    I would use the service! I think it is a great idea and $250 is a fair price.

    Things I would like to see is UP TO DATE and ACCURATE schedule for pickup and drop offs with load/room info.
    For example, I have no issue with a game being picked up and sitting on a trailer for a few weeks till you make it up my direction, but I would like to be able ot sign in to see where you are and when you plan to come by.

    I can also see using this data to look for pins. For example if I see that you will be in STL area next weekend and have room for 4 then I may look to see what is available from sources in that area.

    A big part of white glove service is good communication and knowledge of where my game is enroute and where you are for possible pickups.

    Quoted from Zampinator:

    but your going to wear out your vehicle/equipment & not make enough money to barely do maintenance & buy gas, let alone make enough $ to replace your current equipment.

    I am guessing he is planning on mutliple pins coordinated in a smaller radius for each destination. 4 pins on a single trip and making $1000 is not too bad of a haul...

    This of course means willingness of buyers/sellers to have a more open timeframe of pick up and delivery, but for $250 I am happy with waiting a month for delivery.

    zamp >> what do you suggest as the best vehicle for someone to use that is going to do this?

    I have always thought it would be a nice feature for pinside to have a map function where you can place "looking for transport" or "transport offered".

    For example I take a trip out to CO twice each year and often have room to transport a game or 2 each way.

    I also often buy games and then have a set timeframe to pick them up and could use this feature. i.e. "transport wanted: pickup in Minneapolis: deliver to Madison. and then someone driving could opt to make a couple hundo...

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    Jay delivered my BSD yesterday. Very easy to work with, and he basically he took care of everything. I'd highly recommend his delivery service.

    nice! You are on a buying spree! Did you get the BSD form Troy?

    Just spoke with him. He has been down in FL for a few months for work. He will be back shortly and offering his transport services this fall/winter.
