1.5 hours. If that will work for you we will accept the bid, and the earliest you can be here would be great.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: If we got a truck in Hays,KS wouldn't you have to be present? Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Yes, we would have to be present in Hays. But it is a lot closer for us (90 minutes) than Wichita (6 hours). The other option is to use U-Haul which we can rent here in Colby.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: We will more then likely drive our car there and pull it along the way to Charleston,WV.Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: OK. So do you want Budget or U-Haul? And are we needing to pay for the tow dolly for your car? If so, what is the year, make, model, and whether is front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: whats the earliest you want us to do this? We can have u in Charleston unloaded on the 25th if possible?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Would Monday, 7/23 work? And unload in Chas. on 7/26.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: That should be able to work out well. I will ask my mover if he can do that then i will let you know at about 4 or 5pm will that be ok? Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Question:
7/20/2012
Before I can give you all the information on the car, whats the earliest that you want to be loaded and unloaded?Report a Violation
Response: The Budget truck will be available as early as tomorrow but also on Monday. We just need to let them know. Also, are you over 24? Mover??? I thought you were doing it. Are you subbing it out or something?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: I will have a helper going with me. I rather go with Uhual instead.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: OK. We will accept the bid once you give us a firm loading date. We will have the truck ready and waiting.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: What truck will you be renting? we can put it all in a 20ft will that work?7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: No, I am pretty sure we will need the 26' truck. The less we have to carry in our van (aside from our dog and cat) the better.7/20/2012Report a Violation
Response: Ok I will give you a deffinite answer at 5pm will that be ok? Thanks Odyssey Movers7/20/2012Report a Violation
Question:
7/20/2012
Ok we decided since its cheaper to go with the Budget truck with a car transporter. We will bring a dollie and straps for everything. We wont be able to be there till 24th will that work? Thanks Odyssey MoversReport a Violation
Response: The 24th is fine. I will accept the bid. When you are on your way, when you get to Salina, KS give us a call [phone number removed] so we can meet you in Hays to get the truck.7/20/2012In Violation
