Looking to purchase a machine in the north LA area, the seller does not have any tools available to crate and package the machine(2200 lbs, 12x30 lathe).

Just need the machine on a skid, tied down, wrapped and ready for pickup.

Looks like you're having the same problem with this machine as in your first post. What does the shipping company say? There should be plenty of people in the LA area that can handle this, is the machine on the ground and you need whoever crates it to lift it as well or does the seller have a forklift or gantry crane?

Machine movers do this kind of thing all the time, are you using a freight company that doesn't normally move machinery? Seems like buying a lathe sight unseen might be more of a hassle than the savings are worth:confused:

Pictures or it didn't happen....

Cheers and welcome,

John
