Thanks for getting back to me, so sorry that i couldn\'t call you due to the nature of my work,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 15days off and 15days 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.Please I am buying it for my son who just graduated ontop of his class in Australia national university (ANU).He studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him .I want it as a surprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT presently.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery after have sorted with the payment ..

As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service as i have my N.A.B account attached to my ppal account, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. Cheers .

Thanks for the detailed explanation and photo 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 now upgraded my paypal account to business merchant account so i can transfer the fund into your nominated 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 .

PS,Please confirm your firm price as i dont want misunderstanding in the payment

Sounded too good to be true. Why would you buy a 2nd hand vehicle from interstate and unseen, as a gift when he could buy one in the capital of NT for a cheaper price than I was selling this one? How does one arrange a courier at 11.30 pm local time on a Sunday night? Thank you Scamdex.
