I am buying this for my first son who just graduated ontop of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift and a surprise package for him ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery to my son.I will really appreciate if you can email more info.

As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using paypal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.

Thanks for the explanation ,am satisfied with your firm asking price and I really appreciate your honesty as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am at work ,just want to buy the it as a surprise package for my son to show my appreciation in my absentia and i really believe he will really enjoy it.I would have love to ask for inspection but am making it a %100 surprise package for him and i dont want him to know about it until it delivered. Happy to inform you that i have an upgraded paypal account (business merchant account) so i can make a direct deposit to your nominated bank account from my paypal account . Please advise me of the details so i can make the transfer ASAP and after have sorted out with the payment i have a private courier that will come for the pick up and make a personal delivery for my son after the payment clears into your account .
Kind Regards, Neil.
Thanks for the payment details and am happy to proceed with the payment, however i just got a mail from the shipping company now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,350aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the China.
As you are well aware of, I am away at sea and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be ok with you if I add the $1,350aud to the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here. Cheers.
