Question:
11/2/2010
Hi, before submitting a bid I wanted to see if these items would be available for pick up this weekend, and if the propeller is all one piece or disassembled? Thanks! SteveReport a Violation
Response: Hi, pick up needs to be M-F, 8-3p so someone can be on site. The propeller is one piece. We may pass on the propeller and just do other items if the cost is too high. Thanks, Rocky11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: OK, I will be in greater LA area later this week, Thursday and Friday. I could pick up both items with full labor included for $337, or if there is help for both (un)loading then I can do it for $250. I see the diameter at 6' for the propeller but I am wondering/thinking that the hub is probably 1-2' in width. If just the desk I could do for $175. Thanks! Steve11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hello Steve, your bid is very fair and I appreciate the options. Pickup, reads, Thursday and Friday Nov.4th & 5th? Just want to make sure of dates so I have people in position at my end. Not sure of the hub size but most likely correct. Since I had desired pick up between Nov. 8-12th, I need to make some calls. Can you give me a few hours to seal the deal? Thanks, Rocky11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: Sure thing Rocky. Pick up would be either this Thurs or Friday, with delivery in Carmel Valley over the weekend, most likely Saturday afternoon. Steve11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hi Steve, sorry I cannot move anything until next week (mon-fri). We are selling a business and need to keep the office together until the end of this week to finish up work per our agreement with new owners. I understand this may not work for you. Let me know. Best, Rocky11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: Understood. I may be able to do it next week after Wednesday, but this Saturday is definitely out? Steve11/2/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hi Steve, yes this Saturday is out due to the offices being packed up. Files, desks and bookcases need to be emptied by several different people so there is no guarantee the items can be ready for you. It will need to be next week. Let me know if things change for you. Best, Rocky 11/3/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hey Rocky, I don't think that I'll be available next week to do this. Sorry. Steve11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hi Steve, don't know if you are still available? Things have changed and tomorrow, Friday, items could be picked up. Let me know. Rocky11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Oh, got it. Well, I have taken a pet along with this shipment so I need to take a vehicle no larger than a cargo van so the pooch is able to have enough room. I don't think that I will be able to take the propeller but I might be able to get the desk and chair. Steve11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hello Steve, Desk and Chair are fine for tomorrow. $175? Do you have someone to help you load? Will you be arriving in Carmel Valley on Saturday? Rocky11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: I could probably do this for $200, as my course has changed a bit so Carmel is a bit out of the way. However, pick up would need to be either late Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, preferably Saturday. In regards to drop, it would probably not be over the weekend as I have scheduled my run for Saturday and Sunday. Worst case scenario, next Weds. Sorry to amend so many details but I have had a few confirmations since we last spoke so logistics have changed considerably. Thanks! Steve11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: S, It looks like we are back to the original deal with ALL items, next Wednesday. Can we seal the deal? Thanks, Rocky11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Sorry I didn't make this more clear in the other correspondence: my recent confirmations have me booked through next Friday and I fly out to NYC Friday evening. What is the latest on Friday that I could pick up? Steve11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hi Steve, thank you for trying to make this work. Doesn't look like it was meant to be. Thanks again and good luck on your journeys. Best, Rocky11/4/2010Report a Violation
Question:
11/3/2010
Hello Rocky, I can pick up these things at two locations this week or any other time. I will need $450 just to cover cost. The gas, time, and help needed make it cost that much. I am Licensed, Bonded, Insured. JamesReport a Violation
Response: Hello James, These items would need to be picked up on Nov. 8, 9 or 10th. The office items are between the hours of 9:30-2p. I don't know the hours of the El Monte Airport but I can find out. The desk is a special piece and will need to be wrapped. Can you do that and are you available? Rocky11/4/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hello Rocky, I can make myself available for this shipment. The timeing is specific. Two Stops. It would be very unlikely that I will find another shipment to help cover my cost. I would need $600 to make this round trip work for me. Thank You James11/5/2010Report a Violation
Response: I just made contact with another client up north. I may be able to give better pricing and get the Prop & DEsk. James11/5/2010Report a Violation
Response: J, your pricing is good...just having some issues with the propeller pick up. Maybe only desk and chair??? Can you wait until late Saturday or Sunday for a confirmation on all or some items? Sorry, unexpected problem. Best, Rocky11/6/2010Report a Violation
Response: Will someone be available to help get the desk down These restauraunt back stairs to the alley ? I do not have a clear understanding of the stairs. James11/6/2010Report a Violation

AMOVER is going to be in LA on the 8th. I can pick up the office items then. Look for our bid. RoyReport a Violation
Response: Hello, Thank you for your patience. Due to issues with pick up at the airport, the propeller is no longer part of this transport. I only need the DESK AND CHAIR moved in West Hollywood. It will need to be wrapped properly and I can have help for you at the pick-up location during the loading process. Will this change the bid amount and will this arrangemnet work for you? Best, Rocky11/7/2010Report a Violation
Response: AMOVER can pick up desk on tuesday.Look for our bid. My original bid was for the desk only so there is no change in the bid amount. Roy11/7/2010Report a Violation

Just recieved a request to RE-BID? I did bid once and you let it expire. AMOVERReport a Violation
Response: Hello, I ran into an issue with the propeller pick-up. Waiting for an answer from the airport. It may be only desk and chair. I should know by tomorrow. Are you are still interested? Thank you, Rocky11/6/2010Report a Violation
Response: I am only interested in the desk and chair. Going to the airport is a real time consumer. Each minute is one mile in my business. Pick up of desk and chair on Tuesday. Bid good for one day. AMOVER11/7/2010Report a Violation
Response: Hello, when is your arrival date & time? Also, this is an expensive desk and I need to make sure it is packaged and insured properly. Can you expand on that? Thank you, Rocky11/7/2010Report a Violation
Response: I don't know when my arrival date and time is? I haven't even picked up the desk yet? On my bid it shows delivery within 5 days after pick up. I will blanket wrap and shrink wrap desk. Insurance is provided at .60 cents per pound . If that is not sufficient then we will add $75 to give you full coverage. I will place a new bid. AMOVER11/7/2010Report a Violation
Question:
11/7/2010
Sir, I have cancelled my bid. You responded to me right away earliar today yet now that I have added the insurance you requested and given you a new bid you don't accept my bid or anyone else's for that matter. You are making a really simple transaction horrendously diffecult.Good Luck. AMOVERReport a Violation
Response: Hello, as I said in my previous email, thank you for your patience. I work for a Search & Rescue Team and if I get an emergency call I am off and running trying to save a life.....just walked in the door. Your insurance was not a problem and I did not except other bids because I was having issues with the airport security and getting the propeller picked up which I did not expect. I will take responsibilty for not researching this part of the leg of the trip prior to listing but you read like a grumpy moving guy and I don't do this enough to be the "perfect" client. And...by the way it's madame.11/7/2010Report a Violation
