Default Need Help pickinh up a sheet metal part in Amelia, Ohio

I want to bid on a sheet metal part on EBay, but the seller will not ship. It is in a wooden box about 12" x 12" by about 3-1.2 - 4ft long and might weigh about 30 pounds. It is in Amelia, Ohio just Southeast of Cincinnati. I would be willing to pay for gas, and am thinking some one might pick it up and bring it to Oblong. If you might be able to help, or have a better idea, please PM me or email me at: wildcad@comporium.net

I live pretty far south in Rock Hill, S.C.

Thanks in advance for any workable ideas.

Could you not get UPS or another courier to collect? When I specify no postage I often get buyers who arrange their own collection. Daft as it sounds, it's often cheaper to pay a courier than it is for fuel costs. Just a thought.

Hey Will try UShip as well. You can contract someone and they will pick it up and deliver it to you. Might take a few weeks but it is a good alternative.

Default Shipping an item.

Will,
Try a local moving company. I had an item picked up and packed by a van line and I had a trucking company pick it up at the dock. I was charged $60. an hour for a truck and one man.

Hey, wait....Eddie Lawson was known as "steady Eddie", not Fast Eddie. The nickname "Fast" was given to "Fast Freddie Spencer."

OK, so I'm lost in a GP racing time warp.............
