Hello - mentioned is 'special services'. Do you provide any crating and/or packaging services?
Rebecca – Thank you for your response - your information was most useful. You provided me with two ‘white glove service’ options; one complete - one partial. What I am requesting is mainly the partial white glove service; packaging for the pick up only and arranging the delivery to the destination to have a lift gate so I can unload. Would you be able to estimate this white glove service? And I am assuming this service would be in addition to the $255 delivery quote; correct? Thank you for your assistance. Rich
OK – we are almost there – just a few more clarifications so I can make an informed decision to hire American Freight for this job. First off and for grounding, I purchased this piece from eBay for $600, I am not a shipper and I have never met the people who I purchased this piece from but they will cooperate and accommodate in any way they can to get this piece to me. So, the packaging and loading will be from a residence in East Amherst, NY. It will then be transported and delivered to my residence where I will unload it. This service will cost an estimated total of $628 – correct? You asked if I could pick-up this piece at a terminal to keep the bid price of $628 lower. Yes, I could arrange to pick-up this piece since it will already be packaged/crated. My question is; how far would this terminal be from my residence in Uxbridge, MA (location of terminal) and if I did pick-up, how much lower or what would my estimated cost be? Thanks for your patience and informative responses. Rich
OK, we are just a response away from my getting an estimate (I hope) – this is what I am requesting Rebecca; I am requesting the shipper, American Freight, package or arrange to have packaged the hutch at the residence in East Amherst, NY and deliver the hutch to a local terminal to my residence in Uxbridge, MA. Once delivered to the terminal I will be notified and can arrange to pick it up.
Correct me if I am wrong, but this is the service you mentioned that would be the least expensive and if so, this is the service I would like. Least expensive meaning if I am opting to bypass residential delivery and pick up the piece myself at a local terminal. (I thought the white glove service was the packaging) Anyway, I think we have it down now. And yes, the residential pickup will need a lift gate.
With this information would you be able to give me a good estimate? My target was to not pay more for the packaging and shipping than the piece cost me which was $600. Thank you. Rich
