Question:
8/3/2014
I'm traveling from Anaheim to Houston on Aug 10th, arriving two days later. I drive a new MBZ Sprinter van with dual a/c and room for your item. You'd have to get it crated or allow me to move it wrapped and stabilized in my van. It will not be mixed with other freight. Empty van with me and my wife going to Houston to see the kids. Report a Violation
Response: Hi! That sounds great! Only problem is I am flying into lax on the afternoon of aug 10 and won't be able to load until around 4pm. I'm sure you are leaving early that day? 8/3/2014Report a Violation
Question:
8/3/2014
Not sure I can put it off with leaving a day later. I guess it may depend on how much I was being paid for the safe transport. Report a Violation
Response: What would you think is a fair price? I am helping the buyer find a shipper.... 8/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm going to measure my van to make sure it fits well and then I'll bid.8/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok sounds good. 8/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: The painting would have to sit at a slight angle as my van interior is like 5'8" high. Is it rigid enough to sit like that for an 1800 mile ride? Next thing would be what I'd charge. With pick up in Los Angeles and drop off at the curb in downtown Houston, I'd have to get $1200 for the job. 8/3/2014Report a Violation
Question:
8/4/2014
What are your thoughts on me carrying your painting to Houston? I won't have anything else in the van to insure even more it's safety. My vehicle is not a cargo van. I have a dual a/c passenger van I use with the seats removed. I need to know ASAP as I'd be delaying leaving for a day to accommodate you.Report a Violation
Response: Hi there! Thank you for your response. So the distance from my studio to drop off in galleria area is actually 1550 miles, not 1800 miles. Having the painting sit at an angle should be ok (it will be wrapped) but $1200 is almost double than what my client can pay. She can do $800 at most. Thank you for offer and willingness to consider this job and delay your trip! If $800 sounds good to you then great! If not, again thank you! 8/4/2014Report a Violation
Response: There's no way I can pick up on Saturday the 9th? BTW: I have kids in Houston that I drive out to see all the time, so this trip for me is a leisurely ride.... Let me know if there's anything possible with Saturday.8/4/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am flying back into lax Sunday afternoon unfortunately. I can't get there before then.:( 8/4/2014Report a Violation
Question:
8/5/2014
I'm still deciding on staying another day before leaving.... I'll get back to you by Friday or sooner. What you quoted is fine... Be back...Report a Violation
Response: Ok thanks. 8/5/2014Report a Violation
Response: one more question. This piece is rigid enough to ride in a diagonal position? It'll be secure and not move around but how thick is the wood panel? Maybe a good layer or two of large bubble wrap over your packing would be wise... Do you have a photo of the item wrapped? Wish I could give you my number so we could talk easier.8/5/2014Not in Violation
Response: I am currently out if town now until Sunday afternoon. I haven't wrapped it yet bc I sold it right as I was leaving. I have someone at the place where it is but I need to wrap it myself. I always wrap with bubble wrap and paper underneath. It takes time bc it's large. Yes it can handle staying at diagonal. It's 2" deep. Wood panel no canvas. I am doing impt family stuff today but I can talk tomorrow for sure. My phone is below. :) thanks. I will be free to talk w u tomorrow from noon-3pm pst if u want to sked a talk?

Question:
8/6/2014
I gather you won't be needing my services.... Report a Violation
Response: Hi I called uship to ask if the additional $155 u say was added on was correct and they said everything should be inclusive for the $800 and u r not to do that. I declined bc the $955 plus their $10 fee was not acceptable but thank you so much8/6/2014Report a Violation
Question:
8/6/2014
What??? The site ask me to bid what you said you'd be willing to pay. I put in $800 and it adds a booking fee. In the end when item is delivered, I end up with $800 in my account. If I did it for $800 total, I'd have to adjust the bid to get it down to $800 total and the net to me is like $665. Report a Violation
Question:
8/6/2014
I just tried it. $670 bid makes the total with booking fee at $800. I guess they figure I'm the one who pays the booking fee. I've already booked two other items for Saturday pick up... and now leaving on Sunday. I'm going to contact U-Ship as you did as well..Report a Violation
Question:
8/6/2014
