Transportation .... of Stuff

LE Lindsey E Public Seen by 255

Basically...Who wants to transport stuff for Build to the site? I have some info for you here.... And: Which day do you want to take stuff up there?

Deine Mudda would have half a van probably, transport on the Friday.

Hi All....So, I've been collecting and playing with numbers to figure out the cheapest way to transport stuff with a rented van from Berlin up to the site. So far I've spoken with Robbens and Enterprise.
I have LOTS of number-crunching examples to "prove" my findings, which I can post later (in beautiful grid forms :) ) but for now, I'd like to ask all interested people--->>> Which day would you like to drive your stuff up in a van? Possibilities are vast: starting Thursday night (14th) basically through the end of the festival. (Yes, believe it or not, the numbers I've crunched so far show that it is the same price to keep a van for 12 days or to rent it 3 days for Build and then 2 days for Strike....) The van size I've looked at is 4 x 2 x 2. (Maybe we could go one size smaller as well.) So, let me know which day you want to take your stuff and, if possible, if you want the whole van for yourself or are interested in splitting it with another camp and how much of the van you guess-timate you'll need. Thanks! More to come once I've heard from interested parties. <3

@lindseye Hey Lindsey, We talked at the group discussion. Im really on the fringe here unfortunately. What numbers do you have thus far? Hypothetically? Again, our camp is very small and might be able to even do it with a car or 2. Thanks for looking into this!

Im surprised more people havent commented on this though - its a great idea!

People - if you haven't joined yet I urge you to do it.. vans, transporters all owned by local Berlin people..
There are vans available as of today (I checked on the train) for the entire build and strike duration for as little as 150 euros.

TRANSPORT---->>> yes, so in short I have found this offer: van size 4 x 2 x 2 (16m3) for 12 days (meaning no one has to go to Berlin to pick up a van on Sunday for Strike, return date: Tuesday 26th afternoon) including 2400km (= 5 roundtrips plus 200km for local storage runs and movement within Berlin for pickups), 5 insured drivers and a 100 euro deductible insurance policy (lowest I've seen), including diesel calculations for 4 van loads from Berlin and 2 loads back to Berlin (5 roundtrips), total 1400 euros. Divided by 4 camps = 350 euros/each, all included.

Pyjamcakes wants Thursday night/Friday morning.

And then each of the 4 camps which takes responsibility for 1/4 of the cost can divide up their use of it with other camps however they like. Or if a 5th trip from Berlin gets organised, it becomes 1400/5 => 300 euros each (including diesel and extra km).

What do you say? Ideas? Counter-offers?
This is a time-sensitive price (it gets more expensive the closer to the rental date we reserve it).

(Driver details = class B, >25 years old, with drivers license for 2 years)

Thanks Lindsey for doing the groundwork! Dangerous Spacerazzi wants to share. Our dates are flexible, but we're thinking of Saturday the 16th. Ich habe ein Füherschein.

Hello Lindsey. Thank you for your planning. We will need the van for one round trip for Deine Mudda on Friday morning. I will be the one picking up the van and returning it after we unload everything in Freiland. I would like to know the status of the van rent, when and where can I pick it up and where I should leave it for the next one. If you need some help let me know. Is there any calendar or timetable with this info?


Lindsey E Mon 14 May 2018 3:57PM

We could take the next smaller van --- 3.5m long and it would work out to 318 euros each (instead of 350)....what do you think?


Jan-Christian Kaspareit Mon 14 May 2018 4:33PM

We - "Downtempo Saloon" - might be interested as well.
Just got to check if we maybe have a van in our camp (where we might be able to offer some space as well). I'll know more on sunday I think!

hi @lindseye would it be possible to have here writen the model and maybe a picture of the van that will be rented? To get an idea of the size.
