Default CF postal service. Help moving parts

Seeing what kind of response and interest there is for a forum brethren shipping aid.
This would be strictly for member to member purchases. No Ebay or Craigslist purchases. No COD's for purchases. And definitely no contraband.
I would think parties involved would help compensate the person traveling with the item(s)
Say if you're travelling across the country and have a little space in your trunk,trailer, even carry bag. Would you mind hauling along an item another CF member has purchased from another member? Hopefully the parties selling and buying would not inconvenience the person who is assisting by hauling the item.

What is the forum consensus?


As a for instance I purchased a set of rear louvers from a member in N.J. I'm in Phoenix Az. If someone is trailering a car or moving and has room & headed this direction would you mind hauling these for me. Even if your coming within 300 miles of me I'd be willing to meet you. I'm willing pay you for your trouble.

Great idea.
I did a little of that on impromptu basis when I was a sales rep in the MW.
Retired now.

Count me in.
Great for moving big bulky stuff that would cost a fortune thru the regular channels.

I 2nd that!
A nice gesture from one member to another.
I would gladly participate for another member if I could be of help.
I try to make Carlisle each year so I could drop off an item to another member if someone left it with me.

I not only agree with you, I have done this for forum members. I delivered a hood in NC when taking a chassis to GA. I delivered doors when taking a motor to another location in NC. I have dropped off parts in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina and Georgia to date.

I typically post that I am traveling and have some room and have success about 20% of the time. Something more formal and more reliable would be welcomed and I am all for it sir.

I also think there are key shows throughout the year that can and have become "hubs of exchange" in past years such as Spring Carlisle, Fall Carlisle, GM Carlisle, and of course Corvettes at Carlisle. Others?

Look forward to hearing more and again, great idea.

Best regards,

David

Hey David.
You ever make it back to GA (northeast area - hr east of Atl)....feel free to stop by.

I follow what you do in the Parts section and I like your style.

Thank you Dennis. I had the opportunity to meet Richard454 and Dub in October when I delivered an engine to him in Charlotte. I made stops in West Virginia, Henderson, North Carolina, another drop between Henderson and Charlotte, and then spent the night in Charlotte. Pulled my little wagon for this one, enjoyed the drive.
If I am getting down that way I will definitely check in with you.
Best regards,
David

Sounds like you had a nice road trip.
Happy New Year.

I live in Easton, Pennsylvania. Near me are Interstate I-78 (two miles away); Interstate I-80 (12 miles away); Interstate I-76 (20 miles Away); Interstate I-95 (forty miles away); Interstate I-81 (seventy miles away). I-84, I-87, and I-287 are also within striking distance of where I call home.

My point here is I would guess many of us live near enough to major Interstate Highways that moving parts around should not be a huge deal or a massive inconvenience; especially if we are helping out a fellow Corvette Community member.

When I taught at Michigan State University I drove back there every six weeks and I took cars, frames, doors, etc. back and forth to Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania. I made a trip to Georgia to deliver a frame to a returning veteran. I have been to Florida (twice) picking up and delivering parts. Been to North Carolina; South Carolina; and Maryland as well.

I have a trip coming up in early February from Pennsylvania to West Virginia delivering a car and picking up a car for friends here on the Forum. I-76 to I-81 on this route down; then I-81 to I-76 back again.
Probably a two day run and there will be room for some parts and are in no hurry to get them moving.

Items that are hard to move traditionally are hoods, doors, bumpers, fiberglass parts, wheels and tires, etc. Glad to help out if I can, give it some thought. PM me if you have a need and I will see what I can do.

Now if a tag team could happen how great would that be; but I am a dreamer at times.

Let me know if I can help.

Best regards,

David

I have a feeling this is a long shot but if anyone is going from or through Dallas to Phoenix ( or within a 100 mile or so radius) I'm wanting to purchase the rear clip from forum member Bighead. If you have the space and are making the trip this direction I would compensate for your troubles.
Thanks in advance.

I live about 800 yard from the NY/Quebec, Canada border, 45 minutes south of Montreal and 2 miles from Vermont. I can offer a staging/storage point and often receive packages for my Canadian buddies.

My vehicle storage is limited to outside but it comes in handy for the required 72hr import wait requirement for Canadians importing vehicles. Located in Champlain, NY just off I-87 the NYC-Montreal corridor.

Have no problem even being a transfer or staging point. I'm not on this forum very much...just send me an email: BorderDrop at yahoo dot com.

Great offer Ed.
We could use more like u along the border with Canada, as we all know the costs and difficulties shipping from here.
