Hello! How complicated is the loading and unloading situation? Stairs, other barriers, etc? Alex - All Things MovedReport a Violation
Response: Pretty simple. There is a driveway on both ends and only two steps from the driveway into the house on both ends also.8/15/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok I have a ramp door on my trailer, so it would be relatively easy to load. But I travel alone so I would need probably at least 2 helpers on both sides. Is that possible? I would most likely pick up on 8/19. Alex - All Things Moved8/15/2014Report a Violation
Response: I might be able to arrange it. Can you give me an estimate and when you'll be delivering. 8/15/2014Report a Violation
Response: Well if you can give me enough time to find a few other things going to Austin, and you will supply helpers on both ends, I can do $300. I would keep it locked in my trailer at home in Allen TX until I went the rest of the way. Alex - All Things Moved8/15/2014Report a Violation
Response: Do you think you could do it on the 19th after work hours, so my husband and friend could help load it. Thanks so much! It's going to my sister in Austin and she will have help on her end. Do we need to have it wrapped and ready to go? 8/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes I could get it in the evening on the 19th. If you want to plastic wrap it and remove any loose components before I get there that would be excellent. I will also pad it with moving blankets and strap it in, once we get it in the trailer.8/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Alex, I think we've got this coordinated for pick up and my sister will work on the delivery one she knows the timeframe. When do you think it would arrive in Austin? My husband can move the piano to the garage this weekend and then it just needs to be loaded into the trailer. Becky8/16/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am not sure when I will go to Austin until I do some searching for loads. If you have a deadline, let me know, and I will tell you if I think I can make it by then.8/17/2014Report a Violation

Response: 1st week in September both pick up and deliver8/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I have to be moved out by September 1st. Is there any way to make that work? 8/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Can it be picked up on the 2nd by chance 8/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: I think we can do the 2nd. We have renters moving in the 1st and they would be alright with us storing the piano in the garage overnight. If we can do the 2nd, I will go ahead accept the bid. Thanks so much! 8/19/2014Report a Violation

Hi Rebecca. I never heard back. Are you still interested in getting this done? I am in the Chicago area now but I will be headed south soon. Alex - All Things MovedReport a Violation
Response: Hi Alex, I didn't hear back about the turnaround time and storage temperatures in Texas. I am concerned about it sitting on 100 degree weather for too long. Sorry I thought you couldn't find any. Other Austin shipments so the piano is still in the house.8/19/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Rebecca. I never got any message about the temperatures and such. It must not have gone through. I don't currently have any other things going to Austin but I can still pick the piano up today if you like.8/19/2014Report a Violation
