    As always, toss me some cash for gas and beer. Of course dump fees are your responsibility as well.

    Sorry... stupid question. Are you lending out the truck, or the truck plus yourself as a driver?

    Both are incredibly gracious... the former running the risk of people damaging/beating on it, and the latter taking up your time.

    I wish I had seen the thread before getting a washer and dryer delivered a week ago. On the other hand, the guy I bought it from moved them in my basement for me so I guess that was a plus....

    Honestly though - props to you. If it was me, I'd put a restriction on it... just to ensure you're not dicked around by occasional or new members. Say, minimum 500 posts to ensure you're helping out a site contributor, and someone who will be accountable to the forum.

    LOL, no I always drive and go with the truck. As trusting as I am, no way am I letting some random drive it and take off with it for who knows how long.

    HAHAHA!

    I must say props to codetrap for letting me borrow his trailer last weekend. Without it I would've had to do 2 trips to move which would've taken double the amount of time. Never even got to meet him, just picked up the trailer and returned it when I was done.

    Understandable. But then, you're not just donating your truck but also your time. I commend you good sir. I like to think I'm a pretty good guy, but wouldn't be one to lend out my truck to people I'm not familiar with... especially a new one.

    Bump!

    Might as well add onto this than to start new thread.

    Spikers is my friend, but I was still in need of an open box truck for a tall item to pickup. (my truck has a topper)

    But he's the kind of guy that'll try to find time to help people when he can. (of course donations; beer/money/etc.. always welcome lol)

    I called Chris in a bind, I had an oversize parcel that landed at the freight company's yard in Calgary. (the shipping company were a pain to deal with trying to figure out charges from their Cgy warehouse to a private residence address; I'm guessing my parcel is too "small" of a job to send a full size 18 wheeler semi, etc... So the shipping company gave me the bullshit of trying to local their smaller truck division/need more time organizing/need more $$ to get it from Calgary yard to my house, etc... I ended up giving that amount to Spikers anyways)


    Anyways, Spikers came over and picked me up. And we went over to the freight shipper's yard to pick the parcel up in person.

    And of course Spikers isn't a professional moving company, so please be aware that the user should still be responsible and accept the risks involved. (I was ok taking that risk). And knowing Spikers, he'll most likely confirm with you if YOU feel safe/comfortable how the haul is being tied/handled.

    Anyways, Spikers helped me get the item all the way into the house (i.e. not just at front door)













    So for Spikers for the truck service.

    Just a heads up, SpikerS is super awesome!

    Helped me move a motorbike on a few days notice. I wasn't in a major rush but he was super helpful and had all the straps needed. It was fairly cold out and fairly far away from where he lived.. still was happy to help!

    Also had a decent chat with him afterwards. Very stand up guy!

    if you're in a bind or need a hand, He's the guy you should go to. In all my interactions with him, he's always been more than accommodating.

    Thanks again Chris!

    indeed, I am!

    however, I hope the chest is empty if we gotta lift it into the truck, as I don't have a ramp for something like that.

    Hey Spikers, wondering if I could get a hand with picking up some rubber floor mats. What is your availability during weekdays?

    There will be 5 floor mats which are 4'x6' and weigh ~ 100lbs each.

    Cheers!

    Shit, sorry I missed this, if you still need it moved, let me know. Codetrap sold his trailer, so it is not an option right now. If I get some extra cash, I will probably get one, just not sure when.

    Next week I am fairly open during the days.

    Good stuff. Will keep Chris in mind for future transportation. How about Pho and gas instead of beer? :-)

    Possibly. This weekend is looking to be a bit busy for me, but I may be able to help, or possibly Monday. ..
