    Question: $3,175 Ship to Houston
                     $5,943 Receive, deliver and install
           Total $9,118 - 18% of the total cost for shipping and installation?

I understand having to deliver it to Houston, but once delivered, how much assembly is required and can this be done by the firemen? The supporting documents state "This purchase complies with the Council's Strategic Goal of Fiscally Responsible Government" If this were me, I'd save the $6,000 by assembling it myself.
