Thanks for the information , please I want us to seal this deal and I want you to consider the item sold.

I want you to know that pick up and mover's fee will be included in your payment, you'll make the pick up money payable to the movers when you cash the check,movers amount has been per-negotiated and movers will schedule time for pick up as I have other properties to be moved along with it and they need to pay for tax and insurance.

I assume this is based on trust, reply as soon as possible so I can proceed immediate with the insuring of the payment check effect

The couch is in good condition. We are selling because this was my husbands bachelor furniture and I've redecorated to fit more of my tastes, so we bought a reclining set in a different color to go with our new look.
The top of the coffee table has scratches on it, (you can see them in the picture). But other than that all is in good condition.

The throw pillows are not included in the price. But if you want them, let me know and we can work something out. I have a pillow cover over most of them that goes with my French-country style. The actual pillow underneath goes with this furniture set. If you'd like a picture feel free to ask.

Does your son use PayPal? That is a much more secure form of payment, and much quicker.

Upon your acceptance I will go ahead and delete the add. Please have your son contact me to establish a date for the movers upon completion of our payment arrangement.
