WANTED: Wheels picked up and shipped from Southern New Jersey.

Hello! Just wondering if there was anyone in the Southern New Jersey area who would be willing to pick up a set of wheels with no tires and send them to me? The wheels are located in Hammonton, New Jersey. I will of course pay for shipping and a pick up fee. Please let me know as soon as possible! Thanks!

If you don't get volunteers, just ask the seller to drop them off at any local to him UPS store. Just get the store info before he drops them off and make a phone call to them, asking them to package and ship them to you after they get them.

After they are at the UPS store it's easy to deal with the store manager, they will gladly box and ship them for you.

Not as cheap as other methods, but works very well, they box them with good packing.

I've done this several times with sellers who refuse to ship, I just ask them to drop off at the nearest UPS store, and I'll do the rest over the phone..

No one has ever refused to drop them off at the UPS store, they just mostly don't want the bother of boxing them and doing the shipping charges etc.

just a thought...

I will try that thanks. I actually asked him if he could just drop them off at a FedEx store and have them take care of the boxing and what not but he said he didn't want to do that either.

FedEx Will pick them up at his house if they were boxed. You could pre-pay labels and email to him. If not boxed then I am not sure if they will. You could call the local Fedex Kinkos and pay someone to go to his house and you will PayPal them an incentive

Thanks for the suggestion but I don't think he will even do that. he thing is I think from his point of view, the amount that I am paying for these wheels, its not worth it to him going through all of that work.

Shoot me an address if it's not too far I can grab them and drop them off at a mail room.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.
