    Hi Mel, we could collect this on the 26th and deliver on the 27th/28th, we would take extremely good care of the sideboard like we do all the items that we move but we would ensure that the sideboard would have a few extra blankets for padding and protection. Thank you Warren

    Hi Warren,

    Thanks for your lovely message and I really appreciate you mentioning the care you would pay in delivering it. That means a lot! How would a delivery date of 30th/1st work instead? We havenโ€™t yet moved in but will have the house keys by then. No worries if not I will see what I can do.

    Thank you
    Mel

    Hi Mel, Very welcome, I had a good look at the sideboard and understand your concerns with protecting it, Its a very nice piece. We wouldn't be able to do the 30th/1st unfortunately, we would be in Auckland on the 26th, heading to Wellington on the 27th, Collecting Wellington on 28th and back in Auckland for delivery's on the 29th. It would be me and my wife and she is taking a few days off to help me, then going back to her "normal" job on the 30th. So we only have that time frame available, hopefully that will work, Thanks Warren

    Hi Warren,

    Thanks for taking a good look. Isnโ€™t it nice, I was so thrilled to win the auction. I think itโ€™s the round glass thatโ€™s most vulnerable maybe. No worries to those dates, I do understand what itโ€™s like trying to juggle multiple deliveries and your schedule. Let me see if I am allowed to access the house on the 28th. The seller in Auckland is away until 27th I believe due to family matters, so Iโ€™ll have to check in with him too to see if you could pick it up as early as 26th. Iโ€™ll come back to you as soon as I can โ˜บ๏ธ Thanks once again. Mel

    Hi Mel, looks like a great buy, very unique as well. We might be able to push out the collection to the 27th if that helps. Let me know what works and we will see if we cant figure something out, Thanks Warren

    Hi Warren, thank you! Yes I agree, one of a kind. Thatโ€™s very nice of you and could be a big help - thanks for offering. Iโ€™ll message the seller and see when he could allow you to collect and weโ€™ll go from there. Fingers crossed we can work something out! Thanks again, Mel

    Hi Warren,

    Unfortunately they can only do the 28th which is a real shame! Are you planning any other trips to Wellington soon?

    Hi Mel, sorry for the late reply, The latest collection we could do would be the morning of the 27th, it doesn't look like the dates will work out unfortunately. I'm always looking for trips to Wellington but nothing planned at the moment other than the trip on the 27th/28th. Thanks Warren

    Hi Warren, the only other option is for a collection tomorrow (which is very late notice I know) and then that would leave you with it in your van for some time. So possibly not very practical for you at all! You've been wonderful to deal with and I thank you for that. Mel

    Hi Mel, If we can make it work we can collect tomorrow, that's not a problem at all, we have a small storage unit at our local storage company that we use, when we get ready for out trip we can easily collect and deliver to you. Would that be ok with you? Thanks Warren

    Hi Warren, that's great to know and if its not too much trouble that would be absolutely amazing! I've messaged the seller, Dennis, and will let you know as soon as I hear back from him. If he is happy to, I can exchange details/accept the quote etc. to coordinate. Thanks again and apologies for the last minute thought here. Thanks, Mel

    Hi Warren

    Thank you very much!

    I have great news, our seller (Dennis) will accommodate tomorrow and work around your schedule. He has asked for you to get in touch to coordinate - is that OK with you? I just went to add his details but it wonโ€™t let me as itโ€™s on a community forum so, Iโ€™ll accept the quote and share it privately then.

    Let me know and thanks once again for everything! :)

    Mel

    Hi there team,

    Thanks for quoting for this furniture move. We have a pretty fragile antique buffet, mostly in that its quite ornate and there is curved glass that if broken would be hard to replace these days. Would you be able to cover this appropriately with blankets etc. to ensure its less likely to break?

    In terms of the collection date in Auckland, how would it work for you to collect it any day from 28th? We are moving into our new house in Martinborough on the 1st of May but will have keys from the 30th.

    Look forward to hearing back!

    Thanks for your time.

Hardwood Vintage Walnut Buffet - Fragile

Hi there,

This is a fragile move as its an old piece of furniture and has rounded glass which is hard to replace if broken. We would be hoping for the mover we choose, to pack blankets around this carefully for safe travel.

Thanks so very much and look forward to hearing from you!

Mel
