I want to know more about cost for the flatrack service.
To ship from Oahu to Maui it was a little cheaper to use the platform than to drive it one the boat. Should come in around $1600. I’ll know exactly when I pick it up on Tuesday after it’s been weighed and measured by Young Brothers. Trucking company has insurance registered with YB so they picked up the platform Friday. Yesterday the forklift set the platform on the ground and the truck was driven on, chained down, then forklifted onto the trailer and will be trucked to the port Monday. I provided a notarized letter and SF97 to YB stating the trucker could drop it off and that it was inoperable and for off-road use so I did not need proof of insurance. Transportation to the port is 400$. So I’ll be into $2000 for shipping cost.

Gongho has been an integral part of the whole process since purchase. After I bought the truck he:
-sent me extensive pictures
- during the release of the truck from Govplanet he did a thorough inspection and documented damage that was not in the auction photos or info. Govplanet made good on the damages
-he moved the truck to his yard, which is at the same facility Iron planet stores all the sold trucks
-did a bunch of trouble shooting
-sourced a used tcm after verifying it was bad by pulling one off of one of his 5 running trucks and installed the tcm
-got the truck running
-coordinated the trucking company lead
-forklifted the empty platform, loaded and chained the truck to the platform and forked the loaded platform onto the lowboy
-all for more than fair compensation
Thank you Gongho.
Man what a blessing it is to have help like that. I am not on Oahu so I have not even seen the truck In person yet

Tuesday I drive it off the platform and home.
Yippee
