Default Need help in Hollywood Fl, free leaning post if you can.

I'm needing a piece of equipment picked up, partially crated, and freighted to me from Hollywood Fl. It's a metal bender which, with accessories, weighs around 600 lbs. An individual there has it for sale but is unwilling to deal with shipping.

If you could pick this thing up, strap and shrink wrap it to a pallet, make sure loose parts are contained and drop it off at a freight terminal, I'd compensate you with a new leaning post or other similar item. I, of course, will pay all costs for shipping. The leaning post will be anodized aluminum, complete but without pads which are easily available as stock items.

I'd appreciate the help if anyone can spare the time.

Dang, dang dang, I am saving for a leaning post.
Hollywood is not far from me, but I can't get a day off right now with vacation coming up. Is the bender there waiting on pickup right now?

I could possibly leave early am and get there when they open, pack the unit and deliver to shipping facility and still get to work by noon.

I am very interested in doing this, please give more details.

In my exitement I didn't think of the details. I have flatbed trailer but no forklift.

When do you need it done by? My office is only 20 minutes from there. Is there a way to get it on a u-haul and off again at the freight place?

I'm in no great rush to recieve the bender but do need it picked up in the next week. So it could be picked up and then palletized (you'll need to obtain a pallet) and then dropped off at the shippers at your convenience. I need to check with the freight company and ensure that strapping to a pallet is acceptable. Will do this tomorrow.

For a top, I'd go down pick it up and deliver it to you.
