As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT),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 at and I will make the payment through paypal,this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the freight agent so you don't have to worry about that. Thanks.... Await your reply
