Thanks for your prompt reply.

Unfortunately, Im on my way to Mexico on an official trip(I’m a marketing Executive) and wont be back for another two weeks, I would have come to inspect the piece personally. Im taking your word for true on It though.

I’m okay with the price $2,000, I think it worth it anyway. If you’d like to know, Im relocating to the South Africa soon and I’m trying to gather some good stuff for my new abode. Im buying yours amongst others,quickly! before someone else grabs it.So, I’ll arrange to send you payment ASAP.

However, I’ll have to notify my shipper who’s helping me move my stuff to get set for the pickup of the piece from your place as I MIGHT be delayed depending on how things goes.

PS: In the mean time, kindly get back to me with your Full Name,Contact Address and also your phone# so I can get a check prepared and have it sent out to you ASAP.
