  FAQ Answer

---- U-25: What is the most common way to negotiate shipping? ---- If a donor is indeed WILLING to ship their equipment to you, then the shipping particulars can be negotiated between the two of you. Possibly they may want UPS or FedEx to come pick the equipment up, package it, and handle everything, at your cost. At the other extreme, they may want the same, but they would be willing to pay. Typically, you will agree upon an arrangement that is convenient for both of you. In the final analysis, a relationship of mutual trust, assistance, and understanding between you and the donor must be established. Telephone contact may be your best approach. Discuss the matter openly and completely, and when using the telephone, immediately follow up your verbal agreement in writing through email so that there are no misunderstandings afterwards. ----
