Itinerary #36, May 9th!! Get Your orders in and ready for transport!!

NOTA BENE #1: Please see my PSA 'ad' posted on January 04: https://www.faunaclassifieds.com/for...d.php?t=804297. It is a proposition that may appeal to a few.

NOTA BENE #2: For established Clients, I am accepting cash payments again and will even encourage them to some degree; id est, I need to make sure there are enough electronic payments to pay for gas because I don't make cash deposits until I am home from itineraries, not that I can't pay for gas with cash, but I receive points and discounts with my GasBuddy, Shell, Exxon, BP and Fuel Forward (Phillips 66 / Conoco / 76) rewards programs, and it's much easier, quicker n' nicer paying at the pump - especially during Winter. First-time Clients will need to pay electronically.

NOTA BENE #3: Payments are to be made IN FULL before departure for any Shipments confirmed prior to departure!!! ...and immediately for any Shipments confirmed after departure!!! And there will be NO refund for a canceled Shipment if I have already departed and configured the itinerary to accommodate the Shipment!!!

Does Delta allow You to pay days or weeks after Pickup? NO!!! So, NO MORE paying days or weeks after Delivery!!! If my service is too expensive to pay up front, go with Delta, plain n' simple! This service is expensive for me, and I am sick of waiting on payments sometimes, such as $150 still owed by Trenton Henley from the December 2022 itinerary (as of 05/21/23) - money already spent on gas, tolls and wear n' tear delivering that Shipment! "Burn me once, shame on You; burn me twice, shame on me", but there won't be a second time.

Corny metaphor: Think of the $125-$150 most Sellers charge for Delta as a restaurant bill, and the extra $25-$50 for my much better service as the tip, and You shouldn't dine out unless You can tip appropriately...but then, many people don't tip appropriately. >.>

For the occasional Client who has repeatedly proven him/herself, if he/she has a very good reason and provides me ample notice, I will allow a li'l leeway IF the majority of payments are in.

NOTA BENE #4: Please follow this link to my Obscure Gems Reptiles, LLC, page: https://www.facebook.com/Obscure-Gem...07953575277946, and read my Conditional Live Arrival Guarantee (more like Exemptions from Live Arrival Guarantee) and Payment Terms & Conditions, both Pinned to the top of the page.

*****

PRICE MATRIX (for multiple Pickups being delivered at the same time, to one [1] Destination, per itinerary)

One (1) Pickup = $175
Two (2) Pickups = $325
Three (3) Pickups = $450
Four (4) Pickups = $550
Five (5) Pickups = $650
Six (6) Pickups = $750
Successive Pickups will continue to be $100/ea on top of the $750.

Another way of wording it:

1st Pickup = $175
2nd Pickup = $150
3rd Pickup = $125
4th Pickup = $100
5th Pickup = $100
6th Pickup = $100
Successive Pickups will continue to be $100/ea.

NOTA BENE: This is when ALL Stops, id est all Pickups + Delivery, are within Standard Territory, id est: All of Pennsylvania down the east coast to Tampa, across the Gulf down to San Antonio, over to San Angelo and straight up through the greater eastern halves/portions of OK/KS/NE, up to Minneapolis, the lower halves of WI and MI, and everything within. Create imaginary latitudinal and longitudinal lines if You will, and there You have it. This is all give-or-take by the way; id est, I don't cut hairs.

Id est; for each Stop, whether Pickup or Delivery, outside of Standard Territory, there will be a surcharge. This is called Extended Territory. Examples:

$25: Laredo, Lubbock & Odessa, TX; Alliance, NE
$50: El Paso, TX; Cheyenne, WY; Grygla, MN
$75: Amado, Tucson & Phoenix, AZ

Very rarely, a Shipment will incur both the Seller and Customer (Recipient) being in Extended Territories, in which there will be two (2) surcharges. Exempli gratia: El Paso, TX-->Alliance, NE would be $250 total: $175 (base fee) + $50 (El Paso surcharge) + $25 (Alliance surcharge).

ADDENDUM: If there are multiple Shipments associated with an Extended Territory Stop, whether incoming and/or outgoing, or associated with the general region, I will lessen everyone's costs - all of the way down to the standard rate if possible ($175), and it often only requires 2 or 3 Shipments associated with such a Stop or region to come down that low! Basically, the $50 surcharge to El Paso for example, would be divided over all Shipments associated with that Stop or region, or negated altogether if, again, 2 or 3 Shipments are associated with that Stop or region (id est, multiple Stops in El Paso or surrounding area).

'The more, the merrier', which makes it more worthwhile to go to these Extended Territories where business is otherwise skimpy, if instead there is more business. I hate the idea of my surcharges, but I need to be fair to myself via not cutting my own throat...West Texas, Wyoming and northern Minnesota aren't exactly cakewalks LOL.


Exceptionally large Shipments still incur their own surcharge (possibly on top of an Extended Territory surcharge[s]), whether a single large animal (exempli gratia, an adult D. polylepis, O. hannah or Lachesis sp.), a large pair of animals (e.g., full-grown B. rhinoceros), or a gazillion animals. It is typically a $25 or $50 surcharge.

April 12: This ad, see below.

...I will be hitting the road again on May 09. For those who are unaware of what all of this pertains to, please read my original ‘(VENOMOUS) ANIMAL DELIVERY SERVICE’ ad posted on 04 September 2020: http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/foru...83#post2222383, finally revamped on 07 May 2022, and read all of the positive feedback on the first of the aforementioned links (11/3/20).

I will detail how the process works which is quite simple honestly, via a pre-typed description that I copy/paste to everyone, and over a phone call if need be. In the meantime, please check out the previous ads for an idea of how these itineraries work, the smooth flow n’ logical order of Pickups and Deliveries that is, and infer what You can.

As of May 09, I have 13 Shipments/23 Stops lined up so far, here is the current itinerary (id est, more Stops [Shipments] will likely be added which, logically, will alter the itinerary, but which all affected Sellers and Customers [Recipients] will be apprised of renewed ETAs ASAP):

≈9,551 miles, divided by ≈30 MPG ≈ 318 gallons, times $3.537/gal (AAA National Average as of 5/13) ≈ $1,126 in gas, let alone wear n' tear (exempli gratia: full synthetic LOF every month/$102.94, tires every ≈3 months/$700, tolls [$200-$300/mo]), food (>$225/mo), et cetera. Not that anyone has ever given me issue on my transport fee, knock on wood, and I thank You All for Your understanding and acceptance, but this is to explain why rates had increased in March 2021 should there ever be any question or complaint, and to further explain surcharges for Extended Territories (see above) which are extended because they have very few Clients/very little business, in which I need to compensate to go out to those territories for 1 or 2 Stops.

Please share these ads like wildfire! The more Shipments, the merrier! And as far as payment options and quotes, please inquire.

I thank You in advance for Your (continuing) patronage, especially in light (or darkness?) of "Operation Viper"!! I offer many benefits to my service, including but not limited to: Daily inspections with videos of each animal sent as proof (Customers love this!); conditional live arrival guarantee (see link above for terms and details); no special crating nor IATA labels; hand-delivery to Your home, work or public place of Your choice; flexibility and versatility including able to change course last minute (e.g. from home to work); direct communication (and timely responses) with the carrier of Your precious gems.

Give Obscure Gems Reptiles, LLC’s, Animal Transport Service a shot, You will not be disappointed!!

Sincerely,

Timothy Gould
