Ok good, thanks for the details, i have already gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it However, I will not be coming to view it because of my Job,i am a Navy instructor for new recruits.I won't be able to leave the base for now but i can actually work on sending a transport company to come for it,i would have come down myself but due to my work schedule i'm little busy to leave my assignment, so you have to assure me that its in condition described. You may now consider me a favorite buyer and if possible withdraw the posting from the site immediately so that I can be rest assured that it is all mine . I don't mind adding an extra $200.00 for you just to take down the posting.
I will send you the money and wait till your money clears, once payment clears they will come for the pick up and my quickest payment option right now is PayPal as I prefer to use paypal for most online transactions, You can easily get money in your paypal and transfer it into your bank account.Moreover i can wait till payment confirmation clear before the pick up. If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to and sign up. its very easy. Or You can alternatively send your full name bsb and account number if you have no PayPal account.
