My mom's house burn & need help storing things
  • No
  • No
Additional Information: My mom's home had a large fire. The back of the home was destroyed and the rest smoke damaged. We need help putting the things she wants to keep in storage. We will need to be at least 2 men and upto 4 men for help moving some furniture, packing & moving boxes, taking to storage a few blocks away. So we would need someone with a truck, some muscle and someone that does not mind a dirt job! We need help moving things 4/9 & 4/10 maybe even 4/11 but we really hope to be done the first 2 days.

I'd be willing to help 8 hours per day+/-for 2 days. I worked for FedEx so I know how to handle boxes! My dad is a retired steelmill worker so he knows how to load and unload material, we are both careful. I have a covered Dodge 1500 with an open trailer or a covered Ford 2500 dually with an open trailer. It's tough pricing this ... I estimate about $100 in gas, rountrip, 2 days from High Rolls, NM (east of Alamogordo) $350 for two guys for two days, comes out to about $10 an hour/8 hrs per[content removed - To avoid confusion on the part of the customer, TSP’s may no longer mention “uShip fees”, "uShip commission", or similar language in their Q&A – this will now be a flaggable offense as bids must be all inclusive. -uShip]s. (so roughly $500 for 2 guys for 2 days/8hrs per day give or take) = $500 roughly. You have your listing set up as per hour + truck fee, not as per job?In Violation
Response: Hi - Thanks for the bid. Could you work 2-3 days if needed? I think 2 days will be enough but not sure until we dig in. Can you & your dad move furniture also? We are fine with the truck/trailer and can work out all the details when we talk. We are familar with U-Ship fees - I had a U-Ship accepted bid done last Sept - not a problem. The bid sounds good - I just wanted to make sure that your dad can lift furniture. You can work week days . . . I have friends in for the weekend and will have you an answer no later then Tuesday most like Monday. Thanks again - look forward to hearing back3/29/2008Report a Violation
Response: Hi, currently in Albuquerque, we can both move furniture, but may I ask what the largest pieces of furniture are? I'd only prefer working two days vs three days because of the drive. I am flexible as I sell on ebay, my Dad is too as he is retired .. so any days/times are usually ok.3/30/2008Report a Violation
Response: Hi Leo The things my mom wants to move to storage: 2 bedrooms suits (we are giving away the matresses), antique living room suit (7-8 pieces - light stuff), formal dining room set (heavy stuff)-antique Table, chairs, side tables and buffett(the antique buffet is the heavest piece of furniture in the whole move - I think. It comes in 2 pieces top & bottom), Office room - antique rolltop desk and chair, and a few curio cabinets. We hope to have 2-3 additional people from her church to help with things - that is in the works. Our plans are to be there Wednesday to open the place up (it has smoke damage) let it air out, pack some boxes and organize what we need done. Then have you come in on Thursday & Friday from 8AM - 6PM to move things to storage - times can be a little flexible. We would like to accept your bid and work out all the details via phone with you.

Response: No problem that works great - just send the bid and I will accept. I leave tomorrow for New Mexico so if you could send today I will be able to work out all details and get with you on the phone. The movie sounds like fun!
