Thanks for getting back,I'm fine with the price likewise the condition
as described on the advert,
I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in
New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to
phone at the moment,its 10days off and 20days on,which is why I
contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at
the moment?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 the
courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery.As reside in Australia

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 pick up agent so you don't
have to worry about that.

Await your reply
