    He should have something on his truck. I don't think they would expect all residents to have a cherry picker, or forklift.

    yeah...I wanted mine in a week too, but it took 3. Watch out for unintened snags. My motor was on a truck that broke down and therefor caused a 2 week delay. Hell, I had even ordered the motor a month in advance, and told Steve not to ship it until I wanted and it didnt come!!! :angry: Oh well, it wasn't his fault, it was the shipping co's fault.

    you and 2-3 friends can definatly carry the pallet (probly not too far, but you can get it to where it needs to go)
    i had to move my pallet like 3 or 4 times before i actually got it in the car

    I used the old skateboard trick to move a safe once, suprising how much weight they can hold.

    I'm down to 175 from 230, 6 months ago. I move 200+ lb appliances all day... so this will be a walk in the park.

    thanks again for all the help this last week...
