We do not have access to phone at the moment,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility but here is my mobile number incase you will like to have it 0488 897 169 but sorry i m unable to use it at the moment. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery.

    As regards the payment, I can only pay you through PayPal (EFT)or use same paypal for direct bank bank deposit as it works both ways,by using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details and I will make the payment through PayPal facility to your bank account,all I will need is your PayPal email address OR account number,BSB number and account name and also i will be sending you an attachment of my drivers licence photo so you will be sure that i am legit buyer and i will also need any form of identification from you so we can both be on a safer side...

    With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the freight agent so you don't have to worry about that.
    I have limited time on the computer,your quick response will be appreciated.

    Thanks....
