How much stuff is left, and with judicious use of cellophane 
shrink-wrap, how easily do you think it can be palletized?

I can understand not wanting to ship piecemeal, but what about having a 
truck come, load it all up, and haul it away? Wonder if we'd be able to 
get enough buy-in from people interested in individual pieces to defray 
the cost of truck freight to someplace more central. Or at least, to 
someplace where it can be sat on until redistribution can be arranged.
