    OK I ordered 50 alligators months ago. before I would collect the money and order them and it didn't work as well as I wished it had so this time around this is how I'm doing it.
    Presently the gators are frozen and ready for me to obtain. Watch this post for a time that I need payment the cost is $95.00 per gator plus shipping I covered shipping on the last order and had very few reimburse me for the shipping.... gator and shipping have to be paid for up front this time.


    1) no emails or Pm's its too hard to juggle from Pm's to emails and to the post. if you want one you need to post here!

    2) don't send any money I will have a window week or two weeks for payments to be received I don't want to set on payments till I receive them all. and put your taxinet name on the money order please! lol

    3) I prefer a postal Money order for payment I cant exchange that much on my paypal account to use it so I will not accept paypal this time.

    4) I will not ship to anyone that cant be delivered to within 3 days UPS Ground unless you decide to pay for 3 day shipping every box will be 18 in. x 18 in. x 16 in. I'm not sure of the minimum weight charge for this size box but I do know I can ship 2 for the same price! my zip is 14812 you can look up shipping details. if it is shorter shipping time from Jacksonville, Florida the zip is 32219

    5) I will purchase the boxes and insulation if you want more than 2 gators the box will be 18 in. x 18 in. x 24 in.

    6) I already have a list of interested people from various shows if you gave me your name at a show please post here and state that you did.

    I'm hoping this is the last time I do this if I wasn't hammered with requests I would pass but I really enjoyed watching everyone at gator wars and the pictures I have received of gators taxineters have mounted from me. If your state Association wants a similar seminar that Ohio had by Psycho "Dan" I will figure out a price for the gators and I'm sure Dan would love to do the seminar! ;D :p

    Might be a dumb response but you can fit a lifesize gator in a 18x18x16 box.

    Àctualy i can fit 2 in the box but would only do that if it were a one day ride for shipping.

    It's a 4-5' gator- it'll fit!
    Dan's on the move- look out world!!;)
     
  11. I'm interested in a smaller gator (4ft), dont have much room in the house, its filling up! Or if you had one that was 3ft that would be better! How much total with shipping will it be to Michigan? Just want to be sure, skinned or not skinned? Do they have any paper work or permits I will need with them? Where are they coming from?

    pm sent, trying to figure out how to get it to you without shipping ground, 3 day cost way to much and ground is a 8 day ride.

    R.J. if this works for you I will get it out USPS Monday I never dared to ship them this way do they stick to what they post as far as delivery times?

    Thanks Shaun thats why I wont do it that way again it took me forever to get the gators. right now he has 50 ready for me to go get I'm off next weekend so I will compile the list of names I already have and start contacting everyone to see if they are still interested and Dan needs to give me a clue on how many he needs .HINT.LOL Also when I looked up Shipping for R.J. the USPS Priority was faster than UPS Ground and cost was only slightly higher than UPS Ground rates but I never used them so I am asking for any feedback from people shipping with USPS do they really stand by their delivery time quotes? you are a ways away so let me see what I can find out about shipping through the post office first.. Thanks Shaun.

    Blaine I don't know exactly how many as of right now but I'm guessing conservatively between 15 and 20. It could be a bunch more but until we get everything worked out I can't give you a definite number. ;D
     
  20. Thanks Blaine
    look forward to hearing back from you when you get some more info.
