I may be losing money now but I'm going to make it up in volume.

Also it's a 24 hour walk away lease so I have an out.

After carrying 800 lbs of tile up 2 flights of stairs and wrestling 3 custom cabinets and 2 commodes into the house on a 90 deg day I have learned to never again to complain about a 2 hour unload while sitting in an AC cab playing on my phone.

Clickbait, dangya!

You scared me there, Buckeye! About right for an O/O pricewise, though!

Re: the 'first load' ..... Glad you clarified; first pic looked like you were fixin' to build a couple outhouses, haha!

You'll notice "VOLVO" only utilizes three letters.
