Hi cindy what approximately would. Your budget or allowance be ....we have a 14ft x 6ft . X 6ft. Enclosed trailer space. & 8' x. 5' x 5' enclosed space. Believe we could stack by hand to fit all them... We need to know. Days. & Hour's. For The pickup location could allow...........& if there is possibly any weekend hours with appointment.........is these DOT. GOV. Sale.. These will Require full cargo trailer & truck space............?????????Report a Violation
Response: These desks were bought on [website URL removed] from a school district in Texas. I really have no idea of whether the desks will fit in a 14 x 6 x 6. I can ask the government representative to measure the space the desks currently occupy. They could probably be stacked higher if needed. I have already submitted a request for days and hours of operation for loading and will forward that answer when I get it. I don't really have a budget. When I bid, I thought the transportation would be $1500 or less because a local freight company told me to plan$1.30 to $2.00 per mile and it's about a 700 mile trip. 1/10/2014In Violation
Response: Let get yours taken care of before weekend rolls up again......we are still. Have another trip\load. Preplanned..right after we finish yours deliverys........we do all labor loading\disassembly here if required too fit more or upto 250 desk...in Texas....yall reassemble. If required at all...... help unload ...in ALABAMA.1/14/2014Report a Violation
Question:
1/10/2014
what is your budget? can we pick this up on the 14th?Report a Violation
Response: Yes it can be picked up on the 14th. I don't really have a budget. I bid on the desks because a local shipper told me to expect to pay between $1.30 to $2.00 per mile and the price per desk was only $2 to bid so I figured we could get them here for a reasonable price and end up way ahead. I am buying these for a very poor school district that my non-profit group supports. I was thinking shipping would be about $1500 based on $2/mile. I didn't know how to estimate the cost of loading the truck. I can hire hourly local people in Texas to load if that's needed but would prefer to pay the transport company to load the desks. They aren't heavy but there's 320 of them. 1/10/2014Report a Violation
Question:

Did you also take into consideration the time takes too load\labor too properly fit and not damage the desk legs & tops. Too fit unless you like too pay only for one full semi load even if only stacks 5-6 ft high and takes up 18 pallets. A normal size semi can hold 20-22 --24. 4x4x8 high. Pallets. On floor space...thats the bids you seem to be receiving......we were considering near the less amount too hand stake and load ::::: yall could help unload 1 by 1 at your storage doorway.....lets find out if they have weekend hours or 7a-5pm monday -----Friday hour's.........maybe look on the auction web site for these locations hours on one of there other listings......it may be there or call a school locally within that district. Ask too speck too purchasing or HR ..??? IDEAS MAY help save $$$$ Report a Violation
Response: I am good with one semi load but I have to remove the rest from the storage facility. I may be able to find someone to do that after your folks load up the best of the desks and leave the broken ones behind. We would definitely have help unloading on our end and I can try to find hourly laborers to load on the pick up if needed. I have left voice mail and emails asking for hours. Their answering machine says weekdays 7:300-3:45. I will try to talk to them again on Monday. No one answered the phone but it was close to closing time when I called.1/10/2014Report a Violation

Response: We are ok with with multiple shipments so long as we can get the desks removed from the school district storage site by the 19th. We don't have a specific deadline on the receiving end. 1/14/2014Report a Violation

Question:
1/10/2014
Hello Cindy: This is a very large job. We have a 37 1/2 foot enclosed trailer and I believe that we could only take 90 desks. Would you be interested on a bid for transportation of that many desks. If you want to move them all together, I believe that you will need a full semi. Sincerely, AngieReport a Violation
Response: I really only need a portion of the desks but I'm obligated to remove the whole lot from the storage facility and the more desks I can move, the cheaper the price per desk. So, I think I need a full semi load. 1/10/2014Report a Violation
Response: I agree. Thank you for your reply and good luck.1/10/2014Report a Violation

Hello! I can bring a 25 foot box truck for these desks, and if necessary I can make 2 trips. Alex - All Things MovedReport a Violation
Question:
1/13/2014
How do these need to be transported in a enclosed or open trailer what's budgetReport a Violation
Response: Enclosed or open trailer o.k. Trying to keep cost at $10/desk. We don't need them all. All must be moved from storage site. Broken ones can be disposed of. We paid $700 for lot of desks so budget for transportation depends on how many desks you can bring in one load. 1/14/2014Report a Violation
Question:
1/13/2014
Cindy, Mark Holmes with All Around Moving, we would like to earn your business. We think we could get almost all of this in our trailer if we stack them right without braking them down and if we brake them down we could get all of them. How soon could we pick up and delv?Report a Violation
Response: I need the desks picked up by the 19th but sooner is fine. Delivery date is flexible. I don't need all the desks. You could sort them and bring as many of the best desks as fit, discarding any broken ones. I need to keep the total price per desk at about $10. I paid $700 for the lot. So, if I get 1700 desks, transportation needs to be about $1000. If I get 250 desks, transportation needs to be less that $1800. 1/14/2014Report a Violation

Response: Can you guarantee to get at least 175 desks in one shipment? I have no idea how the dimensions of your proposed truck and trailer relate to the desks. If more than 175 would fit, that would be great. 1/14/2014Report a Violation

1/14/2014
Need to accept soon.... were 3-4 hrs drive away. Allowing us little time Too get everything loaded. Out of there location.... 1-2. Days. There only open. These week Wednesday \ Thursday....??? Report a Violation
Response: I sent paperwork last week for them to remove taxes. I can't pay until they do that. I'm trying to get that fixed. Without me paying for the desks, you can't pick them up. I will contact you when I know. I need the cost of delivered desks to be less than $10 each inclusive of the $700 I paid for the desks. So, 135 desks for your bid price is a little high. I have another bidder (more money) that can bring all the desks resulting in a cheaper price per desk. I will let you know as soon as I possibly can. Please don't pass on other work waiting on me. I am trying to get this finalized today though.1/14/2014Report a Violation
